STILL YAWNING...

I was away last week from blogging and I'm sure I can be forgiven by anyone who has been watching. The BBA3 show (in the last two weeks) has been a no show as far as I am concerned and I intend every pun! So what if there was another twist; and there was supposed to be an interesting fake eviction; and there was an unnecessary dumpster that wasn't very well dumped out (they should visit real dumps here in Lagos and see how comfortable their version was); then Ricco tried to jump back to Lucille with Munya still hanging in there somewhere! It all just didn't seem all real and interesting enough to hook viewers, or me at least!
There's no doubt that BB will always have it's addicts and ardent followers (and I always was a proud member of that bunch) but with BBA3, I'm sorry but they have lost me completely! Nothing spoils a reality TV show more than a sad move by the contestants themselves making it obvious that they are trying too hard to impress, especially on a reality show like BB where everyone is watching to see real people like them that they can relate to. Now I regret starting this blog 'cos watching has become more of a chore than anythong else. Here's what I could gather from 2 whole weeks of BBA3!


LOVELY NOMINATIONS THIS WEEK!!!
I'd like to start with what seems to be the most entertaining part of the show so far even though I feel really shitty that Uti is up for possible eviction this week. It would suck so bad for him to leave, especially since it looks like he'll be leaving! Apart from the fact that housemates might be leaving in reverse order from BBA2 (Tanzania won last time and left first this time; just like Nigeria was 2nd last time and might be leaving 2nd this time), I am almost certain that Ghana, Namibia, Angola and maybe South Africa, would be voting Uti out. Add that to the other likely ones like those Southern African countries Zambia (whose rep TK nominated Uti and vice versa), Zimbabwe (whose rep has nominated Uti in the past and hasn't hidden his dislike for him), Malawi (whose rep Hazel, Uti surprisingly nominated this week) ,who all usually vote along the same lines; and Tanzania whose rep left last week but was nominated by Uti! Things are not looking bright for Naija's boy...
But from a neutral point of view, the nomination show was wonderful. For a change, the housemates had serious reasons for nominating, even though Uti's reason for picking Hazel was kinda dodgy! Why would you nominate her because you know she won't come up for eviction? How does that help your cause?
I want my boy to stay on a little longer while really hoping Lucille leaves on sunday; but things ain't looking bright for him at all! And so in my little way of paying tribute to my dude, I've decided to let his fame rub off on me before he leaves the house! Here's my 5 minutes (or 1 week) of fame! Yay!!! I know Uti!!! And it doesn't matter if the picture's weird!!!



TOO MUCH BIG BROTHER SUCKS!!!

I've overheard the housemates more than once, talk about Big Brother shows from before. Everybody quickly and easily analyses how the last couple of BB's went down and why things turned out the way they did. Ricco for example, thinks Tatiana went so far because she was nice enough not to save herself even when she was up for nomination. He therefore will not save himself if he happens to be up so as to follow in Tatiana's steps!

That aside, there seems to be a conscious effort to be strategic. Big Brother is no Survivor and so, the serious attempt at playing the game has left the show lifeless for me. Things are always looked at from a voting point of view. If Uti argues with Lucille, then he would have to scream later that he might have lost Namibia's vote; Mimi gets angry loses her cool really badly but goes into the diary room and claims it was all a gameplan simply because Lucille told her that her outburst might have looked bad on TV; all that added to the constant effort to obviously present us with good TV! Good TV on a reality show of this sort where there's no script, should come naturally and that way it feels more like entertainment. These guys have watched too many BB shows and obviously feel the need to live up to certain stereotypes.

Ricco even said after the nomination, that this has to be the best BB ever!!! Who's measuring? And even if anybody is, is it in their place to judge themselves??? They are trying too hard man, even if not necesarily to be like any particular former BB housemates... It's just tedious man!!!



MIMI!!!

I couldn't find a title good enough to qualify her! For some reason, she just likes to thrust herself into every issue in the house! For viewers who do not get to watch, she kinda does a quick recap with her diary sessions! She just can't stop talking and so, love her or hate her, she does make the show worth it sometimes. It is also completely hillarious fom a viewers standpoint, to constantly hear her talk about strategies. She thinks everyone in the house loves her and can't nominate her since her strategy; to be nice to everyone, is working perfectly. I'm not sure if that is why she hasn't been nominated but what is certain is that she has somehow stayed away from the nomination list and it does help her confidence, which in turn would help her lame strategy, which would in turn give us more things to laugh about!

The chic needs to snap out of her state of delusion! Her strategy is weak, it isn't working and she does appear more hillarious than strategic! But hey, she's making the viewers have a laugh so ride on; especially with that head of hair on her...


HAZY HAZEL...

TK seemed to be missing for the first week or so but in the last couple of weeks Hazel seems to be drowning in her gorgeous hair! Where on earth is she these days? Is she really trying to pull an Ofunneka on us again? Cos even Ofunneka got nominated by the 2nd or 3rd week at least. I know her hair is to die for and I would loooooove to run my hands through it but c'mon, no one should be left to hide their way through a BB show. Hazel needs to be found out ASAP!!!

AND IN OTHER NEWS...

Latoya left the show and Ricco quickly moved on to Lucille who is still liked by Munya, who has started claiming that what he feels for Lucille is fading away, even though Tawana claims that she is on a mission to get munya and Lucille to be together. Tawana though seems to have lost out on the battle for TK's third leg, sorry heart to Sheila, whom Uti claims not to have a thing for but only sees her as one of the boys; just like he sees Thami, who by the way, is gradually taking Hazel away from Uti's reach, leaving him alone like Morris has been...

See you next week, as we hope that things would look brighter! Especially with Uti still in the house?!?

I dont care wat u guys think, but i hope Uti leaves the house. I dont like the way he behaves, plus, i think he's too loud. besides, the guy is trying too hard. I wont vote him oh, but i just hope he leaves. I also dont see wat other people see in the guys looks. Me thinks he looks very untidy, (kill me now).
