After a fortnight in the game, Beatrice, Yerins and Niyi have become the first housemates to be evicted from the ‘Shine Ya Eye’ season.
Yerins was evicted first, while Niyi and Beatrice followed suit.
The reality show’s host Ebuka Obi-Uchendu announced this on Sunday during the live eviction show.
While it was certain that at least one of the Nominated Housemates was going to be on their way out, nothing prepared them for the fact that three Housemates would bid the Big Brother House goodbye.
Beatrice’s nomination came on the heels of her spoiler tactics during the Housemate’s hunt for the two Wildcards — a strategy that probably seems a little rash to her now. Yerins’ status as “polymath ” didn’t provide him with the right skill set necessary to win the game.
Then came the second shock — new arrivals.
A total of four new Housemates were introduced into the game on Sunday night.
It’s worth noting, however, that the new Housemates have had to spend these past two weeks in isolation before they were ushered into the BBNaija house.
