MANILA - "Pinoy Big Brother" contestant Fifth Pagotan drew laughs online with his emotional outburst over a task involving snakes, among other animals, in the episode of the reality show aired on Tuesday.
The 22-year-old commercial model, along with the seven other remaining housemates, went through an obstacle course which had them counting guinea pigs, worms, frogs, and snakes.
The task was to count and say the total number of all the animals, which, if correct, will be counted as a point to possibly save a housemate of their choice from getting nominated for eviction.
Fifth, who chose to save his close friend Manolo Pedrosa, was the first to enter the challenge room.
He was visibly shocked when he unveiled each of the aquariums containing the animals, and became increasingly frantic when he saw the snakes.
Fifth counted 101 animals, but the correct answer was 99.
By the end of the challenge, four housemates remained in the list of nominees -- Fifth, Manolo, Jane Oineza, and Joshua Garcia.
As Fifth's turn in the challenge room aired, "Pinoy Big Brother" viewers took to Twitter to share their amusement, making "Fifth xD" among the top trending topics on the micro-blogging site locally.
The episode's official "#PBBLigtask" and "Jusmiyo Marimar," an expression used by housemate Daniel Matsunaga, also ranked among the most talked-about topics on Twitter.
"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.
