Pinoy Big Brother: Celebrity Edition 2 was the second celebrity edition and the fifth series overall of the Pinoy Big Brother franchise. It started on October 14, 2007, and ended twelve weeks later on January 5, 2008, at the Araneta Coliseum. It was supposed to end on December 22, 2007, but it was announced on November 19, 2007, to be extended for two more weeks.
Toni Gonzaga reprised her role as the primetime host, while ex-Update host Bianca Gonzalez helmed a brand new show, Pinoy Big Brother Über. UpLate host Mariel Rodriguez also hosted Über for seven days with Bianca; but for rest of the program's duration, she was also the House's first and longest-staying houseguest. This new season also marked the hosting debut of second season winner, Beatriz Saw as she hosted the Updates.
The theme song, Sikat ang Pinoy originally sung by host Toni Gonzaga and PBB 1 alum Sam Milby, was rehashed and was performed by Pinoy Dream Academy Grand Star Dreamer Yeng Constantino and PDA finalist Eman Abatayo.
Two-in-One Housemate (2-in-1) - Two celebrity housemates (HM) related in some sort were considered as one unit or HM. Nominations for, text votes for, and eviction of one HM applied to the other as well.
Houseguests - Like the previous season, there are also houseguests who stayed in the House for no more than a specific amount of time without undergoing the nomination and eviction process.
Head of Household - whose role was different from the US version.
Season-Long Tasks - Tasks being given by Big Brother effective throughout the whole duration of the show.
For this Celebrity Edition, the House is the refurbished one used in the second regular season. But unlike the previous Celebrity Edition wherein the housemates entered into an almost empty House, this edition's housemates entered into a royalty-themed house, now containing murals, chandeliers, posh furniture, and lighting fixtures. The gym equipment is now found in the garden. The room previously used by the men in the second regular season is now used by the women, and vice versa. The original bathroom is now the special shower room to be used exclusively by the Head of Household and his/her chosen companion. One of the two original "his-her" restrooms is now the general shower/bath room while the other has become the general restroom.
Also added is a jail cell-like Punishment Room found along the way towards the confession and storage rooms. This is where the housemates who committed violations would stay and perform an assigned punishment until Big Brother's further instructions.
Later, to accommodate Baron and Donald while making their decision on which brother should return to the House area after the fake eviction, the secret room used in the second regular season was again used. It now appears larger and has been repainted white with pink streaks.
