Amanda Zamora can now add Pinoy Big Brother Housemate to her modeling resume. The new season called "Pinoy Big Brother: Connect" premiered last December 6 on the Kapamilya channel and recently held its first ever nomination night. In an Instagram post by her mom Keri Zamora, the 19-year-old model just garnered enough livestream views on Kumu to make it into the PBB household! Amanda got a whopping 71.81 million Diamonds on the app to rank first and make the cut. "Diamonds" are Kumu's virtual currency that a user earns as a digital gift from their viewers if they like their content. Every 50,000 Diamonds equals to 750 pesos! Not bad!
“She has always wanted to join PBB since she was 13! Three years ago, even if I was hesitant, she lined up at 5 a.m. at Araneta Coliseum. She didn’t make it but that didn’t stop her from trying and trying. Like her dad, she never stops!” Keri writes in an Instagram post. Here are some exclusive photos from Amanda’s mom the moment the announcement was made.
Fashion is definitely in Amanda’s blood—her mom has been part of Preview Best Dressed list and is always seen in chic 'fits during events and any public appearance. The chinita is also a regular runway model and has strut the catwalks of Bench Fashion Week and the Red Charity Gala.
Congratulations Amanda and we can’t wait to see you add your unique sense of style to the PBB house!
