They revealed the first 3 housemates :



"Ellah is a sales assistant with a BSc in Business Computing from Nsambya, Uganda. She lists her favourite foods as ravioli, rice and chicken and her favourite books as Think Like A Man, Act Like A Lady, and Nice Girls Don’t Get Rich. She enjoys watching Reality shows like Real Housewives of Atlanta, New York and Orange County. Her favourite singers include India Arie, August Alsina, Beyonce, Rihanna and Sam Smith.

Her favourite place in Uganda is the Lake Bunyonyi Resort and she says that the best thing about Africa is “the warmness of the people”. Ellah has 12 siblings and her Mom is her role Sole model.

Ellah is mostly proud of having become Miss Uganda 2013/14. She says, “it was a stiff competition and a strong test for me”. She was inspired to enter Big Brother Hotshots because “it unites Africa and is also a platform for me to advance”. She says that she’s “super excited and is looking forward to being on the show”.

Ellah describes herself as “charismatic, bitchy, outspoken, loving and sophisticated”, and says that she’s a very determined person. She also says to love charismatic people and values honesty and joyfulness in others. She specifically detests “lies and fake people”."

"Butterphly (what an unfortunate name...) is a producer, radio and television presenter from Harare, Zimbabwe. She lists her favourite foods as meat, pasta with cheese, black-eyed peas and eggs. Her favourite books include the Bible, The Firm, The Long Goodbye, and the Sherlock Holmes series. She likes to watch Chopped, 24, Intelligence and Big Brother Africa.

“Being on Big Brother Africa will allow me to take the opportunity to market myself and expand my brand’, explains Butterphly on why she entered the show. She says that she won’t use “backstabbing and cheating or immoral and unethical methods” to get the prize. If she wins, she’ll send her sister, brother and kids to really good schools, start a chain of unique food, social and fashion hangout joints and take her mom shopping.

Describing herself as unique, feisty, mysterious and witty, Butterphly says that people are always shocked when they discover that she’s humble and compassionate. She likes people with a sense of humour, honour and truthfulness, and dislikes pretenders.

Butterphly says that she’s inspired from all sorts of people. ‘Ordinary, young, dead, legends – in everyone’s life story I try to extract important lessons like resilience, faith, strength etc. I learn as much as I can from the people I meet or read about,’ he says."

"Actor, radio drama director and MC, Alusa from Nairobi, Kenya, is married and has three children. His favourite food is ugali with chicken stew and traditional vegetables. He likes watching National Geographic and Nollywood movies on TV and enjoys African music including Mafikizolo and Salif Keita. He loves the movie Training Day which stars his favourite actor Denzel Washington.He describes himself as “ambitious, out-spoken and mysterious”, and likes people who have a good sense of humour. He doesn’t, on the other hand, enjoy people who “emit negative energy” he says.
He entered Big Brother Hotshots for the exposure and the intrigue of living with total strangers in a tight space all the while sharing his lifestyle with a huge audience. Alusa is looking forward to having Africa watch him. He says “I’m an artist and a performer, so I love the attention. I’m not in the least bit intimidated, in fact, I’m thrilled.”

Alusa lists Mombasa and his village of Kakamega as his favourite places in Kenya, because they’re both exotic and have a rich culture. Outside of Africa, his favourite place is Brazil because “Rich culture, beautiful women, sweet samba music, festivals, food – I could go on and on,” he says."

With the fire just days before broadcast do you think the housemates have been in lockdown ever since as presumably they were already in lockdown when the fire broke.

The 3 next housemates are :



Resa, 25yo, Zambia.
Zambian redhead Resa says her motto is “close to perfect” because close is good enough. She is going to miss her boyfriends hugs and may just impress fellow housemates with her cooking.

http://bigbrotherafrica.dstv.com/Video/635704/interview-with-resa

well i hope you feel like it's good enough when you'll be close to win but...nah



Permithias, 25, Namibia.
Permithias is proud to be Namibian because of the unity back home. Were he an animal he’d be a horse with wings because he values freedom. He is a well spoken and rounded person and reckons fellow housemates may view him as a threat for that.

http://bigbrotherafrica.dstv.com/Video/635694/interview-with-permithias



Nhlanhla, 25yo, from South Africa.
Nhanhla thinks of himself as both street and book-smart. He has an alter-ego for his wild side and his strategy is to approach things as you would a game of chess; to use people, their strengths and weaknesses as pawns in his rise to the top.

more about the last 3 housemates :

Resa from Zambia

Lusaka-born Resa is an Event Planner, MC and Public Speaker. She entered Big Brother Hotshots in the hope of winning the grand prize and being able to pay off her mother’s debts. “She has moved heaven and earth to ensure that I get my honours degree and in the process she has incurred debts,” says Resa.

She’s “extremely nervous, but delighted at the same time” at the prospect of having the continent’s eyes on her 24/7.

She says the viewers can expect “realness” from her. “No pretence, I’m an open book, I don’t hide my struggles because they’ve shaped me into who I am and I’ve used them as stepping stones,” she says. “Also, lots of dancing and definitely lots of laughter!”
Resa describes herself as “unique, colourful, bubbly, random and hyper”, saying that her inquisitive nature means that she won’t suffer in silence. “I’m apologetic, my outspoken nature, I’m a go-getter, open-minded and spontaneous,” she says. The Zambian says her motto is “close to perfect” because close is good enough.

Permithias from Namibia


Professional sushi chef Permithias unsurprisingly lists sushi as one of his favourite foods, alongside pizza. He doesn’t have a favourite book, but enjoys watching The Originals on TV. A fan of animation, Permithias’ favourite films are Turbo and Happy Feet, while he also likes the music of Chris Brown, James Blunt and Joe Tomas.
His mom is his role model, because she provided for the family with “nothing but blood, sweat and tears”. He is the eldest of five children; he has three sisters and a brother. Permithias says that becoming a chef is his greatest achievement so far, because it “opened a window” for himself and his family He was inspired to enter Big Brother Hotshots because he’s been watching the show for years but won’t sell his soul or lose his self-worth in the process.
Asked how he feels knowing that the whole continent will be watching him 24/7, he says: “scared, but it will all come together the way it should”. If he wins, he’ll take care of his Mom and open his own restaurant. Permithias says he’s easy-going, open-minded and “down for whatever is fun” and enjoys others who are also open-minded.
Permithias is proud to be Namibian because of the unity back home. Were he an animal he’d be a horse with wings because he values freedom. He is a well spoken and rounded person and reckons fellow housemates may view him as a threat for that.

Nhlanhla from South Africa


Nhlanhla is from Witbank in South Africa, and is a Business Analyst, Actor and Model with an Honours degree in Information Systems. He loves fresh butternut soup, lamb shank & vegetables and cottage cheese pie.
His favourite books include Animal Farm and The Great Gatsby and he enjoys Game of Thrones, Shameless, Suits and Heroes on TV. He lists Brad Pitt and Will Smith as two of his favourite actors. His favourite place in South Africa is the Groenkloof Nature Reserve in Pretoria and the best things about the continent as a whole are the people and their strength & resilience.
Amsterdam made a big impression on him at a young age when he went there and learnt a lot about himself and personal growth. His mother is his role model, because she sacrificed a lot to get him where he is today and taught him a great many things. Together with his Grandmother, she has influenced his life a great deal because they were always strong-willed and gently guided him through life.
Nhlanhla entered Big Brother Hotshots because he’s been a fan ever since he saw his first season on DStv. “I just knew that I wanted to be on the show myself, and wanted to take the opportunity to have my personality spread all over the world”. He thinks having the continent’s eyes on him 24/7 will be “nerve-wracking”, but says it’s a great feeling knowing he’ll be watched by the continent and can influence the viewers.
He describes himself as “crazy, eccentric, narcissistic, energetic and spiritual” and enjoys the fact that he’s always positive and optimistic, and always sees the beauty in others. Nhanhla thinks of himself as both street and book-smart. He has an alter-ego for his wild side and his strategy is to approach things as you would a game of chess; to use people, their strengths and weaknesses as pawns in his rise to the top.

Self-employed former law student Samantha is from Potchefstroom in South Africa's North West Province. She loves sushi and Indian food and her favourite TV shows include 2 Broke Girls and Person of Interest, and she likes the music of Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Davido and Drake.

Her favourite films include Ica Age, Madagascar, The Perks of Being a Wallflower and This Is Forty, with Angelina Jolie her favourite actor because "she's strong, yet feminine and an amazing actress".

Her favourite place in South Africa is Johannesburg, and she says the best thing about Africa is "the diversity of the people and the cultures". Her favourite city outside the continent is Jerusalem, which she calls "a beautiful place".

Samantha says her sister is her role model, because "she's inspired me to be so much more and has played a huge role in my life". Samantha was inspired to enter Big Brother Hotshots, something she's wanted to do for "a very long time" because she finds cultures fascinating "and the thought of spending time with so many people from so many backgrounds is awesome". If she wins the grand prize, Samantha will help the orphanages she volunteers at and take her sisters on holiday, before investing the rest.

She describes herself as "adventurous, random, witty, caring and honest" – the final trait being her favourite. It's also something she values in others, despising dishonesty and rude people.

Samantha looks up to her younger sister and can switch from one extreme to another during conflict. For a superpower in the house she would like to hope to disappear and be a fly on the wall for a couple of moments.

Sheilla is a student from Gaborone in Botswana, currently studying an AAT Diploma. She entered Big Brother Hotshots because she believes that "it's a platform for people like me who were born for the spotlight. It puts us out there to succeed in our careers – in my case, my music career".

She's excited that the whole continent will be watching her: "it is like interacting within the house with someone invisible, or a ghost, and the thought of what they think just gives you an adrenaline rush".

She says her best quality is that she analyses things before overreacting in certain situations. She likes people who are communicative because it helps her see what they think of her and how she should behave around them. She dislikes bossy people and "people with similar strands of personality to me".

She likes to eat prawns and rice, as well as pap and beef. Her favourite book is In The Meantime and her top TV shows include Big Brother Africa, Keeping Up With The Kardashians and How Do I look? She enjoys the music of Beyonce, K.O., AKA and Tamela Mann and says her favourite actors are Cameron Diaz and Dwayne Johnson. Her favourite films also include The Hunger Games, Wrong Turn, The Break of Dawn and Mean Girls.

Sheilla's favourite part of Botswana is the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans and says that the best thing about Africa is "the diverse but highly-principled cultures which Africans tend not to leave behind". She says that Las Vegas is her favourite place outside of Africa, because "it is a crazy, forever jolly holiday destination".

The vintage clothing lover prefers beauty over brains because beauty radiates a positive character. She loves her derriere and calls a spade a spade.

"It's something I’ve envisioned for a long time and it'll give me a chance to show Africa that I’m a star," she says. "I can entertain, but I'm also a human with problems, just like anybody else.

If she wins the money, she'll leave it alone for a month before buying a house, spoil her family with a holiday, build her Grandmother a house, save towards her daughter’s education, support her adopted charities and invest in her business.

More housemates :



A 1.93m-tall model with a Higher National Diploma in Maritime Studies, Tayo from Nigeria, certainly stands out in a crowd. He lists his favourite foods as eba and okra soup mixed with fish stew, his favourite musicians are 2Face Idibia, Beautiful Nubia and D’Banj.

He says his favourite place in Nigeria is Oyo Town, his place of birth. “That’s my home, where I started life. It reminds me of who I am now and how far I’ve come in life,” he says. He says the best thing about Africa is culture and pride and that his favourite place outside of Nigeria is South Africa, which he calls his “home away from home”.

He entered Big Brother Hotshots because he believes in himself, and was also encouraged to enter by others. “I like to be seen and to be heard,” he says. Tayo says he’s not willing to change who he is or disgrace his family and friends to impress viewers or his fellow housemates. If Tayo wins the grand prize he’ll set up his life and give himself a life of luxury.

Trezagah studied Civil Engineering. He doesn’t have a favourite food, because he says he loves eating. “I eat everything" he says. The classic Hardy Boys books are his favourite, while he enjoys the Discovery and National Geographic channels on TV because he admits he likes to “watch crocodiles and sharks attacking”.

Trezagah was inspired to enter Big Brother Hotshots by watching previous seasons. He is both happy and nervous at the thought of having the continent’s eyes on him. He says the best thing about Africa is “the culture each country preserves” and says his favourite place in Mozambique is Yofo Beach. He likes the Caribbean Islands because he’s a great fan of nature.

His role model is Jay Z, “because he knows how to dress, how to be on stage, how to behave and has good business control” he says. His parents have played an influential role in his life because they always showed him what was right and what was wrong.

He describes himself as “happy, active and wise” and says the best thing about himself is the way he treats people indiscriminately, saying he can “be a friend of a poor person or even a person that sleeps on the street”.

Her favourite TV shows include Keeping Up With The Kardashians, and Idols. Her favourite musicians are Beyonce, Brandy, Sam Smith and Zahara. Her favourite actors are Idris Elba and Angelina Jolie.

Her favourite place in her country is Lake Malawi, because it relaxes her. Her favourite place outside of Malawi is Paris. “It’s the most beautiful place in the world and I always imagine spending time on my honeymoon there,” she says. “It’s the City of Love!” She says the best things about Africa are the people, the landscape and the food.

She lists Beyonce as her role model because “she’s hardworking and she makes it look so easy. I’d love to be like her”. Sipe’s Mom played a huge role in her life too. ‘She raised three children on her own and it hasn’t been easy for her, but she managed to see us through school. She’s a very strong woman,’ she says.

And here are the first 2 housemates from Rwanda :



Frankie is a singer, model and actor with a degree in Financial Management. His favourite food is ugali with beef stew and his favourite book is Nelson Mandela’s Long Walk To Freedom.

Frankie enjoys the music of Joe Thomas, Luther Vandross and Morgan Heritage and he says he loves "epic movies and romantic comedies".

His favourite actors are Djimon Hounsou, Jamie Foxx, Denzel Washington, Cameron Diaz and Lupita Nyong'o. He values Africa's uniqueness and authenticity and lists his favourite place as Kigali – his place of birth.

Outside of the continent, he says that Canada is his favourite destination because of all the opportunities there, but also because his son Taye was born there. Frankie considers his parents to be his role models, because "they have gone through lots of tribulations, but love and kindness always blossomed" he says.

His proudest achievements are graduating from university and when his son was born. Frankie says that viewers can expect "great times full of enthusiasm and adventure" from him and that if he wins, he'll contribute towards building a school in his grandmother's village and buy a house for him parents, to thank them for everything they did for him.

Frankie gets along with both sexes and sees no point in lying about his age. He says being one of the first Rwandans to be on the show is "tremendously incredible."

Kigali-born Radio Presenter Arthur describes himself as "funny, humorous and humble". He says he loves the fact that he is social and makes friends easily. He enjoys people who are humble, and dislikes people who are irresponsible.

His favourite foods are rice and beans, his favourite book The Whole Truth, and favourite TV show, Real Husbands of Hollywood. He enjoys Usher's music and his favourite actor, Kevin Hart, is the star of his favourite film, Think Like A Man Too.

He says that viewers can expect "talent and humour" from him and if he wins, he'll invest his money in business. What won’t he do to win? "Anything that goes against my human nature". Arthur believes that "originality" is the best thing about Africa, in terms of its culture.

His favourite place outside the continent is the United Kingdom, "because that place is calm – especially Wales". Arthur's role model is Chris Rock, because "he is really good when it comes to comedy and he has helped so many comedians to make it on the market".

Arthur has mixed feelings about being the first Rwandan on the show. He says he loves eyes so he's intrigued by eye contact.

News from the housemates !

The launch of Big Brother: Hotshots was postponed from launching 7 September 2014 to 5 October 2014. Since the show was postponed, the housemates have been put under house arrest, separate and far from each other, for almost a month!


Having had them spend day after day in solitary confinement - with only a chaperone at their disposal - one can only imagine their levels of anxiety. With only a few days to the launch of the show, housemates were provided with cellphones so that they could record their individual experiences and share themselves with Africa. For two days, the housemates had to share as much as they could and would about themselves - from their favourite songs to a hypothetical diary session with Big Brother himself!


What the housemates have come up with is absolutely entertaining, to say the least. They have shared their thoughts and feelings around the delay of the show, as well as what they already miss about home. You will hear them rant and rave about anything and everything on their minds!

See them here explain how they felt when they learnt about the fire :

Here they explain what is on their mind while wainting so long :

And here you can see them cooking :

LAVEDA SAYING THANK YOU FOR THE FIRE CAUSE IT GIVES HER TIME TO SLEEP <3<3<3

This is really an interesting and rare scenario. Almost like a pre-BB. I remember the dutch and german seasons used a confimenet for the intruders for some seasons and I always regret that we never really knew what was happening there since there have been a lot of relationships built up before they entered the house. with this season its even more unusual since they all seem to be put apart from each other (and general news, too?).

yeah they're cut off from general world, they only have a chaperon coming to spend some time with them and bring food ect and they can watch movies, not tv. But you can see on the videos that some of them are in the same hotel though.
