The postponement of evictions on Sunday might have provided housemates a necessary reprieve, but the ongoing Big Brother Africa (BBA) returned to its stressful ways straightaway with three housemates nominated for the chop.
The shock nominations shifted the heat to the lesser stars in the reality showâ€™s Downville where South Africa’s Keagan and Lee as well as Namibiaâ€™s Jessica and Junia are up for eviction this week.
It’s either game over or a big test for two Big Brother Stargame housemates come Sunday.
For the first time since the 91-day reality show started on May 6, two housemates stand a chance of joining the stars in the Upville while the unlucky two take the next flight home.
So far, Malawi’s representatives Wati and Alinafe Kulemeka have never been on the chopping list since the commencement of the show.
One nominee from the nominated countries will upgrade to the star-studded house. This means only one housemate will be saved from each pair after a week of voting.
At the eviction show last week, Ugandan guitar virtuoso Maurice Kirya kicked off the show with his hit Misubbawa and DJ Fetty from Tanzania’s Cloud FM kept the studio audience entertained during ad breaks.
Latest evicted housematesâ€”Eve, Mildred and Edithâ€”got to have their say about their time in Downville.
Eve was disappointed to be evicted on her birthday, but called her BBA experience “amazing” and “different” from what she had expected.
Mildred said the ‘hair issue’, which had seen her refuse to take the stage during the eviction show, was the most “ridiculous thing I’ve done.”
“It was two issues. First, it was an emotional breakdown on stage. Second, I was assured to look beautiful on that day and it didn’t happen, so it was more disappointment,” said Mildred.
She added:Â “I was dealing with parting with my partner so I kept my sadness off stage so I didn’t offend anyoneâ€”if I did so, I’m sorry”.
Edith said the experience had been “wild and crazy” and said the game had brought her and her sister closer.
She also revealed she will miss Malawi’s Wati and endangered Keagan most. She said the Malawian made her laugh and the South African brought out the things in her personality she “tries to suppress”.
