Live Show 5: Zino and B.U. Evicted! – BBMzansi

20 February 2022
The Sunday Live Eviction Show has come and gone, and so have Zino and B.U. After the show, there was also a serious change to the rules, which will change the game in a fundamental way.

When the show started, seven Housemates would have been more tense than the others. B.U., Libo, Nale, Thato, Venus, Vyno and Zino started the day with Nominations hanging over their heads, and they knew that at least one of them would be Evicted.

Lawrence wasted no time in getting to the first Eviction, naming Zino as the first Housemate to have to walk out of the door for the night. The disappointment was clear on his face, and the other Housemates were shocked: they’ve made no bones about the fact that they see him as a little brother, and his positive attitude was much appreciated in the House. The only reason that Zino was on the list at all is because Gash1 used his power as Head of House to save Norman and replace him with Zino.

During his exit interview with Lawrence, Zino remained positive. “It’s been a privilege,” he said, referring to his time in the Big Brother Mzansi House. He also said that he would miss all of the Housemates. Then Lawrence started asking a hypothetical question. “You walk into the House,” he said, “single – no relationship outside the House – which Housemate…”

“Venus!” Zino interrupted, saving Lawrence a bit of time. Clearly, he had thought about this hypothetical situation before. After that, it was time to bid Zino farewell, which they did with the whole studio crew singing Happy Birthday To You as he left the stage.

Lawrence put Nale and Libo out of their misery early in the night, which might have been nice for them, but would only have succeeded in dialling up the tension for the remaining  Nominees. Eventually, though, Lawrence returned to the House, telling each of the Housemates in turn that they were safe. He finished with B.U. but did not tell him he was safe. Instead, he told him that he had been Evicted, and would need to leave the House. B.U. was clearly surprised, and Venus was clearly upset.

He soon shook it off, however, and was in good spirits during his exit interview with Lawrence. He said his only regret was that he hadn’t cooked enough vegan meals for his fellow Housemates, meaning that he hadn’t done enough to show them the benefits of the lifestyle.

After the double Eviction, the House was shook, but Biggie had another twist to shake it up even further: until further notice, the Housemates are allowed to engage in “Nominations conspiracy” – discussing who they will Nominate and teaming up. This can only happen in a designated area, and only at certain times. Things are about to get interesting.
