After showcasing their personality and character in “Pinoy Big Brother Connect,” alumni Andi Abaya, Kobie Brown, Haira Palaguitto and Kyron Aguilera have 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 squad mates:
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.
