In a recent interview with Punch Saturday Beats, evicted BBNaija housemate Doyin spoke about why someone like her wouldn’t be able to win the popular reality TV show, Big Brother.
She revealed that she entered the house without any expectation of winning due to her specific personality traits.
Doyin acknowledged that her choice of words might bring criticism from viewers, which she anticipated while in the house.
“I won’t lie. A personality like mine cannot win Big Brother. I did not go on the show thinking I was going to win the prize money. I knew that I did not stand a chance, because my personality is ‘a lot’, and people tell me that every day. I just wanted to go there, be myself and show who I am. I felt I would be able to stay long enough on the show. Actually, my goal was to get to the finals.”
Additionally, Doyin clarified that she should not be labeled as a gossip because the main topic of conversation in the house was usually about the housemates themselves.
“We have nothing to talk except one another. There was no television or social media. The other housemates were our ‘sources’ of entertainment. I never gossiped about anybody,” she said.
Doyin also spoke on her relationship with Ilebaye. She said;
“We were on the same season (Level Up) in 2022, but we never lived together. Even after the season ended, we were not close. Meeting at in the house for the current season, getting close to her was a no-brainer because we were both from the same season.
“As a matter of fact, I saw her like my younger sister. However, certain things happened (that affected our relationship). In that house, it is very easy to misunderstand a lot of things.
I felt like my friendship with her was not being appreciated or reciprocated. I am sure on her part, she also wasn’t okay with some things. I hope that when she comes out, we can sit down and resolve the issues. But, if that does not happen, I still love her regardless.”
She expressed no regrets about her interactions with the other contestants, explaining that many of them had large egos and felt entitled, leading to frequent clashes within the house.
“Everybody was feeling special; even those that were not that important. Some people felt that they were being disrespected because of the way they were spoken to. But, the irony is that they also were not respectful.
“That felt crazy to me, because if they did not want things like that, they should have stayed in their houses and not come for the show.”
