Ardent lovers of the show just can't stop watching it every time it starts screening. Every season has its own characters some come onto the show for a short while and leave a lasting impact, others stay on the game for the entire 91 days, but you can hardly remember them. Below we bring you some of the characters who still linger on in our minds:
Bertha - Her strategy was the bible. She had the character of a God fearing person, but after sometime, she gave it up and abandoned her bed too only to jump into a male housemate's bed.
Richard B - This housemate from Tanzania was deeply in love with Angola's Tatiana and the could sort themselves out as and when they felt like. Richard at one time was kissing Tatiana while his other hand was working on Ofunneka of Nigeria. This made Africa roar and since then a number of things have changed on show including moving the shower hour to the exclusive version.
Meryl - She was beautiful and had the booty and was not scared of flaunting it. It was during their season that shower hour was at its peak and she could bare her whole for Africa to see. She was given a second chance in the Big Brother All Stars, though she did not win the money but at least she won a Man who happens to be none other than Tanzania's Mwisho. They are married and have just had their first child.
Gaetano - He was the first housemate to rock in the sheets while the whole of Africa watched, since then most housemates have made this a must happen given a chance to feature in Biggie's house. He is also one housemate who has benefited greatly from the post show fame.
Ola - The Nigerian Housemate in the Big Brother Stargame was a threat right from the time he joined the house. No housemate since Big Brother Africa inception beats his physique height and weight and chances are, this is what blew the judges away. Its however, not clear if the tricks he used to have an impact on the show in the 14 days are the very ones that made him succumb to pressure and eventually quit the show prematurely.
Munya - He came close to taking the grand prize but missed it as there is always one winner at least for their versions of the show. He even had a chance to go another house in Europe for only 48 hours, but he was able to leave an impact on the female housemates in that house. Regarding the missing of the grand prize, he even beat the overall winner in their year. The winner got USD200,000, but President Mugabe of Zimbabwe plus other businessmen contributed USD 300,000 for him.
Uti - He represented his country Nigeria and along the way, his father passed on and the following conditions were open to him: He either went to bury his dad and never returned to the house, or he stayed in the house to the time he could be evicted or play the game till the last day. He Decided to stay in the house and not go for the funeral of his dad, in the end he won.
Mildred - She is a Ghanaian artist and joined the Big Brother House with her model boy friend Keitta. They are the first official couple to be in the Big Brother House and had it not been for Mildred's eviction, it would have been a different story for now as far as their relationship is concerned. She was the first housemate to go on strike and not appear on the Big Brother stage and the reason behind her action was stemming from a Brazillian hair extension.
