The first five housemates had bodies fitting demigods with conspiracies on top of their to-do lists. First was Ozo with a knack for playing pranks then the singing bird Vee.

For this season, the stakes got higher with a 85 million Naira worth of prizes to be won but the voting options also got a face-lift. Asides voting via SMS and mobile, the organizers have introduced the tier voting style which will see higher voting slots for different DSTV subscriptions.
