You would be fortunate indeed if you qualified first as the most handsome man in Monaco because the title Mister Monaco gives you a guaranteed shot at the title of Mister France in competition with winners of titles from other French regions including Corsica. We mention Corsica because the prior winner of the National title is Corsican.
