BBNaija Shine Ya Eye housemates, Pere and Jackie B seem to be getting closer than viewers and fans are expecting.
From prolonged eye contact, seductive tones and lots of one-on- one time, the two housemates are building deeper connections with each other while spending every waking moment with the other 20 housemates.
Although Pere has a naturally striking talking voice, he takes on a deeper and more velvety smooth drawl that gives off flirting vibes when Jackie B is around.
Interestingly, Jackie B, on the other hand, has been doing what she needs to do too; from holding his gaze a tad longer than usual, to listening intently and hanging on to his every word.
On their fourth day in the house, Pere and Jackie B sat together and chatted about love and relationships, as well as what they’ve been through in the afternoon while others took naps.
Pere opened up about how he always has his guard up because of heartbreak saying, “I’m shy and I shield my emotions. I’m actually a sensitive, emotional person. I’m a Cancer.”
Later, Pere and Jackie B retreated to the bedroom where they carried on their conversation about relationships.
Pere then asked Jackie what she looks for in a man and Jackie B gave it all out.
“I don’t like a man who doesn’t know what he wants. He must be in control of his life. A man has to be very direct with his approach. I will get bored of the flirting. I need to know what’s next,” she said.
When Pere asked Jackie B if she’s looking for a relationship in the House, she told him she’s open to it.
After his lengthy conversation with Jackie B, Pere headed to the garden to mull things over and have a word with Emmanuel about his predicament.
“I’m scared. You can like a person, but there’s no way of knowing if she likes you back.
“You just never know if the person is as interested in you, as you are in them. Also, if you catch a cruise, for how long? What happens next?”
