CANDIDATE NO. 1

GABRIEL LIM
Age: 23 years old
Height: 1.72 m
Weight: 75 kg

Gabriel Lim is a final year university student currently majoring in Mechatronics. He has always been interested in mathematics and physics, as well as in their application to real life.

He was first introduced to the world of fitness during his final year of polytechnic when his friends would come together after internship to bond through working out at the gym. This habit continued throughout his days in National Service in the police force, and is currently his form of stress relief.

As a simple introvert, Gabriel’s dream is to pursue an engineering career in the aerospace industry where tools and machines keep him company. In his free time though, anime, gaming and working out are his passions.
Manhunt Singapore 2017 is Gabriel’s first foray into media and pageantry and he is looking forward to the experience and growth this journey may bring.

“Rise up; take courage and do it.” – Ezra 10:4

DERREL LEE
Age: 28 years old
Height: 1.75 m
Weight: 72 kg

Plagued by bullying and teasing from classmates when he was in primary school, doing poorly in his "O" levels, and making blunders in his polytechnic projects that cost him missed opportunities to qualify for university to do what he loves … it would have been easy for Derrel to live a miserable existence.

However, Derrel always had an optimistic view on life that things will turn out for the better at the end of the day if he learns from his mistakes. Now at 28, he has a decent job that he enjoys on a day to day basis, and spends the bulk of his free time exercising, or developing his creative juices and producing content on his own social media space, notably Instagram, which has gained traction over a period of time.

With only a Film, Sound and Video diploma certification in Singapore, Derrel has managed to make his impact in both the education industry and the social media scene within a short span of 5 years. Starting out as an allied educator after failing to enter into a university course of his choice, he supported full-time physical education (PE) teachers in schools during PE lessons and inspired the next generation of students on the importance of fitness. After 3 years in the education service, he decided that it is important to learn from the experience he had acquired as an allied educator to apply it into his next line of work in his career.

To him, learning is a two way process. "When you teach, they respond. When they respond in different ways, you learn as well." This made him realise the positive effects of continuous learning through surroundings, visuals, and experience and that inspired him to develop an extensive visual portfolio through photography, modelling and engagement on social media.
"As the saying goes, you may be a jack of all trades, but it's all good if you decide to be a master of one."

Derrel is a proud contestant of Manhunt Singapore 2017.

RYAN HO
Age: 19 years old
Height: 1.77 m

At just 19 years old, Ryan Ho is a professional model that is currently signed with a local modelling agency. He was scouted just 2 years ago via social media and since then has decided to give modelling a try.

Ryan has also just graduated from Republic Polytechnic with a Diploma in journalism, where he had picked up useful skills such as photography, video editing and public speaking. He was a former journalist at Singapore Press Holdings, where he served his internship.

IVAN LEONG
Age: 24 years old
Height: 1.78 m
Weight: 62 kg

Ivan Leong, currently 24 years old, has always been inspired by role models who overcame the odds to become better people.

Growing up, he never had much confidence in himself as he was variously labelled as “skinny” and/or “scrawny” (48kg, 176cm).

In 2009, when the movie “Twilight: New Moon” was released, he was challenged by a friend who said that Ivan would never be able to achieve the physique the actor Taylor Lautner, had in the movie. Driven to prove her wrong, Ivan started his transformation journey and slowly fell in love with fitness. He has discovered since that with one’s effort and hard work, literally anything is possible.

With this, he began to find unique ideas to implement fitness into lifestyle instead of the other way around. In late 2016, he started posting mini fitness and music videos on Instagram. Soon, it progressed to YouTube videos in 2017 with one goal in mind - to inspire people to reach for their goals whatever it may be

When he isn't wolfing down sandwiches in record time, he is working towards his goal of Changing People's Life One Step at a Time!

NG U-JIN
Age: 29 years old
Height: 1.80 m
Weight: 85 kg

Ng U-Jin believes that no one is ever too old or too weak to start working out. He used to run marathons when he was younger and at one point, he ran six marathons and even an ultra-marathon(100km). 6 years ago, he was introduced to CrossFit by a friend and his approach to fitness completely changed

His first experience with CrossFit was a humbling one and it challenged him to new levels never felt before. This motivated him to pursue it further and I eventually became hooked on the sport where, he believes, the fittest on Earth are found.

His strong desire to train and guide athletes then led him to become a full-time CrossFit coach. Currently certified at CrossFit Level 2, he is also certified in CrossFit Defence, CrossFit Striking, CrossFit Powerlifting and CrossFit Gymnastics, which he completed in Australia and the United States.

Taking a leap of faith, U-Jin decided to step out on his own at the end of 2013 to satisfy his entrepreneurial aspirations to establish his own CrossFit box.

It was definitely scary staring down initially at a path of uncertainty, but, today, watching his athletes achieve their fitness goals, has made it all worthwhile.

BORIS TAN YI JIAN
Age: 26 years old
Height: 1.80 m
Weight: 77 kg

Having discovered earlier on that a typical 8-5 job isn't his cup of tea, Boris embarked on a challenging career as a financial service consultant.

Despite people's scepticism towards this ill-famed industry which makes the work difficult, Boris remains passionate about financial planning and ethical selling to help his customers decide on the right products in achieving financial security. Many would say tough job, but Boris agrees that's what makes it rewarding.

Besides his professional life, Boris shares a few hobbies which he is actively involved in during his free time. He has enjoyed drumming since his Poly days and was even involved in a local talent-search competition called SuperBand. His love for music isn't just that, he sings a lot too (mostly in the shower though). For fitness, Boris also indulges in boxing, for the strength and tenacity embodied in this form of sport that he appreciates.

Being one with a thirst for knowledge, Boris finds a great deal of pleasure in reading. A few of his favorite books relate to topics such as Psychology, Investments, Barbering, and oh, as well as his favorite pastime - 9GAG. On a serious note, he aspires to be a teacher in his retirement years to share his knowledge and experience with the younger generation which hopefully help them make better decisions in life.

Well, 'nuff said bout everything Boris. Here's a fun fact to share: Boris hasn't visited a hairdresser in two years ever since he picked up barbering!

JOHNATHAN ERNEST
Age: 25 years old
Height: 1.82 m
Weight: 94 kg

At the young age of 16 years old, Jonathan took responsibility for a decision that would affect him for the rest of his life. It was at this age that Jonathan became a single father.

Although very young himself, he took on the responsibility of providing for his daughter quite seriously. He dropped out of school and took a job in sales to provide as best he could before enrolling in National Service. After completion of his civic responsibility, he knew that obtaining a further education would allow a brighter future for him and his child. As such, he enrolled at the PSB Academy and is currently finishing a diploma in Sports and Exercise Sciences.

Throughout his studies, Jon witnessed his mother increasingly suffer with arthritis. This experience charged his desire for working in his field and now has ambition to work in a related field. Jon would like to help others in a medical capacity and pursue a career in pharmaceutical sales.

SAIFUL FAZRIE
Age: 28 years old
Height: 1.82 m
Weight: 78 kg

Saiful Fazrie was a former youth football player for the Tampines Rovers, but was compelled to pursue a career in the fitness industry instead. Although he had always wanted to be a professional football player, when a serious ankle injury occurred, he found a new passion in fitness after being amazed at the recovery process after he decided to hit the gym!

One of Fazrie’s biggest challenges was to overcome unemployment, where he was unemployed for a year and only had $20 dollars in his bank. Today, Fazrie is gainfully employed as a Sports Manager cum Event Coordinator for a sports megastore, where he oversees 19 people under him after having worked his way up. He spends his days doing everything he can, and almost never rests!

In 2016, he was engaged to his partner of 3 years, but was left at the altar in December. In January 2017, Fazrie was scouted by the scouts of Manhunt Singapore 2017, and agreed to join the competition to share his stories and to inspire others.

A very laid back and confident character, he hopes to enjoy his journey and embrace whatever comes his way!

SIMON SHEN
Age: 27 years old
Height: 1.84 m
Weight: 81 kg

Simon Shen is a full-time chiropractor working in a clinic in Orchard. Originally from Taiwan, his family had moved to New Zealand when he was only 8 years old. Having grown up in a very multi-cultural environment enabled Simon to understand and work with people from different backgrounds. After graduating from the New Zealand College of Chiropractic, he decided to move to Singapore in search of a new adventure.

It didn't take long for him to fall in love and settle down in this diverse and unique country. He is currently a PR in Singapore.

Throughout his life, Simon had always taken on roles that required responsibility and leadership including being the school's head prefect in secondary school, a children's Sunday school teacher at church and the senior chiropractor in his clinic. These roles have given him an opportunity to interact with people from all walks of life and have taught him to respect and appreciate people around him. He is easy going and loves a good laugh so don't be afraid to say “hi!” if you see him around.

Simon has a wide range of hobbies ranging from watching movies, playing various musical instruments to outdoor activities such as basketball and night cycling at East Coast Park. His dream is to start his own chiropractic clinic so that he may full-heartedly treat patients, helping them to get relief from chronic pain and optimise their body function. This will allow people to enjoy better quality of life in their fullest potential.

His selected charity is Singapore Youth for Christ, which is an organisation that helps teenagers to find themselves and to learn the proper values of their life. He firmly believes that the teenage years is the crucial time that moulds and shapes an individual hence proper guidance for our young people is vital for our community and our world. He hopes that by joining Manhunt he can be an inspiration to young people around him and have an positive impact on their lives.

VINCENT CHUA
Age: 25 years old
Height: 1.89 m
Weight: 77 kg

Vincent is currently serving as a regular in Changi Naval Base. He was formally a Naval Diver. He grew up as the second child in the family and had a comfortable life with his family since young without having much struggles.

He was exposed to the gym through his dad when he was 15 years old. The experience kicked off his passion for the fitness industry. He joined dragon boating when he was 19 years old and in Polytechnic. He enlisted into NDU after he graduated and was exposed to a tougher training to become a full fledge combat diver. Through the adversities, he was able to prove his worth to earn the badge and his way up to be a Naval Diver Officer. While he was serving as an NSF, he was also participating in dragon boating competitions, representing SAF to compete in local races.

Through these milestones in his life, Vincent realizes that not only does he have a short time when he is young to pursue after what he wants to do, he also has limited time to spend with his family. With these thoughts, he always wanted to try out different things and to motivate people around him to also do the same. Furthermore, he also has plans to organize bonding events to get families to come and spent time together with one another. He has this thought as he realizes that family time is the utmost important aspect that we should all prioritize, despite our busy schedule.

PHONE PYI KYAW
Age: 23 years old
Height: 1.82 m
Weight: 73 kg

Phone Pyi Kyaw (“you can call me Phone”) was originally from Myanmar but has lived in Singapore for the past 12 years. For most intents and purposes therefore, Phone may be considered “localized”. Ever since he completed his National Service in March 2017, he has been working at Certis Cisco as a Fitness Trainer.

It struck him that there is no better time than now to achieve his goals at this his prime age. Hence, he has enrolled himself into an American Council on Exercise (ACE) Personal Trainer Certification Course as a first step to further pursue his passion in fitness.

This passion dated back to his Secondary School days when he was really skinny at the height of 178 cm. Critiques regarding his physique were showered upon him, and that negativity was undoubtedly overwhelming. Despite these negative vibes, he took the opportunity to transform such negativity into strength and motivation and started working out consistently.

Phone strongly believes that Manhunt will be the best platform for him to reach out to people and advocate this belief and passion for fitness, inspiring them to never stop believing and chase their dreams. Most importantly, he wants to show people that anything is possible in life with strong belief, hard work and dedication!

DESMOND TOH
Age: 23 years old
Height: 1.81 m
Weight: 72 kg

As a kid, Desmond was an introverted, soft-spoken boy who lacked self-confidence. He never could have imagined himself being a personal trainer who would have to deal with clients on a daily basis.

His passion for fitness started during his National Service days, when a campmate of his introduced him to weights training. Since then, he has stayed loyal to his 5-days-a-week training regime, and continuously acquires new knowledge of exercising and nutrition in his free time.

While pursuing his degree in Professional Communication at the Singapore Institute of Management, he took up freelance personal training for close to a year. When he graduated, he worked with a gym and learned more about working with clients and how to cater to their physical and mental needs.

Later, a friend encouraged him to join a health start-up which specialises in physiotherapy and personal training for injury-rehab patients. As he was previously a medic with the Singapore Armed Forces, the prospect of working in a healthcare and fitness organisation interested him. In his time there, he learnt how to handle clients with special physical needs and value-add to his clients with the help of trusted physiotherapists.

In his leisure time, Desmond loves to read self-help books as he feels he still has a lot to improve on handling life in general.

SHAUN LEONG
Age: 21 years old
Height: 1.81 m
Weight: 73 kg

Starting of as introvert individual and also growing up as an only child, Shaun Leong always found that there must be a point of time where he needs to learn to be independent and attain his own dreams with his own hands. At the age of 9, it was the turning point for him when his form teacher gave me a leadership appointment. From then on, he felt that he should improve myself in all areas. Over the years even till today, he is still learning how to guide and engage with different kind of people. This is the kind of experience that motivates him to strive on.

Shaun is serving as a NS Platoon Sergeant in 2SIR. Approaching his final phase in the army, he aims to impact his boys (new recruits) in both the teaching and also the hard way, where they’ll understand the intentions behind every lessons rather than following the flow. This idea came ever since in 2016, where he had a back injury and had to be placed out of course from OCS. It was one of the down moments of his life, but he managed to convince himself to move on to SCS and eventually graduate as commander to impact the next generations of gentlemen.

Shaun has always been interested in different things (Filming, Acting, Music, Sports, and Martial Arts etc). To him, hopping around getting a glimpse of all these trades and having a basic foundation is exciting. He was appointed a President of the pioneer batch of Chinese Drama in 2008 and from then on, he had something towards acting and also filming. In Poly, he would come up with ad hoc ideas with his group to make his presentation slightly more interesting (e.g. videos).

In summary, Shaun enjoys trying out different things as he feels that it’s an experience gained for him and if someone else needs certain opinions, he can provide certain advice based on his own knowledge which eventually will help them. Next up, he hopes to move more into fitness and also dance.

BADRUDDIN RAMLE
Age: 26 years old
Height: 1.80 m
Weight: 80 kg

Most people would not have guessed that Badruddin was a former introverted fat kid who weighed more than 100kg and was diagnosed with borderline hypertension at the age of 15. The year 2006 marked a turning point when Badd, the name that he is cordially known as, decided to transform his body and his life to achieve his dream of becoming a more purpose driven person with some goals in life and to live more meaningfully.

That was the start of a journey that has seen Badd developing his interest in dance and performance arts which landed him into performer roles in Universal Studios Singapore, MediaCorp, charity shows, competing in dance competitions, as well as a choreographer in his school dance productions during his Polytechnic and University days.

That journey has opened up new experiences and vistas for Badd. Not only has he gained new physical prowess and agility, but also a new found mental fortitude and self-confidence. Badd believes that you can do anything as long as you set your mind to. He hopes to inspire others by taking part in competitions like Manhunt that set the platform and allow him to be the voice for many.

An adventurous, driven and focused individual, Badd never stops pushing himself beyond his capabilities and he is always hungry to take on new challenges and acquiring new skills. This go-getter believes that one can never stop learning, be it for personal excellence or discovering new cultures when he meets people during his travels. A strong advocator of healthy living to his colleagues, peers and loved ones, he would love them to live joyously without much worries on health concerns as he understood how it felt like to be bothered by that. Thus, the term ‘dancer who lifts’ is very well-acquainted of this friendly giant.

Badruddin is a proud contestant of Manhunt Singapore 2017.

RYAN CHEN
Age: 31 years old
Height: 1.71 m
Weight: 76 kg

Ryan started off doing lab research in Biopolis, helping to research the possibility of altering cell membranes to prevent harmful viruses invading healthy cells.

He quickly found that it was all but impossible for him to hold a job in a lab, or in any office environment for that matter. This is due to the fact that Ryan has a condition known as narcolepsy. Narcolepsy affects about 1 in 2000 people, or 0.05% of the population and causes victims to be unable to regulate their sleep/wake cycles, often resulting in them falling asleep at inappropriate or even dangerous times. Narcoleptics often live the entirety of their lives in a constant state of sleep deprivation.

Ryan was diagnosed during his National Service and received medical treatment. However, the treatment for narcolepsy itself was to simply use central nervous system stimulants which include drugs such as amphetamines, which are the parent compounds of other drugs such as MDMA (Ecstasy) and methamphetamines (Ice). Although the drugs used for treatment are not recreational drugs, the effects and side effects could be similar. It took some time, but Ryan decided that he had to take his life into his own hands. Rather than relying on the medication to get him through the days (each dose would keep him awake for roughly 3 hours), he found a different path.

Although he often fell asleep without warning during low energy activities such as work, or while driving, he found that he could completely avoid any such occurrence during periods of physical activity. Ryan made the decision to break into the fitness industry so he would be able to perform to the best of his abilities and live his life to the fullest without having to rely on a lifetime of drugs. He has now been using his calling as a personal trainer to help people change their lives for the better both physically and mentally for the last 8 years. Ryan would like to help spread awareness on mental and neurological health issues that often go undiagnosed for far too long, leaving sufferers feeling alone and lost, wondering whats wrong with them. He wonders how different his life would have been, had he known of his condition from a young age, yet regrets nothing, wanting only to make the future better than ever.

GLEN QIU
Age: 32 years old
Height: 1.73 m
Weight: 70 kg

Glen Qiu started off as an accounts assistant, but has progressed to become an auditor for 7 years now. Despite the stability and well paid nature of his job, Glen always enjoys helping people to get healthy and to be an inspiration to overweight people to achieve their dream body. His dream is to one day open his own chain of fitness outlets to share his knowledge and experience about exercise and basic nutrition to help others live their life to the fullest.

Glen started working out and eating right because of overweight issues due to stress and over-eating. After some time, he grew passionate about gym workouts and learnt about the right nutrition that the body needs as he sees changes in himself. With that, he decides to challenge himself to join his first ever physique competition in 2016 despite the busy nature of his work. Throughout the 4-month preparation for the competition, he learnt to juggle his work and discipline training as well as dieting. Even though he didn’t manage to get any placing in his category, opportunity surprisingly came to him as he was being scouted for Manhunt Singapore 2017.

Manhunt Singapore 2017 will be Glen’s first exposure into the media and he is looking forward to this new adventure with excitement.

DAMIEN KOH
Age: 30 years old
Height: 1.81 m
Weight: 83 kg

If you were to turn the clock fifteen years back, the Damien you see would be a vastly different individual from Damien today. Not physically, but in terms of personality.

In his youth, Damien was quiet and withdrawn. His lack of confidence, compounded by his poor fitness levels made him the target of bullies throughout his secondary school life. All that changed when he decided to embark on a journey to become the fittest and strongest individual he could possibly strive to become. Year after year of training in strength, endurance as well as delving into martial arts changed him. And most importantly, he found out he could help to change others who were just like him in the past.

Currently at 31 years of age, holding a job as a personal trainer, his main goal is to show the people who come to him that they should never ever doubt themselves and that they can forge themselves into better people through achieving their goals, just as he did.

ISMAIL KHALID
Age: 37 years old
Height: 1.79 m
Weight: 81 kg

Ismail Khalid, 38, works full-time at Sthe ingapore Civil Defence Force as a Fire & Rescue Specialist cum Hazmat Specialist. He is currently pursuing a degree at Singapore University of Social Sciences.

A person who has a soft spot for animals may be the reason why he has 4 feline friends at home. He also loves romance and class, for instance, weddings, flowers and handsome furnishings. That is one of the reasons why he forays into baking, one of the many passions as it tests creativity into making something inspiring. At times, he sings to erase away the boredom.

Ismail have three passions in life. One of which is dragon-boating. He loves the camaraderie and team work in the sport. In addition, you learn how to coordinate with the rest of the team members to make the boat "fly". It is also a great cardio! Lifting weights, on the other hand, is an old love of his, even before dragon-boating. For him, it is very important to look fit-good. It improves your persona and confidence. Well, it is not even surprising that Manhunt 1995 spurred me to be what he is today.

Baking is the latest passion and this therapeutic pastime assists in channeling all negativities out from his system. He have gone through a lot of courses, both locally and internationally, to bake tasty, good-looking pastries. He do hope that one day, he is able to make a good name out of it.

In 2017, he has gone through quite a few setbacks. One of which is the loss of his best friend, his beloved grandmother whom he cared for almost 16 years. She became bedridden in 2001 due to stroke and he took charge from there. Feeding, bathing and changing her diapers, to him, were quite a challenge at first. Notwithstanding the fact that I had to travel to hospices and hospitals if she were to fall ill. But now, they are only memories that I would cherish for the rest of my life.

Ismail is a proud contestant of Senior Manhunt Singapore 2017.
