Filipina-French artist Solenn Heussaff
Brapanese model/actor Akihiro Sato
Sexy actress Aubrey Miles
Model/Cager Ervic Vijandre
The Spoiler has been spoiled. We all know that the person being rumored as the winner of Survivor Philippines: Celebrity Showdown won’t be her because the Final 4 is made up of Actress Aubrey Miles, Brapanese model/actor Akihiro Sato, model/cager Ervic Vijandre and Fil-French beauty Solenn Heussaff.
Last night, the four underwent the final tribal council and were grilled to death by the jury members. Tears flowed. Raised voices abound. Tensions almost reached breaking points. But in the end, one of them will be voted as the winner of the reality competition and a cool PhP3,000,000 in cash.
Who’s your bet? The manipulative Aubrey? The Submissive Ervic? The Sneaky Solenn? Or the Good (and remorseful) Guy Akihiro?
My sentimental pick would be Akihiro because he is the most well-rounded among the four in terms of mental and physical participation in the game. His valuable help in the camp in terms of food hunting and the like cannot be denied as well. And in effect, he is the ‘least evil’ in the quartet, game-wise that is. A far 2nd for me is Solenn but I doubt if she will get majority of the votes to seal the victory from the jury members who look at her as just one lucky girl who made her way to the top with minimal ‘survival’ scars to show (aside from her foot stitches) and an alliance made more strong by Ervic’s infatuation in her.
The Final 4 during the start of the last tribal council (L-R): Ervic Vijandre, Solenn Heussaff, Akihiro Sato and Aubrey Miles.
So who do you think will win?
Watch out as the Live Finale of Survivor Philippines: Celebrity Showdown unfolds next Friday, December 3, 2010 on GMA-7. Host Richard Gutierrez will announce the Celebrity Sole Survivor by then.
11/26 Update: After the completion of the last tribal council, host Richard Gutierrez announced that the Final 4 will be trimmed to a Final 3 which will add one more member to the Jury. The twist is that the votes will be counted during the Live Finale in Manila. So even before the 7th Jury Member is known, the castaways will need to be patient enough to wait for the finals. Afterwards, the 7-member jury will then vote on who the Ultimate Celebrity Sole Survivor will be among the last three castaways. Stroke of genius, I must say, in order to avoid damaging spoilers to the results.
