â€œPinoy Dream Academy is actually a separate franchise, also from Endemol, the same Dutch company behind Big Brother,â€� Dyogi explained.sabi nya pa dun sa interview, "We just want to give PBB a rest this year so that viewers will miss it. We want to protect the PBB franchise." so hayan, hindi tuloy ang pag-aaudition ko dahil wala naman akong balak sumali sa Pinoy Dream Academy. Hindi naman kasi ako marunong kumanta. sorry folks, you will not see me on tv this year. hahahaha!
â€œIn London, itâ€™s called â€˜Fame Academy.â€™ In France, itâ€™s â€˜Star Academy.â€™ In Spain and Italy, â€˜La Academia.â€™ Itâ€™s a lot like PBB in the sense that the students live together. But the difference is that they will be trained to be performers. Big Brother wonâ€™t be around. Instead, thereâ€™ll be a principal and different instructors who will give workshops on singing, dancing and other aspects of performance.â€�
