Remember that sweet little kid from Davao who entered the Pinoy Big Brother house in 2014? Yup, that was Maris Racal! The meme queen has gifted us with the best type of throwback. She recently watched old clips from Pinoy Big Brother: All In and the cringe has us laugh-crying right along with her.

"Today matutuwa kayo kasi ipapahiya ko sarili ko," Racal started off on her vlog. Definitely a good signal right there. And boy, did she deliver the second-hand embarrassment. "Fun fact: Hindi ko pa napapanood 'yong season namin. Ni isang episode wala akong pinanood kasi hindi ko masikmura," she explains cheekily. And based on her super cringe reactions, we totally see why!

Maris Racal hilariously reacting to old PBB vids is the cringe content you need:

She first watched a clip where Piolo Pascual visited the house—and the sweet then 16-ish year old Racal decided he should hear her play. (Really not an issue when you're a musical genius like her). "Parang batang nagpapakitang gilas," joked the older Racal. Pascual was all supportive and even tried to join her singing Yeng Constantino's "Hawak Kamay." Little Racal's pitch was way too high for him though so he decided to just lay his head on her shoulder.

"Imagine niyo guys, 'yong feeling ko dito," exclaimed the older Racal. We could still feel the butterflies even years later.

"'Yong mukha ni Paolo Avelino parang natatawa," joked Racal—and erm, we have to agree.

Paulo Avelino visited the PBB house as well. Racal recalls the acting challenge they were made to do, as well as the fact that her younger self thought she would 100% be up to it. Baby Racal definitely gave it her all as she pretend-poured her heart out to Avelino! But older Racal could not handle it. "Bakit naman ganoon 'yong pagkasabi ko!?" she laughed, cringing real hard. Her facial expressions? Priceless.

There were more hilarious moments of petty fights between housemates, her freaking out over a challenge, and even some sweet bits between her and that season's winner, Daniel Matsunaga. Racal was the runner-up winner of PBB 2014. Based on this hilarious vlog though, we think she deserves another prize for facing up to the cringe! Watch the entire vlog below:
