Media personality and host of the Big Brother Naija show, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu has revealed how housemates were chosen for the just concluded reality show.
He made the disclosure during a recent interview with BeatFM. Ebuka stated that housemates were picked based on their different characters.
He said contrary to rumours that Tobi was picked because he worked with Heritage bank, the sponsors of the reality show were not part of the auditions and they could not have chosen housemates.
Ebuka is quoted as saying: ”housemates were picked for different reasons. Khloe for example was picked for drama, Vandora was a happy girl.
”It is not all about talent, you never know what they are looking for in the audition.
”There will be a drama person, a happy person, housemates’ characters are mixed.
”So, if for example 2 dramatic persons have been picked already, they will move to the next character.
”They have a template of what they want from housemates, it depends on them.
“The auditioners also realized that some housemates try so hard to be someone else in the house; maybe they got intimated by other characters or they tried so hard to be what they are not in the audition.”
Ebuka, however, advised prospective housemates for 2019 to be themselves.
