While the BBNaija All Stars get an extra week in the house, Biggie has a few unsuspecting tricks up his sleeves.

There’s a massive grand prize of 120 Million Naira at stake, so it's only fitting that Big Brother adds a new dimension to the game. Before announcing that there will be no evictions at tonight's live show, Big Brother Naija All Stars host Ebuka introduced fans to an array of additions, which pardon me please and the BB Naija jury over and above the Black envelope challenge, which we saw play out in the house on Monday, rewarding Mercy Eke with the first immunity card of the season.

Black envelope challenge

The challenge requires the housemates to search around the house for a physical black envelope within a specified time. As a reward, the housemate that finds the envelope may get immunity from eviction on that week.

Introducing Pardon me please

Following Nigerian music sensation Odumodu Blvck's electrifying performance, Ebuka also spoke about the new twist to nominations, "Pardon me, please," which will take place after the black envelope challenge. Biggie will allow the All Stars to sell themselves to each other for a chance to be pardoned from possible evictions. Then, in the diary room they will each get to nominate one housemate for immunity.

Ex- housemates set to return as members of the jury

If you thought the house was star-studded, get ready to see even more past Big Brother Naija housemates starting next week! At every live eviction show, there will be a jury comprising four former housemates. Ebuka will task them with deliberating, voting and choosing one or two of the bottom two or three housemates, who will then be evicted.

The battle of the sexes continues

After crossing into the house, Ebuka continued "the great debate"; Cross rallied for the men while Mercy Eke expressed that this season is for the women. Before drawing the curtains, Ebuka advised the housemates to focus on being gamers and keep their eyes on the grand prize.
