Daniel joins Manolo in secret room
MANILA - After spending a day alone in a secret room, "Pinoy Big Brother" housemate Manolo Pedrosa was surprised by a visit from evicted contestant Nicole Baranda, who he has referred to as someone special.
In the episode of the reality show that aired Tuesday, Nichole, who exited the yellow house last June 29, brought Manolo a meal inside the isolated area and was given 100 seconds to catch up with the 16-year-old.
At first speechless, Manolo hugged Nicole and thanked her for visiting him.
In the confession room, Manolo admitted that Nichole's visit helped considerably in uplifting him, following the emotionally taxing "eviction" process he had undergone with the remaining housemates.
Manolo, along with Daniel Matsunaga, had been voted by the other contestants for eviction. However, in truth, the two were only nominated for eviction and were made to stay in the secret room temporarily, pending the actual elimination by public votes.
The remaining five contestants, meantime, were led to believe that Manolo and Daniel had actually exited the "Pinoy Big Brother" house.
Another housemate will join the two as nominees, depending on the results of a challenge to be shown in the episode on Wednesday.
"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.
