Weekly Shows[edit]

The weekly shows began on February 11, 2006 and are held at the Centro de Bellas Artes of Caguas. Each presentation opens with a huge dance/sing number where all the contestants participate.

Before each presentation, contestants are interviewed by host Yuri, while they present some of the things that happened the preceding week. After the contestants presentation, the three judges evaluate his performance. Guest judges might be brought from time to time.

Threatenings and Eliminations[edit]

Each week, based on the contestants performances, the judges threaten a maximum of three contestants to abandon the competition. In the first weeks, the professors "save" one of them based on their week's performance during rehearses. The remaining threatened contestants are then subject to the evaluation of the public during the next week, where the audience has the right to vote for who they want to stay or leave. The results are announced in the next show.

Controversies[edit]

Some controversies that surfaced during the season.

  • On April 1, 2006 it was announced that competitor Ediberto Carmenatty had to leave the competition due to medical reasons. The reasons were loosely disclosed, but apparently Carmenatty was suffering from some sort of injury on his back and leg. This was particularly shocking to everybody because Carmenatty was both one of the strongest competitors of the show and one of the most loved by both his fellow competitors and the audience.
  • Without a doubt, the biggest controversy so far is the elimination of strong competitor Soledad Sosa from the competition. On March 19, 2006, she decided to quit the competition and abandoned the house with her husband returning to Houston, Texas. Her parents have complained because they've never gotten along with him and have accused him of manipulating Sosa's decision. The production of the show has also inferred that there might be some legal repercussions to her decision because of the contract each contestant signed. Sosa was one of the best singers of the group, receiving always high evaluations from the judges and not being threatened in any of the shows.
  • The attitude of some of the contestants has also rose some controversy. More notable were the issues surrounding Sunel Molina during the first weeks, where he argued with lots of his fellow competitors and teachers for several reasons. Other contestants that have had problems because of their attitude have been Ronald Martínez and Francisco Salicrup.
  • During the third or fourth week of the show, some of the male competitors were reprimanded by Lunna (the administrator of the house/studio) for not waking up early for rehearsals and classes. Some of the competitors reprimanded for this were Marlon Fernández, Edwin Gómez, Arquimides González and José Barraza.
  • During the fourth week, it was also brought to attention the poor conditions in which most of the contestants had their rooms. This was shown in the weekly show because Francisco Salicrup complained about the hygiene of his friends.
  • Some contestants, namely Josué Muñoz and Helen Ochoa, argued the judge's decisions to threaten them repeatedly in the early shows of the competition even implying that there might be favoritism to other contestants. Josué was eliminated on March 18, 2006.

After the Show[edit]

  • Season winner Marlon Fernández released his first album titled Mi Sueño in 2006. The album features several songs written by Olga Tañon and a duet with La India. In 2008, he released his second album titled Homenaje a Juan Luis Guerra. He has been nominated to several Billboard Latin Music Awards as well as some Lo Nuestro Awards.
  • Third finalist Arquímides González released his first album titled Mil Violines in early 2007.
  • Fourth finalist Mary Ann Acevedo was the first contestant to release an album. Her self-titled album was released in mid-2006.
  • Jenilca Giusti is about to release her first album and the first single is already on radio.
  • Helen Ochoa released a project titled Dos Destinos in early 2007. This project was originally intended to be a dual project with fellow contestant Melanie Figueroa, but the latter dropped from it for health reasons.
  • Gustavo Gutiérrez, boyfriend of fellow competitor Jenilca Giusti, is taking acting courses and has already received several offers in Miami and Venezuela.
  • Ediberto Carmenatty, Arquímides González, and Mary Ann Acevedo in company of some of the other contestants of Objetivo Fama's 5th Season are now part of a group called "Los Favoritos" and after having a successful show in CBA are having a concert on the Roberto Clemente Coliseum.
