However, Josué Villanueva not only achieved this impressive feat but also gained many fans due to his stunning performance.

Josué Villanueva’s The Law of the Jungle Journey
After entering the Netflix competition series, Josué was assigned to be a part of the Blue Team. His teammates included César Morales, John Guts, Layla Neri, Leslie Gallardo, and Sandy Padilla. Shortly after entering the show, he quickly emerged as one of the strongest players on his team. This meant that he was sent to the season’s very first Purge alongside John and Sandy. However, he was able to ensure his continuation in the show.
Thanks to Josué’s contribution, the Blue Team was able to win the second challenge, though they ended up losing the third round. After five rounds of games, he and Leslie were the only remaining members of their camp and had to join the orange team for the rest of the season. Despite his minimal interactions with his once-opponents, Jo quickly made a place for himself within the new group. In fact, the participant’s game style and bond with others even led some of the other contestants to claim that they wanted to see him in the finals and were willing to risk their own elimination for the same.
While Josué’s teammates assured him that he would not be sent to the sixth purge, he had already secured his safe passage by agreeing to sabotage the task before for immunity from being sent to the elimination round. Josué and the remaining cast members decided to play as a team of five for the final challenge. After the finalists won the competition, it was revealed that Josué had never agreed to accept sabotage for money. This meant that he was able to take home 247 thousand pesos.
