Former Pinoy Big Brother Otso housemate Fumiya Sankai brought fun and laughter as he returned on the TWBA Hot Seat. He talked about his successful medical operation last December and his opportunity to work in a teleserye topbilled by LizQuen. Tito Boy also asked a netizen’s question about his friendship with Yamyam. “Bakit hindi ko na kayo nakikitang magkasama ni Yamyam? Friends pa ba kayo?”, a netizen asked.
Fumiya clarifies that he and Yamyam Gucong remain best friends. They were in constant communication even while he was in Japan to undergo the lung surgery. And he bought Yamyam a pair of shoes for his birthday last December.

The friendship of Fumiya and Yamyam started when they became housemates in PBB Otso (2019). As early as day one, it was clear that Fumiya Sankai and Yamyam Gucong would make a great tandem. They were often a source of laughter for both the housemates and the viewers as they tried to express their thoughts to each other. But more than the comic relief their conversations brought, their actions spoke louder about how solid their friendship is.

One of the most heartwarming moments on the show was when Yamyam chose Fumiya over his lucky jacket. “Inisip ko lang po ‘yung una kaming nagkita, mas importante pa po ‘yun para sa akin, Kuya,” he explained in the confession room. There was also the time when Yamyam was evicted. Even though it was not for good, seeing him hug Fumiya goodbye got everyone emotional.
