Dorathy Bachor, a former Big Brother Naija contestant, has disclosed how her anger after losing two jobs brought her into the reality show home.
Bachor, who finished first runner-up in the reality show’s 2020 season, said, “I was just that girl hustling and trying to make ends meet, but it wasn’t working.” I couldn’t hold down a single task, and I recall doing two. However, I was shot from one and had to quit the other as well. I become depressed as well, but I realised that running a company was something I truly needed to do. I needed to get a voice where people could see me and learn about what I do. That’s why I entered the competition (BBN).”
Now one of the most influential ex housemates of the reality show, Ms Bachor also stated that two months after she got out of the competition, she did not spend a dime of her money because she was bombarded with daily gifts.
“For two months after the show, I did not use my money to buy anything. I was constantly getting gifts and I still do not understand it. I felt that because people watched me every day and there is something about me they can relate to, they wanted to show me love and give me gifts.”
The social media influencer even revealed that she was self-conscious when she first started watching the reality show. “I was conscious of myself while I was in the house,” she said. I was always fussy with my angles. It has nothing to do with my not being myself. It was my first time on tape, so I had to check in on every aspect of myself. I was really aware for the first few weeks, but after that, it just felt like I was living my life.
“I am someone who always wants to be behind the scene. I was scared of public opinions and how people would see me. I visited blogs sometimes and I saw how ‘crazy’ people could be and how they always had opinions about other people, and I didn’t want that for myself.
