Feature: The Girls Wear The Pants In Ruby!

The Ruby guys need to up their game and stop piggy-backing on the girls. Endurance, perseverance, resilience and determination will take you far in the Big Brother Africa game. When unlikely contenders Pokello, Natasha, Koketso, Selly and Cleo made it to the top five of the Head of House endurance Task in the Ruby House, it was like a dream.

No one would have guessed that these girls would be the last ones standing on this Task especially with their weaves, mohawks, makeup and sunglasses getting soaked in water. This proves that the Housemates are getting desperate to proceed in The Chase. If the guys don’t step it up any time soon, we will have an all-girl Finale.

No one anticipated spending half the day waiting for the eventual winner of the Head of House challenge in the Ruby House. Though three of the girls couldn’t go all the way, Cleo and Selly soldiered on.

To prove her excitement on how far she had come, Natasha started singing and dancing without losing sight of the battle she was fighting alongside the other sisters.

At some point, Pokello was threatened by a bee, which wouldn’t leave her alone, could be all that styling gel on her head. “Sulu please get rid of it. I’m allergic,” she cried, her hand still suspended on the rope. Now, that’s competition. It’s a pity she couldn’t linger on but her effort must have been enough to prove to her Housemates that she indeed in it to win it, contrary to their belief.

Beverly sat this one out, thanks to the Power of No Task, so she found it befitting to offer the ninja some pap or tea because the last two contenders; Selly and Cleo would not give up the fight. They had been on the challenge for over two hours and none of them was ready to give up. It was a case of so near yet so far for Cleo who was disqualified at the eleventh hour resulting in Selly being the eventual winner for the second time running.

One thing is certain; the girls have the resilience and stamina to go far in this game. It’s just a matter of time before they oust the guys out of The Chase.
