An Exquisite Pure Bliss Dinner
Just like they promised, Pure Bliss treated the Pepper Dem Gang to a five-star dinner.
It was an exquisite dinner affair as the Pepper Dem Gang treated themselves to choice Nigerian and foreign delicacies, courtesy of Pure Bliss. The dinner was to mark their challenge win.
Good thing the Arena opened up when it did cause Khafi had started knocking the door in anticipation of the dinner she was promised. Well. She wasn’t disappointed as the doors opened not too long after and she and the rest of the Pepper Dem Gang walked into a tastefully decorated Arena with a table stacked with the tastiest of delicacies that had not just the Housemates mouths watering but yours too.

When it comes to the Pepper Dem Gang, whenever there’s food, there will be bandits. Just as Biggie asked the Housemates to head back in, the food bandits went on a rampage. From stuffing food into paper bags to taking extra plates, The Pepper Dem Gang showed us the other side of them we last saw during a food fest. You guys also spotted some of the food bandits too.

Battle Over Bottles
In their usual manner, the Pepper Dem Gang had an altercation over the bottles of alcohol. Trouble began when Housemates couldn’t decide on a sharing formula which led to a mild drama about who should take what and who shouldn’t. Some wanted a particular brand while some didn’t. For Housemates who just had a great dinner, one would think the rest of the night would continue in the spirit of love and light. Boy, were we wrong.

The Pursuit Of Happiness
“Happiness is your birthright,” Hamisha Daryani Ahuja.
Just before their Wager Task, the Pepper Dem Gang were treated to a self-pampering and exciting session with renowned motivational speaker, Hamisha Daryani Ahuja.
Did you know that our emotional enjoyment, or what we can call happiness, is simply part of human nature? Today, the Housemates had a refreshing session; from the meditation to the words of affirmation to one another, it was sure uplifting. We bet you felt it too.
Stop Waiting For Friday!
In the bid to explain to the Housemates how important it is to find happiness, Hamisha revealed that once in a while, it’s okay to take a moment in the pursuit of happiness and just be genuinely happy.
“Once you put a tag to what makes you happy, you get satisfied for a minute after achieving it and the pursuit for another means of happiness begins again,” she said to the Housemates. We couldn’t agree less.
To begin this session, all the Housemates admitted to finding happiness in different things. To Ike, he is in Africa to find his source of happiness while Cindy said seeing her family happy, makes her genuinely happy.
To further buttress her point on staying happy, Hamisha told the Pepper Dem Gang that you will have to pay closer attention to the end goal of emotion and not jump after the first idea the mind offers as a means to get happiness. That leaves us with one question for you, what makes you happy?
Meditation and Laughter
Everything is a cruise for the Pepper Dem Gang, so it was no surprise seeing them smile and giggle when the candles were lit and eyes were shut for the meditation session.
Even the reflection music couldn’t stop Mercy and Mike from cruising all through the 5 minutes of meditation.
Words Of Affirmation
“You’re determined”, “You’re beautiful and kind” … These are the words we heard from the Pepper Dem Gang as they moved on to this session. For this setting, the Housemates were asked to move around and whisper what they find inspiring about one another.
Who else looked forward to hearing what Seyi had to say to Tacha and vice versa? If you bribe us, we’ll tell you.
Whatever it was that was whispered, caused a huge smile on Tacha’s face. Do we smell reconciliation in the air?
A completely different approach to pursuing happiness is creating happiness from whatever situation we find ourselves in. Thank you for the inspiring words Hamisha Daryani Ahuja, the House will forever remember your soothing presence.
Here’s What Made The Pepper Dem Gang Cry And Cringe
What a Season it has been! Let’s take a trip down short-term memory lane and revisit the Pepper Dem Gang’s low moments in the House.
From the high points like when Frodd got a kiss from the love of his life to the low points when she was Evicted, the Housemates have been through so many ups and downs in Biggie’s House. Here’s a look back at the saddest and most talked about moments the Pepper Dem Housemates have been through in the House.
A Betrayed Seyi
Love betrayal is the worst thing that can happen to anyone. Wrong! Have you ever felt betrayed by people you sacrificed yourself for? Well, let Seyi tell you.
Remember when he refused to use his Veto Power and decided to be the sacrificial lamb instead? Well, after being fake Evicted, the resident sugar daddy saw beneath the fake hugs and sad looks from the Housemates. How did they not even miss him the second he walked through those doors? This thought left Seyi down for days and even upon his arrival back into the House, he kept to himself for a while. “They’ll see a different Seyi this time,” he told Tacha while he expressed his hurt.
A Teary Mercy
How do you handle hard conversations without crying?
According to Mercy, sometimes you have feelings and when they come up, you’re allowed to feel them…
Mercy has certainly come a long way in the House; from the Coins robbery to her gangsta relationship with Ike, we can’t deny that she’s her own boss. Imagine our surprise when she broke down in the Diary Room.
Like others who have expressed their emotions when hit by low times or memories, Mercy did not fail to let tears out as she talked about her mother’s sacrifices for her. Don’t worry Mercy, mama must be so proud of you.
Another Strike For Ike
The fear of one Strike is the beginning of wisdom. What happens when you get two Strikes from Biggie?
Ike did not only have a gloomy face after Big Brother announced his second Strike, but his face was also blue all through the week of the announcement. In fact, the second Strike has birthed a new Ike in the Pepper Dem House and one can’t help but wonder where the gangsta Ike went to.
Cindy’s Cold Entrance
Nothing hurts more than getting excited to meet people and getting a cold reception from them. Ask Cindy.
We can’t easily forget how elated she was when she got into the House as the last addition to the Pepper Dem Gang. Unfortunately, the Housemates were not having it as they had gotten enough of Biggie’s dose of twists. With five new Housemates being added to the game, fighting for the same prize, who would blame them?
Amidst the unaccommodating faces in the Pepper Dem mix, Khafi was the only one cheerful enough to receive Cindy and we didn’t miss how disappointed and worried she looked.
Well, hey! She’s grown to be loved in the House and we’re so here for this.
Elozonam’s VPH Disloyalty
Do unto others what you want them to do to you. You’re familiar with this saying, right? Well, Elozonam practised something similar to this and he did unto a Housemate what she did to him.
In other news, Diane didn’t use her VPH title to Save Elozonam when she had the opportunity to and in return of her favour, he did same. By Saving Venita while Diane needed saving, Elozonam fell into Diane’s betrayal web.
“…But she didn’t Save him too, tit for tat,” you would say but for some reason, Elozonam was enveloped with guilt after he made his VPH decision. While we saw it as an eye for an eye, he saw it as a disloyal move to his resident love interest and spent the night in a miserable mood.
Tacha’s Strike Grief
Her first Strike might not have moved her that much but the moment Biggie announced her second Strike, we could see her face drop underneath those sunglasses.
For the first time in the House, Tacha openly voiced out how hurt and scared she was about her punishment from Biggie. She further went to apologize to Big Brother for disregarding the House rules.
Omashola’s Stolen Coins
We got screams, curses, tears and more screams from Omashola when his Coins were stolen by (you know who).
The resident Warri blood did not fail to let the other Housemates know that he’s not to be played with, in the House. “I no dey okay o,” he kept shouting as he paced around angrily.
Of course, asides crying over his ex, this is the lowest we’ve seen Omashola in the House.
Khafi’s Lost Love
For her to have likened the situation to losing a lover to death, we reckon Khafi had a hard time with Gedoni’s Eviction from the House.
Oh, the waterworks and the sniffing of her lover’s hat was all we got from Khafi in the first two days after the gloomy exit.
Gracefully, her high spirits bounced her back into the happy Khafi we all know. Since then, the resident detective has been celebrating wins in the House. Talk about rebirth!
Frodd’s Love Gloom
Again, another Evicted lover brought about tears in Biggie’s House.
“Esther, you’ve been Evicted from the BB Naija House.” Undeniably, this was one of Frodd’s saddest moments, well asides the time he had a hard time getting Esther’s love.
Even though he was also at risk of getting Evicted that night too, Frodd seemed like he could care less about anything else around him.
“They should get ready to see a new Frodd,” he said to Ebuka after Esther’s Eviction and upon finding out that the Housemates had a problem with his attitude.
Imagine the joy when Esther willed all her Coins to him. Love is still in the air, perhaps?
Diane’s Task Loss
Asides the time Sir Dee and Tuoyo left the House, we can’t easily forget how low-spirited Diane was when her team lost the Dano Arla Task.
Understandably, she was expecting a big win in this challenge as she keeps telling everyone about her great cooking skills. Imagine the unhappiness that clouded her face when she wasn’t announced as the winner of the Task.
To express her sadness, she spent the night in the Garden talking about how hurt she was about her loss. Better luck next time, Diane!
Mike Without The Cruise
What’s the Pepper Dem House without cruise? Well, the president of the cruise association was seen without the cruise juice when team Cruisetopia lost their Wager Task.
For that moment, the House felt dull and even our screens felt it. Trust the cruise lord to come out of the dull mood within a matter of minutes and he did not fail us on that.
Turns out like everyone else, the Pepper Dem Gang have also experienced low times in the House. What we love about them is how fast they get out of those moments and get up to high spirits as they continue the game.
A Legendary Win
With only one point ahead of team Enigma, team Legends won the Wager Task presentation.
Coming at a time some of the Housemates are already bargaining for Bet9ja Coins, tonight’s Wager Task was fiercely contested. From a hilarious drama presentation to an interesting monologue, the Pepper Dem Gang pulled this off really well. And we were left entertained.
With their presentation centring on the four elements of nature, the Housemates gave us a mini-drama that left us gasping for more. Using a journey of a boy into self-discovery as their plot, the team pulled off a presentation filled with lessons to learn. Though they got carried away and finished in 26 minutes instead of the allotted 20 minutes, it was indeed entertaining.
For this team, it was comedy galore. Mimicking the certain Housemates and reliving some past event in the House, Omashola, Khafi, Mercy and Frodd cracked our ribs so much we nearly gasped for breath. From Frodd’s mimic of Mike, to Khafi’s acting as Mercy and Omashola’s Ike act, team Legends lit up the stage tonight so much that even their fellow Housemates couldn’t stop laughing. They completed their own Task in 21 minutes.
Based on the criteria of creativity, message, inclusiveness and professionalism, team Enigma got 10 points while team Legends scored 11. With just one point ahead, team Legends were declared the winner of the challenge. Great job guys! As for the prize, wait a second, Biggie got a twist.
Previously, each member of the winning team always went away with 20 Bet9ja Coins. But this time Biggie was generous as 50 Bet9ja Coins were given to each member of team Legends. But no, the Coins won’t come from Biggie this time. It has to be financed by the losing team, Enigma.
As team Legends get the opportunity to shop for their Wager on Sunday, we imagine how team Enigma will feel knowing that not only have they lost their Wager, they are 50 Bet9ja Coins short. Well, what can we say? It is what it is.
