BBNaija: Eviction fever grips housemates as WhiteMoney rules
Angel, Cross, Emmanuel, Saskay, Yousef Know Fate Tomorrow
The BBNaija ships are winning this season as the ‘WhiteQueen/QueenMoney’ ship takes over from EmmaRose in the Head of House suite. WhiteMoney cemented his place as the HoH for week 8 after winning the challenge Monday night.
Big Brother retained the twist from week 7 – the first runner up gets to use the ‘save and replace’ veto power, while the HoH gets immunity and other privileges.
Before the HoH challenge began, the housemates went through the usual nomination rounds, at the end of which had Angel, Yousef, Emmanuel, Saskay, and Nini up for possible eviction.
The rules were the same for this week’s challenge. As expected, there were a few elements that made the challenge harder. The housemates had to loose shoelaces, drink water, pick a bead out of slime and make sure it’s clean before placing it in a glass bowl. They also had to pick a die from another bowl, roll a six to continue the challenge, and walk on a beam with unbalanced items. The competition is getting fiercer as the finale draws near, so housemates were ready to play the HoH challenge to the best of their abilities.
WhiteMoney started the game on a good note by landing on 26. Next, Saga tried to beat WhiteMoney’s time, but luck was not on his side, as he had to restart the game three times. Liquorose also struggled to find a six, and with only 30 seconds left, she barely made it to 9.
The shoelaces stalled Pere’s game, as he ended on tile 16. Cross also battled with the shoelaces, but managed to make it all the way to 18. Queen had a weak game that ended on 4 and left her in tears for a while. Saskay gave the game a good try, but lost steam when she had to down a 75cl bottle of water on tile 9.
Angel couldn’t be bothered to really play the game and ended on 4. Yousef ran fast, but he was defeated by the water bottle on tile 9. Nini ended the game on the same high note WhiteMoney started with. She made it to 25 and became the first runner-up.
This win automatically gave Nini the veto power to save and replace. She promptly removed herself from possible eviction and put Cross up instead.
WhiteMoney also assumed his role as HoH, gaining immunity and making Queen his deputy HoH. This means that Angel, Cross, Emmanuel, Saskay, and Yousef are up for possible eviction on Sunday, 19 September 2021.
With only two weeks left in the BBNaija Shine Ya Eye season, the tension is high and the housemates are desperate to stay in the competition till the very last day! Voting opened on the Africa Magic website, mobile site and via the MyDStv and MyGOtv apps on Monday at 10 pm and closed Thursday, September 16, 2021 at 9 pm WAT.
Meanwhile, after an intense week of mind games, romantic gestures, several kisses and extreme parties, as always, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu took on Big Brother’s stage for the seventh live show of the season, and he came bearing bad news for two housemates. Jaypaul and Jackie B bowed out of the house in one of the calmest eviction shows of the season.
During the Sunday Live Show, Jaypaul was the first housemate to get evicted from the house. Saskay had a relatively calm reaction to his exit, considering that he had gone above and beyond to prove how much he liked her earlier in the week. But, this was expected as she was also up for eviction and didn’t yet know her fate. But, JayPaul left on a high note, telling Ebuka that he had no complaints since he didn’t even expect to make it into the seventh week.
Answering the ‘what next question’, JayPaul said, “Definitely, I’ll be going after lots of TV shows. I’ll drop a body of work, my music as well. And then, lots of films.
I want to be a pioneer for mobile cinematography in Nigeria, so I’ll go back to film school as well. Lots of stuff. I just want to be everywhere for entertainment, you understand.”
Next, Ebuka asked Jackie B to leave the house as she had been evicted. Gracing the other housemates with a big smile, she turned to hug each of them before making her way to the exit. She told Ebuka that she was happy leaving the house because everything that happened was perfectly orchestrated by God. She admitted that she liked Michael enough to pursue a relationship with him, but she had mentally ‘daddy-zoned’ WhiteMoney.
