“Grabe. Gusto ko lang magpasalamat sa lahat lahat ng sumuporta sa akin dito,” the newly-minted Big Winner said, who also shared during the Big Night that the first thing he would if he wins is to help his mother.
Liofer won a house and lot from Phirst Park Homes and P1 million from Brilliant Skin Essentials. Andrea Abaya, Kobie Brown, and Jie-Ann Armero will also take home P500,000, P300,000, and P200,000, respectively.
