Big Brother Africa – The Chase housemate profiles

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:

ANGOLA

Biguesas

Age: 29

 

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

Age: 32

 

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.

Big shocker on Big Brother Amplified?

So last night saw the end of yet another hugely successful season of reality TV show Big Brother Amplified. Nigeria’s Karen and Zimbabwe’s Wendall walked off with a whopping USD 200 000 each, when host IK made the announcement on the live broadcast on DStv channel 198. I’ll admit I didn’t watch the show much this season, but I’ve heard from several people that it was a great season. I’ve also heard that a lot of people weren’t happy with how the votes went ie. Wendall won and Luclay from South Africa didn’t. Now let’s break this down a bit shall we:

– If you vote, then you have a reason to moan and be upset that your favourite didn’t win. If you didn’t then you need to shut up. You have no leg to stand on. There are a lot of the latter in that category. You therefore cannot bitch and moan.

– The continent of Africa is big. This season had some 14 nations represented in the house. That means that those nations are all voting. Some have bigger populations than others, granted, but viewers also vote for who they like. While South Africa might’ve liked Luclay, other nations preferred Wendall and Karen to him. That is just the way the cookie crumbles.

– It’s not fair to pull the race card, which I’ve seen a lot of on Twitter and it’s also not fair to say this is rigged. How can it be? The votes are there, clear as day. The votes have been audited and thoroughly checked. There is no cheating involved like many others have suggested. Get over yourselves!

A few other questions:

If Wendall was so boring then why did he win?

If you think this is the “Nigeria show”, then you obviously missed the season where Richard from Tanzania won right? Stop making baseless assumptions like this. It’s wrong!

Let’s all stop being spoiled sports, face the music and accept that these two won and the others didn’t.

I thank you 🙂

Big Brother tells Hannington to pack his bags

Vodpod videos no longer available.


This just in, Big Brother has instructed Hannington to pack his bags and go. This in light of the physical altercation he had with South African housemate Lerato on Tuesday night. The two got into a heated argument and that evolved into a physical fight. Lerato was punched in the face and suffered a bleeding gum it’s believed. The issue caused a big stir outside the house, with the broadcaster coming under fire for deciding to leave the Ugandan housemate in the house. But Big Brother seems to have changed ‘his/her’ position saying, “After very careful consideration and consultation” – Hannington has been disqualified and evicted. ” Goodbye and good riddance. Yes sure it takes two to tango, but there is no place in a house or in greater society for a man who raises his hand to a woman. The end!

Here’s the official statement:

M-Net Statement: Big Brother All Stars

Big Brother All Stars is a reality television programme that is designed to contain 14 housemates in a house for 91 days under certain rules and regulations. In an incident late on Tuesday night (14 September) there was a breach of the Big Brother rules and M-Net and series producer Endemol have had to evaluate and consider the sanctions to be imposed for the breach of these rules.

In order to assist in providing these sanctions, M-Net and Endemol called in a psychologist to assess the situation and the individuals involved, to ensure fairness and that the best interests of the housemates were taken into consideration. The psychologist advised that an assessment of the housemates was required and a series of interviews was conducted in order to determine their mental and emotional state before Big Brother made public his decision on this matter.

Save South Africa’s Big Brother housemate, Lerato


This week the would-be lovers Tatiana and Munya were put up by the rest of their housemates as the two up for eviction in the Big Brother All Stars series. But because Tatiana is again head of house, she got to save herself and put one of her housemates on the chopping block. Who did she choose? South Africa’s Lerato. Urgh. She must have some beef with Lerato. It’s probably because Lerato is strong-willed, fun and a treat to Tati. I’m hoping Lerato doesn’t ‘go home’ aka to the barn, but I guess we’ll have to wait and see tonight. I dig Munya too so it’s a tough call. I’m behind #TeamLerato. I hope you are too 🙂
