Even though our very own man didn’t grab the title, he is technically, Africa’s most desirable man or in other words, Africa’s most eligible bachelor ( as referred by the Mr World titles).
This is because he topped the African chapter. Kevin, a former Mr. Catholic University looked exceptional with the Kenyan flag.
The 21-year-old model contested with top models from around the world in the competitive finals.

He said he remains still thrilled by the amazing outcome of the competition. According to Mr World Kenya Kevin Oduor:
“I am still ecstatic. It is amazing. I can’t believe this. It is an awesome feeling. I am lost of words and I thank God for all this,” a jubilant Kevin told Pulse minutes he was announced the fourth best. Surprisingly, I have been expecting to score well here and I am grateful I made it through.”
And as the results trickled in, the Mr and Miss World team lead by the Kenyan pageant holder madam Terry Mungai joined in celebrations praising Kevin for making Kenya proud.
It is the first time in countless years that Kenya had made it to the Mr. World finals since the competition took a break with the holders focusing on with the Miss World event.
