Maria And Pere Identified As BBNaija WildCards
Maria and Pere have been revealed as the two wildcards in the Big Brother Naija season 6
Crystal News recalls that on Sunday, shortly after the female housemates were introduced, Ebuka announced that there are two wildcards among the twenty-two housemates.
Ebuka then announced that the wildcards will be revealed to the viewers today by 3 pm in a special diary session.
Today, Thursday, July 29 in the diary session, it was revealed that Maria and Pere are the wildcards.
According to Maria, she feels she’s doing a great job but does not feel comfortable lying about it.
She is a little bit sure that the housemates will not be able to figure her out.
Prior to the announcement on Sunday, Pere and Maria had thought there is only one wildcard and will have to wait till the Sunday night eviction to find out about the other person.
However, they both guessed each other when Big Brother asked if they could guess who the other wildcard is.
Big Brother had asked the housemates to bond for two weeks and find out who the wildcards were.
If the housemates had been able to identify who they were, the wildcards would have been automatically evicted on Sunday night.
On the other hand, failure to identify the wildcards means they will remain in the show, play for the money and have exclusive nomination privilege.
Who Are BBNaija Wildcards
Wildcard refers to a player or team that has not qualified for a competition but is allowed to take part, at the organizers’ discretion, after all the regular places have been taken.
