The first eviction of the 2021 Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) did not hold on Sunday night after housemates failed their task of identifying the wildcards among them.


Last Sunday, Biggie, the instructive voice behind the show, said there are two wildcards in the house.

The wildcards are two fake housemates among the 22 ushered into the reality show. They are to be identified by their colleagues.

BBNaija housemates for each season should normally be 20 but 22 were announced to the surprise of the viewers.


The housemates were expected to figure out who the wildcards are to get them evicted during tonight’s eviction show.

On Thursday, Biggie had revealed Maria and Pere as the actual wildcards.

But during eviction show, majority of the housemates voted Liqurose and Jaypaul.


Ebuka Obi-Uchendu thereafter asked the actual wildcards to stand up, to the surprise of other housemates.

The wildcard is the first twist on the ‘Shine Ya Eye’ house.

The development means the two fake housemates are now eligible to contest with their remaining colleagues for the show’s N90 million grand prize.

Nomination for the next eviction of the show is expected to commence on Monday.
