Erastus & Phil need your votes!

Uganda’s Phil and Nambia’s Erastus are up from eviction from M-Net’s BIG BROTHER REVOLUTION this week after an intense nomination process (Monday 21 September, 20:00 CAT) – the first the men and women have shared. Once the nomination votes were tallied, it seemed as though Sunday night’s unveiling of the Twin Twist to the male housemates had put Edward and Erastus in the firing line as they garnered the most votes – 13 and 7 respectively.

Kevin, as Head of House, had the ability to influence the nominations once completed and after an afternoon spent in thought, told Big Brother that he had decided to replace Edward with Phil. Nobody in the house except Kevin knows this, of course, so Edward and Erastus will spend the next week pondering their fate, before Big Brother reveals on Sunday that Phil is up for eviction in Edward’s place.

The men’s nominations ran along alliance lines, with Yacob’s nomination session seemingly indicating that the “Smokers’ Alliance” want Jeremy and Quinn out of the way. The non-smokers seem to have decided on Phil and Edward, judging from Jeremy, Leonel and Kevin’s nominations. The women mostly nominated Edward and Erastus because, as Paloma and Liz indicated, they are apparently disrespectful towards women. 

Kristal nominated Emma and Leonel, because Leonel was not bonding with the female housemates and because Emma’s attitude seems to have soured in the last couple of days. Rene didn’t want to nominate her countrymen Edward and Erastus, so she pulled Kristal aside for advice. After their discussion, she ended up putting Leonel’s name forward for the same reason Kristal gave, and Jennifer’s because her friendship with Liz has alienated her from the rest of the women.

When Big Brother announced that Edward and Erastus were up for eviction, the news was met with disbelief and nervous laughter as some Housemates wondered if Big Brother was still playing a game on them. One of the Housemates asked the twins “Are you in on this?”
The announcement made Jeremy realise how much power the female housemates have. Sitting with a shocked Quinn, he starts doing the maths and adds up that Erastus and Edward were mostly nominated by the women. Jeremy tells Quinn that if they are not careful, the girls are going to get rid of all of them. Yacob shared a similar sentiment earlier that the women will “chew them up and spit them out”.
