Just recently, ABS-CBN Lifestyle challenged the ever-fit and talented Alex Diaz to three exciting races at Pretty Huge Obstacles in SM Aura Premier for an episode of Mancrush Mondate Extra. The multi-hyphenate hottie—who is set to direct an upcoming music festival called Cinco de Mayhem—had to compete with the site’s editor-in-chief Barry Viloria and associate managing editor Angela Sy in two races. One, a race in easy and intermediate levels at the obstacle course; and secondly, a race among top food delivery apps namely GrabFood, Honest Bee, and Food Panda.
The challenge started with a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors where Angela got the chance to pick GrabFood as her delivery service, while Barry opted for Honest Bee as Alex chose the Food Panda app. Each player picked a restaurant and ordered the same treats to determine the winner. The food delivery race went on as they got their hearts pumping at two obstacle course races that undoubtedly tested their physical strength and agility.
While it took 23 seconds for Barry and Angela with 43 seconds to finish the easy level, Alex was able to complete it in 14 seconds. The intermediate race, however, took them a bit longer than they expected. Angela posted a record time of one minute and 57 seconds while Barry and Alex completed the level in less than a minute. The actor finished it 18 seconds ahead, making him the winner in both races.
When asked about his favorite part of the obstacle course as they waited for their food to arrive, Alex quickly pointed out rope climbing. “It’s nice being up so high. It’s fun, right?” he said, adding tips on how to ace one’s next obstacle. “Practice, practice, practice. It’s do or die, basically.”
The challenge was concluded with Angela catching up on the race in food delivery as GrabFood arrived at the venue in 27 minutes and 45 seconds ahead of Alex and Barry, whose munchiescame in at 36 minutes and 52 seconds with Food Panda, and 47 minutes in Honest Bee, respectively.
