Now that the Pinoy Big Brother Connect has opened online auditions for the newest season of the global reality television franchise, anyone who fulfills the age requirement of the show can submit a one-minute video to serve as their online audition to become a PBB housemate. Last October 21, Ogie Diaz shared his thoughts on social media regarding those who auditioned who supported the ABS-CBN shutdown last July.
Last October 22, PBB Teens first ever Big Winner Kim Chiu also shared her thoughts on those who want to join the reality show despite their political views. “At least di nanaig yung sinabi nilang yes to ABS-CBN shutdown. Meron pa ring liwanag at the same time, sa ginagawa nilang yan, sinu-support pa rin nila yung kapamilya channel so parang kinain nila yung sinabi nila (laughs). Pero at the same time maganda rin kasi at least nabigyan sila ng hope na maging isang housemate and matupad nila yung pangarap nila for their family. And naniniwala pa rin sila that because of this Kapamilya channel, because of this Pinoy BIg Brother opening the house again sa lahat ng mga nangangarap, at least naniniwala pa rin sila na there’s still hope kahit na sinabi nilang yes to ABS-CBN shutdown. Naniniwala sila na meron pa ring pag-asa dito sa ABS,” she shared during the blogcon for her upcoming digital horror film U-Turn.
The U-Turn actress also gave advice for those who have yet to submit their audition video for PBB. “Just be yourself. Huwag kang magpanggap na ganyan ka, kasi kung ano yung personality mo, yan yung magugustuhan nila. Kasi gusto nila iba ibang personality, may funny, may parang misteryoso, ganyan. Kung ano ka, yun yung ipakita mo dahil yan yung mahalaga. It’s a combination of different personalities in one house kaya nga nag-ka-clash sila,” she shared.
The 25-year-old actress also shared what keeps her optimistic and focused on her personal and professional goals even after receiving flak for sharing public statements earlier this year. “Siguro what keeps me motivated and ganito pa rin yung outlook ko in life is I choose not to read comments, I choose not to entertain people who are yung nag-judge sa ‘yo. I chose to be on a higher position and then hindi ko sila in-entertain. Mas kilala ko kasi yung self ko so I want to stay like this after everything that’s happened kasi ganito naman ako bago pa man yun. Siguro yung pagkakamali na yun mga wala pang five minutes ng buhay ko sa 20-plus years na ‘to di ba? So that’s more important than the two minutes fiasco na yun na hindi ko maintindihan,” she added.
Watch the horror film U-Turn starting October 30 by purchasing tickets online for P150 via KTX.ph, iWantTFC, Cignal, or Sky Cable. U-Turn also stars Tony Labrusca and JM De Guzman. Directed by Derick Cabrido.
