Video: Meet the Gorgeous PNP cop finalist in the country's biggest male pageant.Have you been to NAIA(Ninoy Aquino International Airport) and noticed a tall man with the PNP (Philippine National Police) uniform? No, you're not lost in a movie set where the man is playing a cop role.
The man is indeed a policeman doing his rounds at NAIA, specifically terminal 3. At present, he serves as a member of the Aviation Security group, where he applies his expertise in bomb disposal and aircraft anti-hijacking. Throughout his six years of service, he has been recognized with 13 medals for demonstrating exceptional skill in responding to disasters and civil disobedience.
Police Officer Mariano Flormata, Jr., known as PO2 Flormata, shared that his friends and colleagues often joke about him leaving the Philippine National Police (PNP) to pursue a career in show business. However, he always responds that being a cop is his true passion and first love.
Although being a policeman has always been his childhood dream, he confessed that he also has an interest in modeling. Thus, he yielded to the persuasion of his friends and participated in the Misters of the Philippines 2014 male pageant, competing under the name Neil Perez. Given his striking features and well-toned physique, it comes as no surprise that Neil has secured a spot as one of the top 20 finalists in the competition.
Neil expressed that this is his inaugural venture into a competition like Misters of the Philippines. As a police officer with a photogenic smile, he believes that the pageant will present him with opportunities that can improve his financial standing. Additionally, the competition offers him a chance to showcase his diverse skill set beyond law enforcement.

The leadership of the Philippine National Police (PNP) sees no issue with PO2 Flormata's participation in the male pageant. In fact, his superior, Chief Supt. Christopher Laxa, who heads the Aviation Security Group, encouraged and pledged his support to him.
According to Chief Superintendent Reuben Theodore Sindac, the head of the Philippine National Police (PNP) Public Information Office, participating in extracurricular activities is acceptable, provided that it supports and enhances their work, while also emphasizing that police officers are human beings too.
PO2 Flormata affirmed that his top priority is to continue his profession as a policeman and that his participation in the contest serves as an encouragement to his PNP colleagues to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
The Grand Theater of the University of Makati will host the Misters of the Philippines 2014 finals on September 7. The competition will award four major titles: Mister International Philippines, Mister Model International Philippines, Mister Tourism International Philippines, and Mister Global Philippines. The victors will represent the Philippines in international male beauty pageants.
”Extra-curricular activities are okay as long as it supports and complements their work. It also enhances the idea that the police are also human.”- Chief Superintendent Reuben Theodore Sindac, PNP Public Information Office chief
