Big Brother: Hilda is Head of House
Tanzanian housemate in the on-going Big Brother Africa StarGame, Hilda, has been named Downville Head of House for next week.
The Tanzanian housemate, who is up for possible eviction Sunday, together with her partner Julio, was named after she won the Head of House task Friday.
For the Head of House task, Big Brother divided the Downville housemates into two groups and asked them to stand at a starting line where he gave them a mathematical calculation.
The housemates were to figure out the correct answer to the question and run to the correct answer.
After two rounds of that, Hilda was declared winner and became the Head of House, taking over from Ghanaian housemate Keitta.
The interesting twist however is that, Hilda, Julio and Zimbabwean pair Teclar and Menata are all up for possible eviction come Sunday.
The big question here is would Hilda be evicted Sunday or would she be exempted from eviction since she will start her job as Head of House Monday morning?
Sunday's eviction definitely holds the answer.
