Comedienne Chariz shows support for brother Fifth
MANILA - Comedienne Chariz Solomon expressed her support for her brother, "Pinoy Big Brother: All In" housemate Fifth Pagotan, who recently confessed that he is bisexual.
On Instagram, Solomon posted a photo of her twin brothers, Fourth and Fifth, saying that their family will always be there for them.
The comedienne also hit back at critics, saying that nobody judges Fifth in their home.
"Ah basta kami nila jiro, KC, mama, seira, daddy, apollo, nestor zel and ng family love na love na love namin kayo :) at mas masaya ang bahay natin kesa sa bahay nila :) sa bahay natin walang manghuhusga sa inyo! Mahal na mahal namin kayong dalawa," Solomon wrote.
Fifth's "bisexual" confession in the PBB house trended worldwide on Wednesday.
He made the confession after he got bothered by an anonymous comment about the sexuality of one housemate, which was read to them earlier in the episode by host Robi Domingo.
Fifth said he is used to getting comments about his sexuality, and shared that he was teased a lot as a kid that he is gay.
The conversation about his sexuality, as seen in the preview of the July 17 episode, triggered Fifth to clarify the issue with Big Brother -- a decision he consulted with his twin brother, Fourth.
Fifth also openly admitted his sexual preference to Manolo, saying he is bisexual. He expressed concern, however, about how people would react to his being open about his sexuality.
In the confession room, an emotional Fourth was asked by Big Brother whether he accepts his brother's sexuality.
