MANILA – Enchong Dee surprised “ASAP” viewers on Sunday when it was announced that he will be the 12th housemate to enter the “Pinoy Big Brother” house for its 10th anniversary edition.
After his production number on the musical variety show, "PBB" co-host Robi Domingo said Dee will be joining him, Toni Gonzaga and Bianca Gonzalez in giving updates about the reality show starting Sunday.
“Sa pagbubukas po ng Bahay ni Kuya, may bago kaming makakasama nila Bianca and Toni sa paghahatid sa inyo ng mga latest happenings sa pinakasikat na bahay sa buong bansa,” Domingo said.
However, Dee’s hosting stint will have to start with a twist as he needs to enter the famous yellow house as well.
“Sa lahat ng fans ng ‘PBB,’ ako po si Enchong Dee at ako po ang pinakabago niyong host. Pagsisikapan ko po na sana magustuhan niyo ang gagawin ko sa ‘PBB’ and hindi kop o kayo bibiguin. Paghihirapan ko po ang trabahong ito,” he said.
Asked if he is already prepared to leave the outside world to begin his hosting job, Dee said: “Nakapag-decision na ako. Nung tinanggap ko itong ‘PBB,’ handa po ako kung ano 'yung mga saklaw nitong show na ito. Sana magustuhan po niyo ito.”
Dee, however, admitted that he still feels nervous over the challenges that might be given to him.
Aside from Dee, four other new housemates entered the “PBB” house on Sunday. They are Kyle from San Juan, Zonia from Quezon City, Franco from Albay and Ylona from Australia.
On Saturday, seven other housemates, whose identities were unveiled through various Kapamilya shows over the week, were formally introduced and ushered inside the blue and yellow house.
This batch included Cebu-native Ryan Bacalla, online heartthrob Bailey May, rapper Jimboy Martin, Atenean football player Kenzo Gutierrez, teenage mother Kamille Filoteo, Albay's Barbie Imperial, and Muslim teen Ailah Antopina.
