Housemates gathered in the living room to await Biggie’s instructions, unaware that the Nominations were a trick, a wild one maybe, but still a trick. Biggie called on a representative from each pair into the Diary Room for them to decide in forty-five seconds who should leave the House - not one, but two pairs should be Nominated for possible Eviction.
The lynching behind closed doors
Representing Prito (Princess and Bitto), Bitto was the first to be called and shoot at Bamteddy (Bambam and Teddy A) and K_Square (Khloe and K.Brule). Loto (Lolu and Anto) were next in the Diary Room, with Anto naming Angelifu (Angel and Ifu Ennada) and K_Square without a blink, even though Ifu Ennada liked her pretty much. Speaking on behalf of Van-Dee (Vandora and Dee-One), Vandora named Angelifu and dropped Loto upon hearing Biggie’s repeated instructions.
Then Ahneeka sashayed her way into the bamboo chair, deeply exhaling, before uttering Mina (Miracle and Nina) and Prito all the while tapping her fingers onto the chair’s edge. Strolling towards the Diary Room, Khloe on behalf of K_Square jumped at the occasion to vote Mina and Prito out as the dynamics between the three pairs are not particularly vibrant given Khloe’s dictatorial tendencies.
When Leolex (Leo and Alex) turn came, Leo was biting his lower lips, nervously looking down before softly voicing Angelifu and Prito, as if he was betraying fellow Housemates. Then Biggie called Bamteddy, and Teddy A made his way to the room to declare K_Square and Mina personae non gratae. Who knew Teddy A had an axe to grind against Mina in particular?
Biggie’s legendary sense of humour had Miracle follow in the Diary Room, on the heels of Teddy A to put forward K_Square and Angelifu. As for Angelifu, it was clear from Ifu Ennada’s awkward look that she was reluctant to drop the names of K_Square and Leolex. It is Head of House Tobi who closed this first Nomination session by promptly suggesting Big Brother let go of Prito and Loto.
Reversal of fortune
At the conclusion of the Nominations, Biggie named all the pairs up for Eviction. Upon hearing his name, K.Brule opened his eyes widely and uttered a swear word. He was flabbergasted. The Mina pair looked down, while Britto slid into his chair and blew a kiss with his left hand to his Housemates.
Then Big Brother called upon the reappointed Head of House Tobi to use his veto to save and replace one of the pairs up for Eviction or risk forfeiting his immunity. In less than twenty seconds, and in the name of their budding bromance, Tobi chose to save Mina over Bamteddy. Who said fake Nominations could not be machiavelic?
