There was a festive mood outside the "Pinoy Big Brother" house on Saturday as the show once again welcomed back the grand finalists of this season's celebrity and teen editions. 

In pairs, Jinri Park and Maymay Entrata, Edward Barber and Hashtags Mccoy de Leon and Nikko Natividad, Nonong Ballinan and Kisses Delavin re-entered the "PBB" house and found themselves inside familiar walls. 

There, they joined adult finalists Tanner Mata, Aura Azarcon, and Jerome Alcere for the show's last phase. 

Three others, to be picked from the already eliminated housemates by Big Brother himself, are expected to follow suit in the coming episodes. And after doing so, the show will then explain how it will exactly determine its Big Winner or winners for this year. 

Meanwhile, host Toni Gonzaga, who had to take a leave from the show as she gave birth to her first son with husband Paul Soriano, also made her comeback. Asked if being a mother changed her, she said: "Parang life has a whole new meaning. Kaya pala ako nabuhay eh dahil mayroon akong buhay na iluluwal."
