It's official: Pinoy BigBrother Celebrity Edition 2 is extended for two weeks and will run untilJanuary 5, 2008. The celebrity housemates were shocked to learn about this newdevelopment and were given the chance to leave Big Brother's house if they didnot feel up to the challenge.
Even celebrity houseguest MarielRodriguez, who was supposed to leave the PBB house last Saturday, November 24,opted to stay inside the closely monitored house. This means that the Big Four,whoever they will be, would not be able to spend Christmasand New Year with their family and loved ones.
Big Brother sweetened the dealby doubling the prizes for the Big Four so the Big Winner of PBBCE 2 stands towin P2 million cash and a condo unit among others. At stake for the second bigplacer is P1 million; for the third big placer, P600,000; and for the fourth bigplacer, P400,000.
For a few minutes, Big Brotheropened the gates to the outside world for any housemate who would opt to walkaway from this opportunity.
