Pinoy Big Brother calls out fake Facebook account over false housemate selection process

The management of Pinoy Big Brother quashes false scheme over housemate selection for its new season. They said that they will never determine the new housemates for the 7th season through Facebook shares. PBB is expected to open auditions for its seventh season soon.



“We have NEVER chosen a housemate based on SHARING a photo on Facebook.”

This is part of the statement issued by ABS-CBN's reality show, Pinoy Big Brother, in response to a hoax contest that spread on Facebook.

Several weeks ago, a fake PBB Facebook page told its followers that the next set of housemates will be chosen from FB users who share a certain photo of the PBB house.

However, the official Facebook account of PBB countered this claim by issuing a statement that warned the public about the false housemate selection process.

They stated in their post: “We would like to remind everyone to please be guided when sharing information online.

“We have NEVER chosen a housemate based on SHARING a photo on Facebook.

“Make sure you're following our official page that has a blue check which means it has be verified by Facebook and our other official social media accounts.”

We would like to remind everyone to please be guided when sharing information online. We have NEVER chosen a housemate...
