Another Philippine version of famous reality shows.

Pautakan! Pagalingan! Patatagan!


So here I was, chatting with fellow Filipinas about patriotism and the beauty of the Philippines, and lo’ and behold, I stumble across the pinoy version of the long-running hit reality-competition show: Survivors.

Survivor Philippines!

Who will be the first Pinoy Sole Survivor? 18 castaways will compete for the title this September.

Will it be the laundry woman with the strong hands or the male model with the chiseled abs?
Could it be the driver who wants to achieve a better life or the nanny who dreams of showbiz stardom?

The first Pinoy Sole Survivor could be any of them or the 14 other hopefuls all vying for the P3 million grand prize in GMA-7’s reality show.

After thousands of Filipinos flocked to local auditions, GMA-7 decided to give more people a chance to be part of this once in a lifetime event. Instead of 16 contenders, Survivor Philippines picked 18 castaways from different corners of the country and from all walks of life.

Among them is a female farmer who seeks greener pastures, a call center agent who wants to quit the graveyard shift and a basketball player who wants to take a shot to win the jackpot.

Isolated in an island, deprived of basic necessities and challenged to chart unfamiliar territory, 18 strangers will fight it out armed only with instincts, strength and wit.

Expect fierce competition, willful deceit and sly strategies as each challenger tries to be the last one standing. Who will outwit, outlast and outplay all castaways to become the first Pinoy Sole Survivor?

Find out as Survivor Philippines fires up your TV screens this September only on GMA-7.
