As expected, viewers were looking out for which of the housemates get nominated for eviction after Ebuka Obi-Uchendu announced that the five newly introduced housemates, Venita, Elozonam, Enkay, Joe and Cindy, will escape nomination for their first full week in the house.

A new twist for eviction nominations
Biggie ignited a twist in the contest for a grand prize of N60million when he grouped the remaining 18 housemates into two – Crusitopias (Green colour) and The Icons (Red colour).
This new twist means all the housemates will henceforth play all the Big Brother Naija Games in their selected Teams. Housemates don’t get to change camps and Team Challenges will be designed to reward the winning Team and punish the losing Team.
No longer will they have the usual Nomination process of putting up fellow Housemates up, instead they will be having Nomination Challenges. The losing team of the Nomination Challenge will automatically have all the team members up for possible Eviction. This also affects the Wager Task. The winning Team will have weekly supplies while the losing Team will have nothing.
Here’s how the housemates were grouped
Red (The Icons)
Cindy, Elozonam, Enkay, Frodd, Ike, Khafi, Omashola, Sir Dee, Tacha
Diane, Esther, Gedoni, Jackye, Joe, Mercy, Mike, Seyi, Venita
Aftermath of Jeff’s eviction
Meanwhile, after a heated Eviction Live Show which saw Jeff taking a bow from the Pepper Dem House, Housemates felt it was time to settle old score and set off on a new course as they still have a week filled with activities to be concerned about.
Having been saved from eviction, Omashola had a one on one chat with Frodd in the Head of House room. The chat which was quite deep had Omashola clear the air with Frodd over their shared affection for Venita. He told Frodd that they should not allow a woman to come between them. He also let the ex-HoH know that he isn’t the type to keep making advances to a lady who has said no so if Frodd wanted to shoot his shot with Venita, he is free to do so.
In the same vein, Jackye had a moment after the eviction and she turned to Mike for reassurance. Jackye, who shed a few tears in her conversation with Mike, was worried that people were going to view her differently after her chat with Ebuka. Mike, however, thought differently as he assured her that everything is going to be fine and she shouldn’t worry about what she has no control over.
