Day 17: Things the cameras don’t see – BBMzansi

09 February 2022
Being in the House is a dream come true for many, but it also has its challenges.
People sitting and talking

The audition process and the excitement over entering the House seems to be the thing we all look forward to, and of course, seeing the Housemates in action. To all the people asking about Shower Hour, we see you.

There are a lot of things that we don’t get to see and they are usually things that happen in the mind and the hearts of the Housemates. These are people who had lived outside the House and they have left behind their jobs, loved ones, and everything that is familiar to them. They must then come into a House with strangers and navigate themselves and their feelings in the unknown. 

There are however some outlets that Biggie has provided: 

The Diary Sessions 

This is where the Housemates get to talk about everything that is in their minds and share whatever that may be bothering them with Biggie. Everything they talk about here is confidential. It’s a safe space and they are also able to ask for the things that they need. 

The Head of House bedroom

The Housemates get to enjoy a luxurious room in the House with a person of their choice. This encourages privacy and also alleviates the anxiety of being with everyone even when you don’t have the capacity for it. 

The Games Nights 

This is an opportunity for the Housemates to let loose and to have fun. The perks of winning these are the Storeroom being opened and the Housemates having a good time. 

The Saturday Night Parties 

These are hosted in collaboration with Channel O and usually feature two DJs. The Housemates dress up, dweb a lash, get sauced, and dance their blues away. 

Let’s remember to be kind even with our comments on social media.
