If we didn’t believe in the ‘the first will be last and the last first’ philosophy, it’s safe to say that we do now because Nina has gone against all the odds and managed to bag her very first win in the House; a win that happens to be the most important.
Not All is Fair in Warfare
We can’t necessarily use the word ‘fair’ to describe Nina’s share of the unlucky end of the stick because compared to the other Housemates, she’s had to swallow a whole lot more. If she wasn’t under constant surveillance, we’d attribute her victory to a couple of burnt offerings and maybe a few weeks of dry fasting because it was not expected at all. Her thirst for the win was demonstrated when she had an emotional break down during one of her diary sessions,complaining about her lack of luck. However, the Universe definitely conspired in her favour and brought her the win on a silver platter; bruising the puffed Tobi’s ego, pulling the rug from under Cee-C and denting Miracle’s confidence.
Thorns on The Throne
Her reign was met with a bit of resistance though, not from the other Housemates but the game itself. Instead of the normal Save and Replace, Nina had to choose a chance card and thanks to the stars that aligned in her favour, she managed to retain her reign and immunity by choosing the ‘Immunity from Nominations Only – No Save and Replace’ card. We all know that had the dynamics remained unchanged, she would have Saved Miracle at the blink of an eye but to his and many’s dismay, the chances of that happening were thrown out the window.
Nina needs to write the Universe a love letter because she has dodged a very well targeted bullet. Just when everyone was pushed in the solo battlefield, the gets to watch from the side-lines, shaded by immunity. The other Housemates seem to have considered themselves titans in relations to Nina, so then, may the clash of the ‘titans’ begin.
