Season three of Big Brother Naija has officially started airing live on Sunday night.
The reality TV series this year increased the number of contestants to 20 unlike last year which featured 12 contestants.
The winner of this year’s 78–day contest will be given N25 million cash prize and a brand new SUV.
Big Brother Naija this year is tagged “double wahala” with contestants comprising of musicians, comedians and entrepreneurs.
They are Vandora, Teddy A, K Bruce, Nina, Miracle, Alex, Princess, DeeOne, Ahneeka, Rico Swavey, Bito, BamBam, Leo, Khloe, Angel, Ifu-Ennada, Anto, Tobi Bakare, Cee-C and Lolu.
Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, who is hosting the show for the second time, introduced all the contestants as they entered the Big Brother house.
Popular pop artists, Mayorkun and Kiss Daniel cheered the ceremony with live performance during the launch.
To spice their first day, the first task for the housemates required them to find their bed spaces as those available were limited and six couldn’t get their bed.
On Monday morning, Big Brother announced that the housemates without a bed space should pack their bags for eviction but were later taken to a different room, away from the other housemates.
Also, there was a reunion show featuring some of the previous housemates who had been aired for one week before Sunday’s launch.
