Day 17: Post Loss Blues

17 July 2019
Nobody likes to lose.

Loss has a way of taking a toll on the bravest of hearts. It slips in quietly and slowly overwhelms you. Majority of the Housemates experienced the pain of losing out on 1.5 million Naira and a 4-day all-expense paid VVIP trip to Dubai and it did take a toll on them. A couple were able to brush it off while some sulked. 

Get Over It

Omashola and Seyi took turns consoling Thelma after getting disqualified from the Pepsi ‘Know Da Lyrics’ Challenge. Feeling down on her luck after dropping out in the second phase of the challenge, Thelma kept to herself sulking until the duo of Omashola and Seyi put in the extra effort to lift her mood. Omashola, who had also lost out, reminded her it was all for fun and nothing to be sad over. Resolved to make her feel better, he dragged her off her feet and urged her to go get the meal made by Mercy that all the Housemates kept raving about.

Losers Lounge

Frodd, Gedoni, Omashola and Thelma, obviously still hurt from losing out on the challenge hurdled in the garden as they tried to distract themselves from the fact that a choice prize just slipped out of their hands. Mercy was spotted not too far off wrapped in the arms of her man. She didn't win the prize, but at least, she has a man to take away the blues.

Consoling the Finalists

Jeff, Diane and Nelson needed all the consoling they could get especially after coming so close to the prize. The trio made it to the final round alongside Seyi, Jackye after an intense battle. The trio showed their lyrical prowess as they sang their way to the final spot only to lose out for not singing their lines correctly. Housemates gathered around them to cheer them up.

One Winner

In the battle for 1.5 Million, a trip to and a 4-day all-expense paid VVIP trip to Dubai, there can only be one winner and Jackye was that winner. If there's a Housemate who needed consoling, it was Seyi. Losing out on HoH, getting Nominated for Eviction and finally losing to Jackye, it certainly hasn't been his week.
