CEBU, Philippines - The 13 official housemates of “Pinoy Big Brother Unlimited” were finally revealed last October 29, but the biggest shock was the new look of the Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) house.
Completely different from previous seasons, the housemates entered a PBB house reminiscent of slum settlements. According to Kuya, they will have to live like the 15 million Filipinos living in shanties and in very poor conditions.
There is Jaz Manabat, the Sensual Siren of QC, a mesmerizing model who has a boyfriend of five years, and Slater Young, the Hotshot Engineer of Cebu, a privileged civil engineer who works for his father and hopes to become mature inside the PBB house.
The Captain’s Daughter of QC, Tin Patrimonio, the home-schooled daughter of basketball superstar Alvin Patrimonio, has yet to learn how to mingle well with other people. There is the Bay Diskarte of Ormoc, Kigoy Abarico, who ran away from his family and lived most of his life on the streets, and the Sales Lakay of Pangasinan, Roy Gamboa, a direct seller who struggled to provide a comfortable for his family.
Joining them are Luz McMclinton, the Mom of Steel of Muntinlupa, the struggling but wacky Pamu Pamorada, the Kitikiti Kid of Batangas, fisherman Joseph, the Promdihirang Tisoy of Marinduque, and tattoo artist Divine Maitland-Smith, the Darling Dude of Cebu and Kuya’s first openly lesbian housemate.
The Stunning Sweetheart of Olongapo, Kim De Guzman, hopes to find and get to know his biological father, while the Hopeless Romantic of Gensan, Paco Evangelista, wants to start anew after living through his life’s hardest challenges.
Meanwhile, Seichang Ushimi, the Pinoy Anime of Japan and Kevin Fowler, the Dreamboy of California, both born and raised in other countries, would like to reconnect with their Filipino roots by joining the reality show.
Aside from the 13 official housemates, 30 “reserved” housemates were also presented in which Carlo Romero, a retail sales consultant from Chicago, was given the chance to enter the house when his number was drawn in a lottery.
Carlo will have to accomplish four tasks this week so he can stay in the house and be an official housemate.
Meanwhile, this season’s guaranteed unlimited experience was set off when Paco, Slater, and Luz were asked to go inside the confession room and choose which basic necessity they would want to have an unlimited supply of, but with corresponding consequences: Water, food, or clothes.
