There is only one week left for Ebubu, Ipeleng, Kanaga Jr, Khosi, Tsatsii, and Yvonne to stay at the house.
That was destined to be a terrible night. Six of the nine remaining housemates were up for eviction, therefore a large number of them had to go in order for the final week to begin.
While that’s all well and good, remember the three who were so near but had to back out.
One of those “quiet” housemates was Justin. He never overemphasized himself or completely took over a conversation, but his influence on the atmosphere of the house was unmistakable.
Although some of the other roommates were offended by his poorly thought out jokes earlier this week, his generally positive nature usually helped to create a peaceful tone.
After leaving the house, Justin entered the stage with a smile on his face and a spring in his step.
“Words cannot express how I am feeling at this moment. I’m quite proud of how far I’ve come.
This young man consistently exhibits the kind of optimism we’ve grown to anticipate from him.
It was clear from the minute Blaqboi entered the house 70 days ago that he would be one of the main players there, and his alliance with Ipeleng was one of the strongest of the season.
Ipeleng picked him to go with her to the HoH bedroom the first time she won the championship, even after the pairings had been divided.
Having said that, she didn’t choose him to advance to the finale, which is why he might have informed Ebuka and Lawrence during his exit interview that he was pulling for Khosi.
Blaqboi gave Ebuka a completely appropriate response when she questioned him about why everyone appeared delighted to be leaving the house: “We’re just happy to see folks.” “I feel that my only option at this point is to leave the house right away.”
Thabang has experienced a rough week. His long-simmering romance with Khosi burst into flames, setting social media abuzz. Even if there have been a few bumps along the road, supporters still strongly favor the “Baby of the house,” it simply doesn’t seem to be strong enough.
“Coming into the game, I didn’t have a strategy,” Thabang told the presenters. “I think I’m lucky to have gotten as far as I got.” Of course, Lawrence could help but ask him what the deal is with Khosi, and whether it was strategy.
“Khosi and my unionship [his word] was a complicated one. We started as friends. It’s when speculation started that something was going on that something actually started going on.” Which is a dodge to the question, yes, but it’s an entertaining one.
While we’ll certainly miss all three of tonight’s evicted housemates, the most important thing of the night is that we now know our six finalists: Ebubu, Ipeleng, Kanaga Jnr, Khosi, Tsatsii, and Yvonne will be living in the house for one more week, hoping for your votes. You know what to do. Voting is open.
