South African Housemate Keagan has won the Big Brother StarGame!
After 91 long days in the house, the 22 year old intern manager, has finally hit the jack pot, winning the prize money of $300, 000.
His journey started in Downville with partner Lee who was evicted on the same night he was upgraded to Upville.
This means that South Africa has won Big Brother for the first time.
The South African housemate managed to beat off stiff competition from 34 other housemates including strong contenders from Upville.
Kenya’s Prezzo was the runner up and was rewarded with a ONE Campaign ambassador slot.
He was also told that he would be attending Jay Z’s concert in the United States soon.
Here’s how Africa voted for the finalist:
Namibia: Lady May
South Africa: Keagan
Sierra Leone: Talia
Zimbabwe: Lady May
Rest of Africa: Keagan
Total: Keagan = 7; Lady May = 2; Prezzo =2, Talia = 2, Kyle = 1, Wati = 1. (Total: 15 Votes)
From the nominations announced, Lady May was leading with five votes followed by Kyla with three votes, Goldie, Prezzo, Junia and Keagan had two votes each while Keitta, Alex, Malonza and Jannette had one vote each
The housemates gathered in the lounge waiting for Big Brother to reveal who will be put up for eviction. In alphabetical order, Biggie mentioned Goldie, Junia, Keagan, Kyle, Lady May and Prezzo.
The head of the house has to save one housemate from eviction, but being part of the housemates put on the eviction list, Keagan (this week’s head of the house) had to replace himself.
Keagan found himself in a dilemma when asked to name the housemate he wished to replace him. He started by calling names already on the eviction list but had to later settle for Malonza.
The battle in this week’s eviction is between Goldie, Junia, Kyle, Lady May, Malonza and Prezzo… who will Africa save?
It was a hard time for Goldie to reveal her replacement, when she called out Keitta’s name he looked surprised but calm and went straight to pack his things.
Goldie feeling guilty went on her knees to beg Barbz as she had to choose between her man Prezzo and Barbz who were on the nomination list, Barbz in calmness and hurt accepted her apology.
The anchor of the show IK, simply called Keitta and told him he wasn’t leaving the show, instead Barbz was evicted leaving just one South Africa (Keagan) in the house.
Now Keitta knows he has to leave no stones on-turned as he knows anybody can nominate him at any time.
