MANILA – “Pinoy Big Brother” host Toni Gonzaga hopes her sister Alex will learn important lessons during her stay inside the famous yellow house.
Alex, who was initially presented to the media as one of the hosts for "Pinoy Big Brother All In," turned out to be the surprise housemate during the pilot episode of the reality show's latest season last Sunday.
In an interview with ABS-CBN entertainment site Push, Toni said she will terribly miss her sister.
“Parang mami-miss ko siya sa bahay kasi wala na akong makakausap sa gabi. Kasi ang room namin connected so pagkauwian derecho siya sa room ko tapos kinukwento niya ‘yung nangyari the whole day. So ‘yun wala na akong kausap,” she relayed.
As soon as Alex entered the "PBB" house, Kuya immediately called Alex to the confession room to have a word with her. 'Kuya' explained that Alex needs to experience being a housemate to be an effective host.
Agreeing with Kuya, Toni said, “Kasi kaming lahat naging housemates (Bianca Gonzalez, John Prats, Robi Domingo). Ang dami naming na-discover sa sarili namin that helped us a lot, not just as hosts of the program, ‘yung ano mas naging mabuting tao.”
Asked if there is something she would like to tell Alex, Toni said, “Kasi si Alex, lahat sa kanya biro. ‘Yung mga teacher niya, binibiro niya. 'Pag pinapagalitan siya ni mommy and daddy, binibiro niya. Kanina pinapagalitan ko siya puro biro. She doesn’t take things seriously in life so I think dito kahit papano sumeryoso siya sa ilang bahagi ng buhay niya.”
Aside from Alex, the other housemates of “PBB” are Axel Torres, Jane Oineza, Cess Visitacion, Kevin Cecilio, Nichole Baranda, Aina Solano, Joshua Garcia, Jayme Jalandoni, Manolo Pedrosa, Maris Racal, Ranty Fortento, Michelle Gumabao, Jacob Benedicto, Loisa Andalio, Fourth and Fifth Solomon and Vickie Rushton.
