Its Day 51 and there’s heavy tension in the air as this is the first nomination in two weeks but mostly because there are only a few housemates remaining in the house and the competition is getting hotter with each passing second.
So this week’s nomination show produced four housemates on the line for possible eviction on Sunday. ThinTallTony, Efe, Tboss and Debie-Rise. How did they get here?
Well, Efe’s nomination was easy. He was picked by new Head of House, Bassey to replace Bally who was the initial third nominee until the HoH Save and Replace privilege was used.
For Debie-Rise, all Marvis had to do was use the Power Card she earned when she won the popularity contest last week. Biggie instructed her to nominate one additional housemate in 30 seconds and she picked Debie-Rise.
ThinTallTony and Tboss were the original nominees with the highest number of mentions when the housemates were called into the Diary Room. ThinTallTony was nominated by Efe, Debie-Rise, Bally and Marvis. Meanwhile, Tboss was put up by Bisola, Efe, Bassey and Bally.
The results of the nomination show threw some of the housemates off balance and others even resorted to crying. Apparently, the competition has become more stiff and it’s difficult to take in an eviction at this point where the prize money is just right in front of everyone. What’s also interesting about today’s nomination show is how the housemates put Bally up for eviction just because he had never faced eviction. So we we’re wondering if the game has become about teaching someone a lesson or eliminating your biggest threat…just saying.
Anyway, we got too excited about the nomination show and forgot to mention how Bassey came to be Head of House for the very first time. The housemates converged at the Arena for the HoH game as usual and it was quite simple. The housemate who is lucky to pick a blue stone gets to be HoH while a white stone meant immediate disqualification from the game. TTT lost the HoH title without hesitation as he was first to pick a white stone and a while later, Bassey stood victorious with a blue stone in hand. Recall that he also won at the Arena games on Friday so maybe Bassey saved his winning spirit for this critical time? Maybe?
The theme for the week is social awareness, charity and doing without. We look forward to the sort of tasks Biggie will be coming up with this week.
Campaigns have already begun on social media and things are about to get brutal especially considering that two of the nominated have a huge following. We can’t wait for what Sunday brings. Will Debie-Rise’s tears be able to save her? Will EfeNation (as his fans call themselves) rise to the occasion? Will the negative campaigns against ThinTallTony on social media be effective? And will Tboss be able to “queen” her way to glory?
Who will you be voting for?
