After 10 years of real-life drama, PBB is now opening it’s doors for it’s new season, the PBB: 737. The new edition of PBB is composed of teens from different provinces of the Philippines and also opens for other countries that are born Filipino or with a Filipino blood.
Auditions for PBB are something that most Filipinos are waiting for. They are actually waiting for a chance to be known and the experience to be in PBB. Over the past 10 years, thousands of Filipinos auditioned for the said TV Show and endured the long wait of getting interviewed as one of the housemates. PBB 737, however, found a faster way of registering their housemates to-be, through an interactive mobile service via ABSCBN mobile where the first 2000 applicants will get a sure slot for audition.
