I saw this in my multiply account. Check the source below. thanks! "I have worked for abs-cbn for almost 4 years now, since i finished my MA on mass com - broadcast communication in 2003. as part of production on news and current affairs, my work has been mostly rewarding, with good benefits despite the low base pay (i’m including this part so you would understand why i accepted the offer to be transferred to conceptualization of some reality shows particularly the current one, PBB.) because of the sensitivity of my status (i am still working there) i cannot divulge my name, gender and current position in ABS CBN. still, i would like to inform those who are interested (who, most probably, are now wondering why Wendy Valdez is still inside the house and not evicted yet, as most must have assumed.) When i was asked if i wanted to be part of the conceptualization of the current and upcoming reality shows that ABS CBN would be showing (with higher compensation, obviously), i accepted the offer. how bad can it get, i said, since most of these shows run on public voting and my job would mostly include thinking of the “challenges” that Kuya instructs the housemates to do. Apparently, conceptualization incorporates more than that. as i have known after the pre-screening of the auditioners, as early as the application process, we have to note who we think will “attract the public most” and who we think will “make the ratings go off the roof.” after the initial screening, we had to choose the top 100 of the batch, and even though some did not “theoretically pass” the audition (some weren’t able to complete the documents needed), since they have mass appeal, they made it to the first cut, and some were even included in the finalists that entered the BB house. As you all know, the eviction process is supposed to be based on the votes that the “nominated housemates” - the housemate with the lowest vote will be evicted. i dont know about the previous editions of the PBB (since i only worked under this series this season), but what surprised us the most was when we were informed that the voting only affects the decision minimally - that the voting actually shows who the public wants to see again the following day - but that was it. the truth is, there are so-called “talent auditors.” these people are the ones who really put the big decision as to who will be evicted, and who will stay. of course, this never became obvious since i cannot deny the fact that we receive millions of votes during eviction night. that is, until wendy was evicted, and then later returned to join the housemates who are legitimately still in the contest. and the reason is this: the wendy-bruce loveteam is working. have you ever noticed why most of the episodes are focused on the wendy-bruce loveteam? it is because ratings are really high, meaning that people want to see how their relationship develops. I have never received this much question about my work before. my friends want to know how someone who was already evicted be suddenly returned to the house. actually, that is one of the “twists” that are really planned to be included in the show. but there are actually 3 evicted housemates that were vying to be returned to the house, and wendy was one of them. we were asked who we think should be the one to return to the house, and zeke won. but after discussing that the wendy-bruce love team was too interesting to abruptly end, it was wendy who got the spot. aside from that, we were later informed by one of the production managers who was disappointed with the decision, wendy was “direk dyogi’s pet.” I told this story to some of my friends, and they were surprised to know the truth, particularly because some of them were voting for their favorite contestant. i told them only one thing - that they are just wasting their money in voting. as i have personally seen, the path of the contest is already drawn, and the voting only affects the decision minimally, as i have said. this only tells us who the public wants to see again inside the house. the eviction of nel tonight is the classic example. nel got the 2nd lowest number of votes, wendy got the lowest. but the administrators think that perhaps the wendy-bruce loveteam is still up, so we had to give it one last shot. if the ratings go down, or if on tuesday (the next eviction night), wendy still gets the lowest vote, she’s out of the contest. I did not want to reveal all of these, partly because of my loyalty to the company that has given me so much over the years, but i personally think that it is unfair to make one suffer for another’s gain. since i have done background checks on the housemates, i know for a fact that nel isn’t very well-off, and should have been given his chance fairly. i feel bad to know that i am included in a ploy to confuse and even fool people into believing that they control the outcome of the show. that is why i went ahead and did this post. i wanted people to know how PBB works. If you really want to let the network know how disappointed you are with the outcome, make the ratings go down at least until tuesday. and do not waste your money in voting, or if you really want to and have the means to do so, vote for who you really think should be included in the big 4 - this way, hopefully, wendy will be out on tuesday for good." http://superduperlushy.multiply.com/journal/item/34?mark_read=superduperlushy:journal:34

One thing that most networks would do, the reason why I don't watch this kind of stuffs. I don't believe in "reality TV", and certainly don't fall for these CHEAP shows. Eversince that show started, I already had a doubt that they give quality entertainment for the viewers. As you can see, there is one person who manipulates the plot, and that is the one they call KUYA or BIG BROTHER. You can obviously see their real intentions here, just by the way they focus cameras, and give challenges, because they already know who's gonna win or lose. They already know the weaknesses of every housemates, so that's where they try to manipulate the viewers point of view. They already had a bet on who's gonna win the pot money, the challenges are just a way to keep their bet inside Big Brother's house.

yes that's true. they made the reality show turned to a tv series. It lost the essence.

The show started out as negative, the only reason why people watched it was because they still didn't know the real intentions of the network. It is not to entertain, but for popularity. If the management really have great minds behind it, then they should've started a realtiy show that is original and not adopt a show from other countries. It's pretty obvious, but some people just try to ignore the sad truth because of their so-called loyalty. And now that the truth has been finally revealed, expect a propanganda drive coming from that "pitiful" network.

yeah Id rather be a kapuso rather than a kapamailya for this case but I think kapuso station also does have some bias aspects. I mean, we're all not perfect right? =)

haaay. so they say that this is a reality show. think again. there are times that i really doubt about the credibility of the show but hey, i still watch it anyway. but now with wendy still around i must say that i wouldn't want to watch PBB already. not until she gets evicted. as for PBB2 being bias, there really isn't much we can do about it. it is the station's choice for their ratings to go up but what bothers me here is making the people believe that their votes really matter when in fact, they are just wasting their time and money. i know that people choose wisely as to who their votes will be for and i am really disappointed that wendy is still in the BB house, which makes me think that majority of the people still like her. but now my eyes are opened to the fact mskzalameda has exposed parts of the truth. and now i want more. haha.

haha! thanks for that! well, it is not wholly exposed and if people will keep on voting for the right person to be the winner, the wrong person will still be on top. ABS CBN hungers for ratings. They got ratings and money all in one. so greedy I must say.

Hello there. I'm not the right person to voice out my opinion here as I never watch any single episode of PBB season 2 not even the previous one. I'm lost. There is always a lot of speculation circling around in such reality shows. The viewers can have their chance to support their favorites but the media men behind the show can have a great impact on the status of each contestant as well. This goes for other TV reality shows as well.

yes but as the statement goes, the votes of the mass has a minimal effect on the possibility of the big winner. They just air the show for plain ratings and not on the mass appeal. They are ratings greedy for that case.

I'm not a fan of PBB. I don't watch it even the 1st season but once in a while out of curiosity I change my channel to Number 2. For a reality show I don't find any realistic reason in the show for me to think that it is worth watching. Most of the time it seems to me majority of the people inside that house are acting and pretending. Even the so called kuya I think is acting trying to be famous. My apologies to the fans of the show I mean no offense.

personally, i don't like to jump into conclusions right away and believe that the post is real or simply a hoax. but one thing is bugging me about this pbb staff playing to be a 'hero' who is trying to expose the 'truth'. in the last paragraph he is trying to campaign to everybody, the voting public, for the network's ratings to go down which he/she is part of it. that's ridiculuous!!! he/she should have resigned from her job righ away to expose the supposedly 'truth' he/she knows. or is he/she is playing safe because he/she still has not been paid of her enormous talent fee as she has claimed? i still have some doubts as to the veracity of his/her post while he/she remains to be loyal to the network because of higher pay. i would even challenge him/her to come out in the open and speak out the 'truth' so the people may know and let things and issues be resolved legitimately and fairly and justice can be done to all those who have been evicted from the show and those who spent their money thru texting. he should be man enough to face the consequences in the pursuit of truth and justice.

maybe yes you have a point there. the one who wrote this one can be or do have some problems with ABS that's why she's doing this. It i also possible that she is a real Kapuso making up stories to ruin ABS reputation but as I can see, her story is very detailed and everybody thinks the same now against PBB. Almost all hated Wendy, rumors are spreading that she's a sl*t and all that stuffs. Maybe she can't reveal her true identity for her own security purposes too since, life is not just life, we never know what will happen next. There's many possibilities.

he/she already has identified herself by saying that he/she is MA mass comm graduate, worked with the network for 4 years and became a part of the conceptualization process and specifically involved in thinking of the 'challenges' which KUYA instruct the housemates to do. by describing herself through these everyone in the pbb should have known her by now. besides 'rumours' are telling us that this post came from one of the forums from pbb? another ridiculous idea.

I cannot say if this article is true or not. All I know is that Wendy, not Nel, was supposed to be evicted last night. Everyone I know really hates Wendy and even the write-ups I have read on the net and newspapers were all against her. But why wasn't she evicted? Maybe the writer of the article is right. ABS-CBN do manipulate the results. Look at this way, if Wendy was the one evicted, what would happen to the house now? It'll be boring right? Maybe they are using Wendy to get the ratings high. Or maybe, the whole season is really scripted. I mean, it's possible that the housemates are told of what they're supposed to do to add drama into the reality show. That's possible right?

yes that is REALLY possible. Even if this article was not published, people can sense the thing that really happens inside the house. With wendy staying and Nel out, this is such an obvious fact that even some can't accept. The article is form an ABS CBN Forum. Why publish such thing in your own backyard in the first place if its not true right???

it's really make me upset when Nel have to leave the house. i think he really deserve to win or even be part of the big 4, because they're not rich unlike other housemate. and it's really makes me mad when i read your post but at the same time glad that u post it coz i thought that televiewer doesn't like Nel. But i hope that Wendy and Bruce will be out of the house SOON...

I could not believe that Nel was evicted last night. Wendy was supposed to be the one evicted. This how is a scam. All shows are made for the ratings. This is not fair. I will tell all my friends to boycott the show and to stop voting.

yes that is the right thing to do. It IS AN OBVIOUS FACT. Wendy being not evicted in place of Nel is really annoying. WE NEED NO FURTHER EVIDENCE REGARDING THIS.

if you really are from abs cbn, you must identify yourself and does not hide with any shadow and the more you should if really this things happened. Or what you reveal is a PLAI LIE whose motive is to sow itrigues

I am not the one who wrote this as you can see, it is quoted. I can understand the part of the writer who wrote this article. She don't want to loose her job, she just revealed the truth. We can't say its plain lies if she has some basis. Like in any crime reports, the journalist don't reveal his or her source for its own safety.

it was very obvious from the very start that something fishy was going on... but of course, for us who are not working with the company can only go as far as speculate. now that someone has spilled the beans, i guess most of us don't even have to wait until the big night to find out what will really happen.

yes almost everybody thinks that it will be wendy but I guess it will not be since they have cheated long enough to the public and cheating on the big winner will not be allowed anymore I guess and hope so.

wendy was given the chance, obviously by abs cbn last saturday to stay in the house. i haven't met any single person who voted for her and yet she was saved. or maybe that dyogi person bought vote cards just to save that wendy. while i am not really convinced that the one who wrote that article above is from abs-cbn, i believe that abs-cbn somehow manipulated the text votes just to make wendy stay. i always watch PBB but i make it a point to go to the bathroom or get my midnight snack or switch to another channel whenever bruce and wendy are on-screen.

eversince the PBB started its all about the ratings not the vote. We are just wasting our money, this is not truly a reality tv. There are no truth about this, do you wonder when they are outside the house they became their talent.

Well as far as I know the author of this letter is still doubtful. We have so many of these different versions you of letter putting down PBB as a whole. As for voting i really don't care anymore since I really am not a voter myself. Although I am watching it very much. I am not at all affected if the ratings do go down or not. If ever her allegations are right then it would really be bad for the network itself. If they would not be following what the voters are choosing then they would really be viewing a lot of viewers and the ratings would definitely go down.

hi, to be honest am a kapuso viewer but for pbb am a fan of it. with your post here, what am thinking now was confirmed that bec. bruce and wendys love affair was something to follow with and the team was viewed as to what will happen next is the reason why wendy got back. am not against abs-cbn but with the issue on wendy... let me just share my personal comment. I knew from the start that wendy needs money coz of her present situation in life, reason why she keep on crying recently coz she want to make it to the magic 4... I know that the dream of every housemates. Wendys behavior for the past weeks is very discouraging instead of letting herself be loved now most people hates her. I now like gee-ann, when I first saw her she is weird having pamela around. her changest for betterment insde the house is something to be cherish for. I like Mickey for being cool and always neutral among the housemates, trying to be a kuya to everyone specially those who are having fight. I just hope abs-cbn will take this comments/voices of the viewers for them to gain trust. Reason why am kapuso, I can see the difference on how they handle news and information to people. the being neutral is what I saw imn GMA and way back before I also saw how biased ABS-CBN on some of their shows only not all. ABS-CBN has alsoaward winning show that I watch... thanks to remote control tv.

I think its true that PBB is BIAS because Big Brother always favored Wendy. I think Wendy is his favorite housemate.
