Pinoy Dream Academy is a Philippine television program similar to Big Brother. The second season began on June 14, 2008. Nikki Gil and Toni Gonzaga reprised their roles as hosts of the show, but Gonzaga now handled the main hosting plum while Gil appeared both on the Probation Nights and Little Dreamers Gala/Expulsion Night. Billy Crawford joined this season as the host of the late afternoon edition Pinoy Dream Academy Überture.[1]

A new logo was introduced on the second season, reaturing an old-fashioned microphone and the word "Dream" using a different font than the rest of the title. Also, a new version of the theme song Awit ng Pangarap sang by first season winner Yeng Constantino was used, although the original version was also used, especially during Gala Nights.

Thirty-two potential scholars for the show were introduced with their backgrounds documented in a primer segment aired as part of Pinoy Big Brother: Teen Edition Plus. They were also interviewed on the radio segment Pinoy Dream Academy Dream Minute on WRR 101.9. These thirty-two went through a primary elimination selection from which the final roster of scholars was chosen. These eliminations were aired as a series of episodes called The Dream BIGins from June 9 to 13, 2008.

New to this season was a "Little Dreamers" competition for children aged 6 to 10. On July 6, 2008, twelve children were chosen to become the Academy's resident Little Scholars.[2] In this end, a new puppet named Billilit (portmanteau of "Billy" and bulilit or kid) joins the show as semi-host and Billy's sidekick on Übertube as far as any topic regarding this side competition is concerned.

Scholars[edit]

From the thirty-two potential scholars, the primary eliminations saw the number dwindle to twenty-five. From that number, the faculty re-examined the performances of the scholars to choose the final list of scholars who would enter the Academy. The final roster was announced one-by-one on the Grand Opening Night on June 14, 2008. Only fifteen were chosen and entered the Academy on that day; the sixteenth chosen scholar, Maria Consuelo Osorio, backed out of the competition and the slot left behind would be occupied by one of four "wait-listers" to be decided by the viewers. The "wait-lister" chosen to be the new sixteenth scholar would enter the Academy the next day.

The chosen "wait-lister" was Ranjit "Jet" Singh with 51.70% of the overnight voting. The other three wait-listers Lamberto "Lambert" Reyes (currently known as David Idol), Catherine "Poy" Palma, and Hera "Banig" Redoblado got 20.16%, 17.46%, and 10.68% of the votes respectively.

Palma later entered the Academy as an honorary scholar. Her assignment as the honorary scholar was to try and become a Star Scholar in the Gala Performance Nights. In each time she successfully achieved her goal and become the Star Scholar of the week, she would earn P50,000, which would be deducted from the total cash pool reserved for the Top Three Scholars at the end of the season. If she would become the Star Scholar for three weeks (not necessarily consecutive), she had the option of leaving the Academy and taking home the P150,000 she would accumulate or stay on as an official scholar, therefore forfeiting her winnings. Eventually, she left the Academy without becoming the Star Scholar.

From the Seventh Gala Night onwards, being a Star Scholar entailed having a duet in ASAP with a celebrity a week after. Included dates are the dates when they performed in ASAP.

On the last week, three scholars with very awkward-sounding surnames were given stage names by teacher Jose Javier Reyes. Van and Laarni each had several letters of their surnames changed while Bugoy obtained his based on his mother's maiden name.

On the Pinoy Dream Academy Season 2 Grand Dream Night, the Awards Night, Laarni Lozada was awarded the tile Grand Star Dreamer. Bugoy Drilon was the 2nd Star Dreamer while Miguel Mendoza became the 3rd Star Dreamer. Liezel Garcia, Van Roxas and Cris Pastor were the Top 4, 5 and 6 Finalists of the Academy, respectively.

^ Chivas performed on stage at the second gala performance night as a request when he was told that he will be expelled from the Academy by the Mentors on June 25, 2008.

Organizations[edit]

Unique to the season is the division of the scholars into two groups called "organizations" (sometimes shortened to orgs). The two orgs, Pupilars and One Voice, compete against each other in inter-org games wherein members of the losing org would do the domestic chores inside the Academy, such as maintenance and cooking, while members of the winning org will not only have no chores, they will also get to assist the teachers and mentors during classes.

The orgs each have a weekly budget of P500 per member. During the gala nights, points are scored for each student as usual. Then, the scores for each of an org's members are totaled and the average is obtained. An average score of 7.5 should be obtained for the org to have a new budget for the week. The org's budget is used for any additional expenses as the Academy provides them with basic necessities every week.

Initial members of Pupilars are Chivas, Van, Sen, Bugoy, Cris, Zhel and Sheng. Initial members of One Voice are Bunny, Apple, Bea, Miguel, Iñaki, Ross, Christian and Laarni. As Jet entered the academy, he was given a chance to choose his organization and he chose One Voice. Because of the odd number of initial scholars in the Academy and the subsequent decision by the last scholar to enter, there was an uneven distribution of scholars in the two orgs. Bunny was the first scholar to change orgs. With One Voice's win, they have to give away one member of their org and chose Bunny to go to Pupilars to reunite with her husband, Chivas. Laarni was the second scholar moved from One Voice to Pupilars as a result of One Voice losing a challenge and Laarni volunteering to do the consequence. The final change in orgs happened when One Voice won an inter-org competition and had an option to swap a team member with a member of the other org. One Voice chose Zhel from Pupilars in exchange for Apple of their own org.

On July 9, 2008, Mr. Ryan Cayabyab officially announced that all scholars should work as one team/organization from that day onwards. As a new rule, the GPA of the scholars should be 7.0 or above to have their weekly budget. Because of this, the two orgs merged into one: Acadreamians.

Weekly Song Themes[edit]

Each week, the scholars will sing songs that fit a specific weekly theme. The dates shown are the dates of the Gala Nights.

  • Week 1 (June 21): Songs dedicated to their fathers in celebration of Father's Day
  • Week 2 (June 28): "Buhay Eskwela" or songs about school life
  • Week 3 (July 5): Songs dedicated to their best friends
  • Week 4 (July 12): Duets

^ Pupilars got an initial 7.32 GPA. However because of their win over One Voice in the music video competition, they got an additional 0.5 in their GPA.

Expulsion Nights Elimination Chart[edit]

For this season, the voting procedure has been altered. Among the bottom four scholars, the mentors will save one. Among the remaining three scholars during the first probationary night, the other scholars will vote for who they want to save. The scholar with the highest votes from his/her peers will be saved. In case of ties, the vote of the scholar saved by the mentors will be counted twice. The last two scholars will be up for public voting, and hence be the probationary scholars of the week. By the next gala performance night, the scholar with the higher number of public votes will be saved.

In the second probationary night, the other scholars would vote from the three remaining probationary scholars on who they want to stay as a probationary student. The one with the lowest number of votes is saved from being subjected to viewer's votes.

In the 7th Gala Night, instead of a bottom four, there was a bottom five to accommodate for the losers in the face-offs while in the 10th Gala Night, there was a bottom two due to the discontinuation of saving processes of by the mentors and their fellow scholars, respectively.

^Note 1 : Bunny and Chivas cast their votes in the hospital, where they returned after their performances in the first gala night. Since the mentors already made their decision on which scholar they would save a few hours after that show, Bunny and Chivas already knew the three remaining probationary co-scholars beforehand when they voted the next day. Chivas was sent to hospital two days before the gala night after suffering the effects of hyperventilation; his wife was by his side. Three days after the start of voting however, Chivas collapsed to the floor, again caused by hyperventilation. Concerned, the faculty decided to expel Chivas from the Academy. Laarni was then transferred to Pupilars as a result of a consequence when One Voice lost in their inter-org competition. Voting was stopped because of this and Laarni and Iñaki were therefore saved from expulsion.
^Note 2 : Because of a change of procedure for the second probation night, "'Saved' by Scholars / Scholar's choice" means that the probationary scholar who got the lowest number of votes from his/her peers will be the one who will be saved from being expelled and will not be subjected to viewers' votes. A day after the start of voting, Ross however decided to drop out of the Academy due to the pressure he felt inside the Academy and his concerns for his family. His exit did not affect the voting, however.
^Note 3 : Because of Jet's decision to drop out of the academy, the other three scholars on probation were saved from expulsion.
^Note 4 : The procedure for voting this week was that the scholars will vote for the probationary scholar they want to stay in the Academy, as opposed to the second week in which they would vote for the probationary scholar they want to stay in probation and be subjected to viewers' votes. Although Bea is already a fourth time probationary scholar, she was not expelled due to Jet's decision to drop out on the third probationary night.
^Note 5 : Because the Headmaster's "List of 10" is now complete, an announcement was made that there will be no probationary scholars for the week.
^Note 6 : Probationary scholars were not the actual scholars with the lowest grades. Because of the face-off, whoever receives the lower grade in each pair will be under probation. Among the 10 official scholars, Laarni ranked fourth and is still in probation as she lost in her face-off with Zhel.
^Note 7 : Zhel being the top scorer in the midterm exams, was automatically immune from probation. Because Bunny was the lowest in the midterm exams, she is automatically put on probation. Furthermore, as she wasn't able to make herself part of the top three in the 8th Gala Night, she cannot be saved by her co-scholars. Also, because Laarni was saved by the mentors, her vote counts twice, making Miguel saved even if Miguel and Sen are technically tied in the Scholars' voting.
^Note 8 : After the 9th Gala Expulsion Night, Mr. C informed Poy that she will be leaving the academy after her performance during the 10th Gala Expulsion Night.
^Note 9 : On the 10th Gala Expulsion Night, it was announced that there will be no more bottom four mentioned. Instead, the two scholars with the lowest grades are automatically the probationary scholars of the week, and therefore are subjected to public voting. Also, no top three was announced and instead the Star Scholar was announced immediately.

Finale Weekend[edit]

On September 13 and 14, 2008, the two-day finale, known as the "Grand Dream Nights," were held in the Cuneta Astrodome in Pasay. The first night, known as the Performance Night, showed the final performances of the Top 6 Scholars, overseen by both the mentors and the resident judges. Unlike the past Gala Nights, however, the performances were only for the appeal for votes. This show also saw performances from the hosts and the other scholars who left the Academy (Honorary Scholar Poy Palma was present and was with the other scholars, but Ross Dio and Jet Singh were absent).

The next night, dubbed the Awards Night, Vina Morales and Wency Cornejo performed with the scholars (again including Poy and excluding Jet and Ross) in their opening number. The show also included an early Christmas number by the show's Little Dreamers and several children from Childhope Asia Philippines, as well as a song and dance performance from Billy Crawford and the female mainstays of the upcoming comedy show Banana Split.

Among the Top 6 Scholars, Bugoy Drilon, Laarni Lozada, and Miguel Mendoza were declared the Top Three. Of the Three, Laarni was declared the winner. She won a condominium unit, a business package, appliances, Sony products, and a million pesos.

All votes were gathered from the start of the open voting from the night of August 30 to 2:00 pm of September 14.

Little Dreamers[edit]

The Little Dreamers competition was started on July 6, 2008, for children who are six to ten years old. Twelve children were chosen to compete in this side competition, taking place within the duration of this season. Understandably, they do not stay at the Academy due to regular schooling on weekdays, entering it during weekends to have voice lessons from the Voice Mentors.
