June 6, 2011 – Big Brother kicked out two contestants this week, greatly reducing the East African firepower in the contest.
Ernest (Uganda) and Bhoke (Tanzania), affectionately known as Ebhok, were both evicted after not getting nearly enough votes from Africa to keep them in House.
Kenya voted to save Ernest and so did Uganda and Zimbabwe. Bhoke only got two votes (Tanzania and Zambia), while Bostwana’s Miss P got a massive ten country votes: Angola, Botswana, Ethiopia, Ghana, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, South Africa and the Rest of Africa.
The emotional Ebhok became an item after a steamy scene in the Jacuzzi, after a Saturday night party. They managed to complete the act on Saturday night, in the knowledge that at least one of them would leave the house on Sunday.
Though Bhoke ignored the previous night’s action, fans are curious as to whether the romance that has lasted close to four weeks will survive the harsh outside environment.
Meanwhile, in a somewhat forced alliance, nondescript Danny (Ethiopia) has vowed his undying loyalty to South African bad-boy Luclay.
Danny saved Luclay from possible eviction last week, replacing him with Miss P, who was furious when she got wind of the news. She kept her thoughts to herself on the matter though.
Kenyan Nic bore the brunt of Ernest’s hostilities though, after he was shown to have a hand in nominating the Ugandan.
As punishment, Nic is to wave a pom-pom and dance like a cheerleader, each time Katy Perry sings Fireworks.
The spotlight will be on Luclay this week as he has demanded to be taken to the Heads House, threatening to leave the show if he isn’t. Is he blowing hot air? And how well will the Kenyans fair this week after a tumultuous seven days last week?
