Congratulations to all of the BBMzansi Housemates who are still in the running!
With only 10 Housemates remaining, we are getting closer to the #BBMzansi Grand Finale, and with R2 million on the line, the stakes are rising. We have a lot of questions about how they’ve all had to change their strategy for this game, but each Housemate has brought something unique to the table.
Tulz has gotten this far in the game without being Nominated for Eviction because, as fate would have it, he won Head of House when he was likely to be Nominated, making him immune to the Nominations process. We must admit that, at some point, luck truly does come to you when you need it the most.
Sis Tamara shook the House when they didn’t save Terry when she was Nominated but instead put Vyno up for Eviction. Although the talk was that it wasn’t personal, we believe they were strategic in demonstrating that Game yiGame and you don’t owe any Housemate loyalty, especially when your sights are set on the whopping grand prize.
From lovers to strangers, Mphowabadimo and Libo were both concerned about how they would fare in the House if they teamed up, whether for strategy or genuinely dating. While these were valid concerns about their individuality in the game – they have both foregone any chance of finding love in order to keep their eyes on the prize – they have both sacrificed any chance of finding love in order to keep their eyes on the prize.
Terry and Venus have also admitted that they are relieved that their love interests are no longer in the House. Their departure provided some unexpected clarity to their purpose in Biggie’s House. This is evident in how they have taken the initiative to become more active in the House. At the very least, it is clear to see them, money over boys is the message here – we hope they continue to play!
Gash1, on the other hand, has been playing his own game; by the second week, he had changed his strategy and decided to play for the long haul. Although he has never revealed how he plays his game, we do know that Gash1 has been dispersing the BBMzansi House.
Themba has kept his guard up, playing the observation game to ensure he knows exactly what’s going on in the House while keeping his competition close by. He is also the most outspoken about not tying himself to any friendship or alliance, and he is not afraid to let his rivals know that he is aware of their game. He’s admitted in several Diary Sessions that he doesn’t trust any of his Housemates, including Biggie. We only know he’s keeping his eyes open. Despite his strategic alliance with Gash1, he believes that keeping the less competitive Housemates in the House will provide them with a better chance of winning. We look at Themba’s many strategies that have evolved throughout the game.
Nale and her “have fun” strategy have gotten her this far, and she is well worth mentioning. She stays in her lane, trying to mind her own business. She is certain that everything she has done thus far has kept her in the House, which primarily consists of her maintaining the same character throughout. We admire a girl who has a plan and stays true to herself; after all, girls just want to have fun!
Thato is one of the Housemates who has had to evolve in a short period of time. Thato has intentionally questioned the gents who have confessed interest in her while consciously choosing which gent is ideal for her by playing her cards right in choosing who to ship with.We have to say that it has been beneficial to her. She has finally entered the game, she claims, and has decided not to play with emotions while realizing that everyone else is playing strategically. Despite the fact that it took her friends leaving and herself being nominated to get to this point, she has adopted a mind game strategy that may or may not work for her even at this stage of the game.
