As part of the YOLO (You Only Live Once) theme, the housemates of Pinoy Big Brother All In got the chance to have special moments during their time on ABS-CBN’s reality show.
PBB housemate Vickie Rushton got her YOLO moment with the much-anticipated meeting with boyfriend actor Jason Abalos last August 2.
Jason had a chat with Big Brother before meeting with Vickie.
He described Vickie as an idealistic girlfriend who compares relationships with those depicted in movies, TV shows and novels.
When asked to describe himself as a boyfriend, Jason admitted, “Ako kasi medyo may edad na po ako at naramdaman ko na ang responsibilidad.
“Kung saka-sakaling dumating na ang panahon na magpapakasal na ko, siyempre, pinaghahandaan ko na ang buhay ng magiging pamilya ko kaya medyo focused ako sa trabaho.
“Medyo hindi ko siya nabibigyan ng full attention.”
Holding a bouquet of flowers in his hands, Jason approached Vickie who was waiting for him at the living room area.
The couple hugged each other tightly. Vickie greeted her beau, “ang payat mo.”
Jason first opened up by saying, “Gusto kong mag-sorry. Ang dami kong na-realize sa labas. Sobra kong nakita kung ano ako bilang boyfriend mo. Sobra kong nakita kung ano ka bilang girlfriend ko. Ang dami kong pagkukulang. So ngayon, ito ang simula para makabawi ako sa ‘yo… kung gusto mo pa.
“Hindi ko alam ang tumatakbo sa isip mo. Nahihirapan akong nakikita kang nasasaktan. Baba, God knows how much I love you!”
Jason’s voice broke as he continued, “Nasasaktan ako dahil hindi ko alam kung ano ang nasa isip mo. Di ko alam ang nangyayari sa ‘yo. Pinaghahawakan ko lang yung pinag-usapan natin bago ka pumasok sa bahay.
“Gusto kitang makausap...pero nakikita ko kung gaano ka kasaya dito.
“Pero nung nakita ko yung text mo, ok na ako… I love you.”
The couple hugged and held hands as they spent time together.
PINKY SWEAR MOMENT. Jason took this opportunity to ask Vickie why she started to have doubts about their relationship.
Vickie said that he might not have liked the fact that she revealed the way Jason treated her in the past.
But the actor said that he didn’t mind because it made him realize his shortcomings as a boyfriend.
After making amends with each other, the lovely couple did a “pinky swear” by intertwining their fingers together.
Jason kidded his girlfriend, the 2011 Mutya ng Pilipinas-International title holder, by saying, “’Kala ko, ibe-break mo na ako. Tatandang binata ako.”
The couple then met with the other housemates briefly.
Jason expressed his gratitude by saying, “Thank you lang guys inalagaan ninyo si Vickie dito. Parang seven years old siya dito.”
Jason then talked with Daniel Matsunaga, who is being linked to his girlfriend while inside the PBB house.
“Thank you, bro, alam ko naandito kayo… Na-appreciate ko yung ginagawa mo parang ikaw ang kuya nila.”
Daniel reached out to Jason and said, “Also, bro, just to let you know wala talaga yung mga jokes … ikaw ang boyfriend niya. Just to make things clear, di ko alam kung ano ang lalabas sa TV.”
Big Brother had separate meetings with Jason, Vickie and Daniel.
Jason disclosed to Kuya that his respect for Daniel deepened.
“Respeto ko sa tao [pertaining to Daniel] mas lalong lumaki, siya ang nag-initiate… natutuwa ako siya ang nagsimula ng bagay na ganito.”
As for Daniel, he admitted to Big Brother, “Siyempre, Kuya masaya ako para kay Vickie. Good thing they fixed everything, masaya si Vickie ngayon… Masaya because he believes in me po. Everything is ok.”
When Vickie was called in by Kuya, she told him that the experience taught her to learn to be more trusting. “Natutunan ko… dapat magtiwala din po at huwag pong mag-isip ng negative na bagay…Pagwo-worry yung po mismo ang nagpapalala ng mga bagay-bagay.”
Kuya gently advised that having a relationship takes a lot of maturity. “Ang pakikipagrelasyon takes a lot of maturity. It takes a lot of trust. It takes a lot of patience. But most of all, it takes a lot of love. Ang importante, kapag puno kayo ng problema… lagi ninyo babalikan ang pagmamahalan ninyo sa isa’t-isa.”
LATEST EVICTEE: FIFTH PAGOTON. Before announcing the latest evictee, the PBB hosts mentioned that a “back-to-back-back” eviction would continue to take place until Tuesday with the housemates voting each other off face-to-face.
Host Toni Gonzaga then announced the nominees for eviction: Fifth Pagoton, Joshua Garcia, Manolo Pedrosa and Jane Oineza.
From the four, host Toni called in Manolo as the first housemate who is “saved.” The second housemate to be called is Jane while the third person to be called is Joshua, leaving Fifth as the evicted housemate.
Fifth garnered 16.52% of votes while Manolo got 17.56%. Joshua received a 23.8% vote turnout for Joshua while Jane clinched the top position with 42.11%.
Kuya asked Fifth what was the most important lesson he learned during his stay.
“Maging totoo sa mga taong nasa paligid mo,” said Fifth, who admitted on the show that he is bisexual.
Fifth was very emotional when he was reunited with his twin brother, Fourth.
IS MANOLO THE NEW EVICTEE? During the August 3 episode of PBB All In, the housemates were made to do "Harapang Eviction." They had to put one or two balls, representing nomination points, inside a housemate's bag as they openly explained their reasons for voting for them to be evicted.
After tallying the votes, Manolo Pedrosa got six points but it was revealed that he would continue to stay inside the PBB house.
There will be other housemates who will be up for eviction and these chosen housemates will need to undergo a challenge.
The winner of the challenge will be saved from eviction while viewers will decide what will happen to the housemates who will lose.
