2. Who are the BBN 2021 Wildcards?

The bbnaija games began as soon as the contestants entered the Big Brother house, as they were given a task to fish out two contestants who were fake housemates and were known as Wildcards. The Wild cards were to go about their day-to-day activities in the house without the housemates having a clue.

This task lasted for one week, as the contestants were asked to predict who the two wild cards were on Sunday the 1st of August, 2021 and they lost. The Consequence for the housemate failing this task, by not guessing who the wild cards were correctly, was that the two fake housemates (wild cards) will remain in the house to compete for the N90 Million grand prize and they were also given the power to nominate who will be up for eviction, on Monday 2nd August 2021. 

The 2 wild cards (fake housemates) were Maria and Pere and I must say that they played their game well, as the housemates did not have the slightest idea that they were the wild cards. 

The contestants that the housemates assumed were the wildcards were liquorose and Jaypaul. Some housemates also guessed Beatrice to be the wild card. 

3. BBNaija 2021 head of house

Every week a task is given to the contestant and the winner of each task will be the head of house for the week. 

The first head of house in Big Brother Naija 2021 season 6, ‘shine ya eyes’ was Peace. On the 26th of July, 2021, the housemates were given a task to play, this task can be known to be a game of luck and the female housemate Peace emerged as the winner and the first head of house in Big brother Naija season 6 with Yousef as her assistant, selected by her. 

On Monday the 2nd of August, Boma emerged as the head of house with Jackie B as his assistant, selected by him. 

They have both played their role as the head of house well, and we are looking forward to who will win the next head of house game and how they will take charge of the housemates and the big brother house. 

However, what the viewers are anticipating the most is the bbn Saturday night party, which fortunately is tonight. This Saturday night’s party will be the second party held in the big brother house, it is most anticipated because this is the second week of the housemates being in the house and they are now more settled and comfortable unlike the first week and the first Saturday night party. 

The Big Brother Naija 2021 reality show can be watched on GOTV channel 29 and DSTV channel 198, also by downloading the DSTV now app on your mobile device.
