Big Brother Wiki

Outside World Destination is a twist that appears only in Pinoy Big Brother series. It first appeared on Pinoy Big Brother: Teen Edition 1.

The twist is where the housemates gets a chance to travel to a certain location outside of the Big Brother House, either for a task, a challenge, or simply a luxury reward or in some occasions all of those activities.

Despite going outside, the housemates are blindfolded throughout their trip and once they arrived in the location, they aren't allowed to talk to anybody unrelated to the activity they will be doing unless the activity requires social communication.

Traditionally, the outside world destination travel occurred halfway through the season. However, recent seasons have used the twist to start an edition.

In Pinoy Big Brother 7, the twist was used frequently for various purposes, and for the first time, the housemates traveled outside of the country. The twist returned on Batch 3 of Pinoy Big Brother: Otso where Big Brother brought his teen housemates to Hundred Islands during the first week of the batch. It made a comeback again on Teen Edition of Pinoy Big Brother: Kumunity Season 10 with the teen housemates living in two camps located in the mountains of Southern Luzon.

BB house in Hundred Islands

The Big Brother Cottage in Hundred Islands where the teen housemates stayed. It still exists today.

The twist was first introduced in this season. This season, the outside world destination was in Hundred Islands in Alaminos, Pangasinan.

A small version of the Big Brother house was specially built at the foot of the Governor's Island, also painted in the iconic Pinoy Big Brother house's colors. The final six housemates, Brenda Fox, Clare Cabiguin, Gerald Anderson, Jamilla Obispo, Kim Chiu and Mikee Lee have traveled and stayed in there for one week where they did various tasks.

However, Gerald was sent back early to the Big Brother House in Manila as disciplinary action for cheating at a task back at the Hundred Islands. While collecting garbage in that particular task, he unknowingly placed a rock among the garbage he collected and effectively made the garbage bag heavier. He spent the rest of the day picking up rocks, talking to himself, and apologizing to everybody.

He was alone in the Big Brother house for three days before his housemates returned from the trip. On his second day, Jollibee of the famous fastfood restaurant Jollibee accompanied him inside the house and brought him Jollibee foods to eat.

PBBTE2 Montage Island Adventure

Montage of the Island Adventure

This season, their outside world destination was located in Puerto Princesa in Palawan.

To prepare the housemates for their upcoming island adventure, members of the 505th Search and Rescue Brigade of the Philippine Air Force put the housemates into military training for the first time as part of their weekly task. Unable to hold the pressure much longer in front of the commanders, the house player, Shy decided to leave the House.

The remaining 8 housemates were separated into two groups. Ejay, Valerie, Nan, and Beauty were whisked to an island in the National Park of Puerto Princesa, Palawan for their Island Adventure, accompanied by Big Brother. On the other hand, Robi, Rona, Alex, Nicole, and house player Mikan were left behind in the House, later to be accompanied by Primo, a Batak tribesman from Palawan, who taught them survival techniques.

After receiving instructions from Cyber Kuya (Big Brother's messenger who shows the instructions through the TV monitor), Robi, Rona, Nicole, Alex, and Mikan were sent to Palawan to join the four housemates already there for the Island Adventure. For the meantime, the Guardians John, Minda, My Love, Jinky, and Rose returned to the House to take care of it in the teens and Big Brother's absence, as well as to keep Primo company until eventually he was sent off later in the afternoon.

Throughout their stay, they were challenged on how to survive on a secluded treacherous place. They also had to accomplish various tasks within the week of their stay.

Pinoy Big Brother 7[]

The Outside World Destination was brought back in this season, beginning with the first of the three chapters of the season, the Celebrity Edition when instead of entering the house, they were immediately sent to the airport to travel to Vietnam right after the live launch. It was the first time in Pinoy Big Brother history that the housemates would travel outside the country. They stayed in the Big Brother Vietnam house for two weeks.

Throughout the season's four editions, the housemates traveled outside for various purposes, often traveling for a task, a challenge, or a reward for the housemates.
