Mt. Tangisan


For the JUNE Adventure of The BACKPACKERS, we journeyed to the mountainous part of Central Luzon: San Jose, Tarlac. This place is no stranger to The BACKPACKERS as we explored the same location during our August 2011 Mt. Bungkol Baka climb. This time, our eyes were set on the nearby Mt. Tangisan.

EPISODE 7: Who to Trust


MERGED TRIBE



OFFICIAL SURVIVOR ZAMBALES INTRO:




WHAT HAPPENED AT TRIBAL?


After blindsiding BACKPACKER Ralph at tribal council, the group headed back to camp. A flustered York was approached by Mon. "What happened?," asked Mon. "I voted for Aaron just like what we planned. Who did you vote for?," asked York to which Mon responded that he also voted for Aaron. In reality, Mon joined forces with Nick and Kenji to throw away Ralph's possibility of controlling the game and the votes of The BACKPACKERS. Nick, Mon and Kenji were successful in overthrowing their co-BACKPACKER Ralph with the help of Kaye's and Aaron's votes.

MERGED TRIBE








MERGE!!!
  
BP Ralph
The BACKPACKERS Ralph, Mon and York walked away from the last tribal council where Mina and Jane were eliminated. They were in possession of nine Black Buffs which signifies the start of the individual phase of SURVIVOR ZAMBALES. "Two tribes no more, it is now time for us to battle it out with one another. I am just so happy that I made it in the merge. Next goal: Final Four!" Ralph excitedly stated. His Final Four was him, Mon, York and Jane but because Jane was voted out in a surprising double elimination, he was forced to redo his strategy. "Jane, who is our supposed fourth person was sadly eliminated. But going to this merge, we have six BACKPACKERS from the original Tapulao and only three Guests. So the right strategy here is to go back to the original tribal lines. And I trust Ghei, Kenji and Nick that them and us three (York, Mon, Ralph) will be the final six," added Ralph.

THE POST BLINDSIDE OF THE THREE AMIGOS
The BACKPACKERS Ralph, Mon and York perfected the art of the blindside last tribal council when they voted out Rommel instead of Mina. "Jane and Rommel did not see it coming last tribal council. But we had to do what's needed in order to solidify the alliance with Jane. We do not want her to have more options," explained York. "Our first blindside," Ralph remarked while walking out of the tribal council area.

ROMMEL RUINED TAPULAO'S GAMEPLAN
    
After the dreaded double tribal council where Isabel and Angel were voted out, Tapulao Tribe was still stunned about the twist. "Last tribal council, we all agreed to vote out Kenji. But when Rommel from the other tribe gave him immunity, we realized we did not have Plan B," Ralph narrated.

GOODBYE RED


After a sad tribal council for Pundakit Tribe where Red was voted out, the morale was low at camp. "We are very sad going back to camp. I am personally saddened because it felt too early for Red to be voted out. I know that she can help the team grab victory especially when challenges will involve puzzles and mind games. But at the same time, I know the feeling, she was uncomfortable," lamented Isabel after getting back to camp.

SURVIVOR ZAMBALES Power Rankings Round One!



June is the start of Survivor Month for The BACKPACKERS!
Every week, BPs Marion and Heinz will give their insights about the game in this Survivor Zambales edition of Power Rankings. They will be joined by an anonymous ranker in the form of Matapang, the Lion. Every week they will analyze which castaway is in Power position and most likely win the game down to the castaway who they think will be in danger of getting voted out!
