MANILA - Green Archer Jeron Teng visited the "Pinoy Big Brother" (PBB) house during an episode aired Friday to celebrate the 18th birthday of celebrity housemate Jane Oineza.
The college basketball star, who was rumored to be a suitor of Oineza even before the reality show, was the last of the surprise visitors the show prepared for the actress.

Among the others who visited the famous yellow house for the occasion was Oineza's parents, former housemates Axel Torres and Nichole Baranda, and Kiray.
"Nakaka-flatter po na nakakatuwa. Parang mixed po lahat," a flushed Oineza told host "Kuya" afterwards.
The two shared a brief dance, before sitting down to talk. Both expressed their surprise at the announcement that Oineza was one of the housemates for the show's latest season.
"Wala na tuloy akong ka-BBM," quipped Teng, referring to a popular messaging application.
"Oo nga. I missed that," Oineza said in reply. "Paglabas, bawi bawi. Promise, babawi ako."
'Parang may something'
Meanwhile, teen housemate Joshua Garcia, who has been linked to Oineza for the past month, was noticeably silent throughout Teng's visit.
Asked if he was feeling a bit jealous, he first took the coy approach: "Hindi naman ako nanliligaw eh. Kung ano po 'yung desisyon ni Jane sa buhay niya, masaya po ako doon."
But he soon admitted to feeling slightly jealous, saying he felt forgotten by the actress.
"Hindi naman maiwasan kasi nakikita ko na parang titig na titig siya kay Jeron," he said. "Naramdam ko lang na biglang parang nawala ako sa bahay. Para ngang may something sila."
Teng reacts on social media
Teng, shortly after the show aired, posted on his Twitter account a rather vague message. The post read: "Oh kaya naman pala haha lol"
During his visit to the reality show, Teng was not told about the relationship brewing between Oineza and Garcia.
He was seemingly unaware of Garcia's feelings for the actress, showing no awkwardness towards the teen housemate.
Teng also posted a picture with Oineza on his Instagram account with the caption: "Again, good luck and fight til the big night @janeoineza ! I'll always be here to support you no matter what."
The message echoed what the basketball player told Oineza before he exited the PBB house.
Teng revealed that he has yet to go on a "typical date" with the Oineza, but admitted that they did attend a concert together.
