So far we have introduced you to fifteen of the Big Brother Hotshots that will be on your screens in just over a week. We’ve met a host of very strong characters mixed with creative and bubbly personalities.
Confidence is a quality that all of the housemates seem to have in common. Macky2 from Zambia, Mr265 and Luis’ six-pack have this in buckets full. Luis from Namibia is extremely proud of his 6-pack, and Lilian from Nigeria oozes sex appeal, she even promises to “twerk for you,” Africa. Alusa of Kenya says that, “you will always be entertained by this sexy man.”
It seems there is a reigning beauty queen in Uganda’s Ellah, the 23 year old says that her alter ego is the “crazy one, bitchy and a straight talker.” How will this go over with the other housemates? Ellah and Esther represent Uganda, and whilst one is almost arrogant in her assessment of herself, the other has a sparkling personality but will not stand for anybody “putting her into a conflict if she does not deserve to be there.”
A common assessment is that most won’t walk around the house naked. Idris, the 21-year-old photographer from Tanzania will not walk naked in the house, as he “will scare somebody I am an African” he adds. Ellah, however, confesses that she will shower naked in the house. Something we are sure will raise many a temperature across the continent. Most of the housemates just want to have a good laugh and experience?
A lack of strategy going into the house is a common answer when asked if they have a strategy to win. The majority of the housemates say that strategies change as the time goes on and as the pressure mounts in the house.
It’s only once all of the cliques have been set and the game is in full swing that they can really devise a strategy. Will the pet peeves start to influence how the audience vote? Will Goitse annoy people as she “talks too much?” People annoy Idris “… who think they know too much.”
These are only some of the pet-peeve confessions that the housemates have submitted. Will they be able to avoid confrontation when there seems to be some strong, opinionated and straight talkers in the house? Perhaps the dislike of confrontation will keep these opinions in check.
With so many charming, complex, engaging, disarming, sexy, spontaneous, fun and exciting characters on display, Big Brother Africa promises explosive entertainment.
We won’t know if these egos will clash or if will there be sparks flying in the house as each tries to outdo the other, but one thing that all of them can be sure about is the Africa will be watching…
