Last year, one of our very own talents, Vanessa Cruez made everyone proud by being the sole Malaysian rep for a surviving reality show.
In this regard, the talented Malaysian actress, Vanessa Cruez who made a surprising wild card entry to the reality show, has been recognised by the Malaysian Book of Records for being the first to participate in the ‘Survivor Tamil Reality Show’.
Hosted by Action King Arjun, this reality-cum-drama show, which was airing for the first time in South Indian television history, saw these exceptional celebrity competitors enduring months in the gorgeous Zanzibar islands of the African coast, surviving against the forces of nature for 91 days.
Despite being a wild card contestant, she persisted in battling her best in every game, which enabled her to clinch the second runner-up spot. Actress Vijayaletchumy was crowned as the title winner in the grand finale while actor Saran became the first runner-up.
