Love wins in ‘PBB Otso’


PBB Otso successfully celebrated the first LGBT wedding on the show with the union of Kuya’s transwoman housemate, Mitch, and her partner, Dudz, which aired last 2 January.

Housemates and star dreamers worked hard to give Mitch Talao, the Trans Mama of Lucena, and her lesbian partner Dudz Ibañez their dream wedding. The housemates overcame the card cake challenge to get Mitch the premium wedding package, while they helped her with the human vase challenge to get the perfect wedding dress for her. Meanwhile the star dreamers shared their different talents to make the event more special.

Mitch and Dudz couldn’t help but tear up as Kuya shared how proud he was of them. He said, “You have proven that love knows no gender or preference. Ikinararangal kayo ng LGBT community, at ikinararangal ko rin kayo.” He wished them a union filled with peace, happiness and love.

The reception was hosted by Tori, the Bombshell Sweetie of Singapore, who entered Kuya’s house as his new housemate last 3 January as Abi, the Kolehiyala Cutie of Isabela, rejoined the outside world.

The weekend of 2 and 3 January had more surprises in store for viewers as Kuya announced the possibility of disbanding the tandem of Apey and Mark. According to Dr. Randy Dellosa, the show’s in-house psychologist, Apey is having a hard time adjusting to being part of a two-in-one housemate with her Kuya Mark. He said that Apey, who is used to being independent, will benefit from the disbandment as she goes back to being solely responsible for her efforts.
