BBNAIJA 2019: Biggie surprises the housemates with a new twist

Known for utterly switching up the narrative of the game, Big Brother as yet again added another twist making the Pepper Dem Gang housemates sit tight to this new development.

This is coming after the introduction of five housemates: Cindy, Elozonam, Venita, Joe, and Enkay who were added to the show making the housemates 19 all over again and Jeff’s eviction on Sunday, August 4, 2019, who was nominated for eviction alongside Tacha, Mike, and Omashola. Jeff who became the first head of house in the Big Brother House bid the housemates farewell after Ebuka announced his eviction becoming the 8th housemate to leave the house.

Week 6 with the big twist, with Seyi becoming the Head Of House after winning the roll the ball challenge within a space of 45 seconds. We expected he would pick Tacha to share the Luxury room after the bond they shared when they were in the secret room but decided to give us a shocker by picking Esther. Could this be coming from the rift he once had with Frodd as a strategy to spite him?

But the major highlight of this week came with Big Brother cancelling nomination. So instead of the weekly normation in the diary room, Biggie gathered the housemates to the arena where he made the announcement to divide the housemates into two different teams. The housemates were made to pick one armband from a drum for each gender which contained both red and green armbands thereafter standing in position in a  box with the matching colour of the armband and also requesting them to come up with a team name which they named ‘The Icons’ and ‘Cruisetopia’ respectively to compete in Big Brother Naija Challenges.

Also adding to the twist all the Housemates will henceforth play all the Big Brother game in their selected teams thereby the team Challenges will be designed to reward the winning Team and punish the losing Team. They no longer have the usual Nomination process of putting up fellow Housemates up, instead, they will be having Nomination Challenges. The losing team of the Nomination Challenge will automatically have all the team members up for possible Eviction. This also affects the wager task where the winning team will have weekly supplies while the losing team will have nothing.

This new twist has changed the Game as team members have each other to count on to survive being put up for Eviction. We cant wait to see how this new twist plays out.
