Big Brother Wiki

James Reid is the Big Winner of Pinoy Big Brother: Teen Clash 2010.

James first entered on Day 23 as part of the "Teenternationals" twist, wherein a group of foreign-born teens in the Philippines joined the season and competed against Team Pinoy, the remaining original teen housemates. He resided in the Apartment with his fellow Teenternational housemates.

Initially, 16-year-old Filipino-Australian James Reid was a shy and introverted housemate among a diverse group of teens. As he stayed longer and mingled with fellow Teenternationals, he gradually formed close relationships and befriended most of them. James became particularly close with Visayan-speaking American Bret Jackson and goofy Korean Ryan Bang, with the former connecting due to a similar interest in music. Due to his under-the-radar nature, he managed to avoid the wrath of nominations.

Throughout the season, James became known for his laid-back charm, natural nonchalance, and reserved nature. But he also possessed determination and eagerness to uplift his team. He's also one of the teen housemates who celebrated his Birthday in the Big Brother house. On Day 32, James turned 16 inside the Big Brother house, and the Teenternational housemates surprised James at his 17th Birthday Party.

He survived to reach the second merge of the season, where the remaining Pinoy and Teenternational housemates lived under one roof, the Villa. As the season progressed, James competed with Team Teenternationals against Team Pinoy to secure slots for the Big Night. Yet, as the season nears the end, James almost didn't make it due to emergency health concerns. On Week 8, while practicing for their Weekly Task, James had difficulty breathing and underwent an X-ray examination. On Day 53, James and fellow housemate Angelo Pasco were taken out of the house and were confined at the hospital as per the show's medical specialist. As a rule in the Pinoy Big Brother house, James and Angelo had to return to the house after 24 hours, or else it'd be a grave violation, and they'd receive a forced eviction as punishment. Out of the two housemates, however, only James was cleared by the hospital to return to the house, while Angelo was officially declared "forced evicted" due to his health. Upon James' return, he had to wear an oxygen tube connected to an oxygen tank for a week until Day 60.

Eventually, James secured a spot in the season's Big Six and reached the Big Night finale. At the Big Night finale, dubbed "Unite At the Big Night," the Team Teenternationals surpassed the Team Pinoy during public voting and James was left at the final two with his friend Ryan Bang. After earning 179,294 SMS votes, or 19.75% of the total votes, James stood victorious and clinched the Big Winner title. He received a Grand Prize package that included a ₱1,000,000 check, a Sony Vaio laptop, a 46" Sony LCD, a Crystal Clear Water franchise, an Asian tour for two to Hong Kong, Thailand, and Singapore, and a ₱3M-worth condominium unit.

James was in the midst of studying when he and his father moved to the Philippines. He initially went to a regular high school, but he had a difficult time adjusting academically so his Australian father moved him to a distance-learning center. Because of his mestizo looks, many adored James but still, there are times that he lacks confidence in himself. And those are the times when he needed to speak in front of many people. Whenever he needs to speak in front of people, he often gets a mental block and fails to speak a word.

James made many friends, but is it enough for this friendly boy to adjust inside Big Brother's house, or is it like her studies that he needs special attention?
