Du Brothers, Showbiz Royalties of 'Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition Doubles' admit cheating

Ralph Du and Pat Martinez
Four "Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition Doubles" contestants voluntarily dropped out of the competition after they admitted to have cheated.

In Saturday's episode of the reality show, Christian and Ralph of the team Du Brothers and Patrizha Martinez and Cathy Bautista of team Showbiz Royalties confessed that they brought cigarettes, junk food and slimming tea inside the camp to help them lose extra pounds.

Christian, who was first to volunteer out of the competition, apologized to his co-contestants and said what he did may be a way for him to understand himself better.

"Inaantay ko po 'yung time na magkamali ako para po matutuo. Siguro po ito 'yung way para maindintindihan ko sarili ko. Siguro dahil sa mga nagawa ko, sa mga nasaktan ko, sisiguraduhin ko po na ipapakita ko sa inyo na matututo ako, na ipapasa ko po lahat ng natutunan ko na ito, sa competition na ito… Nagvo-volunteer po ako na i-end na ang journey ko sa 'Biggest Loser'."

For his part, Ralph admitted that he was caught up in the nature of the competition.

"Di ko inakalang aabot ako sa point na magiging ganoon ako. Lalo na po, tinuturo sa amin ng dad namin parati is [ang] intergridad ay 'di mo kailangang bilihin. Basta gawin mo lang ang tama at ipagpatuloy ang tama. Ako rin po nagde-decide na voluntarily i-end ang journey ko [sa 'Biggest Loser']."

Meanwhile, Cathy, who admitted she disappointed even herself, apologized to her co-contestants, her parents and to the people who believed in her.

"Nadi-disappoint ako and I know I've disappointed a lot of people—ang parents ko, ang 'Biggest Loser,' ang coaches, ang contestants, ang lahat na naniwala sa akin, kahit si Ate Pat. Hindi worth it ang ginawa ko. Dapat nagpakatotoo na lang ako sa sarili ko. I can’t even express how sorry I am to you, guys."

Patrizha, for her part, also said sorry to her fellow contestants and said she doesn't want to be defined by her errors but by how she owed up to it and rose again.

"Nu'ng pumasok ako, masaya ako just thinking kahit maka-lose man lang ako 20 pounds, okay na ako. Kasi gusto ko lang naman magsayaw uli e. Gusto ko rin maging proud ang papa ko. I don’t want this to define me, kasi hindi ito ang totoong ako. Gusto kong maalala ako ng mga tao na siya 'yung nagkamali pero buong loob niyang hinarap at taas-noo siyang bumangon."

Even before the program looked into the case, the other contestants apparently already had a hunch about the Du Brothers and Showbiz Royalties' deceitful practices, but chose to remain mum for the sake of camaraderie, as well as lack of evidence against the four contestants.

Siblings Ikya and Brian admitted they were offended and hurt by what Christian, Ralph, Cathy and Pat did, but said they will still be their friends outside the competition.

Meanwhile, "Biggest Loser" coaches Toni and Jim Saret expressed regret after the confession of the two teams.

Coach Toni admitted that Christian and Ralph were the strongest contenders in the competition.

"As your coaches medyo masakit kasi nagsi sink-in pa lang lahat na napasaktit. Ang lapit-lapit niyo na. You were the strongest contenders, boys… Masakit lang talaga e. The real world, ;yung totoong mundo, nandoon sa labas. This is gonna be a part of your biggest transformation."

Coach Jim reminded team Du Brothers and team Showbiz Royalties to use what they learned from the mistakes they made in the "Biggest Loser" to make them better people in the real world.

"We look at you as families, mga anak gusto namin kayo maging successful… Kahit na medyo sad na dalawa kayo aalis, sa gantiong pamamaraan, we got high hopes e. I still love all of you. Don't let this moment define you. Let this moment make you stronger. Let it make you become better people."

With the Du Brothers and Showbiz Roylaties out, a batch of contestants are set to make a return to the "Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition Doubles."
