Marco Gallo was a teen housemate in Pinoy Big Brother 7.

He's dubbed as the Pilyo Bello of Italy as he describes himself as a naughty and lazy teenager. Pilyo is a Filipino slang for naughty while Bello is an Italian word for handsome.

While inside the house, he formed a close relationship with Edward and Heaven though however, it resulted on having a divide inside the house especially among Heaven and the rest of the girls.

He was also known inside the house as a sleepyhead who always have a hard time of getting up in the morning.

On Week 7, while having a break during their 2nd Lucky Task which was to recreate Rita's shanty house, Marco got into an intense confrontation with Christian Morones after he poured water on the sleeping Christian. It was intended as a prank, however Christian was insulted by such act. It escalated into an intense exchange of words. It temporarily ended when they were sent from the activity area back to the house but their fight reached and continued inside the house. Marco approached Christian to apologize but the offended Christian decided it wasn't the right time, but instead of settling down it once again escalated into a heated argument. Seeing the confrontation and hearing all the shouting, young Rita couldn't avoid but to cry and worry about what was happening inside the house, Kisses Delavin and Vivoree Esclito brought her to the girls' bedroom and tried to comfort her instead while the other teen housemates like Edward Barber and Maymay Entrata intervened to their confrontation just to end the heated argument. They tried to settle things down which they eventually did.

On Week 11, Marco confessed his admiration to his fellow housemate, Vivoree who was one of his closest female friends in the house. Also on that same week, he had a misunderstanding with Kisses Delavin, who had some secret feelings for him. It was when Kisses rejected Marco's plea to get him a bread in the Kitchen. But Maymay and Yong were napping on Kisses' lap and didn't want to wake them up. Kisses then brought back the moment when she asked for chips after their pageant task but then Marco didn't give her in which he said only Vivoree could tell that to him. However, Kisses took it seriously. An argument came, which offended Kisses and brought her to tears. He never knew about Kisses' secret until he got evicted.

On Week 12, Marco was nominated and for the first time for the teens, the eviction would be decided by the public. At the end of the week, Marco gathered 7.98%, evicting him out of the house.

The Pilyo Bello of Italy

Prior to joining Pinoy Big Brother Lucky Season 7, Marco Gallo said that he is just an ordinary boy from Milan where he met Filipinos and earned a following on Facebook.

Although he did not go viral online, he shared how it happened. “While in college, I met a Filipino in Italy. It's the time where it started to grow. Then I started adding my fellow Filipino classmates on Facebook as well as their friends living in the Philippines, they saw it so they added me back. In just one day, I already had 3000 Facebook friend requests and I added all of them. Until a week passed, it even grew up to 5000,” he said, adding that he was not able to add the others as his account is already full.

In school, he shared how he did everything to pull up his grades in the subjects he is not doing well last year. He said he considers this a great achievement.

In one word, Marco described himself as “naughty.” He also said that he joined PBB to know about the culture of the Philippines. “Because the last time that I went to the Philippines was way back in 2008 and I kind of forgot now what the Philippines looked like,” he said.

Saying that he idolizes former PBB housemates James Reid and Bailey May, he hopes people will like him like how they like them as well.

While he said he has no strategy inside the house, he said that he will try to improve himself as that is what PBB is about. He said that he will try to give his best, the reason why he should be the Big Winner. He said his motto is Carpe Diem, meaning to “Seize the day.”

According to Marco, he is good with sports. He also knows how to cook and would like to cook Sinangag (Filipino fried rice) and Italian pasta inside Big Brother’s house. When asked to describe what ‘love’ is for him, Marco said, “It’s something that arrives when you don’t expect.” While he said ‘family’ is always beside you, he said ‘youth’ should be used well as it is not forever. He described God as a friend. [1]
