MANILA - Brazilian-Japanese model Daniel Matsunaga said winning the reality show "Pinoy Big Brother: All In" is so far the best moment of his life.
In an Instagram post after exiting the popular big yellow house, Matsunaga expressed his appreciation to all those who supported his "PBB" stint.
Saying that the experience made him "a better man," the model believes that God "has great plans for each of us here on earth."
He went on to say that he will stay in the Philippines and will do his best to make Filipinos proud of him.
In the photo's caption, Matsunaga wrote, unedited: "This was the best moment in my life!!after everything that happened inside the pbb house,all the difficult tasks,all the rules we had to follow, all those moments that i thought i wouldnt make it, times that i was thinking of giving up..no words can describe what I felt and experienced there! tears that I hid from everybody. This made me a better man today...all that because of the love and support of each of you. Pbb was the best experience of my life so far...There were so many things that I learned and things that I never thought I could do. God really had a purpose to put me there and I really hope I was able to inspire some of you out there. He has great plans for each of us here on earth.
"Faith and trust in God is all that you need ...look for strength in him and he will provide you with everything that you will need...I was only able to get my phone yesterday night and today is my chance to post my 1st post since i entered the house. I wanted to make sure to share my mind and heart in full so i decided to write to everyone before I go to sleep. Sorry for making you wait but I wanted the best possible message coming from me. My life changed right there and I will always be thankfull for all the love!maraming maraming salamat sa inyong lahat for all the votes and the support!!
"My sister @vanessamatsunaga is correct in saying we were never able to choose where we were born but yes we can choose where we belong and I choose to belong here in the Philippines... where my dreams came true. I will make you all proud. Thank you. God bless. Honor God."
Matsunaga was named the Big Winner of "PBB" last Sunday.
