With only days left before the end of the show, Biggie completely banned any sort of campaigning for the rest of the week. It’s a decision that seemed quite harsh at first but when he asked them in today’s Diary Sessions, if they felt it jeopardised their chances, they all agreed that it didn’t phase them anymore.
Bisola said they would have been incredibly annoying to watch because all they’d be doing is campaigning, so it was probably a good call.
Marvis actually felt the ban would allow viewers to vote on merit and Debie-Rise argued that it had helped level the playing field.
Enter another twist. Biggie told everyone to put on their finest clothes and get ready to go to the Arena for their last presentantion.
They had only 40 minutes to put on their make up, suits and evening gowns before heading out and they all looked visibly nervous as they racked their brains for the perfect speech. In the end, Biggie’s call was a good one because not having time to memorise anything forced them to speak from the heart.
First up was TBoss. “I came into this House a princess and now I stand before you, a queen! I say this with humility. I am not a proud person.” She expressed her gratitude for everyone who’d “invested in her” and asked them to keep being kind and voting.
She revealed that she didn’t know why they’d saved her so many times but suggested that it was probably because they all saw every facet of her and realised that she was nothing like the first impression she often gets thanks to her “tattoos and piercings.”
