#BBHotshots: Sipe wins Head of House & DStv Highlights

The power of the Big Brother Hotshots Head of House came to the fore on Monday night as it saved nominee Sipe from the list, but saw immunity holder Samantha placed firmly in the firing line. The South African is joined by Goitse (Botswana); last week’s Head of House Idris (Tanzania); Mr. 265 (Malawi) and Macky2 (Zambia).

When the dust had settled on Sunday night, Mr. 265, Macky2, Sipe and Idris garnered the most nominations – alongside Goitse, who was automatically nominated after failing to keep still during last week’s ‘freeze’ task. The Head of House task on Monday morning saw Tayo, Idris and Sipe competing in a challenging battle of wits – and knots – as they had to navigate the garden while tied into a rope, slowly working their way through various points in an effort to free themselves. Sipe eventually prevailed, meaning that she was immune from nomination this week.

When Big Brother announced the nomination results to the housemates on Monday evening, Idris’ expression clearly indicated his dismay – in stark contrast to Sipe’s joy at her immunity. The new Head of House wasted no time in making her way to the Diary Room to reveal her ‘add’ decision. In a great twist which illustrated just how much power the Head of House holds, she was able to name Samantha as her choice – despite the South African being immune from nomination by any other housemate, by virtue of being part of the winning Extravagana task team on Saturday. Sipe had clearly indicated which way her vote was going to go during an earlier Diary Session with Big Brother, where she had even expressed her displeasure at seeing that Samantha’s StarMeter gift – a sparkling pink gift basket – was her favourite colour.

The other housemates who picked up nominations – but aren’t in line to leave this coming Sunday, were Butterphly and Ellah, with three apiece.
