PINOY FEAR FACTOR

Pinoy Fear Factor logo

It's currently hot in the local boob tubes and is currently being buzzed about- Pinoy Fear Factor, Argentina South America premiered last week and I am taking this chance to give my early review of the program. Not that I have been following USA versions of Fear Factor but anyone can notice that Philippine version is really different. I’d say it’s just right to tweak the format for it to appeal more towards the Philippine audience.

First off, the program aced prime host Ryan Agoncillo to be the main face of the show. I see no flaw in Ryan’s hosting capabilities but I think that he appears physically weak and soft. I have been discussing this idea with friends and we all agree to conclude that Ryan will work more effectively with reality shows like Pinoy Idol and Talentadong Pinoy ( TV 5 show Agoncillo is currently hosting).

The Participantes are well selected. There still exists the rivalry of those with well-off life vs. the not so economically powerful individuals. There is still the scope of because the person needs the money, he/she shall win. Of course, this story line will always work, but we have to keep in mind that reality shows are none scripted and the outcome shall be fluid and uncontrolled. At least, we wish reality shows to be working like these.

Finally, the over- all execution and visual texture- this segment, I couldn’t say anything wrong. It has always been the trademark of ABS-CBN to produce quality shows. It is given that the location is really great but I believe that is the film appearance that makes the program visually appealing.

Pinoy Fear factor airs at ABS-CBN at primetime on weekdays after I love Betty la Fea.

yun nga lang masyadong tinitipid yung mga episode para maextend ng maextend... sigh...

tulad din ng survivor. siguro dahil lang sa nasanay ako sa american version

hindi halatang kapamilya ka ha hehe

hmmm yeah pretty much like survivor philippines... and syempre tulad ng pinoy franchise nagiging semi-artista search ang american reality tv shows...

i guess nothing beats the original

im enjoying the show... gusto ko yung mga challenges, makapigil hininga!

kaya siguro inilabas aheadof time yung Pieta para mag register sa mind ng audience ang barumbado side ni ryan... at hindi ma-op sa pagiging host nya ng PFF.

overall, the show is quite better than sp.
