He garnered a total of 40.02% of votes with 18.58% lead from 2nd Big Placer, Pamu Pamorada.[1]

Weeks after his winning, Young made several guest appearances in the network and with the premier of the new season of Pinoy Big Brother only a week after his victory, speculations rose that he is pressured of debuting quickly to the entertainment industry.[2] In April 13, Young played his first acting role as a guest star in the series finale of E-Boy opposite Jessy Mendiola.[3] In April 28, Young continued his acting stint via the drama anthology Maalaala Mo Kaya as Andrei with veteran actress, Dimples Romana and PBB: Unlimited's 4th Big Placer, Paco Evangelista.[4]
