Day 2 of BBNaija’s ‘Pepper Dem’ started off with an early morning exercise. We can agree that the Pepper Dem Housemates taught us a lesson or two on the importance of starting off your day with an early morning workout session. Thanks to instructor Mike!
The Housemates woke up to an early morning intense workout session with Mike. From the push-ups to the punching and the aerobics, Mike did not fail to show the men the importance of keeping fit. The Pepper Dem ladies were not left out too.
While the Housemates were taking workout notes from Mike, Tacha was seen having a lazy morning and sitting pretty in the garden. Well, let’s just say the Housemates served us fitness goals, while Tacha dished out lounging goals.
Ike could not seem to get his hands off KimOprah as they got busy with making breakfast for their fellow Housemates this morning. While he went on and on about how she was serving wife material goals, he put his hands around her waist. To show approval, perhaps? KimOprah responded to this by giving a subtle comment – “get your hands off me, they’re oily”, she said. Not sure what’s going on with these two but let’s stay glued to our screens to find out. They might just be the pair to give us our first Pepper Dem romance in the House.
The Relationship Counsellor
As other Housemates got busy getting to know each other, Seyi was also busy giving his two cents on how he has been able to keep his long-term relationship with his girlfriend. Interestingly, he made mention of the fact that he was a known playboy before meeting his longtime girlfriend. This left amused Tacha with nods and smiles as she listened with interest. Was she impressed? Does Seyi seem like the perfect boyfriend? From their conversation, Seyi could just be serving relationship goals to the other Housemates in the House.
Will this day unveil more heat from this spicy bunch? You bet!
A Steamy Jacuzzi Moment
After dinner, there seemed to be a spicy affair that had Mercy, Khafi, Isilomo,and Avala rocking their thongs to the jacuzzi. Staying true to the theme of the Season, perhaps? The Pepper Dem men will not easily forget the show that was put up by Mercy – which was followed up with “Mercy, have mercy” chants from the men in the House. Let’s just say she put the steam in the jacuzzi. We can’t wait to see more of the hot stuff the Pepper Dem ladies will dish out in the House.
Sleep was definitely far away from Tuoyo, Ike, Thelma, Khafi, Nelson, Frodd, Diane and Ellaas they stayed up at night for a karaoke session. The fun did not end in a hurry; they sang and danced in the garden to classic Nigerian songs, while also making beats on the bus prop.
Omashola’s midnight story was greeted with a ‘not interested’ response from Thelma, Dianeand Tuoyo. We wonder why. Diane also jumped on the story wagon by telling a story; and so did Thelma. We leave you guys to decide on whose story was the scariest.
Getting cold already? Frodd and Isilomo were seen cuddling beneath the sheets in the wee hours of the morning. Is this part of their ‘getting to know each other’ process? Will the Housemates still keep the fun levels up when things get extra spicy in the House?
Balls Up High
Today’s Task had the Housemates lifting balls up high while fending off the distraction.
Nelson and Ella were the last two standing in today’s in the first task of a two-part task. The first task called the Endurance Challenge was for each Housemate to hold a ball above his/her head with both arms stretched out as possible without bringing their arms down or resting it in any manner.
The task which was divided into two groups, had the gentlemen going up first as the heroes while the ladies played the part of the distractors. Going on for over 40 minutes, the task had all the male housemates each holding a ball up high while battling the antics put up by the female housemates to distract them.
It wasn’t easy as the ladies did a good job of distracting the guys by breaking into songs, chants and utilizing the subtle art of seduction to get them to drop the ball. Omashola and Ike were the first to be disqualified from the competition because their hands came down too low. In the end, it was a keen contest between Frodd and Nelson for the position of the last man standing. Nelson eventually stood tall with his ball held up high winning the Endurance Challenge.
On completion of the first task, the gentlemen were asked to move to the dining area where they were asked to select a cup of their choice on the table and later reveal the content. Frodd, Seyi, Omashola, Jeff and Tuoyo were among the lucky few with Bet9ja Coins in their cups.
Okay Ladies, Get Into Formation.
Shortly after, it was time for the ladies to undertake their task. Roles were reversed and this time, the ladies were the one holding balls up high while the gentlemen distracted them.
Kimoprah was the first to tap out, followed shortly by Thelma and eventually leaving Isilomo and Ella as the last two women standing. Ella outlasted Isilomo winning the challenge. An interesting part of the task was that the ladies broke the record set by the gentlemen by exceeding the one-hour mark.
Just like the gentlemen, the ladies filed into the Dining Area to select cups and reveal its content. Ella, Tacha, Diane and Avala were among the lucky few who found a Bet9ja coin underneath their selected cup.
With today’s task, the Pepper Dem gang are beginning to feel the heat. Do the Housemates have the strength to persevere? Watch and see!
A Win in Hand
It was all smiles for Housemates as a couple of them won Bet9ja Coins after the day’s task. After an intensive Endurance Challenge, ending the day with Bet9ja Coins in their hand made it all better.
Food caused a mild drama in the House for the second time running as Tacha and Thelma got into an altercation over fish today. Turns out Tacha dished out food to Thelma without adding fish. This resulted in Thelma confronting Tacha and accusing her of serving her beggarly meals.
Just recently Esther threw a fit and launched into a tirade about not having anything to eat after working effortlessly to make it because someone else ate it. Unlike that incidence where Mike apologized and tried to make it all better, this episode of food fight didn’t go that way. Tacha and Thelma kept going at each other with Tacha dishing out a slur of expletives.
Frodd couldn’t help but let the tears flow as he reminisced about what he went through during the audition and having to leave his recuperating mum at home. Fortunately for him, he had Mike and Isilomo consoling him with reassuring words. Not too long after, Omashola broke down briefly while talking to Khafi. Tried as he did to stop it, the tears still flowed.
Watch Frodd Breakdown in Tears.
Are the tears a strategy or a show of emotions? Time will tell.
