Feature: Paranoia At Its Best!

Paranoia has become the order of the day in the Big Brother House. Game plans, strategy, betrayal and jealousy have been ruling the House these past weeks.

It's obviously because the Chasemates are smelling the sweet dollars already. It's just a few weeks to the Finale and while some are getting friendlier with each other, others would rather retreat and keep to themselves.

We can almost trace this paranoia back to the time when Bimp put up Bassey for possible Eviction in Week 8. The Sierra Leonean kept bugging Bimp silently about his decision. He actually told every and anyone who cared to listen that he was certain that Bimp had put him up and he was right. It wasn't long before Angelo was next in line, shaking like a leaf that Elikem could have put him up.

Maybe it was because Angelo learnt the hard way during Sulu's tenure as HoH. Well, it is Bimp's head that Elikem has placed neatly on the chopping block.

This time around, the Ethiopian Chasemate has no doubt that Elikem sacrificed him this week. We all know that the Ghanaian HoH did just that but he's obviously in an awkward position especially after Bimp approached him about it. Well, Elikem held his own and told Bimp exactly what he thought about being the House and the role he is supposed to play.

Earlier in the week, we saw Oneza distancing themselves from everyone else and they were put up for possible Eviction this week. The pair were clearly not in touch with the rest of the Chasemates but suddenly changed and Wednesday evening. They prepared everyone dinner and this morning, they woke up to their laundry and Oneal was spotted mopping the lounge floors.

We also saw HoH Elikem trying to cheat his way through the Power of No challenge this week but he was quickly stopped in his tracks, which led to him being banned from contesting for Head of House. That's how desperate the Chasemates are at this stage of the game.

Anyway, this is normal towards the end of the game. The fact is, it's difficult not to talk about Evictions, Nominations and of course the Finale but Biggie issued a stern warning against conspiracy so this makes things even worse.

May the best man or woman win. Which Chasemate is the most paranoid and why?

  1. Its obviously Feza and Oneal. They think everybody has conspired to nominate them simply because its wat themselves have been doing. Its quite funny to hear Oneal who claimed to be intelligent saying authoritatively dat d plan to put dem up was hatched either in d Jacuzzi or in the bedroom. But in actual fact, other housemates don't even discuss dem talk less of conspiring against them. Talking about wat Y̶̲̥̅̊o̶̲̥̅̊и̣̣̣̣̥ do to others is wat Y̶̲̥̅̊o̶̲̥̅̊и̣̣̣̣̥ expect or suspect dem to be doing to u.

  2. Oneza of cos..
