The first housemate to be evicted on the final day was Vee followed by Neo. Nengi got the booth the Dorathy before Laycon was announced the winner of season 5.
A flashback shows how the show started off with the evictions of Lilo, Kat3na then Eric and Tochi. Also Praise was evicted then TolaniBaj , Wathoni, Brighto got the booth.

Also Lucy was evicted that same night. Kaisha left after her spat with Nengi.
Kiddwaya and Prince were shown their way out , dashing the hope of many who believed in them. Then followed Trickytee and Ozo who became like the highlight of this edition for his lust or love for Nengi who doesn’t give a hoot about him.
Vee and Neo were the underrated housemates of 2020 lockdown that nobody expected would get to the Top 5.
On the Saturday final house party, all the evicted housemates were invited to come party with the finalists but only the disqualified Erica was unequivocally left out.
It was tears for Nengi who said Ozo her supped crush and a few other housemates ignored her at the party, same housemates and many fans whose Ozo’s obsession made them dislike her. Vee also spoke about some housemates who refused to exchange pleasantries , adding that she don’t care about what they think about her.
At the final diary session, #BBVee says her time in Biggies House has been fun, fun, fun and emotional, but overall she really enjoyed the ups and downs.
#BBNeo is so grateful to be here and has big plans for himself after the journey in the House, starting with the family first.
