We did not know what to expect for the second serving of the Souqpinoy Slimdown Challenge. Will the aspiring challengers be less? Maybe, they’d think we already have chosen a complete roster from the first batch. Will there be more? Who knows, they might be inspired by the campaign and additional days for screening.
It was a happy sight to see many fellow Kababayans finally deciding to do something about their health. The same excitement, varying emotions, and air of anticipation filled the venue. Aspiring challengers poured in and went through the same drill.
The Medical Team, Lester Borja and Jeanilyn Larona, from THE MEDICAL CITY all set and at the service of the participants.
The aspiring challengers were welcomed by Souqpinoy’s Miss Giby and were endorsed by the Medical Team for basic screening procedures. Participants will have to meet the overweight requirement to qualify in the preliminaries. Schedule of the live telecasts were also discussed to them so that they can confirm and coordinate their work schedules. Indeed, dedication and commitment are both defining factors from the beginning.
The defining scale. Aspiring challengers should qualify for the preliminaries; 20% over their Body Mass Index (BMI).
The medical team will assign them numbers and the aspirants will wait for their turn to be interviewed.
Guest judges Nina Carpio and Junie Sorsano grace the panel with their presence together with Coach Sugar and Judge Darby.
The judges couldn’t be happier with the attendance of the aspiring challengers. They intently listened to each story, asking follow-up questions if there’s anything they want to clarify; probing deep so that they can see the glimmer of commitment. After all, the challenge will run for six straight weeks with varying routines for 5 days in a week.
The judges getting to the heart of things – the aspirants’ motivations, defining moments, and more.
The interviewees shared it all out; retelling their weaknesses to their deciding moments; their goals and expectations, to their own life story. Each one has their story to tell. Emotions characterized the evening; there were laughter and tears; assurances and queries. The judges, too, did not shy away from revealing things about themselves, their journeys and continuing goals to the delight of the interviewees.
Waiting for their turn with the panel of judges.
All in all, it was a jam-packed evening — from the arrival of the aspiring challengers to their panel interview with the judges. We look forward to revealing who will complete the list of the second batch of the first-ever fitness reality show in Dubai. It’s the only challenge that when you lose; you win.
