Ese and Jon

After the two new housemates Debbie Rise and Bassey joined the Big Brother house, many thought that would be end of surprises in the show. But who would have thought that Biggie still had so much up his sleeves.

It took everyone by surprise when during the live eviction show Big Brother again introduced two new housemates Jon and Ese. However, the twist is that are both fake housemates!

Now in its fourth week, the tempo has not slowed down. Viewers are excited over the new twists, Social media platforms are on fire, regardless of the fact that the new housemates are there solely to spice up the drama and possibly break up the cliques and alliances and perhaps forge new ones. It is the general opinion that the game is beginning to take a more intriguing dimension and only those who know how to turn with the tide will survive it.


Since the announcement by MultiChoice Nigeria that the season two of the Big Brother Nigeria show will come back to the screens, a few people were skeptical whether the show will be worth all the hype and buzz. If anything, it has been a highly interesting show and everyday, housemates seem to let go of their initial inhibition and truly be themselves. The Saturday parties before the live eviction have become another interesting aspect of the show.

At the last gig, housemates may have been a little tipsy from all the alcohol supplied by Biggie. This emboldened them to again embark on the ‘Truth or Dare’ game that require them to tell that truth about a question asked or dare them to do something crazy. This time around, CoCoIce, who was eventually evicted, was dared and without wasting much time, she unzipped her dress and proceeded to respond to the dare, which sent the Internet on a meltdown.

Ese and Jon’s mission is to create even more drama and give housemates a run for the N25 million prize money. Unknown to the housemates, the new guys are not in the game for the ultimate prize; they are there to infuse confusion and possibly evoke deeper emotions from other housemates. Who says winning N25 million is going to be an easy task?

During the diary session with housemates, Biggie asked what they thought about the new housemates. It was a unanimous view that Ese is giving Bisola a run for her money on who the loudest housemate is. Winning the task of the week and getting the Head of House title made it an arduous task for anyone to relegate Ese, who is beginning to hold sway. Ese herself has been quite assertive and playing the game with gusto. She is surely one of the ladies to look out for.

As for the guys, it is obvious that cute Jon is a threat. Although he assured Ebuka he was not going to be another ‘Miyonse’, he is already very close to TBoss. It is the general opinion that she may be missing Miyonse very much, which is why she is attracted to the light-skinned Jon. Jon says his sight is set on Bally who has been very quiet and coasting slowly to the finish line. Bally is confident so much so that he has not put his Green Card to use. This gives credence to Jon’s observations. With the current chemistry between him and TBoss, one wonders if Jon will be focused on his mission or if a pretty lady will distract him.
