Big Brother Wiki

Dionne Monsanto was a housemate in Pinoy Big Brother 2.

Inside the house, she was bestfriends with Wendy Valdez.

On Week 4, a controversy arose involving her and Zeke Dimaguila regarding some "naughty actions" aired on television that caught MTRCB's attention enough to issue a memorandum for the show, almost suspending the series. The female housemates were tasked to put sunscreen lotion on the male housemates but she was seen inserting her hand on Zeke Dimaguila's underwear. As a result, the show was invited for a hearing in the MTRCB office regarding the issue. As a result of the hearing, director Laurenti Dyogi, stated in his letter to the Board the same day that the network would issue an apology to viewers who may have been offended by Dionne's behavior and will continue to keep tabs on her. Show host Toni Gonzaga apologized on behalf of the management on the episode aired a few hours after the meeting. Big Brother also ordered Dionne to stay away from Zeke from March 28 to March 31. [1]

Another issue also arose on the same week regarding constant Dionne's biting on Zeke. To resolve the controversies, Big Brother made the non-involved housemates watch the two controversial acts inside the Diary Room, leaving them shocked. The involved housemates where then called into the Diary Room to watch the scenes and to explain what really happened. Dionne explained that she just put lotion on the sides and didn't really touched Zeke's genitals, while the biting was just her form of showing love and care. However, Zeke said that it felt right and felt violated for it.

The decision for their actions was put under the non-involved housemates whether they should get ejected or not. They were sent in to the Diary Room one by one to voice out their opinions regarding the issue whether the acts were improper and violent or not. They unanimously decided that the "insertion" issue was improper, indecent and offensive while the "biting" issue wasn't a form of violence at all. In the end none of the two were ejected.

On Week 7, no nominations occurred but instead, the four housemates who gained more than 5 pounds that week were automatically nominated. Dionne gained more than 5 pounds which made her automatically nominated.

She got evicted on Week 11.
