Neil Salvacion, the ex-boyfriend of reigning Miss Universe Philippines Rabiya Mateo, is vying for a spot in the upcoming “Pinoy Big Brother: Kumunity” and has sent in his audition tape.
After introducing himself, Neil shared a little about what he does in the 58-second clip.
“Ako po ay isang COVID nurse na dapat maga-abroad, pero mas piniling manilbihan dito sa bansa bilang isang frontliner,” he said. “Sa araw-araw na ginawa ng Diyos, ang buhay ay hospital, bahay. Minsan, masisilayan mo ang huling hininga ng mga pasyente. Ito at iba’t ibang hugot sa buhay ang aking maiaambag sa ‘PBB: Kumunity’ — kung paano ang buhay ng isang frontliner.”
Neil then went on to talk about the challenges that come with his job, but added that he took the heartbreak from his split with the beauty queen a lot harder.
“Dumating ang panahon na bawal kang lumapit sa mga mahal mo sa buhay dahil hindi mo alam kung positive or negative ka, kailangan mo mag-isolate,” said Neil.
He continued, “Nakakalungkot man mag-isolate ng ilang buwan, mas nakakalungkot pala maiwan ka ng taong minamahal mo dahil sa pangarap nitong korona. Coronavirus o korona sa patimpalak ay ilan lamang sa mga hamon sa aking buhay. It’s about time for me to share my story, how I conquered them, and how will I inspire other people.”
Then he ended his message with, “Bagong bahay, bagong buhay, bagong mga hamon sa buhay. Muli, ako po si Neil Salvacion, 27, ang frontline nurse ng Iloilo City”
The upcoming season is the reality show’s 10th, which will be divided into three categories: celebrity, adults, and teens.
Neil and Rabiya were in a relationship for six years before confirming their breakup last June.
