MANILA, Philippines – There's a new season of Pinoy Big Brother coming up and two of the housemates in season 7 have already been revealed.
On Saturday, July 2, it was revealed on It's Showtime that McCoy De Leon and Nikko Natividad of the group Hashtags are going to be living in Kuya's big yellow house soon.
Hashtags is an all-male dance group that regularly performs on It's Showtime, and has its own former PBB housemates among its 11 members – Zeus Collins, Jameson Blake, and last season's teen big winner, Jimboy Martin.
During the July 2 episode of Showtime, their number was interrupted with an announcement from Kuya.
Aside from naming the two boys the first housemates, he also implied that they will be considered one housemate: "Kayo ang magiging kinatawan ng inyong grupo sa loob ng aking bahay. Kaya kayong dalawa ay magiging isa."
(The two of you will be the representatives of your group in my house. So the two of you will be one.)
Nikko and McCoy were also called "two-in-one housemates" on the show's social media posts later on.

Their first task for PBB is to get ready for the show in 48 hours, since they still have other commitments and projects ongoing.
The first episode of PBB season 7, nicknamed PBB Lucky 7, will air on July 11. The hosts for this season are Bianca Gonzalez-Intal, Robi Domingo, Toni Gonzaga, and Mariel Padilla. – Rappler.com
