This Week on 'We Rise Together': KZ Tandingan, Ina Raymundo + 'PBB Connect' Big 4!

The well-loved "Pinoy Big Brother: Connect" winners, a hot momma, and an award-winning singer joined this week's episodes of "We Rise Together"!

A week after "Pinoy Big Brother: Connect" concluded, the Big 4 — Kobie Brown, Andrea Abaya, Jie-Ann Armero, and big winner Liofer Pinatacan — joined "PBB Otso" alumni Kaori Oinuma and Rhys Miguel on the March 22 episode.

In the show, the four shared their memorable experiences, particularly Andrea and Kobie, who didn't just find friendship but also love inside Kuya's house.

Kaori and Rhys also took the chance to share some pieces of advice for the two, whose love team was also formed during their "PBB Otso" stint.

"Huwag niyong madaliin. I-enjoy niyo muna 'yung moment na magkakakilanlan kayo. Kasi marami kayong matututunan sa isa't isa. ...Nagla-last forever ang mga bagay na hindi minamadali," Kaori said.

Agreeing with Kaori, Rhys said, "Yan din ang sasabihin ko sa kanila. Pero kay Kobie, paglabas mo ng bahay everyone is gonna be telling mag-practice ka ng Tagalog. So para sa akin 'yun ang pinakaimportante na advice. Kasi 'yun ang pinakamalaking bagay na dapat [matutunan]."

Hot momma Ina Raymundo graced the March 24 episode to promote her upcoming iWantTFC series "Me & Mrs. Cruz" alongside Paulo Angeles.

While their pairing is quite far from the traditional team-ups because of their age gap, Ina said that she didn't have a hard time working with Paulo. In fact, the 23-year-old actor amazed her with his professionalism.

"Si Paulo Angeles napabilib niya ako sa intensity and passion niya in his craft kasi napakahirap ng role niya. Ang haba ng dialogues niya [kasi] poetic siya and maraming siyang monologues, and may singing pa. Nakayanan niya 'yung challenge ng kanyang role," she said.

For the March 25 episode, "Himig 11th Edition" winner KZ Tandingan, who interpreted Daniella Ann Balagtas' "Marupok," joined the show as she shared how she was tapped to sing the winning track.

According to KZ, she was doubtful at first to say yes to become one of the "Himig" interpreters.

"Actually noong una, tinawagan ako ni Sir Jonathan (Manalo) tapos nagsend siya ng kanta. Tinanong niya lang ako if I was willing to interpret another song for 'Himig Handog'. At that time medyo nagdadalawang isip ako kasi sabi ko, 'Kaya ko pa ba?'" she recalled.

"Sabi niya, 'Pakinggan mo muna yung kanta before you decide'. Tapos hindi ko alam, parang na-gayuma ata ako nung song [upon listening] tapos napa-yes agad ako," she added.
