Week 8 of bbnaija has not been quite as eventful as I’d wanted it to be, following the Elozonam not saving Diane thing. But here’s a rundown of what happened during week 8. 


Big Brother asked the housemates to move to the arena for this week’s nomination challenge. They were supposed to fill up cups with spoons in their various teams one by one. The Icons were the winners, automatically making Cruisetopia the losers. This also left Mike, Gedoni, Seyi, Venita, Diane, Mercy, and Jackye up for possible eviction. Esther was automatically safe after she won immunity when she won the Head of House title. Elozonam, being the veto power holder was asked to use his save and replace option and he surprisingly saved Venita and replaced her with Frodd. 


Nothing much really happened on this day, except Venita showing her appreciation to Elozonam in the Dressing Room. Afterward, Elozonam told her his reason which was “we’re in the same shoes, we want the same thing.” In his conversation with Esther in the garden regarding this same issue, Elozonam said he only made the Save and Replace decision because he hasn’t spent a long time in the bbnaija House and neither has Venita.

I also wasn’t surprised to see Venita talk about Khafi gossiping about her. She talked about it to Ike, Mercy, Elozonam and, Gedoni.


During the diary sessions, Big Brother asked the housemates to campaign for votes from viewers on behalf of the housemates up for eviction. Each housemate was to pick one of the housemates up for eviction and campaign on their behalf. 


It was a great week seeing the housemates work together to achieve the theme of healthy living. Team Cruisetopia may have lost the bbnaija Nomination Challenge but that did not seem to be getting in the way for a big win in this week’s Wager Task. They started their day early, preparing for the task ahead. The Icons had a slow day as only a couple of them got up to the Task preparation in the latter part of the day. Unfortunately for Cruisetopia, The Icons won the wager.

It was also Esther’s birthday and Tacha cooked and wore sexy lingerie for her twin (her boyfriend).


When the housemates got back from their morning workout, they were asked to freeze and ninjas came in to litter the house. It was punishment for leaving the house in a mess in the first place.
As punishment for not winning the task on Thursday, Big Brother punished Cruisetopia by making them scrub the floor of a passage with toothbrushes. Tacha also joined in this punishment because they were asked to freeze and she didn’t.
