Are PBB Auditions Fixed? Are Housemates Pre-Selected? Lauren Dyogi Speaks Out

As the new season of Pinoy Big Brother approaches, auditions for PBB Season 8 begin. For many, being a PBB housemate is the ultimate ticket to entering showbiz. But rumors about auditions being fixed persist. According to some, housemates are already pre-selected and those with star potential are already included in PBB season 8. How true?

Direk Lauren Dyogi, ABS-CBN TV Production Head Laurenti Dyogi and the man behind Pinoy Big Brother, has addressed the persistent rumors about PBB auditions. Dyogi said every housemate will go through auditions.

“I will admit that iba-iba ang paraan para makapasok sa showbiz,” he began. “Mayroong through the reality programs where you audition, mayroong through some managers, kasi marami naman talagang reputable managers and some recommendations.”

But Dyogi said the auditions being conducted by ABS CBN, the Star Hunt, is one of the best opportunities for a star wannabe to get into the business. There will always be recommendations from colleagues and talent scouts. Even he admits getting recommendations through his social media accounts. But, in the end, everybody will still go through auditions.

“Wala naman po kaming pinangako na lahat ng contestants, manggagaling lang sa auditions” he told PEP.

“The auditions is one way of joining the contest, but everybody who’s recommended, either by katrabaho namin, iba pang managers, lahat ‘yan, pinag-au-audition namin,” Lauren Dyogi reiterated. “Ang integrity namin is kept in, ang importante sa amin is yung makakabuti sa programa, bagay ka ba na maging housemate, bagay ka ba na maging contestant nito?”
