Big Brother Wiki

Balls of Fate is a twist that appeared in Pinoy Big Brother 7's Celebrity Chapter.

It was introduced on Day 17, when the Celebrity Housemates entered the Pinoy Big Brother House who just came from the Vietnam Big Brother house.

A Lottery Machine called Big Tambiolo will appear any time of the day and once it appeared, they must pick a ball from the Balls of Fate inside, whatever image is inside the ball will happen to the housemates, whether unlucky or lucky.

It didn't return for the Teen Chapter of the series but it reappeared once during the Adults Chapter when the Adult Housemates had to pick a punishment for their violations.

Throughout Week 3, The Big Tambiolo lit up randomly, signifying that the Celebrity Housemates must take a ball of fate. Whatever they took will be applied to their stay inside the house for a specific amount of time.
