I nearly got my head bitten off for running with this list on my daily column, Word Is on The Star.
Well, it is what it is. However, the grapevine is a buzz with who the housemates for the fifth Big Brother All Stars is.
As you all know, this year’s edition of the voyeuristic reality show, will feature contestants have been drawn from the 61 participants of the four previous series.
Kenya’s rep is Sheila Kwamboka My source told Hot Secrets Sheila and the other contestants are all in South Africa.
“Their minders do not allowed them to watch news on TV or read newspapers but they can watch movies,” the source said, “The contestants haven’t meet and they do not know that the others are also housed in the same hotel.”
Apparently other news sources around the continent have released their own list of contestants set to be the stars in the house from Sunday. On the list is Nigeria’s Uti Nwachukwu, Uganda's Hannington Kuteesa, Namibia's Meryl Shikwambane, Ghana’s Sammy B and South Africa's Lerato Sengadi.
Zimbabwean press disqualify Tapuwa Mhere who was a housemate in the maiden show because she is now beyond the participating age so is Bertha Zakeyo, who featured in the 2007 edition of the show. Leaving Munyaradzi Chidzonga, Itai Makumbe and Kristal Culverwell as the suitable candidates.
The 14 housemates will spend 91 days cooped up in the house and battling for viewers' votes - their only ticket to the $200000 (Sh16.2 million) prize.
