The BBNaija ships are winning this season as the ‘WhiteQueen/QueenMoney’ ship takes over from EmmaRose in the Head of House suite. WhiteMoney cemented his place as the HoH for week 8 after winning the challenge Monday night.
Big Brother retained the twist from week 7 – the first runner up gets to use the ‘save and replace’ veto power, while the HoH gets immunity and other privileges.
Before the HoH challenge began, the housemates went through the usual nomination rounds, at the end of which had Angel, Yousef, Emmanuel, Saskay, and Nini up for possible eviction.
The rules were the same for this week’s challenge. As expected, there were a few elements that made the challenge harder. The housemates had to loose shoelaces, drink water, pick a bead out of slime and make sure it’s clean before placing it in a glass bowl. They also had to pick a die from another bowl, roll a six to continue the challenge, and walk on a beam with unbalanced items. The competition is getting fiercer as the finale draws near, so housemates were ready to play the HoH challenge to the best of their abilities.
WhiteMoney started the game on a good note by landing on 26. Next, Saga tried to beat WhiteMoney’s time, but luck was not on his side as he had to restart the game three times. Liquorose also struggled to find a six, and with only 30 seconds left, she barely made it to 9.
Pere’s game was stalled by the shoelaces as he ended on tile 16. Cross also battled with the shoelaces but managed to make it all the way to 18. Queen had a weak game that ended on 4 and left her in tears for a while. Saskay gave the game a good try but lost steam when she had to down a 75cl bottle of water on tile 9.
Angel couldn’t be bothered to really play the game and ended on 4. Yousef ran fast, but he was defeated by the water bottle on tile 9. Nini ended the game on the same high note WhiteMoney started with. She made it to 25 and became the first runner-up.
This win automatically gave Nini the veto power to save and replace. She promptly removed herself from possible eviction and put Cross up instead.
WhiteMoney also assumed his role as HoH, gaining immunity and making Queen his deputy HoH. This means that Angel, Cross, Emmanuel, Saskay, and Yousef are up for possible eviction on Sunday, 19 September 2021.
With only two weeks left in the BBNaija Shine Ya Eye season, the tension is high and the housemates are desperate to stay in the competition till the very last day! Voting opened on the Africa Magic website, mobile site and via the MyDStv and MyGOtv apps on Monday at 10 pm and will close Thursday, 16 September 2021 at 9 pm WAT.
