The Pinoy Biggest Loser Fab Five say they already feel like winners


100511-bl_main.jpgOnly three days to go before the grand finale of the country’s largest reality show series The Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition and grand weigh-in of all the contestants. But as early as now, the Fab Five said that they already feel like winners to be part of the show’s first season contenders.

Twenty-six-year-old Angela admitted she feels more content about her weight now. “Siyempre lahat kami pumasok sa camp na gusto naming lahat pumayat. So heto na binigay naman sa amin. Actually kung ako tatanungin, okay eh. Panalo na ako. Kung ano man yung kinalalagyan ko ngayon, kahit hindi lang sa akin, lahat kami panalo kami hindi naman lahat talaga nabigyan ng chance na ma-experience yung experience namin so nagpapasalamat ako kung nasaan man ako ngayon.

The only other female finalist, 22-year-old Hazel admitted she also shares the same feeling of contentment as Angela. “Ang pinaka-goal ko talaga is to lose the weight tapos sabi ko sa sarili ko pag dumating ako sa puntong yun, I’d be super happy. Sabi ko nga before, kung ang ibigay na blessings ni Lord bumubuhos talaga. So right now kung tatanungin ako kung kuntento ako, yes I am contented as of now. And feeling ko, wala na akong iba pang mahihiling kasi overwhelmed ako sa lahat ng blessings ngayon,” she said.

Hazel’s first boyfriend, co-finalist Raffy whom she met inside the camp, said he had a lot of realizations about his life during the camp. “At first, before kami pumasok, iniisip namin na ito yung game na papayat kami so feeling namin heto na yun, pero ang dami naming na-realize. Like ako, dito ko na-realize na mahal ko pala family ko and dito ko na-realize na for me to fulfill my dreams, kailangan ko rin i-fulfill yung dreams nila. Kasi ako yung dapat maging tatay sa amin. Parang ito yung start ng training para makuha ko yung ultimate dream,” he explained.

Former civil servant Larry said that his joining the BLPE was a way of turning his life around after dealing with obesity. “Nung nakikita ko pa lang sa TV, pangarap ko ng makapasok sa Biggest Loser. Alam ko na dito magbabago buhay ko, na ‘pag pumayat ako mababawi ko yung buhay ko, mapapagpatuloy ko yung pangarap ko sa buhay na maalagaan ko pamilya ko hanggang sa tumanda sila at magka-asawa. Yun talaga yung pangarap ko,” he said.

Businessman Art on the other hand, said his concern was for his health above all things, even though he also echoes the same sentiments as his co-finalists in the show. “Actually, all my dreams, I really try to accomplish all of them. But I have one dream, which is to live longer. Kasi I didn’t think I was going to live long. I was 341 pounds entering the camp. Pero mga two months before that I was 360. So my only dream right now is to actually live longer so I can have more dreams,” he shared.
