Big Brother Africa : Phil and Jen Evicted

The third eviction show of M-Net’s BIG BROTHER REVOLUTION (Sunday 27 September, live at 19:00 CAT) provided more drama than ever before as two housemates left: Mozambique’s Jen of her own volition and Uganda’s Phil for not gathering enough votes from Africa. With Jen making a voluntary exit from the series due to personal reasons, she was the first to depart the Big Brother house this week, saying her goodbyes and meeting series host IK on stage where she was also met by her father. After her departure, when IK took viewers inside the house to ask Kevin to reveal that he had replaced Edward with Phil during the nominations on Monday, the announcement was met with silence as the housemates processed the news. Edward, obviously relieved, simply smiled while Phil trudged off to pack his bags. When the time came to announce who would be leaving this week, Erastus and Phil stood and waited to receive the news. When IK read the name “Phil”, the man in question looked bemused as he greeted his housemates for the last time and headed out the double doors at the bottom of the garden. Kevin was left looking haunted as he sat motionless on the couch, while Yacob pondered the effects of Phil’s departure in silence. IK didn’t waste any time in asking Phil about his time spent with Liz over the last few days. “We’re cool we’re just hanging out,” was the Ugandan’s response. When asked if there was anyone in the house he had been particularly close to, he told IK that there were two people Elizabeth and Liz. IK also asked him about his statement that he considered Big Brother to be a “non-lethal threat”. “I meant that I didn’t think that Big Brother could get me here so soon,” he said with a shrug. He told IK that he didn’t consider his eviction a big shock as he had had the sense the entire week that Kevin had put him up for eviction. “There was no beef – he was just playing the game,” said Phil. Before he left the stage for good, IK and Phil appeared on the screens inside the house and told the housemates about the new game element which Big Brother has introduced – the ‘Molotov Cocktail’. All evicted housemates have the opportunity to ‘throw’ a different cocktail at another housemate inside the house as their parting shot each week. There will be 20 ‘cocktails’ to choose from, which range from cleaning bathrooms to making coffee. This week's Molotov Cocktail read: “All the clothes and personal belongings of one housemate must be packed in a suitcase and removed from the House for one whole week.” IK asked Phil: "Who do you want to throw the Molotov Cocktail at?" Phil declared that he had no doubt in his mind, naming Kevin as the recipient of this week’s cocktail. Soon after that, Big Brother asked Kevin to pack all his clothes, including those he was wearing, and deliver his suitcase to the store room. It seems Kevin is going to spend a week in the house in a towel! The show was as action-packed as usual, kicking off with a stunning ballroom routine from the Mambo Kings before IK introduced Namibia’s best-selling Kwaito star Gazza for the first of two rocking performances. Viewers were then reminded of the highlights of the past week in the house, including the revelation of the Twin Twist, the meeting of the men and women for the first time, discussions about alliances, nominations, the first Head of House election, the burgeoning romance in the house and the housemates’ fantastic Thriller video task.
