Bob dela Cruz (born Jun Bob Dela Cruz on August 10, 1977 in Marilao, Bulacan) is a Filipino politician and was the first forcibly evicted housemate on his 50th day in Pinoy Big Brother's house.[1]

On Day 50, Bob was brought to the hospital for observation due to stress-related symptoms and his momentary loss of consciousness the day before, all caused by a heart ailment. The next day, he was instructed never to return to the house because his 24-hour deadline to re-enter had elapsed. He did return to the house the day after his automatic eviction on Day 51 (October 9, 2005) to formally bid farewell to his fellow housemates.

Prior to PBB, he ran for the position of municipal councilor in his hometown in the 2004 Philippine General Elections but lost. He ran again for the same position six years later, in 2010, under the Liberal Party banner, and this time he won, placing second out of eight.
