New mates, new dynamics Dynamics Change as New Housemates Enter BBNaija ‘Pepper Dem’ House.
At the beginning of the ‘Pepper Dem’ Season, Big Brother, the ever-invisible landlord informed the Housemates (and by extension viewers of the show) to always expect the unexpected. Some surprises have indeed manifested, including the Eviction of Housemates without being Nominated, the fake Eviction of Seyi and Tacha and their subsequent re-introduction into the House to the astonishment of their fellow Housemates.
However, in the past week, Big Brother unveiled the biggest twist yet when five new Housemates entered the House. Actress, Venita Akpofure, and actor-cum-comedian, Elozonam Ogbolu went in on Tuesday, while Enkay, a 25-year-old tailor and Joe Abdallah, a creative director, were introduced on Wednesday. Cindy completed the line-up of the new entrants on Thursday.
The expressions on the faces of the older Housemates when the five new competitors entered the House indicated how shocked they were at the development. They thought they had seen the last of unexpected twists, but they failed to realize that ‘Biggie’ has a lot more surprises up his sleeve. In their Diary sessions during the week, the ‘originals’ wondered why new persons were brought in the first place. During one of her Diary sessions, Mercy speciafically told Big Brother that she wanted people to leave and not keep coming back.
Some of the other older Housemates were visibly excited by the latest additions. Omashola, for example, has been exclaiming how Venita hails from the same state as him and how he wants to get paired with her. He even admitted that the actress’ beauty had made him lose focus. Frodd, on the other hand, has been using his position as HOH to get closer to the new ladies. He offered his bed space to Venita and formed a ‘protective ring’ around Enkay. He even publicly proclaimed that he is getting jealous and would not want to see her with anybody. For a guy who suffered a ‘heartbreak’ with Esther, he surely wants to ensure he is not jolted again.
The newbies have promised to bring the real ‘pepper’, which they claimed was missing prior to now. Venita stated that she will bring confusion, fun and drama to; Enkay described herself as the missing salt; Elozonam said he would bring goofiness; Joe disclosed that he intends to bring trouble; while Cindy vowed to bring drama and not tolerate any nonsense.
What traits the new entrants will exhibit remains to be seen, but it’s clear the dynamics of the Game have been significantly altered for the original 14 Housemates. If the oldies felt too relaxed, the presence of the four new competitors has surely banished complacency and will force them to readjust their game plans.
