Uriel Oputa, a former housemate on Big Brother Naija All Stars, has requested that the elimination jury system be eliminated.
Uriel was eliminated from the competition on Sunday after receiving two of the three jury members’ votes, but not receiving the least amount of support from viewers.
Uriel acknowledged that she will not take home the N120 million grand prize but expressed the desire to remain in the house for a longer period of time in an interview with Cool FM Nigeria, Lagos.
I’m clearly not happy about it [being evicted], even if I didn’t receive the fewest votes from the fans. Simply put, I feel as though I was denied an opportunity that I shouldn’t have been denied.
“I was providing fantastic highlights and substance. My eviction seemed to me to have occurred far too soon. I wished to remain more time. To be completely honest with you, I wasn’t sure whether I would succeed and winning wasn’t my goal. I merely desired to remain there long enough.
“I feel like the jury situation left me with a slight bad taste. I believe the organizers ought to drop the idea. And they better add me back in if they do indeed scrap it.
