The Big Brother StarGame VIP housemates got a dose of reality on Monday 21 May, after 14 days in the Upville house, as they had their first nomination session of the show. When the dust had settled, Mampi, DKB and former Downville housemate Maneta found themselves up for eviction this week.
DKB used his power as Head of House to save himself and put Lady May up for eviction in his place. That means viewers must vote to keep one of Mampi (Zambia), Maneta (Zimbabwe) and Lady May (Namibia) in the house this week.
When Big Brother revealed the results of the nomination process on Monday night at 8pm CAT (DStv Channel 198), the housemates sat in stunned silence for a moment as reality set in. Big Brother had to call DKB to the Diary Room a number of times to make his “Save and Replace’ decision. After pondering his choice, DKB revealed that he would be saving himself and putting Lady May up for eviction in his place.
Earlier in the day, Mampi had received the most nominations from her Upville housemates, picking up six – everyone else except Maneta, nominated her. Maneta and DKB picked up three nominations each, putting them in the eviction firing line.
The nominations were as follows: Mampi (6); DKB (3); Maneta (3); Goldie (2); Lady May (1); Prezzo (1) while Barbz and Roki didn’t pick up any nominations.
Viewers can now vote to keep their favourite contestants in the Big Brother Upville house. Voting opened immediately after Monday night’s nomination show at 8.30pm CAT and closes at 6am CAT on Sunday morning.
There are three ways to vote in Big Brother StarGame – via web, SMS or WAP – and voters can win prizes in the process, including DStv PVR’s, DStv Walkas and Big Boy scooters.
