The Manhunt Contest started in 1987, when Alex Liu, pageant director of Metromedia Singapore, decided to stage the first male model contest in Singapore, as there were numerous pageants for women and none for men. Liu consequently planned and engineered the first Manhunt contest in Singapore. Manhunt became Manhunt International in 1993.
Vietnam began participating in Manhunt International in 2002, with supermodel Binh Minh. Model Quang Hoa represented the country at this contest in 2006. In 2007, Ngo Tien Doan won the Best Body title. In 2008, Nguyen Van Thinh came second in the online poll.
