It was Mark Herras’ birthday on SOP Gigsters. SOP Interviews
Fun episode! The hopefuls learn to put on make-up with disastrous results.
Best in make-up: Arci and Bugz!
I loved this segment so much, I’m posting the entire make-up session of the boys.
Test 13 – Boys – ito ang galit sa nose-line! hahaha
Parang sirang plaka, sumayaw na naman ang Pinoy Big Brother cast sa ASAP to the tune of Pinoy Ako. Although in fairness, it’s almost like watching Rainier and Yasmien do their dance numbers on SOP Gigsters so siguro ok lang to let them have their fun. Cute naman si Sam. He has still not worn his welcome.
However this show still goes against every Big Brother-like show I’ve seen here in the U.S. This is the first time Big Brother was used as a “talent-search”. In fact, all the housemates are slated to star in their own drama series on ABS-CBN. Ano yon, nakakontrata na silang lahat? — for acting pa ha — so mga actors sila, not just normal Filipinos you can find on the street who would most likely have other talents and not just acting.
If I was Nene, I would take the money and leave. Bakit pa ako magpapagamit sa ABS-CBN? If she wanted, she can use her new found fame (and fortune) to raise awareness for social issues and help the public by being a role model — she can even get endorsements. She doesn’t need to entertain the people and be continually exploited. It’s the only logical thing for the winner to do — unless of course naka-kontrata na siya and she has no choice but to continue to become a talent of ABS-CBN.
It’s not really a contest if you are forced to work for the company which gave you the prize. (Pag nanalo ka ba ng sweepstakes kailangan mong magtrabo sa PCSO?) ABS-CBN needs to be more forthcoming. This is such a joke. If you won 6 million pesos you should be able to do what you want, including NOT work. If Nene is truly independent of ABS-CBN, she should entertain offers from other networks for her services, if she really wanted to get into showbiz/news. If not, ABS-CBN should clearly state that the winner of PBB has an obligation to work for ABS-CBN for a set number of time — that’s the “prize”, not “just 6 million”.
Over here, the American idol contestants (which are clearly in a talent/popularity contest) are already complaing about the 6-month “holding period” that the producers have on them. They cannot sign with any recording studio for at least 6 months after the show, if you did not win — which almost nullifies your chances of landing any contract because after 6-months you’re old news.
The 2 things wrong with Pinoy Big Brother is, it’s not even supposed to be a talent contest, and then the way they treat their “talents” is abusive. Ano na ang mangyayari pag hindi na kaya ni Franzen sumayaw sa ASAP? And what will ABS-CBN do kung ayaw talagang pumatok sa tao si Jenny? They are now stuck with a talent which is useless and dead weight.
Lumaban sa mga abusadong mga korporasyon! Ipaglaban ang karapatan ng manggagawang Pilipino! Ibagsak ang mga imperyalista! Makibaka! Huwag matakot! Mabuhay ang Iskolar ng Bayan! Jah! Wor! Skee! Jah! Wor! Skee!
But of course, I’m just a lowly blogger …
OMG – everybody hates Jeric “Ultimate Survivor” Rizalado. Hahaha. Poor Jeric. Nag-i-isang over-weight na nga siya, wala pa siyang kaibigan. May feud pa siya with Iwa — ay naku, not good.
Iwa Moto vs. Jeric Rizalado – Round 1
So what else do we know? Close sina Johan at Vaness. Close sina Bugz at Gian. Crush ni Bugz sina Jackie at Sara. Close sina Chuck at Jana (nag-a-i-love you na sila). Close si Vivo sa lahat. Crush ni Marky si Iwa. Crush ni Rea is Gian. Crush ni Gian si Iwa. Crush, well sobrang comfortable, si Iwa kay Gian. (Uy, Gian ha). Galit sina Rea at Iwa kay Vaness — now the second victim of iyakan-blues due to outside forces.
My brief history with Jimmy was kaklase ko ang brother niya sa grade school at high school. On one inspired Christmas season, I sang some songs on tape which Jimmy helped me record. Then I gave copies to my friends as gifts.
Pina-iyak na nila si Sara Larsson! Why so early naman Me-lani? Ihing-ihi na yung bata. And what was this episode? Philippines’ Next Top Model? This show has everything. Haha.
According Melanie Marquez and her fashion cohorts, the worst dressed were: Arci, Jana, Johann and Jeric. Best dressed were: Iwa, Rea, Bugz, Marky. Wow. Nagkakaintidihan kami ni Melanie!

Utang na loob Yasmien, maghanap ka na ng bagong stylist. Mukhang nanay mo pa yata ang nagdadamit sa yo. I have been suffering in silence for a very long time, but the fugliness has to end now. Ikaw pa naman ang aking favorite. I’m in pain everytime I see you dressed up like this. Sige na Yasmien, kahit si Chynna na lang ang tanungin mo for advice — mukhang may fashion sense ang girl na yon. Okay? Aabangan kita next week. Magpaganda ka iha.

Marky Cielo – near elimination with Chuck Allie
Okay that was tense. Ang puso ko! Bea and Jay-L, who ripped a mysterious object, got eliminated. I’m assuming that he really got hurt when they said: Sa dami-daming contests na nasalinan mo katulad nito, bakit hindi ka manalo-nalo? Aray. I thought for something as hurtful as that, they wouldn’t eliminate him for sure… but apparently these writers are take-no-prisoners cruel.
Actually I was a bit pissed that they chose Arci and Johan to go head to head with Bea and Jay-L as I was going — tama ako, tama ako — tapos hindi pala. Baka binasa ng producers ang blog and they did it to shock me. Haha. Feeling important.
Anyway… the Jolina song number before the big reveal needs to go. What for? Pang-inis? Probably why Jay-L ripped that mysterious object, kinantahan na siya ni Jolina — Breakway of all things — tapos hindi pa siya pasok. Haha.
Time to prepare the fan pages… give me a couple of days.
Update: Top 14 video clip
I think Chuck Allie was crying because he got in and Bea got eliminated (both from Davao). I think the whole emotional thing of it all got to him. Of course, kantahan ka ba naman ni Jolina ng Breakaway — who wouldn’t be emotional? Haha.
