It was a plot twist that left Efe speechless and giggling in disbelief. Biggie revealed that this week HE would be solely responsible for Nominating four of his fellow Housemates for Eviction. Each Housemate got only 60 seconds to convince him why they should be spared but these appeals seem to have fallen on deaf ears as he spared his closest friends. He Nominated TBoss and Debie-Rise calling them fake and superficial as well as Bassey (because what goes around comes around) and Bally (since he'd never been Nominated).
In keeping with the theme of doing things differently, Biggie only invited the Nominated Housemates to say their piece but first he gave Efe a chance to explain his reasoning. Efe started out his session by sharing that he felft the Ultimate Head of House title actually put a mark on his back and a target for the other Housemates. Biggie then tried to ascertain whether his Nomination choices were a sentimental or strategic play since he didn't Nominate Bisola despite siting her as his biggest threat. Efe seemed to dance around the issue not giving a clear answer but reiterated that he was keeping safe, the people that he'd want to see win if he didn't.
Bassey was up next and said he totally saw it coming that Efe would put him up. He also said that Efe liked "taking the easy way out" when a problem arise and when someone made a better suggestion he'd resist which is why they butt heads during his tenure as Head of House. That said, he did point out that while both of them were "very outspoken and stubborn", they still knew how to set their differences aside for the sake of "getting things done!"
TBoss began her session by pointing out how exhausted she was with being put up for Eviction "week after week". This was a sentiment echoed by Debie-Rise who felt that Efe shouldn't have Nominated people that had already been up last week. TBoss even went as far as saying the campaign was a waste of time as Efe's mind was already made up. She did reiterate however that she'd survived many times and was grateful to Nigeria for keeping her in the game. Debie-Rise also felt that Efe's decision was emotional and that he should been more fair.
Bally was the only one singing a different tune saying he had no hard feelings torward Efe as he'd gone with "the people that he was closest to" before declaring him one of his "closest friends in the House". Though it was his first time being up, Bally was very confident arguing that people had been watching him since the beginning and they were going to come through for him!
