Big Brother Wiki

Yuri Okawa was a housemate on Pinoy Big Brother: Double Up

A highly opinionated housemate, Yuri mostly had great relationships with the other members of the house, most notably with her female housemates. Because of this, she was able to evade both nominations and evictions during the first few weeks in the house.

On Day 57, Big Brother unleashed a twist called Bagyong Isa (roughly translated to "Typhoon Unite"), which involved a merge between the two houses where one housemate would be evicted by the end of the week on Day 64 and that housemate would not be able to join the merge. The twist also employed the Vote to Evict system for the first time ever in the Pinoy Big Brother franchise, in which the housemate who got the highest number of votes would be evicted.

This twist proved to be detrimental to Yuri's survival in the game as she received the highest voting percentage of 26.52%, narrowly beating fellow original House B housemate Mariel, who garnered 22.94% of the eviction votes.

She got evicted on Day 64 and is the first ever Pinoy Big Brother housemate who got evicted by the Vote to Evict system.

Yuri spent most of her life in Japan. She is fluent in five languages namely English, Nihonggo, Spanish, Portuguese, and Filipino. Growing up in Japan was tough for Yuri. Her mother married a Japanese, and this prevented her from seeing her father. Yuri was devastated when her father passed away a few years ago. The tragedy pushed her into a life of parties and vices. She fell in love with a Portuguese man, but their relationship was short lived. Yuri later found love with a Brazilian guy.
