Tom Rodriguez is hoping that people have forgotten his violent outburst
Pinoy Big Brother Double Up’s Tom Rodriguez is one of the few ex-housemates who are slowly establishing showbiz careers. Even if he was not included in the Big Five, the talented and good-looking hunk from Samar is currently busy with TV and movie projects. Aside from an upcoming comedy film, Here Comes The Bride, Tom also appears in Precious Hearts Romances Presents: Love Me Again.
At the press conference for Here Comes The Bride where he plays leading man to Angelica Panganiban and Eugene Domingo, Tom said that he is just thankful for the opportunities even if he was not the Big Winner. Tom was forced-evicted from the PBB house because he repeatedly punched a wall inside the house after his team lost in the challenges.
Tom said that he is not proud of the behavior he had exhibited. “After nung nangyari, dun mo na lang nare-realize na, ‘Ano ‘yung nangyari?’ ‘Yung galit mo sa sarili, ‘yung frustration mo after the punching minsan nawawala, pero ‘yung hiya na ba’t mo nagawa na na-off ako sa sarili ko na ako mismo ang nagsabi kay Kuya na [it was not the right thing to do],” he explained.
Just the same, Tom is hoping that the people have moved on from the incident and that others have learned something from his sudden outburst. “Everyone is capable naman. Hopefully if not [forgotten] they learned from me na makita and nila ‘yung sarili nila sa akin na tao lang ako. Sila din capable sila sa ganun, ‘yung iba, sinasabi ko na ilagay mo ‘yung sitwasyon mo sa sarili ko may mga triggers na ganon. A human being would react that way, but it doesn’t make it right but it makes me human,” he said.
On a personal note, Tom said that the incident has taught him a lot and he has resolved not to let himself succumb to violence. “Kasi before sa buhay ko, walang ganun, eh. Dun lang sa PBB. At least ngayon wala na ulit. It’s just a special circumstance na nangyari na so I can learn from it. Alam ko na ‘yung mga triggers, alam ko na kung paano i-control.”
