To be able to take on this challenge, the six girls will have to bring out their inner Princess Jasmine: be tough, resilient and game to rough it out.

Host Janina Vela returns to the I Dare to Dream house transforming the livingroom into a decked out arts and crafts station. The task for the young ladies is to revamp old t-shirts and create something new and exciting.


Like Belle from Beauty and the Beast, the girls will have to look past mere appearances and search for inner beauty. Their creativity will be put to the test as well.

This challenge is not for the faint of heart—or stomach:


There are many ways you can explore new parts of the world all in the comfort of your home. In this challenge, the six girls do exactly just that. It’s time to go on a gastronomical adventure, where the girls’ willingness to try some of the world’s most unconventional delicacies will be put to the test. 


In the spotlight for this challenge is Princess Ariel from The Little Mermaid. And just like Princess Ariel, the finalists will have to be brave, step out of their comfort zones and get ready to explore!


Episode 8: Cinderella


This episode is all about energy, dedication and hard work. This week, the girls let their inner performer take the stage in a special dance class with world-famous hip-hop group, the Philippine All-Stars. But what happens when you’ve got an entire dance routine to memorize with very little time? As tensions in the I Dare to Dream house rise again, the girls find they have more than dance steps to learn.
