The 2019 BBNaija Pepper Dem reality TV show has had its first day which was filled with revelations and tension building.
Here’s a recap of everything that went on during Day 1 of the show:
Off Goes The Alarm
The housemates were given a loud awakening by Biggie after they had their welcoming party and stayed up late into the night.
Ike, Mike, Jackye, and Omashola started their day engaging in an interesting discussion about the business of boxing and their favourite boxers.
Get Your Fit On
The housemates did not neglect their fitness as Tuoyo took the lead in a morning workout shortly after waking up. The fitness coach and part time stripper wasn’t going to slack off on his regimen due to the show. Other housemates joined in later for a workout under the rain.
The trio of Mike, Avala and KimOprah had a heart to heart where they revealed some hitherto unknown truths about themselves.
Avala revealed that she has a 5-year-old daughter who stays with her mom.
Kim-Oprah shared how she lost her dad at a tender age with only fond memories of going to the zoo with him left to her.
Mike talked about how he always wanted to be a professional athlete, before shedding light on his marriage of five years and the cigar business he opened in 2015.
A cause for conflict erupted in the form of food disputes. Esther expressed she was upset when food she made was eaten without her. “You didn’t say you wanted to eat noodles and you came to dish it,” She complained. Mike however apologized to her.
Ella also complained of that one of the Housemates ate her well-prepared noodles and omelette.
Head of House
The Pepper Dem Housemates have picked Jeff as their Head of House.
Housemates were assigned the Task of selecting the Head of House by spending the day getting to know each other. The reward, at the end of the day was that the most deserving Housemate gets position of Head of House.
The task while simple had severe consequences if a HoH wasn’t picked before lights out.
The HoH gets the honour of sitting on the Head of House Seat, a Badge and 500 Bet9ja Coins. The HoH also enjoys the luxury of a tastefully furnished Head of House Bedroom.
The Task which was unusually quite simple was on a note left on the table by Biggie shortly after he sent all the Housemates out of the House. That wasn’t the only thing Biggie did. He also hid 42 Bet9ja Coins in the House.
The search for the coins began almost immediately after the Housemates toured the HoH’s bedroom.
The search resulted in the Housemates turning the House upside down as they scampered to find them.
The note, which was read by Tuoyo started off congratulating Kimporah on winning the first Veto Power Game of Chance and was asked to guard it even though she might not have the power to Save and Replace.
As the Housemates select Jeff as Head of House, will they rue their decision?
“I am a virgin”. It was all about Jackye and her “man” when she gave us some spicy relationship gist we won’t forget in a hurry. “I am in a meaningful relationship” says Jackye and her man gives her everything she needs to sour and fly. She gave us a quite a lot about her relationship which has lasted six years so far and according to her, she loves being in a lasting relationship and she wants to build an empire with her man.
Seyi was not left out of the conversation as he shared his history with women and how meeting his girlfriend has helped curb his ‘excesses’. According to him, he has a good thing going on with his babe and it has kept him from flirting or cheating.
We can’t confirm if Thelma was sifting through Jackye’s relationship talks but at some point, she asked Jackye how old her man was. Jackye responds to that was “he’s much older than I am”. She said after a pause.
