Just like Pinoy Big Brother Double Up, the third season of Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition will have two houses which will compete against each other week after week.

The housemates were assigned to live in either the luxurious Villa or the simple Apartment. As a housewarming gift, Big Brother gave comforters to the housemates in the Villa and a banig to each housemate in the Apartment for their sleeping mat.

For the opening number of PBB Teen Clash of 2010, viewers were treated to performances by Yeng Constantino, Bugoy Cariño, Izzy Canillo, Young JV, Jaco, and an all-girls singing group called Miles.

Big Brother usually has 16 housemates in one season, but last night, April 10, only 15 were introduced to the public. One more slot is left for either the Dependent Darling or the Courageous Lakan.

It turns out that doctors raised concerns about the medical condition of the Dependent Darling, a girl from Central Visayas. For this reason, Big Brother postponed revealing the identity of the 16th housemate. This Sunday, April 11, Big Brother will announce whether she will be allowed to enter his house or if he will choose the Courageous Lakan, a boy who also hails from the Visayas.

THE HOUSEMATES. The housemates who will live in the Villa are the following: Joe Vargas (Swabeng Gimikero ng Quezon City), Devon Seron (Bubbly Promdi ng Cebu), Eslove Briones (Sigang Istokwa ng Tawi-Tawi), Shey Bustamante (Bombshell ng Mindoro), Angelo Pasco (Struggling Scholar ng Antique), Kyra Custodio (Giling Girl ng Batangas), and Yong Gopez (Boy Breadwinner ng Pampanga).

The housemates who will live in the Apartment are the following: Romeo "Potz" Jalosjos III (Political Stud ng Dipolog), Rebecca Chiongbian (Heiress Wonder ng Cebu), Yen Santos (Little Miss Sunshine ng Nueva Ecija), Patrick Sugui (Boy Next Door ng Mandaluyong), Tricia Santos (Athletic Muse ng Davao), Kazel Kinouchi (Shopaholic Chick ng Parañaque), Ivan Dorschner (Striking Stud ng Rizal), at Fretzie Bercede (Charming Angel ng Cebu).

For their first special task, Big Brother told the housemates that they would all have to match the names of their rival housemates with their respective photos. If anyone commits a mistake, the whole house will have to choose a housemate to be evicted next week.

Pinoy Big Brother Teen Clash of 2010 will air weeknights after Habang May Buhay on ABS-CBN.
