#BBNaija 2018 Day 40: The Alex Effect
Alex is one of the few #bbnaija housemates that has a contagious energy that could be felt right from the moment she first walked onto the Big Brother Naija stage. From rocking everywhere with her green hair to being the queen of the dance floor, she’s definitely a force to be reckoned with.
At the beginning, she seemed to have had it all figured out and looked like she knew what she wanted and how she would get everything on her way to winning the biggest prize the #bbnaija house has to offer. As a matter of fact, this is true for most if not all of the #bbnaija Housemates.
Everyone thought that having watched the show before would give them an upper hand but they have so far being left in shock, as they realise that it is not a smooth sail as previously thought. Being so young and in a position where she’d be exposed to so much with the whole of Africa exposed to her, Alex took a bit of a fall and almost completely lost her game plan.
With 19 other overbearing personalities in the #bbnaija House, there was evidence of back stabbing and quarrel cocktails that always spilt over and intoxicated the entire House. Alex on her part seemed to take even deeper dives and found it hard to swim to the surface and catch her breath, which a number of times leaves her unhappy and grasping at straws.
However, it seems like her absence during her ‘recollection period’ did her good because she managed to dodge the Nomination bullet and got out of it with mere scratches and emotional bruises. This was perhaps due to the consequent Eviction of her bestie Vandora.
Alex seems to have realised that the only way was up really and that’s where she seems to be going, slowly but surely. Her gaming philosophy is quiet different from the rest of the #bbnaija housemates though. During her conversation with Ifu Ennada, she said, “there’s only one winner, one out of 20 people and you want me to break my leg?”
Basically, she seems not to be ruffled or have any intention of ruffling any feathers or stab any backs, unless of course it’s done to her.
Furthermore, her partnership with Tobi wasn’t only remedial for him, she too immensely benefited from it. Even though she’d locked herself in closet Leo for a while, Tobi managed to get through to her and not only was her energy felt during ‘audiogasm’, she cracked the shell and stepped over the pieces in the #bbnaija House too.
Although she’s mentioned just how afraid she was of growth, there is more than enough evidence that she has gone through it.
