The Brazilian-Japanese model Akihiro Sato is the First Philippine Celebrity Survivor. He outwitted, outplayed and outlasted the other 17 castaways and won the P3M (around $65,000).
Survivor Philippines: Celebrity Showdown is the third season of the Philippine version of the reality television series Survivor hosted by Richard Gutierrez. It premiered on GMA Network last August 30, 2010 and I watched it every night. Since the first week I wanted either John Hall or Akihiro to win because they both played hard and fair. John however, was voted out on the 22nd day as the first jury.
No doubt that the Survivor Philippines: Celebrity Showdown was a success. It is the most well-commented season of Survivor Philippines. The castaways spent their 36 days in the island located at the southern part of Thailand and off the coast of Myanmar. The casting is good and though I like more Paulo Bediones to be its host, I can say that Richard Gutierrez did his job well.
To Akihiro Sato, all the castaways, host and staffs of Survivor Philippines: Celebrity Showdown, congratulations and Bumraksa!
