After 28 days in the Big Brother Africa house, Botswana contestants, Edith and Eve Maygilip, managed to make being evicted look good when they exited the house following random selection nominations.
The sisters arrived in style in a state of the art car, which has not even hit the showrooms yet and, according to elder sister, Edith, since their arrival in Johannesburg when the game started, it has been A star treatment all the way.
Eve, who was neck to neck with the saved housemate on votes, blamed Botswana’s neighbouring country, Zambia, for not voting for her despite the proximity and she went on to state that she would not be happy if the Zambian housemates won.
The sisters were moved to tears when explaining that they would have loved to win and build a house for their visually-impaired sister who is married in South Africa and lives in rather dire conditions.
Edith dismissed the allegations that there was tension between the two and explained it as normal sibling rivalry,
Eve further explained that they did not spend every working hour together because they wanted to mingle and bond with other housemates.
With regards to bonding, Edith made it very clear that on the eve of their eviction, despite the fact that she spent a night in the arms of a male housemate, they did nothing and stated that, “It only went as far as kissing.”
The entertainment industry is where the sisters seem to want to pursue a career and Eve mentioned that she already has an agent on board who is helping her find opportunities. Edith also mentioned that as much as she would love to stay in the industry, the reality is she needs to earn a living. She is, therefore, yet to decide whether she continues as a Personal Assistant of pursue a career in the entertainment industry.
Marketing Manager of Multichoice Botswana, Tshepo Maphanyane, explained that it is up to Batswana to see to it that people like Edith and Eve prosper. Maphanyane went on to urge local artists to submit their music and sign release forms for their music to be played in the Big Brother House.
The ladies were given an opportunity to mingle and interact with Batswana at an eviction after party.
