“Nene Tamayo recalls favorite PBB memories as she marks 14th year since becoming a housemate”

It’s the ultimate Throwback Thursday for Nene Tamayo, who marks 14 years since entering Pinoy Big Brother.

Pinoy Big Brother Season 1 Big Winner Nene Tamayo went on a trip down memory lane as she marked the 14th year since the famous yellow house opened its doors for her.

In a lengthy Instagram post, Nene expressed how grateful she is to have been part of the 12 chosen among the 25,000 auditionees.

“14 years ago, August 21, 2005, unang magbukas ang Bahay ni Kuya at pinakilala ang unang 12 housemates na makikitira sa Big Brother House sa loob ng 100 days na naging 111 days. Isa ako sa mga pinalad na napasali sa first batch ng housemates out of 25,000 total na nag audition nationwide,” she began.

The business woman, dubbed then as Kumander Nene, recounted her most unforgettable moments inside the PBB house in a series of photos.

“Ang pagiging housemate ang isa sa most unforgettable memories and experience sa buong buhay ko. Ang dami kong masayang alala sa loob ng bahay ni Kuya, katulad ng military task, umakyat ng puno ng niyo, pinagmermaid ako ng one week, naging caregiver kami, maraming pang iba, ngunit ang pinaka paborito ko ang dance marathon, (swipe) ayan sa picture naka blue wig pa ako,” she wrote.

Apart from being the Big Winner of the show’s inaugural season, Nene also recalled how she became the first-ever housemate to celebrate a birthday inside the house.

“Ako rin pala ang kauna-unahang Housemate na nagcelebrate ng birthday sa PBB House. Nakakatuwang alalahanin,” she ended her post.
