BBNaija: Pere evicted, emerges second runner up of season 6

Big Brother Naija, BBNaija season 6 housemate, Pere has emerged as the second runner up of the reality show. He was the fourth housemate to be evicted from the ‘Shine Ya Eye’ edition after Cross, Emmanuel and Angel. This may come as a surprise to some viewers as Pere’s stay in the house was marred from being the wild-card to the twist last week which had him battle for top six with Angel. Pere known as ‘The General’ was criticised during his reign as the head of house and how he spoke to the housemates. However, this turned out in his favour as the last weeks of the house saw Pere mingle with housemates, a developemnt that apparently won him many fans.

Five-Month Pregnant Montano Runs 800m Race

American runner Alysia Montano stole the headlines on Thursday at the USA Track and Field Championships despite not winning the race. The 31-year-old athlete remarkably ran the two laps while five months pregnant with her second child, much to the delight of the crowd. She finished more than 19 seconds behind the winner on Thursday in extreme heat, recording a time of 2 minutes, 21.40 seconds. Montano, whose child is due in November, seemed to cherish the occasion as she was pictured finishing the race at the Hornet Stadium with a huge grin on her face while wearing a Wonder Woman top and a trademark flower in her hair. However, this isn’t the first time she has done the extraordinary and competed while carrying a child. Back in 2014, Montano ran in exactly the same race at ...
