11. Junrey Balawing
Junrey Balawing holds a title that would make no man proud.
At 59.9 cm, he is the shortest man alive, a title he snatched from Nepalese Khagendra Thapa Magar, immediately after turning 18. He looks like a 2-year-old that went on growth strike.
Like most extraordinary men you won’t believe exist, this little man from the Philippines is anxious to find love and marry. Now here’s a real challenge. All the odds are against you when statistics say that 99.999% of all women are taller.
You will be happy to know Junrey was born a century too late for him to have no option but joining a freak show. Instead, generous contracts are heading his way, exploring our society’s insatiable appetite for the bizarre.
