Jury in BBnaija season 8:

Wondering what the jury does on BBNaija All-Stars?

Ordinarily, “a jury is a body of people sworn to give a verdict in a legal case on the basis of evidence submitted to them in court”, but Bbnaija Jury consists of three ex-housemates: Bisola (from See Gobbe); Mike (from Pepper Dem); and Dorathy (from Lockdown).

The jury decides who leaves the house from the list of housemates who made it to the bottom of the votes.

For instance, Princess, who was the first victim of the Jury’s verdict, shouldn’t ordinarily have been evicted, Seyi should have if it was by the votes, but Jury passed their judgement that she deserves to leave the house.

Here is the result of the votes from the bottom:

  • Ike: 1.59%
  • Princess: 1.54%
  • Seyi: 0.89%

The jury was introduced at the beginning of the live show with the aim of bringing a sense of excitement and anticipation to the viewers.

On  Sunday, August 23, when Kiddwaya was evicted, Big Brother introduced four additional ex-housemates: Prince Nelson, Kim Oprah, Lucy and Omatshola.

Nigerians Angry Over Jury Decision

Some followers of the Season 8 of BBNaija all-stars have shown their grievances to the decision of the jury which supersedes their votes, following the eviction of Uriel on Sunday, August 13, 2023, instead of Seyi.

Seyi Awolowo was supposed to be kicked out of the house in the first week of eviction but he was saved because the 3-man jury of the reality show picked Princess instead. The votes showed that Seyi came in the bottom of the voting with 0.89%; Princess: 1.54%, and Ike: 1.59%.

Again, the jury saved Seyi when it was time to evict the housemate that had the smallest percentage of votes. The jury picked Uriel instead.

According to the voting pattern, Tolanibaj had 2.04%; Uriel with 2.00% while Seyi got the lowest with 1.70%.

Reacting, Udo said, “Show losing integrity now… Seyi emerges with the lowest votes twice in as many weeks and somehow is still in the house… Na like this go to court bn start”.

Another follower of the show, Yenyan tweeted, “Uriel wasn’t and isn’t supposed to leave the house What content exactly is seyi giving in the show other than to eat and insult women Jury who aren’t watching the show are not supposed to be there to be plain and straightforward this jury of a thing is useless”

Below is some random comments from BBNaijaAllstars followers:

“Imagine Seyi having the lowest vote and still in that house. #BBNaija this jury thing should be scrapped let the viewers votes count jare”.

“Why will The Jury evict Uriel and not Seyi who has been the least voted for two consecutive times? If this show is not scripted, I don’t know what else to say. @BBNaija you just outer yourself. The Stuff with Mercy and Tacha, It was your doing and it’s Rubbish sha #BBNaija”.

“You guys are just messing up the show..How do you explain Seyi’s being saved again for the second time,with the lowest votes,all bcos of some jury or wot ?…Let the jury’s just crown the winner next week since our votes doesn’t mater in this..”

Why is BBNaija All-Stars unique?

The 2023 dubbed All-Stars is unique because it is the first Big Brother Naija which had no new faces, housemates are from the previous editions of the TV reality show.

However, no Season 1 housemate made the All-Stars Season 8 edition.

The housemates that made up Season 8 came from the following editions:

  • Season 2 (See Gobbe)
  • Level 3 (Double Wahala)
  • Season 4 (Pepper Dem)
  • Season 5 (Lockdown)
  • Season 6 (Shine Ya Eye)
  • Level 7 (aka Level Up)

How many housemates are in BBN Season 8?

There are 20 housemates in the BBN All-Stars. In Season 2, two former housemates were invited. Here is the rest:

  • Level 3: 3
  • Season 4: 5
  • Season 5: 3
  • Season 6: 4
  • Level 7: 3

Is there any season 1 ex-housemate in season 8?

No. Only the host Ebuka is from the season, he will not be competing, he is the host. It wasn’t the first time he will be hosting the show. In 2017 he was announced as the host of the Season 2 aka See Gobbe.
