Jimboy Martin says he was ready to come in second place.
Pinoy Big Brother 737
Teen Big Winner Jimboy Martin expressed how happy he is about fulfilling one of his dreams when he won the reality show contest.
In an interview with some members of the press on Monday afternoon, November 9, he recalled, “Nag-flashback po lahat ng experiences ko noon. Naalala ko yung bata ako tapos lahat ng natutunan ko sa Bahay ni Kuya, biglang nag-flashback po.”
It was a close fight between Jimboy and second Big Placer Ylona Garcia during the Big Night as he garnered 56.76% while Ylona had 43.24% of total votes. What does he think the people saw in him that they made him the Big Winner?
“Siguro kung sino po ako. Kasi ayun lang naman po yung ginawa namin sa Bahay ni Kuya, ang pagpapakatotoo. At saka siguro hindi po ako sumuko sa mga tasks,” said the Barrio Rapper ng Nueva Vizcaya.
Nonetheless, he admitted conditioning himself already that he about being second Big Placer prior to the announcement of the Big Winner to avoid getting disappointed. “Inexpect ko na sa sarili ko na ako na yung second Big Placer. Hinahanda ko na po yung sarili ko. Kumbaga kung matawag man ako, handa na ako. Pag hindi man po ako matawag, mas magaan na po yung loob ko,” Jimboy explained.
When asked how his conversation with his family went after he was declared Big Winner, Jimboy shared, “Si papa dinaan niya po sa yakap eh. Dinaan niya sa higpit ng yakap niya tapos yung talon talon. Nakita ko po sa kanila na sobrang saya nila at sobrang saya ko rin po dahil mabibigyan ko na sila ng bahay at lupa.” Aside from a house and lot, Jimboy also won an Asian Tour Package for two and P1 million in cash.
Jimboy thanked everyone who supported his journey inside Big Brother house. “Thank you so much po sa lahat ng sumuporta sa akin at mahal ko po kayo. Kung wala po kayo, wala po kami. God bless you po.”
