The housemates on Big Brother: The Chase may have struggled to nominate each other for eviction after just 24 hours in the game last Monday, but this week DStv audiences saw how alliances, relationships and grudges fuelled a tense nomination day in the houses.
When the dust had settled and the Heads of House had had their say during Monday night’s first nomination show, Ruby housemates Koketso & LK4 and Diamonds Feza, Hakeem & Dillish found themselves up for eviction this week but the final decision is now all up to the viewers!
Following a shocking first set of evictions, which saw Huddah and Denzel leave on Sunday, it was time for housemates to sharpen their minds on who they will be nominating. The Diamonds’ nominations saw Bolt lead the pack with 5, followed by Hakeem and Dillish with 4 each.
The bulk of the housemates cited Bolt’s perceived laziness as a motivating factor for their nominations, while Hakeem was put in the firing line because the housemates felt he was clearly not happy to find himself in the Diamond house. Bimp and Fatima avoided nomination altogether.
Diamond Head of House Betty was only ever going to save one housemate as part of her ‘save & replace’ decision – and didn’t disappoint by saving love interest Bolt from the block and putting Feza up for eviction in his place. Relations between Betty and Feza have been rocky since day one, with the Tanzanian nominating the Ethiopian last week and also putting her up for eviction in Elikem’s place.
The housemates predominantly cited Biguesas’ lack of participation in life in the house as their reason for nominating him, while many seem to be seeing LK4 as being particularly manipulative. Neyll has received a frosty reception since being swapped over during the Airtel Arena Showdown last week, reflected in the nominations he received.
Selly, in her role as Ruby Head of House, also let her heart lead her ‘save & replace’ decision, sparing Biguesas and replacing him with Koketso.
