Uti lost his Dad on Monday and since then it has been a terrible game for the Nigerian housemate. Big Brother gave a number of options for him to consider which Uti and one of the his family representative together with Big Brother producers explored and came out with the preferred option.
The rule on emergencies on the game goes as follows:
"Should there be any extreme crisis in a contestant’s family or private life outside of the show, Big Brother will communicate this to them. Should a Housemate and Big Brother decide that the nature of the crisis mean that they have to leave for any protracted time, they will not be allowed to re enter the house and may be replaced."
Two options were presented to Uti and his family which were as under:
1."Uti leaves the Big Brother house immediately until the funeral . This would entail an absence of 2 to 3 weeks as no funeral arrangements are in place yet. In this case Uti may not return to the game."
2. "Should Uti attend the funeral only, an absence of 3 to 4 days including travel would be required. In this instance he would be accompanied by 2 chaperones, a senior member of the production team and a Nigerian who is conversant with the language of Uti’s family. This monitoring arrangement would be in place to ensure no communication with the outside world on any information which may impact on the contestant’s behaviour in the Big Brother series. Should this monitoring be judged to be effective, Big Brother would allow Uti back into the game on terms and conditions prescribed by Big Brother."
Uti and family agreed on option 2 and he can only be allowed back to the house only if the conditions are fully fulfilled and Biggie is convinced. So Uti the ball is in your coat..Meanwhile, Uti has a good game going for him after Munya who was equally good lost a few steps when he broke down and also when he thought of opting out of the house.
