Cambodian to "Compete" at Mister Working Man International 2019

Post by CEOCambodiaNews » Thu Oct 17, 2019 11:45 am

The words "compete" and working man" have taken on a whole new meaning.

Phnom Penh: Twenty-six-year-old actor, Nara Roth, is off to Thailand to compete in the new international competition, Mister Working Man International, which is being held for the first time this year.
Image
The Cambodian said in a pre-departure interview at the airport that he had become the national representative at the Mister Working Man International 2019 event, after Ith Sothea, a former Mister United World 2019 candidate, had proposed his name to the national selection team. In addition to being an actor, he is also highly qualified in singing, modeling and design. If he does not win as planned, he will try the competition next year in Myanmar.

Representatives from more than 20 countries will participate in the official competition in Thailand for this first event from October 17 to 21, 2019.

Lol. Shades of the USSR exemplar worker movement. But in name only.
Acting, singing, modelling and design hardly matches digging up 227 tons of coal in a single shift.

Long live comrade Alexsei Grigoryevich Stakhanov, Hero of the Workers Revolution :head shot:

There are contestants representing Switzerland, Hawaii, USA, Malta, Cameroon, Thailand, Philippines, Cambodia, Laos, China, Malaysia, Borneo and Columbia.


Now that Mr Cambodia has arrived, the competition will be stiff. Pun intended

work·ing girl

nounINFORMAL
a woman who goes out to work rather than remaining at home.
EUPHEMISTIC
a prostitute.

Perhaps euphemistically the men are gigolos
