Only through this way, that I have championed my ideals, principles and the advocacy or campaigns that I fight for and my voice will be heard all corners of the world. Gaining friends and knowledge in this competition and winning the hearts of many is like winning the competition.

Mr Australia is asked why he should risk voicing his opinion if it risks his popularity.
Suggested Answer: Although our aim is to become the best and the most popular in a field of equally competitive and equally handsome young men for us to be able to influence and inspire other gay men to do what is right and for the common good of others, there is more to that I think is more valuable and essential than just mere fame. We should always remember that it is not fame that we are specifically made for but for the causes and advocacy we should champion. Risking of voicing our opinions to what we fight for and for what we believe in compromising fame is significant because it shows us who we are, what we are capable of and what can our voices do for others and it can also give impact or influence to the people, organizations, community and the world over affecting our opinions thus, doing wonders for us making the impossible possible. Popularity is just a temporary phenomenon but voicing our opinion of what we feel, what we believe in or what we fight for truly shows the real us. It is like a birthmark it is forever.
