Nothing beats team effort when it comes to undertaking tasks and the same principle applies to cook breakfast in the house.
Not only do the Housemates turn to 5-star restaurant chefs when it’s time to making breakfasts, but they have also made it a habit to do it in groups or pairs. The housemates gathered in the kitchen after their morning workout session and cleanup duty, cooking up a storm. Each group or pair next to each other beaming with smiles as they cooked and waited for their meals to be ready.
The mushy pair
Ozo and Nengi painted an adorable picture as they paired up to make breakfast this morning. Each offering a hand as they made their breakfast of fried plantain and eggs. They may not have fully defined what they both have going, but they sure make interesting breakfast buddies.
The crew that cooks together
It’s always a thrill when friends come together to turn up at the stove and that’s what Brighto, Wathoni and Trikytee did as they made their breakfast with occasional jibes at each other making it look like a scene from a fun cooking show.
We have beef
No, beef wasn’t what Lucy had for breakfast but a bone of contention with her breakfast buddy. Lucy who is fast bonding with Praise was a bit hurt that he went ahead to make his breakfast without making for her and she made him know. “I woke up to cut plantain for me, you and Dora only to find out you had made food for yourself alone, “ she said, letting Praise know how she had full intent to make his breakfast but was rather shocked to find out he had gone ahead to make his. Praise explained it wasn’t that way and said his breakfast was courtesy Wathoni who helped him with frying his plantains.
First, we thought it was games night, but apparently, nothing bonds the housemate better than time spent making food. There’s a sense of harmony and positive vibes. Food really does gladden the heart.
‘Brighto said he loves me,’ Dorathy
Who else didn’t see this coming? Let’s look into what seems like a possible ship between Dorathy and Brighto in the Lockdown House.
Dorathy and Lucy served some hot tea in Biggie’s Garden this morning; from Brighto’s love advances to Ozo and Nengi’s situationship, they gave us premium lockdown gist as e dey hot.
Our resident counsellor is in love?
Dorathy opened the gist tap by telling Lucy what transpired at the Saturday Night Party with Brighto. Remember when Ebuka scattered all the tables on Sunday, well Brighto was asked on his opinion about the Dorathy, Ozo and Nengi entanglement, to which he affirmed that it was a triangle and also claimed that Dorathy has some feelings for Ozo. Of course, Dorathy was triggered by his response, especially seeing that she has tried to make it clear that she has no feelings for Ozo, outside of casual friendship.
While we kept wondering why Brighto felt the need to apologize to Dorathy for stating his opinion to Ebuka, Dorathy confirmed the reason in her conversation with Lucy. According to her, she and Brighto had a moment at the party where she told him, “I feel like kissing you.” To which Brighto replied asking where that was coming from and she said she doesn’t know.
On Sunday when Brighto approached Dorathy to apologize, he brought up this moment that happened between them on Saturday saying, “I didn’t think you were serious, I just thought you were under the influence of alcohol.”
Lucy’s reaction was the expression we all had when we heard Dorathy spill the tea. Dorathy then defended herself by saying she only just felt like kissing Brighto but there are no feelings attached. Dorathy then went ahead with this gist and it got hotter.
“He told me he told Biggie in the Diary Room that he is in love with me but I don’t know if it’s because I brought up the kiss or he actually meant it,” Dorathy continued. She went ahead to tell Lucy that she and Brighto both agreed that they were not all about that eating together, holding hands PDAs that the Lockdown couples often do. After, she spilled some more tea on what happened last night. While on her way to take a bath, Brighto asked if he could join and she played along by agreeing.
Speaking of last night, Dorathy also revealed that she saw Wathoni leaving their room to go to Brighto’s and at that moment, she knew that she wasn’t up for no man drama. As if almost realizing something, she said, “Brighto is trying to play a game and I’m just watching.”
On to the next gist…
The hottest fight yet
Still, on the hammock (which lowkey appears to be the gist hub for the Lockdown Housemates), Lucy brought up the fight that happened the second after the Live Eviction Show and kept us with our mouths open all through.
In this conversation, Lucy maintained her point on not referring to Nengi while she was soliloquizing in the bathroom, but Nengi still approached her and brought up the fight. She went ahead to say she apologized to Nengi but Nengi was still “carrying face for her”. She then told Dorathy that she wasn’t even angry at Nengi initially, but at Ozo for coming to calm her down when in fact, the fight didn’t originate from her.
The gist then leaned towards the Ozo/Dorathy/Nengi triangle and Lucy said that Dorathy should remove herself from the equation. She said this was what caused the fight between herself and Lucy until it became more personal and she said she wondered why Nengi would think she didn’t dare to say anything to her face. “Her new target was Evicted on Sunday and she was looking for the next move. I only feel bad for Prince because he was falling and he’s my friend,” she said.
“I just think she brought up that fight after I was done shouting, but she picked you as a target because she was trying to get at me but couldn’t talk to me directly,” Dorathy said to Lucy. “Ozo has already said he’s now physically attracted to her though,” she continued. Lucy replied saying it’s not that she’s upset that many guys are following her, but she just isn’t comfortable with the way Nengi was playing Ozo and the others in the House. “You can still be friends with someone and not be cosy with the person, but if you claim you’re just friends but you’re cuddling and being cosy, then you’re leading the person on,” she exclaimed.
Seeing that Dorathy didn’t entertain Lucy’s gist on Nengi and Ozo, we wonder if the fight between Lucy and Nengi was as a result of the built-up tension between the two or there’s a hidden beef which will still brew more fights in the house, as long as the triangle is mentioned.
Dorathy and Lucy briefly talked about the new Head of House and her Deputy. While Dorathy called it a cruise regime, Lucy replied saying, “this one na cruise to losing Wager regime o.” They both then talked about why it was taking the resident leaders a long time to call the House to order for Wager rehearsals.
Is it safe to say that where Dorathy and Lucy are gathered, Lockdown revelations and piping hot tea will be served?
More drama in Biggie’s House
After the Head of House Games were done, the game of survival continued.
There is never a dull day inside the Big Brother Naija House, and last night was an especially interesting evening.
After securing a fantastic Head of House win, Erica was left with a difficult decision as to who she would select as her Deputy. In the break between the end of the game and the Diary Session where she would have to reveal her choice, she was seen agonising over the choice. Erica even took time to consult with one her possible choices, Laycon, about the difficult decision.
When Biggie summoned her to the Diary Room to hear her selection, Erica wasted no time in selecting Kiddwaya as her Deputy and choosing Laycon as a replacement, should Kiddwaya decline. Kiddwaya didn’t decline the honour of becoming her Deputy and struggled to hide his joy when Biggie announced it. It was especially sweet, after having been fined their entire Betway Wallet at the beginning of the game for whispering during the Live Show.
Once again Brighto managed to get a truth that a Housemate had been keeping to themselves. This time around it was Dortahy and she shared her previous experience with triangles and how she feels about them now. If getting the truth quickly ever needed a spokesperson, Brighto would be a perfect choice.
The Housemates also got a chance to practice their non-verbal communication when playing a game of charades. It was surprising to see how in tune they have become, as all the questions were answered in quick succession. It seems as if the Housemates are getting to know each other well.
The surprise of the evening was Kaisha who had a thrilling conversation with herself on the bed outside. Of all the interactions she has enjoyed in Biggie’s House, the one with herself seems to be the one she enjoys the most.
The only thing guaranteed in the Big Brother Naija House is that each day will be more interesting than the day before. Don’t miss a single one if you want to stay updated on all things Big Brother Naija Lockdown.
The Smooth Photo Challenge
The Housemates showed us what they got as they served looks for the Guinness Smooth Photo Challenge.
It was all about style, elegance and model-like poses as the Housemates pulled out all the stops to deliver a stunning photoshoot for the Guinness Smooth Photo Challenge. The Task required that they execute a creative photoshoot with a stylish theme.
The sorting box
To get it started, the Housemates had to first divide themselves into two different groups called Team Hops and Team Barley by picking cards from the box.
Here are the teams they fell in.
Team Hops: Praise, Dorathy, Ozo, Neo, Wathoni, Tolanibaj, Prince, and Nengi.
Team Barley: Lucy, Erica, Kiddwaya, Brighto, Trikytee, Vee, Laycon, and Kaisha.
Bumpy start for Barley
Although the Challenge was called Smooth, Team Barley didn’t exactly start off on a smooth note as Lucy complained about not being informed before the brief for the Task was read. She had earlier gone to the restroom only to step out to find out that a Brief had been read and she missed out on it. Something she didn’t take kindly to it. To ease the situation, Erica personally read the Brief to her, but that didn’t do much as it still almost turned into a major argument between Lucy and Kiddwaya as she brought it up again. That soon ended and they focused on the vintage style they were going with for the photoshoot.
Dorathy takes charge
Team Hops had Dorathy in charge and she was quick to show why Ozo made her his Deputy HoH. She wasn’t alone, she had Tolanibaj assisting her. Taking the bull by the horns, she immediately outlined the roles for each teammate. It wasn’t long after they settled for a blend of styles for the photoshoot.
Having picked out their theme for the creative shoot, off they went to the Arena to serve looks in a bid to win the Smooth Photo Challenge. Both Teams took turns giving their very best and striking the meanest poses for the photoshoot. From fashion magazines cover-worthy poses to runway poses, the Housemates did their thing and made serving fierce looks look like light work.
This was just the first round of the Guinness Challenge for the day, they still had more to go to eventually decide who the winner was. For this Smooth Photo Challenge though, we were very impressed with the effort they put up. May the best team win.
