BBNaija Week 1 Nomination (Voting Poll) July 26, 2021 (Housemates Nominated for Eviction)
The housemates were given a task to identify the two housemates among them. If the housemates are able to identify the two housemates correctly, they will be evicted from the show. However, if the housemates are unable to identify both housemates, they will be allowed to compete for the grand price of 90 million naira.
Maria and Pere were revealed as the Wildcards of the BBNaija Shine Ya Eye House. 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 performed an excellent job at fitting in with the other Housemates. Maria’s goal was to actively participate in the Task and ensure that her voice was heard. In the House, Pere adopted a more relaxed attitude. He had his cover well protected, from his bromance with the other males to casually holding discussions with the other Housemates and, of course, forming a love alliance with Jackie B. His military experience has to have had a role in this. Both Wildcards led discussions regarding who the prospective Wildcards were on a few occasions, pointing out other Housemates as likely possibilities.
During her chat with Biggie in the Diary Room, Maria was particularly startled to learn that there was another Wildcard in the House. She accurately guessed Pere when asked whether she knew who it was. She was disturbed by the fact that she had to lie and put on a brave face in front of the other Housemates, but she felt confident in her ability to do so. Pere, on the other hand, was relieved to learn of another Wildcard, which he assumed was Maria or Nini.
