I am a big follower of ABS-CBN Kapamilya. When some of my personal friends ask me why, I always answer jokingly, “Ang remote control ng T.V. ay sira at Channel 10 lang ang gumagana.” Although I was not able to watch the whole episode of the latest Pinoy Big Brother, I am still a big fan of the show. However, there were some episodes I did not like because of the same corny strategy applied. Nothing I can’t do because Big brother is always right.
The said reality show was reopened last March 23, 2008, Easter Sunday. It’s more than two months now and it will sadly end later tonight at the big dome as they will proclaim the big winner among the big four. I like Robi for being smart; Nicole for being sweet; Beauty for being frank; and Ejay for being innocent and true. Obviously, I like EJAY FALCON most. He is my personal choice and my Big bet to be a Big winner of Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition Plus.
EJAY FALCON is originally from Oriental Mindoro. He didn’t look like much of a native at first glance that’s because his mestizo looks come from his biological French father. Back in his hometown, Ejay traces his roots to a small community called Pola. It is also the birthplace of Vice-President Noli de Castro. As I quoted from the Pinoy Big brother mag, Ejay spent his childhood indulging in typical probinsyano pursuits: riding a bangka, diving in the seas, swimming in the river, climbing coconut trees, hiking with friends to a waterfall in the mountains, and lifting loads of rice and copra for a few pesos. Living in the Big Brother house, his formerly peaceful probinsiyano life has changed a lot. But those changes have definitely been for the better, like when he confessed to his foster father that he(Ejay) knew about it all along. That confession and the surprise revelation made their bond deeper and stronger as truly father and son. He was able to overcome his shyness and ka-torpehan as he tried to express his feelings to Valerie(his girl housemate. Ejay has a big transformation and a true PINOY indeed!
Joining Pinoy Big Brother will hopefully be the big start of a better life for him who had give up schooling because his family couldn’t afford it. Toni even revealed that prior to joining PBB, he didn’t know how to use a cell phone. Afterall, PBB is not a beauty contest and a quiz bee challenge but a reality show. Whether he ends up winning tonight or not, whether he gets that 1 million or not, Ejay has already gained something that money can’t buy- his memorable experience in PBB house and be an inspiration to the Filipinos especially the poor. That is to dream to be a big star is possible. With big hope to be a big star is a big dream comes true.
P.S. It’s my first time to support and vote in PBB because I want to help Ejay reach his dream. He inspired me because I also came from a poor family.
