Namibia: Big Brother Countdown Begins?

Article Views (non — Halfway through the Big Brother Stargame, some housemates are starting to miss home badly and wouldn't mind seeing their loved ones given the chance.

Being no exception, Lady May broke down during one of the diary session letting Big Brother know that she too missed home, and also the recently evicted South African Diva Barbz. She told Biggie that all she wanted to do was sleep and close her eyes and just shut everything out. However Lady May added that as much as she wanted to come home, she wouldn't in fear that it would make her look weak.

The petite songstress eventually broke into tears, while Biggie did his best to console her and make her feel all better. Having only been nominated once since the game began, Lady May seems to be doing rather well to stay in the game and keeping away from being nominated by fellow housemates.

Fellow country person, Junia, seems to have made very good use of her almost two weeks since being upgraded to Upville. She has been spenting most of her time chatting way with her housemates, sharing jokes and going about the day to day business of the Upville residence.

Barbz bids farewell

Since the Zimbawean pair, Maneta and Rocky, was disqualified for contravening Biggie's rules on violence in the house, there has been many questions on whether nominations would stand as they were. Initially Maneta, Keitta and Barbz were up for possible eviction prior to Maneta leaving.

Biggie then made it clear that nominations would still go as planned, and since Junia and Keagan were exempted from nominations, housemates seemed to have figured that it was down to Keitta and Lay May for possible eviction up against Barbz.

The rest of the week had housemates pissed off at the fact that they all knew that head of house, Goldie, had gone and done the obvious, saving her man, Prezzo, without any doubts.

Eventually eviction day arrived and Barbz was the latest Upville celeb to be shown the exit doors from the Stargame.

Tears all around

Seeing that housemates were already aware of the fact that Goldie had saved her boo, she spent most of the day of the eviction sobbing and comforting herself, apparently because she felt guilty about the fact that she didn't save Barbz and then went on to save Prezzo and replace his spot with Keitta. Upon hearing that Barbz was leaving, Goldie broke into an uncontrollable fit of tears clinging to Barbz and endlessly apologising on her knees. Though this is a game, and at some point all will have to go and face the chopping board.

Random nominations

This week saw random nominations in the Downville residence pitting Zambia's duo, Tamara and Talia, against Malawi's Nafe and Wati. Wati who has spent the last few weeks doing nothing more than getting wasted on Biggie's stock of alcohol, seems to now be referred to as Downviller's resident clown.

On the other hand, sisters Talia and Tamara have been at each other's throats yelling and hurling insults at each other when needs be. They have done nothing more than go off at each other for some or other issues that they seemed to have outside of the house. They even went as far as having separate diary sessions all because they could not stand each.

Everything seems to be ok for now as they made up but something says they might be going off at it again considering their issues in the house, initially started when Talia used to spend way too much time with then new found love, Seydou, from Angola. That was before he left the house.

There are only a handful of housemates now left in the game as the countdown to a cool USD 300 000 continues. Who will win? No one knows....
