Mjuneiro aka Inkabi yase Atlanta McJunior was announced as the winner of Big Brother Mzansi season 4, so let's let you in on the scoop on how he did it. McJunior entered the house as a reserved housemate who turned out to be the underdog of the season.

Despite facing the challenges of living in Biggie's house, McJunior's genuine personality and strategic gameplay ultimately won him the viewers' hearts, leading to his victory.

Now let's check out how McJunior's journey unfolded in the house and how his unique personality contributed to his gameplay.

McJunior the recluse

In the first week of the season, the housemates realised that McJunior was quite the loner and only related with them whenever it was necessary. One of the first times the spotlight shone on him was at the first live eviction show, where he spoke about PapaGhost's inability to let other people's opinions thrive while the house prepared for its first wager presentation.

One housemate who was able to get him out of his shell was Disruptor Fahima, who often went to him and quizzed him about his lack of connection with her. McJunior stated that he was not interested in keeping friends from the season when he exits the game, one of the reasons why he did not connect on an emotional level with any of his fellow housemates.

Friend to the Disruptors

Despite his initial reluctance to form emotional connections, McJunior found himself forming a genuine bond with Disruptor Fahima due to her persistence. Additionally, he also developed a sense of camaraderie with fellow Disruptors Neo and Taki as they navigated the challenges of the house together.

McJunior's friendship with Fahima, however, leaned a bit towards the side of a situationship with a few sexual teases from Fahima. Despite making it clear that he had a girlfriend outside the house, McJunior would go on to have another young fling with Liema and Mpumi.

Despite his initial reservations, McJunior was able to maintain healthy relationships with most of his housemates and immerse himself in activities in the house. His ability to balance his boundaries while still engaging with other housemates made it possible for him to show different facets of his personality.

The mosha master

Not one to purposely create chaos, McJunior proved that he could stand the heat in the kitchen by standing up to occasions that threatened his personality in the house. He had a long-standing beef with PapaGhost, which he mentioned in his final diary session that he is not interested in squashing outside the house. The two had their first clash after McJunior called PapaGhost out on the first live show while confirming one of Lawrence Maleka's questions.

Their bickering and fights happened over wager preparations and house duties but came to an abrupt end a few weeks before the end of the season. The two eventually found a way to coexist peacefully, realising that their differences were not worth the ongoing conflict. Despite their rocky start, they managed to put aside their differences and focus on the bigger picture of winning the competition.

The games master

McJunior was the first housemate to win the Head of House title back-to-back and also triumphed in tasks and the Friday night arena games. McJunior won his first Head of House title in week 3 and his second in week 4. His second week as Head of House also saw him join the 5K club as he won his Friday night arena games of that week. McJunior will go on to win two more Friday arena games to tie with Willy as the housemate with the most arena games won.
