In this article, we’ll highlight what ‘Wildcards’ are, their role in the house, and other things you need to know about “BBNaija Wildcards”.
Wildcards are fake housemates of the show
Originally, the BBNaija housemates for each season should be 20. However, 22 housemates were announced to the surprise of the fans.
In turn, the organisers announced that two of the housemates are actually fake contestants of the show. Fans are actually excited about this as it is the first twist of the Shine Ya Eye season.
Housemates are unaware of who the Wildcards are
Just like the fans, the housemates do not know the Wildcards among them and are to go about their day in the house without having a clue.
On Sunday, the housemates will have to figure out who the Wildcards are, in order to get them evicted from the show.
If housemates are able to correctly identify the Wildcards among them, the fake contestants will be evicted this week on Sunday during the live eviction show.
However, if the housemates do not correctly identify the Wildcards, the fake contestants will have to remain in the show and compete for the grand prize worth N90 million.
Well, there’s more to the twist that Shine Ya Eye season has presented to fans.
If the Wildcards still remain in the game by Sunday, the housemates will be given an exclusive power to nominate on Monday.
The two ‘Wildcard’ housemates will be revealed to the fans in a special Diary Session later today, Thursday, July 29, at 3:00 pm (WAT). So make sure you don’t miss!
With this, the fans are left to keep guessing who the Wildcards might be.
