This is what Robi Domingo said about the epic history knowledge of the teen housemates of PBB.
ROBI DOMINGO – Kapamilya host Robi Domingo reacts to the epic PBB quiz bee and said something about the educational system.
“Pinoy Big Brother” recently held a quiz bee to teen housemates but the way they answered the questions about history alarmed many people. Was it the fault of the teachers? Was it the fault of these teens? Or was it the flaw of the educational system in the country?
In the clips getting viral and circulating online, the teen housemates failed to answer common questions regarding Philippine history. It was, of course, funny at first but in the long run, viewers, instead of laughing, aired their dismay and disappointment at how clueless these teens were about that common knowledge that was asked.
And this has ignited calls to bring back Philippine History in the high school curriculum. Among the most epic part was when these two female housemates wrongly answered the collective name of the three martyred priests sentenced to death by the Spaniards.
Host Robi Domingo asked, “Ang tatlong Catholic priests na sina Mariano Gomez, Jose Burgos, Jacinto Zamora na hinatulan ng kamatayan noong panahon ng Kastila ay mas kilala sa tawag na…?”
The first to press attempted to answer “MarJo” trying hard to grab something from the names but she was wrong. And the second one answered “MaJoHa” which is also wrong. In history, it has always been known that the three martyred priests are called called “GomBurZa”.
Reacting to this, Robi, the host, admitted that what happened was at first funny for him. He tweeted, “Sa una, nakakatawa pero habang tumatagal, ‘di na nakakatuwa. Sana maging daan ito para makita kung ano ang kakulangan sa sistema ng ating edukasyon.”
