According to the report, the 29 year-old model who won Manhunt Philippines last year is stripped of the title following the release of the official statement on Saturday, September 21, by Prime Events Production, the producer and franchise holder of Manhunt Philippines and Mister International Philippines. June went on to successfully represent the Philippines in Bangkok, Thailand last November 9, 2012 and won as Manhunt International but it is not sure yet if his international tilt is affected by his dethronement from the local pageant.
"Because June Macasaet, doesn't want to sign the contract with Prime Events Philippines, we don't want to give his remaining prizes. June is not happy with our decision. As a result, we don't gain any cooperation and support from him," the official statement said. "Since June Macasaet is Manhunt International winner, we are going to dethrone him," it went further.
