“A MAN with good moral character and witty.”

These are the qualities event organizer Rudy Robles said they are looking for in choosing the top winners for Ginoong Bacolod 2022.

Robles said it is not enough that one is just good looking, he should also have the charm.

“Holding this event after two years of hiatus is quite challenging,” he said.

Unlike other pageants, Ginoong Bacolod wants to uplift the imahe of Bacoleño men being among the pioneers of male pageantry in the highly urbanized city, Robles explained.
