…Nengi wins Head of House, escapes eviction
Biggie always has a surprise in store for the housemates and viewers and he reveals them as he deems fit. In yet another twist this season, Biggie gave the housemates a lot to think about during the surprising nomination process this Monday as the fight comes down to the top five.
After Nengi was declared the ninth Head of House (HoH) of the season, she secured her place in the grand finale. However, she did not get to pick a Deputy Head of House (DHoH) to save from possible eviction.
To kick off the nominations, Biggie gave Nengi the duty to remove a veil to reveal the mystery underneath, which turned out to be six bowls placed upside down on a table concealing an item.
The housemates were then asked to pick one bowl each and stand behind it. They were not permitted to choose the same bowl as another housemate. After this was done, they were given three seconds to turn over their bowls and find either white or black headbands. Neo, Dorathy and Ozo ended up with black headbands, automatically putting them in team ‘Black’, while Trikytee, Vee and Laycon all got white headbands, making them team ‘White’.
Both teams, ‘Black’ and ‘White’, had 30 minutes to deliberate and decide which two housemates from the opposing team they would like to put up for possible eviction and write their names down on a sheet of paper provided to them by Biggie.
Team ‘Black’ were zoned to the garden, while Team ‘White’ was confined to the lounge. Biggie did not permit the housemates to whisper while making their decisions and discussing the merit and demerits of nominating each housemate on the opposing team.
The HoH, Nengi, was not allowed to interfere, decide, or have an opinion on who the teams put up for eviction. She was then relegated to the general bedroom in the house and asked to stay there until after the teams have concluded.
After deliberating, team ‘Black’ chose Laycon and Trikytee, while team ‘White’ picked Ozo and Dorathy.
Making Laycon, Trikytee, Ozo and Dorathy the final housemates up for possible eviction on Sunday, 20 September 2020.
