When Dotun won the Head of House title on Monday, he chose Daniella as his deputy and as such, was to share the HoH bedroom with her. Dotun's win came after a discussion he had with Doyin where they both disclosed who they would choose as deputy HoH if they won.
Since moving into the Head of House bedroom on Day 37, the dynamic between Daniella and Dotun took a more serious turn as the pair had time and privacy to engage in deeper conversations. On Tuesday morning, Day 38, Dotun showed Daniella his vulnerable side by sharing how he longed to spend more time with his late cousins. The conversation revealed more intimate details of Dotun that he hadn't shared with anyone in the House. Perhaps, he feels a lot more comfortable with Daniella and trusts her enough to be his confidant.
During that same night, things took a more unsavoury turn between Dotun and Daniella as they had a disagreement. This spurred Dotun's resolve which he shared with Daniella by saying, "I really want to learn how to break down your barriers." Dotun insisted that he wouldn't try and convince Daniella to do anything she found challenging.
Dotun and Daniella then joined the rest of the Housemates for a late dinner where she was heard telling Dotun that she felt like her attachment to him wasn't good. "I can't lie, I do feel alone, I really do feel very lonely," said Daniella. "I can't see myself not being with you, because it's hard," she added. A surprise Dotun retorted that "I thought you and Doyin were close because she told me that she doesn't see us on the outside." Daniella went on to explain her conversation with Doyin to Dotun and admitted that she was conflicted over her standing situation with Khalid.
Things got cosier between Dotun and Diana on Day 38 when Dotun playfully hugged Daniella from behind in the Garden while complimenting her on how good she smelled. Later that afternoon, the pair retired to the HoH bedroom for a siesta that Dotun interrupted by waking Daniella up with a kiss so they could start working on the Wager Task.
Biggie may have also helped things along between Daniella and Dotun during the morning hours of Day 39 when he gave Dotun some time to watch a movie with her. Dotun took the opportunity to show Daniella his affectionate side as he fed her with the treats that Big Brother had provided.
Today on Day 40, Daniella and Dotun spent the better part of the morning in the HoH bedroom while the Housemates busied themselves with making breakfast. It's clear that the pair thoroughly enjoy each other's company.
Will they take things a step further and get into a ship in the House?
