MANILA - Actor Jason Abalos turned emotional in the episode of "Pinoy Big Brother" that aired on Thursday when he got to visit his girlfriend, housemate Vickie Rushton, after more than a month apart.
Jason, who recently starred in ABS-CBN's "Maria Mercedes," was tapped by Big Brother to deliver a letter to Vickie from her estranged father, Eric, who also visited the 21-year-old later in the episode.
The separate visits to Vickie happened during the housemate's weekly task -- to stay perfectly still at specified moments, with only three chances for error throughout the week.
While Vickie managed to stay still despite seeing Jason for the first time, she ultimately committed the first task error when she hugged the actor as he turned emotional over the reunion.
In the confession room, Jason also broke down in tears over Vickie's estrangement from her father, which he said has been a baggage for Vickie for the most part of her life.
"Pinoy Big Brother: All In" airs weeknights on Primetime Bida, and on Saturdays and Sundays as part of ABS-CBN's Yes! Weekend line-up. Afternoon updates are also aired via "Uber" on weekdays.
