Which want you think is more challenging and more exciting?? The Fear Factor or the Survivor?? Well, the show of Survivor Philippines was already started last night in the GMA.. And I had watched some of it but I don't really feel any exciting in all the things that the participants had undergo.. Well, the fear factor is not yet showing in the ABS-CBN it will be soon.. I just watched the trailer and I think it more exciting to watch than the Survivor because it is more adventurous and the challenges is really fantastic.. What about you?? Any views or comments about the things that I've said above ?? Hope you will share your thoughts and opinion in my discussion.. Happy posting..

i've never seen survivor yet on gma but the trailer for pinoy fear factor is pretty much the same on the original fear factor in terms on intensity and difficulty of the challenges. i think it's landslide victory for fear factor.

Yes, I agree with you.. Try to watch the Survivor Philippines in GMA and I will assure that most of their challenges are not exciting and unchallengeable.. I'm excited to watch the fear factor in ABS-CBN.. Anyways, thanks for sharing!

I like Survivor better! Just the fac that these people live together for 40 days away from friends and family. Without much for food and sheltor, not to mention hard physical activity. Have to give them credit! My vote Survivor. If we all just lived like half of what they do everyday and not just forty...theworld might just be a better palace. :)

Well, in that point I agree with you.. Living in that kind of place without anything that you used to have well that is really difficult.. I had experienced before living in a mountain bringing only few clothes and few foods for over night was really difficult since there's no comfort room or bath room to used, since anywhere can be a comfort room and I really don't like the feeling of what I've experienced.. haha Actually, I keep on going adventure in the mountain for how many times and still I can't stay their for more than 2 days.. So, living in that kind of places for 40 days isn't that good and comfortable.. Thanks for sharing..

The way the world is going I am about half tempeded to go to the montains or jungle and live, in order to not have to worry about all the vanities..I also think that if you spent the first 2 or three days rigging a shower and toilet and then growing and raising food in the days to coome not to mention took some basic things that a person might be able to live very comfortably and with out the stress of having to make the ends meet. I think the time spent in the out doors is something that we all need alittle more of we are all so far out of touch with our indiginous roots. When are planning your next adventure? :)

Fear Factor i guess. Even the U.S. Edition is very challenging and i dont have any idea of the Survivor Philippines because i dont watch the shows of kapuso. Im a loyal fan of kapamilya network.

lol.. So, your Kamapilya, huh?? Well, me too.. I love watching the ABS shows than in GMA.. Same with you, I'm much more interested to watched the Pinoy Fear Factor than the Survivor Philippines.. Well, i had watched some of the episodes of Survivor Phil. but for me it isn't that challenging.. I hope the Pinoy Fear Factor is more challenging and exciting watch.. I can't wait to watch their shows.. Thanks for sharing..

i like fear factor most because the stunts and those live animals and insects make it more the fun..i really do not know if they could stomach those crawling creepies but i prefer to watch fear factor philippines style...the contestants were not shown yet...if i was fit enough i would have gone and auditioned..too bad i was on my last stage of pregnancy when they have auditions here in cebu.

Oh! congratz... Well, I'm really excited to watch the pinoy fear factor especially that their contestants are Filipinos.. We all know that Filipinos are scared with those kinds of insect especially if they are going to eat it or put it in their bodies.. Maybe, if I'm the contestant I will be very scared even to hold those insects.. Thanks for sharing..

I was an avid fan of both original shows. For Survivor, i got tired of all the alliances and back to back - back fighting among the cast aways. I do not know how the Filipino cast aways will deal with alliances though. I have seen the Pinoy Fear Factor and it looks exciting to watch because it looked like the original. I hope so. And let's see because Pinoys are really not that disgusted with yucky things unlike the Americans. Maybe it still depends. Of course, they wouldn't eat balot no? The disadvantage of Survivor is that you have to watch it from the beginning to be able to fully understand and enjoy it. While the advantage of Fear Factor is it can be exciting and enjoying to watch in any time and in any episode.

I agree with you.. Well,I had watched the beginning of Survivor Phil and I was surprised with it but as I'm watching the next episode it seems that their challenges isn't getting exciting and somehow boring.. I don't know it is just my opinion and observation about their shows.. On the other hand, I cannot say that Pinoy fear factor is better than Survivor Phil since it is not yet showing and I just only saw it in the trailer.. It is hard to conclude right now..Anyway, thanks for sharing..

I would definitely say that survivor is more challenging. Fear factor isnt as physically gruling and most are about facing a fear. Survivor u can go hungry, u cant be as clean as you like..and are more likely to be injured. No doubt that survivor is more challenging

Neither, both of those reality shows stink. My three favorite reality shows are "The Mole", " Gorden Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares", and "Stan Lee's 'Who Wants to be a Superhero?'".

I'm also a big fan of fear factor.. I hope the fear factor in ABS is really fun to watch same as their trailer.. Well, in the survivor phil as for now I don't like their challenges.. I don't really watch everyday the survivor because I feel boring watching their shows.. Anyway, thanks for sharing..

Neither, I think the second round of fear factor is just gross. Survivor is watchable and I enjoy watching it. I prefer not to watch too many reality shows and am content watching a few fictitious shows if I get the time.

well, i don't used to watched reality shows because sometimes I'm asking myself if it is really a reality show or they are just scripted.. They were just telling the viewers that it is a reality show.. oh well, thanks for sharing..

I have seen the plugs of Fear Factor. I'm really excited to watch how they did it. As for Survivor, I couldn't care less. I'm a Kapamilya.

i hate tv shows paying for the trademark of another game show.. its like flagellating the show with the permission of the owner. i hate it. they just do it for the rating of their show.. o common? they can do better than these copied shows...

well, as for me I think they just want to prove that the Philippines can also do the same shows like in US.. But of course, not all challenges (maybe) they copied it to the original one.. I think they make their own challenges.. Actually, all shows are after to their ratings, so we can't stop them making such kind of shows but at least they asked permission to the original one and I think the original writer or shows helped them also to improve their shows and make it more good than expected.. Anyway, thanks for sharing..

I vote for fear factor because I love the challenges they give to the participants. Specially the challenge in eating different kinds of exotic foods from all over the world. I like this type of show because I prefer to see different participants in every show. Compared to survivor, the participants are all the same throughout the whole season.

Me too.. I also like to watch the fear factor based on their trailer it is really exciting.. As for survivor phil, I don't like their challenges... I don't feel any excitement about their challenges and it seems that participants are just too relax.. Anyway, thanks for sharing..

definitely survivor. fear factor can be compare to extra challenge we already have enough of the us version theres nothing to watch about the fear factor compare to survivor they can creat lots more eciting challenges. one reason i think that going to make me watch that fear factor is if they are going to eat their own s h i t. and paolo is a great host he is very athletic compared to ryan who is tooo g ay to function for me.

Oh! It seems your in Kapuso.. Well, I respect your views since we all have our likes and dislikes about the show.. But since the fear factor is not yet showing I can't say anything to compare the to show.. I just watch the trailer of Fear factor and based on that I can sense that it is more exciting to watch than the survivor Phil.. I had watched some of the episodes in Survivor Phil. and based on my observations, I don't like their challenges.. It seems too easy and I don't feel any excitement.. Maybe, I'm just expecting more just like the original one.. Anyways, thanks for sharing.. Happy posting..

I really don't watch GMA shows. I am proud to be a Kapamilya. I can only watch GMA's Bubble Gang that is to my opinion the only show that is worth watching in GMA. Though I sometimes see a glimpse of the other shows it really doesn't spark any interest in me to bother to watch them. I have watched the first few seasons of the foreign Survivor and I liked the challenges, how they really put effort in the challenges. It was and still is a well thought of program that is definitely worth watching. I also like the host. Survivor GMA, I just might check out. It really depends on how interesting the participants are. I missed the first episode and don't really know at what time it airs. Now, for Fear Factor. Trailer is good. And I like it that Ryan Agoncillo will be hosting it. Can't wait for it to start.

I agree with you.. Some shows in the GMA are not worthy to watch... I'm also Kapamilya.. Most of the time, I used to watched Kapamilya show because for me it is nice and fun to watch.. Well, of course I sometimes watched shows in GMA but only chosen shows like Bubble Gang, BFV, and some anime series.. For survivor Phil, I don't like their challenges it seems boring and most of their challenges are just too easy.. Lol.. well, that's only observations.. But if ever I'm in their situation I don't know if I can make those challenges.. I guess I am just comparing them to the original one... Me too.. I can't wait to watch the fear factor in ABS.. I hope it will be so soon.. Thanks for sharing..

The two shows are exciting to watch.I'm an avid follower of this two shows.The challenges of this show is different from each other.I do hope that the time slot for this would not be the same.

Well, don't worry! As for now, the fear factor in ABS is still not showing.. But the Survivor Phil in GMA is already staring, maybe 2 weeks ago.. Not so sure.. Hope you are already watching the Survivor Phil.. In my views and observations, I don't like the Survivor Phil since their challenges are not that exciting.. That's only my views but of course you may share yours.. Thanks for sharing! Have fun watching the show..

For me,these 2 new reality shows are worth looking for since both of them will be a version of two of the most popular and watchful shows in the world. I wanted to see how the 2 networks, GMA 7 and ABS-CBN 2, would invest and spend their resources in making these shows as exciting and challenging as the original ones. I have partially watched the opening of the Survivor Philippines and it looks different and full of potential though I think it still fell short compared to the original one (which was expected). About Fear Factor, the trailer looks exciting and appealing particularly showing a lot of skins (bare body)from the contestant. I think the creative writers of these 2 shows will be very busy in making new challenges which were not yet done in the original one.

Yes, I'm so excited to see which of the two networks has a good version of the famous show in the world.. But as for me I don't like the Survivor Philippines because most of their challenge are unchallengeable.. This is only my observations when I watched the show.. Anyway, thanks for sharing ...
