When the reality show “Fear Factor” was shown in the US two years ago, it got me glued to the TV while contestants jumped between swerving trucks, ate crawling, slimy bugs and bulls’ testicles. It was all about conquering one’s worst fears.
Well now, Filipino viewers can see what fearless means for their fellow Pinoys in the new show “Pinoy Fear Factor: South America“. And between outcries of “kadiri! (gross!)”, “Kaya mo ba yan? (can you do that?!)”, we can swoon all we like at new host Ryan Agoncillo.
Ryan Agoncillo wanted the hosting job so bad he even auditioned for it by doing some of the challenges for himself.
I’m doing my spiel with this mountain roach and rodents sa katawan ko,” Agoncillo told ABS-CBNnews.
He also accepted the job even if it was going to take him to Argentina for 30 days, and away from fiancee Judy Ann Santos. I know the couple is getting married, but is there a bun in the oven already? Agoncillo mentioned something about being a father.
