MANILA – JP Lagumbay, one of the twin housemates of “Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) Double UP,” made a voluntary exit merely two days after he joined the ABS-CBN’s hit reality-based show.

Dubbed as "Jetsetter Dad of QC," JP, the twin brother of JM, decided to leave PBB after he was informed that his application for leave has been declined by his employer.

“Kuya” told him that he needed to report for work or he would face sanctions. JP was torn between staying inside the house for his twin brother JM and leaving PBB to go back to his work.

JP confessed that he wanted to stick around for his brother, but he could not lose his job.

"Mahalaga po (ang manatili sa bahay) pero para sa akin mas mabigat po ang para sa pamilya ko, para sa asawa ko, sa mga anak ko at saka 'yong bunso pong isisilang ng asawa ko," JP said.

In the end, Big Brother respected and supported JP's decision to leave the house.

Kuya said: "JP tinatanggap ko ang iyong pagvo-voluntary exit dahil naniniwala ako na sa lahat ng pagkakataon bilang isang ama ay mas mahalaga na matugunan mo ang pangangailangan ng iyong pamilya. At dahil diyan binibigyan ko ng pagkakataon ang iyong kakambal na manatili pa dito sa aking bahay."

Meanwhile, theories on the double up twins still abound in the female-dominated House B, but the girls remain clueless about the existence of another house. The opposite is happening in House A where most of the male housemates live. They haven’t noticed the switching of twins, but are suspicious that Big Brother has another house on the other side of the wall.

Did the double up twins fail their first task, or will they be able to disprove the housemates’ theories? What will be Big Brother’s take regarding JP’s early voluntary exit?
