The producers of Fear Factor – Philippine edition required their contestants to don Speedos for their publicity photos. I’m not complaining. One of the guys to watch out for is 20-year-old Bernabe “RJ” Calipus, Jr., a dock laborer [billed by the show as a “stevedore”, Spanish estibador, or loosely translated into Filipino as kargador] from Tondo, Manila. The Filipino-French [yes, he claims to have a French dad in the press kit] is already a father of two kids, and his goal in entering the reality show is to be famous and make a name for himself in showbiz. I’m just kidding, I made that one up. Really.
