From the moment the 24 beefcakes walked out to the tune of hit song Blurred Lines by US singer Robin Thicke, there was no stopping the audience.
With party clappers, horns and whistles, the 600-strong crowd almost brought the house down at local club Neverland II at St James Power Station on Wednesday night at the Manhunt and Senior Manhunt Singapore 2013 finals.
The women - and some men - eagerly snapped pictures of the contestants in their Waveline swimwear, and their appreciation of the guy's hot bods showed all over their faces.
They also chanted and sounded their horns for their favourites Hadi Omar (Manhunt) and Andy Chng (Senior Manhunt).
But the hunks and their supporters were blindsided by the actual winners, who, when compared to the rest of the guys, were more slender, reports The New Paper.
Jason Tan, 21, and Gilbert Tang, 42, were crowned Manhunt and Senior Manhunt Singapore respectively at the three-hour event, which also celebrated the pageant's 25th anniversary.
Hadi and Chng took home the runner-up positions in their respective categories.
Both Tan and Tang are first-time pageant contestants and somewhat unexpected winners in a group filled with pageant title-holders, personal trainers and fitness models.
