Ex-PBB housemate Fourth Pagotan airs thoughts on twin brother Fifth’s coming out


081114-5th4th_main.jpgAlmost a month since Pinoy Big Brother All In housemate Fifth Pagotan came out as a bisexual inside the PBB house, his twin brother Fourth finally aired his thoughts about the former’s controversial decision.

Even before he was evicted, Fourth shared to Big Brother inside the confession room that their family are very well aware of Fifth’s sexual preference. But during their live appearance on The Buzz on Sunday, Fourth revealed that he initially deemed Fifth’s confession as unnecessary.

“Noong una talaga ayoko kasi wala naman talaga siyang dapat ipaliwanag. Wala naman siyang utang sa mga tao so anong dapat niyang bayaran? Sabi ko sakanya magtira siya ng baon para sa sarili niya,” he shared what he told his brother.

Fourth felt that Fifth could still get into show business even without telling about his preference. “Hindi rin naman kailangang sabihin, pakita niya nalang kung ano. Basta kung tatanggapin siya ng tao, ganon nalang.”

But then, something changed Fourth’s heart “Nung nakita kong bigat na bigat na siya at hirap na hirap na siya at sinabi niya na gumaan na ang pakiramdam niya, mas natuwa rin ako at gumaan rin ang pakiramdam ko na nakita siyang mas okay.”

In hindsight, Fourth recalled that he and his twin never really talked about his sexuality particularly since they’re not very close as well.

“Nung high school alam na. Hindi namin napapagusapan pero alam mo na. parang ramdam na and understood na alam ko. Understood na niya na alam na namin sa isa’t-isa pero hindi namin binaganggit kasi hindi nga talaga kami open sa isa’t-isa eh,” he shared.

But did he expect that Fifth would come out?

“Hindi. Hindi. So nagulat ako tsaka naguluhan ako sa tanong. Sabi niya ‘Fourth sinabi ko na kay Kuya ‘yung gay issue sa labas.’ Sabi ko ‘Anong gay issue? ‘Wag mong isipin ‘yun. ‘Wag kang mag-isip ng mga negatibo,’” Fourth said.

But Fourth couldn’t be any grateful about all that’s been said and done especially since it has changed their lives.

“Natutunan namin sa bahay na ‘yun si Fourth at Fifth magkakampi talaga at hindi kami magkalaban. Patagal ng patagal doon naming naramdaman na kami talaga ang magkakampi doon tapos hindi kami magka-kumpitensya. So ang laki talaga ng natulong ng Pinoy Big Brother samin lalo na dito sa labas. 

“Sa pamilya namin ang laki ng pinagbago ng mga kapatid naming dahil nakita din nila samin dahil pinanood nila kami. ‘Yung Mommy ko, so pagkalabas ko naramdaman ko talaga na baby nako, tapos ‘yung mga kapatid ko ibang-iba na talaga,” Fourth happily shared.

After PBB, the twins would like to follow their sister comedienne Chariz Solomon’s footsteps and eventually join showbiz. “Kung may mga tsansa pong ibibigay samin gagawin po naming ang 100%. Gagawin naming lahat para dito kasi andito napo kami eh, so tuloy-tuloy po,” Fourth said.
