When in Manila, it’s that time of the year when local reality shows are the craze! We just can’t get enough of watching real people battle their way to survival, and in the process, show their emotions, raw and unadulterated. And with the opening of two of the highly-anticipated reality shows on Philippine television, we now have something to make our weekday nights exciting once again!
First up is Survivor Philippines Celebrity Doubles Showdown, the show where 10 pairs of celebrity contestants get to be stranded on an isolated area for 39 days and battle it out to become the Pinoy Celebrity Survivor.
The 10 pairs of castaways for Survivor Philippines Celebrity Doubles Showdown are finally revealed!
