He is a Muslim and belongs to a family with 17 children. He was born 14th out of 17 siblings, and was raised in a rural Mindanao life with his whole family hence having his moniker.

He entered the house as a quiet, shy boy who had a hard time speaking and conversing with fellow teen housemates as English and Filipino weren't his first language, but as the days passed by he learned to show the other side of himself, being playful and cheerful. He eventually formed friendship with most of his fellow housemates.

On Week 8, Yong found out that one of his sisters, Mona who happened to be the closest to him had eloped with her boyfriend and was pregnant. Big Brother then let Mona to stay in the house for a few days, as part of his reward.

On Week 8, after succeeding in their 4th lucky task, Yong had a family reunion held in the activity area with all of his 17 siblings and their mother. His fellow housemates helped with the preparation for the reunion.

He later celebrated his 17th birthday inside the house with his housemates.

He was among the three housemates who were never nominated for eviction through nominations, in which all of the three where among the last four teen housemates remained in the house.

On Week 19, after Kisses became the second teen finalist, Yong was left with Maymay on the nominations' list for the third and the last spot in the finals. After a week, Maymay won with 57.57% of votes while Yong got 45.43% of votes, making him the last evictee of Season 7's Teen Edition.

He returned back to the house on Week 27, with his fellow teen housemate Christian as well as two previously evicted housemates from the Celebrity and Adult category. Two of each categories would compete for the 4th Lucky Spot in order to complete the Dream Team. Yong battled against Christian in a two round competition. At the end, Yong finally got the 4th Lucky Spot for the Teens' Lucky Suns.

On Week 34, the housemates faced the Back-to-Back Nominations and Eviction. The housemates had to nominate for the last time however, they have to nominate on who they think is the most deserving to be part of the Lucky 7 Dream Team finalists that would go on to the Finale Night. The audience then only have 7 minutes of voting, the nominee who got the least number of votes would be evicted on that same night. Yong only had 1 nomination point received making him in danger for the last eviction of the series. Fortunately, he survived eviction and made her way to the Lucky 7 Dream Team that would go on to the Big Night.

The two-night finale happened at the end of Week 34. On the evening of March 4, 2017, Yong advanced to the Big Four and on March 5, 2017 he reached 3rd Place, losing to Kisses and Maymay for the final two.
