Two Big Brother Naija housemates were selected as the two fake housemates among the housemates of this season. Earlier in the week, Big Brother tasked 18 housemates excluding Head of House Peace and her deputy Yousef with the task of figuring out the two fake housemates among them.
The task stated that if the housemates are able to figure out who the two wildcards are, they will immediately be evicted from the show during the first Sunday live eviction show. The two wildcards, Pere and Maria were instructed to play along and make it harder for the housemates to figure them out in other to remain in the Big Brother show.
If the housemates are unable to figure them out, the two wildcards will remain in the show and they will have a special nomination privilege for the week.
