PBB names first housemates up for elimination
MANILA - The hit reality television series "Pinoy Big Brother: All In" has named the first set of housemates that are in danger of elimination in a live episode on Saturday night.
Chevin Klein Cecilio, dubbed as the "Simpatikong Salesman ng CamSur," was the first one to be nominated as he garnered a majority 18 points from his fellow housemates and 22.76 percent of the total votes from home viewers.
"Pag may task, parang magagalitin po siya," explained Joshua Garcia, a fellow housemate, of his decision to allot his two points to Cecilio.
Maris Racal, also known as the "Singing Sunshine ng Davao," was the next housemate to be revealed on the list through standard voting.
Racal managed to receive seven points from her fellow housemates, with the majority noting her clumsiness with some of the competition's tasks.
"Ang baby pa niya tapos yung mga personal things niya, naiiwan niya kung saan saan, pakalat-kalat," said Bacolod-based model and contestant Vickie Rushton.
The last one to be announced was Loisa Andalio, the "Talented Darling from Pasay City," as she garnered 25.08 percent of the total votes through the newly launched Vote To Nominate -- a first for the competition.
Andalio only got 2 points from her fellow housemates.
"Sana ivote niyo po ako para maipakita ko pa po kung ano po talaga ako sa iba kong housemates," Andalio said when asked to give her message to the show's viewers.
"Sa family ko and sa mga friends, boto niyo po ulit ako. Gusto ko pa po talaga mag-stay dito sa bahay ni Kuya para matupad ang pangarap ko," added Cecilio, which Racal echoed.
"Sana po iboto niyo ako para machieve ko po yung dream ko," she said.
Moments after the episode aired, the show dominated online conversations as the show's official hashtag topped worldwide trends on the micro-blogging site, Twitter.
Other terms such as "Why Maris" and "Loisa Papansin" were also among the worldwide trends.
