The All Stars got quite rowdy as they attempted to understand the stakes that had been set before the wager. The fact that housemates with higher stakes had to split their earnings equally with those with lower stakes did not sit well with them. Cross argued that he placed a higher bet because he was unable to consume much of what his fellow housemates were eating and wanted the opportunity to eat on his own. Angel also complained about the requirement that all costs be distributed equally. Housemates who staked lower argued against individual shopping and made sure Biggie's rule about collective shopping was carried out.
This new development could mean low stakes might be the order of the day going forward, as housemates may now prioritise collective shopping and equal distribution of costs. It remains to be seen how this change will affect the dynamics within the house and whether it will lead to a more harmonious living arrangement.
What could the housemates be saving their coins for? No one is sure yet, but in the history of BBNaija, coins have played a big role in the survival of housemates who end up making legendary moves in Biggie's house. For example, previous seasons have seen housemates use their coins to buy immunity from eviction or to gain advantages in tasks and challenges. The strategic use of coins has often determined the fate of contestants, eventually influencing the overall outcome of the show. Therefore, it is likely that the housemates are aware of the potential power their saved coins could hold and may be planning to use them strategically in the future.
