The cat is finally out of the bag as promised! Big Brother has unveiled the two wild cards of the season.
Recall that in a surprising twist on the second launch show, Big Brother Instructed the housemates to uncover the wild cards before Sunday. Show host, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu later revealed that the wild cards will be unveiled to viewers on Thursday.
If the housemates guess the wild cards correctly, the game ends for them. If they do not, the wild cards will continue in the competition for the N90 million prize.
After days of speculations and accusations in the House, the two were finally revealed after the Diary Room session where the Housemates were invited to make their predictions.
Both Wildcards did a good job of blending in with the rest of the Housemates in the House. For Maria, it was all about actively participating in the Task and making sure her voice is heard.
Pere took a more laid-back approach in the House. Right from his bromance with the rest of the guys to casually having conversations with the rest of the Housemates and even on course to building a romantic alliance with Jackie B, he had his cover well secured.
His military experience must have come into play here. On a few occasions, both Wildcards spearheaded conversations about who the possible Wildcards were and pointed out other Housemates as likely suspects. Talk about throwing people off your scent.
Maria was particularly surprised to find out there was another Wildcard in the House during her conversation with Biggie in the Diary Room.
When asked if she knew who it was, she correctly guessed Pere. She was bothered that she had to lie and maintain a front with the other Housemates but she was confident she pulled it off.
Pere on the other hand was glad when he heard the revelation of another Wildcard and guessed it was either Maria or Nini.
