MANILA - Cheridel Alejandrino, known to many as the "elevator girl," joined the reality television series "Pinoy Big Brother" (PBB) on Saturday.

The YouTube sensation from Olongapo will replace Alex Gonzaga inside the "PBB" house. She joined the remaining 12 contestants, who include celebrity housemate Daniel Matsunaga.

Asked what the viewers can expect from her, Alejandrino said: "Si Cheridel po ay hindi lang isang nanay kung hindi isang anak po na nangangarap na mabigyan ng bahay at lupa ang kanyang mga magulang bago po sila mawala."

Alejandrino first shot to fame when a video clip of her antics inside an elevator of a mall made rounds online. The short clip shows the 26-year-old patiently informing the passengers of establishments found at a specific floor.

Her cheerfulness and amusing personality inspired many Filipinos workers, and she has since been honored and recognized by shopping mall giant SM Supermalls.
