Kuya's girls face the outside world

November 14, 2007 1:19 PM

05-1114gabypresscon.jpgFresh from her exit from the Kuya's house, Gaby Dela Merced was the most talked about ex-housemate during the press conference. The Racing Goddess made a heartbreaking voluntary exit so she could attend the Driver Development Seminar for International Racing in Arizona, USA this coming November 16th to 18th. Gaby revealed that the seminar came up unexpectedly, but since she knew that such an opportunity is very rare, being a product of competitions and applications, she could not let it pass. She confessed to the reporters her deep passion for racing and even shared a crash-course lesson on the sport. Gaby said that being a race car driver is not actually as glamorous and profitable as it appears, having to find contacts and supporters to help her fund her dreams. But having been exposed to risks and hardships on the race track, Gaby managed to survive all of Big Brother's task, may it be on her own or with the group. This is why Gaby considered her month-long stay in the famous yellow house as a "life-changing" experience.

05-1114zarapresscon.jpgSpeaking of change, another ex-celebrity housemate who is ready to take the big leap is Zara Aldana. The former Mutya Ng Pilipinas and second-evictee, apparently, left her cry-baby reputation in the house and faced the press with a big smile. Zara even bravely clarified misconceptions surrounding her relinquishment of her pageant tiara. But her stay in the Big Brother house, no matter how short, made Zara a different person. Her being soft-spoken and timid may have been the reason for her eviction, but Zara said that she had learned a lot from her celebrity housemates which made her a different and better person today. Now, Zara is ready to put all the controversy and bitterness behind her to face all the new opportunities that PBB has for her. From walking on stage and waving at people, Zara looks forward to trying her hand in acting, singing and hosting. Let's just all hope that things will turn out the best for Zara.

05-1114jenpresscon.jpgBut how have things turned out between 2-in-1 ex-celebrity housemates Jen Da Silva and Marylaine Viernes? From the moment of her nomination and the time she learned that she was a 2-in-1 with Marylaine, Jen had never stopped voicing out her anger and frustration over the 26K girl. With her feisty attitude, Jen was tagged by many as a bad girl. But she revealed that she is not bad as many would think. "Hindi ako pasaway! Ganito lang talaga ako!" as Jen explained herself. She also defended her decision of keeping a grudge against Marylaine during the first week of their stay. For quite some time, Jen blamed Marylaine for their nomination and that if it weren't for Marylaine, Jen would have stayed much longer in the house to spend more happy bonding moments with her the other HMs like Ethel and Mariel. But now, Jen has realized that Marylaine was not responsible for them becoming a 2-in-1 housemates and had already accepted their fate as the first evictee of the season. Jen also admitted that she had just recently made the first move to make peace with Marylaine.

05-1114marylainepresscon.jpgMeanwhile, Marylaine kept an optimistic outlook as she faced the local press. The De La Salle graduate and Palanca Award winning beauty admitted that although she and Jen may not be the best of friends right now, she is happy that there's no more animosity between them. Marylaine now looks forward to whatever opportunities that will come her way. From time to time, the Brainy Babe would miss her fun times with Charmel and the other 26K girls on Kapamilya: Deal of No Deal. However, Marylaine remains confident that having the "ex-celebrity housemate" title on her resume, she could venture into more projects in showbiz apart from opening the Banker's briefcases. As of the moment, given her achievements at such a young age, Marylaine has received several invitations to speak in some seminars and events meant to inspire the youth of today.

Will Chooses Riza Over Ethel

November 13, 2007 11:28 PM

PBBCE2_serve1113.jpgThe HOH game was held last Sunday night where the housemates fought for the title in what was dubbed as “Kapit Na”. They simply have to hold on to their individual punching bags and the last to lose his grip would win. After fifteen minutes, Will was finally hailed as the HOH. It was the Desirable Diva whom he chose as his partner for the special privileges that he would get this week.

As soon as she heard about it, Ethel immediately showed her hilarious dismay for not being picked by Will. The latter tried to console her but the Ultimate Pasaway merely threatened to pack her things again and leave the house! To Big Brother, she revealed that she really thought that Will would choose her since it was she who cheered him on during the game.

She was in for a big surprise though when Big Brother added fuel to her playful jealousy by asking her to interrupt the hottest PBB couple on their dinner date for two! Seeing the romantic set-up sent her into a pretend-rage as she cried accusingly to the gorgeous model, “Bakit hindi ako ang pinili mo?” But the two merely laughed at her funny antics.

Ethel then shared the whole thing to the other housemates who are already used to her teasing quips towards thePBBCE2_garland1113.jpg True Lover. Her act went on until the Will and Riza joined them again. To stop her complaints, Will pomised to give her a massage or whatever it is that she wants. And the Desirable Diva was sport enough to know that Ethel was just fooling around.

That same night however, Big Brother announced that it’s pay back time for the recent violators. However, the corresponding punishment will be given on different instances. Baron already started to carry his bench last night. Who will soon suffer the consequences of their actions in the coming days? Keep it here for the latest happenings on Pinoy Big Brother Celebrity Edition 2.

Payback time!

November 14, 2007 12:58 AM

PBBCE2_stirrer1113.jpgMany times now Big Brother had reminded his residents regarding pay back time for their respective violations. But he was determined to keep everyone in suspense as he reveals their punishment one by one. As mentioned before, Baron started to carry a bench last night that will hopefully teach him not to oversleep again. He even requested for a wider one to keep from falling off it when he’s deep in slumber.

Tonight, the next on the list were Mcoy and Victor. As it is, they forgot to use a stirrer when they fixed their drinks last Sunday. You will recall that the Lonely Dreamboy even hid his glass under the table to muffle the sound. But of course, he didn’t escape Big Brother’s eye for justice. As such, they have to wear matching attires which mirrored the striped design of a stirrer. And whenever ‘IyugyogMo’ is played, they are forced to shake their booties together with the music!

Then another violator was punished after some time. It was like seeing G.I. Jane in the flesh when Riza suddenly came out of the storage room wearing a sexy military outfit! And her responsibility is to make sure that Baron’sPBBCE2_guard1113.jpg bangko is latched on his back at all times. She even had a rifle to go with her costume! The others tried to pry out of her the reason of her ordeal but she remained mum about it, thinking perhaps that she can’t afford another penalty at the moment.

More than these punishments however, the nominees for this week are facing a greater danger. Be sure to place your bets on the safe spot. Simply key in BB 2 for Megan, BB 4 for Ruben and BB13 for Ethel then send it to 2331 for Globe, TM, Sun Cellular and Bayan Wireless subscribers or 231 for Smart and Talk N Text subscribers. The choice is yours!

PinoyBigBrotherThe wild, wild, west invaded the famous yellow house in this afternoon's Uber! In a game called Bulls Versus Coyboys, two teams battled it out in this country-inspired competition. The Blue Team of Jon and Mariel, Victor and Yayo first paired to play as bulls. Jon and Victor wore horns on their heads to knock down the barrels in the center of the field to earn points. Meanwhile, the Red Team of Will, Riza, Megan, and Ruben played as cowboys protecting the barrel and will try to catch the bulls with long ropes to earn points. But the real challenge for them however was to perfectly PinoyBigBrothercatch the bulls running wildly around the big ranch.

Throughout the game, Mcoy and Ethel stayed outside the ranch to keep score of both the cowboys and the bulls, while Baron and Donnie served as game officials. In the first round, the Blue Team attempted to take down the barrel, but the Red Team caught them in their ropes, hence, the Red Team earned a point. The two teams traded places in the second round wherein the PinoyBigBrotherBlue Team managed to earn a point, but it was followed by another point from the Red Team.

After a couple of more rounds, Big Brother called off the game and announced the Red Team as winners with three points while the Blue Team only scored a point. As their prize, Will, Riza, Megan, and Ruben will get to taste the special steak dinner courtesy of Mariel's grandfather who is actually in the business of making steaks. Will Mariel find out that the prize of the other team actually came from her beloved grandfather? Stay tuned for more developments on this story. Tonight, catch new HOH Will treat Riza to a special dinner, that sends Ethel in a jealous yet hilarious mood.
