Biggie deemed that such physical violence has no place in Big Brother’s house.
In the case of Mercy, Biggie found her guilty of breaking the house rule of provocation, not stepping away from a volatile situation and of non-physical violence.
The moment she flicked her hair on Tacha, she only made the situation even worse and was issued two strikes. This means, one more strike and she will be disqualified from the Big Brother house.
