A few hours after having their bonding time through a boodle fight and simple swimming party, the teen housemates of Pinoy Big Brother: Otso sadly had to bid farewell to one of their fellows on the fourth nomination and eviction night held last Sunday, December 9.
Raking in the least percentage of public votes, or 22.13%, was Aljon Mendoza, leading him out of the house as the latest evictee. His three co-nominees Karina Bautista, Kaori Oinuma, and Jelay Pilones defeated him by respectively garnering 24.31%, 30.15%, and 23.41% of the total text votes from their supporters and the viewers alike.
The one-by-one announcement of Toni Gonzaga of the saved housemates was indeed an emotional moment for the aforementioned teens. Aside from the fact that they’re among the pioneers of this season, they’ve also formed a strong bond, especially the highly controversial Aljon and Karina who apparently found it hard to let go of one another as they held each other’s hand so tight.
And when the latter was declared as the last nominee to be saved, Karina whined and requested for Kuya to give her a few seconds more to embrace the dude she considers as her best friend inside the house before walking out of the confession room. The “Shy Charmer of Pampanga” was welcomed back to the outside world by his supportive mom Judith.
While he reached the end of his stint, Aljon’s exit opened the door for Star Dreamer Reign Parani to crossover from Camp Star Hunt, where she stayed for two weeks, to the PBB house as its newest official housemate. She bested her groupmates who dominated this week’s lantern-making – Kurt Herona, Sansan Dagumampan, and Gian Wang – after amassing the most number of votes amounting to 35.72%. Meanwhile, the three other Star Dreamers received 31.35%, 20.01%, and 12.91% respectively.
The “Sporteen Sweetheart ng Canada” was replaced by the 16-year-old “Beauty and the Best Ate ng Albay” Lienel Navidad.
Can Reign easily adjust as the newest addition to the Housemates ni Kuya? How will Lienel fare on her first week on the Camp Star Hunt?
