Before she won, the position had been occupied by two male housemates, Jeff and Nelson.
Esther won the position when she won a ”Memory Challenge” where housemates were expected to memorize the numbers of cards found in the house for 20 minutes
When the 20 minutes were over, the housemates moved to the Arena but Big Brother, who felt they were uptight, made a twist to the game and asked them to dance for five minutes.
When they were done dancing, Biggie asked the housemates to guess the location of the numbers in the house
Big Brother also said any housemate who guessed wrongly the location of the numbers would leave the Arena.
The first casualties were Frodd, Tacha, and Mercy. Tuoyo got disqualified for the second time in two weeks for talking to Omashola during the task.
Naija News understands that the Head Of House position comes with 250 Bet9ja coins and the special room where the winner will stay for a week. (NAN)

I remember back then in school law students must finish their booklets during exams and collect extra in every course. So not too surprised Esther cracked this challenge. She is use to reading plenty and putting in down. Congratulations Esther the breaker of hearts. #bbnaija
