Kodie Macayan representing the Philippines has been crowned Mr Gay World™ 2020. 

Kodie Macayan was announced the winner after a stunning virtual finale which was the culmination of two weeks of challenges for nine delegates from across the globe. 

Moved online due to the ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic, the competitions were streamed via the Mr Gay World™ Youtube channel and included pre-recorded pieces from all delegates as well as visuals from areas across the host country South Africa. 

After the challenges were completed the top five ranked delegates were then asked a further question to allow the top three to be announced. 

Kodie Macayan from the Philippines was presented as the winner with Marek Piekarczyk from Poland announced as 1st Runner-up and Vicente Miron from Mexico announced as 2nd Runner-up. 

Kodie Macayan will reign consecutively with the Mr Gay World™ 2021 winner making it the first time in history that two Mr Gay World™ Delegates will reign at the same time.
