This week’s Head of House Challenge involved a Game of throwing. One by one, each Housemate stepped forward to the stool where 22 cups of water were placed. The person with the most accurate throw(s) whose ball entered the cup and stayed there became the HOH for the week.
The First Round
The first Housemate to go was Mike which got it on a second try, then went Khafi who tried it before the buzzer was sounded but made it on the second try also same with Elozonam, Venita, Mercy, Omashola and Cindy, but theirs were on a first attempt, except Frodd whose ball jumped off the cup.
The Second Round
Cindy, Mike, Seyi, Venita, Khafi and Tacha got out of the Game after failed attempts while Elozonam got it right after the second attempt. Mercy and Ike got it right at the first try and Omashola too was also lucky at his first attempt.
The Third Round
Ike, Elozonam, Mercy and Omashola were the final four left and were ready to fight the battle of the HOH challenge. On his third attempt, Elozonam got it right with Ike and Mercy getting it right again. Sadly, Omashola eased out after three failed attempts.
The Fourth Round
After a series of three more rounds, no winner emerged. The finalists Elozonam, Ike and Mercy got it right despite the removal of four cups by Biggie’s Ninja,These guys were really determined. This made Biggie decide to remove four more cups. But after this, none of them got it right.
For this round out of kindness from Biggie’s heart they were allowed to move a bit closer to the table but Elozonam failed after trying three times and it was the end of his Game. For Mercy and Ike, it was a fight to the finish, as their throws were accurate again.
A Joint Win
Mercy and Ike were given the chance to decide who should wear the Immunity privilege. As a caring ‘lover’, Mercy told him that she was willing to let go. For this reason, Ike and Mercy were declared, for the first time, the joint Heads of House. They also got 250 Bet9ja Coins. Congratulations to the Icy pair! As they are popularly known as they emerge as the first joint housemates to ever win the HOH.
Seyi won the VPH for week ten and the house went back to the normal nomination process where each housemate would be called to the diary section to nominate two housemates they want up for possible eviction on Sunday. Venita, Omashola, Frodd, Elozonam and Seyi were nominated but the VPH holder Seyi replaced himself with Khafi.
