Following last week’s shock eviction of two housemates, this week’s Big Brother Mzansi saw Thando ‘Acacia’ Mati eliminated from the competition, much to the relief of the remaining Housemates.
Speaking to host Lawrence Maleka after her eviction, Acacia said she was sad but excited to see her daughter again. “It’s been very hard to shut out that part of my life.”
We have an Eviction! Acacia is on her way out the #BBMzansi House!!! She can’t believe it…

About her time in the House and her image as more of a boys’ girl, she said: “I tried to steer clear from the ladies and be more with the gents, and I guess that was also just a problem.” Regarding her several rivalries and tensions in the house, Acacia said: “I am generally a [confrontational person]. Addressing things gives me peace.”
The 30-year-old model from Soweto also addressed her flirtatious vibes with fellow Housemate B.U., and particularly the realisation that she wasn’t the only lady in the House he was hitting it off with. Acacia explained, “I was really mad about it, but I felt better once I addressed it, because I’m that girl.”
Also, up for eviction this week were Mphowabadimo, Nale, Zino, Themba, and newcomers Vyno and Nthabii. Both Acacia and Mphowabadimo were up for eviction for the second week in a row, with Head of House Sis Tamara saying that the evicted Acacia had “forgotten why she [was] on the show”.
Deputy Head of House this week was Yoli. This week’s eviction brings the remaining number of Housemates to 16. This follows a dramatic week where tension started showing between Housemates, from potential romances gone wrong to some Housemates giving each other the silent treatment.
But not everything was drama, a genuine romance bloomed in the house, Vyno and former Head of House Terry coming out as a couple, the first official lovers on the show.
