The reality show of ABS-CBN network, Pinoy Big Brother, has been entertaining viewers for more than a decade now. Since it is a reality show, all the actions of the contestants are not scripted and only given tasks to accomplish.
In every season of Pinoy Big Brother, there are always controversies that shook viewers and became talk of the season. Now let us recall the most scandalous moments in the PBB House since it started.

The closeness of Dionne and Ezekiel has been Kuya’s primary concern from Season 2. They have been scandalous when Dionne went on her knees to smear sunblock all over Zeke’s genitals and there was a time when she was right on top of Zeke’s shirtless body and Dionne just plopped herself on him.
4. Sam Milby and Chx Alcala
Another moment from season 1 that they surely love to remember is the scandalous moment in the pool when Sam and Chx had their hottest kissing moment.
5. Rustom Padilla’s confession
This has become one of the most controversial PBB moments when former action star Rustom Padilla finally revealed to his friend Keanna Reeves his gender identity. He transitioned into a woman and is now known as BB Gandang Hari, currently working and living in the United States.

That look that pierces through your soul.
Even with glasses, his gaze affects you.
Any basher can go now, he really is the one!
That smile though. Anyone can explode.
With that long legs and built, I don’t get why people still doubt the similarities.
How you wish you can be as close as the coffee he’s drinking.

Get ready to roar in laughter as Skylight Films brings together its king and queen, Zanjoe Marudo and Pokwang respectively, in the most hilarious family comedy that is about to hit nationwide – My Illegal Wife.
Teaming up both their unique brilliance and formidable humor as comedians, Z and Powkie made a promising pair in this film as they earned the nods of film critics and the adoration of their loyal fans in their previous hit films Bromance and Call Center Girl.
Directed by blockbuster director Tony Y. Reyes, My Illegal Wife mainly revolves around the story of a loving mother named Clarisse (Pokwang) who will definitely do almost anything to make her family happy, even if it would mean taking the risk of tricking Papa Henry (Zanjoe), who is suffering from amnesia, in to making him believe that he was legally married to her.
Likewise, the film will not only be a laughing medicine for the whole family but it is also a heartwarming story that will abound in the limits of true and lasting love. Moviegoers can definitely expect a zany and whacky movie with hyper tandem of Z and Powkie added to the peerless comedy of Direk Tony.
My Illegal Wife also stars country’s veteran comedians such as Empoy Marquez, Joy Viado, Pooh, Edgar Allan Guzman, Beauty Gonzales and Ms. Anita Linda along with a line-up of coming stars to include Mikylla Ramirez, Steven De Guzman introducing the desirable Ellen Adarna.
My Illegal Wife premieres in cinemas nationwide starting this June 11.
