I have a really good team behind me, Mister Slovenia Organization prepared me very good for this competition. I had a good picture what I can expect on this contest. For the physical preparation, I trained once or twice a day and stayed away from junk food, but this was the easy part… Eating properly and training is something I'm used to it.

9 Out of all the places you visited in Bangkok during the competition which one is the most memorable one for you?
I must say I enjoyed every temple we visited in Bangkok, but the one I remembered the most is Temple of Dawn or Wat Arun, just becouse we could climb the steep stairs and the view was amazing from the top.
10 What was the most exciting and the most frightening experience you had during the Mister International 2012 days?
The most frightening must be the ride with tuk tuk, they don't follow any rules so it was quite scary at times, he he he. The most exciting must be the final show, just the whole experience, I really enjoyed it.
11 Did you expect yourself to go this far at the competition?
To be honest I was aiming for the top, but all I expected from myself, is to give it my best and enjoy the whole experience.
