Jyo decides to voluntarily exit PBB house through coin flipping

On the September 2 episode of PBB 737, Big Brother asked Jyo if he still wants to stay inside the PBB house. “Kuya, mahirap ‘yan. 50-50 rin, Kuya eh. 50 na manatili ay ang dahilan ko kasi, Kuya kasi naumpisahan, nandito na rin ako sa weekly task, Kuya. Nandito na rin ako parang nafi-feel ko ‘yung responsibility na as a team, dapat nandoon ako. And ‘yung sa isa naman (50), Kuya is sinabi rin naman ni Richard na parang namimiss ko daw lang ang sarili ko. Oo nga, namimiss ko ‘yung sarili ko noong nasa labas ako, Kuya.”

In a conversation with PBB’s resident psychologist Dr. Randy Dellosa, he said that it is important for Jyo to have a sense of purpose which is to make people laugh. “Kaya lang dahil may mga comedians sa loob ng bahay like si Roger parang nawala ‘yung purpose niyang ganoon,” he said.

Meanwhile, Jyo also admitted that he did things inside the house that he was only forced to do. In line with this, the doctor said, “Sanay si Jyo na ginagawa lang ‘yung gusto niya eh dahil may mga tasks sa loob ng bahay just force to do what he needs to do takes out the enjoyment of staying there.”

Big Brother then asked Jyo if he wants to be a housemate until the end to which he replied, “Hanggang dulo? Hirap ng tanong, Kuya, level 100.” He then suggested flipping a coin and admitted that he also did that before auditioning for Pinoy Big Brother. He said that he did it so he won’t have to think about it anymore, “Para mas madaling makapagdesisyon, nagflip ako ng coin, Kuya.”

Interpreting this ‘flipping of coin’ action of Jyo, Dr. Dellosa said, “You know I think that’s part of ‘yung pag-uugali niya which comes from the ADHD or ‘yung Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. Dahil isa sa mga symptoms ng ADHD is ‘yung pagiging impulsive.”

Jyo told Big Brother that he started flipping coins in making small decisions such as what to eat in a restaurant, “Nag-umpisa ako sa mga small decisions, Kuya. Kapag nasa restaurant ako, Kuya, kapag nalilito ako sa menus, kung ano ang pipiliin ko, doon ako natutong mag-umpisang magflip ng coin, Kuya.”

Until he tried flipping coins to make big life decisions, “Hanggang sa dumating ang pagfi-flip ko ng coin sa mga malalaking decision. Tinry ko ‘yun once, ito yun, Kuya, kaya pagkapasok ko ng PBB, nalilito rin ako, Kuya today kung lalabas ba ako, voluntary exit ba ako o hindi.”

Although Big Brother did not believe in flipping coins to make decisions, he allowed Jyo to do it. Jyo said that if the coin showed its head after flipping, he will voluntarily exit but if it showed its tail, he will stay.



He then flipped the coin and as a result, showed its head which means that he will voluntarily exit.

When Big Brother asked Jyo about what he feels about the result, Jyo said that he is partly happy and partly sad; happy because he won’t have to think about it anymore and sad because he knows viewers will not agree with how he made his decision.
 
Big Brother asked him if he will entrust his future in the coin and voluntarily exit and Jyo answered yes.

Although Big Brother is not happy with his decision, he respected it, “Hangad ko na ‘pag tumanda ka na ay mas pagtitiwalaan mo ang iyong sarili na hindi mo na kakailanganin ang anumang barya dahil Jyo, kailangan pag-isipan ang mga mahahalagang bagay. Ito ay marka ng isang responsableng tao. Hangad ko talaga na dumating sa punto ng buhay mo na hindi ka na gagamit ng ganitong paraan sa pagdesisyon.”
