The new HOH had beaten other housemates in the head of house games and was therefore given the office in recognition of his victory.
On the day of the announcement, level 1 and level 2 housemates had met each other during the HOH games. But before then, Biggie had explained how the housemates happen to be in separate houses in the game.
The HOH games were in two stages, with all participating in the first stage. For the second stage, however, only the best five participated. The top five were Khalid, Eloswag, Dotun, Cyph, and Bryann.
At the end of the day, Eloswag had emerged victorious and was crowned accordingly. He will hold the position for a week before handing over to another housemate who wins another HOH game,
By the way, as the new HOH, Eloswag has earned some sway – sorry, privileges. As the new head of house, he has his personal bedroom and immunity from eviction at the end of the week. But, that aside, he has the exquisite pleasure of being the first head of house this season.
