Melai is Pinoy Big Brother Big Winner

Funny, comical, and fast talker Melissa was adjudged Big Winner in the recent edition of Pinoy Big Brother here in the Philippines. She bested four other finalists in the first ever Big 5 in Big Brother franchise history. Melissa or Melai is the audience's favorite since PBB opened last October 4, 2009 mainly due to her bubbly personality and comic antics very similar to comedienne Pokwang. Her most-loved "love story" with co-housemate Jason was also one of the best times of the season, and even topped the rating games besting other TV shows in the primetime slot. The odd love team of Jason and Melai (popularly known as Melason) became this generation's Gabby and Sharon, and even creating its own fanbase in online and offline community. Jason finished third place behind Paul Jake of Cebu, and bested Johann of Quezon City (4th place) and Tibo of Cagayan de Oro (fifth place). Melai is from General Santos City, the same place as Manny Pacquaio.

PBB is one of the passport of many local artists in making it big in the Philippine entertainment scene. It has produced Sam Milby, Kim Chiu, Gerald Anderson, among others. Now that they're out of the house, we'll see if they could follow the same footsteps as their predecessor.
