After another exciting week in the Big Brother house, South Africa’s Barbz was evicted from Upville during the live eviction show on Sunday, June 24, 2012, after receiving fewer country votes than Ghana’s Keitta.
Nigerian contestant Goldie, who is the current head of house, had swapped her ‘boyfriend’ Prezzo for Keitta. And it didn’t feel too good when IK read out the South African’s name.
Zimbabwe’s Maneta was the third nominated housemate, but was disqualified along with Roki, after the pair contravened Big Brother’s provocation and violence rules.
‘I was caught up in the moment and confused – I had to replace Prezzo with Keitta. I’m so sorry Barbz’, an emotional Goldie said as she sank to her knees in front of the South African. Barbz comforted her friend, telling her it was ok, as Keitta headed upstairs to hurriedly pack his bags.
Once the Ghanaian had his luggage ready, IK returned to the house to reveal the result of Africa’s votes. ‘Keitta, you’re not leaving Upville – Barbz, I’m sorry, you’ve been evicted from the Big Brother house’, said IK, as Goldie broke down again.
Barbz strutted her way to the front of the stage and joined IK, saying she was excited to see so many beautiful faces in the studio audience. She told him that she was looking forward to heading home to the people who love her and who will take care of her.
Zambia’s Talia and Tamara and Malawi’s Nafe and Wati are all up for eviction this week. Let’s see how this goes…
