Big Brother gave the celebrity housemates the task of staging a concert for the benefit of the inmates of the Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center. (L-R) Gaby dela Merced, Ethel Booba, Yayo Aguila, and Ruben Gonzaga rehearse for the concert that will take place at the PBB eviction hall this Saturday, November 10.


It has become a tradition in Pinoy Big Brother for the housemates to hold a song-and-dance performance inside the house. Big Brother thinks the time is ripe for his new tenants to showcase their talents. Thus, he has assigned the housemates of PBB Celebrity Edition 2 to stage a concert this Saturday, November 10.

Part of the requirement for the concert is for the housemates to perform at least two original songs that they have to compose themselves. Other numbers in the line-up are an all-boys dance performance and an all-girls song-and-dance routine.

Already, issues have been arising as to who should make the compositions and choreography, tasks which Mcoy Fundales, Ruben Gonzaga, and Ethel Booba have embraced. Everyone else has been helpful and cooperative. Mariel Rodriguez, however, has refused to do a certain number that will require her to sing. Will the housemates allow her to skip this one without putting up their own objections?

Dubbed by the housemates as Concert for a Cause...of Delay, the event is actually for the benefit of the inmates of Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center (CPDRC) who themselves are Internet celebrities because of their algorithm and dance videos on Youtube.

The celebrity housemates will perform at the eviction hall on Saturday evening in front of a live audience composed of 150 people. Tickets are now on sale at P1000 each. Aside from seeing the celebrity housemates in person, the audience will also get to judge whether the performers have succeeded in their weekly task. Plus, viewers will have a chance to take their photo with Racing Goddess Gaby dela Merced who is scheduled to exit on that same day. As a token, ticket holders will also receive an autographed t-shirt. Proceeds of Concert for a Cause...of Delay will be used to buy inmates' needs such as toiletries and bath towels.
