His photograph became viral after one of their customers at SeaOil EDSA uploaded it on social media.

This opened doors to new opportunities for him including modeling for international fashion designer Francis Libiran and becoming the brand ambassador for SeaOil, the gas station where he had worked for six years.

Eventually, he was asked to join the “Misters of Filipinas” competition.

According to an article published by Rappler, the 29-year-old from Bulacan, admitted that he had a hard time deciding whether or not he should join “Misters of Filipinas” but he eventually decided to move out of his comfort zone and become more confident.

He was among the six winners in the “Misters of Filipinas” competition held at the Resorts World Manila last September 18.

Querol didn’t expect that he would be one of the title holders and admitted that he was very nervous especially during the question and answer portion.

Because of this, he said that aside from working on bulking up, he will also train hard for the question and answer portion for the “Manhunt International” pageant next year.

Querol really did come a long way from being a gasoline boy.

Here is the full list of winners:

  • Miguel Mari Guia – Mister International Philippines
  • Christopher Dulagan – Misters of Filipinas Man of the World
  • Charles Joseph “CJ” Querol – Misters of Filipinas Manhunt International
  • AR dela Serna – Misters of Filipinas Supranational
  • Isaa Janda – Misters of Filipinas Man of the Year
  • Vincent Jarina – Mister Asian Philippines

Congratulations to all winners!
