Amali Krigger, a senior computer science major, was crowned Mr. Incredible on Friday, Dec. 1, at the third Mr. Incredible contest on the Albert A. Sheen Campus on St. Croix. Krigger also won Best Professional Wear, Best Talent and Mr. Popularity. The contest was sponsored by the University of the Virgin Islands’ Office of Student Activities and held in the Cafeteria on the Albert A. Sheen Campus on St. Croix.

“My Mr. Incredible experience was way more fun than I thought it would be, and it forced me outside my comfort zone. At first I only did it because my girlfriend was making me do it, but it turned into something I wanted to try since this is my last semester at UVI,” said Krigger. “I felt many challenges leading up to the competition.”  Krigger recalls some of the challenges he faced throughout the competition which includes lost luggage and coming up with material for one of the competition’s segments. He also shared doubts about his own victory. However, he was elated to share these experiences with other incredible men from UVI.

“The energy and feedback I’ve gotten just from participating in the competition was amazing,” Krigger added. “Now that I’ve won the competition, that energy and feedback has increased; thus motivating me to make sure I use my title to make a positive impact.”

The Mr. Incredible contest was created with the vision of showcasing the talent and empowering young men at the University. The third Mr. Incredible contest, a University based initiative, will allow male contenders to develop leadership skills, confidence, and networking skills.

Mr. Incredible, Amali Krigger, was awarded a $500 cash prize, and first runner up Matthew Perry received a $200 cash prize. The Mr. Incredible Competition was presented by the Office of Student Activities on the Sheen Campus.

“It was a great experience. I learned a lot about myself as a student, as an artist, and as a competitor. It provided a chance to bond with my competitors, where I originally may not have,” said Perry. “It was an amazing opportunity and I would recommend it to anyone interested. Ten out of 10.” Perry, a freshman mass communication major, also won the title of Mr. Intellect and won Best Pick-up Line.

“The highlight of the show was when the guys and I huddled backstage right before the official results were announced,” said contender number one is Andre Joseph, a junior accounting major. “Special thanks to all who worked hard to make this show successful, and a special thanks to those in attendance for their support.”
