MANILA - (UPDATED) Maymay Entrata was proclaimed the Big Winner of "Pinoy Big Brother: Lucky 7" at the grand finals night held in Biñan, Laguna Sunday. 

The 19-year-old who was dubbed the "Wacky-go-lucky ng Cagayan de Oro" on the show garnered a whopping 42.71 percent of the total number of public votes.

Entrata, who was chosen by the celebrity housemates to be one of the official teen housemates this season, immediately captured the hearts of many with her natural charm and humor. During her stay, she shared her pains of not having a father while growing up.

Despite her fun and cheerful character, Entrata also showed her emotional side whenever the topic of family comes up.

"Maraming salamat dahil pinili niyong maging bahagi kayo sa pangarap ko at natupad ang mga ito. Gusto ko lang sabihin sa inyo na huwag na huwag kayong matakot mangarap," she said after her win.

Meanwhile, Kisses Delavin finished in second place after receiving 31.27 percent of the total number of public votes. She won P500,000.

Inside the house, Delavin is known for her cute and charming personality, which made it easy for her to be close to her housemates. 

However, Delavin was also firm in achieving her goal in joining "PBB," which is to be independent and to learn to stand on her own.

Delavin had her fair share of heartbreaks inside the house, especially when she admitted her feelings for fellow housemate Marco Gallo.

"Huwag kayong susuko sa inyong mga pangarap. Patuloy kayong magpakatotoo, magmahal nang magmahal, maniwala sa inyong sarili, at magkaroon nang walang sawang pagmamahal sa inyong pamilya at sa Diyos," she said.

Cornillo "Yong" Mujahil of Zamboanga placed third with 21.52 percent of votes, while "Cheerful Charmer ng Germany" Edward Barber placed fourth, with 4.49 percent of votes.

Wanting to know more about himself, Barber returned to the Philippines to audition for "PBB." He is also known for having a huge crush on Liza Soberano, for his resemblance to Enrique Gil.

Barber took home P200,000.

"The proudest ever, and expressing words how proud I am. In Germany, it wasn't always the coolest thing, but here, the best feeling in the world," he said about his being Filipino.

Mujahil, on the other hand, received P300,000. His stay inside the house has always been in pursuit of his dream of becoming a celebrity and to help his family. His contagious optimism and determination to succeed in weekly tasks has made a very valuable member of the team.

As the 14th out of 17 children, Mujahil is no stranger to hardships. He has always been very vocal about his dream of coming out as the big winner to give his family a better life.

"Sobrang mahal na mahal ko po 'yung nanay ko, lahat po ng mga kapatid ko, mahal na mahal ko. Kaya po ako nakipaglaban, 'yung lahat para sa kanila po," he said.
