Bruce is now in Slovenia representing the Philippines to a foreign nation. Of course, because of this swap, much of the attention is given to him this entire week - almost every episode of PBB is alotted for showing how he's been doing in BB Slovenia. Do you think this swap will work for Bruce's advantage? Do you think his presence in Slovenia and his present exposure will give him greater chances of being the Big Winner?? Please share your thoughts..

i think it worked for Bruce's advantage. He did well in Slovenia. people saw the way he connected with foreigners with totally different culture. somehow i think he bragged a lot bout being a Filipino but its ok. he proved how nice Filipinos can be.

I agree - he really did very well in Slovenia. No other housemate could have done it the way he did. I also think he bragged a little but I guess he's got something to brag about anyway - the Philippines might be one poor country but there are still good things about our nation. Mabuhay ka Bruce!!! Thanks for this response!

Yes. Being featured the whole week in both countries means good exposure. Based on the views I've been reading at the other forum, slovenians liked Bruce and his way of comforting Sonja. Big Brother Slovenia even has a promo wherein they will get shirts to be signed by bruce and sell it to gain profit for the operation of the mom of Bruce.

It is a good exposure indeed! I have also seen that forum about the Bruce-autographed shirts and I guess that's just fantastic because I have this feeling that our fellow Pinoy is making waves in Slovenia by touching their lives. His story really is one great thing for him!! It's just a little sad that there were Slovene housemates who made fun of his darker color. Thanks for this response!

being able to travel abroad while in the game has already given him advantage over other palyers now. Even if he is evicted for some reason his popularity has now become more and more advantageous among his housemates. He's already a celebrity by having this very rare privilege to be in other bb house.

If he gets kicked out of the house (which I think is very impossible for now.. LOL), he'll surely be one celebrity because he's now famous and he's got the looks for it. One of my sisters even noted: "He looks like Julio Diaz.." The privilege that he got is indeed rare and he should feel lucky for being chosen to fly to Slovenia. Thanks for this response!

That's a very good observation you got there. Eventually that would be the case. People in the Philippines will be so proud of him for representing our country in Slovenia and many would actually like him. I really think he would have more chances to have a spot in the final four or maybe even be the big winner. I wouldn't disagree anyway if he would win. He is a pretty good housemate and i like him. I want him to be in the final four.

Thanks for that note! I also wouldn't have any protest in case he gets to land on a spot on the final four or even if he becomes this season's winner because he indeed would deserve it. The greatest reason for this is because he's real Filipino - no halves, no quarters but pure Pinoy. Thanks for this response!
