Controversial housemate Russu Laurente evicted from 'PBB' house

    MANILA, Philippines – After Justin Dizon, another controversial housemate Russu Laurente was evicted from the "Pinoy Big Brother" house.

    On Sunday's episode of "PBB: Connect," it was announced that Russu (Ang Bunsong Boksingero ng General Santos) is this season's second evictee after receiving only 4.39 percent of combined Kumu and text votes.

    His eviction means the other nominees, Aizyl Tandugon (14.90%) and Crismar Menchavez (6.87%), will stay for at least one more week inside the house.

    Prior to his eviction, Russu's tweet and opinion on ABS-CBN shutdown made the rounds online and was a hot topic inside PBB house.

    He explained that his opinion was influenced on what he saw on social media. He said that as a person from Mindanao, it was normal for him to express his support to President Rodrigo Duterte.

    "Nag-yes ako sa ABS-CBN shutdown kasi alam mo naman sa social media is grabe makapag-influence. And lahat ng friends ko sa social media is from Mindanao at alam mo naman kapag nasa Mindanao, suportahan talaga nila yung.. alam mo na. Yung nagpasara ng ABS. And yun na influence ako, yung side lang nila ang nalaman ko," Russu admitted on the show.
