The BBNaija All Stars Week 9 HOH Game
The Week 9 Head of House game in the ongoing BBNaija All Stars show was a game of endurance.
The housemates were tasked with standing on two footstools attached to a makeshift wall. Anyone who gets tired and comes down from their footstool is disqualified. This means the last “person” standing wins the HOH game.
Mercy, Venita, Cross, and Cee C were among the first housemates to come down. Soma quickly followed them. This left Pere, Angel, Adekunle, and Ilebaye standing.
The quartet really went at each other, refusing to give up (as what was at stake was not just the HOH title but also a shot at the finale).
Pere tried playing “mind games” to get his fellow contestants to give up. He kept referring to his “military” past and saying he has a record of 8 hours 42 minutes in similar endurance tasks.
It appeared he got to Adekunle, because the king of the Islanders (Adekunle) gave up soon after Pere’s antics. This left the trio of Pere, Angel, and Ilebaye in the game.
Biggie made things more difficult
After over two hours of endurance hanging, Biggie instructed the remaining three housemates in the game to take off one of their legs from the footstool where it rested. So, they were now to continue hanging on just one leg.
After another 20+ minutes of this, Pere saw that he couldn’t continue. He tried getting Ilebaye to give up by promising to make her one of his BFFs if he won the game. But Ilebaye wasn’t buying what he was selling.
Then Pere gave up, leaving Angel and Ilebaye in the game.
Then Angel found that she couldn’t continue. Soma did his best to will her on, but she just couldn’t continue. So, Angel dropped, and Ilebaye was crowned the winner of the HOH game.
The official BBNaija X (formerly Twitter) account congratulated Ilebaye with the words:
“Gen Z baddie, Ilebaye is the latest and final #BBNaijaAllStars head of house, waltzing straight to the finale!“
