ETHIOPIAN Yacob Yehdego said it was liberating to be outside in the real world though he was disappointed to be out of the Big Brothershow.

ETHIOPIAN Yacob Yehdego said it was liberating to be outside in the real world though he was disappointed to be out of the Big Brothershow.

Yacob and Hannington Kuteesa of Uganda were the latest casualties. Hannington was a popular oke but his friendship with Yacob cost him dearly.

They both denied having sex in the house.

"Not that I was not willing but the one I fancied told me she had a boyfriend," Yacob said.

Hannington said there was nothing wrong with the girls but the idea that they would go their separate ways afterwards was a damper.

"There was no real intimacy. We had fun. We kissed and messed around but did not have sex," Hannington said.

He said he would not have any explanations to make back home because he did not have a girlfriend. He had discussed participating in the show with his mother, who told him that he was old enough to make up his own mind.

For Yacob the five-week routine was a killer. The only change was when they nominated those who would be kicked out.

"I learnt to live with 25 people as a community. It had its good, bad and sad parts. It was a learning experience I can take back home with me. But the boredom was an absolute killer."

The only regret Yacob has is that he is leaving home without the R1,6million prize with which he had hoped to start up a business in his home town.
