Getting past all of yesterday’s drama, Day 52 started with a quick task that was to help the housemates win back some of the items they had wagered. The frozen chocolate task seemed easy but it wasn’t. Housemates after dressing up like it’s winter were to cut up a slab of frozen chocolate into blocks and eat. They attacked in pairs with ThinTallTony and Efe leading the pack. TTT won over Efe, Bisola won over her partner Tboss but got disqualified because she didn’t cut the chocolate into individual bars, Marvis won over Debie-Rise and Bally beat Bassey in their turn.
Since the theme of the week is still about kindness, the four housemates who won this game picked the seized items belonging to the others rather than theirs. Tboss helped her bestie Debie-Rise get her guitar back while Marvis got Bisola’s precious dress back.
The biggest highlights from today were the Diary Room revelations made by the housemates. ThinTallTony was asked about alliances and cliques, and when it came to the question of who he could conspire with for whatever purpose in the House, he rightly chose Bisola. Note that both housemates used to be in a romantic circle but have slowly drifted apart. Biggie also offered ThinTallTony N1million to quit the show but he refused.
It was Bassey’s turn and as expected, he chose Debie-Rise as his co-conspirator and also turned down Biggie’s N1million offer. Bisola admitted that there were cliques in the house too and without hesitation, chose Marvis as her own co-conspirator. She also refused Biggie’s N1million offer and admitted that she was going to get scolded by her mum for her kissing adventures in the house.
Bally believed that there were friendship bonds in the house but no alliances. He picked his closest pal, Efe as the housemate he could conspire with and also turned down Biggie’s cash offer. He insists he’s not a quitter and would see the show to the finals (this is too obvious). In her session, Tboss turned down the N1million offer as we knew she would but couldn’t quite pick any housemate whom she could conspire with. Although she finally settled for Debie-Rise, she said the latter wasn’t keeping it 100% in their friendship.
Based on logistics, Efe could not pick any co-conspirator among the housemates. Why? He couldn’t trust any of them. But eventually, he went for his bride, Marvis. As for the cash offer, Efe reiterated that the original N25million cash prize and the accompanying car was his goal so Biggie could keep his N1million.
Marvis turned down the money too and chose Bisola as the only housemate she could conspire with, thanks to the bond they both share. For Debie-Rise, the BBNaija platform she already has trumps the paltry cash option Biggie offered so she didn’t want it. Her co-conspirator was Tboss and yes, for her, there was an alliance in the house and all the other housemates were in it except her and her two friends, Bassey and Tboss. How interesting!
What’s worrying is how none of the housemates picked TTT, Bally and Bassey as co-conspirators. Does this say anything about their character? Or does it make them stronger contenders? What do you think?
Later in the day, Biggie’s generosity to the housemates came with a gift of alcohol and the housemates made a big deal of sharing the bottle of whiskey accordingly. They drank and cheered over a game of cards.
