“The settings in the shower area were very uncomfortable for me” – Lucy
We asked Lucy what was the most challenging dynamics for her during her short spell back on the show. She said the bathroom arrangement is where male and female housemates take their showers in an open environment.
“For me, the most challenging thing was just the open-plan bathroom system, other than that, I think everything else was ok. The settings with the shower area was hmmm.”
When we pressed further to understand the situation, Lucy replied that since they didn't show it on TV, she wasn't willing to share more details about it.

Edet, throughout the interview, seemed quite feisty and tried as much as possible to be restrictive with some of her replies but noted when asked why she didn't bring that kind of fire while on the show, she said:
“I knew I would be in the house for just two weeks, so I didn't feel the need to serve to violence. And yes, when we were going in, Biggie had told us not to stir things up more but instead douse the tension and fire brewing in the house.”
Lucy also explained that she was willing to destroy her brand, which took her years to build.
“Plus, I don't want to destroy my brand that took me years build. There is already a narrative about me in the public I didn't feel the need to fuel it further. So yes, I was calmer and more mature during this edition. Also, knowing all along I was going to only be in the house for just two weeks.”

“I wasn't there for the money” – Lockdown star shared
The reality TV star spoke about the money situation, and she noted that she didn't go back into the house because of the money but to promote her brand further.
“I knew I couldn't win; I was an original housemate, so why risk my brand for the entertainment of a few who, most times, don't know how mentally tasking it is to be in that house?”
The Calabar reality TV noted that going back into the house, she didn't have a game plan, and she gave her reasons for that.
“I didn't have a game plan going back into the house. I wasn't there for the money so what did I need a gameplan for.”
“I thought I would be happy, but that wasn't the case, that's why I wanted to leave” – Edet noted
Lucy also shared why she decided to leave the show barely 24 hours after entering the house and was jittery.

“I expected I would be happy, but that wasn't the case. I was way much more excited to be in the house the last time than now. Yes, now I was in the company of friends and felt loved, but things weren't the same; I was just not happy.”
“After leaving the house, life is a lot tougher” – BBN Star notes
At this point, the reality TV star shared a heartfelt message, noting that it is quite tasking to be on the show and even more demanding after leaving the house and dealing with all that comes after.
“It is a lot being on the show. It is mentally tasking. While on the show, housemates try very hard to entertain the viewers but sometimes only come out to experience fierce hate and trolling, especially on social media.”
“The media need to tone it down with their captions” – Lucy pleaded
The reality TV star also pleated with the media to tone it down with their captions and how they sell their stories about housemates.
Lucy gave an example of such comments, saying:
“Some would just come on my page and say go and marry. Like as if that's all there is to life. Can a person not stable bring someone else into their unstable life?”
