Almost becoming a reoccurring factor in the house, there were tears yesterday as Sipe took offense to an off-hand remark by Idris about her being a gold-digger. She immediately fled to the bedroom where she was comforted by Goitse, and later JJ as well who both encouraged her to be strong and keep on playing the game the way she has always known how to. They told her she that she was a strong woman that was neither a quitter nor the type of person to leave the house without a fight.
Idris on his part seemed not to be aware of the fact that he had hurt Sipe’s feelings with his remarks as he went on to join Samantha and Tayo outside in a conversation that ranged from tourist sites in Africa ranging from Montecasino in South Africa to Selous Game Reserve in Tanzania. Lilian was also sitter with them but she appeared to be bored or perhaps didn’t have much to contribute to the conversation.
After the housemates received the brief for the second week’s Extravaganza including further instructions on how they would proceed with their tasks, the teams split up and discussed their ideas. Between talk of amnesia, the mafia, family rivalry, gods and pregnant girls, teams had the dramatic element nailed. We can’t wait till they start putting their dances together!
The teams seemed to be different from those of last week just as the dynamics seemed better than those of the previous week. However, It did not take long before arguments and confusion broke out within the teams. Sheillah (in Team B) got very upset, complaining that other team members would not let her get a word in edgewise. In Team A, JJ was having no problem making himself heard, taking the lead as always.
Disagreements were however minor, and the housemates exchanged creative ideas between themselves. It is left to be seen if this period of bliss will last till Saturday night, or if a misunderstanding will push a housemate over the edge.
