Pinoy Big Brother All In housemates include teens, celebrities and regulars: Who are they?

Pinoy Big Brother All In housemates will be revealed this coming Sunday, and the excitement has already started to build up now among PBB fans especially after the show's director Lauren Dyogi has confirmed last night that they've already finalized the official housemates of the season.

According to Direk Lauren's tweet, there will be 18 official housemates to be revealed on Sunday, 3 of them were picked from the last chance audition held at the Araneta Coliseum last April 15. Yeah, just 3 out of more than 10,000 people who auditioned. That's kinda harsh, but at least, it's contrary to rumors that only 1 housemate from the Araneta Coliseum made it to the final list of official housemates.

The housemates, who come from Aklan, Batangas, Bulacan, Davao, Negros, Quezon Province and Metro Manila cities Makati, Las Pinas, Pasay and Quezon, are mixture of teens, regular age housemates and special celebrities, that's why this 5th season of Pinoy Big Brother is called ALL IN. Meaning, they are combining in just one season different types of housemates who usually were in separate editions in previous seasons.

The youngest housemate is aged 15, and the oldest is 26, still according to Dyogi. Wow! That just means, the whole house will be filled with youthful vibe. All young housemates. No oldies.

Among RUMORED housemates are G-Force dancer Jan Stephen Noval, Paolinne Michelle Liggayu of JAMICH, Chariz Solomon's twin brothers, James Reid "ex-gf" Ericka Villongc, Ai-Ai delas Alas' son Sancho and hottie model Mark McMahon.

I think it's gonna be the best edition ever of Pinoy Big Brother. (I actually say that in every season or edition. I hope I won't be disappointed.)

Still returning as hosts are Toni Gonzaga, Bianca Gonzalez, John Prats and Robi Domingo. PBB Unlimited winner Slater Young and Toni's sister Alex Gonzaga, who was never a housemate, are joining the gang as new hosts.

Aside from Slater, other big winners of PBB in previous editions include Nene Tamayo, Keanna Reeves, Kim Chiu, Beatriz Saw, Ruben Gonzaga, Ejay Falcon, Melai Cantiveros, James Reid and Myrtle Sarrosa.

Kim Chiu, Xian Lim lead nominees for Philippines' Hottest Men & Women 2013

Kim Chiu led among women, while Xian Lim dominated the men during the "nomination round" for this blog's search for the Hottest Men and Women in the Philippines for the Year 2013.

Back in March, I asked you to nominate for up to 10 men and 10 women who you think were both "hit" and "hot" the previous year.

The TOP 100 NOMINEES for each category will advance to the next round.

Emerging as the top favorite choices or being nominated the most are Xian Lim among the men and Kim Chiu among women.

Xian is followed by Daniel Padilla and Enrique Gil, while behind Kim Chiu are Anne Curtis and Kathryn Bernardo.

The next round will be called as the "Qualification Round" where a poll will be opened to determine who among those 100 nominees will continue (only 56 will move to the next round, the Group Stage).

Since World Cup is coming, I've decided to do our annual search the World Cup style. After the Group Stage, the Round of 16 will be next (Top 2 from each group will battle against each other), followed by the Quarter-Finals (Top 8), the Semi-Finals (Top 4) and ultimately, the Finals (Top 2).

Exciting isn't it?

For now, wait for the poll in our Qualification Round to open very soon and see who else made it to the Top 100 nominees. (I'm almost through finalizing the list.)

As I stated in my blog post before, the Top 10 men and women mentioned above will be given bonus points in the next round to recognize that they garnered the most votes during the nomination period. There's actually 11 girls listed there because there was a tie in 10th place between Julia Montes and Toni Gonzaga.

We're still in the early stage of the competition and it's not yet a guarantee that the next Hottest Man and Woman will come from those top nominees. But at least we know who the early frontrunners are.

The current PH's Hottest Man and Woman titleholders are Daniel Matsunaga and KC Concepcion. Before them, they were Phil Younghusband and Angel Locsin.

Truly, the Kenyan actress has been reaping many blessings after her acclaimed performance in the 2013 Hollywood film "12 Years A Slave" which earned for her a first Best Supporting actress win at the Oscar Awards held last March.

She's now the 3rd black woman to be named People's Most Beautiful (after Halle Berry and Beyonce), but she's the 1st 100% African and of course the 1st Kenyan woman to be named as such.
I think People has made such a great choice. I love Lupita!

Joining her in the annual "50 Most Beautiful" list are Keri Russell, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, Mindy Kaling, Pink, Amber Heard, Gabrielle Union, Molly Sims, Stacy Keibler, Kerry Washington and 40 others. The full list can be found in the mag's latest issue.

In the 2010s, hailed "Most Beautiful" by PEOPLE prior to Lupita were Julia Roberts, Jennifer Lopez, Beyoncé and Gwyneth Paltrow. -

Herbert Bautista dumps 'girlfriend' Kris Aquino?

Kris Aquino cuts off long hair after briefly dating Quezon City Mayor Herbert 'Bistek' Bautista. Post-breakup haircut?

After the Holy Week break, Queen of All Media Kris Aquino had to make a life-changing decision: HAVING A NEW HAIRSTYLE.

On Easter Monday, Kris decided to cut off her usually long hair and opted for a pixie cut, just like what Hollywood celebs Jennifer Lawrence, Anne Hathaway, Charlize Theron and even Miley Cyrus did to their hair the previous year. Have a look!

Kris Aquino debuted her new look on "Aquino & Abunda Tonight" April 21 episode and I initially didn't like it. But the next day, April 22, I already started to love it. She's lookin' awesome!

Girls having a new hair cut is usually associated to being broken-hearted so they could feel better, they say. Is Kris hurting? Did she and Mayor Herbert "Bistek" Bautista stop dating?

Seeing Kris with that super short hair, people were quick to conclude that Kris and Bistek have broken up (if they indeed became a couple), or have stopped dating. The Quezon City Mayor reportedly has just dumped the Queen of All Media (especially after news broke out that he hasn't officially broken up with Tates Gana, the mother of his 2

On Instagram, Kris has clarified late last night that she and Herbert
are not a couple, but they're best friends.

krisaquino214 "I got home & saw all the Gatorade waiting for me. Thank You HB! (Sorry I broke my rule about not mentioning him in my IG account. ️) We're not a "couple" but we are the BEST OF FRIENDS. And in this uncertain world, we're sure to be FRIENDS FOR LIFE. That's actually what we started as, it's where we are most comfortable being, and for whatever tomorrow may still bring, true & lasting friendship is always the best foundation... May I quote my favorite song? "Thanks
to you for teaching me how to live, putting things in perspective. Teaching me how to give, and how to take, no mistake..." I grew up a lot this 2014 & he had a big role in what I am today. #noregrets #stillbelieveinlove #someday GOOD NIGHT."

Now I get it. Kris has already given up her hope of having Herbert as potential partner in life. The two probably have mutually decided to just stay as friends, rather than be more than friends and take risks. Hope I got that right.

I'm sure Kris was in her proper mind when she decided to cut her hair off. She's a Pantene endorser (which I assume has been requiring her to have a long hair), and also, she's on the cover of YES! Magazine this
May 2014 which still shows the TV host in her previous look.

In the said issue, Kris opens up about her new QC home and about dating QC Mayor Herbert Bautista. Notice that she's wearing a necklace with an "H", which could stand for no less than "Herbert".

She's got new hair. She's no longer in a cheesy relationship with Mayor Bistek. Will that affect the sales of the mag's latest issue?

Deniece Cornejo - Cedric Lee manhunt begins: Deniece, Cedric now fugitives

Deniece Cornejo , Cedric Lee and 3 others are now (wanted) fugitives after the arrest warrant over the serious illegal detention charged against them by Vhong Navarro has already been issued by the court Monday. As of today, they haven't surrendered nor been arrested yet.

After a long holiday break due to Holy Week observance, the warrant of arrest was finally issued yesterday afternoon, April 21, 2014, by presiding judge Paz Esperanza Cortez of Taguig RTC Branch 271.

Ordered arrested with no bail recommended are Cedric Cua Lee, Deniece Millinette Cornejo, Simeon Palma Raz Jr aka Zimmer Raz, Sajed Hernandez Abuhijleh aka Jed Hernandez and Ferdinand Guerrero. No arrest warrant however has been issued for 2 other suspects: Cedric Lee's sister Bernice and JP Calma (who's reportedly the one turning into a state witness).

Now, Cedric, Deniece and friend have only 2 options: 1) wait for the PNP and NBI to arrest them, 2) surrender themselves, 3) hide under bed. Which is which? There's no way out.

This development in Vhong's case against Cedric, Deniece et al is somehow a celebration and a victory already for Vhong and for people
who have been following the teleserye-like case for 3 months now.

There is still justice in the country, but fight isn't over though until we all see them in jail.

Vhong himself is already thankful for the progress of the case and for the immeasurable support he's been getting.

"Good morning everyone! Felt your prayers especially yesterday. Maraming salamat po! Godbless!," Vhong tweeted just this morning.

He's feeling blessed. His movie 'Da Possessed' which opened last Saturday is doing great in the box office, and now, he's getting justice for the mauling that Cedric's did to him last January.
