Braving the scorching heat of the sun, thousands of celebrity wannabes trooped to ABS-CBN in Quezon City Friday to try their luck as reality-based shows “Pinoy Big Brother” (PBB) and “Pinoy Dream Academy” (PDA) opened their doors to new talents.
The first in the series of auditions was held Friday starting 9 a.m. at the PBB’s eviction hall, just across from the ABS-CBN building.
Security personnel said the people began to arrive as early as 2 a.m..
By 9 a.m., they gave a crowd estimate of 7,000, and the number continued to go up. By 11 a.m., the number of aspirants already reached 10,000.
