Bikini Summit winner Gail Nicolas is the first participante eliminated from Pinoy Fear Factor: Argentina, South America. She was sent home in last Friday's episode after performing dismally during the "Una Ronda De Eliminacion" or first round of elimination.
"Medyo kinakabahan pero nilalabanan ko yun, ibibigay ko talaga ang best ko para hindi ako maalis," she said moments before subjecting herself to the freezing waters of Argentina. Host Ryan Agoncillo wished her good luck by saying, "Buenas suerte, mi amiga."
The balikbayan from Austria, Marion dela Cruz, and the veterinarian from Pampanga, Elmer Felix, joined her in the bottom three. They were tasked to free a baby dummy from a car submerged underwater. Marion had completed the stunt earlier with a time of 30 seconds.
However, the 25 year-old model failed to finish the stunt. She could not pull out the baby dummy and she went back to the surface without freeing the doll.
"Malungkot ako, siyempre, parang ayokong sumuko...gusto ko pang lumaban pero siguro may magandang kapalit ito," she said.
The gutsy Nicolas, who identified heights and dark places as her fears, left El Campo Miedo (the participantes' camp) with tears and shattered hopes. She is out of contention for the P2 million prize money, house and lot, and the title of El Ultimo Participante of ABS-CBN's franchise reality show.
This week, the participantes will have to face their fears again with stunts involving great heights, exotic edibles and a thrilling helicopter ride with a twist.
The remaining participantes of Pinoy Fear Factor are Jommy, Marion, Ram, Phoemela, LJ, Savanah, RJ, Jose, Elmer, Janna, and Manuel.
