Latest developments at the Sunday live eviction show of the Big Brother Naija Season 7: Level Up TV show has drawn the irks of some viewers of the show.
During the eviction show, Biggie introduced a new twist when he unveiled the Level 3 house, but this e addition shocked housemates and viewers.
The Level Up season started with the house divided into Level 1 and Level 2. Both houses were later merged.
At the last eviction show, three housemates, Doyin, Eloswag, and Chomzy were evicted from the main Level Up house. But rather than being ushered into the stage for the eviction interviews, they were sent to the Level 3 house.
Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, Big Brother Naija host, said the three housemates had been evicted but Big Brother decided to retain them as guests in the house. While they will participate in house tasks with other housemates till September 18, they are no longer in contention for the N100 million prize.
The evicted contestants and remaining housemates are not aware of the whole plan.
The producer of the reality TV show, in a statement, said the House Guests are no longer in the running for the highly coveted Grand Prize but are eligible to earn winnings from Sponsored Tasks.
“Unbeknownst to them and the Housemates, they will occupy Level 3 until 18 September at the very least, partaking in normal House activities such as Diary Sessions, Tasks and Head of House Games. Nominations also remain the same, but no one in the House would know if the House Guests are Evicted or not.
“Since then, the former Level 2 has remained vacant, until now. Level 2 has now become Level 3; a home for the Evicted Housemates. These Housemates will no longer be referred to as such but as House Guests,” the statement added.
However, reactions of fans on the Internet revealed that many did not like the new development. Many alleged that the Level 3 House was created because Biggie’s favourite housemates, Chomzy and Eloswag have been eliminated from the show.
These reactions included:
mismark_beauty: Why Eloswag too? Soo unfair to the Level 2 housemate that left
ebun_oluwaofficial: So now I think they want to make the level 3 housemates the jury, they will also be part of we the viewer to determine the winner of the show.
