Princess Snell talks to the castaways’ psychologist Dr. Ali Gui, and she tells the doctor that she really can’t bear the fact that there’s no food to eat and the harder part of doing challenges with an empty stomach. She wants to quit, reasoning that there’s no point in suffering another night of no food when she can quit now.
The celebrity castaways find no Princess at the camp the following morning. They all know the princess has quit, although they all have their own guesses of the reason behind the back-out.
Anyway, it seems that three of the castaways want to lead the tribe. Buhawi Meneses is the rightful leader because the scroll he won says so, but Ferds Recio seem to be at it since Day 1, being one of the hosts of Born To Be Wild, a show about the outdoors, and all that, he seems to know it all. But then again, there’s also Jon Hall who has the skills of a tribe leader but he can’t seem to understand that Buhawi is tasked to be the leader. In Jon’s words: “They stepped up already as leaders. Hindi ko alam kung dahil sa scroll na nakalagay mayor na s’ya… Doc from Day 1 gusto n’ya maging leader." Oh yes, Jon, Buwi stepped up as leader because it says so in the scroll. Although, he’s right about Doc Ferds – feeling boss.
Buhawi calls up everyone that morning to tell them of his plans, or should we say of Doc Ferds’ plans. They have to divide themselves into 3 groups. Each group takes care of one of the three important things in their camp life – food, shelter, and fire.
Myka Flores immediately volunteers to be in the food group, handpicking Aira Bermudez, Moi Marcampo, and Elma Muros as fellow group members. The boys in turn plan to make a real shelter this time. Good thing because as Solenn Heussaff puts it, they “were really depressed from the second night” because they only have the soil to sleep on, and only the leaves thrown over the branches of a tree as their shield from the rain.
Buhawi finds a snake under a tree and he calls Jon because he knows Jon “wanted to see wildlife.” Jon comes over with a bolo and without warning hit on the snake a number of times. The snake, though, is able to climb up the tree and hide.
Jon is already making alliance with the boys but since Michelle Madrigal is his girlfriend, Doc Ferds knows they (the boys) are dehado at that point. Of course his girlfriend will ally with him so he (Jon) will know what’s happening on the side of the girls. On the other hand, Jon’s ex-girlfriend Aubrey Miles and the stand-up comedian Pretty Trizsa is now starting to talk about who to vote out. With the Tribal Council scheduled the following day, they have to know who to vote out. Aubrey believes that they should not vote out the strong ones just yet. It’s too early in the game. Trizsa, though, wants to boot out the physically strong ones this early. Little does he know that the boys are planning to vote him out. It could have been Princess, but since she’s gone now, it’s Trizsa they want to get rid off first.
Anyway, I think Aubrey and Trizsa will make a good alliance along with Karen delos Reyes and Moi. I can see Nanay Zita’s (SP 1) character in Elma, though, and Kiko Rustia (also of SP 1) in Doc Ferds (they’re co-hosts in Born To Be Wild, anyway). But really, I hope Buhawi stops trying to speak English, and Jon, Tagalog.
Tomorrow, the celebrity castaways will experience their first Tribal Council. Will someone be eliminated? Or is Princess’ decision to back-out enough boot for their first three days? Be sure to watch tomorrow’s episode on GMA-7, right after 24 Oras.
