Nine months of grueling challenges and getting to know four different batches of housemates later, the Pinoy Big Brother Otso Ultimate Big Winner has finally been crowned! During the Big Night that was held in Cavite over the weekend, Yamyam Gucong the “Iskulit Bai ng Bohol” came out on top of the reality show.
“Sobrang saya ko sa journey na ‘yun doon sa loob ng bahay ni Kuya,” he described his experience. There is no question that it was a tough path to walk, but he is still thankful. Aside from the prizes, he found a new family and even met a spiritual brother. So, you can imagine how difficult it was for to nominate someone when the time came. “Kakabahan ka nang sobra,” he remembered the feeling. After all your time spent together under one roof, you are forced to choose someone who must leave, "Tapos pagpasok mo sa loob ng bahay makikita, makakausap mo ‘yung taong ni-nominate mo.”
At the end of the day, it was his family back in Bohol who inspired him to keep fighting and overcome each of Kuya’s challenges. This is why he chooses to dedicate his win to his loved ones. With the prize money, he plans to provide for their needs. Hopefully, he and his siblings will finally get to finish their studies.
Another item on Yamyam’s plans is to be part of a show for the Kapamilya network, specifically joining the cast of FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano. He would also love to act alongside his spiritual brother and fellow housemate Fumiya Sankai.
Whatever the future holds, Yamyam Gucong is sincerely thankful to all his fans, “Kayo po ‘yung nagbigay ng tibay para malagpasan ko ‘yung mga hamon sa loob ng bahay ni Kuya.”
