The phrase “Congratulations Yelisa” trended on Twitter almost immediately after Yemi Cregx and Nelisa were named the new Big Brother Titans Head of House (HoH).
With only 16 housemates left to compete for the US$100,000 grand prize, first-time nominees and this week’s Tails of House, Royals (Ebubu & Tsatsii) along with Thabana (Nana & Thabang), Khosicle (Khosi & Miracle OP), Juvone (Justin & Yvonne) and Blaqleng (Blaqboi & Ipeleng) have been nominated for possible eviction on Sunday.
However, they have no idea that no housemate will be evicted this week as it is a fake nomination.
During the nomination process, Yelisa used their veto power to save one pair of housemates and replace them with another. It was a confident swap between Kaniva and Blaqleng, who had not been nominated in this week’s round.
This week, Biggie required that housemates provide substantiation for their nominations, with five of the eight teams stating that the Royals should experience the pressure of the eviction process.
After Miracle OP and Yvonne broke the rules governing last week’s Great Divide, Biggie barred Khosicle and Juvone from participating in this week’s challenge for HoH. During the Great Divide task, men and women in the house were forbidden to communicate directly or indirectly with each other.
For this week’s challenge, participating housemates had two rounds to determine whether they would be HoH or Tails of House.
During the first round, housemates needed to spell out a 12-letter word for 20 minutes. Each had a dictionary and three bins with 100 letters of the alphabet scattered among other objects to explore. Biggie didn’t believe in ease, so five dance breaks were scheduled throughout the 20 minutes to throw everyone off balance.
Because Ebubu broke one of the rules, his team was disqualified and named this week’s Tails.
After their victory, Yelisa and Kaniva were given a map of the world, along with words stating the names of the continents and oceans. They had to place those words correctly on the map. In the end, Yelisa were crowned the King of Geography by Biggie.
