A former teen star and a former hunk model are among the heavyweight contestants of the new reality show of ABS-CBN, Got 2B Fit Challenge.
Del Monte's Fit ‘n Right juice drink, in cooperation with the Kapamilya Network, is piloting a new reality show that is first in the Philippines, Got 2B Fit Challenge. The show is patterned after The Biggest Loser, which is now on its fifth season in the U.S. Got 2B Fit Challenge will run for four Saturdays beginning February 23 at 9:30 pm on ABS-CBN. A one-hour special will be featured during the finals on March 29 to be held in Boracay.
Sampung contestants from around the Philippines ang maglalaban for that one winning slot na may corresponding prize of P500,000 cash, six months contract with Star Magic and the chance to be the ambassador of the said juice drink. Currently, Fit ‘n Right, is being endorsed by Richard Gutierrez, Marian Rivera, and Mariel Rodriguez (who is also the host of the reality show).
Sa sampung napili, isa sa kanila ang former teen star na si Gayle Valencia at isa naman ay ang former model na si Elmer Sanga.
Gayle is the Sassy and Pretty Babe from Cagayan De Oro. A former talent of entertainment writer Rico Miranda, huling napanood si Gayle sa GMA-7 fantasy soap na Encantadia bago siya nag-retire to continue her Nursing course. Ang stress mula sa kanyang pag-aaral ang dahilan raw kung bakit niya napabayaan ang kanyang katawan, so she wants to return to achieve her ideal body weight and size.
Elmer was a part of the winning circle of the 2004 edition of Circle of Ten kasabayan ang Star Circle Quest 2 finalist turned Star Magic star na si Jason Abalos. Elmer became a model and was one of the 69 hunks of the 2005 Cosmopolitan Bachelors.
Kasabayan naman ni Elmer ang mga naging housemates of the first and second edition ng Pinoy Big Brother na sina Sam Milby, Rico Barrera and Kian Kazemi. Stress din sa pag-aaral ang naging dahilan ni Elmer, also taking up Nursing, but it was the nursing board review that he points kung bakit siya lumusog ng ganoon.
