Controversial Roki keeps Big Brother viewers in suspense
2012 May 24 07:42:10 | 2835 ViewsSo far a lot has been said about Zimbabwean housemate Roki whether good or bad it seems the bloke's strategy of less is more is keeping everyone in suspense. More often than not, viewers think Roki was the right person to represent Zimbabwe
with all his love for women, booze and smoke. Up to now, most viewers don't seem to understand why he appears to be high all the time.
Big Brother reality show is by its nature a game of suspense and when you have characters like Roki who from time to time promise viewers lots of surprises the last thing you would want is to see him exit Big Brother StarGame.
Call it strategy or lack of it, Roki is fast turning out to be a frontrunner and there is nothing at this point which can stop him from staying the 91-day course and or eventually win the prize money of US$300 000 up for grabs.
But before fans even think about the "moola" as fans call it on the strap line, two notable events happened in the past week.
The first one is the love/hate relationship between Roki and countrywoman Maneta. Big Brother fans would be reminded of the same sort of relationship that existed between former Zimbabwean housemates â€” Kristal Culverwell and Itai Makumbe.
The two just didn't get along well and where it mattered most, the Zimbabwean housemates were at odds against each other. However, somehow such kind of relationships didn't help either of the two and the worst was they got evicted when the going got tough.
Drawing parallels to that, Roki never mind the badboy or macho man tag that he is known for back home, he tried to reach out or was it flirting with Maneta and was rebuffed.
Instead of building an alliance not an affair with Roki, Maneta simply repelled his advances and seemed preoccupied with Roki's bad reputation as a "baby maker".
It seemed Maneta never liked the idea of seeing Roki in the Upville house and as he tried to be "nice" to her the more she was irritated. From that time, there was a gap between the two and Roki who has withdrawal tendencies quickly showed Maneta the other side of him which everyone knows â€” "good boy gone bad".
And just as well Roki told Maneta how much he hates her after she refused to hug him.
So during this week's nomination it was hardly surprising that Roki of all the housemates he could nominate he chose Maneta together with Mampi.
"My second nomination is Maneta, Maneta came to Big Brother in combination with her sister.
Now she's here (Upville), she has joined another combination with Mampi.
"She is fading into Mampi and she might just be used . . . the two of them besides the gossip and all the stuff they're doing, this show is gonna turn crazy just now and they might not be able to handle it." Roki told Big Brother.
Roki has on several occasions told viewers to keep glued to the screens let's see how far he will go but one thing is for sure when he does his thing he brings drama!
