✅Rejoice Jeremiah. C.®
~WEEK 1 #Day 1
(The HOM Nomination♦)
The Show returns for the new day on the national TV 📺
The boys room was the first to come on, on the TV screen.
None of the boys had woken up.
Ivan got the best sleeping position and Chris had the most awkward sleeping position with his duvet almost off the bed.
The cameras switched to the girl’s room.
The girls were still asleep but guess what?
May had the best sleeping position while Grace has the most awkward sleeping position with her legs wide apart, covering all the space on her bed and had also kicked off her duvet to the floor.
(Thirty minutes later)
I to and fro on my bed and finally I woke up.
I took my sleeping mask off and sits up on the bed.
I yawned and stretched herself, getting the remaining sleep off my eyes.
Just like taking Tea at night has become a part of me, waking up by 5:30am has become a part of me too.
I never sleeps past 5:30 unless I got so drunk or seriously ill.
When I was done stretching body and rubbing my eyes, I saw Grace’s position on her bed and I couldn’t help but chuckle.
‘This looks so funny’
Then I got out of bed, slide my feet into my slide slippers and walked to Grace bed, picked up the duvet on the floor and covered Grace back with it.
I returned back to my bed and laid back down but wouldn’t fall asleep back.
I’m just gonna be awake till the alarm clock begins to sound by 6:am.
By 5:55am, I sat up and wore my Name Card and lav mic.
By 6:00am, the loud alarm began but it started with a song🎶 ‘Beautiful Day by Jamie Grace’
Oh, oh, oh..
Wake up and smile cause it’s been a while
It’s been like a whole day since I stopped
So you could hold me🎶
This child awaits strong in the faith
Lord You are the refuge that I can’t wait to get to
Cause I can’t let a day go, can’t let a day go by
Without thanking You for the joy that You bring to my 🎶life
And, oh, there’s something ’bout the way
Your sun shines on my face
It’s a love so true I can never get enough of You
This feeling can’t be wrong I’m about to get my worship on🎶
Take me away
It’s a beautiful day,
It’s a beautiful day….
I got out of bed and headed to the bathroom to brush.
The other housemates began struggling to wake up, a housemate like Grace.
May was the first to wake up but laid still on the bed.
Second to wake up was Claire.
The music stopped and a loud noisy cockcrow sound began.
This time, Grace and Sam were awoken by the noisy annoying sound.
At the boys room, Ivan was the first to wake up and he was the first to leave to the bathroom to brush.
Cruz and Alex followed behind.
Chris and Finn still laid on their bed.
The Alarm was still sounding and this time, it changed to a baby laughing out noisily.
Finn sat up and wore his mic and Name Card.
Grace wore her mic and Name Card, got off the bed and headed to the bathroom to brush.

(10 mins later)
I was done brushing my teeth. Honey, Claire, Sam and May too.
It was time for keeping fit.
To get to the gym hall, the housemates have to get to the living room then go through a door by their left, which would take them to the gym hall.
I cleaned up my wet face while staring at my reflection on the mirror.
Sam and May left.
“Grace. How was your night?” Honey asked me with a smile.
“It was fine, yours?” I said
“Was fine too… Are you done? Let’s go” she said
“Yeah I am”
We both left the bathroom and headed to the gym hall.
Getting to the living room, we met Cruz, Chris and Sam.
Sam headed to the gym alone while Chris and Cruz turned to us.
Chris smiled at us.
I reciprocated. Honey did too.
“How was your night Grace and Honey?” Cruz asked us.
“It was fine, thank you.” Honey answered.
“It was fine and yours?” I said.
“Great,” Cruz said smiling at me.
‘What’s that smile about?’
“Mine was great too…let’s go to the gym,” Chris said.
We headed to the gym hall.
I totally forgot that there was someone like Ivan in the house until I walked into the gym hall and saw him walking on the treadmill.
He tied a black bandana around his head and his hair fell across it.
Little sweats dripped down his temple and just then, he lowered the speed of the exercise machine, opened a bottle water and sipped down, I saw it go down his Adams apple.
Then he licked his lower lips and his tiny dimple went in and disappeared.
“Let’s walk the treadmill,” Honey said to me.
I looked at Honey with a smile. “Yes let’s do do that”
I walked onto the treadmill and in no time, I was running on the machine.
Thank goodness Ivan was behind me but I could see his back through the mirror in front and I’m sure he also sees me.
What do I do?
I don’t think I should do anything.
I’m on a contest, I can’t do anything to put my staying here for three weeks in danger.
I have to overlook and ignore a lot of things which includes him, Ivan.
When she walked onto the treadmill, my eyes landed on her but her back tho.
She turned on the machine and began to run on it.
Why must it be that treadmill opposite mine..
Now I keep seeing her ugly back whenever I look at the mirror.
I was about getting off the treadmill when the black guy, Cruz walked over to her and stretched a bottle of water to her.
“Have this,” he said to her.
She smiled at him and took it. “Thank you Cruz. I forgot that I needed water.”
“All thanks to me. You do now” he said.
I scoffed and got off the treadmill.
Ivan left the treadmill and went to have a seat on the cushions.
The keeping fit time was already fourth five minutes gone and only fifteen minutes was left.
“Do you like her already?” Chris asked Cruz after he returned to Chris who was lifting a dumb bell.
“She’s cute,” Cruz said and lifted a dumb bell.
Ivan crossed his legs and gulped down more of his bottle water.
When he brought down his face, his eyes landed on Grace who had come down from the treadmill and was talking with Honey.
He looked away and relaxed his head on the cushion headrest.
“Do you braid your hair sometimes?” Honey asked Grace.
“Yeah, I braid my hair a good number of times,” Grace said. “What about you?”
“Uhm just a few times but I haven’t since last year. I prefer to leave my hair curly just like this,” Homey said.
“Actually my mom always braid my hair and she still do and in return, I braid hers,” Grace said.
“Wow, you must be so close with your mom,” Honey said.
“Yeah very close. I’m close to my dad as well,” Grace said.
“You have a sister?” Honey asked her
“No, just me,” Grace said.
“Ohhh…wow.. I have an elder brother,” Honey said.
Grace smiled. “That’s nice”
Honey looked at the wall clock.
“Oh, gym time is over” she said.
👁️🗨BIG DADDY: THIS IS BIG DADDY, ALL HOUSEMATES, ASSEMBLE AT THE LIVING ROOM NOW.
All Housemates began to exit the gym all.
Big Daddy wasn’t even done talking when Ivan stood up and left the gym all.
All the housemates assembled at the living room.
The living room has three three-sitter couch, one four sitter couch with two round shaped ottoman chair then a table at the center.
The couches has different colours; The four sitter couch is gray colored, the first three sitter is yellow colored, the third is purple colored and the fourth is blue colored.
The first ottoman which is also gray colored stood in between the gray couch and the yellow couch and the second ottoman which is purple stood in between the purple couch and blue couch.
Ivan sat down the gray colored couch and crossed his legs.
May and Claire and Sam were the next to come in.
Then Alex, Chris and Cruz.
Then Grace, Honey and Finn.
May and Claire sat on the blue couch but Sam went to the gray couch Ivan sat.
Alex, Chris and Cruz sat down on the purple couch.
Honey and Grace sat down on the yellow couch and Finn joined Ivan and Sam.
Sam was sitting in between Ivan and Finn.
They stayed silent, waiting for Big Daddy to speak.
They knew he is about to give them the HOM question task and the housemates who wanted the HOM post got ready.. The Housemates are Grace, Honey, Cruz, Chris, Claire, May, Sam, Alex and Finn, the other housemate wasn’t interested.
They didn’t wait a long time because Big Daddy’s voice soon came on.
👁️🗨BIG DADDY: FOR THIS SEASON’S FIRST WEEK HEAD OF MANSION POST, NO QUESTION TASK WILL TAKE PLACE.
Big Daddy broke the shocking news, confusing us all.
But why? I was waiting for this day for so long.
I watched every movie, read every book, and every history I could.
The four seasons, on the Monday of week 1 which is the Day 1 of Summer Dreame, Big Daddy always uses question game to give an HOM post.
The winner is always announced the next morning, Tuesday.
Last year, he surprised the housemates with ten questions from the epic movie, Titanic. The winner was Henry, a male housemate who got 5 points.
The third season, was a question from American History.
But this time, no question game, how will the HOM post be given?
Big Daddy is always full of surprises.
👁️🗨BIG DADDY: TWO HOUSEMATES HAVE BEEN NOMINATED FOR THE HEAD OF MANSION POST.
Who are they and why are they being nominated when no game took place?
I can’t be among that two right?
No, no way..
I know I can’t…
👁️🗨BIG DADDY: THE FIRST HOUSEMATE IS…………………………………………HONEY
I gasped and turned to Honey who was in shock too and confused.
How did this happen?
Honey is nominated for a HOM post’
My heart began to beat so fast…
What if I’m the second housemate?
What if I just hear ‘Grace’
My heart was beating so loud that I tried my best to calm it down.
👁️🗨BIG DADDY: THE SECOND HOUSEMATE IS…………………………………………………………………………….,,………….,……….
‘Grace calm down…’ I told myself
I looked at him and he gasped too, in shock.
He couldn’t believe it.
I looked at Honey and she shrugged at me.
👁️🗨BIG DADDY: HONEY, YOU MUST BE WONDERING WHY YOU GOT THIS NOMINATION..
AT 5:30AM, YOU WOKE UP AND YOU SAW A FELLOW HOUSEMATE DUVET ON THE FLOOR. YOU DIDN’T IGNORE IT BUT YOU PICKED IT UP AND COVERED HER BACK WITH IT.
FOR THAT, YOU DESERVE THE FIRST WEEK HOM POST NOMINATION.
Honey did that?
Which housemate is that?
I looked at her and I could see how happy she is.
She wasn’t expecting this….
Big Daddy is sure full of surprises.
👁️🗨BIG DADDY: CRUZ, YOU MUST BE WONDERING WHY YOU GOT THIS NOMINATION.
AT THE GYM HALL, A FELLOW HOUSEMATE NEEDED WATER AND YOU GOT HER ONE. ALSO YOU TRY TO BE FRIENDS WITH YOUR FELLOW HOUSEMATES.
FOR THESE REASONS, YOU DESERVE THE FIRST WEEK HOM POST.
Wow…. I can’t believe this. I was the housemate that Cruz brought water to.
I tried to look at Cruz but my eyes met with Ivan’s.
He was looking at me.
His eyes looked mocking and he didn’t want to look away so I did and looked at Cruz who smiled at me.
👁️🗨BIG DADDY: YOUR VOTING WILL BE ANNOUNCED IN 24 HOURS. GOOD LUCK!
“Wow, I can’t believe what just happened,” Honey said to me.
I smiled at her. “You deserve it but i’m so curious on who that housemate is.” I said.
She smiled. “You don’t need to know. Maybe I will tell you later. I don’t think Big daddy wants me to reveal it either.”
I smiled. “I’m happy for you”
“Thank you Grace”
Claire stood up. “I’m going to make breakfast for everyone. I hope everyone here eats pasta?”
“Yeah we do,” Chris said.
“Who’s gonna help out in the kitchen?” Claire asked.
“I will,” I said and got up.
“Can you cook?” Alex asked Claire.
“Yes I am a cook,” Claire said with a smile and headed to the kitchen.
May got up and followed her.
“Let’s help out in the kitchen,” Honey said to me.
“Sure” I said.
