As auditions start for the adult edition of Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) Kumunity Season 10 as well as casting for the celebrity edition, longtime PBB hosts Toni Gonzaga, Bianca Gonzalez, and Robi Domingo shared some of their most unforgettable moments as housemates and hosts of the country’s longest running reality show. For Bianca who was also part of the first Celebrity Edition in 2006, her most recent memorable moment from the show happened just this year because of all the adjustments they had to make because of the ongoing pandemic.
“Honestly isa sa mga pinaka memorable yung last season. Kasi pati kaming mga host work from home. Eh sanay kami sa buong 13, 14 years ng pag-ho-host, pupunta lang kami sa PBB house may mag-me-makeup, may mag-blo-blowdry, i-bi-briefing ng script tapos ready na yung setup, bababa ka, spiels ka, yun na yun. And last season, lahat kami. It was such an experience na challenge at the same time mahirap but at the same time excited kang gawin and I remember nung nag-start kasi yung PBB I think Toni was in lock-in for a movie. And so nung nag-first nomination night it had to be me and hindi ako makapaniwala na nag-no-nomination night ako from the house. Like naka-patch ako sa Zoom, pinakita sa akin lumabas yung face ko sa sala kausap ko yung mga housemates, yung parang grabe puwede pala ito. I can’t believe it. For last season ang daming kinailangan matutunan i-adjust, definitely memorable. Tapos yung mag-Big Night na walang audience naku ibang level din yun. Last season isa sa mga grabe,” Bianca shared.
After starting out as one of the original hosts of PBB’s first season in 2005 along with Willie Revillame and Mariel Rodriguez, Toni Gonzaga said it was her experience being trapped inside the house after live nomination night in 2008 that is a standout memory for her.
“Nung nakulong ako sa loob kasi wala talaga akong idea nung time na yun at saka inisip ko nun kinulong na si Mariel (Rodriguez) tapos magkukulong pa ng isang host. Inisip ko talaga imposibleng mangyari yun tapos bigla akong kinulong. Dalawang host kaming nakulong. Si Bianca (Gonzalez) lang gumawa ng trabaho namin sa labas. So memorable yun for us kasi hindi namin naisip na puwedeng mangyari yun,” Toni said.
Former teen housemate Robi Domingo said that his Pinoy Big Brother: Teen Edition Plus batch in 2008 was lucky because he was able to travel together with his fellow housemates then like Big Winner Ejay Falcon and Beauty Gonzalez.
“Yun ang isa sa mga nami-miss ko, yung dadalhin yung ibang bahay sa ibang lugar. In my edition we went to Palawan and we were there for a week. Ang sarap ng pakiramdam. At least iba yung setting pero andun pa rin yung kaba. So that’s one of my favorite moments inside the Big Brother house,” he added.
