PBB Big Winner Maymay Entrata: Deserved or not?

Personally, I hoped that Tanner Mata ang maging  Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) Winner.  The format should be like the PBB 737 were there winners for adult (regular) and teens. But since the show follows the same voting method (which is through text votes), it’s not surprising that big 4 came from Teen Edition (sino ba mahilig sa ganyan pa). I think that’s the only concern here. So questioning Marydale “Maymay” Entrata as the PBB Lucky 7 Big Winner is ...  

Why not MayMay Entrata?


Matagal na akong hindi nanood ng TV (since 2008), nasanay na ako na ako pa-video-video clips na lang sa Youtube. But it happened that the Teen edition hooked me and my OFW sister watched the regular edition (maka-Aura Azarcon) so parang nag-jive at na-magnify ang panonood ko. I watched the last three weeks religiously sa TV. Anyway…

Since I’m also into Youtube, I am aware too sa mga pro and anti-comments lalo na  matindi ang laban between Kisses and Maymay fans ( I think hindi naman affected ang mag-BFF).  Well without this fandom hysteria, the favoritism, charity, and what I mentioned "should be separate winners" issues – I don’t also see any reasons why The Wacky Go Lucky of Cagayan de Oro shouldn’t be the PBB Big Winner

Let’s say Maymay Entrata is pretentious 

–    I watched the  episodes of Follow  Lucky 3 Teens where Edward (La Union), Maymay (Camiguin and Cagayan de Oro), and Kisses (Masbate) went to their home towns.  Based on the video clips, they all had many supporters and I could say Kisses had more. The 17-year old teen is a sweet and lovely young lady who’s very brave to admit everything about her feelings. Sinong hindi hahanga di ba?  I like Kisses’ adorable sweetness as well as Edward’s intellect and kindness. 

On the other hand, what I noticed with Maymay’s homecoming was her many friends. She introduced her board mates and co- choir members, who seemed to be very close to her.  You could see that they’re not pretending in their warmth welcome.  Dito ang masasabi ko, having many friends tell something about the person. And friends really see the best and worst or the lie and  the truth. Ang nakakilala  talaga sa iyo ay kaibigan mo e at hindi madali magkaroon ng mga totoong kaibigan. Hindi ka dapat dumidepende lang basta sa fans (because of their admiration) at lalo na sa mga bashers (and their hatred).

* pag actors nga, hindi dapat pinakikialaman yung personal nilang buhay kasi ang importante yung capacity nila to entertain. Plus factor na lang talaga kung inspiring at mabait sila in real life. Bawal maging imperfect?



With Maymay’s fellow housemates, whether we count who voted her to become winner  or not,  what matter is  they were all had good relationships with her inside the house. Pag ganyan naman umiiba ng choice, okay lang ‘yan because we have different bets naman talaga according to  our own perspectives. But why Nonong Ballinan, Jinri Park, , Mccoy de Leon and Nikko Natividad, Elisse Joson, Tanner, Fenech Veloso, Luis Hontiveros, Ali Forbes,  Jessi Corcuera,  and Thuy (Nhuyen Thi Thuy) chose her as their big winner... common reason? "madaling pakisamahan." 

*Kaya nga rin napahanga ako nina Cora Waddell, Aura, and Tanner they’re not people persons and yet they able to survive the competitions longer. By the way, Aura  named Maymay as her favorite teen housemate in PBB Online)

Let’s say Maymay Entrata is OA 

I think OA is not the right term kundi kakaiba. We all have uniqueness that people either like or hate. And the first  reaction we would do if an individual has different ways of doing things is to think he or she's doing wrong. Actually that's the wrong side of it, dahil may tinatawag din na "norm" or 'conformity."   I don’t also like the way Maymay eats ( check big 4's late dinner after the 1st day of the Big Night) , but I don’t think that's enough reason to judge or bash her. In fact, sa mga kamag-anak kong mga Waray ay hindi bago ang nakataas ang paa, nagkakamay, at nakayuko habang  kumakain. And I can say mas nakakagana silang tingnan na kahit daing lang ang ulam kaysa mga taong nasa restaurant at maayos ang upo. What about table manners?  In defense of all foodies, the only thing that’s hateful is food wasting. Always remember that!   

Let’s say people favored her because she’s poor  

      Yes possibly being poor is one factor to look appealing to many compassionate people. Marami sa teens ( Badjao girl Rita and Yong), regular, at celebrity ang hindi rin naman mayaman. But I guess  the management and PBB viewers favored Maymay because she’s wacky, soft-hearted, and talented too.  Common, many people could probably sing and dance, but not to write songs.  Iyong songs ni Maymay cheesy pero catchy, novel, and poetic. I read some comments na may isa pa ata siyang kanta na ipinapa-translate kay Tanner. On top of that, Maymay's voice has a unique quality that she doesn't  need to hit high notes to notice it. Well, I guess she’s not a choir member and a scholar for nothing.

    Bakit hindi na lang sumali sa The Voice no? Good decision na Mag-PBB siya kasi mahirap ang competition yun, pero madali rin ba ang mag-PBB?  If ako nga ay isang housemate at isasalang ako sa lie detector test, susundin ko ang ginawa ni Mccoy. 

You would don’t like the way her mannerisms, but on the other side overwhelming ang kanyang personality, positivism, and talents.  Ako nanood ako kasi na-amuse na rin ako sa kanya  – she actually touched my heart noong inaalagaan n’ya si Lola Pina, maging ate sa kanyang teen housemates, mamatayan siya  ng lolo, at mag-alangan sa kanyang sarili. Makaka-relate ka because very Filipino yung story at reaction n'ya. Nakakabilib yung positibo nyang outlook n'ya kahit na when she went outside PBB house temporarily, she knew already that she has bashers.


Let’s say the management favored her 


If ever, the good question here is why the ABS-CBN management favored her in the first place? Eddie may something nga sa kanya kung nagkataon.  If I’m going to analyze the business side...

       Among the housemates – I would tap the good looking ones like Edward, Kisses, Heaven Peralejo, Tanner, Mccoy, Elise,  Marco Gallo, Vivoree Esclito, Yassi Pressman, Hideo, Luis, Jinri, and Cora to win or have more exposure. They’re easier to market and nurture especially yung karamihan may mga experiences na.  So to choose a simple probinsyana ay sort of gamble or they already seeing the “X factor” para maging favorite si Maymay. Ang pinaka-business dito ay kung saan kikita di ba? In the field of entertainment, you can't really push to people who they would like. There are no sure and perfect formulas kasi even the talented,  good looking, and hard working people  ay nawawala sa limelight. Iilan lang may staying power.

     And by the way, she’s not UGLY-she has captivating Filipina BEAUTY ( like Janine Tugunon, Venus Raj, and Gloria  Diaz).  Tataya ako, kahit hindi iyan ipasok sa PBB at ma –expose siya she could find other careers.
     
       *I don't even know why some Filipinos think being tan is ugly, being not good in English is stupidity, and being poor/ rich is disadvantage. I guess they're being unrealistic anyway...

   Let's say it's because of the Mayward love team / fans 


      Again the bottom line is her X factor. Edward and Maymay wouldn’t have fans if  they see nothing. This is not the first time that two housemates become closer and not all housemates become closer become hit tandems. If I’m correct, it’s only Kimerald and Melason who found stardom after PBB. Edward by the way, is such as a wonderful boy that you’ll notice with or without Maymay. Ganun din sina Maymay, Kisses, and Yong. Nagkataon lang  may pares-pares at malakas nga ang Mayward (pero honestly gusto ko rin ang MayNer at JiNong :p )
a
      If I have to pick who are good  contenders for the big winner slot  ( from the Dream Team) it would be Aura, Jerome Alacre, Cora, Tanner, Kisses, Maymay, and Edward. 

   IMHO, Maymay actually deserved to win for so many other reasons and so as Kisses Delavin, Yong Muhajil, and Edward Barber in case  sino sa kanila ang manalo. Hindi yan out of "favoritism," and "charity work" -  puwede pa pure Luck.

TV actress Janine Gutierrez is a certified car lover

During the media launch of Petron Temperature Protection Line of products, Car lover  Janine Gutierrez and vehicle expert James Deakin shared their knowledge about cars. This include car maintenance tips, what are Janine's favorite parts of her car.



The Kapuso star and now new Petron Calendar Girl said that her dad,  Christopher "Monching"  Gutierrez influenced her  to become a car lover. Knowing this, she's indeed a perfect endorser for any products related to motoring.

Apart from another Kapuso star Rhian Ramos ( a car racer), Janine is the few actresses that I know who's into car.
