MANILA - Actress-TV host Alex Gonzaga, who has been vocal about her friendship with Fifth Pagotan, again visited the "Pinoy Big Brother" (PBB) house on Saturday to express support for her "best friend."

During the show's live telecast episode on Saturday, Gonzaga was given 100 seconds with the housemate, whom she had not seen since her last visit to the famous yellow house.

"Proud ako sa iyo Fifth. Excited ako para sa iyo," said Gonzaga. "Ang dami pang pwedeng mangyari sa iyo. Enjoy mo 'yung stay mo sa loob. See you. I love you."

In an earlier episode of the reality television program, Gonzaga singled out Fifth as her "male best friend" during her stay in the competition.

She noted that they had a certain connection, especially when it came to their sense of humor.

"Anong nangyari sa iyo?" quipped Gonzaga, referring to Fifth's sudden admission to being bisexual. To which he replied, in jest, "Ewan ko."

Last week, Fifth explained his sexual preference to host "Kuya."

"Ma-de-describe ko po ang sarili ko na kung iibig po ako, hindi ko po iisipin 'yung status ng buhay ng tao, 'yung itsura ng tao, o 'yung sekswalidad ng tao," he said.

Fifth's coming out was welcomed by celebrities such as Gonzaga, who said that she accepts the housemate regardless of gender or sexual preference.

Comedians Vice Ganda and Ryan Bang also tweeted their support for the housemate.
