Final Diary: Goodbye Africa!

After a wonderful 91 days in the Big Brother House, the Chasemates bid final adieu to Africa!

Cleo - "I'm nervous and excited about tonight. It's not just me though. Everyone is beside themselves with excitement. We have all packed and are taking in our last moments in the House. We don't have any speculations about tonight. Whatever happens, happens. As much as I want to win, I feel like whoever takes it deserves it as much as I do. What I will miss the most about my Big Brother experience is definitely speaking to you Biggie. I will also miss being kept busy, as well as our weird wake up calls. I will also miss my fellow Housemates, as well as the Tasks. I would like to thank everyone that voted for me during my stay here. Africa lets unite and stand up for what we believe in. I love you all!"

Dillish - "I'm anxious and want to see how the night unveils itself. I can't wait to see the crowd, as well as familiar faces. Everyone's happy, but, as well as throughout my stay. We don't know what’s going to happen tonight. Are there going to be any surprises? All we know is we'll see the other Housemates who were Evicted, as well as our families. I have learnt to be super patient and to always take a step back in volatile situations. I will miss talking to you Biggie. I will also miss the Tasks, the Party Zone, the treats, as well as the punishments. I will never, ever forget this experience. Thank you Africa for keeping me in the House. God bless you all."

Beverly - "I don't know what to expect tonight. I've enjoyed every moment in this House. The final week has been amazing, even though I was limping. I don’t have any regrets about anything I did in this House because whatever you saw is the real me. Every kind of Beverly - in one - came out in this House. I'm honored to have been chosen to experience this. You don't understand how much this means to me. Being Swapped was definitely a low moment. Another was when Bimp, Angelo and Nando left. Every moment in this House has been incredible. I can't pick out a particular moment. Even sleeping in this House was fun! I would like to thank everyone who has watched from Day 1. Thank you Africa. It's your prayers that brought me this far. Forward ever and backward never! I can't wait to make Africa proud."

Elikem - "I feel like I've played the game the best I could. I wouldn't have done anything more or anything less. I'm only human and of course I will make mistakes. I think I lived up to my full potential during my stay in the House. Being saved by Africa motivated me to play the game till the end, without a doubt. I would like to thank Africa for having my back throughout. I showed off my talents, my laziness, my serious nature, my fun side and everything else in between. I showed off who I am during my Chase race. My Strike was definitely my lowest moment. I should have been quiet the whole time my altercation with Nando happened, because I was not brought up that way. I was so disappointed in myself. In hindsight, I deserved that Strike because I should have just kept quiet. My highest moment is definitely being in the Top 5 and being the first Ghanaian to do so. Thank you Africa for Saving me. In closing, I will say I'm definitely overwhelmed by the entire experience. I have no words."

Melvin - "We've been waiting so long for this day and it's finally here! The anxiety is unexplainable. I'm trying to stay positive and strong. We're all getting ready and hoping for the best. The atmosphere in the House is definitely bittersweet. We're excited, but we're also sad this is our last day in the House. I've grown due to my experiences here in this House. I will carry a lot of lessons to the outside world. I've learnt you cannot please everybody and have also shared this with my fellow Chasemates. I will miss my fellow Housemates, talking to you Biggie, as well as the entire experience itself. My fellow Housemates are like family to me. Thank you for affording me the opportunity to be a part of The Chase. Also, thank you Africa for having my back. One love, one blood, one Africa!"
