HATERS AND SUPPORTERS. Sa mga nakapanood nga kay Mara sa kanyang pakikipaglaban sa isla, nagkaroon siya ng mga haters dahil nga sa paraan ng kanyang pakikipaglaro at pakikitungo sa kapwa niya castaways.
Aware nga si Mara na may mga galit sa kanya, lalo nga raw sa Twitter na kung anu-ano ang tawag sa kanya.
Pero natutuwa siya dahil meron din siyang mga supporters. Sila na lang daw ang kanyang nagiging inspirasyon para pagbutihin pa ang kanyang pakikipaglaban sa isla.
