Big Brother Wiki

Bailey Thomas May is a 4th Placer finalist on the Teen Edition of Pinoy Big Brother: 737.

Bailey was nicknamed as the Global Gwapito of United Kingdom for his charming looks as well as his background of growing up in a foreign country. Entering the house, at age 12, many audiences also thought he looked a lot older than his actual age while inside the house, however his mind is still a bit childish and playful which was obvious to his actions inside the Big Brother house.

With the help of Big Brother's life advices, he was also remarkable for his character development as he became more mature throughout his stay in the house than the way he was when he first entered the Big Brother house.

Growing up in Britain most of his life, Bailey initially had a hard time adapting to the lifestyles of his fellow housemates, but throughout the series, he exerted his best effort to learn and adapt to his Filipino side, with the help of his housemates and especially Big Brother.

In the early days of his stay inside the house, Bailey was notable for committing several violations which led him being punished by Big Brother. On Day 3, Bailey was punished to become a human speaker throughout until Big Brother lifted the punishment.

Early on, Bailey immediately made a very close friendship with Kenzo Gutierrez. He also gained friendships immediately with most of the housemates, with the likes of Ryan Bacalla, Franco Rodriguez and Barbie Imperial. During the latter part of the Teen Chapter, he made a closer friendship with Ylona Garcia which eventually led to infatuations, albeit a childish kind.

Bailey and Ylona's puppy romance began a new fandom that shipped the two, most of which were composed of adolescent girls. Fans named their loveteam, Bailona and a new fanbase was formed, which worked to their advantage.

Their loveteam sprouted immediately, although they were unaware that such things were happening outside the house until they went back outside. They eventually became part of the Big Four and secured a place for the Big Night. Bailey and the Teen Big Four temporarily left the house for the Civilian chapter.

Bailey and the Teen Big Four; Ylona, Jimboy and Franco went back inside the house on Week 15 to live with the remaining adult housemates. Bailey gained a close friendship with Tommy Esguerra which he treated as an older brother.

On Day 140, the Teen Big Four and the Adult Big Four finally departed the Big Brother house and travelled to Legazpi City in Albay for the season's Big Night finale where in Bailey was announced as the 4th Teen Big Placer after receiving 7.58% of the total public votes.


Bailey May Biography

Full Name: Bailey Thomas May
Origin: UK
Age: 12
Occupation: Student
Hobbies: Playing Football, Basketball and Rugby, Singing

This Social Media Singing Sensation got his vocal talent from his British dad and Filipina mom who were both singers in a cruise ship when they met. Bailey was born in Cebu, but has been living in the UK with his family since he was 4yo. He’s into sports (football, basketball, rugby), music and girl watching with his friends (Bailey has never had a girlfriend, though).

Throughout their seven years in the UK, Bailey and his family has visited his mom’s relatives in Cebu a few times, exposing Bailey to Filipino culture and dishes. In fact, some of Bailey’s favorite food include munggo and puto. And believe it or not, Bailey eats balut, too! On the other hand, speaking in Filipino (Tagalog and Bisaya) was never really practiced in their household so Bailey only knows “konting” Tagalog and “gamay” na Bisaya, which explains the Filipino dictionary in Bailey’s luggage when we rummaged through the stuff that he’ll be bringing inside the Pinoy Big Brother House. Will his love for Filipino food and his Filipino dictionary be enough to help Bailey adjust and fit in with his other Teen Housemates? Will he be able to prove that he has the heart of the Filipino and deserves to be the next Teen Big Winner? Find out on PBB737 Teen Edition
