Exactly a week after Lou Yanong marked her 22nd birthday inside the house, another Pinoy Big Brother Otso adult housemate turned a year older and celebrated it too with his comrades – Fumiya Sankai. And this happened a day after he volunteered himself to be automatically nominated to help his beloved best friend Yamyam Gucong achieve his dreams.
PBB Otso Day 73: Fumiya, nakatanggap ng mensahe mula sa kanyang pamilya
The eve of Fumiya’s birthday might have ended in an intense and gloomy note, but it began in a delightful way as the guy housemates enthusiastically sang him a birthday song. He might have wished for a cake, but what Kuya gave him was a lot sweeter as Kuya delivered the amusing video greetings recorded by his father and two younger brothers right on the screen found in the living room.

Of course, Big Brother didn’t let his housemate’s special day end by not greeting and bantering with him. He also quizzed him regarding his family and their unmistakably strong bond, to which the Konichi-Wonder Vlogger of Japan divulged that they’re not very much expressive with their affection but they are so appreciative of one another.
PBB Otso Day 73: Yamyam, tinanggap ang hamon para kay Fumiya
Since Yamyam is his Pogi Spiritual Brother, Kuya tapped him to spearhead the special task he gave them in exchange for the huge surprise he had for Fumiya – the unexpected arrival of his family. While the celebrator was out of earshot, the Iskulit Bai of Bohol discretely converged the other housemates to relay what Kuya told him and gave them a few instructions about their task.
He did the same to his best friend, but pretended that this special challenge should remain a secret between them.

Unbeknownst to Fumiya, his father Akio and his younger brothers Shunya and Yuya were already in the confession room and chatting with Kuya. Big Brother asked them how they traditionally celebrate his birthday and how Fumiya is as a family member, to which they enthusiastically responded.

Afterwards, Big Brother summoned Yamyam and Japanese-speaking Andre Brouillette to meet the Sankai Family in the secret room, wherein they were able to talk about Fumiya and, perhaps, to brief them as well on what they have to do as soon as the challenge was over.

Dressed as white ninjas, the housemates took on the White Ninja Task that required them to transfer 24 styro sticks from one point to another by passing through a makeshift bridge hanging on the pool. To make it extra challenging, Kuya hired three house challengers, who were clad in black ninja costumes, to disturb them as they crossed. Yamyam was the only one allowed to enter the activity area and hoist the sticks atop a giant curtain cake and served as the starter for the challenge. He was then succeeded by Fumiya.

Fumiya’s other two close friends and fellow original housemates Andre and Lou were the third and fourth ones to try it, respectively. Camille Sandel, Shawntel Cruz, Thea Rizaldo, and Kim Franco came next.
When they reached the ninth stick, Kuya announced that from that moment, Yamyam would be the only white ninja to finish the game up to the last stick.

As soon as Yamyam hoisted the final stick atop the giant curtain cake, he immediately invited Fumiya to join him in the activity area wherein he revealed that the task was really for him. The celebrator wasn’t able to contain his disbelief and excitement when his two otoutosan (younger brother) emerged from the curtains while clasping number balloons “2” and “4”. Fumiya then went more ecstatic at the sight of their father holding a posh cake on his hand.
