Day 18: Against All Odds
Khloe moves against the current and against all odds, manages to bag the HoH title.
Khloe, probably the most controversial of Housemates thanks to her loud and free Khloe aura, has had more drama during her stay in the House than the other Housemates put together and running over; so it’s no surprise that the others low key feel indifferent about her newly acquired robes or reign.
The Head of House Challenge came with its own boxed lump of controversy. Firstly, it was probably meant to be a comeback for some of the Housemates and evidence of superiority for the former HoH pair Cebi (Cee-C, Tobi) but it proves to be a stepping stone for ‘we’re cool now, I dislike you later’ pair K_square. The controversy has unfortunately for them cracked their strategic wall and undermined their individualities; K.Brule’s tenderness and Khloe’s strong will and identity. However, when Khloe 'holed' the ball and had her 'chances' account credited while there were game threatening 'debits' in those of Bambam, who was certain that they'd lift the trophy, and Ifu Ennada who just wanted to win it for her team; there was a visible clenching of muscles with the other Housemates. Either way, the throne has been earned, against all odds.
It’s safe to say that Khloe had more of a point to prove than anybody else in the House and she hinted that when shaking her life away in order to qualify for the HoH challenge. Although she wasn’t the only one that shook for victory, she’s definitely the one that threw for the reigns and bagged the glory, delivering a handless slap in the face of her adversary.
What May Happen
Even from a distant, a man suffering with problematic senses would have been able to smell the other Housemates’ discomfort. This further proves just how much the dynamics are to change. From being the black sheep of the House to being the herder, there are bound to be clashes that could potentially undermine Khloe’s authority, forcing her to possibly brawl out instead of holding out; especially because the throne brought immunity with it. Now that the Housemates are aware of the realness of the Nominations and consequent Evictions, the notion of immunity is now more important than it ever was and the fact that it rests in K_squared’s hands, Housemates go vex, if not already.
Right after the victory, Khloe blurted "let me save my friends' out so loud, fourth floor inhabitants heard her and just between us, that stunt was deliberate and directed at her haters; those that keep calling her nice ‘but’. Well, she's done just that. During one of their debaucheries, she straight up told Leo that she was into him and didn’t care if he had a girl. Although jokingly so, she proved just how serious she was when she saved pair Leolex (Leo, Alex).
Her reign has come with it's fair share of storms and quakes but, being the the carrier of balls of steel that she is, Khloe strutted through her and Alex's war, Dee-One's deliberate disresepct and Teddy A's tries at the throne. If the train was acceleration a thousand miles an hour, it's now flying at a million a second. How the next upcoming Evictions will unfold rests in the palms of time.
Angelifu, Bamteddy, Cebi, Loto, Mina, Pritto, Rineeka and Van-Dee are up for possible Eviction this week. Vote for your favourite pair here or via SMS. Voting closes on Thursday 15 February at 21:00 WAT.
