This season of Big Brother Naija has been about pairings. Well, until last weekend when BBNaija’s host Ebuka announced that the pairings had been dissolved and the game had well and truly become a free for all. We have seen strategic alliances, catfights, sex under the sheets, and bro culture. I have complained that the partnerships in the house were too heterosexual, and will there be any harm in pairing housemates of the same sex?
Surely not. But now, social media has given us an unexpected tearjerker, a Bruno Mars-assisted montage of Tobi and Miracle’s bromance in the BBNaija house. Posted by @prisycarrot on Twitter, (who isn’t the creator, in case you were wondering) the montage warmly captures fun moments between Tobi and Miracle, and branded as friendship goals. Or if partnerships are still your thing, then Toracle.
It is interesting to note that after last night’s voting (which saw Anto evicted) we are pretty sure now that the front runner for the Big Brother Prize are Tobi and Miracle, with Miracle being in the clear lead. So it does serve both of them to present a united front, lest they split the potential votes between them. Other than strategy, it is obvious that both men do have a certain rapport and Miracle has more than once had to step up and mediate between Cee-C and Tobi. He is invested, no matter how you slice it.
If you think we’re the only ones who are starting to see the very strong strains of this bromance, then here’s some evidence to sway you; 12 Times Tobi and Miracle’s Friendship Is The Type We All Need, reads a SocDaily headline. You may feel a certain way while watching the montage. Nothing is wrong with you; you are only experiencing a normal human emotion.

Have you been following the new season of Big Brother Naija? Here are some important things you probably missed on day 49.
Check out a recap of day 49, including social media reactions
Anto gets evicted
On Sunday, March 18, Anto, who was up for possible eviction was evicted after she got the least votes.
She was up against Miracle, Tobi, Cee-C, Lolu, Teddy A, Alex and Bambam.
I understand the last three but I am really shocked by Teddy A’s numbers. Looks like his fans make more noise than they vote. Poor numbers for such a vociferous group. Miracle’s numbers reflect his popularity pic.twitter.com/5rDZ0JLduO

Two evicted housemates to return to the house
In an unexpected twist, Ebuka Obi Uchendu announced that this week, the public will be voting to bring back two of their favourite evicted Housemates.
The eligible Housemates are: Anto, Leo, IfuEnnada, Ahneeka, Angel, Princess, Bitto, Vandora, Dee-One, Khloe and K.Brule.
The two Housemates that make it back into the House next week will be returning as individuals. They will compete for the prize until they are voted out according to the normal proceedings of the season.

How fair is it that evicted Housemates who have had the privilege of watching the the game from outside, getting feedback from fans on what they did wrong in the game, & also studying the game plan of the other Housemates, be allowed back in the house 4 the prize? 🤔#BBNaija

Tobi gets two strikes Tobi’s joy of finally having a diary session after having been excluded for not answering Biggie’s call was short lived when a clip of him talking to Lolu and Anto about Cee-C was played back for the entire House to see. Biggie summed up the conversation as a conspiracy. That, plus the ignored summon resulted to two strikes for Tobi.

Miracle and Nina allegedly have sex
There’s a clip of Miracle and Nina allegedly having sex after the eviction show. The video is not explicit, so it’s unclear what happened beneath the sheets.
