Frank out of Big Brother Nigeria
Earlier in the week, Frank was on his knees begging voters to “please keep me in the house, I wanna be in the house” after he was nominated for possible eviction by fellow housemates. His fellow evictee Sandy also pleaded with viewers who have the last say in the reality show to give her another chance in the house. But it was Sandy who survived eviction while Frank took the walk of shame. Viewers of the M-Net reality show Big Brother Nigeria made their voices heard again this week as the show’s tenth public vote began. With nine housemates having already left the house, the anticipation among the remaining four housemates is surely increasing as they move closer to the U$100 000 prize. Last week, after spirited performance from youthful Nigerian outfit – Rought, Rugged and Raw, the majority public opinion saw 29-year-old professional dancer Franks evicted from Big Brother Nigeria. Frank gained 60 percent of the public vote while fellow nominee Sandy got 40 percent of votes. When host Olisa Adibua made the announcement, the calm Frank became the tenth housemate to leave the show, after spending two and half months in the Big Brother Nigeria house. And as he made his way out through the carved wooden doors of the BBN house, Frank bed farewell to the four remaining BBN housemates and the show’s US$100 000 grand prize. In the moments after he was evicted, Frank watched a special edited insert that showed his stay in the Big Brother Nigeria house. And he found out just which of his fellow housemates had nominated him, along with Sandy, for this week’s public vote. In an interview with Olisa after his eviction, Frank said he was happy to be out of the house and that he was looking forward to seeing his fiancee whom he proposed over the phone. He also revealed that all the 14 housemates were his favourites and expected Katung to win Big Brother Nigeria. “I would not give dancing for anything else,” he said after he was asked whether he would remain a professional dancer. Asked whether he was moved after he was nominated, Frank said he wasn’t at all. “I saw it coming,” he said adding that, “I was the only one who was not up for eviction last week. When Big Brother asked whether he would change his “strategy” or not now that he was facing eviction, the visibly shaken Frank said “no”. “No, never, I wouldn’t change anything because if I do that, it won’t be me,” he said. He, however, confirmed that his nomination for possible eviction would impact on his conduct in the house. “I’m prepared but I think I’ll have constant flashes of fear of being evicted,” he said. A professional dancer, Frank said emphatically, “I am a loud person!” He is an entertainment lover who says that his best quality is that he can dance and his worst quality is that he is untidy. Frank enjoys the music of R. Kelly, P Square and K-Franklin and says he enjoys most R ‘n’ B, rap and gospel music. In addition, he likes to watch soap operas, comedy and the news. Frank’s role model is Ben Bruce “because he used his wealth and skill to define entertainment in Nigeria.” Frank also respects globe-trotting rocker turned political crusader Bono of the Irish super-ground U2. Frank himself is widely traveled having visited Germany, France, South Africa, Spain, Italy, Tunisia and Portugal. He says he’d love to visit Egypt and the United States. The next landmark moment for Big Brother Nigeria is the eleventh Eviction Show. This ‘must-watch’ program will be screened on M-Net.
