#BBTitans Housemates Catch a Welcome Break as No One is Evicted From Biggie’s Mansion


Big Brother Titans co-host Lawrence Maleka might have been flying solo without Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, but he was sure to make thehousemates sweat bullets during the live eviction show.

Meanwhile, everyone except the housemates knew this week’s nominations were fake and that no one would go home. Up for fake eviction were: Blaqleng (Blaqboi & Ipeleng); Juvone (Justin & Yvonne); Khosicle (Khosi & Miracle OP); Royals (Ebubu & Tsatsii); and Thabana (Nana & Thabang).

This week’s Head of House was Yelisa (Yemi Cregx & Nelisa), and the housemates continued their winning streak, coming out tops yet again in the wager.

Describing the competition – 42 days in as of eviction night – as a “wild ride” so far, Lawrence ensured it got even wilder as he had housemates squirming with his questions, which left no stone unturned and covered everything from romances to friendships.

Nelisa was first to get the third degree, as Lawrence asked her if leading the housemates to a wager win as HoH helped get her mind off her are-they-or-aren’t-they relationship with Thabang. She could only muster up a shy “um, yes”, while Thabang also couldn’t really answer Lawrence’s questions about what was happening between them.

Other housemates were bolder in their declarations of romance, with Kanaga Jnr and Tsatsii both confirming that they were officially in L-word territory. The two also gave us the most emotional part of the eviction show when they both broke down crying in relief once they learned Tsatsii wasn’t going home this week.

Lawrence zoned in on Yvonne next, reminding her that just weeks ago she had declared she wasn’t in the game to make friends. When asked what had changed, she said: “I just found myself genuinely connecting with people, and I really appreciate that.”

When Olivia was quizzed on her friendship with Blue Aiva, she said the two of them “connect a lot in various ways”. Lawrence didn’t let her off the hook that easily, asking her why she had told other housemates that some in the house disliked Blue Aiva.

After all, if their friendship is genuine, surely then Olivia should have told Blue Aiva this instead of talking about it behind her back? A valid question Olivia brushed off by denying she ever said this, with Lawrence then reminding her that everything in the house is on camera.

Speaking of Blue Aiva, Lawrence later asked her: “You keep referring to yourself as an ‘operator’ and saying that you have operated on people in the house, what do you mean by that?” A demure Blue Aiva simply answered: “Nothing. I don’t operate at all. I am not an operator.”

Operators or not, centre of attention or in the background – only time will tell which strategy ultimately pays off and who will win the grand prize of US$100,000 in 36 days’ time. Ziyakhala wahala in the #BBTitans house!

Yes, the housemates were safe this week, but who knows what tomorrow brings?
