Big Brother Nigeria is into its final week.
And at no point during the ‘Shine Ya Eye’ did the reality show meet expectations.
Possibly, the highest point of this season, was when the male housemates were brought in 24 hours before the females.
The guys almost stained the innovation with the prank they played. And although they ended it rather shabbily, well, we will take it.
Everything else in the last six weeks or so have been bland. The contestants lack personality and star quality. The games were dry and forced. The triple eviction was desperate. The twists and drama almost made one scratch their eye out.
If we thought the excitement was going to be ramped up in the final weeks, well, we should have known better.
On Sunday, Nini, Saga and Queen were sent home. However, we do not know the finalists yet, except for Emmanuel, Cross and Liquorose.
And the reason is comical. Somehow, Pere has to play a game with Angel to decide who makes it to the finale. This is Biggie completely disregarding public votes that showed clearly that Pere had 10% more than Angel.
So imagine Pere leaving the show because of a silly game. What is then the entire point? Why should viewers bother next week? We could instead sit back and watch the organizers pull off another lazy, hare-brained stunt.
Not as if we care. WhiteMoney will likely walk away with the N90million worth of prizes. We already knew that from Week 1 or 2.
But, by God, what a forgettable endeavour this has been!
