Housemates considered Jacob Benedicto overly competitive, strategizing behind their backs that they wanted him evicted. Garnering also the lowest vote percentage of 16.59% against Jane Oineza’s 30.21% and Maris Racal’s 53.19% made the Cutie Crooner Ng Paranaque the fourth PBB All In evictee on Saturday.
Jacob Benedicto holds back tears as he expresses thanks for his experience inside Big Brother’s house
A singer and stage performer, Jacob is mistakenly identified as a semi-finalist in The Voice of the Philippines Season 1 (won by Mitoy Yonting), when in fact not one of the judges turned to say I Want You up to the last note of his audition song The Way You Look Tonight.
Jane Oineza assured of longer stay inside Big Brother’s house as she’s saved from eviction
However, Jacob has had a stint in Kanta Pilipinas, sporting his real family name which is Gayanelo.
Jacob grew up in Indonesia and had to brush up his Tagalog when he came back to the Philippines. He showed musicality early on when he played the drums for a pre-teen band in the neighboring country.
Maris Racal wants to stay longest inside Big Brother’s house to set good example to teens
He said that his stay inside the prominent yellow house in Quezon City was the best month of his life, thanking Kuya (Big Brother) for the experience.
Jacob can now continue smiling and crooning. He has some singing videos on YouTube.
Back to the outside world, Jacob can now croon anytime he wants, especially his favorite Yakap Sa Dilim by Apo Hiking Society. Orange And Lemons (original singers of the Pinoy Big Brother theme Pinoy Ako) also has a version of the ditty.
Twenty-one-year-old Jacob is on his senior year at De La Salle University taking up AB Communication Arts.
