MANILA -- “We have never chosen a housemate based on sharing a photo on Facebook.”

This was the statement released by Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) through its official Facebook account, as well as its Twitter account. This was in response to a fake account claiming that the new housemates for the upcoming Season 7 would be chosen via sharing of a picture of the "PBB" house.

The fake account had already over 150,000 shares before being taken down on Monday.

The show officially teased PBB Season 7 last March 30, although details on the auditions have yet to be announced.

“Make sure you're following our official page that has a blue check, which means it has [been] verified by Facebook, and our other official social media accounts,” the show further stated on Facebook.

"Pinoy Big Brother" is among the most popular reality shows in the Philippines. It first aired on ABS-CBN in 2005.
