Beauty Becomes First BBNaija S7 to Be Disqualified
Beauty on Sunday, August 7, 2022, received a double strike for throwing an object toward Groovy at the Saturday Night Party, thus breaking Biggie’s rule of physical violence. Hence the reason why she was disqualified.
She got physical with Ilebaye last week, with the Saturday night violence, and received another strike from Biggie leading to her disqualification, becoming the first person in season 7 to be eliminated.
Amaka said alcohol consumption might be the reason for Beauty’s behaviour at the Saturday Night Party and subsequent Eviction.
Sunday (August 7) night Highlights
Beauty has been disqualified for getting physical with fellow housemates
Two more new housemates Racheal and Chizzy were ushered into BBNaija on Sunday, August 7.
Eloswag hands over to Hermes as Head of House
For the second time, a member of Level 1 house has emerged as the new head of house, he becomes week 2 HoH. The 26 housemates, except the outgoing HoH and the two fake housemates, participated in the task which involves resetting wristwatches dipped inside an oily bowl.
In the first round, Cyph, Dotun, and Hermes made it to the second round. Hermes beat his competitors with the most balls in his bucket.
The housemate who emerges HoH is immune from eviction and safes his co-level housemates from being evicted. Again, Level 1 housemates are safe from eviction if one holds on Sunday.
In related news, Dotun emerged as the new Tail of House in week 2, for mishandling his microphone during the game.
Ebuka introduces two new housemates
Deji (from Lagos) and Modela (from Osun). While everyone was expecting at least one of the existing 24 housemates to be evicted Sunday, July 31, the host of the show ushered in the 25th housemate into level 1 house and the 26th housemate into level 2 house.

Highlight from Level-Up First Saturday Night Party
The first Saturday night party for the level-up housemates on July 30 was lit as level 1 and level 2 stormed the dancing floor with their swag. It was an opportunity for the two housemates to mingle once again.
There were more than enough alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks to go around, it was fun to its fullest for the 24 housemates who anticipated the party and said it was about the fun.
We had our ears on the ground during and after the party, but here are some of the highlights of the night which is gradually revealing the hidden feelings among housemates:
Cyph kisses Doyin passionately, but it seemed Doyin was a bit tipsy, well it was part of the game for her as she looks good while Cyph was boastfully moving around like…” yeah, I did it!”
The camera also caught Phyna and Bryann having their lips locked. It was a short one. It was a nice moment for both.
Pyna also locked lips with Eloswag (HoH). The touching in sensitive places were countless, so there was no need counting them as part of our highlights.
We didn’t see much of Daniella and Khalid, but both were all over themselves during and after the party cuddling and had something to whisper in each other’s ears . We might see another relationship building up.
And after the party, Amaka made a lot of revelations. One of them is, “I can’t wait for Biggie to join level 1 and level 2 together”, saying, “Na inside there (level 2 ) the real guy dey.”
Later, she (Amaka) revealed to Phyna that she liked Dotun and ‘vowed’ to hijack Dotun from whoever lady he is hooked with, but does the cool-looking Dotun have a similar feeling for Amaka?
Beauty was caught reprimanding Groovy for dancing away with another lady while he (Groovy) gives her little attention.
Specifically, the former Miss Nigeria caught Groovy dancing with Chomsy with whom she is not comfortable. She frankly expressed her displeasure to the Groovy, “you disrespected me.”
Another housemate, Ilebaye who tried to talk to Beauty while she was complaining didn’t work. The conversation degenerated to both using abusive words against each other.
There are lots more that happened, but we like to make it short.
Did you also hear Doyin say, “she likes a guy that has the confidence that will say, come on girl”?
