The first set of nominees for Pinoy Big Brother Otso's adult housemates has been revealed.
In the January 27 episode, it was shown that Wakim Regalado, Abi Kassem, and 2-in-1 housemates Mark and Apey Obera were put up for eviction.
The 19-year-old Wakim got the highest nomination points at 11. Abi, Lou, Mitch, Fumiya, Yamyam, and Mark/Apey nominated him for being rude, saying a lot of bad words, and overthinking a lot about the game. Yamyam also mentioned that Wakim seems to revolted (nandidiri) by him when he comes for a hug.
The 20-year-old Abi, meanwhile, got the least nomination points at four. Andre and Wakim nominated her for being hard-headed and being lazy. Andre also had an issue with her in the past week, when he had to rebuff Abi's confession that she likes him. Andre had to remind her that she has a boyfriend.
The last nominee was 2-in-1 housemates Mark and Apey Obera, with six nomination points. Abi, Andre, Lou, Fumiya and Yamyam said they were giving their nomination points to Apey because of how she has treated her brother Mark.
It can be recalled that Apey entered the house alone, while her brother Mark remained in Camp Star Hunt. A week ago, however, the show made the estranged siblings meet each other in the house and then changed Apey's status from single housemates to 2-in-1.
Apey was visibly annoyed by this change, and her attitude changed from being joyful to sour. In a tense confrontation showed in the January 26 episode, Apey admitted to her brother that she dislikes their new situation because she wants to work alone for their family.
"Ang hindi ko matanggap dahil gusto ko ako yung magtaguyod ng pamilya. Ako ang dahilan kung bakit aangat tayo. Gusto ko ako ang magbigay ng lahat para ipunin tayong lahat. Ito lang yung gusto ko na ipagmalaki akong lahat pati mga taong nangmaliit sa amin," Apey confessed.
Mark appealed to Apey that she has to lower her pride. "Sana matauhan ka ng kaunti. Wala pang taong gumagawa sa akin ng ganito ikaw pa na kapatid ko. Iisa tayo. Wala akong kasalanan sa ’yo. Maging tao ka naman. Hindi na tama yung ginagawa mo kasi yung tao pwedeng magmahal, pwedeng umunawa. Ano ginagawa mo sa akin ngayon? Para akong hayop, e. Wala pang estudyante nag-gaganon sa akin kahit asawa ko wala. Pero hinayaan ko yun kasi mahal kita."
Will Apey and Mark be able to fix their relationship and survive the eviction night next weekend? Or will Wakim or Abi leave the house instead? The voting lines are now open.
