Gameplan: Conquering the challenge south of Manila
Gameplan hosts, Amanda, Ton & Juls try to finish what they started

SOUTH OF MANILA, Philippines – There are two paths to take in the middle of a challenge—give up, or keep on going. Given different challenges that require them to learn skills from the ground up, Ton, Juls and Amanda make the choice. Frustrated yet determined, they all chose to keep on going and keep on trying. 

Juls, Ton, and Amanda were getting the hang of motocross riding, wake boarding and paragliding but then the Gameplan producers throw another curve ball at them. Not only do they need to learn the sports, they’re suppose to take an action selfie while doing it.

Ton moves to the Pro Lake to get his selfie. With cables pulling him faster and harder, just getting up on the board was a challenge. But he finds a way to take that selfie.

Amanda’s challenge is to learn the right technique to fly. A few times she almost catches the wind by ground handling her parachute. With the assistance of her coach, she finally manages to get her feet off the ground and experience being airborne on camera.

Juls rides his motorbike around the course at a steady pace. A few failed kick starts on the hard bumps doesn’t stop him. He holds on to his camera pole to capture the moment.

Ton, Amanda and Juls learn that taking on a difficult challenge pays off. It was all about standing up and trying again and again and again. And of course trying to get an awesome selfie while you’re at it.
