Day 15: Ozo For The Win
Another week and another Head of House Game. This time Ozo won and elected to have Dorathy as his Deputy.
Following the double Eviction this past Sunday, the Housemates have gained a greater respect for the importance of claiming the Head of House and being chosen as Deputy. This realisation was highlighted by the added effort they showed when trying to clinch the coveted position.
The games so far have given every Housemate equal opportunity to win, and tonight was another great example of that. The game was similar to previous ones as it was a board game with the Housemate who progresses the farthest in One Minute and ten seconds of play being crowned the Head of House. To start the Housemates have to roll a 6, and once they got going the board was littered with stumbling blocks and obstacles depending on where they land. The obstacles ranged from simple things like a ring toss to difficult ones like scoring a ball in a hoop.
It seemed that the Head of House game was destined to go to Nengi who managed to score a very respectable 23. Tochi was close to eclipsing her after getting a 24, but since he didn’t manage to move his token on the board before the time ran out, his score stayed a paltry 15.
The Betway Challenge wasn’t without its fair share of drama with Laycon and Trikytee both scoring zero. Laycon got zero due to a hamstring injury causing him to not be able to play, while Trikytee learned that he can’t trick Biggie and was disqualified for his cheating.
The Housemate who best mastered the game was Ozo as he managed to finish the game in the allotted time and give anyone who was following him massive feat to overcome. After all the other Housemates had been given a chance to play, nobody could come close to his amazing effort which led Biggie to crown him the winner.
The only thing more difficult than the actual Challenge for Ozo was choosing who he would have as his Deputy and when Biggie asked him about it, the agony was written all over his face. During his Diary Room Session with Biggie, he unsurprisingly chose Dorathy as his Deputy, which she accepted with all her ‘full chest.’
Now let us see how he makes the most of his time in the Head of House because like all things in life, this honour too shall come to pass.
Day 15: We Vote how we Vote
The day after the Housemates played a part in Voting, they tell us why they made their decisions.
As we all expected, the double-whammy from last night left our housemates a little shook, so today when Biggie called the Housemates into the Diary Room we knew to expect a mixed bag of personalities.
Lucy started off our diary session today admitting that she missed Ka3na a lot. She admitted that she voted for Lilo and Eric, because she could not vote for Praise and Ka3na. After she cried because she feels lonely, Biggie encouraged her to develop new skills that will allow her to adapt, as a way of changing herself, rather than changing everyone else.
A very suave and grateful Prince voted for Lilo and Eric as he felt they were not really playing the game and were more here for each other. Similarly, Dora also voted for the couple to leave the house, following her heart in voting for Praise and Ka3na to stay because she was closer to the two of them. Erica also voted for the couple because they did not interact enough with the people in the house.
Nengi voted for Ka3na and Praise mostly because she did not get off to a good start with the former, and strategically voted the latter off as she felt he was too much of a threat. Trikytee shared similar sentiments, voting for Ka3na because she seemed ready to leave, and Praise because he sees him as a threat. Wathoni voted for Ka3na for the same reasons, but here is a twist: she says she doesn’t understand Praise and this was reason enough to vote him out. The all-round nice guy seems to be the target of many of his Housemates.
As we continue with those who voted Ka3ina out because of her attitude, Laycon voted for Eric, saying Eric because he did not want Lilo to leave, and Eric was unavailable because of his relationship. Although she misses Lilo, Vee voted for her to be Evicted from the House, believing that Lilo’s focus is elsewhere. Brighto feels like Eric was a threat to him, and that earned his vote.
Many of the guys voted the ladies off because they feel more connected to the guys. The members of this bromance include Ozo, Kiddwaya, Neo and Tochi.
Kaisha had another story to tell, her feeling is that Ka3na has so much going for her, she really did not need the house, whereas Lilo was just a random option.
Trikytee on the steering
Unlike previous Wager Task preps that usually had Praise at the driver’s seat, Trikytee grabbed the steering wheel this time hoping to drive the Lockdown Geng to their first Wager Task victory. Thanks to his video directorial background, it was easy to see why the Housemates had no problem with Trikytee being in charge. It was almost like he was cut out for this position as he assigned the Housemates their respective roles. A bit of a disciplinarian but he is bent on getting the job done
His charismatic leadership hasn’t gone unnoticed and you also noticed it.
Cracking up the team
There was a bit of humour when Brighto was asked to lead the Housemates in a song and just as he parted his lips and belted the first note, the rest of the Housemates broke into laughter. The more he tried, the more they laughed. It was almost impossible to stop. Showing exemplary leadership, Trikytee asked that order be restored and Brighto be given a chance, but that didn’t last for long as they soon broke into laughter the moment he started singing again.
Taking the back seat
Praise decided to take the back seat on this Task but he didn’t completely let go of the steering wheel as he stood right next to Trikytee echoing his instructions and dishing out his own too. You saw it and had a couple of things to say about it.
It is good seeing Trikytee coming out of his shell and his usual comedic demeanour and finally be in his element. Maybe the third time will be the charm for the Housemate for the Wager Task under Trikytee’s leadership.
In case you were curious, Eric said he would have voted for Ka3na if he had the opportunity, and Praise would have voted for Lucy.
Day 15: Trikytee grabs the wheel
Trikytee has been drafted to coach the Lockdown Geng for the Wager Task and he has settled into that position quite nicely.
The Housemates got briefed on their Wager Task for the week and preparation is already in top gear with Trikytee taking the reins of leadership. Having lost two Wager Tasks back to back, the pressure is on to deliver a stellar performance during this week’s Wager Task. No thanks to losing the last Wager Task, the Housemates have had their spending power reduced which in turn reduced their food supply.
