For the 10th anniversary edition of Pinoy Big Brother, a teen edition will be launched tonight, June 20.
Two more housemates were introduced prior to the opening of PBB 737.
These were Barbie Imperial, tagged as the Doll Along Da Riles ng Albay, and Kenzo Gutierrez, the Astig Athlete ng Quezon City.
BARBIE OF ALBAY. Barbie Imperial is a 16-year-old Albay native who comes from a broken family. She is always longing for her father whom she only gets to see frequently.
They did not have a house of their own, which is why Barbie, her mother and her brother used to stay at a relative's house. They eventually settled “along the riles” of the Philippine National Railroad in Daraga, Albay.
Barbie joined ABS-CBN's reality show in the hopes of getting their own residence.
KENZO THE ASTIG ATHLETE. An Atenista who wants to join showbiz was the latest housemate introduced yesterday, June 19.
Karlo Lorenzo "Kenzo" Gutierrez, the Astig Athlete ng Quezon City, is part of the Ateneo de Manila University football team.
The youngest and only boy among five siblings, Kenzo was affected when his parents separated. He revealed that he was 10 years old when his dad (a businessman) and his mom (a stockbroker) parted ways. ï¿½
When asked why he joined Pinoy Big Brother, Kenzo explained that he has always been curious to learn what happens behind the scenes of the showbiz world.
"My dad wanted me to go to UP [University of the Philippines] because of the culture.
"Nasabi ko sa kanya na in a way, in PBB, I would be able to meet people from all over the country and it was backed up by how interested I was to join the showbiz family," he said in an interview aired on Aquino and Abunda Tonight.
The 18-year-old student of Management Economics recently split up with his girlfriend of two years.
When asked if he is looking for someone special now, he admitted, "At this point, I'm not really looking for it but of course, I'm open to the idea. But given the fact na kakagaling ko lang po sa breakup so it's not really my priority."
Earlier this week, PBB 737 housemates Ryan James Bacalla, Bailey May, Ailah Antopino, Jimboy Martin, and Kamille Filoteo were already introduced to the public.
