Six celebrities formed two teams that competed in physical and mental challenges stretching from Quezon City to Tagaytay.
Melissa Ricks, Paul Jake Castillo, and Gretchen Fullido comprise Team Sonic Blue while Gretchen Ho, Andrei Felix, and Manuel Chua form Team Sonic White.
GAME ON: The Chevrolet Sonic Celebrity Challenge will air on April 6 and 13 at 6:00 pm on Studio 23.
Although Melissa was initially hesitant to join for fear that she and Paul Jake might get into petty fights, she says about the experience, “It’s a good experience lalo na kaming dalawa na we did something challenging together.”
The most difficult task for Gretchen Fullido was, “Pero sa 'kin yung pinakamahirap siguro or yung pinaka-challenging siguro yung featuring Tagaytay’s best food.
“Kasi meron kaming tatlong dishes na kailangan i-prepare na hindi namin alam kung ano yung ipi-prepare ng kalaban.
“So siyempre pag pumunta kang Tagaytay, ano bang specialty dun, di ba, bulalo?
“So dapat…regular bulalo baka pareho pa kaming restaurant na puntahan.
“So dapat may mga twists and something special so guessing game and then sa pagpili nun, hindi na nasa kamay namin, e. Nasa judges na yun.”
When Gretchen Ho was asked to recount her “game on” moments, she admitted, “Probably when we were selling the buko pies.
“Kasi nung ginawa namin 'to, paano ba namin mabebenta yung buko pie for a higher price? And stopping all the cars and forcing them to buy something na, di ba…
“So what we did, we really stopped the cars tapos sabi namin, libreng TV coverage 'to at may kasamang pagmamahal.
“Pero mas challenging kasi we had to run from the other end to another. It was challenging kasi we had to convince the people to buy and it really took time.
“Pero that was fun. That was a fun challenge kasi yun nga, nagpa-picture pa yung mga tao dun.”
Manuel Chua agreed with his teammate Gretchen Ho. He added, “That was the most challenging, selling the buko pies. Kasi at first we didn’t know where to sell it or to whom we should sell it.
“So sabi ko nga, harangin natin yung mga kotse kasi kung maghihintay tayo ng mga dadaan na tao, mahirap.
“So nagcause kami ng traffic, actually, super traffic, kasi nung una wala naman, e.
Andrei Felix revealed the toughest challenge for him, “I think yung circuit training.
“Each member had to do a specific training for upper, lower body and core.
“Si Gretchen Ho, teammate ko, siya yung gusto niya sa lower bilang volleyball player. Si Manuel bilang hunk, papable, yung top.
“Sa ‘kin napunta yung core kasi malaki daw yung core ko, oo. Sabi ko, patay na, sabi ko. Sa ‘kin yun talaga yun kasi I hardly go to the gym.”
