Of the Housemates that made it to Week 11, Bernadina, Zeus and Mumba became the three that would not continue the Amplified road any further.
Bernadina’s name was the first to be called out and she left the House after embracing and kissing fellow Housemates. Once on stage, she was shown the identity of those that put her on the chopping block. Luclay was one Housemate she trusted, but was nominated by, hence she did not hesitate to mention his name as Housemate she would blow a fuse at.
All but one Housemate will receive messages from home. Luclay will miss out on an opportunity of hearing from home, courtesy of having stabbed Bernadina in the back.
Zeus became the second Housemate to be Evicted, and was quickly labeled as “the most faithful man in Botswana” by IK on stage. Zeus’ vehement refusal to pursue romance with Karen in the House – saying he has a woman he loves and cares for back home – earned him that honour.
Once shown who had nominated him, Zeus blew a fuse at Wendall. The Zimbabwean is to wear a floral swimming cap for the entire week in execution of his fuse.
Mumba was the third and final Housemate to be Evicted on Sunday, 17 July. Kim was in tears and Karen visibly distraught, though she did not say a word. Her face painted a picture of resignation and even Vina was lost for words in trying to console her.
Of the Housemates that remained in the House, Karen should feel the most robbed. Her love interest and friend were both evicted in one week and there was nothing she could do about it.
Mumba’s fuse was blown at Luclay; he is to walk backwards for the whole of Week 12. A double-blow for him as he would also not be hearing from home, courtesy of Bernadina’s fuse.
As soon as Vimbai was named Head of House, many Housemates – including Karen – were convinced she would put Karen on the chopping block and at risk of being evicted. The two have been at loggerheads since the Housemates were reunited in the Tails House. Though she did not have Karen Evicted, Vimbai’s Save and Replace delivered arguably the most devastating blow to Karen, to date. Both Zeus and Mumba were the closest Housemates to Karen in the House and their departure must have hurt more than all the insults she has had to endure about her fake boobs and the fights she had with Luclay put together.
