Half-Brazilian, half-Japanese model Daniel Matsunaga, 25, becomes the very first non-Filipino winner of Pinoy Big Brother.

Obviously, it didn't matter to Pinoy viewers that he's not a Filipino and voted for him to win the show. (In fact, in this blog's annual poll, Daniel also won as the Philippines' Hottest Man for 2012 even if he's not Pinoy.)

Despite having no Filipino blood, Daniel showed in the house that he's got "pusong Pinoy", and set many good examples to all of us. He won not because he's a popular celebrity nor a hot hunk, but because he has a good character. Very deserving winner!

I love what he said after he was announced as the Big Winner, that some people might question him not being a Filipino, but he feels proud to be a Filipino, even prouder than other Pinoys out there. True!

Here's the voting results. Daniel must be thankful that he's well-loved by the voters. He ranked 2nd in BBS votes, and 2nd in BBE. As a result, he won overall!

Jane 19.93%
Daniel 18.52%
Maris 13.62%
Vickie 4.57%

Jane 20.66%
Daniel 6.83%
Maris 10.52%
Vickie 5.35%

Jane -0.73%
Daniel 11.69%
Maris 3.1%
Vickie -0.78%
