Richard, nasasarapan sa pagsisid
SA sobrang pagka-active at sports-minded ni Richard Gutierrez ay biniro siya ng press na baka wala na siyang natitirang ‘lakas’ para gawin ang ibang mga bagay.
Bukod sa alternate taping (one week each) ng kanyang bagong tele*seryeng Makapiling Kang Muli at bagong weekly show niyang Pinoy Adventures, ongoing ang triathlon training ni Richard para sa sasalihan niyang Ironman event sa Cebu sa Agosto.
Kinontra niya ‘yung comment na tila pinaparusahan niya ang sarili niya dahil para sa kanya ay meron daw two kinds of pain --‘yung pain na gusto mo at ‘yung pain na ayaw mo.
Siyempre ay gusto niya ‘yung klase ng pain na nakukuha niya sa sports dahil temporary lang daw ang physical pain.
Ang ayaw niyang klase ng pain ay ‘yung emotional pain.
Aniya, natural lang na nakaranas na siya ng ganu’ng uri ng sakit dahil tao lang siya, hindi robot.
May mga nagsasabing nawawala ang ‘libido’ kapag masyadong lulong sa extreme sports na ka*tulad ng triathlon.
Totoo ba ‘yon?
“Ah, hindi! Ha! Ha! Ha! Ha!” mabilis na kontra ni Chard.
Pero nakakaubos talaga ng energy ‘yung ganu’ng sports, ‘di ba?
“Hindi, konting rest lang ang kailangan, tapos okey na ulit,” nakangi*ting sey ng Kapuso hunk, na obviously ay mara*ming stored energy sa kanyang katawan.
Para kay Chard ay magkasing-exciting lang ang kanyang outdoor adventures at ang personal niyang adventures pagdating sa pag-ibig.
Aniya, wala siyang takot sa pag-ibig dahil tulad sa kanyang physical adventures ay palagi rin siyang nag-iingat sa aspetong ‘yon.
Mahilig sumisid si Chard at nasasarapan siya kapag nagda-dive lalo na sa tuwing nakikita niya ang napakagandang marine life sa ilalim ng karagatan.
Isa ‘yon sa mga itatampok niya sa Pinoy Adventures kaya sobrang excited siya sa show.
Hilig niya ang adventure, enjoy siya sa traveling and meeting new people, tapos ay maipapakita pa niya kung gaano kaganda ang bansa natin na dapat nating alagaan.
Bago sumabak sa aksyon ay sinisiguro muna ni Chard na safe ang mga gagawin niya at pinag-aaralan niya muna ang mga ito.
Hindi niya gagawin kung hindi siya 100% sure na safe, kagaya ng 30 feet cliff dive niya sa isang ilog sa Sibu*yan Island, Romblon at ‘yung pagra-rappelling niya sa isang waterfalls sa Linapakan, Palawan.
Medyo nalokah lang ang madir ni Chard na si Tita Annabelle Rama dahil sa isang deep sea dive na ginawa ng aktor ay inabot daw ito nang dalawang oras sa ilalim ng dagat sa kakahanap sa isang shipwreck habang matindi ang ocean current.
Pag-ahon ng binata ay mahilu-hilo raw ito nang tumawag sa mommy niya kaya nag-worry si Tita Annabelle.
Mamayang 8:00 PM ang pilot episode ng Pinoy Adventures na mapapanood every Sunday, pagkatapos ng iBilib sa Sunday Grande ng GMA.
Richard Gutierrez on his new GMA News & Public Affairs show, Pinoy Adventures, premiering tonight: ‘It’s more of fun and adventure. The show got conceptualized so that I’ll be able to tour the whole country, showcasing its beauty in a way that’s not typical.’
Richard, the adventurer

Manila, Philippines - Richard Gutierrez will be trudging off the beaten track in search for exciting and exotic adventures across the archipelago in his new show for GMA News and Public Affairs, titled Pinoy Adventures, premiering tonight at 8:30.
After hosting several editions of Survivor Philippines and award-winning environmental docus, the latest of which was the climate change-themed Oras Na, Richard said that his latest TV project will be lighter fare.
Richard told The STAR, “Pinoy Adventures is more of fun and adventure. Parang nakita din kasi ng News and Public Affairs yung passion ko for adventure, for the environment and for exploring new places, so the show was conceptualized in such a way that I’ll be able to tour the whole country, showcasing its beauty in a way that’s not typical.”
The actor, who is juggling his Pinoy Adventures with his teleserye tapings and triathlon trainings, has so far gone with his crew to Sibuyan Island in Romblon and Linapacan in Palawan. These places are still off the mass tourism radar but are teeming with great potential, according to the actor.
“So the higher purpose of the show is really to help the local governments promote their areas so people can reach their places and at the same time, to educate the travelers by promoting tourism in a right way — in a sustainable way. It has an environmental inclination but more of travel,” explained Richard.
Setting foot on these places is no joke. “You really have to be a trouper! We rode the banca and crossed an open sea. You will see that in the first two episodes. The waves were huge! But I was telling our producer that with the waves I had experienced in Survivor, wherein they were as big as houses that we couldn’t see the boat next to us, I think I can handle any travel.”
Having traveled here, there and everywhere thanks to his team-up with the network’s News and Public Affairs, Richard was asked for his recommendations as to what can be done to make traveling within the country more fun.
“There are certain limiting factors in tourism, that’s what I’ve observed. First, the infrastructure, then the accessibility like, for example, Sibuyan Island, I wanna go there, I’m a tourist. The place is okay if you’re a backpacker or an adventurer, but can you reach the place as a (regular tourist)? And can the place handle mass tourism?
“I mean, a place should also be ready in terms of infrastructure, then the locals have to be tourist-friendly, then the waste management should also be okay. So there are a lot of factors, but I guess No. 1 is infrastructure and government support, of course.”
[hightlight]As one of showbiz’s “most eligible bachelors,” Richard was also asked if one quality he looks for in a girlfriend is an equally healthy appetite for travel.[/highlight](He admitted he’s seeing someone non-showbiz who, according to reports, is a model-jewelry designer.)
“Of course, I also like someone who is outgoing and adventurous... It would be nice to have a companion na syempre hilig din yung hilig ko na mag-travel, hindi maarte at pwede mong dalhin sa mga lugar na hindi masyadong napupuntahan ng mga tao,” said Richard, who has pulled off some “daredevil” acts (yes, no body double as in action-film parlance) in the programs he did for News and Public Affairs like deep diving of more than 100-ft. and jumping into a river from a 30-ft. high cliff (with safety precautions, of course!).
“So far, my adventures in Pinoy Adventures are high-adrenalin. Of course, you get a little nervous doing these things but there’s more excitement. For me, it’s a blessing to have gone to places that not everybody has seen and experienced. I consider myself very lucky,” he said.
Meanwhile, we asked Richard his top five adventure-laden destinations that he would like to relive and return to.
Sibuyan Island, Romblon — “Right now, it’s on top of my list. I wanna go back to Romblon. It’s because the whole island is a protected area, and it has more than a thousand waterfalls. Then the lifestyle of the people is simple. You can really feel how contented they are that even if their area is not metropolitan, they’re happy.”
Sagada — “I first went there five years ago. I went backpacking with my brothers. We hope to return and explore more of the Benguet area.”
Palawan — “There are still many undiscovered islands to visit in Palawan. In Linapacan, the beach is just so beautiful! If you want to go for a swim, the beach is just a short walk away. The corals are amazing. They are well-preserved. There are areas already damaged by dynamite and cyanide fishing, but where we went to, sa beach entry palang, grabe na yung marine life. So even if you’ll just go snorkeling, you can already see all the corals, very alive and very beautiful. Talagang as far as your eyes can see, it’s all corals.”
Pandan, Antique — “It’s the home of the cleanest river in the country, the Bugang River (it’s said to be cleaner than potable water). I first went there when we did Oras Na.”
Bohol — “I’ve been to Bohol several times already, but I haven’t explored the entire province. In Baclayon, we did a Bikes for the World project there, wherein we gave 600 bicycles to children who were living more than four kilometers away from their school.
“Everytime I go to Bohol, I always stay there for three days. There was this one time when I saw hundreds of dolphins. Bohol really offers dolphin-spotting but it’s not a regular thing; you have to be at sea and wait as early as 5 a.m.
“But one time, my brother Elvis and I were supposed to go snorkeling — it was 10 a.m. — when a boatman said that there was a sighting of dolphins. So we went to the area where they were spotted, and true enough, we saw two groups of dolphins — bottlenose and spinner dolphins. The locals told us that it was a rare happening. I was just so amazed.”

Richard, happy sa dyowang si Girlie Benitez!
Pinatunayan ni Richard Gutierrez na meron siyang lovelife.
Sa premiere night ng The Mommy Returns kung saan bida ang kanyang Ate Ruffa Gutierrez, may kasama siyang magandang babae at bulung-bulungan nga na ito ang bagong girlfriend niya.
Ang naturang girl ay ang model at jeweler na si Girlie Benitez. Matagal na rin daw silang nagdi-date ni Richard at kalat na nga sa maraming internet sites ang mga photos nila.
Pero hindi nga nagpa-interview si Richard tungkol sa model-girlfriend niya. Nakiusap siya na huwag na lang dahil hindi naman taga-showbiz ang dine-date niya ngayon. Sinama lang daw niya dahil sa pag-imbita ng kanyang Ate Ruffa.
Basta ang masasabi lang niya ay masaya siya at inspired dahil may nagpapalakas sa kanya tuwing may bago siyang trabaho tulad ng kanyang show sa GMA News and Public Affairs na Pinoy Adventures.
Bukod sa Pinoy Adventures na magsisimula na ngayong gabi, puspusan din ang taping ni Richard sa primetime drama series na Makapiling Kang Muli na malapit na ring umere sa GMA-7. (RUEL MENDOZA)
Hindi nagtagumpay si Richard Gutierrez na huwag pag-usapan ang inamin niyang lovelife sa presscon ng Pinoy Adventures sa GMA 7.
Natanong kasi si Richard kung paano niya binibigyan ng assurance ang kanyang mga mahal sa buhay lalo na ang kanyang girlfriend na magiging safe siya sa lahat ng mga activities na gagawin niya sa kanyang physically-tiring show.
Dapat sana ay iiwas si Richard pagdating sa kanyang lovelife, at pamilya na lang daw ang pag-usapan, pero sinagot niyang alam naman daw ng girlfriend niya ang lahat ng mga ginagawa niya.
Wala raw dapat ipag-alala ang kanyang kasintahan at ang family niya dahil pinakikiramdaman daw niya ang sarili kung kaya ba niya ang activity na gagawin niya o hindi.
Anyway, sa pagpaliwanag ni Richard tungkol sa kasintahan niya, bigla nitong naisip na dapat pala ay private ang kanyang lovelife. Nagbiro tuloy itong hindi niya napangatawanang maging private ang lovelife niya dahil napag-usapan na ito sa interview namin sa kanya.
Tungkol naman sa kinahaharap na libel case ng kanyang ate na si Ruffa Gutierrez sa veteran actress na si Amalia Fuentes, hindi nagbigay ng mainit na komento si Richard tungkol dito.
Naniniwala siyang kaya ng kanyang kapatid na hawakan ang isyung kinasasangkutan nito.
Ngayong Mother’s Day, walang material na regalo si Richard para sa Mommy Annabelle niya dahil halos lahat na raw meron ito, gaya ng sangkaterbang mamahaling bags. (REY PUMALOY)
