What are the requirements needed to become a housemate in Pinoy Big Brother?

The latest Twitter posts of ABS-CBN TV production head Lauren Dyogi prove to be very enlightening.

Direk Lauren has been overseeing Pinoy Big Brother since the reality show first aired on the Kapamilya Network in 2005.

Now, as ABS-CBN's TV Production Head, Direk Lauren is still hands on when it comes to selecting the housemates who will be part of PBB.



PBB ALL IN. For the first time in the history of the Big Brother franchise, celebrities, teens, and adult housemates are combined in one edition: Pinoy Big Brother All In.

For 100 days, the chosen housemates will stay inside the closely monitored house until one of them emerges as the Big Winner.

The journey of the 18 housemates started when the reality show aired its pilot episode last Sunday night, April 27, 2014.
