The Lockdown Housemates won their first Wager Task of the Season after back to back loss. The Housemates secured the win after hitching a ride on the DeLorean time machine and taking a trip back in time to deliver the performance of their lives. The 80s romantic musical was the theme of their much-anticipated Wager Task performance and it was a sight to behold.

Third time is the charm

After losing their first two Wager Tasks, Mother Luck smiled on the Lockdown Housemates and gave them their much-deserved win. After failing the Circus Task, the Housemates had their weekly allowance slashed and making food purchase over the weekend was a traumatic experience as they could only purchase little and thereby having their food ration grossly reduced. This win means they get to go all out this weekend and have a ball buying as much as they want with a doubled allowance.

Get a load of these outfits.

In line with the 80’s theme, the Housemates came out decked in the most fashionable retro attires to give off that ‘Old school’ vibe. From their wigs to their boot cut pants, the Housemates kept it real groovy.

The performance

The performance opened with a rendition of Fela Kuti’s popular hit 'Open and Close' with Neo taking the lead and introducing us to the romantic musical. A romantic play that focused on the complexities of love was infused with some of the 80’s romantic hits with a blend of popular hits from the present day. Neo played the protagonist while Erica was his love interest. Tochi and Dorathy played Erica’s parents reluctant to let Neo pursue a relationship with their daughter. They favoured another which Erica vehemently rejected. The play was filled with twist and turns and finally reinforcing the statement that 'Love Wins'.

Biggie’s take

It was music to their ears when Biggie announced that he was pleased with the performance. He was particularly pleased with Prince who he felt deserved an award and also Erica who delivered a stellar performance. Biggie believed the Housemates interpreted the play well, but winning isn’t always the main goal but how well the Housemates conduct themselves in the House.

The deviant ones.

Biggie wasn’t too pleased with Tolanibaj, Vee and Tochi who he accused of having developed the habit of speaking in their native languages thereby infringing on the House rules. “Anytime you speak any other language apart from English or Pidgin, you must interpret it immediately. Failure to do so is an infringement on the House rules,” he said. Although he said it was a thing of pride to represent one’s ethnicity, he reminded them that they do not all share the same ethnic background. Kaisha and Brighto were not left out of the reproach. Both Housemates once overslept and missed out on the workout session and ended up incurring fines.

The win

The Housemates had their previous BBNaira balance of 1,090 BB Naira doubled to 2,180 BB Naira giving them more earning power to shop till they drop this weekend. This is their first major win and hopefully, this would herald more victories for the Housemates.
