Hateful posts from social networking sites like Twitter, Face Book, and Pinoy Exchange—every day while the show is being aired—have already goaded some of these celebrities to defend themselves.
The social connections among three leading castaways—Jon, his current girlfriend Michelle, and his ex Aubrey—have made the game even more volatile.
Aubrey's chance to win this edition is now in the hands of the jury lead by Jon and Michelle.
Aubrey is recognized as the mastermind of the most potent alliance formed in the island—an alliance that got Jon and Michelle among the first booted out of the game.
Ervic's position will be as precarious, as he openly made his alliance with Aubrey from the start of the game. And from his role as henchman, more angry heads rolled.
Solenn, for her part, has to face two castaways, Mico and Elma, who trusted her as their close ally but were voted out in the end by Solenn. Aira, a third former tribe member back in Sar Mayee, might also be quite cold to Solenn when voting comes.
It seems that only Aki will be spared from any form of vengeance. But the question remains: Will the jury let a non-Filipino win the very Filipino counterpart- franchise of the most successful reality show in the world?
Will the jury vote from the head and give the prize to who played the game best?
Or will they vote from the heart and award it to who they personally want to see winning?
ELMA, AHRON, Three members of the jury answer this question for PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal).
Elma Muros is voting for someone "na less na nakasakit ng damdamin ng mga ibang players."
The runner and high-jumper, who is also considered a national treasure, explains her stand: "Lahat naman kasi kami nag-effort. Lahat nagkaroon ng determination na manalo. Three million pesos 'yan, e.
"Iba-iba lang ang ginawa naming paraan para makaabot hanggang sa huli.
"Yung iba, dinaan nila sa pagalingan. Yung iba, nilaro talaga nila kaya nagkasakitan ng damdamin.
"Alam ko naman ganoon ang dapat mong gawin para manalo ka pero dapat isipin mo rin na pagkatapos nito—paano na yung pagkakaibigan natin?"
Ahron Villena is still undecided on who to vote for, but he will choose "yung magaling maglaro o yung malinis maglaro."
The attractive young actor elaborates: "Kita niyo naman, ako lang ang bukod tanging natanggal na walang sinabing masama sa natira. Lahat sila sinabihan ko ng good luck.
"Ako kasi, ang suwerte ko, umabot pa ako sa top seven. Noong nagsisimula pa lang, sinasabi nila baka ako ang isa sa mga unang matatanggal.
"Ako rin, ganoon ang feeling ko lalo na nang magsimula nang matalo ang tribe namin noon.
"Feeling ko, kung nilaro ko rin ito tulad nang ginawa nila, na umasa agad sa isang alliance, baka umabot ako hanggang sa top four. Pero, masaya na rin ako na naglaro lang ako sa abot nang makakaya ko."
Moi Bien will go for the one "na magaling sa game."
The "palabang yaya" of Piolo Pascual explains by relating her experience: "Nung natanggal ako, inaamin ko na hurt ako, pero naisip ko rin, aba umabot pa ako hanggang sa huli! Dapat pala talaga ginalingan ko pa.
"Kasi noong lima na lang kami, may nangingibabaw nang alliance na hindi mo na puwedeng labanan kung wala kang immunity.
"So, sa isip ko, kung talagang pinaghirapan kong makakuha noon ng immunity bracelet sa pamamagitan nang magaling na laro, puwede rin pala akong makapasok sa top four."
They have different answers, but sound off a unanimous lesson learned. In Moi's words: "Pero, sa susunod at kung sakaling mapasali ulit ako rito, utak na ang gagamitin ko para manalo, hindi na puso!"
