Camp Star Hunt is one of the main twists in Pinoy Big Brother 8.

Although part of the Pinoy Big Brother: Otso as a twist, Camp Star Hunt was also considered a reality show on its own and was aired digitally on iWant, with episodes focusing on happenings within the camp. The camp's episode highlights were also televised every afternoon from Mondays to Fridays via Pinoy Big Brother Gold premiering on November 14, 2018, and ran until April 15, 2019.

In addition, its contestants were called Star Dreamers whose goal is to be an official housemate for Pinoy Big Brother: Otso and cross-over to the Big Brother House.

The Camp Star Hunt twist appeared throughout the first two batches of Pinoy Big Brother: Otso. On Week 3 of Batch 3, the Camp Star Hunt officially closed when all of its 8 Star Dreamers moved to the Big Brother house as official housemates, ending the Camp Star Hunt & Star Dreamer twist in Pinoy Big Brother: Otso.

In Mid-2019, the Camp was reopened, but as a training camp for ABS-CBN's Star Hunt Academy aired on Star Hunt's official Youtube Channel.

What is Camp Star Hunt?

Camp Star Hunt is a place for potential contestants called Star Dreamers whose main goal is to become official housemates of Pinoy Big Brother 8. The Star Dreamers were the waitlisted contestants out of approx. 50,000 applicants for Pinoy Big Brother who auditioned at the ABS-CBN's Star Hunt Grand Auditions.

Every week, a Housemate Selection process takes place. However, the Star Dreamers must face Weekly Jobs to be eligible for the Housemate Selection. The housemate who was selected would become an official housemate and would cross over to the Big Brother house, replacing the house's recent evictee. Meanwhile, a new Star Dreamer would replace the crossed-over Star Dreamer in the Camp.


The Camp

Main Camp - Upcycled Industrial

Camp Star Hunt was opened on Day 2 of Batch 1 when Star Dreamers who failed the Housemate Selection for the first 8 Official Housemates moved in.

The Camp had an industrial theme with brick walls, industrial windows and metal paneling as its dominant design elements. In addition, some of the furniture in previous Pinoy Big Brother seasons were upcycled for the camp.

It had an open layout with two bedrooms with bunk beds. Compared to the Big Brother house, the Camp lacks an outdoor area for sunlight, and Big Brother was not present nor heard. Camp Star Hunt's host Alex Gonzaga also visits the house occasionally for various announcements.

Interestingly, the camp gets minor changes in every batch:

  • In Batch 2, the bunk beds were replaced by double beds. Some furniture in the living room were also replaced.
  • In Batch 3, the Camp had a makeover by having a midcentury modern - industrial fusion. The brick walls were painted gray while mid-century furniture appeared. The industrial metal wall panels were replaced by golden metal paneling. The diary room now had geometric patterns as a backdrop instead of the corrugated roof backdrop that appeared on the two previous batches. In addition, the former Pinoy Dream Academy facade was officially adopted as the camp's facade and a Camp Star Hunt logo is now placed at the facade.

Camp B - Outdoor/Glamping

A second camp was introduced at the start of Batch 2, located at the refurbished Activity Area. The second camp was designed to resemble an outdoor camp complete with household amenities in which Big Brother called as "Glamping" when Batch 1's Teen Big Four toured the camp. This was inhabited only for the first two days of the 2nd Batch and was closed when the first 8 Official Housemates were selected and the remaining Star Dreamers were merged together at the Main Camp.

The Island

In Batch 3, a special island destination was introduced, an actual secluded island where the second batch of Teen Star Dreamers would start off their journey to becoming an Official Housemate. There were two separate island camps inhabited by two sets of Star Dreamers, one camp mainly for the males and the other for the females.

Camp Star Hunt and Big Brother Differences

Although Camp Star Hunt was part of Pinoy Big Brother 8, it had a separate game mechanics that was only applicable to Star Dreamers in Camp, due to the fact that Star Dreamers were not official housemates until they cross-over.

  • Weekly Job: In contrast to Weekly Tasks in Big Brother house, the Star Dreamers are grouped into two for their Weekly Jobs every week. These jobs are real-life jobs from various work fields that the Star Dreamers must accomplish. A job supervisor, usually an expert from the field, would enter the camp to train the Star Dreamers throughout the Week before their actual work. After their job, the job supervisor would assess their performance and was responsible for choosing which group of Star Dreamers would be eligible for the cross-over selection.
  • Dismissal: Introduced in Batch 2, the Dismissal is the elimination process in Camp Star Hunt, where a Star Dreamer would be dismissed once he/she failed in their jobs for three consecutive times. In the event that there were two or more Star Dreamers were at risk, the Camp would then vote for who they want to save. The Star Dreamer who had the lowest votes from other Star Dreamers would be dismissed.
  • Cross-Over/Housemate Selection: In order to enter the Big Brother House as an official housemate, the Star Dreamers must win the Weekly Jobs to be eligible for cross-over, and must be selected to become an official housemate to move into the Big Brother House. Although a cross-over was the main goal of the Star Dreamers, not all Star Dreamers could cross-over as official housemates.

Twists and Changes

Batch 1 Twists

  • House Players: The Star Dreamers who failed to cross-over were made to be Big Brother's House Players where for every task they would accomplish, they would win P10,000. At the end of the Batch, the accumulated reward will be divided among the House Players.

Batch 2 Twists

  • Two Camps: Batch 2 began with two camps with two groups of Star Dreamers.
    • Ultim8 Star Dreamer Challenge: For the first housemate selection, both camps must accomplish the challenge. The first 8 official housemates would be chosen based on individual performances from both camps. In addition, Star Dreamers who lost the challenge and stayed in the camp would have their loss counted for the risk of dismissal.
  • Big Brother's Choice: Unlike Batch 1 where the public had the power to choose who among the Star Dreamers will cross-over, the Batch 2 Star Dreamers selected to cross-over were chosen by Big Brother.
  • Camp Dismissal: A new type of elimination process called "Dismissal", a Star Dreamer can now be dismissed from the Camp. If a Star Dreamer landed on the losing team in their weekly jobs for three consecutive times, he/she will be in danger of a dismissal.
    • Star Dreamers' Vote: In the event that there are more than one Star Dreamer in danger of a possible dimissal, the remaining safe Star Dreamers will have to vote which among those nominated for dismissal should stay. The one with the lowest save votes from their fellow Star Dreamers will be dismissed.

Batch 3 Twists

  • Big Island Adventure: Batch 3 began with Star Dreamers spending the first week in a real island in Hundred Islands in Pangasinan. There were two island camps, one for the males and one for the females. At the end of the week, the first 8 official housemates were selected based on their performances on the island.
  • The Gr8 C: On the first cross-over of the batch, all four members of the winning team were selected to cross-over to the Big Brother House. They were then followed by the remaining Star Dreamers still in Camp within the week.
  • Camp Star Hunt Closed: Because of the Gr8 C twist, Batch 3 saw the closing of the Camp when all of the 8 Star Dreamers crossed-over to the Big Brother House as official housemates.

Batch 4 Twists

  • No Camp, No Star Dreamers: As a result of the closing of the camp, the Camp Star Hunt never returned in Batch 4.

On the second evening of the series' two-night live premiere, the male and female teens who failed to be selected and get the first eight official housemate slots in the Big Brother house were announced to be going to a special place called "Camp Star Hunt" to continue their battle on becoming an official housemate. They were eventually sent to a van which would be transporting them to the camp. The camp was officially introduced when the Teen Star Dreamers finally moved in to the camp.

The show's host Alex Gonzaga entered the camp to officially welcome them in their new home and later had a getting-to-know session and sharing of thoughts on the game-changing twist that is Camp Star Hunt. However, their fun is temporarily cut short when the teens receive a surprise visit from their loved ones. While some are overojyed to see their family, others turn emotional with this quick reunion. Nevertheless, the housemate hopefuls refocus on their quest upon hearing Alex’s announcement regarding how the Camp would work.

The first job of the Star Dreamers was officially announced. It was revealed that the teen Star Dreamers would be working as barbecue vendors where they would be preparing, cooking and selling barbecues.

The Star Dreamers welcome a restaurant owner, Larry Convencido Jr., to the Star Hunt Camp. Larry then guided the Star Dreamers to prepare for their first job. Later, Larry picked two leaders from the Star Dreamers to lead their group. Criza Taa and Rhys Eugenio became the team leaders for their first job. The Star Dreamers also shared what they learned from Larry.

Divided into two groups, the Star Dreamers prepared for their barbecue selling task. While one team managed to run things smoothly, the other struggled to even come up with a concrete plan. Team Rhys had a misunderstanding as Gabby Sarmiento and Krist Vertudez couldn't agree on each other's plans when constructing their food stall. Nevertheless, the teenagers worked together on their mission to keep their hopes of becoming an official housemate alive.

The Star Dreamers’ barbecue selling task commenced. The members of Team Criza and Team Rhys scrambled in getting customers for their barbecue. As time dwindled down, Team Criza panicked over pressure while Team Rhys encountered a major mishap.

At the end of their job, Team Criza managed to earn sales higher than Team Rhys giving them 8 points while Team Rhys only got 4 points. Aside from the points collected in their job, they would be ranked by the Job Supervisor Larry from 8 being the highest and 1 being the lowest. Eventually, four Star Dreamers came on top, Criza Taa with 16 points, Missy Quino with 13 points, Achilles Samain with 12 points and Rhys Eugenio with 11 points. These Top 4 Star Dreamers would receive eligibility for a Cross-Over Selection to be determined by the viewers.

At the end of the week, the viewer voting results were officially announced and it was Criza who received the highest viewer votes, thus making her an official housemate and being able leave the camp and cross-over to the Big Brother House. She entered the house right after the Pinoy Big Brother's first evictee Josh Worsley went out of the Big Brother House.

Right after Criza crossed-over, a new teen Star Dreamer was introduced, the 18-year old Kurt Gerona of Bohol.

Week 2 began with the arrival of the new Star Dreamer, Kurt Gerona in which they welcomed happily.

The next day, they were given a chance to express all their insecurities by writing them down on a piece of paper and stick it into the punching bag to punch the negativity away. The punching bag eventually became a hint to their job for the week.

Later, health and wellness coach Coach Nikki Torres and gym instructor Coach Culver Padilla entered the camp to introduce the 2nd Job to the Star Dreamers and also become their Job Supervisor for the entire week. They then went on to get to know the Star Dreamers before teaching them a full body workout. Afterward, Nikki and Culver divide the Star Dreamers into two groups and pick two rightful leaders. Sansan Dagumampan and Gabby Sarmiento were appointed as the team leaders for their team.

Fitness coach Nikki Torres gave the Star Dreamers some tips in cooking healthier food. She then supervised Team Gabby and Team Sansan in preparing for their dance workout task. However, conflict arose between the members of a group during the preparation. Both teams later present their choreographies in the final rehearsals.

The Star Dreamers commenced their second weekly job where they traveled to a fitness gym for their job. Divided into two groups, Teams Wonder4 and GG Force are each given time to teach a full body workout. While doing so, fitness coaches Nikki Torres and Culver Padilla critiqued the Star Dreamers’ team and individual performances. The clients also gave their thoughts on their gym instructors for the day.

Trivia

Maymay Entrata - Bituin (Official Lyric Video)

Maymay Entrata - Bituin (Official Lyric Video)

Bituin (eng. Star), the Official Theme Song specially used in Camp Star Hunt sung by PBB7 Winner Maymay Entrata.

  • Although the Crossed-Over Star Dreamers are seen getting out of the car when being welcomed in front of the Big Brother House to enter, the Camp is actually located just within the PBB studio compound; specifically located on what used to be the area occupied by House B in Double Up, Apartment in Teen Clash, and Industrial House in Pinoy Big Brother: Unlimited.
  • Unlike the official housemates in Big Brother House where they are in complete confinement, the Star Dreamers travel outside to a certain destination every week for their Weekly Jobs.
  • There are no nominations nor evictions in the Camp Star Hunt, instead they are evaluated through score rankings to be eligible for a Big Brother cross-over as an official housemate.
    • This changed in Batch 2 after the Dismissal eliminations were introduced to the game.
  • During Batch 1, when the camp's existence were still a secret to the Official Housemates, all Star Dreamers who managed to cross-over to become an official housemate were prohibited to talk, discuss or mention anything about the Camp Star Hunt once they entered the house and met the official housemates. Official Housemates who used to live in the camp are prohibited to show any prior relationship with other cross-over housemates inside the Big Brother House. This changed when the camp was officially revealed to the first 8 official housemates in the Big Brother House.
