It was a night of action for the Big Brother Housemates as they all assembled for another night of Betway Arena Games. Since Biggie is still on a break the Housemates had to read the instructions for the games before playing.

The format was an obstacle course with five events which had to be completed in less than two minutes. The Housemate who completed the whole course in the shortest amount of time would be the winner. The five obstacles the Housemates had to complete were:

1.Basketball hoop: The Housemates had to shooti a ball through the hoop to progress.

2. Hula hustle: The Housemates needed to move one of the two hula hoops forward on to the place they would step in order to progress.

It was a very brisk start for Praise who obliterated the course as the first competitor. His effort showed that the Betway Arena Games weren't going to be an easy walk to victory for anyone tonight. Some obsticales were easier than others, but the final obstacle of matching cones to balls got the better of Nengi, Tolanibaj, Lucy, and Erica and they ran out of time while trying to complete it.

The Housemates who made the short work of the course were Brighto, Wathoni, Trikytee, Vee, Kiddwaya, and Laycon who all managed to finish. Brighto, Laycon, and Prince all recorded rounds that left them with more than 40 seconds on the clock, but their excellent efforts were still not enough. 

Praise’s blistering start to the game sealed him an all-important win in the Arena and handed him bragging rights for the next seven days.
