Samantha Bernardo replaces Alyssa Valdez as PBB Kumunity Celebrity Top 2

Big Brother thrilled ‘PBB’ viewers with one surprise announcement after another, including the news that the face off of the Top 2 housemates of the Celebrity, Adult, and Teen edition will start this May 15 in “PBB Kumunity Season 10.”

As teen housemates Eslam El Gohari and Luke Alford made their exit after the double eviction over the weekend, remaining teen housemates Dustine Mayores, Gabb Skribikin, Maxine Trinidad, Paolo Alcantara, Rob Blackburn, Stephanie Jordan, and Tiff Ronato have to make big decisions that will affect their stay inside the ‘PBB’ house. Five out of the seven will be part of the Final 5 that will fight for the Top 2 spots, while two of the teen housemates will bid goodbye in the Teen Edition’s last two weeks.

The outside world was also surprised with Big Brother’s announcement that Samantha Bernardo will replace Alyssa Valdez as the celebrity Top 2 because Alyssa, a national volleyball team player, will represent the country in the Southeast Asian (SEA) Games. The SEA Games schedule might coincide with the entry of the top 2 housemates of each edition of “PBB Kumunity.”

Alyssa explained, “dito po sa labas ng inyong bahay mayroon pong mga commitment na kailangan din po akong gampanan para po sa ating bansa. Magpe-prepare naman po ang national team para po sa nalalapit na SEA Games. Sa Vietnam po ito gaganapin and hindi ko rin po masasabi sa kung kalian matatapos kaya naman po hindi ko po magagampanan at hindi po ako makakabalik sa loob ng inyong bahay.”

Meanwhile, Samantha turned emotional after hearing the news. The “Bread-Queener ng Palawan” said, “Knowing me, hindi ako sumusuko sa anumang pagsubok ng hamon ng buhay. I am not a quitter, I will always say na ok lang sa akin na matalo ako as long as I fight until the end. Tinatanggap ko po ‘yun at isang malaking karangalan na ako ang kapalit ni sizzy (Alyssa) at laban natin ‘to sissy.”
