Pinoy Big Brother: 737 is a two-part edition held under one season. This season is the twelfth overall season and the first combined edition of Pinoy Big Brother where in Teen and Civilian Editions were aired continuously within the entire season duration.
This season coincides with the tenth year of Pinoy Big Brother where it saw a year-long celebration for the first successful decade of the franchise. It began airing on June 20, 2015 on ABS-CBN and ended on November 8, 2015, lasting 142 days, only falling 13 days short of Unlimited. The show aired 10:00pm (PST) every Mondays to Sundays.
The theme for this season revolves around the concept of having a "combination" which was made apparent on the season's logo resembling a combination code.
Throughout the duration of the season, it was divided into two editions. The first part aired was the "Teen Edition" which aired for 7 weeks, until the edition's Teen Big Four were announced on Day 49. The second part aired was the "Civilian Edition" which began on Day 50, right after the Teen Big Four had temporarily left the house. The Teen finalists returned to the house on Day 99 as non-competing housemates as they have secured their place on the finale. After the final eviction on Day 133, the public determined the winner of each batch. On the two-part finale, the third and fourth placers of each batch were announced. The votes went back to zero and the lines re-opened for the remaining housemates of each batch to determine the winners.
Less than a month after the conclusion of Pinoy Big Brother: All In, the Pinoy Big Brother production team announced that work was underway for developing the sixth regular season. On January 28, 2015, ABS-CBN released a teaser with highlights of the past seasons and editions, including the big winners. The logo is inside the zero of a number 10, a symbol for the celebration of the 10 years of Pinoy Big Brother
On February 23, 2015, Toni Gonzaga renewed her contract with her network; in the contract signing, Gonzaga revealed that she will be back to host the show.

In May 28, 2015, the show aired a teaser introducing that the season's title will be called as Pinoy Big Brother: 737, with the three and both sevens alluding to the show's ten years.
On June 7, 2015, the show aired a teaser with the final official logo, stating that the show will return on June 20, 2015.
On February 14, 2015, the show announced that auditions would start in March 2015.

Game History - Part 1:Teen Edition
On Day 1, Ryan Bacalla, Kenzo Gutierrez, Jimboy Martin, Bailey May, Barbie Imperial and Kamille Filoteo were the first teen housemates that had entered the house. Right after, they were given a task to determine the lock combinations of the confession room in order for them to meet the 7th teen housemate, Ailah Antopina; though they failed to completely get the exact combinations, they were able to open the door locks thus freeing Ailah from the said room.
On Day 2, the second batch of housemates were introduced via ASAP 20. Enchong Dee was also introduced as a new host; and as one of the show's traditions with its hosts, Enchong had to stay inside the house. On the same day, Enchong was tasked to deliver a box, filled with things from the housemates' parents, without being noticed by them; he was successful. Afterwards, the housemates were called for an activity in the pool area, where they had to transfer 11 boxes using a big plane and ropes without getting wet; they were able to transfer 10 boxes. On that night, Bailey was called to the confession room for several violations. Right afterwards, all the remaining boys along with Barbie were called to the confession room for not wearing their lapel microphones.
On Day 3, Bailey was punished to become a human speaker box and to remain as is until Big Brother had told him otherwise. On Day 4, the housemates were given their weekly task wherein they had to create a group performance showing their individual talents within 7 minutes and 37 seconds.
On Day 8, the housemates had their first ever nomination night. The housemates who received the top three highest nomination points were then revealed by Toni Gonzaga. Barbie got the highest points, followed by Bailey and then Kamille. The three nominees head on to the activity area to face their first ever Ligtask Challenge. The nominated housemates had to shoot several balls in nets marked as 7-3-7 which were placed in a slippery inclined plane. A ball shot at 7 containers indicated that housemate gained 7 points, while at the 3 container indicates 3 points. The housemate who had garnered most points within two minutes will be saved from eviction. Kamille Filoteo eventually won the Ligtask by collecting 70 points, thus removing herself from the final set of nominees and leaving Barbie or Bailey to face eviction.
On Day 10, the housemates were given their second weekly task wherein they were required to form a design that makes the numbers 737 visible out of popsicle stick pops. Zonia was appointed to be the leader of the task.
On Day 15, Big Brother gave them their second weekly task called "OKA YONIP" in which housemates must sing the show's theme song "Pinoy Ako" backwards. If they fail, Kenzo and Franco will be automatically nominated.
On the same day, the 2nd Nomination Night took place and the second set of nominees were revealed. The week's set of nominees were Ailah Antopina, Bailey May, Ryan Bacalla, Ylona Garcia and Zonia Mejia. The five nominees competed for the Ligtask Challenge. For this week's Ligtask, the nominated housemates had to slingshot other housemates placed in movable carts onto an archery-like board. The board has a three-point system tier: the inner circle (3 points), middle circle (2 points) and the outer circle (1 point). Each of them are given three tries in order to accumulate the highest number of points. Big Brother also added that if ever two housemates had tied, none will be saved and all would face eviction. Ylona and Ailah eventually both accumulated 2 points and had a tied score, therefore all of the nominees were still up for eviction.
On Day 20, they performed their weekly task "OKA YONIP" were in they performed the reversed play of the song "Pinoy Ako". They were successful, thus receiving grocery budget for the week. On Day 21, Ailah Antopina was evicted from the house after garnering the least number of votes against Bailey May, Ryan Bacalla, Ylona Garcia and Zonia Mejia.
On Day 22, the 3rd Nomination Night occured with a twist. For the nomination night, the Positive Nomination process was used, in which the housemates must nominate for who they think must stay inside the house. The housemates who got the Top 3 lowest points will be nominees. It's not only that, but Big Brother revealed they must nominate face-to-face and they must put a medal; one with 2 points and one with 1 point, for the housemate they would nominate.
Franco Rodriguez, Jimboy Martin, Kenzo Gutierrez and Kyle Secades were the to 4 highest pointers, thus being saved in the possible eviction. On the other hand, Bailey May, Kamille Filoteo, Ryan Bacalla, Ylona Garcia and Zonia Mejia received the top 3 lowest scores and were up for eviction. The nominees then head on to compete in Ligtask where in the nominated housemates had to put foam "money" (50, 100, 500 and 1000) as much as possible into a giant piggy bank. The higher the amount, the harder it is to put into the giant piggy bank. Each of them are only given one minute to do it. Bailey managed to put a value of 1,100 in the piggy bank, erasing him from the final set of nominees and leaving Kamille, Ryan, Ylona and Zonia as the nominees for the week.
On Day 24, their 4th Weekly Task was given, but unlike the ordinary, it was given in secret. Their secret weekly task was given to Ylona and Bailey who had English as their first language. For their task they must write and learn 500 Tagalog words words in a giant dictionary, talk about their drawing, translate English words to Tagalog words, and complete reciting the Philippine Pledge of Allegiance. They successfully passed their secret weekly task, giving the house a weekly budget for their groceries.
On Day 25, the Housemates were divided into three teams for their special nominations challenge called Pinasaya Challenge. They would compete in three rounds and the team who won the most will be safe for the next week while the losing teams would face eviction next week. The Red Team, consisting of Jimboy Martin,Franco Rodriguez and Zonia Mejia won the competition, making them safe for next week's eviction. As part of their reward, they would be able to save one housemate from the losing team and they picked Bailey May.
On Day 28, the 3rd Eviction night took place. Ryan Bacalla was evicted from the house after garnering the least number of votes against Kamille, Ylona and Zonia.
On Day 29, Kamille Filoteo, Kyle Secades, Kenzo Gutierrez and Ylona Garcia who failed to win in the challenge faced the Ligtask. Kyle eventually won the ligtask which removed himself from the set of nominees and leaving two of his closest friend Kamille and Kenzo as well as Ylona facing eviction. However, despite being safe from eviction, Kyle felt uncomfortable and worrisome throughout the week
On Day 30, the housemates were given their fifth weekly task. They were grouped into two groups: the "Dream Team" composed of Kyle Secades, Ylona Garcia, Bailey May and Franco Rodriguez, and the "Pinoy Big Brothers & Sisters" composed of Jimboy Martin, Kenzo Gutierrez, Kamille Filoteo and Zonia Mejia. All of them were required to make 7 production numbers. Each of the 7 numbers must trend on Twitter for them to win the task; however, each group must still outperform one another in order wherein the winning group will win immunity for the next week's nomination. On several days during the week, Your Face Sounds Familiar 1 celebrity contestants, Nyoy Volante (while impersonating as Ariana Grande) and Jolina Magdangal as well as actor and dancer Enrique Gil entered the house to mentor the housemates for their upcoming concert. On Day 33, Kyle decided to make a voluntary exit despite winning the Ligtask challenge.
On Day 35, the two groups performed their 7 numbers for their Big-Ating Concert. The concert was attended by several ex-housemates from the franchise's three editions. After the housemates had performed their concert, Kyle had revealed to the other housemates that he had decided to make a voluntary exit and that the upcoming eviction would be cancelled. Kyle left the house on Day 36. On the same day, the result of the challenge for the two groups were revealed. It was announced that the "Dream Team" won the challenge, thus they are safe from the nominations for next week. The team also received a hundred thousand pesos which they will give to their chosen charity, the Bantay Bata 163. On the other hand, the members of "Pinoy Big Brothers & Sisters" were automatically nominated. After the announcements of the nominees, the Ligtask challenge followed. The said challenge was won by Kenzo.
On Day 37, Enchong Dee was revealed as the first celebrity houseguest of the season that will temporarily stay inside the house. He was first tasked to pretend as a human-size robot toy named E-Toy. On Day 39, the housemates were given their sixth weekly task. They must rally the volleyball 737 times without letting it fall in the water. However, Big Brother gave Jimboy, Kamille, Zonia, and Ylona a chance to decrease the number of rallies by flying on a flyboard. The number of seconds they stay in the flyboard will be decreased to the 737 rallies needed to win the task. They earned 91 seconds overall, decreasing the required rallies to 646. Throughout the days, housemates were able to use the other apps on the Big Tablet. Bailey used the Ligtas app, saving him from the next nomination. On Day 42, Zonia Mejia was evicted from the house after garnering the least number of votes against Jimboy and Kamille.
On Day 43, Big Brother revert to the normal nomination process, but he let the housemates listen to what their loved ones have to say on whom they should nominate. At the end of the process, Franco Rodriguez, Kenzo Gutierrez, Kamille Filoteo, and Ylona Garcia were up for eviction, but Kenzo won the Ligtask challenge, leaving Franco, Kamille, and Ylona to face the public vote. It was announced that the eviction will take place on Day 47.
On Day 44, Big Brother instructed the housemates to sort their personal stuff and put it in the boxes: "Akin" (Mine) – these things will be kept by the housemates, "Alay" (Give) – these will be given to people in need, and "Ayaw" (Do Not Want) – these will be thrown away as of Big Brother's discretion.
After packing, they were instructed to stay in the bedroom as the ninjas take away more furniture from the House. Big Brother gave them a challenge to live without basic necessities at hand. They have to fish these items, that were scattered throughout the garden area, from behind a barricaded fence. The bedrooms became off limits as well.
Come night time, Enchong was instructed to host a fake Big Night event. Bailey and Ylona were removed from the roster, making Franco, Jimboy, Kenzo, and Kamille as "finalists." Eventually, Franco was named the "winner"; Jimboy, Kamille, and Kenzo came in second, third, and fourth place, respectively. With this in mind, Bailey and Ylona were moved to the garden area, where they'll be living separately from the other housemates. On Day 45, both groups were given a buzzer. If the four "finalists" think they deserve to stay, they must press the buzzer; in turn, Bailey and Ylona will be "evicted". If Bailey and Ylona think they deserve to stay, they must press the buzzer; in turn, they must pick two from the "finalists" who should be "evicted", in place of them. Bailey and Ylona buzzed first, and they chose Kenzo and Kamille to be "evicted."
On Day 47, Kamille Filoteo was evicted from the house after garnering the least number of votes against Franco Rodriguez and Ylona Garcia. On Day 48, Bailey May, together with a street child, celebrated his birthday with the housemates inside the Big Brother House.
On the evening of Day 49, the final eviction took place. Right after Kamille's eviction two days prior, it was announced that there would be an open voting and the public would then vote using a Save-Evict Voting system, which means they can vote for who they want to be part of the Big Four as well as vote for the housemate they do not want to get a Big Four slot. Eventually, the Teen Big Four was finally announced and Bailey May, Franco Rodriguez, Jimboy Martin, and Ylona Garcia became Big Four finalists while Kenzo Gutierrez became the last evictee of the Teen Chapter after garnering -9.38% of the net votes.
By Day 50, the Teen Big Four exit the Big Brother house to give way for the second part of the season, the Civilian Chapter.
