The Post-Nomination Clash
The Nomination aftermath served us heated moments in the Pepper Dem House. Here’s all the drama that went down.
Following Elozonam’s choice to Save Venita and Replace her with Frodd, a lot of feelings were exposed regarding the situation surrounding it. Meanwhile, Frodd aired his hurt to Esther, as he vouched to become next week’s Veto Power Holder just to seek his revenge on Elozonam.
First, we had Venita show her appreciation to Elozonam in the Dressing Room. Afterwards, Elozonam revealed the reason for his decision to Venita. According to him, “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 House and neither has Venita. For this reason, he had to Save Venita to keep her in the House. Although it wasn’t quite revealed why he chose Frodd to replace Venita, this sole decision has raised eyebrows amongst other Housemates.
Still on the subject of betrayal, Diane who seemed upset about Elozonam’s verdict, did not fail to express herself to Esther where she said she saw it coming that Elozonam wouldn’t Save her and in her defence, she’s just glad she didn’t have anything intimate with him during the truth and dare sessions.
To air how she truly felt, she had a conversation on the subject matter with Elozonam himself.
“I saw it coming that you weren’t going to Save me,” she told him while they were in the Garden. “What’s the difference between my action and the one you made last week?” he replied.
After making her see things from his own perspective together with her reassurance that she wasn’t hurt about the situation, they ended the night on Elozonam’s bed where they held hands for a while before Diane tucked him to bed. Will Elozonam’s decision drive a wedge between the two or can they move past it? We can’t wait to find out.
The Third Party
It wasn’t surprising seeing Venita talk about Khafi gossiping about her. She mentioned it to Ike, Mercy, Elozonam and wait for it…Gedoni himself. Seeing that the two have become close since Sunday, Venita has made it a point of duty to remind Gedoni that she can have him if she wanted to – all which was met with Gedoni’s silence and affirming remarks.
In her conversation with Ike, Venita told him that she cannot be friends with Khafi because she finds her fake. While Ike excused himself from this conversation, Gedoni listened to all that Venita had to say. A few seconds later, Khafi walked into the Garden to give Gedoni some food and this immediately birthed a silent Venita.

Although not sure how the Khadoni ship seems to be taking all the heat, we can’t wait to see how things turn out between the pair this week. Especially with his recent closeness with Venita.

Mike’s Cheers Upset Tacha
Tacha flared up at Mike for cheering her on during the workout session this morning. Surprisingly, the matter later became Esther’s.
In the Arena this morning, Tacha flared up at Mike for cheering her on after being punished by the instructor. However little the issue appeared, it attracted reactions from other concerned Housemates.
Trust instructor Obinna to come through with rigorous exercise that will enable Housemates to burn out the fats their bodies have begun to attract as a result of their excessive eating habit. They did not expect the morning workout to be so tough. So when he said that he would punish the last person to get up from the exercise, they did not believe it. Being that last person, Tacha was asked to do some more exercise. Mike felt he needed to encourage her and started cheering her on. Little did we expect this to turn into a fight. Enraged and feeling like Mike was making fun of her, Tacha told him to stop it, that she didn’t need his encouragement.
More To It
When we had thought that it would end there, Tacha was seen in the lounge telling Mike, “keep your stupid cheering up to yourself and other persons.” Mike, on the other hand, couldn’t understand why on earth anyone would find cheering unacceptable. Afterwards, he was in the garden explaining to Frodd and Esther that he had not crossed his boundary with his action.
On her own part, Esther felt that Mike should have minded his business. She said, “You know for sure that she does not like it. You can’t say you don’t know.” But for Mike, that someone would reject some encouragement done out of love was unimaginable. He replied Esther saying, “I am encouraging her, the workout is hard.” Angry at Mike’s remark, Esther said that despite knowing that Tacha did not like being cheered, he went ahead. “This conversation is pointless,” she concluded and walked away. Even Seyi felt that Mike went too far for replying Esther that he didn’t care. The matter did not end there, Omashola had his own opinion when he told Ike and Elozonam that, “this is the first tim in my 39 years of age, seeing cheering being offensive.” What was even more surprising was the conversation that ensued between Esther and Mike later in the bedroom. Mike wondered why Esther was defending her, a statement which got her irritated further. She said that Mike was used to doing that to others. “Respect her decision. It’s that simple,” she told him.
Though the issue was between Tacha and Mike, Esther seemed to have got a perfect time to express her own opinion about the resident peacemaker. Will it stop here or will Mike mind his business going forward?
