MANILA, Philippines – Jimboy Martin and Miho Nishida were declared the Big Winners of “Pinoy Big Brother 737” after garnering the highest number of public votes at the program’s Big Night held at the Albay Astrodome in Legazpi City last night (Nov 8).
Jimboy, the 17-year-old “Barrio Rapper of Nueva Vizcaya,” was named the Teen Big Winner for getting 56.76% of the votes, while Teen Second Big Placer Ylona Garcia got 43.24%.
Big Winner Miho Nishida, the “Sexy Mommy of Japan” won by landslide with 81.96% of the votes, while Second Big Placer Tommy Esguerra gathered 18.04%.
When asked what he wants to do now that his PBB journey is over, Jimboy said, “A simple life is okay for me as long as I’m with my family. But they helped me build my dream to be the Teen Big Winner… I will grab whatever opportunity comes my way.”
Miho, meanwhile, cheerfully thanked the Albay crowd for their support after hugging her mother and daughter Aimi.
Jimboy and Miho were both granted an Asian tour package, a house and lot, and P1 million. This is the first time that “PBB” announced two Big Winners in a Big Night.

Awarded last Saturday (Nov 7) were third Big Placers Franco Rodriguez and Roger Lutero who won P300,000 each, while Fourth Big Placers Bailey May and Dawn Chang were given P200,000.
Fresh from Albay, the Teen Big 4 and Adult Big 4 were welcomed to Manila by the hosts of “It’s Showtime,” as well as their fans in a grand fans’ day held Monday (Nov 9).
For the past ten years, the “PBB house” served as a home to Filipinos from all over the world who showcased their talents, and demonstrated the importance of caring for others, sacrifice and love for the family, and being true to oneself.
And to celebrate its milestone year, the “PBB 737” Big Night served as the biggest reunion of housemates from the past editions, led by previous Big Winners Kim Chiu, Daniel Matsunaga, Ejay Falcon, Myrtle Sarrosa, Slater Young, Keanna Reeves, and Nene Tamayo.
People from Albay also showed their support from the program as more than 17,000 people were estimated to have showed up at the venue on the first night of the Big Night last Saturday (Nov 7).
The Big Night was led by hosts Mariel Rodriguez-Padilla, Robi Domingo, Enchong Dee, and Toni Gonzaga-Soriano.
