'PBB': Emotions run high over Fourth's eviction

MANILA - In one of the most emotional moments on "Pinoy Big Brother" this season, housemates appeared anguished over the eviction of Fourth Pagotan, who stayed for 85 days inside the famous yellow house.

Fourth, a 22-year-old chef from Pasay, was the 11th to be evicted from the reality show since its April 27 premiere. He got the least number of votes among fellow nominees Vickie Rushton, Loisa Andalio, and twin brother Fifth, leading to his exit last Sunday.

Only 8 housemates remain, including Daniel Matsunaga, Joshua Garcia, Jane Oineza, Maris Racal, and Manolo Pedrosa.

In the episode of "Pinoy Big Brother" aired on Monday, the reactions of the housemates to Fourth's eviction was shown. While initially speechless over the announcement, several of them broke down in tears as Fourth made his way to the confession room.

Manolo, who formed a group with Fifth and Fourth they have dubbed "Team YOLO," appeared to distance himself but was visibly emotional.

Loisa, who considers Fourth an older brother, cried aloud and even screamed when Fourth closed the door to the confession room. Similarly, Fifth was inconsolable as he lay beside the door sobbing.

In the week before Fourth's eviction, he and Fifth openly talked about the latter's sexual orientation -- a matter they had never discussed before they entered the "Pinoy Big Brother" house.

"Pinoy Big Brother: All In" airs weeknights on Primetime Bida, and on Saturdays and Sundays as part of ABS-CBN's Yes! Weekend line-up. Afternoon updates are also aired via "Uber" on weekdays.
