So, which among Melisa, Johan, Jason, Paul Jake, or Tibo are you rooting to become the Big Winner in ABS-CBN’s Pinoy Big Brother: Double Up (The show’s producers are certainly milking the Melason affair for all its worth, no?) Since the Big Night to determine the Big Winner is just around the corner, I think it would be cool to feature the famed house here in Vista Pinas. But since the satellite imagery is old, what you can see is the old house, before it became the double house.

When the first season of Pinoy Big Brother aired, I thought that the house was in some faraway place due to the secrecy of bringing the first housemates from the ABS-CBN compound to the house. It turned out that the house is just across Eugenio Lopez Jr. Drive from the broadcasting company’s headquarters. Talk about anti-climactic. The house has now been the venue of three regular seasons of PBB, two teen editions and two celebrity editions, as well as two seasons of Pinoy Dream Academy.
Anyway, if you look at the satellite imagery, you can barely see the logo of the PBB show emblazoned (upside-down) on the roof of the house making the location unmistakable. You can also see the large gym just to the west of the house where some of the more physical activities in Pinoy Big Brother are held. I wonder if the neighbors are inconvenienced by their Kuya neighbor. Hehe. You should also check out this floor plan of the double house lovingly created by a fan of the show for Wikipedia.
