Currently one of the most talked-about housemates in the current season of Pinoy Big Brother celebrity edition, comedian Brenda Mage has kept netizens abuzz with different reactions towards his actions inside the PBB house. Ever since entering the reality show last October, the 32-year-old actor, who was dubbed “Ang Fun-Along Comedian of Cagayan de Oro”, has shown his ability to interact with the different personalities of his fellow housemates.
During the December 7 episode of Pinoy Big Brother: Kumunity Season 10 while the housemates were playing a game about identifying fake and real news, Brenda revealed to his fellow housemates that before entering the PBB house he was already confirmed to have a role in ABS-CBN’s much awaited superhero series Mars Ravelo’s Darna The TV Series which stars Jane De Leon playing the title role. The revelation came up after Janella Salvador was shown to be cast as the iconic snake-haired villain Valentina.
In the confession room, Brenda talked further about why he chose to give up the unspecified role so that he could try his luck as a celebrity housemate this season. “Kasama sana ako sa Darna pero hindi ko naituloy dahil mas pinili kong makilala kayo dito sa Pinoy Big Brother. Ako po sana si Valentina, pero tinanggihan ko. Charot lang!” he told Big Brother jokingly.
Brenda Mage was announced as part of this year’s Pinoy Big Brother: Kumunity Season 10 last October where he shared his hope to be a good representation for the LGBTQ community during his stay inside the house. In a previous interview, he shared, “Ang pangarap ko lang dati manalo at sumikat e hindi nangyari. Ang pangarap ko na lang ngayon ay maka-inspire pa ng iba. Huwag nilang hayaan na ang pangarap ay manatiling pangarap. Magsumikap lang tayo.”
