It was a tearjerker Saturday episode for PBB as Alex Gonzaga bids farewell to her housemates. After 7 weeks of stay inside the PBB, Alex has finally left the house.
PBB premiered with Gonzaga as one of the co-hosts but everyone were surprised when she was announced as the last person to go inside the house as a celebrity house guest.
Her stay was extended for a week after the crucial task given to her housemates. In their ‘Yes We Can’ challenge, they all said No when asked if they want Alex to leave the house even if that means no budget for a week.
It was her closest friends, Michele and Fifth who were the first to find out that Alex will leave the house. They asked Kuya to throw a send off party for Alex which Kuya accepted with a condition that they will ignore Alex for 2 days.
All of them were in tears while giving their message for Alex. Fifth said:
“Mamimiss kita kasi pareho tayo ng utak, nagkakaintindihan tayo sa mga jokes, sa mga biro.” “Tapos pag may problema, automatic, ikaw ang tatakbuhan ko. Maraming salamat dahil dinagdagan mo ‘yung listahan ng kaibigan, pamilya ko.
She also gave her messages to the housemates and mentioned Fifth as the ‘guy friend’ she really wants to have as they really jive together. She even said their plan to hang out when they’re back to the outside world.
Fifth became the closest friend of Alex inside the house. They are usually seen together laughing and cracking jokes. They really just click together, so much, that people outside the house coined their name to form a loveteam called Filex and tagged them as Mommy and Daddy Turtle.
Before leaving, housemates serenaded Alex and gave her flowers. She hugged each one of them, giving Fifth a second hug and a high five right before she entered the confession room.
She was welcomed by her sister Toni Gonzaga with a tight hug, and other “PBB” hosts Bianca Gonzalez, John Prats, and Robi Domingo.
We welcome Alex to the outside world with open arms. But surely, with how Alex made her housemates and the viewers happy with her craziness and her effortless humor, Big Brother’s house will not be the same without her. And “Elevator Girl” has some pretty big shoes to fill.
Alex will soon be joining “PBB All In Uber” with Bianca Gonzalez, John Prats, and Robi Domingo to start her hosting duties.
