This past week, eight female and eight male teen Star Dreamers of Pinoy Big Brother Otso were sent to the Hundred Islands in Alaminos, Pangasinan. There, they faced a series of challenges to prove that they are worthy of stepping into Bahay ni Kuya as official teen housemates.
The girls conquered challenges like cliff diving and boating, while the boys rappelled and caught fish without fishing tools. They earned clues to get the key to the PBB house whenever they won every challenge.
After both groups separately got their keys, they were able to leave the island to go back to Manila so Kuya or Big Brother could decide who should become housemates in PBB Otso Teens Batch 2.
Kuya’s decision was revealed in the April 6 episode, where four new teen housemates were introduced.

The housemates initially struggled with the challenge, but they were able to complete it through solid teamwork. They were very excited to get into the house.
Meanwhile, there were four Star Dreamers who also entered Camp Star Hunt in the same night. They were Jem, Batit, Shami and Narcy. The four had to find hidden messages around the camp using a blacklight so that they can unlock the furniture.
NETIZENS RAISE QUESTIONS ABOUT WAKIM
Through Twitter, some netizens questioned why Wakim Regalado was included in the adult edition of PBB Otso and not in the teen edition.
Wakim was 19 years old just like the other housemates of PBB Otso Teens Batch 2.
A Twitter user using the handle @CruellaAnGelle posted: "19? Tapos nasa teens? Eh bakit si Wakim 19 din ba’t napunta sa adult? PBB made me confuse. #PBB8IslandBoys"
Another netizen wondered why Wakim was included in the adult edition when he auditioned for the teen edition. Twitter user @cherylljoytm also commented on a photo of the auditions that showed Seth Fedelin, Rhys Eugenio, and Wakim waiting at the Araneta Coliseum.
