Pinoy Big Brother may be hailing Big Winners every season, but all of its housemates are truly winners in life. They took the risk of joining the widely loved reality show and used it as a stepping-stone to achieve their dreams.
After their stint, most of them pursued the world of showbiz and amazingly became talented celebrities who are recognized by many. Just from the male roster, a number of them are now prominent stars!
Check out this Kapamilya gallery to get to know more about some former PBB housemates who are stellar actors today.
Can you still remember that Sam was part of the first-ever PBB season way back in 2005? He wasn’t originally selected for the season and only entered as a replacement for a housemate who voluntarily exited because of personal reasons. Regardless, he was able to make his name known to the world through that opportunity.
Although he got evicted, countless projects awaited him in the outside world. He is now a multi-awarded actor and shines in different bida and kontrabida roles, which we were able to witness in his performances on Halik and Ang Sa Iyo Ay Akin. Sam is expected to appear next in the highly anticipated drama A Family Affair.
One of this generation’s ultimate crushes is Joshua Garcia. When he entered PBB All In, he was just a simple teenage boy that wanted to help his family financially. While many rooted for him, he wasn’t able to reach the finals during his season.
However, that didn’t stop Joshua from achieving his dreams to make it big in the entertainment industry. He attended workshops and trained hard until he was able to land major roles such as those in Nasaan Ka Nang Kailangan Kita, The Greatest Love, The Good Son, Ngayon at Kailanman, The Killer Bride, and Viral Scandal. He is next set to be the lead star on the highly anticipated series Darna.
Seth is one of the rising young male stars today, and his journey all began in PBB Otso. His inspirational story and fiery tenacity propelled him far into the PBB rankings. Although he was unable to claim a spot in the Big Four, people already recognized the talent he had.
After leaving PBB, Seth was more than ready to start a career in acting. His big break was a role in the afternoon drama Kadenang Ginto. This was followed by a minor role in FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano. Today, he continues to strive with appearances on Huwag Kang Mangamba and in the upcoming series Dirty Linen.
Yves already considered it a big accomplishment to be chosen as a housemate on PBB Teen Edition 4, but that didn’t mean he would stop there. Every day, in the PBB house, he was determined to succeed. Although he wasn’t able to make it to the end, he knew he had the talent to thrive in the outside world.
He began with roles in Got To Believe, Forevermore, Be My Lady, and Hanggang Saan. As he gained experience and skills, he landed bigger parts, such as those in A Soldier’s Heart, Bagong Umaga and 2 Good 2 Be True.
We first met Kapamilya cutie Jameson Blake as a regular housemate on PBB 737. After his stint on the show, he had a knack for dancing and was invited to join the It’s Showtime all-male dance group Hashtags.
While he gained traction with his dancing, Jameson also pursued acting opportunities to hone his skill in that artistry. He appeared on My Dear Heart, A Love to Last, Ngayon at Kailanman, and Viral Scandal. His latest project is a starring tole in the upcoming series A Family Affair.
Aljon was only part of PBB Otso for a while, but he was still able to make a mark on viewers. As he pursued acting opportunities, many recognized his talent for it. He started off with minor appearances such as his stint on Sandugo, but eventually worked his way into landing major projects such as his starring role on the iWantTFC original series Hoy, Love You and Viral Scandal.
