Twelve more housemates will join Pinoy Big Brother 737.
This was revealed by ABS-CBN on its primetime newscast, TV Patrol, last night, August 3.
At the moment, there are 6 teen housemates and one houseguest (Enchong Dee) still in PBB 737.
Identities of two of the 12 regular housemates were already revealed.
These are Richard Juan, the Charming Chinito of Paranaque, and Mikee Agustin, the Bungisngis Bebot ng Bulacan.
CUM LAUDE GRADUATE. Richard Juan, who hails from Hong Kong, is 100% Chinese but he considers himself as a true Pinoy.
In 2014, he was known as Richard Hwan when he joined Eat Bulaga's "You're My Foreignoy" contest. He won the Dabarkad's Choice Award. For several months, he hosted "Dabarkad's Pinoy Henyo" segment.
In his interview aired on TV Patrol, Richard said:
"What's the definition of a Filipino for you?
"For me, there are people na blood-wise, Filipino sila pero wala yung heart na Pilipino.
"Although I've been here for four and a half years, I'm more Filipino than a lot of my friends."
Richard is a cum laude graduate of University of the Philippines Diliman where he took up Broadcast Communication.
His previous girlfriend was a Filipina.
The Charming Chinito of Paranaque revealed his showbiz crushes among ABS-CBN stars are Julia Barretto and Bea Alonzo.
ONLINE SENSATION. Mikee Agustin has tried out for ABS-CBN's reality show twice in the past: during the 1st PBB Teen Edition (which Kim Chiu won) and in the 2014 PBB All In Edition (wherein Daniel Matsunaga emerged as the Big Winner).
On her third try, the 21-year-old online sensation known for her cover songs finally got in.
Mikee is the girlfriend of Yexel Sebastian, the brother of the late Jam Sebastian (of JaMich fame). ï¿½
To date, Mikee's Instagram account has 117,000 followers.
She looks up to her mom who is a single mother.
MOCK BIG NIGHT. Meanwhile, inside the PBB 737 house, a mock elimination was held to determine the Big Four among the remaining housemates.
Enchong Dee was tapped to serve as the director, scriptwriter and host of the mock Big Night that was aired last night, August 3.
Bailey Thomas May and Ylona Garcia got the lowest votes from their fellow housemates, placing them in the bottom two.
Upon tallying the votes, Kenzo Gutierrez emerged as the 4th Big Placer.
Kamille Filoteo was named as 3rd Big Placer while and Jimboy Martin became the 1st Big Placer.
If it were up to the remaining housemates themselves, Franco Rodriguez would become the Big Winner of PBB 737.
After the mock voting and awarding, Big Brother instructed Bailey and Ylona to sleep in the garden of the house.
Another eviction is scheduled to take place this Wednesday, August 5. This week's nominees are Kamille, Ylona and Franco.
