Rico Barrera (born Frederick Barrera on December 29, 1981 in Olongapo City, Philippines) was the first housemate evicted from the 12 housemates of Pinoy Big Brother (season 1).
Prior to entering the house, Rico was a singer in Japan. He was the first housemate evicted, on his 21st day in Pinoy Big Brother's house. Among the violations that put him automatically into nomination were jumping into the pool while still wearing his lapel microphone and accidentally causing a pan to catch a flame, setting off the fire alarm.
Barrera reportedly transferred to GMA 7 from ABS-CBN 2 last August 2009, due to his no projects of Kapamilya Network. He's now launched his first Kapuso Network TV show, "Sine Novela Presents: Tinik Sa Dibdib". He's the 2nd Ex-PBB Housemate transferred to GMA 7 after fellow ex-housemate Say Alonzo also transferred to GMA since 2008. But recently he return back to Kapamilya Network again in 2010 and he is one of the cast of Magkano Ang Iyong Dangal?.
