With just a week to go on the ongoing Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) reality TV show, three housemates — Lolu, Khloe and Anto — have been evicted.
Miracle and Cee-C were the two of five nominated housemates who survived eviction night.
This leaves five finalists to contend for the star prize.
It is the 77th day of the show, and the semi final week. As expected, the five housemates up for eviction had their hearts pounding.
But at the end of it all, Anto, Khloe and Lolu were evicted.
Khloe and Anto have obviously outlived their days of grace as they were finally evicted from the House. They were both brought back in the first of its kind after they were first ejected. But the bubble has finally burst for them and they’re out for good.
For Khloe, tonight marked her first Eviction. Khloe one of the two Housemates to have been Disqualified earlier in the season and Anto had returned into the House determined to give the best of themselves. While Khloe’s sensible and caring side came out more, Anto’s leadership and vulnerability will remain in the BBNaija chronicles.
For some reason, Lolu had also anticipated his own Eviction having confessed an unusual nervousness. The self-effaced geeky Housemate had entered the House with his simple and unpretentious manners that could nonetheless not be discarded by any of the other more flamboyant characters. If anything, thanks to his irresistible brains, Lolu has offered a sweet revenge to all those whose need for love has gone unfulfilled by winning the minds and hearts of his peers.
Before the final eviction, Biggie called the House into the Arena, where ten suitcases were lined up, awaiting for the eight remaining Housemates to open them. The aim was for Housemates to secure another Wager victory, in light of a slight twist: each suitcase contained a small gifts, but only one held a cash reward. Biggie instructed Housemates that whoever opened the suitcase containing the money reward would have a claim on the reward, yet also automatically imply that the entire House lost the Wager.
Hanging in suspense
At the sound of the buzzer Housemates came forward and had two minutes to take position behind their chosen luggage. The suspense kept everyone on their toes, as they touched, lifted and shook the cases in their hands – all in the full awareness they were not to open any until instructed so by Biggie. Then Biggie instructed Housemates to open their numbered suitcases to reveal the content.
It’s not over yet
While Nina and Tobi had difficulties opening theirs, Miracle looked unsure whether to smile or not upon learning he had won a two hundred thousand Naira, for it also meant the entire House had lost the totality of their Wager. Meanwhile Biggie had called Lolu, Tobi, Miracle, Nina and Alex back to the lounge, leaving Anto, Khloe and Cee-C standing in the Arena, waiting to find out their fate.
