Day 70 – 1 Oct: Bittersweet preparations for finale live show – BBNaija

01 October 2023
The tension in the All Stars house is so thick you can almost touch it.

It's the All Stars' last day in the Big Brother Naija house and without a doubt, the preparation for tonight is in top form, as they can't wait to know who gets crowned the winner of this season. These final moments are crucial, and as they prepare, the All Stars are sharing heartfelt conversations and reflections.

Percy's chat

Mercy Eke and Pere shared an intimate conversation that revealed their genuine affection for each other. Mercy expressed her desire to maintain the strong bond they have formed in the house once they return to the outside world. Mercy Eke confessed that she will miss Pere and hopes they will continue to play together like they had during their time in the house. She highlighted the importance of preserving the unique connection they have built in the Big Brother Naija All Stars house, and hopes it is free from the influence of the outside world.

Ceec's dream of victory

Ceec engaged in a conversation with Pere about the impending finale. She revealed her excitement and anticipation, stating that if she emerged as the winner, she would be so overwhelmed that she might faint. The significance of 120 million Naira as the grand prize was not lost on her or on any of the other finalists either.

Cross and Pere's discussion

Cross and Pere delved into a discussion about Mercy Eke and the authenticity of her feelings for Pere. Cross expressed his concerns, wanting to ensure that Pere's heart wasn't at risk of getting broken once they returned to the real world. He praised Mercy's playful yet intelligent nature and the need to understand her true intentions. The two housemates contemplated the possibility of Mercy playing games with Pere's emotions, with Pere saying that he wouldn't forgive himself if Mercy was toying with his heart. Cross concluded by saying, "Let's hope and see how it goes."

Salon banter

Today also signifies the end of the housemates' glam journey in the Lush Salon and as they enjoyed the experience, they had various conversations. From Ceec's and Ilebaye's gist about preparing for life outside the house, to relationship banter and last night's surprise Independence party thrown for them by Biggie, the salon echoed with laughter and happiness as differences were set aside to enjoy these final moments.

Amidst the events happening in the house, tension flared briefly when Cross assigned Ilebaye the task of washing the dishes. Ilebaye refused, prompting Adekunle to step in and volunteer for the task. Cross expressed his frustration to Mercy, believing that Ilebaye would regret her actions. Still, Mercy advised him to let it go, as their time in the house was drawing to a close.

After their final salon visit, the housemates got down to the business of packing their belongings, in preparation for their exit.

With the clock ticking down to the grand finale tonight, the All Stars house remains a hub of excitement, anticipation, and reflection. As they prepare to leave the house, the housemates are acutely aware that the world outside will bring new challenges and opportunities. Only time will tell which of them will emerge as the ultimate All Star and claim the coveted 120 million Naira prize. Tick Tock!
