Big Brother Naija S3 Day 43: Biggie plays the ace of spades and the Housemate are left both relieved and shocked

If the saying ‘change is the only constant’ wasn’t relevant before, saying it is now would be a complete understatement because that’s all we’re being served today.

Pairs Dissolved

At last, well at least some of them, the dreaded pairs have been dissolved and Housemates get to stand alone and balance their own bridges.  They were all clearly hit hard by the almost completely random pairing. With each focused on their individual games and low key backdoor plotting; having to tone it down and share both the grace and the disgrace threw them off and laid them in the comfort zones from which they refused to exit in the past few weeks. The weaker threads depended on their strong links and this whole dynamic was the reason for the internal wars the Housemates have been having. Now that they’ve been freed from the burden of being ‘their brothers’ keepers’, the Nomination promise to be more strategy than empathy; cut throat and downright dirty.

The Nominations

We can’t tell whether the fast pace at which the Nominations took place is owed to the Housemates’ release from the pair prison or to the fact that Biggie drove his own wagon; with Rico Swavey as exception, the Housemates matched the wagon’s speed and fired away, Nominating their adversaries. Seeing as the process wasn’t coordinated, the results came as a shocker and Housemates were finally given the right of passage to reveal what they thought of each other, in Nomination form of course. The results saw more than three thirds of the House closer to the chopping boarder. All but HoH Nina and Rico Swavey are up for Eviction and this is how it went down:

Housemate Nominations
Anto Teddy A + Alex
Rico Swavey Cee-C + Miracle
Cee-C Anto + Alex
Lolu Rico Swavey + Bambam
Bambam Tobi + Anto
Tobi Teddy A + Bambam
Alex Bambam + Cee-C
Teddy A Tobi + Miracle
Miracle Cee-C + Lolu
Nina Bambam + Lolu

No Save and Replace

This day should officially be renamed and ‘Dissolved’ would be a fitting replacement.  The HoH privileges has also been sifted and awarded in very small portions. Instead of the normal Save and Replace, reigning queen Nina had to make do with just the Immunity, thanks the Chance Card she picked, ‘Immunity from Nominations Only – No Save and Replace’. The games have finally begun.

Anto, Cee-C, Lolu, Bambam, Tobi, Alex, Teddy A and Miracle are up for Eviction. Vote for your favourite pair here or via SMS. Voting closes on Thursday 8 March at 21:00 WAT.
