WILD CARDS: The BBNaija 2021 housemates have had their stomachs twisted in a nut since arrival in Big Brother’s house. They were met with a twist about two housemates being wild cards. Even more, they were tasked with deducing the identities of said special housemates by Thursday evening. Both contestants and viewers have since then gone full-on Matlock analysing the housemates; breaking down characters, listening for telling undertones, and just about anything that could help. However, it has simply been anyone’s guess – no closer or farther from the confusion on Day One.
The most guesses from viewers have pegged Liquorose and Whitemoney to be the wild cards. Yousef, the housemate who talked about how much love interest he is accustomed to receiving from his students even thought he might be the wild card. He revealed this to some of the housemates in confusion.
Now with Biggie finally pulling the curtains apart, Maria and Pere have been revealed as the wild cards.

To be clear: had the housemates guessed their identities correctly, they would both have been up for automatic eviction. Keeping their cards excellently close to their chests, on the other hand, finds them secure in the safe zone until the next surprise being expected to be sprung on the housemates.
Confirming their wild card status, Big Brother asked both Maria and Pere how they felt about discovering the existence of another wild card asides themselves. They also got a chance to guess who the other wild card could be.
