Huge success came with the new millennium. David Zepeda (now a popular Mexican actor) took 2nd place during the Manhunt International 2000 final in Singapore. In 2007, Carlos Navarro Morales was promoted to TOP 15 and won the Manhunt Americas title during the Manhunt International 2007 final in Korea. Since then, Mexico has been waiting for another success! Will Luis Enrique Zepeda match his predecessors? We’ll find out in February!
