Saturday, August 17th in the Big Brother 2019 House started on a high note and here are some of the highlights from the day.
The Dano Milk Challenge
The 18 housemates were given three tasks for the Dano Milk Challenge. After they were divided into 6 groups, they were tasked with creating a jingle. The six teams were Team Cool Cow (Tacha, Elozonam and Ike) Team Strawberry (Khafi, Omashola, and Frodd), Team UHT (Cindy, Enkay and Sir Dee) Team Slim (Gedoni, Mike and Jackye) Team Full Cream (Diane, Joe and Mercy) and Team Choco (Seyi, Esther and Venita).
The housemates were made to score each other points on their performances which many thought didn’t do the teams justice.
At the end of the first task, the results were Team Cool Cow with 15 points, Team Strawberry 14 points, Team UHT, 19 points, Team Slim, 13 points, Team FullCream, 8 points and Team Choco, 20 points making Team Choco the winner.
A good number of viewers however felt Team Strawberry should have won as they did better.
The second challenge which was the Dano Milk trivia, the housemates were asked questions about the Dano brand and current affairs.
Team Full cream had 9 points which was the highest but wasn’t enough for them to make the final round.
Team Cool Cow, UHT and Choco made the last round.
In the final round, they were asked, they were asked to do a puzzle where the team finishing in the shortest possible time wins.
Team Choco finished in seven minutes which made them the overall winner of the Dano Milk Challenge. As winners, they get N250,000 each with a year supply of Dano products.
Joe celebrates birthday, Tacha refuses to celebrate him
Joe turned a year older on Saturday and as the tradition, he got a cake and drinks to celebrate with his fellow housemates.
The housemates also took turns in celebrating him with Venita taking the lead. Tacha, however, declined to congratulate him owing to the quarrel which earned both of them strikes.
Joe is the fifth housemate to celebrate his birthday in the BBNaija PepperDem house alongside Mike, SirDee, Thelma and Tuoyo.
Frodd and Esther get into mild fight over sleeping position, Biggie calls him to order
After the party, Frodd tried to get cozy Esther while on the same bed as usual but this time, he took it too far. In a video seen online, a visibly Esther as she dragged the duvet of a slightly naked Frodd and pushed him off her bed.
Not long after, Biggie called Frodd to the diary room, we don’t know what transpired but Frodd went to his bed after which probably meant he was admonished by Big Brother.
See some reactions from Twitter.
Hehehe, So Frodd was about to play a fast ‘Kemen’ on Esther 🤔until Biggie called him to order.
Dear men, No means No. 😕 Frodd should better be disqualified. Nonsense!

Toke Makinwa has warned her female followers to stay away from miserly people who find it difficult to spend on themselves and on others.
The media personality, in a new video, explained how exhausting it is dating a stingy person. She also condemned men who, when they go on dates, scrutinize the bill and keep complaining about the cost.
Sharing the video, she wrote:
I am sooooo fine ????? okkkkkk let’s focus shall we??? It is Wednesday and my crazy side is here. Let’s talk about those miserly people. I call it “scarcity mentality”. They hate to spend on themselves talk-less of spending on other people. Dating a miser is so exhausting, even if you work hard, you will always be excessive even for the basic things of life to them. They will always find a way to make you look wasteful or feel bad for wanting more out of life. ?????. Stay away from people who suffer from “scarcity mentality” for your own peace of mind or you’ll defend why your kids should go to good schools, why you want more out of life, you’ll always explain yourself forever
Nollywood Actress, Ruth Kadiri and her hubby, Mr Ezerika, are expecting their first child and the actress took to Instagram to officially show off a glowing pregnancy photo of herself.
The lady whose excitement about being a mother seems to be growing rapidly wore a tracksuit, while proudly flaunting her baby bump. Ruth and her husband had their traditional and white wedding in November 2018.
Big Brother Naija, BBNaija, housemate, Esther, was at the early hours of Thursday pranked by fellow housemates; Sir Dee and Frodd.
It all started at the garden when Frodd approached Sir Dee all of a sudden for speaking ill about him to other housemates and hurled insults at him
This resulted into a serious argument between both housemates for some minutes, which attracted Esther and other housemates to the garden to separate them.
While Tacha and Omashola tried to calm down Sir Dee, Mercy and other housemates were pacifying Frodd.
However, when Esther got into the garden trying to separate the fight between Frodd and Sir Dee, she was thrown to one corner as Frodd shouted happy birthday to her.
He later sang a birthday song for her alongside Sir Dee and other housemates, adding that the supposed fight between him and Sir Dee was fake and intended to bring Esther to the garden to celebrate her birthday.
Esther in reaction buried her head in between her laps as she hugged all housemates in excitement.
Frodd and Sir Dee’s action earned them reactions and approval from Nigerians and BBNaija fans on social media.
Here are some comments gathered by DAILY POST from Twitter;

The senator representing Ogun East, Buruji Kashamu, has denied claims that he is the one captured in a viral video being slapped on the head on a train in London.
According to a report by Punch, in the seven-second video, a bespectacled bald man whose face is not shown, is sitting on a train when another man in a white shirt standing behind him gives him a heavy smack on the head and runs off before his victim can do anything.
Though the assaulted man’s face isn’t seen, many Nigerians on social media alleged that the man was Senator Kashamu.
The senator’s spokesman, Austin Oniyokor, in an interview with our Correspondent, however, denied the involvement of his principal, saying no one could identify the person in the video as Kashamu.
Onyiokor said the video had been shared on WhatsApp with people alleging that the victim was Kashamu.
He said, “Can you identify that person as Senator Kashamu?
“I wonder why you want me to react to something I cannot identify.
“If you can identify him, I want you to tell me. I cannot identify the person as my principal.
“That some people are sending something on WhatsApp does not make it (true).
“I do not expect any reporter or any medium worth its name to attach any probative value to something that cannot be proved.
“That is not my principal and I don’t know why I should react to it.”
Kashamu’s spokesman described the alleged assault as a non-issue.
According to him, no one could identify the person in the video, “except whoever is writing that is saying they went to London on the same flight or he/she was there when it happened.”
Asked if the senator was in Nigeria, he said, “Yes, if you want to see him, you can come to VI. He’s in his office — I don’t know what kind of trash. It has been on WhatsApp for about two weeks and, last week, Kashamu buried his mother in Ijebu.
“People were there; it was reported. So, I don’t know where this trash comes from. I’m not sure you or Punch can establish that that is him.”
This comes four days after former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, was physically assaulted by members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra in Nuremberg, Germany, on Saturday, during the New Yam Festival of the Igbo.
