The Big Brother Nigeria reality show, season 5, is expected to come to an end in a few hours.
Twenty housemates were admitted into the lockdown house over two months ago and had equal hopes of winning the grand prize of N85 million.
However, there are only five housemates and contestants left in the game.
The last five housemates in this year’s grand finale are, Nengi, Laycon, Dorathy, Vee and Neo.
As their hopes of winning remain alive, Buzzupdate takes a look at the chances of each of the housemates at winning the reality show.
Vee: The 23-year-old Lagos-born musician has certainly surprised many by reaching this stage of the show. Vee is believed to be unstable in her relationship and offers nothing in terms of entertainment. Vee, a self-acclaimed music artiste, also does not have the appearance worthy of her claim. Many believe that she will be among the first housemates to be evicted today. Her relationship with Neo has been marred with constant squabbles and this may work against her.
Neo: 26-year-old Delta born housemates is almost on the same level with Vee in the eyes of viewers. Neo’s chances of winning the show seem very slim, mostly because his energy came at the latter part of the show, maybe after he witnessed the evictions of top challengers such as Kiddwaya and Ozo.
He was initially very unentertaining and was seen by many viewers as a busy-body. However, now that the game is about to end he appears to have realised that it actually is a competition. Also, his unstable relationship with Vee could adversely affect his chances of winning.
Dorathy Bachor: The 24 years old housemate who hales from Delta State, is believed to be among the top contenders for the grand prize. However, Dora may not be crowned for some reasons. Since her entrance to the lockdown house, the Delta-born entrepreneur has been very calculative and lacks entertainment and these factors may count against her.
Nengi: Obviously, the Bayelsa born relationship with Ozo may be her greatest undoing in the show. Also, her current relationship with Laycon, may affect her chances of winning as most viewers believe she only got close to the music artist after calculating all his gains and especially because she feels he could emerge the winner. Again, some viewers argue that her rejection of Ozo was because she sensed that he was not going to win and is not as rich as Kiddwaya. Hence, the Ozo factor may likely work against Nengi.
Laycon: He is believed to be on the summit in the list of likely winners. Olamilekan Agbeleshe, the 26-year-old up-coming rapper is intelligent and very smart but lacks swag. Laycon’s physical appearance might be standing as a hitch on his way to this huge success. However, because of his sincerity, especially about his background, Nigerians may vote massively for him and we may see the pendulum swing in his favour. Again, his current relationship with Nengi, especially in the last days of the game could work against him.
