The Biggest Loser Fab Five share lessons they learned from host Sharon Cuneta


092911-sharon_main.jpgAs The Pinoy Biggest Loser grand finale nears this coming October 8, the Fab Five finalists Larry, Art, Angela, Raffy, Hazel, and Larry shared what they have learned from the show’s host Sharon Cuneta.

For 26-year-old Angela of Rizal, the Megastar taught her the importance of perseverance. “Madami kaming natutunan sa loob ng camp. Kay Miss Sharon kasi, lahat ng nangyari sa amin sa loob ng camp, nakaka-relate siya. So ang sinabi niya sa amin, ‘Pag nadapa, huwag kang hihiga na lang. Matuto kang tumayo.’ So yun yung ina-adapt namin ngayon. Nagkamali na kami once eh. Inabuso na namin sarili namin so heto na, nakatayo na kami. Hindi na kami babalik, hindi na kami madadapa pa ulit,” she shared.

36-year-old bar owner Art also echoed the same sentiment and admitted he appreciates the Megastar’s efforts in reaching out to them during the show. “Naranasan niya yung pinagdaanan ko before na separation. Feeling ko at that time, life was over for me. Sinabi din niya na life is not over, it moves on and you live a new life. So kung ano man yung pinagdaanan ko, I just have to keep my head up and keep moving,” he said.

For sweethearts Hazel and Raffy, the Megastar showed them how to gain back their confidence in themselves. After finding love inside the house in each other, the two have continued to work out together at the gym even after leaving the camp. “Dumating ako sa point na tanggap ko na lang na mataba na ako. Forever na ako mataba and mamamatay akong mataba. Pero tinuro sa amin ni Miss Sharon at ng lahat ng bumubuo ng Biggest Loser na may pag-asa. Kailangan mo lang ng focus at determination para makabalik dun sa goal mo sa buhay,” she admitted. Soft-spoken Raffy said Sharon renewed his fighting spirit. “Kay Miss Sharon ko natutunan na pangit rin pala manalo ng walang kalaban-laban. She made us believe na malakas pala kami. Dun namin nakita na kahit na may kalaban ka, dapat malakas pa rin bilib mo sa sarili mo,” he added.

The finalists also shared what they plan to do with the prize money, should they win as the very first Pinoy Biggest Loser and take home the P1 million cash prize, a newly-furnished condominium unit from DMCI Homes, a Vespa scooter, a 40” Sony Bravia internet TV, Whirlpool appliances, and a lifetime Fitness First membership.

Former policeman Larry said he will use the money for the future of his kids and spend it on their education. Angela wants to build a house of her own with her husband so they can move out of her parents’ house. Art would choose to pay it forward by using the money to benefit others who will need it more than him. Hazel said she will prioritize her family and help pay for her sister’s college education. Out of the five, it was 22-year-old Raffy from Negros Occidental who already has a very clear picture of what he will do if he gets the top prize. “Tatlong bagay. Una is mabigay ko sa kapatid ko yung dream niya which is to go to Hong Kong Disneyland. Yung pangalawa is yung makapagtayo ng maliit na negosyo kahit mga food cart business, and the third is lahat ibibgay ko na sa family,” he shared.
