The last seven Pinoy Fear Factor participantes—namely Manuel Chua Jr., Jommy Teotico, Marion dela Cruz, Janna Dominguez, Savanah Lamsen, RJ Calipus, and LJ Moreno—already had a slight idea about the challenges that were prepared for them in Argentina, South America. In a previous press conference, most of them mentioned about the stunts they saw in different versions of Fear Factor of other countries, but they are not sure if they would be able to these themselves.

Since the show is about to end tomorrow, three of the last seven contestants looked back and related the most challenging stunt they did during their stint in Pinoy Fear Factor.

Returning actress participante LJ said that the hardest stunt she did was the one where she became the eliminated participante. She lost her chance during the last stunt of the "sexta ronda de eliminacion," which was the inverted bungee stunt that required her to hold her breath underwater while hanging upside down.

"Yung pinakamahirap na stunt sa kin, yung stunt that got me eliminated because yun yung fear ko eh, being under water," LJ further said.

The next eliminated participante, RJ, considered the stunts that involved heights as the hardest ones for him. "Ako po siguro yung sa mga heights. Sa matataas, kasi takot po talaga ako sa mga matataas na lugar," he said.

Meanwhile, Savanah lost her chance to become part of the final four participante when she slipped in the rotating wall stunt of the eight round of elimination.

FINAL FOUR. Before Manuel got booted out last night, February 18, because he took too long in coming out from the box that was buried by sand. During the press conference last Monday, he was asked regarding his will to win the game.

Super Manuel, his tag in Pinoy Fear Factor, said that he would do everything to win in the reality show. "Siguro kung susukatin yung mga pinag gagagawa ko dun, halos pagpakamatayan ko po kahit ano'ng ipagawa sa akin, kahit anong stunt tinodo ko, binigay ko lahat. Siguro yun pa lang pwede nang basehan kung gaano ako kadesperado na makuha yung premyo."

However, the man who set two Fear Factor world records failed to become the"El Ultimo Participante" in a close fight with Janna.

Jommy, on the other hand, said that since he was already there, he might as well finish the every stunt with whatever he got.

He explained, "Kasi yung palagi ko pong sinasabi, kahit nung una pa lang po may mga stunt na ako na parang susuko. Kaso nandun na ko eh, so talagang umpisa pa lang nung sumali ako parang malayo, ayoko naman sumali kung matatalo ako. So, talagang desperadong-desperado ako na makuha yung premyo, kasi yun yung goal ko eh, yun yung pinunta ko sa Argentina. So talagang kahit anong ilatag nila gagawin ko kasi andon na."

Like Manuel and Jommy, Marion was also determined to get the "El Ultimo Participante" title, the house and lot, and the P2 million. However, he said, he never expected that he would be able to build a good friendship with other contenders.

"Noong nagpunta po kami do'n, iisa lang po yung goal namin, manalo. Hindi po namin in-expect na magkakaron kami ng bonding, magkakaibigan talaga kami. Hindi ko po in-expect yun, kaya hindi ko rin dinamay yung kumpetisyon dahil sa mga friendships namin."

The only girl among the remaining three contestants said that although she's really close to her co-participantes in El Campo Miedo, she does not think of it while they were doing the challenges.

"Hiwalay po yung personal na [relasyon] sa laban," stated Janna. "Pag nasa laban na po kami, hindi na po kami magkakakilala, magkakaaway kami, yun nga hindi pwede kasi competition yun."

Find out who will be the next eliminated participante as Jommy, Marion, and Janna face the second stunt of the ultimo ronda de eliminacion tonight, February 19, after Showbiz News Ngayon on ABS-CBN Primetime Bida.
