The show followed a reality-documentary series format, wherein every weekday from Mondays to Fridays, each episode features inspiring life stories of several auditionees of any age group and their journey throughout the four stages of auditions.

Timeslot

On Weekdays, the season followed its permanent primetime slot airing at 10:15 PM while its companion show, Pinoy Big Brother Gold also aired in the series' usual timeslot in the afternoon block at 5:15 PM

On Weekends, the live episodes were changed throughout the duration of the season. It originally aired at 7:30PM during Batch 1.

The House

The house was first previewed on September 7, 2018 through Laurenti Dyogi, the show's executive head's vlog, Vlog#19. In the house, he revealed the unfinished house where he stated that the inner layout of the house was scrapped and reconstructed, with only the garden and activity area remained intact. It was the first time since Pinoy Big Brother: Double Up that the series would have a total reconstruction of the house's interior layout.

Big Brother House - Modern Tropical

Designed by interior designers' Aisa Sta. Maria and Jen Soliman of J-Designs, the house for this season has a modern tropical interior design with earthy tones such as greens and browns which were the dominant colors in the house, notably in the living room and dining room. Native Tropical Filipino elements and aesthetics such as weave patterns and wood textures were also incorporated in the design. Vertical Garden, Marble and Wood Paneling also dominated the interior design creating a lush, eco-friendly vibe.

For the first time since Double Up, the house layout was reconstructed. The bedrooms were now facing and have direct access to the Pool Area. The living, dining and kitchen area now has an open plan layout. A long hallway that leads to the Confession Room, Eviction Room and Storage Room was also present. The Storage Room now becomes the first room to be entered if one entered via Facade's foyer. The Garden and the Activity Area were the only rooms in the last floor plan that remained intact. Another change done in the house are the removal of one-way mirrors. This season introduced a new way of capturing the house where they would rely solely on CCTV cameras to capture the house.

Production Changes

Overview of the Season's Format


This season will have four chapters called "Batches". The type of housemates for each batch are the following:

  • Batch 1: 8 Teen Housemates
  • Batch 2: 8 Civilian Adult Housemates
  • Batch 3: 8 Teen Housemates
  • Batch 4: 8 Civilian Adult Housemates

In every batch, The first 16 Star Hunt shortlisters called "Star Dreamers" will be introduced, but only 8 of them would earn the official housemate status and move in to the Big Brother House.

The first 8 Official Housemates to enter in every batch will be determined by a series of Housemate Selection process. Those 8 Star Dreamers who failed to become an official housemate will be sent to a special place called Camp Star Hunt where they will be staying over the weeks facing various challenges in order to prove their worth of becoming an official housemate and move to the Big Brother House.

The number of housemates inside the Big Brother House will always remain 8. It means that there will always be 8 housemates living in the house up until the end of the series. It also applies to the number of Star Dreamers living in the camp.

Each batch will last for 8 weeks and in every eviction, one official housemate will be evicted from the Big Brother House and he/she will be replaced by one Star Dreamer from Camp StarHunt who will become an official housemate. Because of this, the number of housemates in the Big Brother House will always revert back to eight every week up until the end of every batch.

Meanwhile, once a Star Dreamer moves out from the Camp Star Hunt, he/she will be replaced by a new Star Dreamer who will move in to the camp, reverting their number back to 8 as well.

On the eighth week of every batch, a "Batch Winner" will be determined among the 8 official housemates who managed to remain in the Big Brother House until Week 8.

After the four batches determine its Batch Winners, these 4 batch winners will re-enter the house once again and will compete for the "Ultim8 Batch". They will be joined by four fan-favorite housemates, one per each batch, to complete the Ultimate Chapter.

  • Ultim8 Batch: 4 Batch Winners + 4 Fan Favorites

From there, in the final two weeks of the season, the 4 Batch Winners and 4 Fan Favorites will fight their way to the top in order to become the season's Ultim8 Big Winner!

Batch 1: Teen Edition

Batch 1 is the first batch to air in Pinoy Big Brother: Otso. It aired from November 10, 2018, until January 6, 2019, lasting 8 weeks.

The batch was notable for having the first and currently the only all-female Big Four in the history of Pinoy Big Brother[6] as well as the original housemates' rivalry with Camp Star Hunt Star Dreamers.[7] Camp Star Hunt was first introduced in this batch, and remained in secret to the original official housemates until Week 5.

In this batch, Jelay Pilones, Kaori Oinuma, Karina Bautista, and Lie Reposposa emerged as the Batch Big Four, with Lie eventually declared as the Batch Winner. After almost 6 months after their batch ended, the Batch 1 Big Four returned to the house to compete with other batches' Big Four for the Ultim8 Batch.

Batch 1 Twists

  • Batch 1 Housemate Selection: Batch 1 being the batch to enter during the live season premiere, had various housemate selections for the first 8 housemates to enter. Meanwhile, the non-winning contestants were sent to the camp instead. The selection processes consisted of the following:
    • 88-Second Challenge: The first and second official housemate will be determined by the 88 Seconds Challenge. The winners from the two sets of Star Dreamers will earn the official housemate status.
    • Big Winners' Choice: 8 Big Winners, also called as "Council of 8" would sit on the jury panel and they must select one shortlist housemate. The shortlist housemate with the most votes from the panel would be an official housemate.
    • Viewer Votes: The viewers will be the ones who will determine who among the remaining unselected shortlisters will be an official housemate. The one with the most votes from the viewers would an the official housemate. This would make the number of housemates in the Big Brother to always revert back to 8, up until the 8th Week of each batch.
  • Back-to-Back Nominations and Eviction: A special change for this season was related to the show's format. Every week on the first teen batch, Nominations and Eviction occurred within a single episode, separated only by a commercial break. Upon the entry of the first adult batch, the original weekend show format returned.
  • Big Celebr8ty Challenge:Every week on the first teen batch, the housemates were paired up to compete for immunity. As part of their challenge, various celebrities would visit the house each week and participate to challenge the housemates' focus and presence of mind. The winning pair would receive immunity and will be safe from nominations. This was used in the first Teen batch of housemates and was aired every Saturday.
  • Decemversus: On Week 5, the twist was introduced where the Official housemates and Star Dreamers will fight for their slots in the house throughout the week in a series of challenges. If the official housemates lost, two of them will be evicted and will be replaced by two Star Dreamers. If they won the challenge, only one of them will get evicted at the end of the week.
  • House Players: The Star Dreamers who failed to cross-over as official housemates, along with Aljon Mendoza, were assigned by Big Brother to become House Players where they must accomplish a series of tasks to test the Teen Housemates on who are the most deserving to be part of the Big Four. P10,000 cash reward is at stake for every task given to the house players and the total amount of reward that they collected would be divided for each of the 8 Star Dreamers.
    • Ultimate House Player: On Week 7, the House Players must vote among each other who must become the "Ultim8 House Player" and will go in the Big Brother House as a mole and must pretend that he/she is the latest official housemate in order to shake things up in the house and secretly trigger the housemates.

Jungle Bells
In a jungle called Jungle Bells, there are four boxes filled with a set of animals each. Each box has a corresponding empty box found at the other side of the activity area. The housemates must transfer each of the animals in the corresponding empty boxes. After transferring they must count the animals inside each four boxes. They must correctly answer an equation which requires the quantity of each set of animals to be able to solve the equation.

The equation goes "Frog x Chicken ÷ Lizard + Eel - Snake". The correct solution must be "10 x 9 ÷ 15 + 5 - 2" while the correct answer must be "9".

The two pairs who solved the correct answer the fastest would be safe from facing eviction while the losing pairs would be nominated for eviction. Since Aljon Mendoza was ineligible to compete for being automatically nominated, Kaori got the celebrity guest, Juliana as her partner.

Notes
Note:
  • Gabby Sarmiento and Sansan Dagumampan are not official housaemates. They were voted by their fellow Star Dreamers in the Camp as the Ultimate House Players to move in to the Big Brother House and disguise themselves as official houseamtes for their House player task.
  • Previously-evicted Housemate Aljon Mendoza was sent to the Camp to participate as a House Player for the House Player Twist.
  • Missy Quino made a voluntary exit out of the Big Brother House but Big Brother transfered her to the Camp instead to follow the season's "eight people per house" format as introducing a new additional star dreamer in the camp is already over and would be unnecessary during the point in the game. She was added as a House Player for the House Player twist.
  • Rhys Eugenio got evicted on Day 54 but just like Missy, he was sent to the Camp to become a house player instead of fully evicting him out of the house.

On the Day 1, The first four male teen housemates Seth, Aljon, Art and Josh entered the house and were immediately given their first task by choosing which among the four household chores each housemate must accomplish during their first dinner in the house. On Day 2, the male teen housemates woke up with clues scattered around the house relating to the first 8 female teen star dreamers. Later that day, the first four female teen official housemates Jelay, Kaori, Lie and Karina entered the house wearing a ninja costume. They must be able to make the male teen housemates to correctly guess their hometowns.

On Day 3, the first weekly task was given by Big Brother. Their weekly task's goal is to create the PBB Otso eye logo while performing a dance. They were divided into four pairs, with each pair having a required quadrant to paint. In addition to the weekly task, it would also be their first immunity and rewards challenge where their performance would be evaluated by a panel of judges. The winning pair would earn P88,888 each and an immunity from the first eviction. They were given an entire week to practice and choreograph. While the rest of the house went well with their practice, Kaori struggled on piecing a performance with his pair, Josh.

On Day 7, the final performance of their weekly task and immunity challenge took place where former housemates Dawn Chang, Mickey Perz and Zeus Collins sat as judges to evaluate their performances. At the end of their performance, Big Brother revealed that they failed in their first weekly task. However, as an immunity challenge, the winning pair was announced to be Karina and Seth making them immune from the upcoming first eviction.

On Day 8, the first nominations and eviction took place in one night. The nominations voting put up Art, Lie and Josh as the first set of nominees. After a commercial gap, the eviction took place with Josh being the first evictee of the season. Right after Josh left, a new housemate moved in, Criza.

Batch 2: Civilian Edition

Batch 2 is the second batch to air in Pinoy Big Brother: Otso, and the first batch of adult housemates. The batch aired for 12 weeks, from January 6, 2019 to March 31, 2019. Initially following the season's 8-week Batch duration, Batch 2 was extended to four more weeks, making it the longest batch in this season.

Batch 2 is known for being the most talked-about batch[8], due to Loudre's relationship[9], Apey Obera & Mark Obera's reunion, and Mitch Talao's transgender wedding in the house. It was also notable for its physical challenges, such as the Pinoy Big Battle against Camp Star Hunt wherein they had a military training under the Armed Forces of the Philippines.

André Brouillette, Fumiya Sankai, Lou Yanong, and Yamyam Gucong were declared as the Batch Big Four, with Yamyam emerging as the Batch Winner. Batch 2 Big Four later returned for the Ultim8 Batch to compete with other Batch Big Fours.

Batch 2 is represented by Team LAYF, with green as its batch color, and #Batch2getherForever as the official codename.

Batch 2 Twists

  • All starts in Camp: Unlike Batch 1, Batch 2 started with 16 Star Dreamers in Camp Star Hunt divided into two groups. A task determined whoa among the 16 will be selected by Big Brother as the first 8 housemates to cross-over.
    • Two Camps: The premiere of Batch 2 introduced two camps, namely Camp A and Camp B for the Star Dreamers. After the first 8 Official Adult Housemates were selected on Day 60, the Camp B was closed and its remaining occupants moved to the main Camp.
  • Batch 2 Housemate Selection: For this batch, the Housemate Selection will be determined by Big Brother himself.
    • Ultim8 Star Dreamer Challenge: To challenge the Star Dreamers and to see which among them deserves the first 8 slot, Big Brother gave them a special challenge.
    • Big Brother's Choice: Unlike the first batch where the viewers determine who becomes official housemates, this batch had Big Brother himself choosing which among the eligible Star Dreamer deserved to cross-over and become an Official Housemate.
  • Star Dreamer Dismissal: During Batch 2, a Star Dreamer from the Camp Star Hunt had the risk of being dismissed and be fully eliminated out of the game. If a Star Dreamer ranked the lowest thrice, he/she would be dismissed. However, if two or more Star Dreamers tied for having three lowest rankings, the other Star Dreamers would vote on which one must be saved.
  • 8 Weeks to 88 Days extension: The original 8-week duration of Batch 2 was officially extended to 88 Days or 12 weeks.
  • Face to Face Nominations: During Week 15, all of the housemates would nominate face-to-face to each other. However, the official nominees wouldn't be revealed on the same day as the Top 3 housemates who received the highest points were eventually appointed to be leaders for their team.
    • Nomination Competition: Right after the Face to Face Nominations, the rest of the housemates randomly picked a team they would belong to. These three teams would compete in a series of challenges throughout the week. Only 1 Team would be able to win victorious and safe while the two other teams will face the Double Eviction.
  • Double Eviction: On Week 15, the 7th Week of the 1st Adult Batch, two housemates would be evicted in the 4th Adult Eviction Night.
  • Fake Finale Week: In a similar twist in Pinoy Big Brother: All In, the remaining housemates would compete in a series of challenges thinking it would be their final week in the house, several housemates would be evicted until the fake Big Four would be determined. At the end of the week, all fake evicted housemates would return to the house as nominees of the week. The fake Big Four would only receive immunity for the week. In this batch, the twist occurred on Week 16, the eight and the supposed final week of the batch and the extension was still kept secret from the housemates.
    • The Duel Week: On Week 16, the 8th Week of the 2nd Batch, the Housemates would compete in a series of Duel Challenges throughout the week. There are four duel challenges and in each duel, only two players would compete; the challenger and the challenger's choice to compete against him/her. A challenger must be the first one to volunteer and pick the housemate he wants to duel and challenged housemate couldn't refuse once picked. The winner of each duel will be safe while the loser would be evicted out of the house.
    • Fake Eviction: The twist was revealed after the losing housemate of the first duel was thought to be evicted. It was revealed that the eviction was not real and the duel is just a process for nominations thus the losing housemates would only be part of Week 16's set of nominees and not officially evicted. However, the fake evictees would stay in a special place outside the house until the Duel Challenges finally ended.
  • Pinoy Big Battle: On Week 17, Star Dreamers and Official Housemates would face a series of challenges against each other in a week of intense military training by the Armed Forces of the Philippines. If the Star Dreamers win, one of them would be crossing over for the final time, putting all Official Housemates up for eviction. If the Housemates win, there will be no eviction at the end of the week and no more cross-overs would occur.

Big Brother divided the house into three groups appointingAndré Brouillette, Joachim Regalado and William Gucong the three housemate who got the highest nomination points in the Face-to-Face Nominations as the leaders of the three groups. Each group with their assigned dance genre, must choreograph a dance performance while using an aparatus floating high up in the air.

Their performance will be scored by a set of celebrity judges. A group can attain a maximum of 24 points (8 points being the highest score given by one judge). But since Team Andre won the special task challenge given by Big Brother, they received an additional score of 4 points. The group to receive the highest total points will sit on immunity chairs, meaning they will be exempted from the upcoming double eviction for the week. On the other hand, the two groups to receive the total lowest points will be automatically nominated and will be the week's set of nominees. Since JC Gamez was exempted throughout the week for being a new cross-over, his team's performance won't affect his exemption status.

2-in-1 vote results
On Day 29, within 88 minutes after the eviction night episode, the housemates and the public voted in whether Apey & Mark should continue as a 2-in-1 housemate. The table below were the official results of the poll and was revealed on Day 28. However, Apey & Mark were earlier informed of the possible split of the two. They were briefed that after 88 minutes, the two will know the results through the lamp posts placed in the pool area. With one already lit, if another lamp post will be lit, it would mean that they will be separated as individual housemates. After the said period, the second lamp posts was lit indicating their separation from being a 2-in-1 housemate.
