BBA Final Showdown: All Eyes on Melvin, Beverly

As this year’s Big Brother Africa (BBA) television reality show comes to an end. The anticipations about who will take home the princely $300,000 (about N48 million) grand prize on Sunday, 25 August, are as high as never before.
With last week’s exit of dreadlocked South Africa’s Angelo Collins, who was one of the favourites for the grand prize, and Ethiopia’s Bimp, the top 5 for the final looks like this: the two Nigerians – Beverly Osu and Melvin Oduah, Ghana’s Elikem, Namibia’s Dillish, and Zambia’s Cleo.
The five have survived 88 days in the House and now need every vote possible to get their hands on the much sought after grand cash prize.
On 26 May, 28 housemates from 14 countries entered the Big Brother House in Johannesburg, South Africa for a 91-day of fun and entertainment in a secluded environment. But as the end of The Chase is just days away, social media, especially Facebook and Twitter, have been abuzz with fans getting creative with their support for their favourite housemates.
Whoever wins on Sunday would hug instant fame and fortune, joining the likes of Nigeria’s Kevin Pam Chuwang (2009), Uti Nwachukwu (2010), Karen Igho (2011) and South Africa’s Keagan Petersen, who was last year’s winner of the show.
The two Nigerian representatives have been enjoying massive votes from Nigerians and other Africans. Melvin seems to be the favourite, but Beverly is also attracting attention from fans and laying a huge claim to the grand prize in spite of the opprobrium she attracted from some quarters over her controversial intimate encounters with Angelo in the house.Angelo, who approached five ladies while in the house, told IK Osakioduwa, the show host, during the live eviction show last Sunday that Beverly wanted more sex after their scandalous romp under the duvet and in the bathtub.
“I like Beverly because she is a strong woman and she would go for whatever she wants. Beverly told me it has been over one week since we last did it (referring to the sex in the bath tub) but I said NO. I promised my mother I would not do such, so I can’t do it again,” Angelo said of Nigeria’s video vixen.
On top of the $300,000 grand prize that each of the top five Housemates are in line to win, last night, each of the Chase housemates were given an opportunity to win a piece of jewellery worth $1000.
“In the House is a box from down memory lane and on the middle box is a picture of each remaining Housemate. On the picture is a space for a hand. On the sound of the buzzer, each Housemate will have to put their right hand on the picture of their face where the hand mark is placed. This will be an endurance Task,” read Biggie’s Brief to the Top 5.
Except for Melvin, who claimed to have jewellery worth $3000, four other housemates faced off in an Endurance Task where each of them had to place their hand on a box with their picture on it and whoever manages to hold on the longest and outlast the others would be crowned the winner and walk away with the $1000 jewellery prize.
After a long and excruciating battle, that saw her fight through fatigue, hunger and cramped hands, Dillish bagged herself a beautiful prize that consists of a piece of jewellery of her choice worth $1000.
Meanwhile, Nigeria’s DJ Xclusive will make a return to the Big Brother House to shut down the final Channel O Party tomorrow.
The hip WizKid’s official DJ and Lagos urban radio station Cool 96.9 FM’s DJ in a message promised to make it a party to remember as it will be the housemates’ last party.
