It’s been four months since Alyssa Valdez first entered the Pinoy Big Brother house as a celebrity housemate on the long-running reality show’s tenth season on October 6, 2021. The pro athlete lost no time in getting back into the game after leaving the PBB house and being declared as one of PBB: Kumunity’s Top 2 celebrity housemates along with Anji Salvacion last January.
The 28-year-old volleyball superstar shared an update with her fans last February 11 after going back into the training bubble with her team for the upcoming season of the Premier Volleyball League (PVL). On her Instagram account, she wrote, “For the past few months, most especially when I was in the PBB House, Saturdays weren’t the best days. We had to see someone leave the house or nominate someone. Opo, lagi ako umiiyak. 😅 But now, here in the bubble, Saturday night means last day of practice, time to rest and recover and bond with the team. Pero nakakaiyak pa rin yung practices. 😂
“Thankful for everything!”
Last January, Alyssa’s talent management group revealed that the she had tested positive for COVID-19 after experiencing mild symptoms. Since then, Alyssa has been cleared to play volleyball again after recovering at home.
Dubbed as “Ang Headstrong Phenom of Batangas” during her stay in PBB, Alyssa was so well-loved during her stint that she was only nominated once during the show’s 11-week run. She and and Anji received the highest numbers of "save" votes with Alyssa garnering 22.63 percent of "save" votes and Anji receiving 13.60 percent last January 1.
