DStv viewers saw how reality set in for housemates on Big Brother: The Chase on Monday as they had to nominate each other for eviction, less than 24 hours after kicking off the game. Following Mondays first nomination show, the 5 housemates that are up for eviction this week are Ruby housemates Selly (Ghana) & Natasha (Malawi) and Diamonds Denzel (Uganda), Betty (Ethiopia) and Huddah (Kenya). Viewers can now decide who stays and who goes!
After a testing day which saw the housemates having to make nomination decisions on the fly, the lounges in both houses were in sombre mood as Big Brother delivered the nomination verdict.
Early on Day 1, the housemates in both houses got the chance to claim the honour of the fiercely contested Head of House role. Instead of battling it out in a task, Big Brother made the selection random, making the housemates select a ball from a box in the garden without peeking, the one who chose the winning ball would be Head of House for week 1. Feza picked the right ball in the Diamond house, while Beverly was victorious in the Ruby house.
The Diamonds’ nominations saw Huddah, Denzel and Elikem lead the pack with seven, six and four nominations, respectively. Betty, Annabel , Fatima, Bolt and Neyll picked up two nominations apiece, with Dellish picking up one. Diamond Head of House Feza stuck to her original nomination decision and saved Elikem, replacing him with Betty, who she had nominated during the day.
Once the Rubies had spoken, Selly and Bassey had 6 nominations each, with Natasha and Hakeem picking up three each. Cleo and Biguesas were each nominated twice, while Sulu, Maria, Beverley, ONeal, Koketso and Pokello were each nominated once. Beverley, in her role as Ruby Head of House, chose to save Bassey and put Natasha up for eviction in his place.
