BBNaija 2019: Here’s why Tacha was kicked out and Mercy remained in the house



Tacha has etched her name in the book of history as one of the most talked-about ex-housemates during her 89 days stay in the BBNaija 2019 house.
Since her disqualification on Friday night, September 27, 2019 – following an altercation with a fellow and equally popular housemate, Mercy – fans and viewers kept wondering the rationale behind Biggie’s decision.
Tacha describes herself as an individual, who has always wanted to be on Big Brother Naija. Hence, the spunky 24-year-old indigene of Rivers State was willing to give it all it takes to ensure she maintains the spotlight all through. Determined to make it to the end of the show with the slogan, ‘No leave, no transfer,’ Tacha lived her life in the house with a favourite quote from Cardi B, “Do no harm but take no mess”. 
From her first week till her 13th week in the BBNaija house, Tacha made it clear that she hates gossip mongers with a passion and prefers she’s approached and sort out whatever misrepresentation.

Tacha’s aim of winning the N60 million grand prize is to invest in new business ideas, increase her family’s standard of living and start a charity foundation.
Mercy got into the house with the intent of winning the N60 million grand prize to enable her to start her fashion brand or label. The 27-year-old video vixen and businesswoman confirms that she can be crazy but remains a fun and sweet lady. With a dislike for proud people, Mercy says, “I’m grateful for every day. Being alive today is already the highest point of my life”. 
The big fight

It was early after the morning exercise routine on Friday, September 27, 2019, when the remaining 10 housemates were meant to gather in the lounger for the task ahead to be read to housemates by the Head of House, Seyi. All other nine housemates were gathered in the lounge as they expected Mercy, which didn’t go down well with Tacha. Cindy came along from the dressing room to tell Tacha that Mercy said she was stupid for all her utterances against her. And the two powerful housemates engaged in a gruesome argument that led to a lot of spiteful chants.
The dirty fight occurred barely two weeks after Big Brother magnanimously forgave house infringements and erased the strikes allowing the housemates to start on a clean slate.

The Offence
During the altercation which dragged on for over four hours – and also consumed the farewell greetings housemates were supposed to exchange with Cindy – Tacha and Mercy lost their temper and threw caution into the wind. According to the charges brought against Tacha by Biggie, through his cameras, Tacha was accused of losing her temper. She was also accused of pushing, shoving and also pulling Mercy’s hair. All these are considered as violence according to Biggie’s house rules. 
For Mercy, Biggie found her guilty of breaking the House rule of provocation, not stepping away from a volatile situation and of non-physical violence. Mercy was found guilty of stroking a chord of ember the moment she flicked her hair on Tacha just to provoke her more. 
It's unsure who Tacha would be rooting for after her disqualification but Mercy is safe for the final week. [Twitter/BBNaija]It’s unsure who Tacha would be rooting for after her disqualification but Mercy is safe for the final week. [Twitter/BBNaija]
What Biggie rule book says
The rule book clearly states in Article 18 sub-section one that, other types of violence including provocation, goading, bullying, and victimisation may be punished by Big Brother in any way Big Brother chooses.
Biggie’s Verdict

Tacha was disqualified while Mercy got herself two Strikes as a result of their fight.
For losing her temper, pushing, shoving and also pulling Mercy’s hair, Tacha was found guilty of physical violence and intent to harm the moment she shoved Mercy, and the moment she pulled her hair on two separate occasions. Biggie deemed that such physical violence had no place in Big Brother’s House – hence, her disqualification.
Biggie’s verdict on Mercy stemmed from her decision to make the situation worse by further provocating an already enraged Tacha. She got herself two strikes for such action.
