Day 60: Their Emotionally Draining Moments

29 August 2019
Part of the human condition involves dealing with emotionally challenging moments but in the Pepper Dem House, some are more difficult to deal with than others.

From losing Nomination Challenges to earning Strikes, the Housemates revealed to Biggie what they found emotionally draining in the Big Brother House.

The Relationship Trials

We found it interesting hearing both Ike and Mercy confessed to Biggie that they find their relationship with each other challenging. Well, maybe not in the way you imagine. Although the couple spent the evening joking with each other under the duvet, they did not shy away from telling Biggie the different ways their relationship has drained them. Weird how they both had the same challenges and it didn't seem like they planned their answers. If great minds think alike, what do they say about challenged minds?

While Mercy said her Task sessions with Ike has been emotionally challenging, Ike admitted that forming a relationship in the House has been draining for him. In addition, having to live in the same House with multiple personalities seems to be taking a toll on him but he’s found a way to manage such situations.

There’s no relationship without some flames and we reckon the Icy pair do not shy away from revealing theirs.

The Strike Repentant

 Like a prodigal child, Tacha opened up her Diary session with Biggie by asking for his forgiveness. Her second awarded Strike in the House opened up an emotional side of Tacha which she displayed as she fell on her knees and pleaded constantly. Big Brother was quick to get her off her feet as he told her he had forgiven her and it would be nice to see things evolve with her in the House.

With the heart of a repentant, Tacha promised to turn a new leaf and never disregard Biggie’s rules to avoid her dreams of staying till day ninety-nine cut short. Evidently, getting her second Strike was an emotionally draining moment for her in the House and she didn’t hide how it made her feel in her Diary Room revelations to Biggie. What should we expect from the resident Port-Harcourt queen? We’ll find out.

Frodd’s Warriors

It has almost been a norm seeing Frodd exchange verbal insults with some Pepper Dem Gang members; either for food or well, for more food. What we did not know was that the Housemates he exchanged words with felt guilty for letting him take the better side of them. With this, we can’t help but wonder if they found their fight sessions with Frodd emotionally draining because of how guilty they felt or because Frodd has now become a resident fighter that shouldn’t be challenged, Whatever the case may be, eating is a common hobby the Housemates share and we don’t see the food fights ending soon. Or do you?

One thing Elozonam and Seyi agreed to after their Diary confessions is that the fights taught them a lot about staying in control even when upset. All thanks to teacher Frodd, lessons have been learnt.

The Lover Boy

We never thought we would use the words “lover boy” for Omashola considering the fact that he’s pretty much the only single Pepper Dem Gang member, both inside and outside the House. However, hearing him admit to Biggie that every time he’s had to think about his ex has been emotionally wrecking for him, revealed a lot. One word, could Omashola still be in love?

This subject matter has brought the resident Warri lord in tears and tonight wasn’t any different. As he opened up to Biggie about the incident that led to losing his ex, he did not fail to admit that he hopes she’s waiting for him outside. We hope so too, Omashola.

In the same light, Seyi also revealed to Biggie that missing his ex is one of his emotionally draining moments in the House. We see you, lover boy.

The Challenge Tears

They might not have cried during the Diary revelations but hearing them tell Biggie about how bad they felt about certain Nomination Challenges in the House made us realize how bad it hurt them.

Interestingly, this led to tears from both Housemates during the incident.

Esther told Biggie about how Cruisetopia’s Wager loss on her birthday dealt with her emotionally, while Sir Dee explained his sadness about losing the Nomination Challenge for The Icons.

Well, time to man up guys, new teams are on-board and it’s winning season!

One word for the Housemates? Stay positive and learn from the difficult times in Biggie’s House. In the meantime, we hope they put these challenging moments behind them and enjoy the Pepper Dem ride.
