Winning big with Indomie

Today’s Task had the Housemates not only doing one of their favourite things in the BBNaija House – cooking Indomie, but also smiling to the bank with 4 million Naira.

The Lockdown Geng have won 4 million Naira in the Indomie ‘Share your Style’ cooking Task. Now, if you are quite familiar with the Lockdown Geng, then you’d know one of their favourite things to do in the House is cook and number one on the list of meals they love to make is Indomie. So, today’s Task was a delight to them as they stepped in the kitchen to cook up a tasty delicious meal for the Indomie ‘Share your Style’ cooking Task. Not only did they whip up a meal, but they also got to present it adorned in their rich native attire while sharing a bit about their respective culture and their cooking recipes.

Let’s get cooking

After getting paired for the Task, each pair was asked to exchange their special ingredients with their partners and cook using the ingredients exchanged. Batch by batch they entered the kitchen to make their meals. Each batch made up of two pairs of Housemates had 30 minutes to make their meals and they hurried to make sure their meals were ready before the buzzer went off.

The Presentation

Dressed in their native attires, the Housemates made their way to the Arena batch by batch to present the dishes they made. First, they had to taste each other’s meals then share their culture and the recipe for the meal. They had 5 minutes to showcase their culture then score each other on how well they thought the meals represented their culture. Batch one consisting of Kiddwaya, Wathoni, Neo and Erica went first. With pride written boldly on their faces, the Housemates talked about their respective culture during their presentation. Batch two consisted of Lucy, Ozo, Tolanibaj and Trikytee.  Prince, Nengi, Dorathy and Laycon made up batch three while Vee and Brighto made up the last batch. On and on they all presented showcasing their meals with cultural flair.

The result

After a brief while, the Housemates were asked to make their way back into the Arena for the result of their presentations. The Housemates were first asked to read out the scores they gave their teammates during the presentation and why they gave those scores.

An Indomie Challenge

The Big Brother Lockdown Housemates were tasked with an Indomie Challenge to take the Housemates back to their roots through food.

Today was Indomie day for the Housemates as they were tasked with creating the best noodles they possibly can. The day was absolutely fun for them as they went about the task in high spirits dressed in their personalized Indomie threads.

Personalized gifts

The first order of the day was receiving personalized goodies from Idnomie which made the Housemates quite excited. The Housemates were required to get dressed in their personalised clothes and await further instructions; which came a short while later when they had to go to the Arena.

Ingredient Hunt

The Housemates gathered around the Arena for part one of their Task, the Ingredient Hunt. The team were given markers which they were to use to tick five ingredients that they would use to make the most delicious noodles. The Housemates were to climb into the big pot in front of them, full of balloons and find the ingredients they wanted to use. They founded what they could and were told they could get their personal pots with their special ingredients. They did this and were told to await further instructions.

Time to cook! 

After the Housemates took their naps, it was time for them to start cooking. Each Housemate was to cook their partners food with the special ingredient, present it to them and at the same time, present their own culture. They were to do this in the Arena, dressed to the nines in their traditional attire.

Stay tuned to see who will emerge victorious for cooking ht best food and representing their tribe the best.

Whipping up a meal for the Indomie Task

First, the Housemates had to find ingredients before they made their way back to the kitchen to whip up a meal for the Indomie ‘Share your Style’ cooking Task.

Reacting to the new reign

The announcement of the new Head of House and Deputy brought about different outcomes in the House and on Twitter.

After Biggie called the Housemates into the Lounge to announce the Head of House’s Deputy choice, some Housemates and viewers had a lot to talk about.

Eviction cripples the Housemates

While discussing with Tolanibaj on Sunday, Prince said, “If at any point I come up in the bottom four, I am going to leave.” Stating his reason why; he said he knew some Housemates didn’t like him and even the ones that liked him would still want to see him leave because they consider him competition in the House. Seeing how well he tried to win in the Head of House Challenge yesterday, Prince felt bad about his performance at the game. He tells Tolanibaj how badly he tried to win this week’s Challenge to enable him to escape the cold hands of possible Eviction and most importantly, dreads leaving his stay in the House in the hands of the Housemates. Tolanibaj gave him a listening ear and cheered him as they cuddled on the hammock.

A new duo on the throne

Although not new to the Head of House reign, Ozo and Nengi caused a buzz on Twitter as they were both announced as this week’s Lockdown Head of House and Deputy HoH. While some OzoNe shippers were excited to see their favourite couple bag a big win together this week, the Housemates seem to be comfortable with having Ozo lead them to a possible Wager win, for a second time. In addition, they both picked Vee and Neo as their visiting guests for the week.

We can’t wait to see how these two will rule the Lockdown House this week. Any predictions?

Fit for the House

The stakes are getting higher for the Big Brother Naija Lockdown Houmsemates, and it shows even in the morning workouts.

Getting snatched for action

Is it just us are did you notice that more of the ladies are wearing waistbands? Today Lucy, Dorathy, Wathoni, Vee and Nengi were all in their workout waistbands. There is no better time to get snatched than while you are in the Big Brother House. We can’t wait to see the results!

Get that run-in

Wathoni, Prince and Laycon kept the pace up running for a little while longer than the others around the arena. We all know that running is good for cardio and see the Housemates usually power up for their workouts in the morning with a jog to get the blood going.

The pushup club

Our usual twosome Kiddwaya and Brighto kept it at their usual pace with pushups in the corner. Today they were joined as they sometimes are by Trickytee. Kiddwaya seemed quite distracted this morning, however as Trikytee and Brighto continued with their upper body fitness.

Crunch for success

Neo led the bigger team in a morning mat routine today taking the role of drill sergeant every time we heard him say ‘Everybody up!’ The Housemates would stop after every set and he would call out those who stopped before the set was over. Many of the Housemates looked so tired that they just went as hard as they could before they stopped. Neo then get more of them involved, going around the floor to allow everyone to count through their workouts- which seemed to have worked for the Housemates as they planked for the rest of the morning. Ozo kept up with Neo while Erica and Tolanibaj lagged behind as they seemed tired than usual.

Lone ranger

Prince and Lucy stayed on the sidelines, participating in their own floor workouts for the morning. Prince broke a sweat until the Housemates had to leave the Arena and go back inside. Lucy broke early to go and help Dorathy with a workout move that she had been trying for a while, leaving Dorathy tired and therefore done with her workout with 15 minutes to spare. The ladies then settled on the bench, talking about the Wager and wondering whether they would get props today so they could prepare properly.

Morning advice

‘That’s why there is a time. Time stops, you don’t stop.’ We heard Laycon advising Wathoni. She seems preoccupied this morning with who is fake in the House and who is not. Wathoni showed concern that while they are in the House, they would think certain people are their friends, and once they got outside they would see receipts that people were in fact not their friends. Laycon added that the Housemates came here to grow and people were watching them grow; watching their mistakes and their moves. Laycon was adamant that their time in the House would add value to their stays.

The Housemates showed up today- whether to exercise their minds, their friendships or their bodies; they showed out. There are still a few weeks to go as our Housemates try to keep their heads in the Game, and we watch to see what that means.
