ABS-CBNNews.com reports that in Bianca Gonzalez’s The Philippine Star column published on Sunday, July 23, the TV host revealed that Senator Francis "Chiz" Escudero "almost became a housemate in the first Pinoy Big Brother: Celebrity Edition in 2006. The report quoted Gonzalez, who wrote: "He did the screenings, he did the interviews, and was seriously considering becoming a housemate."
The report noted that Gonzalez herself became one of the housemates in 2006’s Pinoy Big Brother Celebrity Edition. Actor Rustom Padilla was in the same batch. Padilla had announced that he was gay while he was inside the house. Actress Keanna Reeves was eventually declared as the winner.
For some reason, though, Escudero didn’t push through with his plan.
