MANILA - While none of the boys picked her as their date, it is pretty safe to say that Bohol native Vivoree Esclito will look back at Tuesday night with fond memories after scoring her dream duet with "The Voice Kids" finalist Juan Karlos Labajo.
A prom-like program was thrown inside the "Pinoy Big Brother" house for the teen housemates, including Esclito. However, the 16-year-old failed to find a partner for the soiree, perhaps fueling her insecurities about her looks even more. She earlier admitted that she feels hurt whenever her peers call her "balbon."
As it turns out, Kuya, the showrunner, has better plans for Esclito. He tapped Labajo to compose a song, which incorporated Esclito's own penned lyrics.
Esclito had no idea and was pleasantly surprised when Labajo re-entered the "PBB" house to sing a duet with her. "Hindi na po ako nahihiya na ipakita iyong sarili ko kasi naibahagi ko nanaman po sa kanila iyong nararamdaman ko sa pamamagitan ng pagkanta," she said. "I gained more confidence than before so it feels good."
