Head of House, Chichi, Chizzy and Hermès today discussed their next bet and what their pitch would look like so they can finally clinch a win.

Last night, after winning the position of house manager, Phyna was overjoyed and promised all the housemates that food would not be a problem. As she spoke, she said, “It’s the queen’s diet, we’re going to have everything in excess.” However, the only way to do this would be to win the bet of the week. Some of the housemates are determined to make this happen.

While cleaning the kitchen this morning, Chchi explained to Chizzy all the ideas she had in mind for Wager’s presentation on Friday. She explained that she wanted to build on the keyword breakpoint first. According to Chichi, it was important for the presentation to highlight moments that made the housemates angry, scared and emotional. She glimpsed moments like the food fight and also said that slang usually spoken by housemates, like Phyna shouting “Who dey…?”, be added to the presentation.

Chichi also continued to sound a warning note that she was going to “drag” anyone who wanted to bring the Chamber back with a nonchalant attitude. We don’t know who she was referring to 👀 but Chizzy was definitely on board with all of her plans and wanted everyone to be involved in the creative process.

Remember Chizzy was one of the mainstays behind some of Wager’s creative pieces from last week? So we wonder if she made it her companion mainly to succeed in this week’s bet.🤔

Later in the day, Hermès also expressed its thoughts on the bet. He mentioned that key events that happened in the House needed to be highlighted, such as the conflict between task levels and some of the things they did as a group before the merger. He gave an example of Level’s anthems saying they should be included in the presentation.

The ideas seem to be everywhere at the moment and we wonder if the roommates will be able to make it on Friday. Well, only time will tell.

Adekunle, bella, Brian, Sensational, Hermes and Sheggz have been appointed and are subject to expulsion.

Last night, five Level Up housemates left Biggie’s house with two weeks left until the end of the show. Among them was Allysyn, who had formed a close relationship with the double HoH Hermes. Allysyn’s expulsion left Phyna reeking with guilt after she used her veto power to replace Chichi with Allysyn. The eviction left Hermes staring silently and grimly as he processed what had happened.

Since then, he has remained on his own and refrained from engaging with his roommates. In the morning he went to the Arena for a training session and had a lot of energy like the Hermes we know. After practice, he was seen in the living room as HoH Phyna assigned tasks to everyone. He silently continued his work and was in the kitchen doing the dishes by himself.

Once the chores were done, he again pulled out of the crowd and headed out into the garden. It was raining heavily outside, but that didn’t hold him back. Wearing only his underwear, Hermès was training in the rain. He was doing spinning kicks, side leg lifts, lunges and other impressive training moves.

Click here to watch Hermes talk to Allysyn about their ship:

When we thought he was done and going back inside, he started dancing. Some of the things Hermès is known for in the House are its unique vibes and dance moves. He showed off these moves in the garden, with rainwater adding music video vibes to his routine.

His session came to an abrupt end when HoH Phyna received a betting task briefing, put on a towel, and attended the meeting. He then put on a tracksuit and headed to the kitchen to prepare some food. He didn’t talk much while he cooked and randomly joined Chichi who was in the mood to sing. Hermès then decided to enjoy his meal by himself and once again kept it for himself.

When Biggie ordered the housemates into the garden, Hermes slowly and quietly entered, grabbed a pillow, and found himself a quiet place to sit. Phyna couldn’t let him sit quietly and started teasing him, calling him a stupid boy, and Groovy and Chichi joined in.

Will Allysyn’s expulsion affect Hermes’ game, or will he recover and head for the grand prize?

“I’m always thrilled to attend a Broadway opening, and see Hadesville Opening night in 2019 was a magical and unforgettable experience. Everything there was full of life. I sat behind Rachel Chavkin’s dad, who was overflowing with pride, and got to meet Rachel who was giving birth to a phenomenal show while carrying new life in her womb,” White said in an earlier statement. Beauty , love and promise, and I was moved to tears by my good friend, Dr André De Shields, and the whole company. I am delighted and honored to take on the role of Hermès and to be part of this beautiful production.”

“I am delighted that Lillias is stepping into this role. She is a total legend, has a smashing voice and will bring a grace and warmth to the role that is uniquely her own. Hadesville is a myth, and so we always felt that these characters could adapt to whoever plays them and take on new life and meaning with each new actor/spirit,” director Rachel Chavkin added. “I’m so proud to welcome a woman for the first time in the emblematic role of Hermès, our storyteller and guide. Like the Greek gods themselves, our actors change shape, size, color, tone, mood and doesn’t it makes the world more pleasant.”

It is over time that the Big Brother Level Up season draws to a close. In the penultimate nominations of the season, six of the 11 roommates still in contention to win the grand prize of a NOT100 million prizes were placed on the chopping block; Hermes, Adekunle, Bella, Dotun, Chichi, Sheggz, Rider Rachel were all asked to stand before Big Brother took an “unauthorized” break.

Anxiety was written all over the faces of the standing roommates, who all happened to be former Level 1 roommates, as they awaited their fate unsure of what Big Brother might do next. It turned out that Biggie wanted Head of House Phyna to consider everything and make her decision for backup and replacement.

Chichi saved, Allysyn sacrificed

So, to wrap up the nomination process, the head of House Phyna exercised his veto by saving Chichi and replacing her with Allysyn. Chichi couldn’t believe her luck as she dove back into the big red sectional sofa while Allysyn could only giggle at her debut in the eviction roll.

As already communicated previously, the nominations of Riders Chizzy and Rachel do not count because they are only in the game for the ride and not for the money. Another twist in today’s nominations was of recently evicted roommates becoming Biggie’s Tier 3 guests; Chomzy, Doyin and Eloswag who were also called into the newspaper room to name. It was just to keep them thinking they’re still in the game, but they’re not in the running for the ultimate prize either.

Here’s how the top 11 housemates were named:

ROOMMATE NOMINATION #1 APPLICATION #2 APPOINTMENT #3
Adekunle Sheggz bella dotun

dotun *Rider Rachel

Allysyne bella Sheggz Adekunle
Hermes Sheggz bella * Rider Rachel
Sensational Allysyne Chi-Chi dotun
Chi-Chi Sheggz Hermes bryan
HoH Phyna Sheggz bella Adekunle

This means Bella got 6 nominations, Sheggz, Adekunle and Hermes got 5 nominations, Chichi and Dotun got two, Allysyn, Bryann and Daniella got one nomination each. Although Rider Rachel also received five nominations, she is still not ready for a possible expulsion due to her status as a Rider.

HoH Phyna sacrificed Sheggz, Bella, and Adekunle before Big Brother took the opportunity to once again congratulate her on winning the coveted title of Head of House.

In his closing statement, Nominations Show Host Ebuka reminded Big Brother Naija Level Up fans that there’s no better time to show you’re a true fan than by keeping your favorite housemate in the game.

“As always with Big Brother, the more you look, the more you see,” Ebuka signed off.

After his first win on Day 9, Hermès found his way back to the Head of House crown after winning this week’s challenge. The challenge to win immunity for the week took place over two rounds. The first round was a fishing game; The housemates had to use a makeshift fishing rod and magnetic hooks to catch as many fish as possible in an imaginary stream. The top two male and female roommates who acquired the most number of fish with the most value advanced to the next round.

Chichi, Chomzy, Eloswag and Hermes were the top contenders who fought against Hermes for the title of Head of House.

Watch Hermes battle for immunity:

Hermès fishing for the HoH crown

For the next set of games, the top four housemates had to find the fish with the head of the house written on the back of a pond of 24 randomly placed fish. This challenge was difficult for the other contenders, except Hermès, which initially established itself as the 4th most successful roommate in the first round. Upon finding the fish, Biggie congratulated Hermes on his victory and asked him to select a roommate he would like to share the house manager’s room with. Hermès chose Allysyn, who accepted his offer but would not get immunity this week.

Sheggz retains house tail title

Before the Games began, Allysyn was relieved of her Tail of House title as Big Brother was happy with how she handled her punishment. Fellow Tail of House Sheggz retained the title; alongside outgoing head of house Dotun, he was unable to participate in the challenge, and as punishment Biggie gave Sheggz an apron to wear, and for the rest of the week the housemates must send Sheggz to make a race, and he must serve them. Failure to assign tasks to Sheggz will result in punishment for Level Up roommates.
