Big Brother Naija is back for the eighth and perhaps most explosive season yet! The new edition will feature former housemates returning for another run in the ‘Biggieverse’. The ‘All-stars’ will get a chance to win where they lost before and possibly walk away with ₦120 million cash, among other prizes.
Interestingly, only one African can understand the enormous opportunity of winning the show – Uti Nwachukwu. Uti won the ‘Big Brother Africa All-Stars season in October 2010 and has remained a certified star ever since. His season was spicy, and the twists left viewers’ heads spinning, but Big Brother Naija All-Stars promises to be more. It means that fans will not want to miss any moment of the game, but that’s impossible since the show is on 24/7.
However, the breakdown below will help you keep track of the most important activities for each day, from Sunday to Monday. Let’s go!
Mondays – The Black Envelope Challenge: Every year, Big Brother introduces new twists to his ‘Biggieverse’. As longtime fans know, the Big Brother house is Biggie’s universe, and he runs it however he deems fit. This season, the iconic leader of the show is introducing a new spin to the usual Head of House games. However, no one knows the details yet, and they won’t until the season’s first challenge.
If the game is anything like the former HOH game, it will make or break housemates’ strategy and affect their time in the house. Usually, the winner of the HOH challenge wins a reward like a personal executive room with a chosen partner of the opposite sex, immunity from the week’s nominations and veto power to save and replace housemates. However, this may not be the case this season. Viewers must wait until Monday, July 24, 2023, at 7 pm to understand what the game means for the season.
Tuesdays and Wednesdays – Diary Room: The diary room sessions affect the fanbases a housemate can gather. They are often emotional entries into housemates’ hearts where they either connect with Big Brother and the viewers or gather a group of haters. However, things are different this year since the all-stars already know what to expect from the diary session. So, fans should anticipate the strategic use of this session. Will your fave be the most annoying person during sessions or the cutest and heartwarming? Tune in every Tuesday and Wednesday from 1 pm to find out!
Tuesdays to Saturdays – Daily Tasks: Big Brother Naija All-Stars will gather 20 housemates in a house from different backgrounds and seasons, so it may be easy to watch cliques form from day 1. There may be bland moments if housemates only stay in their circles. Tasks and presentations force them to come out of their shells and interact. It allows for possibilities where people become friends after they connect during an activity or enemies because they clashed. Apart from being educative, informative and exciting to watch, tasks are essential to a housemate’s journey. Enjoy daily tasks every Tuesday to Saturday from 4 pm.
Thursdays – Pool and Grill Party: The parties are infamous for being the underlying cause of every formed ship, sex scandal, or triangle. Housemates get a mid-week reprieve from tasks and wager drama at the Thursday parties. It becomes a chance to let loose, show off their banging bodies in bikinis and swim trunks, try some hanky-panky, eat barbecue and drink to their heart’s content. It also makes for a very entertaining watch. So, catch the pool parties every Thursday at 8 pm.
Saturday – Night Rave: The night rave is as fun as the pool parties. Since the housemates have very active lives in the real world, the raves allow them to feel like they are getting the club experience. It also features some of the biggest DJs nationwide and the occasional guest performance. This is the biggest BBNaija season yet, so expect the most prominent names to show up and the wildest parties from 9 pm every Saturday.
Live Eviction show: This is the most important of all the activities. Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, the season’s host, takes centre stage as he ‘scatters tables’, asks critical questions viewers want answers to, takes fans on a recap of the week, and in most cases, sends home at least one housemate weekly. He evicts housemates who have the least votes per week from the house, so their fans must take advantage of the tiered voting on the MyDStv and MyGOtv apps to keep them in the game. Voting is also available on the Africa Magic mobile and website. Even if you miss any other activity, you can’t afford to miss the live shows that air every Sunday at 7 pm on Africa Magic Urban, Showcase and Family, and Showmax.
Remember, if you are away from home and don’t want to miss a minute of the action, you can catch up with your favourite All-Star housemates on the DStv app or Showmax. For more information about the show and programming, visit https://www.dstv.com/africamagic/en-ng/show/big-brother-naija.
