MANILA - Following her exit from the "Pinoy Big Brother" house, Ali Forbes said she only has one regret --that she wasn't able to get to know fellow housemate Tanner Mata better. 

The Binibining Pilipinas 2012 first runner-up made the admission during her guesting at the late night talk show "Tonight with Boy Abunda" on Thursday, adding that the hunk model is "special" to her. 

"Iyon din ang isa sa mga regret ko," she said. "Hindi kasi ako masyadong nag-open up na parang, ngayon ko lang na-realize na totoo pala iyong sinasabi nila na [malalaman mo kung] importante iyong isang tao kapag hindi mo na siya nakakasama." 

Forbes exited the reality show last Friday along with Jesi Corcuera. During her stint, she was being romantically linked to Tanner by their fellow housemates. Asked if Tanner showed interest in her, Forbes said: "I think, yes."
