COLUMBIA — Juan Mundo-Sifuentes became the first Mr. Mizzou, a beauty pageant for men held Wednesday night at Memorial Union. The pageant included four segments: opening act, talent, evening wear and final question. Preparations for the event, organized by co-directors Kaitria Sievers and Sabrina Braun, began in mid-January. Braun got the idea from her high school.
