In an exclusive interview with RAWR Nation, former Pinoy Big Brother housemate Aizyl Tandugon addressed comments labeling her as ‘arbor queen’.
Aizyl is the sixth evictee of PBB Connect. But, when she was still inside the PBB house, she was not saved from the keen eyes of PBB fans.
They noticed Aizyl’s attitude of being fond of borrowing things from other housemates causing her to be tagged as ‘arbor queen’.
Some netizens enjoyed the attitude of Aizyl, while others criticized her actions.

HM Aizyl umamin kay kuya na naiinggit siya kaya palaging nanghihingi / arbor ng gamit sa mga bagong pumapasok. I understand laki sa hirap.. But girl, ang mga bagay ay pinag hihirapan kung gusto makuha, hindi lahat nadadaan sa hingi

Some netizens sympathized with Aizyl as they know that her family is not wealthy to afford fancy things.

That "arbor" incident just shows na hindi talaga masyadong kinilala si Aizyl as to why sya madalas manghiram. Nag-assume agad sila na palahingi at makapal ang mukha nito kesa intindihin na Aizyl had been deprived. Gosh, privilege. 😞

During the interview, she said that she is aware of the attitude she possesses. Likewise, she admitted that she is only doing it to mend her jealousy of other girls because she cannot afford to buy those things for herself considering that she came from an indigent family.
“Sinasabi ko po sa ibang housemates na hindi ko po mapigilang mainggit sakanila kasi ganun po yung mga gamit nila and ‘yung gamit ko pong dala ay konti lang,” she said.
Aizyl also believes that it is her way to fit in the group.
“‘Nung pumasok si Amanda, Quincy at si Gail, arbor ako agad. ‘Yun nga, parang feeling ko kasi parang gusto ko rin makasama sakanila, paano magpaganda sa sarili, kasi nga po ‘di ako sanay dun,” she said.
She is aware that she was called ‘arbor queen’ because she loves borrowing things from other housemates. Now, she feels guilty because she did not expect that “Kuya” (Big Brother) will notice the attitude.
“Kaya sobrang naguilty rin ako, kasi bakit ako ganyan sakanila, bakit ako lagi nanghihingi,” she said.
“Sabi naman ni Kuya walang masamang manghingi basta bigyan ko lang ‘yung sarili ko ng limitasyon,” she added.
She also shared that even before joining PBB she already possesses that attitude, the reason why she was being seen with the attitude inside the house.
Fortunately, her fellow housemates are very generous in sharing what they have, especially to those people like Aizyl who are at a disadvantage which she expressed her gratitude to those housemates who understood her and shared their things with her.
21-year old Aizyl with the monicker “Miss Malakas ng Misamis Oriental” is a Criminology student. She is considered to be the most nominated PBB housemate of the season, being nominated for five times, before being eliminated on the sixth eviction night.
Aizyl also wants to see Amanda, Kobie, Ella, and Liofer in the final Big 4. But she is betting for Liofer to win the title.
