MANILA, Philippines - Already nearing its climax is ABS-CBN's popular reality TV show "Pinoy Big Brother: Teen Edition 4."
The show recently named its Big Four, with show host Toni Gonzaga announcing the eviction of contender Ryan Boyce Monday.
Boyce's exit made formal the entry of twins, Joj & Jai Agpangan of Bacolod, Negros Occidental, into the final cast, which already includes Myrtle Sarrosa, Karen Reyes and Roy Requejo.
Boyce, who hails from Angeles, Pampanga received the lowest percentage of vote during last weekend's voting garnering only 6.36% total.
It was the second lowest percentage of votes for this season's contestant, next to Alec Dungo, last week's evictee, who got 5.35% prior to his ouster.
Over the weekend, fans of the show allowed the highest vote for Housemate A with 39.58%, followed by Housemate B with 26.76%, and Housemate C with 12.10%.
The names of the top three finalists as per number of votes weren't revealed and the voting has been reset to 0% going into the finals.
The PBB Teen Big Winner of this season will be announced on the Big Night, July 7, 2012 at the Malolos Sports and Convention Center, Malolos Bulacan.
"Pinoy Big Brother: Teen Edition 4" premiered last April.

None too soon, Vice Ganda coined a new expression, "PBB Teens?" which became a punchline of sorts for jokes about matters that occur too fast.
