Big Brother Naija season six has witnessed twists and turns unlike previous editions. Organisers of the show Multichoice Nigeria have been very innovative in the concept this year, surprising fans with every move.
It is very easy for one to get tired of a routine little wonder the introduction of twists to sustain interest and suspicion. Many of the innovations introduced this season in the reality TV show has kept fans and viewers on their toes.
I will dissect below six things that have made this year's edition stand out from previous ones.
1. Double launch show
Ebuka Obi-Uchendu returned to the excitement of many as host of this season. But the first distinct thing about this year's edition of Big Brother Naija is the double launch.
Eleven males were first introduced on July 24 while eleven females joined on July 25.
It was the first in the history of the show. In previous editions, 20 housemates — 10 males and 10 females — were introduced on the same day.
Big Brother introduced wildcards for the first time this season. They were Maria and Pere. The wildcards were rebranded versions of fake housemates in previous editions. Housemates were given a task of unmasking the wildcards within one week, a task which they failed. Obviously, the beautiful Maria and sexy Pere played their "cards" well and earned their spots in the house.
3. New housemates midway
Biggie pulled off a huge surprise on August 8 when he introduced four new housemates into the house — Michael, Kayvee, JMK and Queen.
All of them promised to bring much-needed spice to the house. Kayvee also set a personal record by becoming the first housemate in the history of the show to voluntarily withdraw midway. He withdrew due to health reasons.
4. Head of house prank
For the first time in the show, Big Brother told head of house at the time, Maria, to make housemates believe they needed to impress her to save themselves from eviction. In truth, there wasn't going to be any eviction. Trust Maria to play the role well.

5. Prank on lovers
Big Brother introduced another first of its kind move when he asked Liquorose and Saga separately to start up prank fights with their lovers — Emmanuel and Nini respectively.
While Liquorose pulled hers off seamlessly, Saga did not have the mental strength to successfully complete the task. Well, he was punished for snitching on Biggie.
6. Ultimate veto power
On September 20, Biggie scrapped the nomination and head of house game and introduced a new system called ultimate veto power. Winner of the Monday evening game Emmanuel was given ultimate veto power to nominate head of house and deputy. Unsurprisingly, he picked Liquorose as head of house and Cross as deputy, effectively sending Whitemoney, Pere, Queen, Angel, Saga and Nini to the possible eviction table.
