In what feels like something so unbelievable it almost has to be scripted, Ebubu & Tsatsii (Royals)won the privilege and responsibility of the Head of House (HoH) challenge, showing that they are comfortable as a pair and ready to take control of the game.
Making the nominations list for eviction this Sunday are: Jenni O & Mmeli (Jenne Li); Juicy J & Olivia (Juiovla); Blue Aiva & Kanaga Jnr (Kaniva); Khosi & Miracle OP (Khosicle); Nana & Thabang (Thabana); Nelisa & Yemi Cregx (Yelisa); and Justin and Yvonne (Juvone).
For last night’s HoH challenge, the housemates had three arduous rounds to prove themselves worthy of the HoH badge of honour.
Following multiple rounds for this week’s challenge – the first requiring throwing balls at a Velcro target board – a visibly devastated Yvonne was disqualified for breaking one of the rules, also resulting in her and Justin being named this week’s Tails.
For the second round, one partner from the remaining pairs had to use their fingers to flip three cups until one of them landed in either an upright position or upside down, leading to the Royals facing off against Marvin & Yaya (Maya) in the final round.
Ultimately, it was Ebubu & Tsatsii’s speed and precision that proved superior.
While carving out a place for themselves in the game, the Royals used their veto power to return a past favour and save Blaqboi & Ipeleng (Blaqleng) from possible eviction, replacing them with Juvone. After winning the HoH title during week 2, Blaqleng used their veto power to save Royals.
