MANILA -- DJ Chacha Balba is the first housemate to leave the "Pinoy Big Brother" house in Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam.
In an episode aired Sunday, Chacha, 28, told "Kuya" that she will volunteer to leave the house because she misses her family, especially her child.
"Kuya, nami-miss ko po 'yung anak ko. 'Yun lang po. Iniisip ko rin po 'yung trabaho ko outside kasi ako po 'yung nagpapalaki mag-isa sa bata so I can't really lose my job," she said.
Chacha's decision saved Brazilian-Japanese model Hideo Muraoka, who gave the poorest performance in the "Ligtask" Challenge.
Muraoka spent more than 15 minutes in performing the challenge, which involved eating exotic Vietnamese food.
Model Jinri Park, on the other hand, finished the eating challenge in just a little more than a minute.
This week's other nominees, JK Labajo and Yassi Pressman, were also saved from eviction.
Unlike previous editions of the reality show, viewers were not given a chance to save their favorite housemates.
