BBA 3. NOT ALL THAT AFTERALL...

It's been a week already since I posted here, a week since BBA 3 started, a week since 12 new guinea pigs were shoved in our faces and sadly, I'm already tired! I really am a reality show buff so much so that I had to get on one but for some reason, watching BBA3 seems to be more like a chore than anything else! I am not trying to be the ultimate critic here. It's just my honest opinion. We got to see too much too soon from the 12 new housemates and there seems to be some level of desperation to impress much more than anything else.
But then I haven't watched as much as I shoul have. Heard about a game of truth or dare but couldn't watch, I also missed the shared kisses all over the place and that means I can't even talk as much as I'd have wanted to this week.
I like the idea of a fake eviction at first instance though. Twists should be unexpected and this one sure is...
M'while, here are a few of my thoughts on week one;

WORST STRATEGY EVER ON BIG BROTHER:
This is Latoya's award definitely! She said to Big Brother in the diary room on Day 3, that she was glad to be playing with Morris' and Ricco's minds. According to her, she'd be glad if 5 or 6 guys were after her since that was her strategy; to get the men to drool over her!
Well, on Day 6, it was all over after Uti talked to her and told her to make up her mind and let Morris know where things stood. She goes on to say she likes Morris and can't hurt him. Meaning that with 84 days to go, her strategy was already up in smoke and nearly dead on arrival. How dreadful...


PRETTY CONFUSED OR BEAUTIFUL LIAR?
Lucille is everyone's darling. Pretty, quiet and probably much more of a personality than meets the eye. She told Big Brother on Day 3 that she was not comfortable with the attention she was getting from the men all of a sudden. She had hoped to go unnoticed in the house for a while but it obviously didn't work out.
Then she got quizzed by Munya and she claimed to like Ricco and Uti and Munya and TK. She ended up (probably) kissing Munya on Day 7 but then walked out of the room afterwards. Then she told Thami in the glass room that she likes Munya but just as a friend. She'd also said before that she liked his voice and used to actually like TK at the start of the show. Too many emotions all at once and viewers don't know where to hold on to!
Can she really be that confused or is she messing withe evryone?



WE'RE NOT SMARTER THAN 5TH GRADERS!

First it was Uti who thought that the Tutsi's and Hutu's fought in Uganda and not Rwanda!

Then Munya (the Zimbabwean) didn't remember when Zimbabwe gained their independence!

Then Thami (the South African) confused South Africa's Independence with the end of Apartheid.

Too many gaffes for one week!!!


PINOCCHIO!

On day 4, Sheila told Uti that she had no idea how the whole Big Brother concept works. According to her, she had never watched the show before becoming a housemate herself apart from the 2 scenes she once caught in passing. She blames that for not having a strategy.

But then, Sheila has talked about Abby and Bruna and Gaetano and Jeff; all former BB housemates. She also confessed to having applied last year for BBA2 and while watching Jeff, she couldn't understand why they picked him over her! Dodgy girl huh...



SICKO RICCO!!!

His neck twitches unbelievably, he blinks every 2 seconds, he acts half his age and cross dresses!He lost out in the battle for Latoya with Morris, sems to be losing female fans equally and has been insinuated to be gay but hey, he hasn't stopped for a break. Too much drama in one package. I hope he slows down and tones down soon cos the cross dressing in particular is not even near funny anymore.




VANITY, STUPIDITY AND POOR VISION!

The vogue in the house seems to be the wearing of sunglasses all the time. Someone probably told them that it was/is a cool idea or that it's currently the vogue, probably to fool them but they obviously took the person seriously. Uti wears shades indoors and at night, Takondwa wears shades inside the house and at night, so also do Sheila, Ricco, Mimi and Munya! I'm still trying to figure out what the whole idea is but I sure know that it's wrong.
Morris is the most guilty tho. The brother feels like he's the best thing since sliced bread and loves to show off his arms and body. He must have been told in the past that he's really cute and that has worked for him. But the shades at night; c'mon!






THAMI AGAINST THE WORLD.
I like Thami but I feel like I'm alone on this one. The viewers think he's irritating, self centered, laughs in a weird way and doesn't take jokes very well. The housemates also agree and put him up for (fake) nomination this week.But I think he's smart, sincere, funny and quite the drama king. I liked that he threw out the cigarrettes and meat in the house! Nice twist! The fact that he's not even a suspect makes it more interesting. He's also the only person to have noticed a clique forming in the house amongst Morris, Uti and Ricco even it seems more a case of paranoia. Big Brother punished him for wasting food by throwing meat away but hey, it did give his show, content for 3 whole days with the house in panic over what had happened to the missing items. Hope he stays in for a bit longer than the viewers/housemates want him to...






AND THE WINNER IS...

If the show were to end today, Munya woud win. He's good looking, talks well, says the right things at the right time, smiles a lot and is hooking up with the hottest chic in the house, Lucille. I like him a lot and most housemates and viewers do too. But his style of nominations might be his undoing. It's still a blur as to why he nominated Lucille, a girl supposedly after his heart. Obviously places the prize money over anything else. Would that backfire? We'll see...


Okay, so if I didn't watch that much last week and still had this much to say, then you can only imagine that next week must be loaded. See u then...

If you have not watched then shut the 4cup. Being the ultimate critic is what you are aiming for. You have to constantly sound sacarstic for nothing... nonsense and bitter has been

Munya nominated Sheila and Rico for same reasons not Lucille... they are both in love with Lucille. Get ur facts maite!

anon@1.35,
c'mon!!!!!
Go easy, everyone is entitled to their opininons (esp. on their blogging space) duh!

Well, it's about time for a deranged reply to the posts here. And of course, they are always from spineless anonymous people!

I just think the h-mates ae trying too hard to surpass the last ones. The show kinda lost its oomph for me but me unlike you is such a BB fan that i just cant miss the show. The naija guy Uti should tone down on his "am a naija guy persona"...the whole of africa is watching and you gatta be able to relate to them as such. He seems to be very choosy too. Woudnt sleep in the room with the others at first (slept in the parlour the first days), complains of food and says some things about nigeria that in my opinion is just over-exagerrated to suit his purpose.
Sometimes we forget that looks isnt everything. Nigerians were so quick to say he is the best rep we ever got cos she is cute, yeah but i think Ofunneka reped big time, looks or not. It would take mure more from Uti to make him seem a potential winner, now he is just flat. How come he sounds so much like Tuface Idibia in the diary room? Dont shoot me, am a tuface fan but hey dude be Vocal and expressive, the only time he is doing that is when he is gossiping about the girls with Ricco or some other guy.

Its strange but am kinda rooting for Munya at the moment. I hope Uti changes my mind.

Lerato said...

I completely agree with the article...100%

And i think if people wanna leave name calling comments then they should have enuf balls to not be anonymous.

Habeeb said...

But then again am thinking back at the other BB's, it wasnt anything in the first week too(except BB Naija, u know nigerians are colourful people) so lets give them sometime. Probably when they start being themselves the show would then begin

yankeenaijababe said...

wow...very nicely written. I think Morris is the silly guy in the house too. Uti is weird. Lucille is cool. Latoya is a slut, bitch, whore.lol

Repping for Tawonda and mimi all the way. I am not Ghana but Naija.

Sfladipo said...

Thanks Unruly/Ebuka for the constant update...

I thot I was the only pne who felt the drag in teh show...These house-mates are too prepped up for the show and frankly I dont think we;ve seen anyone's tru colours yet they are all still acting....

It gets very boring for me to actually sit down an d watch more than 30 mins and thats cos its like a big play pen where everyone has chosen the role of an animal.....

Mayb and hopefully these Queer housemates will start to give us some of their true selves and then the show really begins....meanwhile I'm still rooting for Munya (Although I doubt if a guy will win this year, going by Mnet's gender ratio)

mizchif said...

WOW! Some bitterness in the place already. Thanks for the review, for those of us who can't get to watch, this really helps.

Nice work, keep keeping us posted.

Mrs Scofield said...

I dont think this show is particularly boring, i experienced the same drag with the last bb's.I think there's always a period like that in every season.I actually think Morris is cute, and i dont mind Ricco's dressense, i think the other guys are a bit drab with their dressing.Nice post tho.

dude just read ur recenblog and compared it to the last one u wrote, you mentioned in ur previous blog that lucille is alright and she will be forgotten soon,then your recent blog you mentioned that she is the hottest chick.
dude which one you dey?

Lola said...

@anon - chiiiiiiiilll man/lady. I wonder why someone would come on someone else's blog and then call them names....???? don't get it sha.

I liked Lucy before but not so much now, she gets on my nerves with her good girl play and she's being used by Thami. Which brings me to Thami....he's sooooo annoying gosh. You're right about paranoia (sp? lol) sha, the guy's making things up and then feeding it to Lucy....ah well.

I like Mimi though, she's manipulative, I want her to stay!

adaeze said...

i love big brother but not in naij at the moment so i cant watch this one (boohoo). just want to say thanks for the big brother updates through your blog,it really helps!!!

Damolah~Munyalicious! said...

Rather interesting...i wont agree with u 100% tho.... i'm feeling BBA3, i watch every single minute til they go to bed... i like the mix... plus theres a couple of charismatic people.... i think its way waaaaay better than BBA2.....
Plus yeah, Munya nominated Sheila and not Lu.....By the way i have to add at this point that Munya is like the hottest thin that happend to BBA3.. i like Uti a lot and he's a lotta fun but Munya just rubs me the right way all the tyme....4 real!
As for Latoya, i think she had the worst strategy...SERIOUSLY!!!
Hazel, TK, Morris- i think r boring....
A lotta people find Mimi annoyin 4 sum reason but i actually think she's aight....
Thami happens to be teh most annoying of th ebunch in my opinion...
Ricco is just a party boy who likes to have fun...
Sheila is attracted to Lucille by the way (i find her ways rather "queer"..lol)
Tawana seems the odd one out in the house...probably cos of her age (Not like it deterred her wen she said she wanted to get laid by Munya...she's like 9yrs older than him..."Nigga please!" lol)
Lucille has got sum mad strategy goin on and i hope she doesnt mess with my boys head too much.... i mean Munya... Dang! that guy is sooooo adorable....
In all, i think they r "Keeping It Gangster" (in their own phrase)

Chipmunk said...

I actually enjoying this one a lot more than BBA2 and I think there is a giid mix. Munya,Sheila,Tawana and Ricco aremy favs. Yes I agree Ricco is a cross dressing child, but he has his entertainment factor and I hope he sticks around.Uti is cool and funny but is a bit of a pseudoi moralist, after holding bible and trying to force christianity down a few people's throast he snapped like a twig when Lucille started her cunny moves to make him look bad, he's not smart afterall!

I dont agree fully with your assesment, and as a former BB contestant yourself I think you should cut them some slack..its a process and as you well know things start to heat up from nominations....a cool group so far IMO

SPEECHgirl Bucknor said...

People forget that a blog means u come and leave ur own opinions
and people sign in as anonymous so they can run their mouths

COWARDS

moving on!

remember remember, the early 'leads' never win!
so lets keep watching

Nicely written.

U probably thought lucille was nominated by munya bcos that is what is/was on the mnet bibrother3 website. I dont know if it has been corrected but thats what I read on monday night then I watched the video and ....

zibby said...

just wondering,did u actually watch the nominations????
munya nominated ricco and sheila,not lucille
anyways i think this season is a bot strange,the people acting like they are all long lost friends.lol

yankeenaijababe said...

@Zibby, you can say that again. I wonder who has the best strategy in the house? Kinda of weird to come up with an assumption at the moment of anyone. Let's keep watching as the weeks go by.

The kind of job i do has actuatuly made 'time' precious n scarce. It doesn't diminish d interest in BBA 3 anyway.
Honestly, this is the part of u i think that is most interesting. After reading ur write up, i feel entertained n at par wit all. We're looking forward 2 nxt wk.
Do kip it up n never break d chain.
