Twists as Big Brother introduces four new housemates
• Yerins, Beatrice Niyi Head Home
The first evictions of the Shine Ya Eye edition last Sunday night came with some very shocking twists. The show host, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, revealed four new housemates – Michael, KayVee, JMK, and Queen as Yerins, Niyi and Beatrice were evicted from the show.
This shocking twist has taken the competition up a notch as there are now 23 housemates vying for the grand prize for this season.
Michael Chukwuebuka Ngene is a 28-year-old singer-songwriter and aspiring filmmaker from Enugu State. Born in Lagos, he moved to the United States of America as a teenager but is currently based in Abuja. He promises to spice things up in the house by initiating things and keeping his eyes on the prize. His motto is ‘catch cruise, forget’.
Gbolahan Ololade is a 26-year-old photographer. His hobbies include playing football, clubbing and playing cards. He has so much positive energy and promises to bring all the dance moves from the streets to the show. He says one of the most significant issues he’s dealt with is police harassment because of his style.
Jumoke Zainab Adedoyin, who describes herself as “a sexy, confident and adventurous foodie” who loves to help people, is a 23-year-old law graduate. She has dreams of becoming a certified member of the Nigerian Bar. She is ready to slay in the house and will most likely be getting in many fights because she doesn’t like to be crossed.
Queen Mercy Atang considers herself a true leader and an excellent communicator who is very calculating, loyal, and peaceful. The 26-year-old is a philanthropist and aspiring politician. She doesn’t like wearing clothes and promises to show off her ‘cute and sexy’ body.
After Big Brother’s unexpected twists, fans expected him to continue on that trajectory, and he didn’t disappoint. He exempted the newly admitted housemates, Michael, KayVee, JMK, and Queen, from playing the Head of House game of chance and nominations on Monday night. The freshly crowned Head of house, Pere, was also immune from nominations as the housemates got to nominate two people each for possible eviction next week.
At the end of the process, Cross, Jackie B, Liquorose, Sammie, and Yousef did not receive nominations from their fellow housemates. Jaypaul, Maria, Peace, Boma, and Whitemoney received one nomination each from different housemates. On the other hand, Saskay and Angel received two nominations each and were technically safe.
Emmanuel, Saga, and Nini all received three nominations and were all technically up for eviction. Tega received five, Arin received seven, and Princess received eight nominations, securing their place on the chopping block.
As always, the Head of house, Pere, got to save and replace one of the nominated housemates with another. Although he seemed torn between Nini and Saga, he chose to keep Saga and replace him with Saskay. This placed her up for possible nomination alongside Emmanuel, Nini, Tega, Arin and Princess.
Big Brother also used the opportunity to address house issues like – whispering, speaking in hushed tones, and hiding words by talking through the teeth. He reminded the housemates that there are consequences for their behaviour. Enjoy the full BBNaija seson 6 experience, 24/7 on DStv channel 198 and GOtv Max and Jolli on channel 29.
