“I have no regrets. I was 100% me and I make no apologies for it.”
Speaking to Independent Xtra via a telephone interview on Tuesday Erastus said that one should not be too emotional about being evicted.
“It’s just a game really and anyway we came into the house as winners and we come out as winners.”
“Itai (from Zimbabwe) is the person I expect to get the prize after my brother Edward because we share the same outlook on life”, said the 33-year-old.
Erastus will now go back to his “goat farming” business and is open to whatever might come his way.
The fourth eviction show was emotionally charged because it claimed the scalps of three influential housemates in Zambian Paloma along with Namibians Rene and Erastus, after the three garnered the fewest votes from Africa last week.
Monday night’s nomination show threw Yacob and Hannington along with Elizabeth and Kevin up for eviction this week.
The nominations were particularly tough for the housemates this week because of the “comrades in arms” twist, which sees them playing the game in pairs. A nomination for one housemate is effectively a vote against their partner too — something which has blown the existing alliances in the house wide open and crystallised new ones in less than 24 hours.
Once all the housemates had had their say, Yacob/Hannington and Quinn/Kristal found themselves in the firing line with 11 and nine votes respectively against them as pairs. They will spend the week sweating over being evicted, while unbeknown to them, head of house Itai saved the Quinn/Kristal pairing and replaced it with Elizabeth and Kevin.
Without knowing it, Itai has played into the hands of the house’s new major alliance, which deliberately nominated Quinn/Kristal in the hope that he would indeed save them because of his relationship with Kristal, a fellow Zimbabwean.
Now it’s up to Africa to decide who stays in the house. Zimbabwean viewers can vote via the website at www.mnetafrica.com/bigbrother or by texting their favourite housemate/s name to 15626 (Econet users). — Multichoice/Staff Writer.
