The well-liked baby of the house Zino and the sometime bad boy B.U. are the latest Housemates to be evicted from Big Brother Mzansi.

Leaving the house the day after his 22nd birthday, Joburger Adindu Asuzu aka Zino told BB Mzansi host Lawrence Maleka that it was a privilege and “amazing” to have been on the show.

When asked who he was going to miss from the House, he said it was Yoli. Zino said, “I really appreciated her. She was amazing and she gave me an older sister – I’ve never had that before.”

Joburg-based Durbanite B.U., real name Luthando Mthembu, said to Lawrence he believed some Housemates were playing the game quite well, such as Nale.

About his own journey on the show, he said, “I’ve learned a lot of lessons along the way, but one thing about me is I’m gonna be me. I wasn’t shaken at any point. If it makes sense to me, it doesn’t have to make sense to anybody else.”

When asked what was happening between him and Venuss, the self-described ‘Zulu Vegan’ simply said, “Everything.” Ooh la la. His biggest regret was that he didn’t cook more vegan meals.

Also, up for eviction this week – nominated by Head of House Gash1 and Deputy Head of House Nthabii – were Libo, Nale, Thato, Venuss and Vyno.

Reflecting on his week as Head of House, Gash1 believed his reign was a democratic one, saying to Lawrence; “I wasn’t the father of the house – we were a community and I was its head”. While calling her deputy seat “an honour and a privilege”, Nthabii said she was gunning for the head honcho seat in the coming weeks.

In a Valentine’s-themed week, Biggie tasked the Housemates with making stuffed toys for fellow housemates for whichever reasons, be they romantic, platonic or peacemaking. It was an emotional challenge that resulted in many tears.

But it wasn’t all roses. During a heated scene with fellow Housemates earlier in the week, Themba said: “We are all snakes. No one is innocent.” Thus, summing up the part of the game we’ve now entered: facades have fallen away, fakeness has evaporated and the race for the R2-million grand prize is well and truly on.

Lucky viewers can also win R20,000 in prizes each week.
