“Kemen, please step away. There’s a new champion in the house,” sounded Biggie’s voice, as he announced ThinTallTony as winner of the Friday Nights’Arena Games.
ThinTallTony breezed through the seven stage games, finishing at a record time of 1:56 seconds. Hot on his heels were Marvis, who recorded a time of 2:10 seconds, followed closely by Kemen, who recorded a time of 2:24 seconds.
The Housemates had to first recreate a marshmallow and spaghetti structure, climb over and under an obstacle, crawl under a low net and through the mud, climb over and under an obstacle again, swing on a rope over a pool of water, climb over an obstacle again and finally, use a stick to lift bolt nuts and stack them, making a tower.
While a couple of the Housemates, the likes of Marvis, Kemen and Bassey, breezed through the games, several others struggled and had to throw in the towel. These included Ese and Uriel. It’s the final stage that really had them struggling. They had to use a stick to pick and stack bolt nuts. Biggie had to remind them to pick up all their bolt nuts first before they could start building the tower. “Your time was spent,” said Biggie in the end.
This is the second week in a row that ThinTallTony shines during the Games, as last week he was announced winner, beating Kemen, who came in second. However, his victory was short lived, as footage taken during the Games that night indicated that ThinTallTony actually failed to complete the puzzle. Thus, Biggie withdrew his prize and announced Kemen as the winner.
Announcing ThinTallTony as tonights’ winner Biggie said it was a beautiful way of bouncing back from last week’s disappointment. “The best way to demonstrate your frustration is to vent on tonight’s Task,” Biggie said to him, further congratulating him.
Biggie then asked ThinTallTony to choose one Housemate to share his prize with. He chose Ese. “You will receive your prize from Big Brother tomorrow,” Biggie said before announcing that he had a “reward” for all the Housemates waiting for them in the Store Room.
It wasn’t long before the Housemates dipped into the Jacuzzi, having drinks, chatting and singing.
