Task History

Week Day(s) Task Description Result
1 1-3 On launch night, after the housemates noticed eleven platforms in the pool area, Big Brother greeted them and announced that they were not housemates, but rather houseguests. They were assigned a special task to become one of the eleven "official housemates" and entice the other housemates to do the same in a meaningful way. They were given an hour to complete this task. In reality, they were all housemates. This was a test to determine their commitment and willingness to stay inside the house. Yes!
1- On Day 1, Big Brother assigned Dingdong and Patrick a series of secret tasks to keep their relationship hidden until further notice. At the live launch, they were told that only one of them could enter; Patrick chose to enter the house. First, Big Brother gave Patrick the key and a letter to open the pool area. Then, Big Brother tasked Patrick with becoming a "official housemate" on their special task so that his partner Dingdong could enter the house.

Trivia

  • After 19 years of Pinoy Big Brother, Gen11 is the first season without Toni Gonzaga as its main host, after her surprise departure from hosting the series during Pinoy Big Brother: Kumunity Season 10. Since Gonzaga's departure from the show, former co-host Bianca Gonzalez has taken up the role as the show's main host. Consequently, this would be the first season to premiere with Gonzalez as the main host.
  • This is the first season after ABS-CBN decided not to renew the lease of the extended lot of the Big Brother house compound, resulting to the demolition of the compound's extended backlot and production area, mainly used in the past as the series' Activity Area and its second house, respectively, and studio offices for the production staff. The main house area used since Season 1 remained, reverting back to its original size before the 2007 expansion.
  • For the first time in Pinoy Big Brother history, Gen11 featured a gay couple as part of its cast.
