A new twist has been introduced in the Big Brother Naija house as nominations and eviction have been scrapped for the week.
However, only the head of house, Maria, has been informed that there would be no eviction on Sunday.
In a private Diary Session, Big Brother told her to make the housemates believe that there would be an eviction.
Big Brother said, “Today’s nomination comes with a twist. Big Brother would like you to listen carefully. This week, there are no nominations and no public votes. Therefore, no eviction come Sunday.
“The last part, that is, the no eviction on Sunday, Big Brother would like you to keep it a secret from your fellow housemates.
“You are not to disclose this to any of your fellow housemates including your deputy.
“Maria, you are to convince the house that Big Brother has scrapped today’s nominations and has given you the absolute power to evict two housemates on Sunday.
“Convince the house that the housemates who least impress you will be evicted. Tell them that you will develop a scoring system or a system of ranking them. You have the freedom to build on these rules as you desire.”
To make the twist look real, Big Brother provided Maria with a writing sheet and a pen to enable her develop a scoring system.
Big Brother promised Maria that there is a reward for her if she can successfully convince housemates to believe the twist. However, failure to do so will come with a consequence.
In the same vein, Big Brother also told Maria that she should not use her position as a means to turn other housemates to slaves.
After the Diary session, Maria showed her good acting skills as she tearfully told the housemates that there are no nominations and she’ll have to choose two housemates for eviction on Sunday.
The housemates believed her and even made attempts to console her. She further addresses them stating that she does not dislike anybody but will only do as she is told.
