The fifth season of Big Brother Naija kicked off with a bang on Sunday, July 19, 2020.
Last Friday was the first since the housemates joined the BBNaija Lockdown house, and you know what that means, right? The Betway Arena Games!
As the headline sponsor of the BBNaija show, premium online entertainment company, Betway is organising all of the Arena Games for the duration of the show.
The first-ever session of the Betway Arena Games in the BBNaija Lockdown House was held by 9pm yesterday, Friday, July 24, and it was done in honour of health workers.
Big Brother tasked the housemates to move through a sort of health-themed ‘obstacle course’. The housemates had to dress up as medical workers and complete related tasks like labelling first aid boxes, separating pills by colour, etc. The first housemate to correctly complete all obstacles would win the game.
The game honoured health workers by displaying the hard work and attention to detail that is involved in their profession, especially in the light of a global covid-19 pandemic.
As deceptively simple as the game sounds, remember that all housemates were racing to be the first to finish, so they could win.
Additionally, no one wanted to perform awfully to avoid a fine from their Betway Wallet. The tension of the moment caused lots of laughs and drama as the housemates rushed to complete their tasks.
At the end, no one finished their tasks and Big Brother penalised all Housemates by adding 10 extra seconds to their overall time in the Betway Arena games.
Nengi and Lilo received special recognition from Big Brother for making efforts to go the farthest in completing the challenge and were exempted from Big Brother’s penalty.
The drama began long before the Arena games when Big Brother asked the Housemates to dress up in their Betway jerseys in preparation for a Betway trivia.
The Housemates were split into two groups; Nengi leading Team White and Wathoni leading Team Black. All housemates answered sport related questions from the trivia and Team Black won the other team by 3 points scoring a total of 19 points.
Keep up with the action and don’t miss out on all of the twists, turns and action of the BBNaija house. With Betway, you know it’s always game on!
