Alexa Ilacad and Albie Casino have cleared their misunderstanding inside the Pinoy Big Brother house.
In the episode that aired on Saturday, November 6, 2021, Albie made the first move to make amends to Alexa after days of not talking to each other.
Their clash started when Albie became increasingly irritated with Alexa over a peanut butter jar.
Albie accused Alexa of hiding the peanut butter jar, while some housemates reasoned out to Albie that Alexa can keep the jar because she bought it from her share of the weekly budget.
Even then, Albie got annoyed with her, saying she has no right to hide food.
What further inflamed the situation was Albie raising his voice to Alexa during their punishment task.
It happened when Alexa was showing to housemate Benedix Ramos where to change clothes and Albie butted in, “Bawal nga.”
Peeved, Alexa snarled, “I’m talking to him [Benedix] not to you.”
Albie, vexed, bellowed at Alexa while tapping the table to emphasize his point, “But that’s the point, bro! It’s so obvious, e. That’s the point, bro!”
Afterwards, Alexa tried to reach out to Albie, but he was “not in the mood,” explaining his “social battery” was low.
In the Saturday episode, Albie also settled the petty quarrels he had with the other housemates.
He first approached Shanaia Gomez, whom he shouted at in one instance during their punishment task in a makeshift jailhouse outside the PBB house.
Albie then talked to Big Brother inside the confession room about how to make things right with Alexa.
They are Kapamilya colleagues and, in fact, were together in the TV series Init Sa Magdamag, which ended not too long ago.
Albie told Kuya, “Tinatantiya ko pa rin kung paano kakausapin si Alexa.
“Goal ko today, tomorrow, I will start fresh, no more bad feelings, just move forward.
“Naghihintay lang po ako ng tamang tiyempo, di ko kasi alam anong atake ko kay Alexa.”
Later that day, Albie apologized to Alexa for shouting at her.
They hugged, putting the peanut butter issue behind them.
Alexa told Albie, “Hindi pa nga sigaw iyon, e.”
Albie said, “Pasensya na.”
Alexa responded, “I love you still, I love you always.”
Albie remarked, “Ang tagal na nating magkakilala, ngayon pa tayo na-bad trip sa isa’t isa.”
Alexa quipped, “Now, I can touch your abs again.”
TJ Valderrama, who mediated the squabble between Albie and Alexa, hugged both of them.
Albie later related to Big Brother how the apology happened.
“Nanghingi lang po ako ng pasensiya sa kanya. Inakbayan ko na lang po siya ‘tapos sabi ko lang po sa kanya, ‘Pasensiya na, nag-abot-abot lang sa akin ang lahat.’
“Si Alexa naman, sabi niya, ‘Sus, hindi pa nga sigawan iyan, e.’
“Happy na po ako na wala nang tension dito sa bahay and, feeling ko po, tama po iyong desisyon ko na hinintay ko po talaga na talagang ngayon kami nag-usap.
“Ayoko pong minamadali iyong mga ganyang bagay pero hindi rin po tama na pinapatagal ng sobra. Hinahanap ko lang po talaga iyong tamang tiyempo.
“Katulad ng lagi kong sinasabi, ang tagal ko na siyang kilala, kami iyong excited na makakasama ko siya dito.
“Siguro po, di ba, sa pamilya, meron talagang oras na nag-aaway pero hindi naman ibig sabihin noon hindi niyo na mahal iyong isa’t isa.”
Meanwhile, Alexa did not say anything about the peanut-butter issue.
ALEXA, ALBIE UP FOR EVICTION
On November 6. Mr. Supranational 2021 John Adajar was the first celebrity housemate to be evicted in the season.
It was after he got the lowest number of text and Kumu votes. The two other nominees up for eviction were Karen Bordador and KD Estrada.
On November 7, PBB announced the second set of nominees: Albie, Alexa, KD, and Anji Salvacion.
Albie got the highest number of points from the housemates with 19 points.
KD got 11 points while Alexa and Anji both got four points.
The housemate who will leave the house will be determined on Saturday, November 13, through the combined number of text and Kumu votes.
Just like in the previous season, the viewers are given the power to vote to save their favorite housemate or vote to evict the housemate they wanted out of the house.
The total evict votes will be deducted from the total number of save votes. The housemate who gets the lowest total number of votes will be the evictee.
