When PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) talked with Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) business unit head Lauren Dyogi last June 26, he revealed that there would be a short PBB edition before the year ends.
Back then, the noted director pointed out that their having a Celebrity Edition was "too much pressure from outside the house, not necessarily the housemates." However, it has been recently revealed that the next edition of PBB will indeed feature Filipino celebrities from different fields: movie and television, sports, professional modeling, and others. What caused this change? Direk Lauren says that it was management mandate that caused this shift.
According to the official website of Pinoy Big Brother Season 2, the search is on for the 12 housemates who will participate in another PBB Celebrity Edition scheduled to begin this October. The PBB business unit head says that all celebrities, even those who only think they deserve the status, can freely audition.
Celebrities, between 20 to 40 years old, who have "interesting" personalities, and are brave enough to face all of Big Brother’s challenges may send their letter of intent and application to organizers of the reality show. Applications will be carefully screened until they come up with the list of 12 celebrity housemates for the season.
Just two weeks after naming Beatriz Saw as the Big Winner of PBB Season 2, fans of the ABS-CBN reality show can now look forward to meeting a different set of personalities come October.
