Pinoy Big Brother: Celebrity Edition 1 is the first celebrity edition and the second overall season of Pinoy Big Brother.

It officially began on February 5, 2006 and ran for 56 days, ending on April 1, 2006, and were hosted by Toni Gonzaga and Mariel Rodriguez.

After 56 days, Keanna Reeves emerged as the season's Big Winner, becoming the first celebrity to win the title.

Background

Casting

A special casting was held for this season wherein the final 14 were eventually chosen. According to show's director, Laurenti Dyogi, the casting calls began in December 2005. The casting was opened to celebrities who wanted to audition, but there were also some celebrities who were invited to be part of the show.

The celebrities who auditioned include athletes, stand-up comedians, ramp and commercial models, musicians, and TV personalities.

In addition, aside from the nationwide famous Manila-based celebrities, there were also regionally famous celebrities from Visayas and Mindanao who became part of the cast.[1]

Hosts

Initially, Willie Revillame, Toni Gonzaga and Mariel Rodriguez reprised their hosting roles in Pinoy Big Brother. However, due to an unexpected tragedy in Willie's afternoon variety show Wowowee, he immediately decided to leave Pinoy Big Brother a day before the live premiere.

After his sudden departure, Toni Gonzaga who originally narrated the weeknight primetime episodes last season, took over Willie's role as the main presenter of the series and hosted the live eviction and nomination nights as well.

TV Host and Myx VJ, Luis Manzano became a replacement male co-host for Willie Revillame.

Premiere Delay

The series was originally scheduled to start a day before on February 4, 2006 but due to the Wowowee ULTRA stampede tragedy that happened earlier that day, the management rescheduled it the following day, February 5, 2006.

Theme Song

In this season, the show introduced a new theme song specially used for celebrity seasons of the series. "Sikat Ang Pinoy" (lit. Filipinos Are Famous) was first performed by Sam Milby and Toni Gonzaga on the season's live premiere. It has been used throughout the season, but the original theme song of the series Pinoy Ako was still occasionally used.

Prizes

The prizes at stake cost ₱5 million, which includes ₱1 million pesos for the winning housemate, another ₱1 million for the winner's chosen charity, ₱1 million for the charity of Big Brother's choice and a condominium unit worth ₱2 million.

Production Changes

  • Shorter Duration: Unlike the previous season which had 112 days, this season would only air for 56 days.
    • Weekly Evictions: Because of its short duration, the evictions would take place weekly, as opposed to last season's evictions which took place every other week.

The House

  • Garden Area
  • Kitchen & Dining
  • Living Room
  • Bedroom
  • Diary Room
Back to Basics

This season retained the floor plan used in Pinoy Big Brother 1.

The concept for this series is going back to basics. On the first day the Big Brother House initially had no furniture or appliances, with the exception of the plasma TV and the refrigerator. Part of this series' concept was forcing the housemates to use a stick for brushing their teeth, clay jars and an outdoor kitchen for cooking, bare hands for eating, and a water pump for potable water. All pieces of furniture provided to them were even made of bamboo.

After two weeks, Big Brother lifted the "Back to Basics" concept after seeing the housemates adapting to the said lifestyle, despite difficulties. The Forbidden Room, a pink-walled room with beds and mattresses reserved only for eviction nominees, became the ladies' bedroom, while the bamboo beds in the eventual men's bedroom were suddenly covered with mattresses. Earlier, they were provided with a microwave oven, an electric stove, utensils, and some toothbrushes and were allowed to use the swimming pool at any time, as well as wearing footwear indoors. Later, sofas replaced the bamboo benches in the living room.

Season Twists

  • Celebrity Housemates: For the first time in Pinoy Big Brother and throughout Asia, the house will be filled with Celebrities coming from various fields of entertainment. Aside from competing to win the cash prize for their own, they will also play for a charity they chose to help.
  • Back to Basics: The celebrity housemates entered in an empty house, with only the primary necessities present. The twist ended on Week 3, by finally having furniture and appliances inside the house.

Trivia 

  • This is the first-ever season where a housemate publicly came out as a homosexual. The 80s Filipino matinee idol, Rustom Padilla revealed to his fellow housemate, Keanna Reeves during a private conversation that he is gay.
  • This is the first season to have a housemate to voluntarily exit before the first eviction making the first eviction night be canceled.
  • This is the season with the oldest Pinoy Big Brother housemate to enter at age 58. It also had the first disabled housemate to enter Pinoy Big Brother.
  • Since the stampede that happened on February 4, 2006, the show Wowowee was taken off the air. To take over the time slot it left behind, Pinoy Big Brother aired a special noontime edition called Pinoy Big Brother Celebrity Challenge, in which the celebrity housemates play mini-games for charities of their choice, inclusive only to the housemates' charities. It started on Saturday, February 11, 2006. It aired its last episode on March 4, 2006, having raised a total of P1,440,000 for the various charities.
