Prior to the live premiere, the first six housemates were introduced in three different programs. Axel and Jane were introduced during ASAP 19, while Cess, Nichole, and Chevin were introduced in Buzz ng Bayan.
The remaining thirteen housemates were introduced in the pilot show, including the unexpected eighteenth housemate, which happened to be the season's newly added co-host, Alex Gonzaga. All housemates were welcomed through a pool party, after which, they were allowed to tour the house. They got their luggages at the storage room. Alex's luggage contained only a pair of underwear inside. The following day, Big Brother gave them their first weekly task, "Hating Kapatid", wherein they have to divide among themselves equally the household chores, the food, and the shower time, among other things. They were only given five mistakes to do the task. Hours after Big Brother gave the weekly task, the housemates had already made two mistakes: one for not equally sharing their lunch and another for the chips they ate.
The following evening, Big Brother tasked Jacob to look for one housemate whom he thinks needs singing lessons. He picked Manolo. If Jacob can teach Manolo sing, he and the other housemates will share Japanese food for lunch in his upcoming birthday. He was also instructed to sing a song with Manolo. They sang Sunday Morning in the morning of Day 4 as a wake-up call. Fourth and Fifth updated Big Brother the next day on their secret task. In the evening, the housemates were called to the living room to unlock a padlocked chest. Inside it are pictures and gifts from their respective siblings. They later shared who their siblings are and how important they are to them. Afterwards, Fourth and Fifth continued their investigation.
On Day 5, Big Brother gave Fourth, Jayme, and Ranty a special task that is related to Labor Day. Each of them had to teach one housemate some skills from their respective professions. Afterwards, as part of the Hating Kapatid weekly task, each housemate has to hold a tray of 18 glasses for ten minutes. They were only given three times to make mistakes. Maris, Loisa, and Cess all failed this task, therefore a pie was removed from the screen. Big Brother told all the housemates in the confession room the next day that the remaining two pies will be removed from the screen in order for them to watch out for the mistakes they will incur. Later that day, Aina was tasked to choreograph a new dance routine using the modified, Reo Brothers' version of "Pinoy Ako" theme song. The dance routine, which was part of the weekly task, was performed in the evening of Day 7 during the live show. Big Brother announced that only one piece of pie was left and that for the first part of their weekly task, they were successful. However, he announced that the second part of the weekly task was actually Fourth and Fifth's special task. The twins said in front of the other housemates that they suspect Jayme and Maris as siblings. Big Brother announced that other than the twins, there are no other siblings inside the house. Therefore, he declared the whole task as a failure. Afterwards, Big Brother called Alex to the confession room and told her that she is not an official housemate but only a houseguest.
The housemates receive their second weekly task, #SELFIEMATES, where their goal is to take 3,000 selfies of themselves under rules set by Big Brother. All selfies shall be taken by using a big hand that can hold a smartphone. The roulette shall determine how many housemates or who among them shall be included in the selfie. All selfies should only be taken on the stage and with the hand, but Michele initially disregarded this rule saying that it is easier to make selfies with few people without using the hand. However, since all selfies should be taken by using the hand, all selfies taken without it will not be counted.
During lunch on Day 9, Axel, along with other male housemates were about to prepare some chips to be included in the meals due to the whole group's lack of food situation. However, Michele reprimanded Axel's group not to eat those chips in order to save food; Alex seconded Michele's idea. When Axel was about to stand up from the dining table, Alex began asking others to eat the chips, which made err of Axel of being left out and stopped of his cravings. Axel immediately walked out while Alex and others continued eating the chips. Later at the pool, Axel shared his emotions to other housemates. A series of talks with Big Brother followed leading to confrontations of Axel and Alex, and of Axel and Michele. Both female housemates later asked their apologies to Axel. Meanwhile, Alex picked Fifth to become her co-host in her talk show. In relation to the talk show, Alex asked Fifth on what topic they should make as headline. Fifth responded that they should talk about the issue about the chips. Alex asked details on who were involved in the said issue and asked for clarifications if she was involved. Fifth suggested that she should ask the other housemates instead. On Day 10, Alex and Fifth started their talk show. Nichole, the first housemate they interviewed, shared how close she was to her mother, Phoemela Baranda. Later that day, Alex and Michele were told of Nichole's picture showing her middle finger, and talked to her about it. Big Brother let her realize that she should not take photos of herself that may be offensive to others.
Big Brother introduced two twists in taking selfies. On Day 11, a dice will be tossed after spinning the roulette. The face on top will determine what the housemates will wear for the selfie; a "Free" face allows them to wear anything. Big Brother called Nichole, Aina, Axel, Alex, and Chevin to the confession room for lapel violations and sleeping after the wake-up call. As punishment, he declared all selfies taken before his announcement will not be counted, and the five housemates will only be the ones to continue their weekly task for that day. If one of them steps down from the platform, all selfies taken for the day will not be counted.
On Day 12, the roulette was removed since all housemates will be included in the selfies from this day. A colored ball to be drawn from a box will indicate the platform that all housemates will stand on when taking selfies. Later that day, Big Brother declared their weekly task a success after validating 3,357 of their selfies. Big Brother informed them on Day 13 that they will participate in their first nomination later that day. Alex was also able to nominate, but nominations given to her were not included in the final tally since she was only a houseguest. Chevin and Maris were declared the two nominees that were nominated by the housemates the next evening. Loisa was the third nominee; she got the highest percentage of public votes.
In the morning of Day 15, Big Brother welcomed Gi, Fe and Teresa, the mothers of Manolo, Joshua and Vickie respectively. They were tasked first to clean the rooms of the housemates. Only the three nominees shall see the mothers and help them in their tasks. When these tasks succeed, Manolo, Joshua, and Vickie will have a chance to talk with their mothers and 50 percent of their weekly budget shall be given to them. In the evening, Big Brother informed Loisa that she will be helping Joshua's mother, who does not know how to cook, in cooking Joshua's breakfast. The following evening, Maris and Loisa were tasked by Big Brother to bring Joshua in the picnic area without being noticed by the other housemates. Unknown to Joshua, his mother was hiding behind the camera mirrors of the picnic area. At the picnic area, Big Brother asked Joshua to dance Pandango sa Ilaw. After his dance, he met his mother. Meanwhile, Manolo's and Vickie's mothers were tasked to cook the housemates' dinner for the following evening while the housemates are shooting for their webisodes in the picnic area. Chevin instructed Maris to tell the other housemates that he was in the confession room and that they are not allowed to leave the picnic area without Big Brother's instruction. Later that evening, a series of pranks was made by the boys and the girls to each other until the following day, which led to some confrontations. The next day, Big Brother talked to all the housemates in the confession room and reminded them of the law in the rulebook about cleanliness. He also told them that the teen housemates should not be following the older housemates and that all forms of jokes should have limitations.
Sandara Park entered the Big Brother house on Day 19 as a celebrity houseguest during Über. Prior to this, Big Brother made unexpected changes for their weekly task. The setting of the housemates' third webisode was changed to a Koreanovela. Sandara Park, who was also a houseguest in the first Celebrity season, was amazed at the changes made to the house since then. Later, the housemates told her role in the third webisode. Park left the house the same day.
The first, second, and third webisodes were uploaded on Days 17, 18, and 20 respectively. Before the eviction night on Day 21, Big brother declared that the videos accumulated 1,400,305 views, resulting in the success of their weekly task. Chevin was later evicted. Axel and Manolo were given automatic nomination after violating a rule concerning contact with the outside world during Gi's visit. Cess was also involved in the violation, but since she committed other violations, like writing secret messages, whispering, moving furniture and not wearing her lapel, hence, Big Brother forcibly evicted her from the House. Alex, who also had the same violation as Manolo and Axel's, will receive a punishment, since she is only a houseguest. Daniel Matsunaga entered the House as the third celebrity housemate and the eighteenth official housemate.
The housemates faced the second nomination round. Later that night, Aina, the publicly nominated housemate, and Michele, who topped the nomination from the housemates, completed the list of nominees. Daniel was tasked to lay on the bed floating at the center of the pool that morning and he can only stand up if the housemates were able to guess how to wake him up: all adult housemates together should kiss him. Big Brother told Daniel that he will meet every housemate one by one at the "Magic Corridor." He will give each housemate a ball with a clue to the event they will participate later that evening, which was a pool party. Big Brother announced to the teen housemates that evening that they will have a pool party, with unlimited food and dancing for all and unlimited drinks for adults only. However, teen housemates were given a curfew. After the curfew, the adult housemates started to drink. The housemates were given a new weekly task the next day, which was similar to the one given in the second season. Except for Daniel, Big Brother asked all housemates to stand first beside the weighing scale to see their initial weight upon entering the house. They will later sit down in it to know their current weight. Jacob was proclaimed as the heaviest housemate at 166 pounds. The eight housemates who weighed heavier than when they entered their house shall lose weight with the help of Daniel. At the end of the week, their weight should be at most their initial weight prior to their entry into the house. Big Brother told the eight housemates who got heavier that they shall lose at least 42 pounds. He also instructed them not to do crash diets.
Big Brother announced on Day 24 that only the two housemates who lost the least weight will continue their weekly task. The process for the third nomination will also be affected. Only Loisa, whose weight did not change, and Nichole, whose weight lowered by only one pound, will continue the weekly task. The housemates will choose to support either Loisa or Nichole in their task. At the end of the week, the housemate who loses less weight and her supporters will be the only housemates to be nominated for the third nomination. Fourth, Joshua, Aina,Jayme, Axel, Vickie, Ranty, and Alex chose Loisa, while Manolo, Jacob, Vickie, Fifth, Jane, Michele, Daniel, and Maris chose Nichole. The following evening, Big Brother gave the housemates a last chance to change their teams, but none changed their teams. At the weigh-in, Nichole weighed 125.6 pounds, a loss of 1.8 percent. Loisa weighed 110.6 pounds, a loss of 2.1 percent. The following day, Big Brother declared their weekly task a success because both Nichole and Loisa lost at least 2 percent of their weight. Loisa weighed 107 pounds, a loss of 5.3 percent from 113 pounds. Nichole weighed 122.8 pounds, a loss of 4 percent from 129 pounds. Loisa's team was safe from the third nomination round. The nominated housemates, including Alex, had an open forum regarding the things they don't like about each other. At the live eviction night on Day 28, Axel was evicted.
Big Brother tasked the regular, teen, and celebrity housemates to rank another group from the most important to the least important housemate. The celebrities ranked the regulars; the teens ranked the celebrities; and the regulars ranked the teens. After the nomination night, Fourth, Michele, and Maris decided after a debate by Vickie, Manolo, and Jane that the teens were the least important group of housemates; due to this Big Brother made the teens serve as servants to the regular and celebrity housemates. They will also be the only ones to do the household chores. The BBN nomination system was temporarily stopped for the third nomination night. In the live nomination night, Jacob, Jane and Maris were declared nominees for eviction. The teens immediately started with their chores on Day 30. Vickie, Jayme, Jacob, Michele, Alex, and Aina, who committed lapel violations, were not allowed to lie down on any furniture or on the floor for 24 hours.
Manolo, Vickie, and Jane were appointed leaders of the new weekly task, Lapislide, with a goal of making towers out of 15,000 sharpened pencils and rolling a ball into it so that it shoots into a small ring. Vickie decided that the teen housemates will be the first to do the task. Big Brother prohibited the housemates from using the couch after Fifth was made by Daniel to exercise on it. Jayme was prohibited from entering in the activity area that day because she wrote using one of the pencils. Fourth and Aina, who were late in entering the activity area, returned to the house; but since they sat on the couch, all housemates were not allowed to sit except for the teens. The six lapel violators were each given a wooden chair on Day 31. They can sit only on this chair and this should not be separated from their body. This punishment was later revoked. Daniel was allowed earlier by Big Brother to become a servant in order to help the teens.
The sharpener was repaired as the weekly task was resumed for the regular housemates, including Ranty, who broke the handle the previous day. The celebrities took over later; then were followed by the teens. The three leaders were later given three hours to sharpen 3,000 pencils at night in order to earn more sharpeners; for accepting the task, they will also carry the responsibility to the task and only the three of them will work on it. Maris was tasked by Big Brother the following morning to count how many pencils Manolo, Vickie, and Jane had sharpened. Only less than 2,200 pencils were sharpened; thus, their task was considered a failure. However, due to the three's hardwork, Big Brother still gave them extra sharpeners. They were asked by Big Brother to whom they will pass the weekly task; they decided not to pass it to anyone and keep the responsibility to themselves.
Big Brother told the teens on Day 33 that he will lift their task as servants if they will clean the picnic area within the duration of the show's theme song. The teens finished the last task and was freed their task as servants. As a reward to their hardship, Nichole received two cup noodles; while Maris and Joshua received guitars from Yeng Constantino. Instructed by Big Brother, Fifth played as Daniel Padilla visiting the house; this served as Loisa's reward. With the approval of Big Brother, Ranty, Michele, and Daniel volunteered to help Manolo, Vickie, and Jane in sharpening the pencils. The next morning, Manolo received a visit of his dog as a reward.
Confrontations arose as the housemates had little time to finish the task. Five hours before the deadline on Day 34, Big Brother told the housemates that everybody can now help with the task. After the 5 remaining hours, the housemates failed to finish the weekly task. However, Big Brother gave the housemates a chance to receive 50% of the weekly budget if they will be able to shoot a ball using the towers they built; they were successful.
The housemates were again tasked to do a debate, but this time through a rap battle. At the live eviction night on Day 35, Jacob, Jane, and Maris sang "Leaving on a Jet Plane", a song they dedicated to themselves. Jacob was later evicted.
Aina, Ranty, and Joshua were nominated by the housemates on Day 36. However, in a twist called Insta Save, Big Brother gave them a chance to remove themselves from the list of nominees. At the picnic area, they have to reach for a key that will unlock their prison cell while they are locked inside it. To reach the key, they need to use only the items inside each of their cells. Whoever unlocks them first will be instantly removed from the list of nominees. They were also given the chance to ask for help to the other housemates; Aina picked Alex, Joshua picked Loisa, and Ranty picked Jane. Ranty was the first to get the key, but he did not open his cell and gave way to Joshua to gain the Insta Save. Joshua was then removed from the list of nominees.
On Day 37, Big Brother gave them their weekly task, Yes All We Can. The housemates should accept all challenges given to them by Big Brother and they can say "No" only for a maximum of three times. As part of the weekly task, Jane, Loisa, and Vickie allowed themselves to be tanned, which will lead into a beauty pageant later that day. It was judged by Joshua, who was also tanned by the girls. After noticing what Joshua, Jane, and Loisa were doing, Ranty and Aina were tasked to compose a song about teen love, which the regular and celebrity housemates sang.
Nichole, Fourth, Maris, Jayme, and Ranty were offered a "special breakfast" on Day 38, which were actually fried frogs and silkworms. Nichole was the only one of them to say "No". Ranty later brought out of the storage room the silkworms, which everyone had eaten. Jayme was later asked if she wanted to pose as a model for a nude painting. She initially said "Yes", and chose Ranty, Michele, and Daniel to join her. But after Jayme heard his father's opinion and shared it to the other three, they all said "No". Big Brother earlier allowed the housemates to sharpen pencils, which were donated to two public schools in Quezon City.
A problem arose with the cheese in the House on Day 39. As the supply of cheese was about to disappear, someone opened another bottle of cheese. Some argumentations occurred regarding this. All housemates talked in the living room the next day about two issues; resolving the cheese problem and cleanliness of the windows and the bathroom. The latter sparked an argument between Aina and Fifth after the latter became irritated of how Aina told her opinion. Alex, Fifth, and Manolo later, opened up an investigation, after which they deduced the suspects to be Jayme, Michele, and Aina. Fourth and Fifth accepted to have a time to bond with each other in the storage room; this allowed them to share their thoughts with one another. However, this caused them to get drunk.
The housemates decided on Day 41 if they want Alex to exit the house. Alex herself wanted to stay inside the House, and she felt that the housemates will want her to stay. But the housemates' decision was part of the weekly task. The teens and the elderly housemates decided not to evict Alex from the house. Alex will remain in the house, but their weekly task failed. In the live eviction night on Day 42, Aina was evicted after garnering 32.47% of votes, which was less than the 67.53% of votes for Ranty.
On Day 44, each of the housemates were called in the confession room and were asked by Big Brother in who was their best friend in the house. They were given 10 seconds to bring his or her chosen housemate to the confession room. Once they are inside the confession room, they are required to wear a friendship bracelet. The bracelets were removed after all of them, except for Loisa who was sick, have removed thousands of domino bricks in the pool for 20 minutes. In the afternoon, Big Brother gave the weekly task wherein they need to create an artwork that depicts the Philippine flag and the word "Philippines" using the dominoes they collected from the "best friend task". Aired live that night, Big Brother announced the All Out twist wherein they will participate in several challenges in order to save themselves from receiving an automatic nomination. They faced their first challenge after the announcement. As advised by the show's medical team, Loisa was again not allowed to participate in the challenge due to fever. The first challenge was won by Nichole, earning her an immunity for that week. On Day 45, Loisa was cleared of her sickness and joined the second All Out challenge. Nichole and Alex did not take part in it. In this second challenge, each team has to make the longest possible vertical line in the picnic area. Maris, Vickie, and Daniel won the challenge, with their tower measuring 212.4 feet, and gained immunity.
Alex was given by Big Brother a special All Out task on Day 46; she needs to act out a given scene every time the living room monitor will be turned on. At stake on her special task is a ₱100,000 cash prize for a chosen charity. Middle of Alex's task, Zanjoe Marudo and Pokwang visited the housemates. Meanwhile, the remaining non-immune housemates faced their third and last challenge. They were tasked to pass a pingpong ball through an obstacle course. The first to do it were Fifth, Fourth, and Manolo finishing the challenge within 2 minutes and 38 seconds. Jane, Jayme, and Joshua were the second group to do the challenge; they failed to beat the time of the first group. They were also the first three housemates to be automatically nominated. The last group, composed of Loisa, Michele, and Ranty, followed. They were also unable to beat the first group's time indicating that they were the last three housemates to be automatically nominated.
On Day 47, Big Brother told Michele and Fifth that Alex was just a houseguest and that she will be leaving the house by the end of the week. The two of them divulged this to the other housemates; they also told their plan of holding a party for her. They thought of not noticing Alex the next day. For two days, the housemates ignored Alex; with this they were able to get the send-off party for her at the picnic area the next day.
Meanwhile, Ranty, Loisa, and Jane were tasked to sit on each of their own islands in the swimming pool the next day. They are not allowed to leave this island and only Alex can deliver them their needs. Only the three of them will be allowed to communicate with Alex. Later that night, they used only one of the islands, but due to heavy rains that night, they were allowed to step off the island. They were later transferred to the activity area. After the roof was completed, they were transferred back to the island. Alex was given time the next day to "rescue" the three housemates using a life saver within one minute; she was successful.
Meanwhile, many of the dominoes have fallen and the other housemates had to exert extra effort to complete the artwork. Many of these have been caused by mishandling some dominoes, which, when fall, caused the succeeding dominoes to fall also. In the evening of Day 48, to finish the weekly task, they were tasked to do a domino fall; they failed to finish the task after three chances. In the live episode aired on Day 49, Alex exited the house. In the same night, Cheridel entered the house.
On Day 50, Jane and Joshua were confronted by the adult housemates with the special relationship they had. Big Brother also asked the both of them separately on what their true feelings are. On Day 52, Big Brother gave the housemates their weekly task. While doing their weekly task, Bea Alonzo and Paulo Avelino visited the house to distract them. On the evening, Cheridel formally entered the house. She was tasked to know the housemates inside a specially made "elevator". On Day 53, Maris was tasked to teach the housemates a series of ballroom dances. Unknown to her, the task was a test of their Freeze task. In the middle of their ballroom practice and while they were not moving, Geo Garcia, Joshua's father, visited the house. A similar event also happened when Franky, Jason Abalos (Vickie's boyfriend), and Eric Rushton (Vickie's dad) visited the house on Day 54. Abalos was tasked to bring Vickie's letter from her dad. Vickie later read the letter and realized a lot about her identity. The contents of the letter were not disclosed for privacy reasons.
On Day 55, Ranty and Vickie were tasked to teach the housemates about beauty pageants, as the two of them are products of the same. However, in a twist, all housemates had to cross-dress for the pageant, with males to be taught by Vickie and females by Ranty. Ranty and Vickie will be the judges. Big Brother also told the both of them that he will let two photographers document the said event. Unknown to the housemates and most especially to Ranty, one of the photographers is her mother, Lydia. Michele and Joshua won the pageant for the males and females respectively as their alter egos Michael and Josie. At the end of the event, Big Brother froze the housemates. Seizing the moment and as instructed by Big Brother, Ranty's mom revealed herself. Alex Gonzaga also visited the house again after saying that she missed the housemates. She was able to talk with the housemates while they were frozen.
On Day 56, Big Brother announced that for the third straight week, the housemates' weekly task failed because they committed four mistakes, which was more than the maximum limit of three. Later that night, Ranty was the first housemate to be evicted for the All Out twist.
On Day 57, Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla visited the housemates and filmed Padilla's new song, Unlimited. In the live episode aired that evening, as part of the All Out twist, Jayme and Michele were evicted. On Day 60, the list of nominees were announced. As part of the All In Nominations, all housemates who received a nomination point regardless of the number of points received will be automatically be part of the nominees. With the said twist, Daniel, Fifth, Jane, Joshua, Loisa, and Nichole were nominated. The Insta Save was again implemented this week with the non-nominated housemates helping the nominees. Non-nominees were required to pick the nominated housemates they would want to help by kicking a football into a 'goal' placed for each of the six nominees. Daniel was picked by Maris, Fifth by Fourth, Joshua by Vickie, Loisa by Cheridel, and Nichole by Manolo. Only Jane had no partner. In the Insta Save challenges, under one hour, each pairs had to shoot a table tennis ball to their partners, thread a table of needles, and form the 'SAVE' word using puzzle pieces. The first to complete, or the first to be able to do the challenges within the allotted time wins the Insta Save. In the end, Jane won.
The housemates, meanwhile, practiced for their Dancing Football weekly task, which was given on Day 59. Daniel was assigned as their leader. The next days were spent on practicing the dance routine. One time, they put the football in the goal. However, these resulted in muscle pains in their feet. On Day 62, they performed the routine in the picnic area. They were given five chances to perform the routine, however, they failed after five attempts. So for the fourth straight week, the housemates failed their weekly task. On Day 63, Joshua and Loisa were saved from eviction.
- The first ever season in the history of Big Brother that Civilians, Teenagers and Celebrities will live inside one house and compete for the grand prize.
- The twist was initially criticized because many people thought Celebrities would have the advantages but as the series went on, the criticisms waned down.
- The regular civilian adult housemates were dominated the house with 10 civilian housemates, while the celebrities were the least in the house, with only 4 celebrity housemates.
- However, despite their large population inside the house, the Civilians were the first to be evicted. The civilian housemates were evicted consecutively for seven eviction nights.
- Despite not being a Civilian edition, it was still considered as the fifth series due to the fact that Special Editions and Civilian Editions use the same numbering order together.
|Civilian||1 · 2 · 3 · 4|
|Combined||5 · 6 · 7 · 8|
|Celebrity||1 · 2|
|Teen||1 · 2 · 3 · 4|
