NAIROBI, Kenya, Sep 28 – Phil from Uganda was voted for least by BBA lovers and Jen from Mozambique wanted out, so they were the third group to leave the house on Sunday.
Jen made a voluntary exit from the series due to personal reasons. She said her goodbyes and met host IK on the way out, where her father was waiting for her.
HOH Kevin revealed to shocked housemates that he had replaced Edward with Phil during the nominations on Monday, prompting a smile from Edward, as Phil trudged off to pack his bags.
Phil looked bemused as he headed out the double doors, Kevin looked haunted as he sat motionless on the couch, while Yacob pondered the effects of Phil’s departure in silence.
IK didn’t waste any time in asking Phil about his time spent with Liz over the last few days.
“We’re cool – we’re just hanging out,” was his response.
When asked if there was anyone in the house he had been particularly close to, he told IK that there were two people – Elizabeth and Liz.
IK also asked him about his statement that he considered Big Brother to be a ‘non-lethal threat’.
“I meant that I didn’t think that Big Brother could get me here so soon,” he said with a shrug.
He told IK that he didn’t consider his eviction a big shock as he had had the sense the entire week that Kevin had put him up for eviction.
“There was no beef – he was just playing the game,” said Phil.
Before he left the stage for good, IK and Phil appeared on the screens inside the house and told the housemates about the new game element which Big Brother has introduced – the ‘Molotov Cocktail’.
All evicted housemates have the opportunity to ‘throw’ a different cocktail at another housemate inside the house as their parting shot each week.
There will be 20 ‘cocktails’ to choose from, which range from cleaning bathrooms to making coffee.
This week’s Molotov Cocktail read: “All the clothes and personal belongings of one housemate must be packed in a suitcase and removed from the House for one whole week.”
IK asked Phil: "Who do you want to throw the Molotov Cocktail at?" Phil declared that he had no doubt in his mind and named Kevin as the recipient.
Soon after that, Big Brother asked Kevin to pack all his clothes, including those he was wearing, and deliver his suitcase to the store room. It seems Kevin is going to spend a week in the house in a towel!
The show was as action-packed as usual, kicking off with a stunning ballroom routine from the Mambo Kings before IK introduced Namibia’s best-selling Kwaito star Gazza for the first of two rocking performances. Viewers were then reminded of the highlights of the past week in the house, including the revelation of the Twin Twist, the meeting of the men and women for the first time, discussions about alliances, nominations, the first Head of House election, the burgeoning romance in the house and the housemates’ fantastic Thriller video task.
Phil received the fewest votes from 11 countries (Botswana, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Nigeria, South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Rest of Africa) while Erastus received the fewest votes from 4 – (Angola, Ethiopia, Tanzania and Uganda).
