The Ultimate Veto Power challenge is holding all week.
Earlier this week, Biggie gave the Housemates a stern warning where he cautioned them about their carelessness with the Red Box. Apparently, they initially weren’t aware of the importance of this box until Big Brother promised to reward them with severe consequences if the prized possession in their care goes missing.
The Holding Pocket
In the bid to keep the Red Box safe and secure, the Housemates came up with a plan to rotate the holder every day. Meaning whoever is in charge of the box holds the responsibility to secure it all through the day and in fact, treat it like an egg. Sounds like a good plan, right? While cooking in the kitchen, Ike asked if he could help Mercy out with the kitchen duties. In her response, “Don’t worry, all you have to do is to take care of the baby (the box),” she told him.
What then happens when the “baby” goes missing?
Today, Ike was in charge of the box and surprisingly, he did a great job keeping it safe, or so we thought… In a matter of seconds after the thought breezed through our minds, Diane came into the kitchen to ask about the box. It then hit us that we might have judged too quickly.
The Red Hunt
It was not until after Ollie visited the House and Diane had brought up the subject that Ike realised he might have been beaten at his own game. How can the resident Coin bandit be stolen from? “How dare the thief,” we thought.
The trio combed the House in search of the Red Box and we reckon that the fear of being tagged as a careless holder made Ike keep the information to himself. Well, until the box went missing for a few more minutes, then Ike didn’t have a choice but to alert the other members of the Pepper Dem Gang.
The Unusual Suspect
The moment Diane walked into the Kitchen to ask Mercy and Ike about the Red Box, they accused her of taking it. Trust Diane to pull off an innocent face when the need arises, Of course with this, she was able to confuse them and in turn, take them off guard.
Again, Seyi and Cindy went to meet Diane in the Head of House room (while she was chilling with le boo) and confronted her about the missing box. Dear Diane had them fooled again with her innocent look as she denied coming across the box. With the way she took on this acting role, we had no choice but to stan!
Oh, The Thief!
Oh dear, a thief that confesses even before the judge’s trial, is that one a thief? Well, we guess it’s safe to say that her relationship with the Icy pair made her lessen their anxiety. Friendship goals or nah?
Like a thief in the night, Diane ran in to get the box and within the same second-placed it in the Dressing Room. She might have had them fooled but the shock on their faces could not be hidden as Ike, Cindy and Seyi heard about the caught thief. Mercy, on the other hand, was unbothered because according to her, she could tell that her friend was lying.
Like a bear keeping its cub from harm, Ike told Mercy that he left the Red Box in the bathroom, just because he knew how angry she would have been if she knew the truth. So, rather than reveal the truth, Ike told a lie for his resident daughter. How cute?
Out Of Sight
For Ike, a second steal will not be happening again… At least, not on his watch!
It might have been a prank today but how long will the Pepper Dem Gang be able to secure the Ultimate VPH Box before Sunday? Seeing how careless and quick to react they can get, we can’t wait to see a new side of them as they work as a team in achieving this goal.
