Big Brother Amplified:Nigerian girl, Igho, wins BBA $200,000 grand prize
MISS Karen Igho has become the third Nigerian, in a row, to have become a millionaire courtesy of Mnet and its Big Brother TV reality show.
She grabbed the whopping $200,000 grand prize, along with Wendall (Zimbabwe) at the end of the 91-day show, which ended last night
The first Nigerian to win the $200,000, which is usually at stake was Kevin Pam; he won in 2009 edition. His pioneering feat was repeated by Uti Nwachukwu who smiled home to Nigeria in 2010 from South Africa with $200,000 when he was declared the winner of Big Brother All Stars.
She had in abundance, her ‘plastic’ boobs which she flaunted and which made her the cynosure of viewers’ eyes that fateful day the host of the show, IK, ushered her into the Big Brother’s house.
It is also on record that 27 years old Karen is one of the few housemates that were not nominated more than twice for eviction all through the duration of the show.
