McCoy de Leon and Elisse Joson became close to each other while being housemates in PBB Lucky Season 7.


Are love teams in Pinoy Big Brother scripted?

ABS-CBN entertainment production division head Lauren Dyogi addressed this oft-asked question by uploading a video on his YouTube channel.

In the video uploaded on July 10, the former business unit head of PBB recalled the popular love teams that originated in ABS-CBN's reality show.

"Ang unang sumikat na love team ay ang Kimerald. Si Kim [Chiu] nag-audition sa Cebe, si Gerald [Anderson], sa Manila.

"Sa totoo lang, ha, mas marami pang magaganda kaysa kay Kim na housemates na pwede ring magustuhan ni Gerald pero ang nagkagaanan ng loob ay sina Gerald, si Kim, at si Mikee Lee at that time."





The Kapamilya Network executive explained that since the housemates are in close proximity with one another and spending so much time together, it is but natural for the housemates to develop feelings for each other.

"Normal po na pag kayo lang ang magkakasama sa isang lugar, 24/7, sa mahabang panahon, normal tayong mga tao, may mga pakiramdam po tayo. May magugustuhan at may magugustuhan tayo.

"'Yang pagkakaroon ng love teams sa loob ng Bahay o yung mga nagkakagustuhan sa isa't isa, iyan ay dahil sa setup ng Pinoy Big Brother sa Pilipinas at sa buong mundo.

"Normal silang tao, mayroong pakiramdam sila, pwede po silang magkagustuhan."

He then recalled the events that led to the creation of McLisse, the love team of McCoy de Leon and Elisse Joson, in PBB Lucky Season 7.

Direk Lauren narrated: "Ito po ang totoong nangyari diyan. At that time, binuo namin ang Hashtags noon. Ang una naming inimbitahan na maging housemate ay si Ronnie [Alonte]."




Ronnie Alonte

Ronnie Alonte has been dubbed by ABS-CBN as the Kilig King.

Direk Lauren continued, "Kaso, nag-alinlangan si Ronnie. Ayaw niyang maging housemate.

"The next person na willing to be a housemate was McCoy [de Leon].

"Then si Elisse [Joson] naman noon, sikat ang kanyang commercial sa McDonald's. Inirekomenda ng [PBB staff] na bakit hindi i-consider si Elisse.

"Na-consider si Elisse at pumasa sa auditions. Nung pinagsama ang dalawa, akalain ba namin na magkagustuhan sila, na matipuhan ni McCoy si Elisse."

He stressed, "Hindi po yun planado. It's an advantage to us na nangyari yun pero hindi po yun sadya."

To sum up, Direk Lauren said that they do not write scripts for PBB and they do not setup housemates to fall in love with each other.

"Hindi po planado ang mga love team. Of course, we welcome dahil isa po iyan sa mga pinapanood ng mga manonood. "We don't plan it, we are hoping somehow but it's never planned because we will never know.

"We cannot fake. We cannot impose an emotion or a feeling on a particular housemate.

"Hindi po totoong scripted ang mga love team."
