This is the January 12, 2021 (Tuesday) edition of Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) Connect, the ninth main and fifteenth overall season of the said reality show, which premiered on December 6, 2020, on both A2Z Channel 11 and Kapamilya Channel. The show is also simulcast and digitally streamed via ABS-CBN’s entertainment website, iWantTFC (on-demand streaming service), and Kapamilya Channel’s Kapamilya Online Live on Facebook and YouTube. Live feeds of the House are also being shown on Kumu, an online streaming platform.
In this episode, Andrea and Ralph, directors of the short film weekly task were given the opportunity to talk to former-PBB housemate Fifth Solomon, who aside from portraying roles in TV soaps is now directing films and video advertisements as well.
However, knowing how things work in the PBB house, the duration of their consultation with Fifth depends on how long the actors or the rest of the housemates will hang on an elevated beam.
If they step on the ground, Fifth’s answers will be interrupted ergo the answer to Andrea and Ralph’s inquiries — regarding all things they must consider in shooting, directing, scriptwriting, props making, among others — will be cut short as well.
For this week’s Head of Household (HOH) game, whereas the immunity of two housemates is at stake, the housemates were asked to watch a clip from Star Cinema’s Four Sisters and a Wedding. After that, five questions were flashed on the monitor seeking objects as the answer: sunglasses, black slippers, black eyeglasses, pants, and white towel. These objects were worn by the lead characters in the said movie.
To answer the questions, the housemates are tasked to hook an object placed on a long table, few meters apart from them, via a boom microphone.
Andrea, who was earlier given a headstart for gaining the most number of diamonds in a recent Kumu Padaluck, a twist where the viewers are given the power to give an advantage to one of the nominees for the Ligtask Challenge or HOH game. Unlike the other housemates, Andrea just needs to answer three questions.
With her advantage, Andrea garnered the fastest time. Liofer came in at the second spot, hence awarded the second immunity reward.
Right after the HOH game, the dreaded 4th nomination was conducted and the housemates nominated Aizyl, Crismar, Ella, and Alyssa as the 4th batch of nominees, whereas one of them will be booted out from the Big Brother house this Sunday (January 17, 2021).
Here are their respective reasons for nominating Aizyl, Crismar, Ella, and Alyssa.
To save your bets, here are the mechanics to vote:
PBB Connect is the fifth consecutive time that both civilian adults and teenagers participated in one season, and the first time since the All In season to house them together as just one batch.
Toni Gonzaga, Bianca Gonzales, and Robi Domingo reprised their roles as hosts.
New digital hosts joined the show. Richard Juan is the host for the show’s online updates, while Enchong Dee and Melai Cantiveros are the hosts for the show’s online companion programs across various online platforms.
Kim Chiu, Edward Barber, and Maymay Entrata were earlier reported to host online content for the program, with Chiu and Entrata joining the official launch, but were never seen doing their hosting stints in the succeeding events of the show.
Dee and Cantiveros, on the other hand, were occasionally seen online, but most of the online hosting was done by Gonzales and Domingo.
The show airs daily, Mondays to Fridays at 10:00 P.M. after “Walang Hanggang Paalam,” Saturdays at 10:00 P.M. after “Maalaala Mo Kaya,” and Sundays at 8:30 P.M. after “I Can See Your Voice.”
