Dubbed as “Tatay’s Boy ng Batangas”, 16-year-old Joshua Garcia is the latest evictee of Pinoy Big Brother.
In an interview with Kris Aquino, in Aquino & Abunda Tonight, Garcia shared that he wants to prioritize his career first and then continue school later on, explaining that he wants to grab this opportunity, now that he’s outside the house.
Aquino, however, encouraged him to finish high school first, emphasizing that unlike college which can be started at any point in your life, high school won’t wait.
When asked if he was offended by Kim Chiu’s controversial PBB tweet, Joshua said that he knew that he was the housemate Chiu was referring to, admitting that he was really lazy inside the house.
Garcia was also asked about his relationship with 18-year-old celebrity teen housemate Jane Oineza. According to him, he told Oineza about his feelings, but Oineza never confirmed anything. He believed that the feeling was mutual and Oineza was just being careful.
He also disclosed his decision of not pursuing Oineza outside the Pinoy Big Brother house, although he admitted to have “feelings” for the teen celebrity. He further explained that it was natural to have feelings and to not act on it, since he had no intentions of having a girlfriend even before he entered the house.
Although saddened by being evicted, Garcia revealed that he somehow saw it coming, after being nominated together with housemates Jane Oineza and Daniel Matsunaga.
At present, only five housemates are remaining. The ‘Big 4’ will be revealed Saturday, followed by the much-awaited “Big Night”, to be held at the Newport Performing Arts Theater, Sunday, August 24.
