Trivia
  • Viewers know Jon for his good looks and admirable body. However, despite the fame he is experiencing now, Jon has not had an easy life growing up in London. Jon struggled with harsh racial discrimination since he was the only Asian in school. Because of being constantly ostracized by his schoolmates, Jon's self-esteem hit rock bottom. The bullying finally came to an end when he entered college where he found real friends.
  • Then he traveled to the Philippines in search of a new life, but to his disappointment, more trials and difficulties came his way. Jon recalls the time when he used to live in a small room with no air con and electricity. For some time, he slept on a cheap mattress, feeling lonely and missing the company of family and friends. But just like a true Filipino, Jon managed to rise above all the hardships. He persevered to fend for himself, shedding off some extra pounds and later becoming one of the most sought after male models in the country. Despite the Western upbringing, Jon never forgot his Filipino roots. When he came back to the Philippines, he felt a greater privilege of being liked by Filipinos.

Mariel Rodriguez reluctantly joins Jon Avila and Ethel Booba inside Kuya's House

Big Brother took everyone by surprise when he "declared" Mariel Rodriguez a celebrity housemate through a letter that was read by Uber co-host Bianca Gonzalez yesterday, October 17.

No one was more shocked than the Pinoy Big Brother Celebrity Edition 2 host herself, who thought she was just accompanying newly arrived housemate Jon Avila inside the confession room. Mariel was doing her usual hosting routine for PBB Celebrity Uber when Big Brother informed her that she would be staying inside his house for a while. This was totally unexpected, and probably scary for her, especially since she has always been outspoken about her greatest fear—being locked up inside the house as a housemate.

Apparently, this twist had been planned out well by Big Brother, with the host's manager, Boy Abunda, in the know. A pre-taped VTR of his message was shown to Mariel and the housemates, telling her not to blame Kuya but himself. Boy said he believed she would be a better person when her time inside the Big Brother house was up.

Mariel told the housemates that there had been hints and signs that she would be tricked into something like this—her schedule was blocked off for the next two weeks—but she didn't really give it serious thought. On the part of Big Brother, this was the only way he could get Mariel. He had been trying to convince her since PBB Celebrity Season 1 but she was always adamant in remaining outside the house's confines.

Now that Mariel is not just the "Kapitbahay ni Kuya" but a certified housemate, would there be some connivance between her and Big Brother, like a special personal task of snooping around the housemates?

Joining Mariel and the other housemates are Jon Avila, who entered the house during Uber Live, wearing only board shorts that displayed his killer abs, and Ethel Booba, who gave the housemates a show during Primetime live. The three complete the roster of Pinoy Big Brother Celebrity Edition 2 housemates.
