Checkered Skaters

November 08, 2007 2:56 AM

PBBCE2_bodypaint1107.jpgOn Saturday, we will be witnessing two main events inside the most prestigious house in the land. One is the Celebrity Concert For A Cause and the other is Gaby dela Merced’s voluntary exit in exchange for the elusive chance to pursue her passion as a professional sports car racing enthusiast. As mentioned last Sunday on PBB Primetime, she is scheduled to fly to Arizona, USA for the upcoming Driver Development Program for International Racing – a seminar which she dare not miss for the world.

Her decision to quit last Monday remained a secret towards her housemates. But tonight, it seemed that Big Brother decided to connive with Mariel, Donni, Ruben, Riza and Will. Whether they were asked to make a sacrifice or a pleasant surprise for the Racing Godess remains to be seen. But for now, what’s made privy to all of us is the special task which they started to accomplish right after they played tug-o-war.

With a touch of irony, they were told to take a bath first before proceeding to the storage room where their costumes lay in waiting for them. There the five selected celebrities covered their bodies with paint, following a unified checkered flag design, which we mostly see in circuits. To complete their outfit, they wore a strapped-tirePBBCE2_gab1107.jpg on their waists. Then they came out of hiding by skating around the house with their brand new roller blades!

Naturally, Gab immediately realized that the task is related to her. She asked if it was a punishment but Mariel said no. Other than that, the five of them were tight-lipped regarding their ‘secret mission’ which is extended till later. In fact, they were instructed to sleep on the living room for tonight with their costumes on! Can you guess the purpose of this mysterious assignment? Be sure to catch the whole story on Pinoy Big Brother Celebrity Edition 2 at Primetime Bida!


Mind Games

PBBCE2_will_news1107.jpgThree weeks is certainly a long time especially when both the showbiz world and the country at large have been bombarded with such shocking events. In that sense, the celebrity housemates have indeed missed so much as they live in seclusion at the big yellow house. As such, just imagine how they felt the minute they absorbed the distressing headlines from Pinoy Big Balita!

A day after they received the fax message regarding the audition for the newscasting stint, Big Brother told them that the time had come for him to select those who possess the voice, poise, and talent to deliver fast-breaking information to the public. To prepare themselves for it, they even ran through some known Tagalog tongue-twisters like “nakakapagpabagabag”.

Still, they couldn’t help faltering over their words once they stood in front ofPBBCE2_newscasters1107.jpg the tele-prompter to read the news. Speaking in straight Filipino was difficult particularly for the ingliseros and ingliseras in the house. Beyond that however, what was equally distressing to them were the reports that they were reading. Of all the headlines, they were thrown back by the Glorietta bombing. Hence, what was supposed to be a fun activity turned out to be quite alarming. Mcoy and Gaby realized that the PBB staff wouldn’t dare joke about such a serious matter.

But that wasn’t the only thing that stressed them out. Other featured headlines were the following "User Housemate", "Brawl between Jen and Marylaine on Boy & Kris" "PBB Celebrity Edition 2, Extended Ng Two Weeks", "Erap's Freedom" and "A Housemate's Special Friend, Spotted Dating A New Girl". They finally heard these straight from Ethel and Ruben, who passed the try-outs. As it is, Big PBBCE2_tinamaan1107.jpgBrother gathered them on the living room to show the finished video. And it was Mariel who got really shaken upon hearing the rumor which was really ‘close to home’.

Is there a ring of truth in this newscasting activity? Will the things they’ve heard continue to haunt them in the coming days? Keep up with all the daily dramas and intrigues inside the famous abode of Kuya on Pinoy Big Brother Celebrity Edition 2 on Primetime Bida. And for the latest exploits of the celebrity housemates, tune in to Uber, weekdays, only at your Kapamilya network, ABS-CBN.


Red Team reigns supreme

PinoyBigBrotherIn the activity area, one player from each team will battle it out in a reverse tug of war. The players must find an item in the box in front of them that serves as an answer to Big Brother's questions. In the game, some of Kuya's questions were "What did Mcoy and Jon had on their mouths when they failed to say 'Oink! Oink!' in one of their tasks?", "What important accessory did Riza lose?", and "What is Megan's favorite dessert?" Riza won over another pretty girl Mariel, Jon defeated his fellow model Will, Donnie won over Mcoy, and Baron prevailed over Victor.

PinoyBigBrotherThe game served as a way for our celebrity housemates to get to know each other more. Be that as it may, the competetive atmosphere prevailed, and the players could not help but to really get physical. Ruben, acting as referee, saw to it that the players followed the rules strictly. In the end, though, the Red Team took home the game with four points over Blue Team's one point. After the stressful game, the winners were called to the confession where Big Brother announced that they will all be able to send a text message to their loved ones.

Be sure to catch Pinoy Big Brother Celebrity Edition 2 tonight right after Lastikman for more of the teasing Cheap Ahoys dance and the relaxing massage the boys gave to the girls. Also, catch another round of Ruben and Ethel's Pinoy Big Balita that shocked all the housemates and brought Mariel to tears.
