Neil Salvacion, former boyfriend of reigning Miss Universe Philippines Rabiya Mateo, has auditioned to become a housemate at the upcoming “Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) Kumunity Season 10.”
Auditions for the Adult Edition officially opened on Sept. 1 and will end on Sept. 30 via the Pinoy community platform Kumu. The upcoming tenth regular season of “PBB” will also feature Celebrity and Teen Editions.
In his one-minute audition entry, Salvacion said:
“Ako po ay isang COVID nurse na dapat ay mag-a-abroad pero mas piniling manilbihan dito sa bansa bilang isang frontliner. Sa araw-araw na ginawa ng Diyos, ang buhay ko po ay hospital-bahay.
“Minsan, masisilayan mo ang huling hininga ng mga pasyente. Ito at iba’t ibang hugot sa buhay ang aking maiaambag sa PBB Kumunity — kung paano ang buhay ng isang frontliner.
“Dumating ang panahon na bawal kang lumapit sa mga mahal mo sa buhay dahil hindi mo alam kung positive or negative ka, kailangan mo mag-isolate.
“Nakakalungkot man mag-isolate ng ilang buwan, mas nakakalungkot pala maiwan ka ng taong minamahal mo dahil sa pangarap nitong korona.
“Coronavirus o korona sa patimpalak ay ilan lamang sa mga hamon sa aking buhay. It’s about time for me to share my story, how I conquered them, and how will I inspire other people.”
Salvacion was in a relationship with Mateo for several years. But in June, Salvacion wrote on Instagram that he and Mateo are not together anymore.
Mateo represented the Philippines at the 2020 Miss Universe pageant in Florida, United States where she finished in the Top 21.
To audition for “PBB Kumunity Season 10,” hopefuls just need to download the Kumu app, create an account, and upload a 1-minute Kumu clip where he or she will introduce oneself and say why he or she is deserving to become a housemate, and use the hashtag “PBBKumuAdults.”
Auditions for Adult Edition for those who are 20 to 40 years old will be until Sept. 30, while auditions for the Teen Edition, for those 15 to 19 years old, will begin on Dec. 1 to Dec. 31 and will use the hashtag “PBBKumuTeens.”
