This is the February 5, 2021 (Friday) edition of Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) Connect, the ninth main and fifteenth overall season of the said reality show, which premiered on December 6, 2020, on both A2Z Channel 11 and Kapamilya Channel.
The show is also simulcast and digitally streamed via ABS-CBN’s entertainment website, iWantTFC (on-demand streaming service), and Kapamilya Channel’s Kapamilya Online Live on Facebook and YouTube. Live feeds of the House are also being shown on Kumu, an online streaming platform.
Below are the highlights of today’s episode:
• Big Brother sought help from ex-housemate and PBB big winner Melai Cantiveros to lecture Quincy on how to effectively portray a manananggal role, the task given to her by the PBB Mail Box. Melai is also one of the host of PBB Connect.
• Housemates chanted a ritual to bring back Quincy to her “human state,” officially ending her manananggal task.
• For the next task, Big Brother told the housemates to select two of the best hosts in the Big Brother house. They selected Gail and Ralph to do the task which is to host a radio show.
• Gail and Ralph aced the ChisQuiz segment of their radio show task.
PBB Connect is the fifth consecutive time that both civilian adults and teenagers participated in one season, and the first time since the All In season to house them together as just one batch.
Toni Gonzaga, Bianca Gonzales, and Robi Domingo reprised their roles as hosts.
