It’s a no-holds barred match as Kit Thompson, Argel Saycon, and Raven Molina try to knockout the competition and win Ivana Alawi in her final challenge for “Paligayahin Niyo Ako” on Online Kapamilya Shows. This do-or-die round called ‘Gigil Mo Ako, Beh’ would have Ivana and the gentlemen asses their chemistry and put the latter’s quick wit, acting skills, and love principles to the test.
Here are the rules: To start, Ivana would bring up a complicated love scenario. Instead of just laying down their strategies to resolve the dilemma, the contenders would have to re-enact the situation with her. This challenge offers a greater winning potential, with a whopping 6 pogi points given to the best contender, 4 points and 2 points to the second and third placers, respectively.
For a quick icebreaker, Ivana quizzed her suitors about their ultimate ‘ligaw’ styles. Raven opted for a macho display and jestingly bragged about his experiences with women steering the courtship. Kit was a little softer this time and honestly went for a “style ko bulok” confession. Argel said the things he does for Ivana in “Paligayahin Niyo Ako” is no different from his real-life strategies in wooing a girl.
Ivana ushered the contenders in for the first round of challenges. The gentlemen would have to confess their feelings for a friend, played by Ivana. Cheesy lines work best in charming a girl over, and Argel would definitely use this trick. Kit was a smooth talker, dropping a few hints before bringing up his true feelings. Confidence is always Raven’s biggest weapon, going straight to the point.
In the second round, the guys showed how they would stop a girl from breaking up with them. The twist- they were allegedly caught cheating. Kit, Raven, and Argel proved that only boys play games but they, real men, would take the competition seriously. Raven had surprisingly ditched the bravado for a mushy begging act. Kit and Ivana’s scene turned into a hilarious LQ (Lovers’ Quarrel). The ever-competitive Argel flaunted a heart tattoo on his chest dedicated to Ivana a la action star. He also had Ivana’s name written on his upper arm and thighs.
The last scenario challenged how would the gentlemen pull off a wedding proposal. Raven’s gimmick was funny and romantic, pretending to tie his shoelace to get on his knees. Kit was expectedly hilarious, and wise and respectful at the same time, saying he asked the blessing of Ivana’s parents beforehand. Argel took Ivana to a wall adorned with sticky notes bearing the words “Will you marry me?”
Time for Ivana’s verdict! The Ang Lihim ni Ligaya leading lady awarded the 2 pogi points to Raven, bringing him a total of 10 points after six challenges. Kit garnered a total of 14 pogi points, placing second in this episode. Finally, Ivana found her match in the person of Argel, this week’s best contender, and with an overall score of 18 pogi points.
Argel finally wins Ivana’s heart after six challenges. As a reward to his effort and actions, he would have the chance to take ‘Ligaya’ on a virtual date, which will happen next week in “Paligayahin Niyo Ako” on OKS.abs-cbn.com.
