Day 18: The truth is in the diary

06 August 2020
The Housemates always let the juice out in the diary room, last week we lost 2 Housemates, has this changed the mood?
The truth is in the Diary

Last Sunday we said goodbye to two Housemates, Ka3na and Lilo and this left some of the Housemates questioning whether they had gotten too comfortable in the House and forgotten that this is a Game. Today, when Biggie checked in, we had the expected tears and tea spilling about the issues we have all seen. Biggie had a very important question, however: How have the House dynamics changed in the House since the Eviction?

Many Housemates report that the dynamics are better now, probably referring to the lack of dramatics that Ka3na provided, a bit unfair however considering that there has been serious drama between Vee, Tolanibaj and Wathoni all week. Moving on.

Housemates miss Lilo, but Eric is finally coming out of his shell

Many Housemates alluded to the fact that they miss Lilo and her energy and calm. In particular, Tochi and Vee made mention that her nature is missing from the house. On the up-side, Housemates can feel that Eric is coming out of his shell and interacting with more people now. Again, Vee made reference to Eric's personality shining through and how he is such a great. person. We will wait to see how people vote and see how you agree at home.

Ozo is a great HoH

The Housemates have unanimously agreed that Ozo is a successful Head of House. Neo spoke at length about how upbeat the energy in the House is under the supervision of Ozo and Dora. For all her tears, even Lucy brightened up when she spoke about Ozo and Dora. She says she was happy that Ozo chose Dora as Deputy Head of House and even attributes her own actions as HoH as setting a high benchmark for the pair to achieve. Brighto and Dora made mention to how Ozo raised his voice with Prince which shocked everyone, and they both respect him for apologizing to Prince. 

A few Housemates are fighting

So. How exactly has the dynamic changed? Neo spoke passionately about withdrawal in his groups during Team activities this week. He mentions Wathoni by name, saying that she has become withdrawn due to the fact that there were members (who he does not mention by name) in the group who she has not been getting along with. In the same vein, Vee made reference to the fight about the bed, blaming the whole controversy on Wathoni for not understanding. Interestingly enough, Tolanibaj did not mention the bed incident, but she did mention that she does not understand Wathoni who blows hot and cold. This diary session was quite out of character for Tolanibaj who tells Big Brother everything, is she holding back? Trikytee also mentioned the fighting and told Biggie that it is making the vibe in the House a bit weird, thanking god that today was peaceful at least. 

There are no new alliances in the House

Many of the Housemates say they do not see any new alliances in the House. Though the Housemates are feeling the heat of the evictions, they do not seem to have any new alliances, but rather that the old alliances are getting weaker according to Vee.

Love triangles and squares

So many of the girls made mention to the love dynamic in the House which makes things awkward and difficult for the Housemates. Vee mentioned the love square above, Tolanibaj did not mention herself in that. Lucy also made mention to the lovers in the House saying that Housemates are now less lovey-dovey and getting their heads into the game, saying she did not come with a strategy, but those who did are having to reassess their strategies.

Group Tasks brought Housemates together and then apart

When asked by Biggie how the House was this week, the Houesmates had many different responses. There are two general feelings, one is very happy an the other is disappointed. 

It seems that Housemates were mostly brought together by the process of the teamwork, with the exception of Lucy and Wothoni who were withdrawn. The aftermath of the winning and loving, however, left many Housemates knowing they can do better. and wondering how they can do that in the future. Brighto did not mention names, but he told biggie that he could see the sadness in his fellow Housemates eyes, but he is focusing on his happiness. he winners of the Dulux Task ware naturally very happy as they won cash prizes and can 

Did the Evictions change the dynamic?

Everyone says that people are more serious now. Erica, for instance, made reference to Neo's confidence being shaken by the references. She says she is making the most of every day and having fun every day. We can definitely see that. Neo, on the other hand, told Biggie that Housemates are on their toes and on their best behaviour, making amends as soon as they mistreat anyone and trying to be on their best behaviour at all times to avoid being voted out by each other. 

It is clear that the evictions shook things up in Biggies House. We look forward to tonight where the Housemates work on their collective task and show Biggie what they've got.
