THE moment Ryan Bang opened his mouth to answer questions from showbiz reporters, the whole room cracked into laughter when he said he will replace Big Brother in the PBB House.
The 19-year-old Management student at De La Salle University said he also "want to work with Enchong Dee and Manny Pacquiao”.
He clarified that he is "not a gay", citing Enchong was very good to him when he went inside the house and surprise him on his birthday. He also is a die-hard fan of Pacquiao.
Ryan likes to do comedy role if given a chance in the entertainment world, and plans to juggle his studies and showbiz career.The ex-housemate said that it was his father, a taxi driver in Korea, who has been his inspiration to finish college and to earn money.
“I am really proud of my dad, I'm so like him. He's very funny and so cool. He's like my best friend and he's been there for me no matter what," he said, adding that most of his friends in Korea want to stay in their house because of his dad.
Inside the house, Ryan has been very vocal that if he wins the grand prize, he will help his father get a new car.
He was also glad that Big Brother gave him the opportunity to send a gift to his dad during Father's Day. “I know the rubber shoes are very special to him. He's been very hard working man.”
Though Ryan was not fortunate to take home the grand prize, he received P500,000, which he will be using for school and other needs here in Manila.
For him, it was more of a surprise than disappointment to be in the second place.
“I wasn't really expecting to be on the second place. I was really shocked I was like the Statue of Liberty,” he said.
Ryan is thankful to everyone who voted for him and Big Brother.
Big Brother taught the "Simpatikong Lider of Korea" that it takes more than just good look's to gain the unending love of the people.
“I'm really not good looking and not good in English and he told me to be confident about myself because a lot of people loves me for who I am," he said.
