The Dashing Dude from Australia got 19.75 percent of the total votes followed by Ryan Bang (18.7%), Fretzie Bercede (15.99%), Devon Seron (15.74%), Ivan Dorschner (15.14%), and Bret Jackson (14.68%) in one of the closest races ever in PBB history.
Reid, who almost got evicted before due to a medical condition, took home P1 million cash, a condo unit worth P3 million, a water-refilling franchise worth P1.5 million, an Asian trip for two, and a 46 inch LCD television. The rest of the Teen Big Six also received cash prizes and a laptop each.
Many stars performed for the thousands of live audience and millions of viewers all waiting to meet the newest Teen Big Winner. Among the showstoppers were Pilipinas Got Talent winner Jovit Baldivino and his co-finalists Keith Cark and the Velasco Brothers, teen sensation Sam Concepcion, teen ex-housemates, PBB Double Up Big Winner and Prinsesa ng Masa Melissa Cantiveros, and Toni Gonzaga.
The whole country witnessed many firsts this season such as the first time in PBB history to have teen housemates from other countries and the first time that six housemates entered the Big Night.
The competition began with housemates living in two houses, the Villa and the Apartment. The Villa housed the teens who lead simple lives, while the Apartment was inhabited by teens who are used to living in comfort.
After a few clashes, all housemates were made to live in the Villa and eventually compete with teen-ternational housemates.
Teen Big Winner James showed strength of character in his stay inside the house as he did his best to get better despite his poor health condition to be able to contribute to the tasks. He will also be remembered for being the knight in shining armor of Tricia when most housemates chose not to go to her birthday party and his being vocal about his love for his father.
ABS-CBN also announced its newest reality show The Biggest Loser the Pinoy Edition debuting soon on Philippine TV.
