Ex-participantes reveal bets for El Ultimo Participante
In their first press conference last January 14, the five eliminated participantes of Pinoy Fear Factor revealed their bets for the El Ultimo Participante or Grand Winner of the reality show.
But the reports got me confused. According to TV Patrol World (video below), the ex-participantes voted for three contestants. On the other hand, according to Yehey.com, RJ Calipus, aka El Gato de Parola, got the majority of the votes.
TV Patrol World reported the Host Pheomela Baranda's and model Gail Nicolas' bet is Manuel Chua, aka Supermanuel. Chef Jose Sarasola and Vet Elmer Felix went for RJ. Cager Ram Sagad meanwhile voted for Jommy Teotico, aka "Scorpion King."
On the other hand, Entertainment Editor of Yehey.com Edgar Cruz wrote four votes for RJ [see the article in this url, http://www.yehey.com/entertainment/celebs/Article.aspx?id=232598] and one vote for Manuel. Elmer, Jose, Ram and Gail think RJ would win while only Phem chose Manuel.
What's the real score? Is TV Patrol World misleading us so that we shouldn't think that Manuel will win the two million pesos and the house and lot? Or did Yehey.com got the wrong report?
ABS-CBN has the motive of keeping us from thinking Manuel would win. Currently, Manuel is dominating the games. Everyone is thinking he will bag the prize. It will be good for the ratings if Manuel's name is kept on the news. Yehey.com on the other hand, has no motive of falsifying reports at all.
Here is the video:
Who do you think is giving us the wrong reports?
