in 2008. He defeated Robert Vincent "Rob" Sy, 7-2, with the seventh vote resulting from him winning a popularity vote. Tiuseco's win was already leaked months earlier, however, when a showbiz-oriented website published the alleged results of the Final Tribal Council on October 2008 after two of the show's staff were overheard in a coffee shop about the show's outcome. Paolo Bediones, the host of the show, labeled that website's report as a spoiler when that article first appeared.[5] Post-Survivor Philippines[edit] Tiuseco said that Survivor Philippines
helped him a lot in his life. He learned how to be contented of what he has right now. He also gained confidence to face problems that will come in his life.[6] Because of his good looks, many people were speculating that Tiuseco will enter the world of show business. He said that if there's an opportunity given to him, he'll probably enter show business. He is currently taking up a dance workshop and voice lessons in University of the Philippines.[6] He is currently hosting in the GMA Network
