MANILA - "This is the end line for me."
These were the words of San Juan-born Kyle Secades after he told his fellow housemates that he would be voluntarily leaving the "Pinoy Big Brother" house.
The 17-year-old Secades revealed that he deeply misses his parents and that he found it difficult to adapt to his new environment. He added that he felt guilty for being saved from last week's nomination.
"I want to thank you all sa experience. Naging tunay ko kayong kaibigan dito. Sana paglabas natin, tayo pa rin magkakasama ... Sobrang napasaya 'yung stay ko dito dahil sa inyo. Kita-kits sa labas," he said.
Secades' decision meant that the nominees for this week -- Ylona Garcia, Kamille Filoteo, and Kenzo Gutierrez -- were all saved from eviction.
"Hindi ko po ma-imagine kung paano tatakbo ang araw ng wala siya (Secades) diyan," Gutierrez admitted afterwards. "Siya po ang pinakamalapit kong kaibigan dito."
Meanwhile, Filoteo, along with Zonia Mejia and Jimboy Martin, are up for elimination after their team lost the weekly task.
Gutierrez was saved from nomination after earning the highest number of points in the "Ligtask" challenge.
