The 15th edition of Rubaru Audi Goa Mr India 2018 is all set to dazzle on the Goan shores for the first time ever. The popular male pageant featuring some of the hottest male models from across India, begins todayIt’s just the first week of March and the mercury is expanding to unbearable levels; but the scorching sun may not be the only thing to be blamed. Courtesy Rubaru Audi Goa Mr India 2018, some of the hottest male models from across the length and breadth of the country, 26 to be precise, have descended in Goa to battle it out for the coveted title. What is even more interesting is that, in a departure from the past editions of Rubaru Mr India, which have been held in the national capital, Goa will be hosting the 2018 edition of the coveted male pageant for the first time ever. Rubaru Audi Goa Mr India 2018 begins today and will conclude with a grand finale on March 10, 2018 at Las Olas in Baga, where the winner will ‘drive away’ in a spanking new Audi Q3, along with lots of other goodies. Rubaru Audi Mr India 2018 marks the 15th edition of the pageant and Team Rubaru is going all out to celebrate the occasion, by presenting the 2018 edition in a never-before bigger and better avatar. With Goan model Siddesh Juvekar at the helm of affairs as the co-organiser, the pageant has managed to attract the right kind of attention and has built up hopes of being a world-class event. It may be interesting to note that Juvekar is the only Goan to have won the title of Rubaru Mr India held in 2016. As such, Juvekar has been instrumental in getting the coveted male pageant to Goa this year, in an unprecedented fashion. After arriving in Goa today, the contestants will take to a busy schedule that includes photo shoots, ramp walk training, a village clean-up drive, cooking competition and so on. A visit to an orphanage is also on the schedule and the contestants will undergo vigorous grooming and motivation classes too. Among the 26 shortlisted, Dalton D’Souza from Anjuna, is the sole Goan contender shortlisted in the Rubaru Audi Mr India 2018. In the past, Dalton has walked the ramp for fashion designers like Wendell Rodricks, Arjun Khanna and Nivedita Saboo, among others. This Goan lad started pursuing modelling when he was in his final year of BCA at St Xavier’s College, Mapusa. After a series of gruelling auditions across the nation, 26 men with Greek god- like looks and notable talent have been shortlisted to compete at the grand finale to be held in Goa. Here in Goa, the candidates will have to up their ante as the competition gets tougher. The men will be judged on various parameters like communication skills, talent, presentation, fitness and many more. After a series of preliminary events and challenges, the best performing candidates will be chosen as the top winners of the pageant and will represent India at some of the most renowned and well-established international pageants for men in the coming months.
