Its official: this year’s Mr. RMHS has gone viral. As part of Quinn McGonagle (Mr.Daddy), Joe Urynowicz (Mr. $chmoe) and Ben Knauer’s (Mr. Haus) talent they had seniors Mason Mollenhauer, Tony Yuan, and Cameron Morrongiello join them on stage as they did a dance to the song “Old Town Road.” This video has gotten over 659.5k likes and keeps rising on the app Tik Tok. It also was post on Instagram by hotvocals and has gotten 926,745 likes and 1,963 comments. However, that was not the only excitement of the evening.

The show started off with a bang when the 10 contestants killed their group dance. Junior class judge, Ruby Johnson said, “I honestly didn’t think the dance could get better and then they ended it with a 10-person pyramid. It was awesome!” Calab Cruz (Mr.Bearhug) was part of the base of the pyramid and said, “I was really nervous that the whole thing would collapse, so thank God it didn’t.”

After the group dance, the event went into what seemed to be a crowd favorite–swimsuit! Sophomore judge, Lily Marweg said, “This year the boys got really creative, from oiling themselves on stage to wearing a ski suit.” No matter what the boys did during this portion the crowd went crazy!  

Then came the dreaded interview portion. Personally, I see why Student Council didn’t take it out because it helps the audience get to know each contestant’s personality better, but asking 10 boys the same 10 questions gets a little dull at times. Next year it would be cool if there were only 3-5 questions for each boy and if the judges could ask each boy a final question. Similar to how it is done in the Miss USA pageants.

Ending the competition was the highly entertaining talent portion. Calvin Brandll (Mr. Dad Bod) started this portion with a lip sync to all of his favorite songs while Jose Gomez dancing awkwardly in the background. Another lip sync followed from Mr.Bear hug who had his six of his closest friends join him on stage and performed “7 Rings.”  Then came the battle between Conner Culhane (Mr. More Than Just a Barrel) and Trevor Hash (Mr. Heart Throb). They ended the battle with the song “Country Roads” and the whole audience joined in. After the group of boys that are now Tic Tok famous performed, CJ Hendrie (Mr.Quizlet) was up and did something never seen on the Mr.RMHS stage–speed painting! Once the two minutes were up, he flipped his painting over and revealed a portrait of Bob Ross. Mr Hollywood Jacson Swain also had a unique talent which included performing a comedic monologue. Michael Naffier (Mr. Good Flow) topped the competition off with a dance that literally brought the judges to their feet.

Freshmen judge, Caitlyn Lovato said, “All the boys scores were super close and they definitely didn’t make the decision easy on the judges.” Once the judges calculated the scores Micheal Naffier was crowned as Mr. RMHS and Quinn McGonagle was named Mr. Big Heart because he raised the most money for the Children’s Hospital.  


Overall, Mr. RMHS was an amazing event and I believe everyone in the audience would agree. The auditorium was a great venue for the competition and all of RMHS will be anxious to see who competes there in 2020!
