The BBNaija “Pepper Dem” Reunion Show ended this week with less drama, but with more insight into the psychology of the housemates before and after their stay in Biggie’s house.
This week’s show was about the mental health evaluation of the housemates by a guest psychiatrist, Doctor Oluseun Ogunnubi.
The show’s special guest took turns discussing some of the housemates’ struggles during and after the competition.
The doctor analysed the housemates, and we learned a lot more about their emotions, and if his analyses of them were true or not.
Below is a little of the evaluation
Ella’s evaluation centred around issues with the other housemates, family, to building her career.
Ella still on the journey to not seeking validation. But the doctor said it’s not necessarily a bad thing to seek validation. We’re social animals
The spotlight can really sweep you away, but Ella has made peace with herself. She’s trusting herself, trusting her voice, focusing on the music: Go into the studio, sing put, out music, and continue to grow. That’s the plan!
The doctor disclosed he was a Titan even before she got into the house, but he felt Tacha was trying to play the “CeecC character”, in the house, but after a while, her character began to peek through, showing itself, according to the doctor.
Tacha stated that she tried to mask her emotions because it was a game. Feelings would complicate things, distracting her. She knows no one is an island, but she tries to not depend on people too much because anyone can disappoint.
She said her encounters in the house with other housemates were “more of defence mechanism”. Outside the house, when she feels offended by someone, she either let things go, or she calls the person up to talk it out.
But the one thing that certainly held Tacha after her disqualification, was the love she received from her supporters.
The doctor said, “Frodd is a fraud”. According to him, Frodd played into the sentimental emotions of people, and he played the game well.
The doctor thinks Frodd didn’t do too well when it comes to interpersonal relationships.
Frodd opened up about growing up, saying his mother taught him to be expressive. He spoke about his journey to the Big Brother house, weighing if he should or shouldn’t leave his mum for the opportunity. He felt the housemates saw everything as a game, and they tried to bully him. And he never stood for that.
Frodd explained to the doctor why he was always afraid during the eviction shows. His reason was that he was afraid of his mum’s situation outside the house.
Omashola‘s psychoanalysis revolved around how he struggled to balance his impulsive and loud reactions during the show and in the real world.
Omashola revealed that he still struggled with the hurt from his ex’s unrequited love and had hoped to take advantage of the girls in the house.
Jackye disclosed her struggle with cyberbullying and keeping up with social media trends.
The doctor analysed her to be oppressive and unrelatable. Jackye explained that while she didn’t plan on winning, she had intended to portray the Nigerian woman differently and the game to her was to express her intelligence.
Going on, she admitted to struggling with the dilemma to either stay true to herself or join the winning team.
