Pinoy Big Brother: Teen Edition Plus was the second edition of Pinoy Big Brother for adolescents 16 to 19 years. It is the sixth series overall in the franchise. It premiered on Easter Sunday, March 23, 2008, and ran for eleven weeks, ending on June 7 of the same year.
Toni Gonzaga returned as primetime host; this was also the first Teen Edition that she would be hosting. Mariel Rodriguez, the previous Teen Edition primetime host, also returned to host the late afternoon edition, Pinoy Big Brother: Teen Edition Plus Über. Bianca Gonzalez once again hosted the show's Update skits after being the regular host of Über in the second Celebrity Edition; she once hosted the Update slot back in the second regular season. Luis Manzano made his return to the show as Gonzaga's alternate host/co-host in the primetime edition; he appeared previously as co-host in a live airing of first Celebrity Edition.
There are several reasons the word "Plus" was added to the edition name. One, as had been already stated, was Luis's return to the show. The second reason was the two housemates added to the announced twelve, both connected to the storied Ateneo De Manila University-De La Salle University rivalry. The third was the secret area Luis revealed during the opening night of the edition. These rooms were occupied by the Housemates' Guardians, who were also the fourth reason. The fifth reason was the two House Players, whose function was similar to America's Player in the eighth season of the American version.
Unlike Pinoy Ako and Sikat ang Pinoy, both of which were rehashed, the original Kabataang Pinoy by Itchyworms was used for this season without any alterations. A remixed version of the song (which combines its beat with those of Crank That and Smack That to name a few) was used throughout the opening night.
Ejay Falcon of Oriental Mindoro emerged as the season's winner.
Guardians - On Day 7, fourteen adults entered the House and, in a similar rein to the Big Mother concept of the Greek version, these "Guardians" (as the program calls them) are in the House to watch over the Housemates. There will be also a Guardian Big 4 and Guardian Big Winner, which will be independent from the Teen Big 4 and Teen Big Winner.
Immunity Challenges - Several challenges were held in the house which granted immunity from being nominated to the winner.
House Players - Similar to America's Player featured in Big Brother 8 (U.S.), the House Players each attempted a series of tasks for two weeks each based on the results of an SMS viewer poll. The House Players were rewarded P10,000 each for every task they complete.
Teen Grand Council - The final five housemates were faced by former housemates, house players and guardians by being asked by them regarding issues they had in the past weeks.
The primer revealed the new look of the House interior, which Manzano described as having a "funky, modern Moroccan" design with more elegant and colorful furnishings. Also, the "garden" was now dominated by a large swimming pool. Furthermore, the new housemates entered the House area through the facade instead of the Eviction Hall as housemates in the second regular edition and the second Celebrity Edition did.
Also, what used to be the activity area was a part of the House called a "Plus Base." It had additional bedrooms, a garden, and a jacuzzi; it was occupied by the Guardians. Conversely, part of the Eviction Hall was renovated into the new activity area.
