After fighting the good fight and holding on for eight weeks, the fat lady has sung for Thando - loud and with great finality.
Love her or hate her, Thando is one Big Brother Mzansi Housemate who wielded influence and knew exactly how to use her powers of persuasion. Thando came into the game and immediately made a lifelong friend of Lola. The two quickly asserted themselves and helped each other through dark days in the House.
Unfortunately, the two couldn't seem to keep themselves out of trouble and scored a Strike each for conspiring. After Lola left, it seemed as though Thando would disintegrate into a million little pieces, but not this girl.
Thando showed just how strong she is by bouncing back and in better shape than before. Unfortunately, she seemed to be tottering on the brink of Disqualification, after earning herself second Strike just this week. Despite all the negatives, she quickly managed to cement a close bond with Mzamo, which held her in good stead when Eviction time came.
Twice, Head of House Mzamo Saved her from the Eviction gallows, ensuring her continued stay in the Big Brother Mzansi House. This evening however, Thando's luck ran out and not even Mzamo could Save her from her destiny. After being shuttled off to the Party Room with Loko, Mzamo and Sol, Live Show host Lungsta delivered the news. To show just how much she doesn't like Sol, Thando gave everyone a goodbye hug, and snubbed him. Ouch!
Thando given the boot
During her Exit Interview on stage, Thando was pretty honest about her stay in the Big Brother Mzansi House. "I regret how I was the resident Head Of Conspiracy in that House, but I have verbal diarrhea, Lungile. No one will ever understand how much the pressure gets to you," she said. Addressing how she missed out on walking away with R200 000 during the Friday Night Game last week, Thando revealed how "I probably need a cleansing ceremony."
After all is said and done, we're positive we'll be seeing and hearing more of Thando in the near future.
Tune into the Nomination Show on Monday night to see who will be on the chopping block this week.
