Richard Gutierrez physically and emotionally prepared for new season of Survivor Philippines

RICHARD GUTIERREZ left for the yet undisclosed destination of “Survivor Philippines Celebrity Showdown 2” last Sunday. Before he left, he underwent rigid physical check up to make sure he’s in tiptop shape in hosting the show for 45 days. He also had the proper vaccines to protect him from possible diseases abroad. He won’t reveal where his destination is and who the castaways are. “Basta we have an exciting line up at mas marami sila ngayon,” he says. “Nauna na doon si Direk Rico Gutierrez (who replaced original director Monti Parungao who moved to TV5) to try out the challenges na ipagagawa sa castaways. Mas maraming twists and surprises din ngayon so I’m really energized. I feel I’m now more physically and emotionally prepared kasi may experience na ako doon sa una so I know what to expect. I brought all my exercise equipment as I’m preparing for the Ironman triathlon that I plan to join next year and also have my own triathlon fundraising event for my birthday in January. I’ve done boxing, basketball and martial arts, triathlon is the new challenge for me.”
