Survivor Philippines Celebrity Doubles Edition claims to be twice better than the other reality shows here in the Philippines. It promises to give audience double the action and double the drama season for Survivor Philippines. For this time, Survivor Philippines is shot in the beautiful island of San Vicente, Palawan located in the heart of the West Philippine Sea, also known as the South China Sea, exhibiting the beauty of nature here in the Philippines.
Survivor Philippines Celebrity Doubles Edition is said to have the most grumbler set of castaways yet. The season’s castaways include Stef Prescott who is the critic’s favorite back in Starstruck 4. In an interview of PEP.ph with Stef, the later admits the real reason for joining Survivor Philippines. Aside from the three million peso prize the winner gets, she also wishes to have an improvement in her career after Survivor Philippines.
“Given na yun na gusto ko talagang sumikat. Yung career ko, lumevel-up. Every time na may show ako, lagi kong sinasabi na sana ‘eto na yung big break ko. So, eto na naman ako—sana ‘eto ang big break ko.”
In another sense, she wants to be a better person through the challenges she will face in Survivor.
“Hindi lang basta for career-wise. On a personal note din naman, ang Survivor talaga is going to change you as a person for the better,” she explains.
In her five years in showbiz, she reveals that there are times wherein she loses hope on her career.
“Five years na ako,” she said.
“Sabi ko sa mother ko, ‘Ma, mag-aral na lang kaya ako?’ Dumadaan ako sa gano’n. Pero every time na nag-iisip akong mag-quit, may dumarating namang pasundut-sundot na shows. So, nagpapasalamat na lang ako.”
Despite the hope for popularity, Stef decides to just take whatever opportunity there is available.
“Before, gusto ko talaga bida. Yung bida ako. Pero ngayon ang ini-aim ko na lang, basta may trabaho, masaya na ako. Pero if ever na maging maganda ang effect sa akin ng Survivor, gusto kong maging bida siyempre,” she said. “Ang sa akin, ang showbiz, parang Survivor,” she adds.
