The first taste of anxiety that usually greets contestants of Big Brother reality show occurred on Sunday, when some of the housemates who were earlier nominated in a supposed eviction were all packed in anticipation of possible ejection from the show.
Although the real situation was known to fans of the show who didn’t have to bother trying to keep their favaourite housemates in the house through public voting, the housemates soon knew it was all a hoax after show host Ebuka Obi-Uchendu jostle with tension by first announcing that some of them have been saved, and after a long straight face, disclosed to them it was all one of the tricks of Big Brother.
It was just two weeks of the show and the third live show which featured Nigerian singer Niniola who performed ‘Maradona’ and ‘Sicker’ to the delight of the studio guests.
The housemates all heaved a sigh of relief, just as the strategic partners came together for new strategies, knowing real eviction will begin this Sunday.
As Ebuka puts it, at least, two pairs will be eviction during Sunday’s live show.
The new week began immediately with Head of House task in which all male housemates and Vandora were disqualified for disobeying rules of the game. Khloe eventually emerged Head of House after competing with Ifu and Bambam.
Ironically, Tobi who had been Head of House for two weeks in a row could not enjoy the immunity that comes with the position, as there were no evictions all the while. He and his pair, Cee-C are at the mercy of other housemates who have not had it good with Cee-C, including Teddy A/Bambam whom Tobi put up for possible eviction in place of Miracle/Nina.
