The new season of Big Brother Africa is here. This season has been dubbed The Chase, so expect drama, romance and lots of courting. I got to meet all 28 last night, minutes before they went into the house and let’s be honest there are a couple of good looking housemates in this group. The dudes are quite athletic, fit and shit and the girls are hot city! So it should be a good season. Want to know more about this year’s housemates? Check out their profile’s below:
Bank worker and student Biguesas from Luanda, is single, and doesn’t have any children. He describes himself as “handsome, intelligent, extroverted, always playing and talkative”. He values sincerity in others and says that those close to him at home are very excited to see him on the show.
If he wins the grand prize, he’ll share some of the money with his family, donate some, pay for university and buy a house. He’s also excited by the prospect of fame, as he’s always wanted to be a TV presenter.
He says his favourite actors are Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie and his favourite films are 8 Mile and Salt. He likes watching Mixed Martial Arts and World Wrestling Entertainment on TV and his favourite foods are ‘pap’, hamburgers and fries. Biguesas says the best thing about Africa is the fauna & flora and that his favourite place outside of Angola is Pretoria in South Africa, where he spent 3 years at high school.
Biguesas says he is proud to be finishing University soon, a first within his family of 9 siblings.
Neyll is currently studying at university, is single and works as an IT Productivity coach. He has a daughter and is from Luanda. He describes himself as “fun, entertaining, unforgettable, intense and unique”.
His favourite food is prawn cocktail, he loves watching Big Brother and The Voice and enjoys the music of Craig David and Michael Jackson. His favourite actor is Tom Cruise, because he identifies with him. No surprise then, that one of his favourite movies is Mission Impossible!
His favourite place in Angola is Mussulo Island because it’s a nice place to have fun and be with family and friends. Neyll says the best thing about Africa is its strong culture that can’t be compared to any other. His role model is his father because he was the person who inspired him and taught him to be a man.
Neyll entered Big Brother to be on TV. He loves the Live Show and says he knows how to play the game. He also thinks it’ll be a great opportunity to meet new people and share ideas and cultures. He says viewers can expect surprises from him and get the chance to see the real Neyll. If he wins the big prize, he’ll give some money to charity and help his family.
