The new twist introduced by Big Brother in the BBTitans House on Monday, March 6, Day 50 of the show, and probably the 8th week in the House had the Housemates in great quagmire.
Biggie, before the Monday’s Head of House game dissolved all the pairs in the House. And this meant that the remaining six pairs, KhosiCle, ThabaNa, KanIva, JuVone, BlaqLeng, Royals now play the BBTitans game as single contestants.
And no one among the remaining Housemates has to be reliable on the other’s behaviour, treats or game to succeed or fail in the Biggie’s House. Plus, none of them will have to depend on partner’s support to avoid being nominated.
According to Biggie, the Head of House challenge for the week 8 is tagged Supreme Head of House game, which gives the winner the Supreme Veto Power. And unknowingly to the Housemates, this veto power means that the winner automatically earns himself or herself a spot in the finale and may be given the power to evict Housemate.
Head of House Challenge
The Head of House game, according to Big Brother was divided into three rounds. First round involves the male Housemates, while the second round involves the female Housemates. Then, the winner in the first and second rounds meet at the final round to determine the winner.
After the first round of the game, Blaqboi qualified for the final round. And for the female round, Ipeleng emerged winner. And this means that Blaqboi and Ipeleng would take part in the final round.
Blaqboi, who was paired with Ipeleng, but now dissolved, went head to head with her in the final round. However, Ipeleng emerged winner in the final round, making her the Head of House and Supreme Veto Power Holder.
Head of House and Supreme Veto Power Holder’s benefits
By the virtue of winning the week 8 Head of House and Supreme Veto Power, Big Brother announced that South African Housemate Ipeleng has emerged the overall Housemate with a veto power.
This also means that Ipeleng won’t get nominated at anytime, for the remaining part of her stay in the Big Brother House, plus she has automatically earned a spot in the BBTitans season 1 Ziyakhala Wahala show finale.
Big Brother made it known to the Housemates that Ipeleng won’t have to worry about getting nominated anymore, because she’s already a finalist.
Ipeleng equally earned access to the Head of House luxury apartment, although, she has to enjoy her stay up there with a partner of opposite gender. Ipeleng, on picking a partner, mentioned Blaqboi, who wholeheartedly accepted to enjoy the Head of House room with her.
Meanwhile, recall that two envelops containing certain powers was announced by Big Brother to belong to any Housemate who emerges the Head of House and Supreme Veto Power Holder.
After winning the Head of House and Supreme Veto Power, Ipeleng was instructed by Biggie to open the first envelope which contains the above benefits. However, Big Brother added that the second envelope will be opened on Sunday, during the live eviction show.
And from all indications, the second envelope may contain the privilege for the Supreme Veto Power holder Ipeleng to evict Housemate of her choice, without involvement of the voting public and viewers.
In view of the above skepticism, viewers have taken to Twitter to revolt and react in disagreement to what Big Brother may have up his sleeves this Sunday. Below are some of the reactions.
Sheila: “Big brother please. Let her not evict housemates , all of them should be up while we vote. It will be unfair if that happens because a lot of fans has been contributing money and spent a lot of time rooting for their faves to win. Please biggie give us chance to vote”.
Belynda_arthur: “Irrespective of being happy for Ipeleng, let Biggie not make that mistake of giving Ipeleng power to evict. The show is for the viewers. The viewers decide who wins. Don’t make that mistake before we boycott the show. Cus everyone knows Khosi is the winner for this season”.
Thandek: “I’m hearing ppl saying that the envelope might contains the power for ipeleng to evict and my question is when will they all have packed their bags to prepare for the eviction since there was no nominations for this week ai this show is confusing now”.
Ebolu Luciana: “She better not evict anyone because that will be a great disrespect to us.And I know she will evict Khosi”.
