An addition to the growing members of the family, the Squad Plus. The mates are just getting bigger. 
“Pinoy Big Brother Connect” alumni Andi Abaya, Kobie Brown, Haira Palaguitto, and Kyron Aguilera know fighting for their dreams doesn’t begin and stop with just their stint as housemates. After showcasing their personality and character in the country’s most famous house, the quartet has joined The Squad Plus, Dreamscape Entertainment’s teen barkada, to further develop their talents as they wait for their next big projects in showbiz.

Get to know the newly launched squadmates here:

1) Andi Abaya
“PBB Connect” 2nd Big Placer Andi Abaya has been a commercial model since she was 13 and has nurtured a passion for performing since she took acting workshops in grade school. Now 19, she has developed more talents that make her showbiz-ready, including dancing, singing, playing guitar, and acting.

As a former competitive cheerleader, Andi knows the value of taking big risks and the determination to dream even bigger. In “PBB,” she proved that confidence could be an asset. As she treads the next step in her career, this multi-talented girl-next-door knows and believes she is here to stay.

2) Kobie Brown
“PBB Connect’s” “charming striker” and 3rd Big Placer, Kobie Brown is equally passionate about sports and showbiz. His dreams to play football, however, will have to take a back seat while he explores a career in acting and music (Kobie has a soulful singing voice. In fact, his fans have been itching for him to perform on “ASAP”).

Kobie’s love for music started when he was a kid, when he would copy his idol Michael Jackson’s moves and would often be asked to sing at family dinners. He has also found a newfound passion for mixing songs after he learned to DJ in quarantine. Armed with lessons from Big Brother and his football playing days, this half-British but 100% Pinoy-at-heart is also preparing for more projects by learning to speak Tagalog fluently.

3) Kyron Aguilera
Take a look at Kyron Aguilera’s Tiktok page and YouTube vlogs and you wouldn’t think he went through depression and used to suffer from an extreme case of shyness. Becoming a competitive cyclist, though, allowed him to come out of his shell and explore his strengths.

In “PBB Otso,” Kyron learned to become independent and rely on himself to make life-changing decisions. After he got evicted, his supporters’ love and encouraging words made him realize his potential to pursue his dreams, giving him the reassurance to face the next chapter of his showbiz journey.

4) Hyra Palaguitto
Then “PBB Otso’s” youngest housemate at 16, Hyra Palaguitto has dreamed about appearing on TV since she was a kid. Since then, that goal has been her North Star and has given her the faith and focus to excel in beauty pageants, spoken work contests, and debate competitions.

Haira understands the hard work that goes into having a successful showbiz career. Right now, her livestreaming hobby has also allowed her to enhance her talent for improvisation and way with words.

Get to know Andi, Kobie, Kyron, and Haira by liking the videos and subscribing to The Squad Plus’ YouTube channel (, which regularly uploads vlogs and games featuring all the squadmates. With three million subscribers and 274 million views, The Squad Plus is one of ABS-CBN’s most subscribed and most followed channels on the video-streaming platform.

Ligo 101 in Pinoy Big Brother Connect with Justin and Jie-Ann

10:43:00 PM


Currently, there's a trending topic on the net, which is the Ligo 101 in Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) Connect, where Justin and Jie-Ann are the subjects or the object of criticism. Accordingly, this scene in the PBB Connect shows where Justin and Jie-Ann are both inside the confession room made different reactions from the netizens.

Though the topic is about proper hygiene, some of the netizens find this a little bit insulting. But others find this segment positive and educational. So, in totality, there is a mix of reactions and different interpretations of this PBB segment.

In my opinion about this is that we all have different knowledge and understanding of taking a bath. For some, simple soap and water are enough to take a bath. Or even a dip in a river or ilog is their way of taking a bath. And while others are lavish in their hygiene routine. On this PBB segment, it is probably about the interpretation. As I understand it, both are being taught in this situation, Jie-ann for not knowing most of the presented hygiene kits like the luffa or sponge and the bath gel. I remember my younger days in the province, there are no luffa or bath gel, only "batong panghilod (round stone for scrubbing) at sabong pangligo (bath soap)." While for Justin, it's about teaching, not only about the names of the hygiene kit but also to understand other people. Not all have access to these things.

You can check out some of the reactions and comments on Twitter about PBB Connect Ligo 101.

So, how about you, what is your opinion?
