Day 57 – 18 Sept: Ceec, Ilebaye and Mercy Eke join Cross in the All Stars finale – BBNaija

#BBNaija Housemates

It's a 'Cross and the girls' kind of finale so far as black envelope immunity claimant Ceec, head of house Ilebaye and Mercy Eke snatched the highly coveted spots. Mercy Eke earned her seat after nominations as she received only one nomination from Soma and that was not enough to place her on the chopping block.

After over two hours of a grueling HoH challenge, Pere then Angel gave up on the endurance task and Ilebaye took the HoH title all the way to the finale, picking all the girls:  Angel, Ceec, Mercy Eke and Venita as her BFFs to enjoy the comfort of the HoH mezzanine.

Meanwhile, Angel, Adekunle, Pere, Soma and Venita all got two or more nominations after each of the nine All Stars were challenged to put up two housemates for possible eviction and this time around, state their reasons why. Their reasons ranged from emotional to logical and betrayal or suspicions of it thereof and how strong their contenders appear to be, proved to be quite common.

The final black envelope game also took a different twist as it was held in the arena and the housemates had to rummage through heaps of clothes and other paraphernalia to find a total of five black envelopes. Adekunle, Angel, Ceec, Pere and Soma all managed to find the black envelopes but Ceec was the luckiest of them all.
