Former Big Brother Naija season 5 Lockdown star and reality television ex-housemate Dorathy Bachor has opined that former Pepper Dem star and first runner-up, Mike Edwards wasn’t strong enough to contend with the Pepper Dem show winner, Mercy Chinenyenwa Eke.
According to Dorathy, she didn’t see Mike as a stronger contender to have challenged Mercy Eke for the season 4 Pepper Dem show crown.
And Dorathy, going further added that she’s not saying this from a place of hate, because she likes Mike a lot.
It’s just that looking at how the Tacha’s disqualification played out, Mercy Eke was left with the golden opportunity, and Mike was there not as strong as it would have being between Mercy Eke and Tacha.
Besides, the See Gobe star Bisola prior to Dorathy’s opinion said that Mercy Eke winning the Pepper Dem show was a conscious and deliberate action from viewers who vowed that a woman must win the show in 2019.
At that point, Dorathy disagreed. When asked by Ebuka if she agrees with Bisola, Dora said, “No, I think with Mercy, there wasn’t a… I love Mike (the 1st runner-up) a lot, but there wasn’t a stronger contender. I love Mike and I feel like Mike was amazing. But the fact that he was married took it a little bit away from the fact”.
Other ladies in the studio disagree with Dorathy, as they unanimously insisted that Mike getting into the House as a decent married man was a plus for him, because he behaved maturely and uncommonly.
The discussion above happened during the Blackbox Roundtable Conversations between the Big Brother Naija season 1 star and TV host Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, as well as other previous seasons female contestants, such as Bisola, Tboss, Alex, Cee C, Tacha, Mercy Eke, Dorathy and Erica.
