PBB welcomes 'double lovers'

Posted at 10/12/09 5:55 PM

MANILA - "Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) Double Up" on Saturday opened its door to new sets of housemates.

In a pre-Halloween party, Kuya welcomed Filipino Austrian Rod Stumvol, champion target shooter Steve Jumalon, banker Patrick Villanueva, medical representative Riza Mae Patria, restaurant server Johan Santos, nurse Cathy Remperas, US balikbayan Hermes Bautista, Jimson Ortega and his Spain-raised wife Kathleen Lopeña, and transvestite Rica Paras.

After they entered what is considered to be the most popular house in the land, Kuya summoned Rod, Patrick, Jimson, Kathleen, and Rica to the confession room to reveal their first task.

Rod and Rica must convince the other housemates that they have been dating for a long time. Meanwhile, Jimson must give way and let his wife Kathleen pretend to be Patrick’s better half.

Kathleen and Patrick have been assigned to House B.  Fake lovers Rob and Rica, meanwhile, have been sent to House A.

Success in this task means the house where they are assigned will win 100% additional budget by the end of the week. However, failure might mean that they will have to suffer the same fate as evicted housemates JM Lagumbay and twins Kenny and Toffi Santos.

Will they be able to put a convincing act? Find out on Pinoy Big Brother Double Up weeknights after “Dahil May Isang Ikaw.” Log on to http://pinoybigbrother.multiply.com for more updates and exclusives, or text BBNEWS ON to 2366. -With a report from Napoleon Quintos, ABS-CBN.com
