Bbnaija Day 10
With 300 Bet9ja Coins at stake, the Housemates pair with the strongest partner.
Apart from playing fun Games, another thing the Housemates have an affinity for is finding other Housemates to pair up with. Sometimes the pairings are romantic (side eye Gedoni and Khafi) and other times, they are of the gossip nature. So it really wasn’t so hard for them to select a partner to pair up as ordered by Biggie who was in a generous mood and ready to reward them with 300 Bet9ja Coins for the Task ahead. Nelson who is currently the Head of House was exempted from this.
Bbnaija Day 10
The Wager Drama
Deciding a social cause to focus on for the Wager Task had tempers flaring. Tacha who never shies away from confrontation was at the centre of attention as her topic of feminism raised a few eyebrows among the rest of the other Housemates who wanted to choose a more balanced cause. They settled for domestic abuse, but it was still contentious and as Tacha wanted it to majorly reflect the abuses women deal with while the rest of the Housemates wanted a gender-balanced approach. Unable to come to an agreement, Tacha stormed off to continue cooking leaving the Housemates to continue without her. A plea from Seyi and Ike eventually brought her back to join the Team.
As the Housemates rehearsed for the Wager Task Presentation Night play Seyi showed exemplary directorial skills as he kept supplying lines and defining the roles of each of the Housemate. Known for showing charismatic leadership despite having never been the Head of House, Seyi showed a new side with his directorial debut. Who knew he had it in him.
The success of the Wager Task Presentation depends on how well the Housemates handle their rehearsals. How well will they do?
Who’s The Spiciest Game Player?
In this Pepper Dem game, it’s time to separate those who are playing games from the real game players.
While we await more heat from the Pepper Dem gang, let’s analyze what may seem like their strategies. Or so they think…
Would you agree if we named Omashola the leader of this pack? From his diary sessions to his story-time(s) with his fellow Housemates, he has delivered a series of comic moments to our screens. Could this be his strategy? If so, how long will this keep him in the game?
Now what do we say about Seyi, we reckon he has also given us some funny screen times; do you agree?
What happens when a Housemate falls asleep during a freeze moment?
As a little relief exercise in the Pepper Dem House, Biggie surprised the Housemates with amusing freezing moments. As anticipated, Biggie’s Ninjas played a major role in the freeze times. Trust us to capture the different categories the Housemates portrayed during this little exercise:
The Snoring Hulk
While proving to be smarter than Biggie, the Housemates took comfortable positions as soon as the heard him shout – Freeze! In their respective “fake sleeping” positions, our very own Mike, was found snoring, as he had already moved past the freeze moment and moved straight into dreamland.
Bonnie and Clyde
We always have that one couple that does everything together. Eat together, play together and freeze together. Our Pepper Dem couple of the Season – Ghedoni, served couple goals during the freeze moments. Biggie’s Ninjas did not spare them during the whip cream rounds they had in the garden, as they were the easy target for Biggie’s torture.
Bbnaija Day 10
Ike was seen fighting a Ninja who attempted to take off his sunglasses during the freeze exercise. This prompted Biggie’s Ninjas to raid the House for the second round of freeze session – as an act of revenge for Ike. Unfortunately, the other Housemates suffered the whip cream torture, except Jeff who saw the whip cream punishment as a treat, as he licked off the cream as the Ninjas sprayed on.
Omashola did not fail to portray his goofy side during this freeze times.
Roles and Props
Earlier today, Big Brother asked the Housemates to form a pair. Each pair was further tasked to select a pair leader. The essence of this was for the Housemates to develop their acting skills in preparation for the Thursday Night Play Presentation. What’s at stake? A 100 Bet9ja Coins each for the Best Celebrity actor and the Best Celebrity PA actor.
Half of a Pair
The task of the day was read by Nelson and here is what it entailed. One half of each pair must play the role of an internationally acclaimed celebrity. The remaining half of the pair must play the role of a personal assistant to their celebrity. Being an assistant demanded that they cook, clean, massage and pamper their celebrity whatever manner the celebrity demands.
As soon as the Housemates heard the privileges attached to being a celebrity actor, some of them started clamouring for a change. Too late guys, you already chose your leader and Biggie took note of that. Better luck next time.
As part of the role-playing, Big Brother had props delivered to the House. Immediately Nelson announced the storeroom was opened, the Housemates made a beeline for it but the Head of House took control of the situation and distributed the props. Way to go, HoH!
Celebrities bring your game on!
It was a buzz in the House as the Housemates got into their roles proper. PAs like Jeff, Khafi Frodd and Omashola made sure their celebrities were at ease. The celebrity actors- Jackye, KimOpra, Sir Dee, Seyi and Gedoni brought as much obnoxiousness and diva attitude to the game as they could manage with their impersonation of Kanye West, Jay-Z and Beyoncé. With these performances, we don’t envy Nelson his job of selecting the best performance.

Cake, Wine And Music
Hurray! It’s the first birthday in the Pepper Dem House.
It’s Thelma’s birthday and with all the celebrities’ role play and rehearsals for their Thursday Night Play Presentation, it felt as if we were missing something.
For a moment, we are sure Thelma thought Big Brother forgot her birthday. The fact that nothing was happening prompted Thelma to take to her bed early. However, a delivery came into the House and we saw Nelson and Mike carrying cake and wine into the HoH room.
All is set for the surprise party, except the celebrant. The party planners consisting of Nelson, Tuoyo, Khafi, Sir Dee and Mike went to drag Thelma from her bed. When she entered the HoH room, the look on her face was that of awe as she glimpsed the goodies before her.
To set the groove rolling, Biggie turned on the music. Trust the Pepper Dem Housemates now, they never pass up the opportunity to whine and grind. In the lead was our Celebrant-Thelma and she didn’t hesitate to Pepper us with her hot dance moves.
To the Zanku Queen
The Housemates had a few words for Thelma. Mike (whose birthday is the next day) said she is full of energy and knows how to keep her cool. Mercy said Thelma is a confident girl, very vocal and she should keep being herself. Tuoyo, ‘Sugar daddy’- Seyi, Frodd, Jeff and Sir Dee were the spiritual fathers of the day as they showered prayers on her. Esther with whom she had a verbal clash yesterday also said a prayer for her. Jackye’s words were interesting as she told Thelma- “your brain dey touch sometimes” before she went on to pray for her.
We were happy to see the smile on Thelma’s face and we say thank you to Bet9ja for the cake.
