In its 15th year in Malaysia, this annual event originated in Australia and is now held in five countries. Winners achieve celebrity status while past participants have gone on to be actors, models and successful businessmen.
The Most Eligible Bachelor roll call is studded with names of note: Amir Milsson (2010), Henry Golding (2009), Brian Lau (2008), Christian Neal Capes (2007), Awal Ashaari (2005), Mohd Jehan Miskin (2003) and Tony Eusoff (2003), Nazrudin Rahman (2000), now better known as Naz, Hiresh Haridass (2001), now better known as Reshmonu.
This year the Malaysian bash shifted to The Mist Club, Bangsar, and what made it extra special (besides the presence of the 50 hot bachelors) was that it had a Roaring 20's theme. Best Events transformed the club into a speakeasy with a ticketing booth, feather table centrepieces, gold streamers, hanging pearls, posters from that era and even lamp posts at the VIP entrance.
Ushers were dressed as Flapper girls complete with feather headpieces and pearl necklaces.
CLEO had many activities lined up starting with a comedy show for the VIP guests on the ground floor. At 8pm, the ground floor was open to the readers while the VIP guests were ushered upstairs where there was a screening of "The Great Gatsby" in a specially created Theatre. A Burlesque dance performance got the party started followed by the much awaited bachelor performances, games and the announcement of this year's winner- Josiah Mizukami!
