Showbiz Central Interview
After being voted out by my Jarakay tribe members in the first season of the Philippines' franchise of the hugely popular US reality show, Survivor, I was set to make my rounds on GMA's show circuit. The interview by John Lapuz on Showbiz Central was the first of many showbiz appearances that gave me that coveted 15-minutes of fame that Andy Warhol so talked about.

Ending Thoughts
After this initial appearance, I appeared in nearly all the shows of GMA - Unang Hirit, DZMM and DZLS Radio, Sweet Life, (with Paolo Bediones), Walang Tulugan (with German Moreno), Maldita, All Star K (with Allan K, Jaya, Cristine Reyes), Pocket Press Conference, Nuts Entertainment (with Joey de Leon), gala premiere of Quantum of Solace, QTV's Moms and Quickfire (with Chef Rosebud), and the all-star cast appearance for the Survivor Finale.

Survivor Philippines: After The Vote-Out

(Oct 19, 2008) After being voted-out, I'm finally free to talk about the things racing inside my head for too long, I was surprised and perhaps in a mild state of shock when I got voted out. I harbor no ill feeling about the Jarakay members. Betrayal, deception and duplicity is what we all signed-up for by being castaways. Within the framework of Survivor, it was all part of the landscape....more »»
