Before I say anything, it would probably be best if I made it clear that I support ABS-CBN over GMA. Given that those are the only two options, of course. On the few times I get to catch the new fad of PBB fanatics, PBB Teen Clash… or something, I sense nothing but overwhelming bitchiness. I saw the past PBBs and they were different from this one.
