Isn't it amazing that in the history of PBB, it is in PBB teens that this "pagiging tutoong tao" was questioned -- and by a young person pa -- albeit an smart one (Mikey). Feeling ko na-mi-misinterpret ito too much to be a manifestation of "attitude". EVEN UMA THINKS THAT WAY.
Okay, sige, Wendy was true to her feelings -- that may as well be good. But that doesn't mean just because the others (Bea and Gee-Ann) didn't show attitude , means they aren't their true selves. DIYAN NAGKAKAROON NG GAP ANG MGA HOUSEMATES. Iba-iba ang language ng tao (language here means iba-ibang paraan ng pag proseso ng isang situation), dahil iba ang kinalakihan, iba ang karanasan. Naging batayan kasi ng pagiging tutoo ang attitude na palaban, pagkawalang bahala, pagkalakas ng bibig at pagkarahas ng kilos.
Ang PBB Big 4 para sa akin ay hindi lang yung taong naging tutoo sa sarili (hanggang sa huli), at naging tutoo sa iba (which can be measured by how consistent they are with their CONVICTIONS and FEELINGS) -- PERO YUNG NAGING EHEMPLO SA TAO. THEY ARE EXAMPLES OF PEOPLE WHO REALIZE THAT UNDERSTANDING WHERE OTHERS ARE COMING FROM CAN ADD TO THE TRUTH/TRUTHS THEY KNOW ABOUT THEMSELVES -- AND SO, THEY ELEVATE THEMSELVES TO A HIGHER LEVEL.
MY BIG 4 ARE EXAMPLES OF PEOPLE WHO KNOW HOW TO SEPARATE THE GAME FROM THE FRIENDSHIP. WHO KNOW THAT FRIENDSHIP GOES BEYOND THE GAME DESPITE THE VOTINGS; WHO KNOW THAT FRIENDSHIP IS NOT BASED ON A "VOTE". THE END OF PBB WILL SHOW THAT THERE WILL BE HOUSEMATES WHO WANT THE PRIZE (NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT), WHO WANT TO BE IN THE BIG 4 (NOTHING WRONG WITH THAT), WHO WANT TO GROW, WHO WANT THE EXPERIENCE. BUT IN THE END, SINO BA TALAGA ANG NAGING EHEMPLO NG PAGIINTINDI, NG TAMANG PAGTITIMPI, NG TAMANG ASAL? WALANG KABAYARAN YAN. KAHIT ISANG MILYON AT BAHAY DI KABAYARAN YAN. BECAUSE IN REAL LIFE ITS HOW WE RELATE WITH EACH OTHER -- DESPITE OUR BACKGROUNDS, OUR PASTS AND WHAT WE HAVE COME TO KNOW. WE MAY NOT SEE THINGS THE SAME WAY, BUT ITS HOW WE UNDERSTAND THAT SOME PEOPLE SEE IT THIS WAY, AND SOME PEOPLE THAT WAY.
PINOY BIG BROTHER FOR ME IS A STORY OF FORTITUDE. AT THE END OF THE GAME, FOR ME ITS THE HOUSEMATE WHOSE CHARACTER AND SPIRIT HAS NOT BEEN TARNISHED BUT ENHANCED BY THE GAME. ITS WHAT PEOPLE GIVE UP FOR THE GAME AND WHAT PEOPLE BECOME BECAUSE OF THE GAME. LARO LANG ITO, WALANG PIKUNAN. ITS ABOUT GOING OUT OF ONES WAY TO SEEK TO UNDERSTAND, RATHER THAN SEEKING TO BE UNDERSTOOD -- KAHIT MASAKIT, KAHIT MAPAIT.
ITS WHO BECOMES THE BIGGER AND BETTER PERSON BEYOND THE GAME.
SAYANG SI BRUCE -- NAWALAN NG FOCUS. NAWALA ANG MISYON NIYA FOR HIS FAMILY -- NA-OVERWHELM NG MISYON TO PROVE HIMSELF TO WENDY.
SAYANG SI WENDY -- IF ONLY SHE WAS ENCOURAGED TO OPEN HER MIND MORE THAN HER MOUTH, SANA SHE WAS FED REASONS FOR TO RESOLVE RATHER THAN TO INTIMIDATE. BUT NOT TO WORRY, SHE'LL FIND HER PLACE IN THE SUN WITH SHOWBUSINESS AND HER TALENT -- YUNG ANGAS NIYANG YUN, SHE'LL SURVIVE SHOWBIZ. SHE HAD A POINT ACTUALLY -- BUT IT ENDED WITH HER ANGER. SHE COULD HAVE LEARNED A LOT FROM GEE-ANN AND VICE VERSA BECAUSE BOTH HAVE COLORFUL STORIES BEHIND THEM.
SAYANG SI NEL -- BECAUSE HE GETS PUSHED TO LOSE HIS CONVICTIONS BY STRONGER CHARACTERS IN THE HOUSE.
SAYANG SI KIAN -- BECAUSE CIRCUMSTANCE PUSHED HIM OUT OF THE HOUSE EVEN BEFORE MORE OF HIS CHARACTER COULD BE REVEALED.
PBB IS A CHALLENGE NOT ONLY ON THE HOUSEMATE'S ABILITY TO SEEK TO UNDERSTAND BUT US TOO. HOW FAR CAN OUR UNDERSTANDING GO TO MAKE WHATEVER HOUSE WE LIVE IN, WHATEVER COMMUNITY WE MOVE IN BECOME A PLACE OF HARMONY? WHEN DOES A GAME TAKE ITS TOLL ON FRIENDSHIP AND WHEN DOES FRIENDSHIP GO BEYOND THE GAME. YAN ANG TUNAY NA LARO SA PBB. (some of the messages posted by rrccolo from pex)
Very well said. (clap! clap! clap!) An eye opening for those who do not know the real meaning of "pagiging tutoong tao".
And here are my PBB2 Big Four Winners:
Yes , the fourth one is buddy! Mabuti pa kasi yung aso. hahaha...
Honestly, I still don't know who will be on my fourth list. I'm still thinking between Nel or Bodie. I just don't like seeing them both acting as weakling characters and easily manipulated (sunod-sunuran) by stronger ones. I hope they'll change for the better and be MAN enough to do something!
