Karen Igho, won the Big Brother Africa (BBA) reality show, otherwise known as Big Brother Amplified, making her the third Nigerian to do so in a row. Karen alongside her Zimbabwean Housemate Wendall Parson emerged winners at the Big Brother Amplified finale. They would get both get $200,000 each. To ardent Nigerian watchers of the show, Karen was the opposite of the Nigerian character. Her guts, swaggs, actions and inactions, earned her much critique here in Nigeria. But amid this hatred from countrymen, Karen emerged victorious. Though most Nigerians hated her guts and called her all sorts of names; uncultured,ill mannered,unrefined and crass to start with, however they said she represented the country in the BBA reality show for all the wrong reasons just because she allegedly chose to be herself which, interestingly, is the essence of Big Brother worldwide. While her country men and women proved her biggest critics, viewers from other lands adored her; they cheered and applauded all her actions and mannerism in the house. Having grabbed the $200,000 grand prize, she has become the third Nigerian, in a row, to become a millionaire courtesy,Mnet and its Big Brother TV reality show. The first Nigerian to win the $200,000 wasKevin Pam; he won the 2009 edition. His pioneering feat was repeated by Uti Nwachukwu who smiled home to Nigeria with $200,000 in 2010 when he was declared the winner of Big Brother All Stars. As for Karen, who made headlines news back here on account of her breasts enlargements and outspoken nature, indeed life would never be the same again. Her holier-than-thou critics failed to realise that in a reality show like BBA, every contestant and, in this case, housemates, comes into the show armed with strategy on how to outwit each other to win the money involved. Apparently it seems Karen has the last laugh after all! Via Vanguard newspapers
