After the shock of seeing three of their number leave on Sunday, M-NetÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Big Brother Amplified Housemates had to re-focus on another set of nominations on Monday (11 July). Thirteen Housemates have left and thirteen remain Ã¢â‚¬â€œ and five are up for eviction again this week.
Bernadina, Lomwe, Vina, Mumba and Zeus all found themselves in the firing line after Head of House, Vimbai, saved Wendall and put Mumba up in his place.
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Vimbai didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t waste much time in saving her fellow Zimbabwean Ã¢â‚¬â€œ and love interest Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Wendall when she headed to the Chat Room, but the big surprise was that she replaced him with Mumba instead of Karen. She and the Nigerian have not seen eye-to-eye since Karen gave Wendall a massage. Vimbai had also nominated Karen for the last two weeks running, so it was a surprise that she didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t take the opportunity to put her back in the firing line.
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ During the nomination sessions, the ladies stuck to their strategy of nominating the men. Most surprising was KimÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s nomination of Lomwe, with whom she has shared some intimate moments. She told Big Brother that he is Ã¢â‚¬Å“too reservedÃ¢â‚¬Â, making it hard for her to trust him.
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Both Vimbai and Vina nominated Zeus Ã¢â‚¬â€œ the former because of the way his dalliance with Karen showed disregard for his girlfriend outside the House and the latter because she felt he was Ã¢â‚¬Å“usingÃ¢â‚¬Â her fellow Nigerian.
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Kim, Bernadina, Millicent, Mumba, Vina, Karen and Sharon O all nominated Wendall for a variety of reasons Ã¢â‚¬â€œ mostly, it seems, his strategy of keeping a low profile while being extremely competitive has caught up with him.
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Millicent, Hanni, Vimbai and Karen are the only women who nominated other women. Unsurprisingly, Karen and VimbaiÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s ongoing feud saw them nominate each other.
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Millicent nominated Vina and Hanni chose Bernadina alongside her nomination of Zeus.
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Lomwe based his decision on the people he has interacted least with, naming Hanni and Mumba.
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Zeus nominated Kim and Vina (who coincidentally returned the favour!).
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Luclay nominated Bernadina and Zeus, while Wendall named Zeus and Vina as his choices.
