Big Brother has harshly reprimanded the Level 2 Housemates for disregarding the Rules of the Game in the wake of the confrontation between Beauty and Ilebaye last night.
After the Live Show, during which Modella and Deji were introduced to Levels 1 and 2, Big Brother convened the Housemates in the lounge to address the rudeness.
Before addressing the Housemates, Big Brother first played a clip of the argument between Beauty and Illebaye.
It seems to Big Brother that you may have forgotten your reasons for being in the House. For those who may have had a lapse in memory countless Nigerians young and old had the desire to make it into the House and thousands had the courage to apply in hopes that their gamble would pay off. In the end, only 24 were selected. Each of you were selected because of a unique quality that stood high above the thousands that applied.
A quality that makes you special. Although Big Brother knows the unique quality that each of you possess, you can however be assured that the traits that made you stand out will never be good enough to give you a pass and make it okay to disrespect Big Brother and the House Rules that everyone here is expected to abide by. Housemates, let’s get over some of these rules.
Article 18 page 18 of the Rule Book talks about Prohibited Behaviour in detail.
The Big Brother game is one that encourages expression and that violence will never be tolerated. Big Brother quoted that any Housemate who becomes physically violent will be removed immediately. Violence can refer to self-inflicted violence or violence towards another. Other forms of violence include provocation, goading , bullying and victimisation and these may be punished by Big Brother in anyway Big Brother chooses.
A request to stand was made for Ilebaye and Beauty. Biggie made it known that they duo have disregarded the aforementioned by going above their respective limits throughout their argument. There are non-negotiable regulations in Big Brother’s House, thus they have access to the Rule Book because breaking them is non-negotiable.
Big Brother criticised them for breaking the rules so flagrantly the night before.
When Beauty charged at Illebaye physically, she went one step further by removing objects from the woman’s body in what would have been considered violent behaviour.
“Illebaye, your part is to understand that when people set boundaries, these must be respected to avoid situations getting out of control therefore you need to acknowledge your role in this situation”. Big Brother issued a warning to Illebaye.
Big Brother then turned to Beauty. “In spite of being heated, approaching another Housemate with the intention of causing physical discomfort or even harm will never be tolerated. For your behavior, Big Brother thereby issues you a Strike. Two more Strikes and you will be Disqualified.
“I understand 100 percent” and Big Brother told the rest of the Housemates that they too were not off the hook. “Dragging your feet when called will no longer be tolerated. When Big Brother calls, you must respond immediately,” Biggie charged.
