Barbie Imperial was a housemate in the Teen Edition chapter of Pinoy Big Brother: 737.
Barbie was introduced a week prior to her entry in the house. She was first introduced in the afternoon variety show, It's Showtime. She was then officially introduced during the live launch, together with Kamille Filoteo and Bailey May.
Her moniker was "The Doll along the Riles of Albay" due to the fact that she used to live near along the railway tracks ("Riles" means railway tracks) in her hometown in Daraga, Albay as well as having a namesake with a doll.
Despite her short stay inside the house, Barbie accidentally stirred up controversy after admitting she liked fellow housemate Bailey May. Some netizens on social media immediately voiced their discomfort due to the age gap of the two, Barbie being 15 and Bailey who was then barely 13, and was considered the youngest housemate in the history of Big Brother. Other teenage fans who shipped Bailey with Ylona Garcia joined the bandwagon.
Bailey also admitted to Big Brother that he hasd a crush on Barbie. However, another controversy unfolded when Bailey, accidentally asked Barbie if she's still a virgin during a conversation outside the garden area. Knowing it's still a sensitive topic to talk about in the country, Barbie admitted she felt violated about Bailey's question knowing that he's just in his early teens. Bailey said it's normal for him due to the fact that he grew up in the UK where he said it's a normal thing to talk about. Despite his explanation, Big Brother reprimanded Bailey for his unpleasant action and gave him a lecture on how to treat women properly.
Barbie got nominated on the First Nomination Night, along with Bailey May and Kamille Filoteo, making them eligible to compete in the Ligtask Challenge. However, she lose the competition and failed to save herself from the nominations, leaving her and Bailey up for eviction. Unfortunately, she received only 37.84% of save votes while Bailey gathered 62.16% at the end of the week, making her the first ever evictee of the Teen Chapter and also the entire season as well.

Full Name: Barbie Imperial
Origin:Legazpi City, Albay
You could say that Barbie’s name suits her – tall, slim, fair-skinned, pretty and very girly – seemingly perfect, just like the doll with the same name. But Barbie’s life is far from perfect. She grew up not knowing how it is to have a complete family and always longing for her father whom she only gets to see frequently.
She also grew up not knowing how it is to have a house she could call her own – Barbie, her mom and older brother used to stay at a relative’s house until they finally got their own place along the railway tracks of the Philippine National Railroad in Daraga, Albay. But despite the circumstances, Barbie continues to have a positive outlook in life.
For Barbie, anything is possible as long as you believe in yourself and actually do something about it. She dreams of being able to provide a better life for her family, and be able to give her mom a more suitable home they could call their own. And inside the Pinoy Big Brother House, anything is possible. With her family as inspiration, will Barbie be able to prove herself worthy to be hailed as the PBB737 Teen Edition Big Winner?
