As soon as the lights came on, the boys knew this was their time to shine. They awaited their cue and the music blasted and they were soon competing to see who was man enough to take the crown.

Juniors and seniors from campus organizations took part in the annual Big Man on Campus beauty pageant.

When I first asked to borrow a dress she thought that I was joking.”

— Zach Kvale, junior

“I chose to compete in Big Man on Campus because after seeing last year’s competition. I decided that making a fool of myself, one of my specialties, I might as well do it in front of a crowd,” junior Zach Kvale, who represented band, said.

The competition started with an opening number dance routine to a mash up of different songs ranging from R-E-S-P-E-C-T by Aretha Franklin to Despacito by Luis Fonsi.

“I’m not exactly a dancer, so performing the opener was a new experience for me and it definitely opened up a world of possibility for me,” Kvale said.

Senior Sebastian Garcia, who is a part of the new Hip Hop club, danced for his talent.

“Dance was my talent because it’s one of the many things I’m good at and it’s my most notable talent,” Garcia said.

During the show, the boys were judged on their talent, best dress attire and sports wear. Some boys took the word ‘dress’ literally. Kvale wore a long black dress and a blonde wig that he borrowed from his girlfriend.

“When I first asked to borrow a dress she thought that I was joking,” Kvale said.

The winner of the fourth annual Big Man on Campus was Garcia.

“I didn’t expect to win, but I’m glad it happened,” Garcia said.
