“Yung magkaroon ng iba-ibang pamilya, ‘yun ang  nagpatatag sa akin ng husto. I am very grateful dahil talagang lahat po ng nagmamahal sa akin ay talagang pinu-push nila ako. So, confident po ako na malaking-malaki ang tulong na nagawa nila sa akin na nagpatatag sa akin ng husto sa buhay ko.”

The Soldier’s Boy of Pampanga, Charlhone Petrone hoped to be back in PBB 737, even as a “wild card” because he felt it was too soon for him to be evicted.  He admitted that he has not started to expose his real self to the viewers to prove that he deserves to be among the Top 4, if not the grand winner.

Charlhone only stayed almost a month inside the Big House when the eviction came.  “Nagkaroon ng task noon si Kuya, ito ang ‘Big Yanig’ kung saan apat kaming nominado.  Hinati kami sa dalawang group so, ang labanan po ay kitchen utencils.  Kailangan makabenta kami ng maraming kitchen para matalo namin ang kalaban. Sa unang araw ay kami ang nanalo kaya lang sa second day, ‘yun lang po, natalo kami. So, lahat kaming apat ay naging nominated.  So, mamimili lang po ‘yung mga housemates, at tatlo kaming natanggal,” he related.

When he went back to the outside world, he felt something weird due to some changes.  “Kasi po, everywhere I go, kilalang-kilala ako. Tapos, sa Pampanga, Valenzuela at kahit saang lugar ako pumunta, talagang may nakakakilala sa akin.  Di ko po masasabing sikat ako, pero kilalala lang,” added the 23-year old evictee.

1231From Florida Blanca, Pampanga, he grew up and raised at Basa Airport where soldiers live.  “Kaya nakatira po kami sa airbase kasi my dad is a soldier.  Lahat po sila talaga ay mga sundalo from mga lolo at mga apo-apohan.  Sobrang pressure po sa akin dahil gusto nilang magsundalo din ako that time.  Naka-plano na talaga ako para masagip ko ‘yung bahay namin sa Air Base kasi once na nag-retire na lahat, possible na mapaalis kami doon. So, ‘yung nga ang nangyari, napaalis kami at nakapagpatayo kami ng bahay sa labas,” he shared.

Just like a teleserye, Charlhone’s life is a drama in itself. He was honest enough to share that he was adopted twice by two sets of families.

“Dalawang beses ako ipina-ampon,” he said. “Ang biological mother ko ay Filipina, and my biological father  daw ay Kano. Di ko alam ang mga pangalan dahil hindi ko sila kinagisnan.  ‘Yung unang set ng parents ang nagsabing mula sa USA ang father ko. Baby pa lang ay ibinigay na ako sa first set of parents ko, at sila ang nagbigay sa akin ng pangalan.

“When I was two years old, ibinigay naman ako sa pangalawang parents ko. Hindi ko alam kung bakit nila ako ibinigay, hindi rin alam ng second parents ko kung bakit ako ibinigay.  Marami akong naging katanungan sa kanila pero wala silang alam. Ang alam ko lang, kasi nga po nabubugbog ako ng first mother ko that time. So, ang ginawa po ng dad ko, ibinigay ako sa second set of parents ko, sila na po ang nag-alaga sa akin hanggang lumaki na.  Sila na rin ang nag-paaral sa akin. Actually, nagkaroon po ako ng limang nanay bale.  ‘Yung biological mom ko, tapos yung nag adopt sa aking ng first, then ‘yung second set na magulang, at may dalawa pa akong tinuturing na nanay.”

A Computer student major in Programming in an international school in Pampanga, Charlhone stands 5’10” and has appeared in several TV commercialsl (Jollibee, Nescafe and Globe Go Sakto to name a few). He has also joined some pageants and became an Olive C candidate. Suddenly, he stopped attending auditions, and decided to work in a construction.  He admitted that there were some friends who told him to join showbiz because he has big potentials.  “Gusto ko makatulong muna sa mga magulang ko, eh at maging independent,” he said.

Last year, he decided to join PBB but he did not make to the audition at Araneta Coliseum.  So, he was instructed to go to General Santos City to take the audition there.  Luckily he passed with flying colors.

In spite of being evicted from PBB, he didn’t feel fmiserable. He was happy because he discovered himself. “Sobrang masaya ako kasi mas nakilala ko ang sarili ko.  “Yung pagkakilala ko sa sarili ko noon ay madaming nadagdag. Kaya, mas na-build yung personality ko,” stressed.

The only that saddened him was the early eviction

because he was hoping that Kuya might help him also in his search for his biological parents, like what he did with other housemates.  “Sana po kasi na-try ko rin hanapin sila pero hindi ko kinaya.  Ang point lang po ng paghahanap ko ay para makilala ko sila at mabuo ‘yung katauhan ko, pero wala akong balak na sumama sa kanila,” he explained.

He also explained that he is not sure what to do when he is given the chance to meet his real parents. “Hindi ko masasabi ‘yan hanggang hindi ko sila makikita.  Hindi ko alam kung anong mararamdaman ko kung kaharap ko na sila.  Siguro, more on questions, pero hindi naman siguro hatred. Ang naisip kong dahilan ay baka hindi ako nila kayang buhayin,” he ended.
