Following the altercation between Beauty and Ilebaye last night, Big Brother has come down hard on the Level 2 Housemates for flouting the Rules of the Game.
After the Live Show, which saw the introduction of Modella into Level 2 and Deji into Level 1, Big Brother gathered the Housemates in the lounge to address the insolence.
Big Brother started off by showing the Housemates footage of the disagreement between Beauty and Illebaye before addressing them.
It seems to Big Brother that you may have forgotten your reasons for being in the House. For those who may have had a lapse in memory countless Nigerians young and old had the desire to make it into the House and thousands had the courage to apply in hopes that their gamble would pay off. In the end, only 24 were selected. Each of you were selected because of a unique quality that stood high above the thousands that applied.
A quality that makes you special. Although Big Brother knows the unique quality that each of you possess, you can however be assured that the traits that made you stand out will never be good enough to give you a pass and make it okay to disrespect Big Brother and the House Rules that everyone here is expected to abide by. Housemates, let’s get over some of these rules.
Article 18 page 18 of the Rule Book talks about Prohibited Behaviour in detail.
The Big Brother game is one that encourages expression and that violence will never be tolerated. Big Brother quoted that any Housemate who becomes physically violent will be removed immediately. Violence can refer to self-inflicted violence or violence towards another. Other forms of violence include provocation, goading , bullying and victimisation and these may be punished by Big Brother in anyway Big Brother chooses.
Ilebaye and Beauty were asked to stand. "During your disagreement, you both disregarded the above by overstepping each other's boundaries. In Big Brother’s House there are non-negotiation rules and flouting these are non-negotiable hence the Rule Book was made available to you.
Big Brother said their actions from the previous night were a blatant violation of the rules.
Beauty took it a step further when she physically charged at Illebaye and proceeded to physically remove items on her body in what could be seen as a violent manner.
"Illebaye, your part is to understand that when people set boundaries, these must be respected to avoid situations getting out of control therefore you need to acknowledge your role in this situation". Big Brother issued a warning to Illebaye.
Big Brother then turned to Beauty. "In spite of being heated, approaching another Housemate with the intention of causing physical discomfort or even harm will never be tolerated. For your behavior, Big Brother thereby issues you a Strike. Two more Strikes and you will be Disqualified.
“I understand 100 percent” and Big Brother told the rest of the Housemates that they too were not off the hook. “Dragging your feet when called will no longer be tolerated. When Big Brother calls, you must respond immediately,” Biggie charged.
