Every year, thousands of young Nigerians audition to be part of BBNaija mostly because it guarantees an escape from the hustle life and shoots the housemates to stardom.
If making it into the BBNaija house is no mean task, surviving in the house requires another level of instinct and strategy and many of the housemates come prepared with plans to make it to the last day on the show.
These housemates with diverse backgrounds and specialities through their auditions have shown what they had to offer, but they have to show the viewers what the organizers saw in them.
As we anticipate the premiere of the 2022 edition on July 23 and 24, we take a look at some of the pro-tips some ex-housemates shared on how to survive on the show.
Here are some of the tips.
Have an X-Factor
While speaking on the BBNaija documentary, the housemates mentioned that you must have an X-Factor, a particular thing that makes you stand out amongst the millions of people auditioning for the limited spots. Are you the multi-talented Bisola Aiyeola or the dance machine Liquorose?
Embrace Your Personality
Most housemates are not the best people character-wise, but these people seem to be the ones that appeal to viewers more. They are described as real, the main characters, the drama! Whether you have the best or worst personality, wear it with pride. Alex revealed on the BBNaija documentary that she was rude during her auditions but she still got in.
A Clever Pity Story
The best winning card is the perfect pity story, a story that the average Nigerian connects with, that taps into their emotions. Most Nigerians have a saviour complex they would definitely want “their own” to win the cash prize. It worked for Efe, and Laycon, it can definitely work for you.
Strategies are important. Every housemate who has made it into the house had a side of themselves they felt would appeal to the viewers, a strategy they are all trying to implement in the race to win the grand prize.
Be Known for Your Talent
In the last season, professional dancer Liquorose, at every opportunity, infused dance into whatever task she was given. Laycon plugged his music in at every opportunity during the show. Bisola was known for being multi-talented because of how she performed during her tasks. Being known for your talent is one sure way to succeed.
All these strategies and more will be explored by the forthcoming BBNaija housemates, who will be announced at the double launch premiere on Saturday, July 23 and Sunday, July 24. Watch the show on Africa Magic and determine which of these tips works best.
