Sunday, April 22, 2018 saw the conclusion of the third season of Big Brother Naija. Of course, the Double Wahala was full of drama, love, friendship, fights, lies and manipulations.
We have compiled what we think are the top 10 moments of the season.
Which was your favorite?
On Saturday, March 31, 2018, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu announced Bambam as the latest to leave the house.
Quite unlike previous evictions, Bambam was evicted on a Saturday, after the weekly house party. Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, who had promised to attend the party with a special guest, came with Steve from Deloitte, the audit company responsible for counting votes.
Bambam’s eviction made her the first contestant to ever get evicted from the Big Brother Naija/Africa house on a Saturday.
2. Cee-C and Tobi’s first kiss
After weeks of begging and being curved, Tobi finally got a passionate kiss from Cee-C on day 16 of the show. The pair shared a very deep kiss in the storeroom, while Lolu watched.
Paired as Ceebi, Cee-C and Tobi had had a very controversial relationship. In the early days of the show, Cee-C was known for rejecting Tobi’s advances while being jealous of his relationship with other ladies in the house.
As the days went by, the pair became strangers, and their fights and arguments escalated.
3. Khloe and K.Brule’s disqualification
In the third week, Khloe and her strategic partner, K.Brule, were disqualified. This was after Big Brother issued a total of three strikes to the pair.
During one of their disagreements after the Saturday house party, Khloe provoked K.Brule by calling his mother a whore.
Due to the offense of provocation, Big Brother gave Khloe a strike, putting the pair on two strikes (K.Brule initially earned the pair a strike when he jumped from the balcony and inflicted injury on himself).
For threatening to assault Dee-One and ignoring Biggie’s calls, K.Brule earned the pair a third strike, which eventually led to their disqualification from the game.
4. The return of evicted housemates
This season came with the twist of viewers having the chance to vote their favorite evicted housemate back into the game a second time.
As expected, the twist sparked different reactions from many of the viewers. While some were happy about the prospect of having their favourites back on the show, others considered it unfair to the other housemates.
Anto and Khloe were the lucky evicted housemates, who got a second chance to play the game.
5. Cee-C injures Lolu
On day 16 of the show, Cee C and Lolu, who were both joined with a harness, had a clash that earned them two strikes each.
In the morning, after a meeting with fellow housemates, Lolu asked Cee-C to follow him to the kitchen for him to complete his washing. She refused, saying that she wanted to sit down.
When Lolu didn’t move, she started pulling and stretching the strap until it unhooked and hit him very close to his groin, leaving a red mark.
6. Bambam and Teddy A’s toilet sex
Although the Bamteddy pair weren’t the only romantic pair to consummate their on-screen relationship in the house,their bathroom sex was quite the event, which had the tongues of both fans and viewers wagging.
7. Miracle and Nina’s 1st kiss
Just two days into the season, Miracle and Nina, popularly tagged Mina, shared their first kiss.
Apart from being the first kiss of the season, the kiss came two days after Nina publicly said she wasn’t interested in finding love in the house, as she is already in a relationship.
Viewers had mocked her claims, and gave her two weeks to go back on her word. The pair eventually grew to become some viewers’ favourite couple in the house.
8. Alex crying for Leo
Following Leo’s eviction, an Alex, who had just survived possible eviction broke into tears, while Rico, Tobi and Nina tried to console her.
According to her, she had thought that she would be the one consoling Nina, who was also up for possible eviction.
Although Alex eventually made it to the finals, her dramatic reaction to her love interest’s exit is one that won’t be forgotten in a hurry.
9. Cee-C and Tobi’s fight
This season brought us one of the most memorable housemates ever in the form of Cee-C. She clashed with many of the housemates – Khloe, Nina, Alex, Ifu – but her fight with her former strategic partner and love interest, Tobi, remains the most controversial.
On the morning of day 80 of the season, Cee-C stomped around the House while urling insults at Tobi.
Cee-C called him names like: useless, miserable fool, a man who can’t stand on his own, gossip, mumu, ode, oloshi and more.
Unlike her past fights with other housemates, this went viral, and had celebrities such as Toolz, Kemi Adetiba, Linda Ikeji and DJ Exclusive reacting.
10. Miracle’s win
The Big Brother Naija finale had quite a number of surprises. Contrary to social media predictions, Nina was evicted before Alex, and Cee-C beat Tobi to emerge the first runner-up.
The #BBNnaija and #BBNaijaFinale hashtags trended for hours on Twitter. Most of those tweets were focused on viewers’ and non-viewers’ shock at the possibility of who they thought was the least favourite – Cee-C – emerging the winner.
After 12 weeks of playing the game, Miracle emerged the winner, bringing the season to an end.
