The rumors of the Pinoy Big Brother show being scripted have been going around for years now.
In Direk Lauren Dyogi‘s recent vlog in his YouTube account, he finally spoke about the allegations. He told everybody that “Sa mga nagsasabing scripted ang PBB, it’s an unfair statement.”
He stated that they don’t talk about it a lot but they can see the comments and he thinks that quite a number of them are unfair because the people cannot see the hard work of the staff behind the cameras.
“Di natin napag-uusapan ‘yon pero masakit din ‘yong mga comments and I think a lot of the comments, a lot of them are unfair,
Hindi minsan nakikita ‘yong oras behind the scenes bago mag-audition, ‘yong oras at ‘yong energy at ‘yong effort na inuukol ng mga tao namin,”
Direk Lauren discussed the topic with ABS-CBN business unit head Raymond Dizon while waiting at an airport in Naga City after a Star Hunt audition in the area.
He also shared that there are aspiring Pinoy Big Brother contestants that for him are “obvious choices” or the ones that he can see the potential on being a housemate.
He mentioned Joshua Garcia as one example, who became a part of the 2014 Pinoy Big Brother: All In.
“Ang nagustuhan ko kay Joshua kasi matangkad, makinis. Kapag nagkukuwentuhan kami, engaged naman ako. Kinekuwento niya ‘yong mga nililigawan niya, ‘yong mga naging girlfriend niya,
So I had a feeling pagdating ng bahay, magiging interesting ‘yong interaction niya sa mga housemates,”
He also mentioned Jameson Blake who became a housemate during the Pinoy Big Brother: 737 last 2015. He stated that Jameson was scouted and was encouraged to do the auditions for PBB.
He narrated how they found the actor in Baguio City in the midst of the celebration of Panagbenga Festival.
“Kapag may nahanap sila, dadalhin na nila ngayon sa audition venue. I think that’s how Jameson was spotted,
A lot of choices are because there’s magic, napagtatagpo namin ang mga tao,”
Other former housemates he also mentioned are Maymay Entrata and Edward Barber, who joined Pinoy Big Brother: Lucky 7.
“Maymay without Edward, hindi natin alam how it will happen.”
