The setting was in Palau. All sixteen castaways were in and were divided into two, Airai and Korror.
The oldest castaways, Cris (39) and Carol (45), selected their tribemates. What awesome about it was, Amanda and Jef were in Airai while Suzuki and Marvin belonged to Korror. These four first impression bets got all the airtime they need and clearly the eyecandies of this season. Marvin already created an alliance with Louie and I was not 100% sure if they bring Suzuki into it.
And yeah, this season’s opening credit was better than last year. The overall editing was good but I disliked the commercial breaks. Paolo Bediones did great (just a little tight in the introduction when he said: “39 days, 16 castaways, 1 Pinoy sole survivor) in hosting but couldn’t deny the fact I was like watching a short action-packed tennis clip with numerous double faults in service.
Come on GMA 7, the people deserved more than that. Transfer the show to an earlier timeslot and cut all the breaks that devour the entire substance and quality of the episode. I can’t make a promise I can still watch this season five days a week. However, I see to it I’ll be on GMA Official Blog to get the freshest bites.
