Probably two of the funniest and most genuine housemates we've ever seen on "Pinoy Big Brother" are Fumiya Sankai and Yamyam Gucom.
The two entered the reality show on its eighth season titled "Pinoy Big Brother: Otso" in November 2018. Yamyam is a full-blooded Pinoy from Bohol, and Fumiya is Japanese, but the cultural differences didn't stop a friendship between them from forming!
It has been two years since they left the iconic blue and yellow house, but their bond has stayed true even though they're miles apart.
The two reunited on Toni Gonzaga's virtual talk show "I Feel U" last November 1, where they opened up about the lives they lead now.
Yamyam recently opened up a bakeshop in his hometown in Bohol. He said, "Yamito's Bakeshop, ang pinakamasarap na timplang tinapay ng Big Winner."
Meanwhile, Fumiya returned to Japan before the pandemic began. Apart from vlogging, he is also busy with new endeavors!
He said, "I [am trying to] enter showbiz in Japan. I will also start a small business, a clothing brand."
The comedic duo also recalled their memorable time in "Pinoy Big Brother."
Fumiya shared, "It's easier kasi most of the tasks I [did with] Yamyam. Me and him have very different stories and experiences. When I talk to him, I get different ideas, we help each other talaga."
Toni, who also hosted the reality show, said that she will never forget how happy Fumiya was when they announced that Yamyam was the Big Winner.
To which Fumiya replied, saying, "When I heard the name of Yamyam, sobrang saya. Like I also felt like a winner. That time, I remembered the experiences in the 'PBB' house, then suddenly [I cried]."
Watch their full interview here:
"I Feel U" streams every Sunday, 9:30 AM and 5 PM, on Star Cinema's Youtube and Facebook. Catch the next episode this November 15!
