Talia Gets Closer to $300,000

ZAMBIA's beautiful hopeful in the highly contested season seven of Big Brother Star-game Talia, has remained clean and unnominated ever since she was upgraded to the Upville house. Is this a good sign?
Talia is now recording a smooth third week of not experiencing the tension of standing before Africa as a nominee in the Upville house. Thanks to the Malawian head of house, Wati, who did not waste time in saving himself and reconsidering his earlier decision made during the initial nomination session of putting Talia up for possible eviction.
The Malawian head of house made use of his 'save and replace' power to save himself from the gallows of the eviction and placed the Uganda's head, Kyle firmly on the chopping board. This is now the third time. Kyle is experiencing the eviction tension. Wise decision by the Malawian it seems.
Wati was on Monday morning the only one who nominated Talia giving a reason that the Zambian diva was his biggest threat and competitor. Initially, the nominated housemates were Uganda's diminutive Jannette, Lady May, Prezzo, and the head of house Wati who laughed upon hearing his name among those nominated.
When Wati went to the diary room to exercise his head of house prerogative of saving any of the nominated house to replace with any of the unnominated, he looked excited and at ease about the whole thing. He had three candidates from which to pick in the names of Talia, Kyle and Keagan.
Wati might have thought so quickly not to put Talia on the list for that would have spoiled his relationship with the southerners. "The nominated housemates for possible eviction this Sunday now are; in alphabetical order: Jannette and Kyle and Lady May and Prezzo" bellowed Big Brother.
Now it seems as though the news of being nominated for possible eviction this week gripped the Ugandan diva with high emotions. Jannette went under cover after big brother announced the nominees list. But after some minutes, she sprang up from the covers and went outside to serve Keagan with some drink in the Jacuzzi. It was certain that Jannette was mystified by the news and that she did not really know how to handle it because from serving Keagan, she got a plate of food and suddenly told Lady May that she wanted to take a shower. She did not even eat her food.
While in the shower, she opened the shower door to ask Lady may when she should ask big brother for the hair possibly for her eviction. "You can ask Biggie tomorrow during your diary session and hear what he says" said Lady May. After the shower, Jennet isolated herself in the lounge trying to fight the reality of being nominated. Prezzo saw anguish on Jannette's face and thought it wise to give her a talk of encouragement.
You know this is just a nomination by fellow housemates, you don't know what Africa thinks. If it was Africa nominating, you can be worried. Please get to the Jacuzzi and fight it by joining the guys in the conversation," said Prezzo. Talia was in the Jacuzzi enjoying herself with the guys. Keagan, Kyle and Wati took turns in a rare bonus in touching and playing with Talia's hair while in the Jacuzzi. She is just a free-spirited girl.
We are yet to see what Africa will decide on the fate of Jannette, but we feel that she is very much likely to face the eviction door this Sunday. We are only expressing our opinion and please remember that this is just but our independent opinion which does not reflect the final mind of Africa. Although we are proudly still at 100 percent in our predictions, we do not know what Africa and big brother may decide on Sunday.
Jannette has had issues with her self esteem the past few weeks which did not yield her positives from her critics that included Lady May. It was generally not a very bright day for both Ugandans Kyle and Jannette as earlier in the day during his Diary session Kyle broke down after remembering that his 'ill-timed' decision.
According to Kyle, Keitta had a lot of more fans and would easily be saved from eviction but that was not the case. Kyle had hard times to talk to Big Brother and eventually broke down. He then asked Biggie to give him some time to compose himself though it seemed he was too much in the regret mood.
