After analysing last week’s voting critically, it was hard for me to miss the fact that there was a lot of tact used by voters.

Why is it that West Africa and Tanzania were up against Gaetano? Could it be that he is really that boring now that Abby is gone? Are viewers empathising with the fellow for his loss or could it be that they consider him a potential threat to their own housemates?

Since voters are not required to justify their choice of evictees, all we can do is strategically surmise. We know that Nigeria and Ghana certainly had an interest in protecting Bayo, knowing just how vulnerable the fellow was (Remember Ghana has nothing to loose anymore since their Sammi was evicted. All they can do is ally with the closest).

They knew that Gaetano was a strong contender and threw all their weight behind their man by endeavouring to eliminate their his. That Tanzanians voted Gae out is no surprise given that we are the only country that voted their man out.

If indeed this conspiracy theory against Gae is even close to true, Ugandan voters only need make shrewd choices to help Gae out here.

Of the housemates up for possible eviction this week, Mwisho, I believe is the strongest contender. But we cannot underestimate Taps’ appeal. I am reliably informed that 80% of the BBA voters are women. Yes, guys, we might watch but the girls are faster at casting the vote.

Perhaps that explains why Abby was overwhelmingly kicked out on her first nomination and, why, since Bruna, no other (decent) girl has left the house. Now we (partly) know what makes Cherise such an indomitable contender, and, is this why even the overly opinionated Warona made it to the final five? So, if the so-called women vote (if there is anything like it) really counts that much, will Taps sail through on the same?

On the other hand, as argued on the BBA website yesterday, Stefan will have to pull all the resources this week to entertain the viewers of Big Brother Africa. Last week he was relaxed and spent the most part of it in bed.

“Stefan’s entertainment value ever since Alex and Sammi left has dropped drastically and he has to convince Africa that if he is allowed to stay two more weeks, he will be worth watching,” it read.

With that in mind, Stefan should be the least of our worries.

I reckon it would be to Gae’s advantage if Mwisho left this week. He can safely take a chance with the three girls and Stefan. Cast your vote.
