Josué Villanueva is a parkour athlete. So, you might think transversing the Law of the Jungle world was easier for him. But the show wasn’t just about completing challenges. Participants had to survive many purges and betrayals from their teammates as well — which Josué was more than prepared for.
This Josué Villanueva Bio contains everything you need to know about this victor.
Josué Villanueva On Netflix’s Law of the Jungle
Netflix’s brand new show, Law of the Jungle dropped on March 15, 2023, and it saw two teams of competitors dumped in a remote Colombian jungle where they faced off the other for a shot at two million pesos.
Our star, Josué started as a part of the Blue Team which included his teammates César Morales, John Guts, Layla Neri, Leslie Gallardo, and Sandy Padilla. Quickly, he then emerged as one of the strongest players on his team and was sent to the season’s very first Purge alongside John and Sandy.
Fortunately, he survived the purge and came back to the team to lead them to victory in the second challenge. So, five rounds into the game, he and Leslie were the only remaining members of their camp, forced to join the orange team for the rest of the season.
Thereafter, he limited his interactions with his once-opponents — which was acknowledged by many so much so that they wanted to see him in the finals and were willing to risk their own elimination for the same.
Thus, for the sixth purge, his teammates assured him that he won’t be picked. But even if they did, Josué let everyone know that he had already secured his safe passage by agreeing to sabotage the task before for immunity from being sent to the elimination round.
However, after Josué and the remaining cast members decided to play as a team of five for the final challenge and won, it was revealed that Josué had never agreed to accept sabotage for money. This meant, he was able to take home 247 thousand pesos.
On the other hand, Gina, Adrián, and Leslie took 247,000, 327,000, and 297,000 pesos respectively.

According to Josué, he first discovered parkour through some friends and by searching the internet.
