A big blow has been dealt to Angola Sunday night as both of the housemates in Big Brother, The Chase from the Southern African country were sent home. Biguesas and Neyll became the third pair to be evicted from the reality show after receiving the fewest viewer votes from the continent.
The pair’s eviction was met with a mix of emotions from their fellow Housemates. First to receive the news of his fate in the house was Biguesas, who took it all in his stride as he smiled and had nothing but love for his fellow housemates as he made his grand exit from the Diamond house.
Only a few minutes after learning that he had his head thrown under the eviction guillotine by Head of House in the Rubies house Selly in order to save Oneal; Neyll then got word from live show’s presenter IK that his journey on the game had come to an end. The news of Neyll’s exit was met with shock from the fellow housemates and the tears flowed in both houses.
Clearly the quiet gentleman had a lasting impression on his fellow Housemates in both houses. The evictions follow the Heads of House having to reveal their ‘save and replace’ decisions. Diamond Head of House Melvin revealed he had saved Bolt and replaced him with Annabel.
Ruby Head of House Selly, found it easier to reveal her decision this week, telling the housemates that she’d saved Oneal and replaced him with Neyll. Oneal’s eyes couldn’t have been wider when he heard the news.
After Monday’s nominations, Diamonds Annabel (Kenya) and Biguesas (Angola) and Ruby housemates Pokello (Zimbabwe), Neyll (Angola) and Natasha (Malawi) were left fighting it out for Africa’s votes this week. After the SizweNtsalubaGobodo auditor had delivered the verified voting results, IK got down to business. The first name he mentioned was Pokello’s – but only to tell her she was safe. Biguesas wasn’t so lucky and had to say his goodbyes. Neyll was the next housemate to be evicted, leaving tears in his wake as his housemates consoled each other.
Out on stage, Biguesas told IK that switching between houses had made it difficult for him to open up, leading to the perception that he was quiet. He had no regrets about quitting his job to enter Big Brother: The Chase and that he’d had no idea that Natasha had wanted to spend time with him in the Rendezvous Room so badly.
