Holloween Success

October 27, 2007 1:23 AM

PBBCE2_headline1026.jpgIn between the housemates’ weekly tasks are Big Brother’s interweaving daily challenges which we all look forward to since they enable us to catch a more personal glimpse into their varied personalities. Week 2 has been an exciting roller coaster ride for them as they struggled to rise above the emotionally-draining tasks as well as the ones that tested their physical capabilities.

Like a dam that suddenly broke, their heartaches flowed out of them as they learn to open up to each other. They also realize that being a housemate is no mean feat but most of them continue to fight for that right for the sake of their families or to simply prove their self-worth. Homesickness certainly took its toll on them so they grabbed the chance to send their love to their families yesterday after their Magic Carpet Ride.

But no matter how heavy their individual burdens are, nothing beats their moments of triumph after surpassing Big Brother’s valuable lessons. Through them, they discover their strengths and their responsibility to look beyond their own comfort zones. And tonight, they were surged with pride as Big Brother gave his verdict to their Kaishou Taishou presentation!

It featured a story of courtship between two ordinary people who met on a bar. But as the shadow play unfolded, it became evident that they are manananggals after all! The housemates performed this simple but amazing pantomime just recently inside the confession room where all lights were turned off to make it appear that their props are floating between the main characters Ruben and Ethel. All the others were responsible for holding the cardboard stars, hearts, wine glasses and the words that the couple exchanged while the song Can’t Take My Eyes Off You was played.

As it happens, they agreed on a specific criterion which equally comprised originality, coordination, entertainment value and choreography. After keeping them in suspense for a while, Kuya happily announced that they got 82% for all their efforts. And with that, they won their fifty percent bet which brought them a total of P12,000 for their weekly budget!

This joyous news however was linked with Big Brother’s unfortunate announcement that the cost of the glass (P500) and candelabra (P2,500) that Baron and Mariel broke few days ago would be reduced from their winnings! The two immediately felt bad but the others soothed their feelings by saying that they don’t blame for what was an honest mistake and besides, they still received a reasonable sum after all. Still, Kuya’s mole protested on the charged amount for the candleholder. But the master of the big yellow house only remarked that he would give her the receipt if she wanted proof of its price.

Presently though, things are looking well for the cheerful housemates! And despite the forthcoming first eviction night, the nominees are resolute to make the best of their last hours inside the most prestigious abode in the land! Who will become the popular choice of the public to be saved? Is it Megan or 2-in-1 housemates Jen and Marylaine? Don’t miss this episode tomorrow on Primetime Bida!
