Pinoy Big Brother: Celebrity Edition is, as denoted, a special edition of Pinoy Big Brother for celebrities and prominent personalities in the Philippines. As advertised, these celebrities may include commercial models, actors and actresses, radio and TV show hosts, musicians, sports and fashion personalities, and even politicians.
Celebrity housemates, like many counterparts abroad, play for charity, aside from themselves. Prizes given away from edition to edition can vary, but basically, the cash prize an edition's winner can receive is the same as the prize for that winner's chosen charity organization, i.e. the winner and his/her charity each win the same amount.
The House used in the Celebrity Edition is typically the same one as used in the regular seasons, but with some modifications done. These changes are noticeable as soon as at least one housemate enters the House.
Generally, the theme song for this edition is the song Sikat ang Pinoy ("The Filipino is Famous") by Sam Milby and host Toni Gonzaga, pertaining to the personalities in this edition and the various quests of ordinary Filipinos for fame in any field.
Currently, there are no plans for the renewal of this edition.

Famous quotes containing the words edition, celebrity and/or big:
“I knew a gentleman who was so good a manager of his time that he would not even lose that small portion of it which the calls of nature obliged him to pass in the necessary-house, but gradually went through all the Latin poets in those moments. He bought, for example, a common edition of Horace, of which he tore off gradually a couple of pages, read them first, and then sent them down as a sacrifice to Cloacina: this was so much time fairly gained.”
—Philip Dormer Stanhope, 4th Earl Chesterfield (16941773)
“The hero was distinguished by his achievement; the celebrity by his image or trademark. The hero created himself; the celebrity is created by the media. The hero was a big man; the celebrity is a big name.”
—Daniel J. Boorstin (b. 1914)
“a big picture of K. Marx with an axe,
Where I cut off one it will never grow again.
O Karl would it were true
Id put my saw to work for you
& the wicked social tree would fall right down.”
—Gary Snyder (b. 1930)
