“Thank you, thank you Lord! Hindi ako mapaniwala na ako yung napili niyo, nagpakatotoo lang talaga ako. Sana marami akong na-inspire na tao na hindi huli ang pagbabago, mahal tayo ng Diyos,” Big Winner Keanna said as tears of joy fell from her eyes.

Her unprecedented victory was announced during the star-studded Celebrity Big Night, the culminating event of PBBCE held in Liwasang Bonifacio in Manila, where thousands gathered to witness Keanna’s triumph.

KEANNA: Nanay, True Friend , Comedienne
Comedienne, nanay and a true friend. These words best describe Keanna as a housemate of Pinoy Big Brother Celebrity Edition.
In her first week in the house, Keanna immediately caught the attention of her housemates, not because they liked her. The other celebrities noticed that she was not fond of doing the household chores. Her laziness earned her a nomination during the 1st nomination night. Fortunately, possibly due to her funny jokes and antics, the viewers rescued Keanna from eviction.
Things changed after the 1st eviction night. The Kilabot ng Senado became more cooperative in terms of helping others do the household chores, tasks and challenges given by Big Brother. She eventually earned the respect of the others especially the younger celebrities like John, Roxie and Bianca. Keanna became their “Nanay-nanayan.” John would always go to her Nanay to seek her advice on how to handle the difficult situations inside the house.
Aside from being his “nanay,” John also considers Keanna as one of his closest friends. One of the most recognizable barkadas in the house was the triumvirate of John, Keanna and Rustom. Both the prodigal son of showbiz and the dance floor dynamite say that Keanna is a person whom they can truly trust. And when the moment came for Rustom to reveal the biggest secret of his life, without any doubt in his mind, Rustom chose Keanna to be the first housemate to know that he’s gay.
Aside from a nanay and a true friend, Keanna is also considered to be the funniest housemate of PBBCE. This comedienne is known for cracking anticlimactic but hilarious jokes just like what she did during her big fight with former housemate Mich. She mistakenly labed Mich as “KFC” instead of “KSP” or kulang sa pansin. Who can forget the moment when Keanna suddenly excused herself to attend to nature’s call when Rustom was about to reveal that he’s gay? These are just two of Keanna’s hilarious moments in Kuya’s house that have become part of the highlights of the 14 celebrities’ 56-day stint in PBBCE.
A bright future awaits Keanna with her emergence as the Celebrity Big Winner. Her triumph tonight didn’t only change her life but also the lives of her sons. Kilabot ng Senado’s Pinoy Big Brother Celebrity Edition experience will surely make her a much stronger person in facing the upcoming challenges of the real world.
Brace yourselves because after three weeks, Big Brother will be back again on your TV screen for the much-awaited Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition!
