Mae Alfante is the third evictee of the batch 4 of Pinoy Big Brother Otso. The Inday Indak ng Davao left the house in the episode aired on Saturday, June 15, after she received the lowest amount of votes from the viewing public.
Mae received 15.37% of the votes. The 22-year-old dancer lost to three other nominees: Kiara Takahashi, Franki Russell, and Akie Poblete, who received 36.44%, 24.64%, and 23.55% respectively.
Mae’s three-week stay in the house was marred with controversy. She was nominated by her fellow housemates in the first week because she chose to be alone, and did not make an effort to reach out.
She opened up in the second week and grew close to Sky Quizon, who helped her emerge from her shell. But her closeness with Sky was a double-edged sword. While this made her project a warmer personality in the house, it also allowed her to comfortably joke around with Sky.
One of Mae’s jokes ran afoul with viewers in the past week, when she constantly pestered Sky about his gender. Her perceived need to help her friend to come out of the closet annoyed Sky and angered PBB Otso viewers.
Mae had several positive moments in the house. She was the leader of the second weekly task, and she led one of the teams to victory.
She also had a tearful reunion with her estranged dad, whom she hasn’t seen for years.
PBB Otso is ending in seven weeks. Who will become the Big Four of this fourth batch, and who will become the Big Winner? Viewers will find out in the upcoming episodes.
