Day 36: Housemates Divided Into Two Strategic Teams, ‘The Icons’ And ‘Cruisetopia’
If there’s anything the Big Brother Naija 2019 ‘Pepper Dem’ housemates have to get used to, it’s the frequent twists in the Big Brother Naija house.
Today’s twist saw no Nominations for Eviction, rather Housemates were divided into two different Teams named ‘The Icons’ and ‘Cruisetopia’.
Startled by Big Brother’s announcement that they move to the Arena instead of the Diary Room where they usually make their weekly Nominations, the Pepper Dem Gang proceeded to divide themselves into two different Teams.
After being made to select a drum for each gender, Housemates were made to pick one armband from each drum which contained both red and green armbands. Upon picking one, they were to wear it and proceed promptly to the box with the matching colour of the armband.
Elozonam and Cindy were the first to make a pick and what a coincidence! They both picked armbands with the same colour and landed in the same Team.
Below is a summary of which housemates are in which team.

This new twist means all the Housemates will henceforth play all the Big Brother Naija Games in their selected Teams. Housemates don’t get to change camps and Team Challenges will be designed to reward the winning Team and punish the losing Team.
No longer will they have the usual Nomination process of putting up fellow Housemates up, instead they will be having Nomination Challenges. The losing team of the nomination Challenge will automatically have all the team members up for possible eviction.
This also affects the Wager Task. The winning Team will have weekly supplies while the losing Team will have nothing.
