Contestants in the Mr Bondi pageant heat last Saturday rose to a variety of challenges, including building Lego models, spitting dummies and ripping up copies of the Wentworth Courier.
Organiser Sarah Mulvin said the heats were hilarious and the contenders were “full of sport”.
From 35 entrants, 12 finalists were chosen and will now compete for the Mr Bondi tiara and sash this Saturday.
“It’s about inner beauty - they don’t need to have a wax, a spray tan or a bikini,” Ms Mulvin said.
“The local community has been very supportive. Many were saying it’s about time there was something like this.”
Finalists will be interviewed on Bondi FM and judged in a speed dating round.
“We’ll be asking them to talk about their feelings - whether they like long walks along the beach and whether they have a six pack - of beer,” Ms Mulvin said.
Tickets for the finals include a vodka cocktail and live entertainment from 5-9pm on Saturday at Bondi FM, 2/143 Curlewis St, Bondi. To buy tickets, visit moshtix.com.au or email email@example.com for two-for-one tickets. (Credit: The Wentworth Courier)
