Viewers of the 2021 Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) are grumbling over a new twist introduced by the organisers of the reality show.
Biggie earlier scrapped the usual head of house (HoH) game and announced a new task titled the ultimate veto power game (UVPG).
He said the winner of the exercise would be immune from eviction and enjoy veto power to select the HoH for the week.
At the end of the exercise, Biggie had announced White Money, Queen, Pere, Saga, Nini, and Angel as housemates up for possible eviction for the week.
Queen, Saga, and Nini were thereafter sent packing from the show while Pere and Angel were asked to leave the house in what appeared to be a fake eviction.
Without the knowledge of other housemates, Angel and Pere were taken to a secret “white room” where it was announced that they were to play a game to earn a spot at the finale.
The move didn’t seem to have gone down well with fans of the two reality stars and some other viewers of the show.
The criticisms of the new twist took another dimension after the voting poll shows that Pere had 25.31% of votes while Angel had 14.63%.
Takings to Twitter to air their grievances, some fans wondered why the organisers would put up the twist after Pere had amassed enough votes to remain in the game.
Others threatened to shun the reality TV show altogether.
Pere’s media team also issued a statement via his Instagram page wherein it says that they have been thrown off-balance by the twist.
“The events of yesterday created so much uproar among our fans, neutrals, and even our competitors,” the statement read in part.
“The ripple effect of this event has thrown our voting team off-balance in terms of our preparedness for the final week of voting.
“Even though we feel unfairly at a disadvantage, we still believe it’s a twist and a game that will play out and eventually make our votes count.”
Pere’s media team also warned that: “It’s being rumoured that some of our supporters are planning on taking certain actions to express their anger and frustration.”

Biggie why treating pere this way? Despite robbïng him of his wins isn't it enough?
Now u're subjecting him to mental stress despite d fact dat it's obvious he beat Ang€l with over 11% vote tonight
This is just to tell the viewers that their votes dn't count#BBNaija#BBNaija6 pic.twitter.com/VRtIlglDEH

How do you explain that Pere did not make it to Top 5 despite leading Angel in the votes?? This game by Big Brother is bullshit.

Pere was a WILDCARD meaning, he wasn't meant to be in the game at the first place, but was inducted in the game as a puzzle. Now it's a top 5 thing and Angel who was fully qualified to be part of the game is given a lifeline against the WILDCARD. Understand This!! #BBNaija

I’m not a fan of Pere-
But the truth needs to be said.
What Big Brother did to Pere tonight is absolute nonsense.
Why make fans vote heavily if those votes will be meaningless?
Whatever the outcome- this twist is unfair to Pere and it’s a total shame on the Big Brother brand.

Pere's vote was not supposed to be shown on the chart. Biggie wanted to keep viewers in suspense, but unfortunately, they messed up & showed the voting poll.

This is unfair to Pere. This is also not fair to Angel even if she wins the game. Pere is going to be robbed if he loses. And if Angel wins she’ll always be remembered as the undeserved housemate who was unfairly pushed to the top. Who came up with this silly script?

Big brother should not have dragged the game abeg.. They should have done it lastnight after the show and free Pere and Angel.. Does he not care about their mental health.. This is really sad man

Whats this Top 6 nonsense i’m seeing everywhere? Because Angel lost they’re now talking about Top 6.if it was Pere in that position will there be any talk of top 6?
Put Pere back into the house and send Angel home. Thats the right thing and thats only what we’ll accept. #BBNaija

Una never Sabi this show. First before the eviction show angel was called in the DR. It was big brother that told her to bring us wm gist to pere so that viewers can hate him and see reasons for him to go. Biggie ur plans has failed #JusticeForPere #BBNaija

If we all can boycott #BBNaija next season and show them that they ain't oxygen, it will make A LOT OF SENSE
I'm sure we can do it if we're really tried of injustice and unfairness
You know how we all stood up during EndSARS? YEAH
