Apart from Maria, two other housemates – Sammie and JMK – at the ongoing television reality show have also been evicted.
This was announced by Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, the host of the show, during the live eviction show on Sunday.
The housemates initially put up for possible eviction were: Cross, Maria, Pere, Sammie, Queen and JMK but three housemates were saved as they had the highest number of votes.
Other housemates had been emotional due to the eviction as Michael, Pere and Liquorose were seen crying.
When approached by Angel, Michael, who was in tears after Maria’s eviction, he said the show is becoming harder than he expected.
“I feel shocked, confused in this house. I know it’s a game but don’t know why I care this much.
“I didn’t know it was going to be this hard,” Michael said.
The reality television show commenced on July 24 and this is the fifth week running with 18 housemates currently on the show.
