The House has definitely gotten smaller, but make no mistake, it’s still as heated as it once was when it was packed full. This week made it clear that Shine Ya Eye House will always be what it is known for irrespective of the number of Housemates in it. From drama to fights, sensual moments to Tasks, this week was packed with everything.
Wielding the Ultimate Veto Power
This week, Emmanuel got to wield the greatest power of all – the Ultimate Veto Power! After a keenly contested game that saw him tie with Cross and eventually edging him out, Emmanuel became the Ultimate VPH. With his new power, Emmanuel received Immunity from Nominations and sealed his spot in the final week. He also appointed the new HoH, Liquorose and Deputy, Cross. Both also had Immunity and spots in the Final week.

Ultimate prank & prankster
A major highlight of this week is the third biggest prank of the Season. Big Brother tasked Nini to disappear from the house for 24 hours by making her way to another section of the House called the White Room. It was a prank that had the Housemates coming up with weird conspiracy theories and looking for her in the most unusual places in the House. What really got the internet buzzing was the impact this prank had on Saga. We were all taken by surprise when he began to cry and attempted to force open the diary room in search of his 'friend' who was missing; but then again, were we really that surprised? Nini did make her return to the House and from the looks of things, Saga isn’t letting her out of his sight again.

The Diary Room sessions
The geng did, of course, take the time during the week to talk to Biggie about life so far in the House. They shared their thoughts on the possibility of making it to the Final week. Some appeared to be optimistic while others were uncertain, but one thing they all shared was a spirit of gratitude. They were really glad and thankful they made it this far on the Show. As a final touch, Biggie gave them the opportunity to send a message to their loved ones, and it was beautiful to see them reach out to their loved ones they hadn't seen in months.

The Tasks came in as usual, and there were a lot of big winners in the House. Angel and Emmanuel won N750,000 in the Munch It Task, Cross and Queen won N500,000, and Liquorose won N250,000. The Hawaii Task ended with 1 Million Naira being won by Emmanuel, Queen, and Saga, 750 000 Naira being won by Liquorose, Whitemoney, and Nini, and 500 000 Naira going to Angel, Cross, and Pere. In addition to becoming Lipton Ice Tea brand ambassadors, Saga, Angel, and Whitemoney took home N2.5 million, N1.5 million, and N1 million Naira respectively in the "Chop Beta Life" task.
Congratulations to all the Housemates on their winning streak.

Biggie was quite generous with the geng this week. After what the Housemates would consider a demanding week, Biggie treated them to a grand garden feast. They sat on the laid out table like one big family, chewing away at the tantalising components that made up their buffet-style gift. Plantains, beans, corn, pork, rice, juice, pepper soup, ice cream, spaghetti and sauce were among some of the delicacies that made up the buffet.

Friday Night Game
After racing against time in a “Journey to Financial Freedom”, Queen emerged as the winner of the Friday Night Task and smiles to the bank with One Million Naira. This Task was courtesy of PiggyVest.
Jacuzzi and Party
What better way to end the week than a thrilling jacuzzi party followed by a spectacular neon Saturday Night Party. The geng sure did have their fun and to think for a minute that a fight that started between Angel and Liqourose/Pere was going to mar it. Oh well, we guess they know how to fight and also how to party harder.

Safe to say no matter the outcome of tonight’s Live Eviction Show, the Shine Ya Eye Housemates had a swell time this week and they made memories and money to last them for quite some time.
