Big Brother tested the bond of the celebrity housemates by having them undergo a face-to-face nomination during the seventh nomination night of Pinoy Big Brother Celebrity Edition 2. Last December 16, the housemates were given medallions that they were supposed to hang around the necks of those they chose to nominate.
The remaining housemates gave various reasons for wanting to evict their fellow tenant. They put medallions bearing the number 2 and 1 around the neck of those whom they evicted. Baron Geisler got a total of six votes, while Riza Santos and Yayo Aguila had four votes each.
Head of Household Jon Avila had the privilege of voting someone for eviction automatically. He used this right to vote for the eviction of Racing Goddess Gaby dela Merced. "Sorry for doing this. It's nothing personal. Dito sa ating bahay, you've spent the least time than any of the housemates, and you've experienced the outside world. Sorry," said Jon sincerely.
The four nominees then gave their pleas on why they should remain and spend Christmas inside the Big Brother house.
Riza asked the public to support her now that she is shedding her cloak of shyness. "Buong buhay ko, mahiyain ako at nahihirapan akong makipag-usap sa ibang tao. Ngayon lang, now that I've spent my time here, the walls I've built up my whole life are falling at ngayon lang lumalabas ang totoong pagkatao ko," said the beauty queen as tears fell down her face. "Sobrang gusto kong mag-stay dito sa bahay ‘coz the real Riza is coming out now. Sana I get to stay here longer."
As for the Wild Child who became drunk during their drinking spree last week, he told the viewers of the show: "Kayo na po ang bahala but ako talaga, buong puso ko gusto ko po dito. Tingin ko po, I deserve to prove pa to the people that I can be a better person."
Mom in Distress Yayo Aguila couldn't stop the tears from flowing when she said that she's doing everything for the sake of her children. "Sa buong buhay ko po, ngayon lang po ako nahiwalay sa mga anak ko...Pinili kong mahiwalay sa mga anak dahil may gusto po akong gawin para sa kanila. Yung pag-stay ko dito, kaya ko lang ginawa kasi gusto kong mabigyan sila ng magandang kinabukasan."
Gaby, who thought of exiting voluntarily last week, now feels that she still has to experience a lot inside the house. "I think it's but just na nominate ako this week. Nakalabas ako at ngayon nakabalik ako. Ngayon, ang taong bayan ang maghuhusga kung magi-stay ako o hindi. Ang masasabi ko lang po, gusto ko talagang mag-Christmas dito kasama ang bago kong pamilya. Gagawin ko ang lahat para ipakita na may rason ako para mag-stay dito," said the race-car driver.
In the end, four housemates got the black medallion signifying that they are in danger of being evicted from Big Brother's house. These are Baron Geisler, Yayo Aguila, Riza Santos, and Gaby dela Merced.
