56 days. 44 cameras. Live 24/7. Big Brother Mzansi: Double Trouble stormed into action on Mzansi Magic (DStv channel 161) on Sunday. Meet the contestants who will be playing for R2m!
Johannesburg - Last night’s live BBMzansi show served up a twist that no one expected!
The show kicked off with host Lungile Radu recapping the past seven days including the highs and lows as the 10 pairs playing the game got acquainted with one another, the game and the pressure of nominations all while keeping their eyes on the R2m prize money on offer.
After the recap Lungile crossed over to the Big Brother house to chat to Housemates about the week that was. With pleasantries done, he got down to the business of eviction. Lungile revealed that Biggie was pranking them after all and that there would be no evictions this week, much to the relief and absolute delight of the Housemates.
As the Housemates celebrated their good luck, Lungile warned fans of a dramatic twist coming up, and that it had something to do with the red telephone in the house.
Biggie advised Lungile that the red telephone would ring in exactly 30 seconds and the show’s cameras cut to the house. Then the ring came and when it did the Housemates dashed toward the phone only to be beaten to the telephone by the fast moving Ex, once again!
Biggie’s instruction to Ex was simple. Take your partner Lebo and leave the house through the Big Brother doors. The duo complied and the rest of the Housemates were left wondering as to what would happen next.
Lebo and Ex made their way onto stage where Lungile showed them a briefcase full of money and made them a dramatic offer…take the money and leave the show. Or leave the money and take their chances in the game. They had to make the choice as a couple. Yes indeed, what a tough choice…and one which promptly got even harder when Lungile revealed the briefcase contained R 100 000!
With ninety seconds to choose, it was decision time. Lebo wanted to leave, Ex wanted to stay…so she tried to convince him, even getting the audience involved, as the clock counted down. Saying he’d take the money for Lebo, Ex confirmed the choice to take the money to Lungsta and then broke down in tears as Lebo tried to console him. But the deal was done and pretty soon, the twosome were smiling and exited the stage and the show!
Lungile closed out the show reminding fans that nominations would begin straight after the show as individuals first nominate, and continue until tomorrow morning when the pairs nominate. Importantly all nominations will be for pairs.
Once nominations are complete, it’s over to the fans to vote. Voting lines open tomorrow (Monday) at 22:30 and close at 06:00 next Sunday morning.
Fans should vote for their favourite Housemate to stay in the game, but must be aware that they are also voting for that Housemates partner because the game is played in pairs.
