After making it to the The Dream Team of “Pinoy Big Brother: Lucky Season 7”, Edward Barber, the “Cheerful Charmer of Germany”, is now part of Kuya’s Lucky 7 and he will have the chance to become this season’s Ultimate Big Winner. Today, let us look back at some of the highlights of his “Pinoy Big Brother” journey.
Edward, 16 years old, was one of this season’s teen housemates who entered the “Pinoy Big Brother” house last August 6, 2016. The half-British and half-Filipino teen housemate looked forward to get to know himself more inside the house.
When the male teen housemates had a very short date with Liza Soberano, Edward stood out and made a mark when he blurted “I love you” to his ultimate celebrity crush. He also shared that after watching Liza and her on-screen partner Enrique Gil perform at Germany, he was inspired to go to the Philippines and audition for “Pinoy Big Brother”.
Edward became one of the three Lucky Suns after he won the Big Jump Challenge. His sister Laura, who continued to cheer for him, inspired him to do his best and in the end, he defeated two other housemates, Christian Morones and Yong Muhajil, in an electric maze challenge that lasted for hours.
Inside the house, Edward and Maymay Entrata became a loveteam after they were teased by the other teen housemates. Maymay noticed his similarities with her celebrity crush, Enrique Gil. Since then, they had several kilig moments together and one of their most romantic moments was the recording of Edward’s original composition for Maymay, “Baliw”.
Even though he’s a joker inside the house, Edward wasn’t afraid to show his emotional side whenever he talked about his family. While talking to Kuya, he cried inside the confession room after hearing the heartwarming message of his mother. He also became emotional when he was also reunited with his father and his sister after being away from them for a very long time.
For one of their lucky tasks, the Dream Team housemates had to create a live drama performance. Edward impressed the multi-awarded film and TV director Rory Quintos when he gave a heartfelt audition. Even though he had a hard time delivering the straight Filipino lines from the Kapamilya primetime series “Pangako Sa ‘Yo”, he impressed Direk Rory with his sincerity after he opened with his short-lived romance with former teen housemate, Heaven Peralejo.
Will Edward be this season’s Ultimate Big Winner?
