Petero Dominiko, 27, hopes to make the national event more memorable, alive and exciting with his participation.
"I would like to make the kings participation more significant because it was just introduced last year. Hibiscus has become a tradition for Suva and something people look forward to every year so I really hope to make it more memorable and successful with my participation," said the determined contestant.
Dominiko is sponsored by Stayin' Alive Corporate Promotion Fiji an ad agency and handles sales and marketing for the company.
He is also a graduate teacher from Corpus Christi College an institution close to his heart.
He has a bold personality and is not afraid of trying something new.
"It's always challenging for me to do that and I would just like to say that if your heart is into something then just go for it.
"Don't wait and sit around, plan and spend too much time on it," he said.
Dominiko has a friendly and warm personality with an everlasting smile on his face.
He hails from Rotuma but was brought up in Suva.
He likes socialising and catching up with friends around the tanoa of grog.
His favourite hobby is reading and it is something he does nearly everyday.
