The Last Hunter Standing in Kumu’s Diamond Hunt is a Woman

They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend, and fittingly, during International Women’s Month, a woman has emerged victorious among the pool of competitive hunters on Kumu’s adventure reality show, “Diamond Hunt.”

Coming on strong from the get-go and leading “Team Bathala” through highs and lows, Pam Gonzales clinched the “Ultimate Diamond Hunter” title, having bagged the PHP 300,000 worth of Kumu diamonds. 

But to get to the pinnacle after nine grueling episodes was truly a test of courage, strength, and mental fortitude. Battling through treacherous terrain, deciphering cryptic clues, and facing unexpected challenges along the way, the content creator, who once graced the cover of Parcinq Magazine Vol. 3 Q. 1, exemplified resilience and determination. 

“This win is for all the women out there,” she declared after she was called the winner on the ninth episode aired on Wednesday night, March 13. The content creator also dedicates her win to her family who has been supporting her every step of the way. 

Her journey resonates as a testament to the indomitable spirit of women, showcasing their ability to thrive in demanding and competitive environments.

From the first game of physical flag snatching in Masungi Georeserve to the grand finale in Mystery Manila, Pam, alongside her fellow finalists Denden Jr. and Lennard Wesley, ventured into the seemingly enchanting “Diwata Temple.” Here, they engaged in a series of mind-games and tests of agility: “Sassa’s Secret,” “Benedix’s Puzzle,” and “Karlito’s Klue.”

During the challenges, Pam faced a moment of struggle in the first task, searching for the elusive “black bird” and turning to her fellow-hunter Marcus for assistance immediately. Similarly, Denden and Lennard sought help during the “Benedix’s Puzzle,” reaching out to Dom and Tessa respectively.

After the mind-boggling series of games, it was certainly a neck-to-neck fight among the three as their times came remarkably close. Pam secured first place with only 57 seconds ahead of Denden, who came in second with 51 minutes and 22 seconds, followed closely by Lennard at third place with 56 minutes and 19 seconds. 

Taking to Instagram, the winning streamer quipped that while breaking barriers and challenging norms in the competition, “she’s not just a winner, she’s a symbol of empowerment.”

“This win is not just mine, it’s a testament to every woman who dares to dream, rise, and conquer. Let’s celebrate the power within us all,” she added. 

Pam’s victory echoed beyond the confines of the survival show, becoming a beacon of inspiration for women everywhere to pursue their aspirations fearlessly and with unwavering determination. Because, just like Pam, once you commit wholeheartedly, you’re always one step ahead of everyone else.
