Gamitin ang sariling wika para hindi maintindihan ng mga kalaban haha.

 Pumili ng limang kalahok at siguraduhing mga bansang mahihina sa botohan ang isama sa top 5 para hindi makadagdag sa mga bansang mahilig bumoto.

(Hindi naman sigurong suportahan ang sariling satin, bahala na kayong magdecide hehe)
