Big Brother's parrot made a second appearance today and it left the house distracted from the task at hand.
Parrot 2nd time

In a dramatic turn of Thursday events in the All Stars house, a parrot playback during a film shoot for a wager task ignited a war of suspicion among the housemates. The incident occurred during a recent film shoot for their wager task, which had already taken an emotional toll on the housemates due to the intense preparations. 

Watch the parrot scatter the house: 

The parrot's playback exposed some hidden truths within the house. Doyin initially denied commenting on Kiddwaya's weight, but later admitted to it, revealing the underlying tensions between the two. Their relationship had been tumultuous, marked by moments of friendship and conflict.

Another key instigator of the turmoil was Seyi, who, in response to the parrot playback, sought clarity from various housemates about the contents of the audio. Seyi admitted that he had been the one to remark about Doyin, suggesting that she was manipulating Ilebaye. The recording referred to Doyin as Ilebaye's "puppet master." The comment struck a nerve, as Doyin expressed her displeasure at the insinuation that her parents had not raised her well. Seyi eventually apologised for his hurtful words, and Doyin graciously accepted. Seyi's explanation for his comment about Doyin to Ilebaye further adds to the complexity of the situation. While he initially attributed his comments to the heat of the moment, he later tried to rationalise his statement to Ilebaye. 

The parrot has, however, seemed to solidify Doyin and Ilebaye's friendship when they heard that Seyi expressed how happy he was they fought after the Saturday Night Party. Doyin said they will never fight again in front of these people, and hugged it out, sharing their love for each other. 

The question remains whether the brewing tensions will continue to simmer beneath the surface. The tensions stemming from the parrot's playback have cast a shadow over the housemates' preparations for upcoming challenges. Even a seemingly simple task, such as auditioning for the role of quiz master, became a daunting challenge. 

Tonight the housemates partake in the arena games and then the pool and grill party. Some housemates have discussed their inability to continue recording after the party. As the housemates brace themselves for the upcoming wager task, the question looms whether the ongoing drama will have an impact on their performance and lead them to a wager loss. Will the parrot's unexpected role in fomenting discord cause chaos and distrust in the house?
