It's a week of wins for the All Stars ladies; following tonight's head of house games which resembled the hunger games and the conspiring among the genders, things are looking up for the female housemates this week.

Mercy Eke becomes the first female Hoh

Tonight's game was a simple seesaw challenge; Housemates had to pour sand into their opponents' boxes, causing them to tip; The housemate whose seesaw tipped last was crowned the winner. Adekunle, Doyin, Neoenergy, Pere, Mercy Eke and Soma made it past the first round. However Pere lost and Adekunle and Soma were disqualified. Neoenergy opted to drop out following an altercation with Adekunle during the game leaving Mercy Eke and Doyin as the last two standing.

After tipping Doyin's seesaw, Biggie announced Mercy Eke as the winner. She gets immunity for the week and shares the head of house floor with her four selected BFFs: Angel, Doyin, Frodd and Whitemoney.

Doyin gets pardoned 

In a close competition with Neoenergy, Doyin won the hearts of her alliances and was granted immunity from this week's eviction. As planned, most housemates stuck to who they intended to pardon. However, Neoenergy's choice to save Ilebaye was the most shocking knowing his strong alliance with Tolanibaj. There had been a clear agreement among some of the guys, that Tolanibaj deserved to be pardoned, but once they were in the dock, they had other plans.
