Pageants are usually made for women, but Midwestern’s own Sharing the Profession of Athletic Training, or SPAT, partnering with Order of Omega chapters, will present “Mr. Mustang,” a male-only pageant, Tuesday, April 14, at 7 p.m. in CSC Comanche.

“We opened it up to all male athletes and fraternities,” said Shelbee Coleman, SPAT member and athletic training sophomore “We are partnering with Greek Week to allow the male fraternities to participate.”

Tickets are only $3 or $2 with donation of a T-shirt.

“The donations are helping Faith Mission Homeless,” Coleman said.

There will be contestants from football, soccer, tennis, golf and many of the fraternities.

Tyteanah Cravin, SPAT president and athletic training sophomore said, “So far we have a total of 18 contestants, from all sports and fraternities.”

Destiny Clayton, SPAT member and athletic training freshman, said judges will declare a winner using a point scale.

“I am nervous yet excited about being a contestant, because there might be a good amount of people showing up,” said Javan Toledo, finance junior and Mr. Mustang contestant. “I don’t even know what my talent will be yet.”

Many of the contestants have either never been in a male pageant or even watched a full one on TV.

“Just like most pageants there will be different categories to see, from swimwear, talent, gentlemen’s wear, Q&A section, and at the beginning an intro portion where the contestant will come out in their organization’s attire,” Cravin said.
