Day 17 of the Big Brother “Pepper Dem” Reunion show saw host, Ebuka sit with lovers and couples.
Ike and Mercy
Beginning with the most prominent couple among the Pepper Dem housemates; Ike told Ebuka that he knew Mercy was ‘the one,’ about two weeks into the show stressing that he had met Mercy during the auditions.
“Even if Big Brother don’t take me, I will leave with something,” he said, in reference to Mercy.
Mercy noted that she felt something for him by the second or third week. Explaining that she initially went into the house with the mindset of playing the game alone, but after a few conversations, she noticed that Ike was different from the sort of men she is used to.
What’s up with the consistent break-up and make up?
Mercy pointed at cultural differences, stressing that many things Ike categorises as normal, are not normal to Nigerians, as well as herself.
Why do you keep unfollowing each other on social media?
“He’s childish,” Mercy responds. In his defence, Ike stated that for anyone who does anything to portray him in a different light or comment on something that ridicules him, his response is usually to unfollow such a person.
In Diane’s comment, she explained that she has a problem with Ike always blocking Mercy, as he doesn’t always need to react that way.
“Someone needs to grow up,” she stressed.
Diane and Elozonam
Elozonam said he felt socially awkward in the house and Diane made him feel comfortable. He also stated that he knew about the love square thing going on with Diane, which claimed he understood.
On the other hand, Diane noted that she liked Elozonam but wasn’t sure of how he felt about her. They agreed to wait and see how things pan out, outside the house.
Diane described Elozonam as unforgiving.
“I felt like he let people mess with his head.”
Elozonam complained that Diane always made him feel like second fiddle, adding that she had too many options and that made him uncomfortable.
Ebuka then brought in Nollywood star, Mawuli Gavor asking “How much of a problem was Mawuli in this?”
Diana walked away from the set.
For Chinedu Okafor, its all about making an impact with words, creating a profound impression on the audience with the intended narrative.
