Ex-PBB teen housemate Tricia Santos defends herself on negative rumors



Tricia Santos probably holds the distinction of being the most unpopular housemate of Pinoy Big Brother Teen Clash of 2010. Inside the house she had been called by her peers many things, like attention seeker, cry on cue, childish, so on and so forth. ABS-CBN.com interviewed Tricia following her eviction, and she reacted to how she seemed to have been put in a bad light because of the incidents inside the PBB house. The 15-year-old Davaoeña revealed this is not the first time that she had experienced not being liked by people around her. “Kahit po dati naka experience na akong maraming may ayaw sa akin. Pero kahit na ganun, ginugusto ko pa rin na maging masaya sa buhay. Basta alam ko naman sa sarili ko na wala akong sinasadyang saktan na ibang tao. I can’t please everybody. Naka set na ‘yung mind ko na magustuhan man ako ng mga tao o hindi, nandiyan naman ‘yung family ko at si Lord.”

Tricia went inside the Kuya’s house thinking of just having fun. But looking back, she thought that maybe her being too loud upset the other housemates. “Siguro dahil maingay ako. Aminado akong maingay ako. Pero sana lang kung paano ko sila tinanggap the way they are sana naging ganun din sila sa akin. Hindi lang dapat ‘yung good side, dapat pati bad side ng isang tao tanggapin natin. Pero hindi ganun ‘yung nangyari sa akin.”

Because of this attitude, most of the teen housemates assumed that Tricia was childish by nature, but she explained, “Bata pa naman talaga ako. I’m only 15. Childish talaga ako minsan. Kahit sa ibang tao nangungulit ako, ‘Sino pwedeng kalaro?’ Pero ngayon tina-try ko na talagang umayos.” Tricia further clarified that she is not showing such behavior just so she could get noticed. “Lahat naman tayo kailangan ng attention every once in a while. Pero hindi ko siya ginagawa on purpose. Sana they won’t use that against me kasi ginagawa ko naman ‘yung best ko na magbago.”

Also according to the other housemates, Tricia’s way of gaining attention was to cry even for the simplest things, hence she earned the label “cry on cue.” “Hindi totoong ‘cry on cue’ ako pero totoong iyakin ako. Super iyakin ako kahit sa maliliit na bagay. Pero ang sama naman kung iisipin nilang ‘cry on cue’ ako. Hello! Kung gusto kong magpapansin sana nagingay na lang ako at hindi na lang ako nagsayang ng luha!” she defended herself.

While inside the house, rumors also began to spread that underneath Tricia’s innocent beauty is a wild party girl, which the young lady dispelled. “Medyo lumaki po akong spoiled pero ngayon iba na dapat. Gumigik ako pero may limit naman. Pumupunta ako ng party pero hindi ako umiinom ng todo. Naka try ako uminom pero hindi ako alcoholic. Ni hindi nga ako umiinom ng soft drinks e. Athlete ako so dapat I should stay healthy. Kung ginagabi ako ng uwi from a party may consent naman ‘yung ng parents ko. Naipaalam naman ako sa kanila ng mga friends ko.”

When she left the PBB house, Tricia has had to deal with former housemates Eslove Briones and Shey Bustamante who were apparently force evicted because of her. Tricia said that all is well now with Eslove, but she has yet to speak with Shey. “Si Eslove nag Trinoma kami nung nakaraan. For me past is past. Nakapagpatawad na ako kaya kinalimutan ko na lahat ‘yun. Si Eslove naman bago siya ma-evict nag sorry na siya. Si Ate Shey naman hindi pa kami nakakapagusap kasi wala pang chance. Pero sana one of these days magkausap na kami. Wala naman talaga akong problem sa kanya. Sana maging friends pa rin kami.”

Showing her optimism against the negative accusations, Tricia has chosen to put all these behind her. “In the long run makakalimutan rin naman namin lahat ito. Kung hindi ko sila i-forgive, may mangyayari ba? Better to forgive na lang.” For her part, she apologizes to anyone who got offended by her actions in PBB. “Kung may mga tao akong na-offend sa stay ko sa house, sorry po. Pero sana ‘wag tayong maging judgmental kasi marami pa tayong hindi alam sa isang tao.”
