MISTER INTERNATIONAL 2013
On November 21, 2013, Jose Paredes made history as the first man from Venezuela in the pageant's eight-year history to win the Mister International title in Jakarta, Indonesia. Jose was raised on a farm in Apure state in Venezuela. He spent much of his time in contact with nature, spending time caring for the animals, milking cows and learning how to manage the farm. In his spare time, Jose enjoys swimming and working out at the gym. Before being crowned Mister International 2013, Jose was a graduate in international accounting and runs an event agency. While obtaining his degree, one of his professors took a lot of photos with him because he knew he would be famous someday. He was right as he went on to win the prestigious title of Mister International Venezuela 2013, gaining him the right to represent Venezuela in the 2013 Mister International Pageant. Currently, he is enjoying a successful career in entertainment in the Philippines.
