WHEN Big Brother Africa Revolution evictee Leonel first walked into the house, he looked around and asked where the ladies were.

"We managed to live without them for two weeks and it was so good" Lionel said yesterday. "It was a time when the guys bonded. I told the guys that this experience was like boot camp and we needed to survive as men, even though we would all have liked a little more action with some ladies."

While he struck up friendships with the women, Leonel said "it was not part of my strategy".

"It just came naturally that I developed these friendships. Mzamo and I only shared hugs and kisses. Our relationship had started to grow but I pulled back because even though I did have feelings for her, I was not comfortable because they were not strong enough to sustain.

"I did not think we would survive out of the house.

"I was a bit shocked to see that Mzamo and Geraldine had voted me off but it was all about alliances. Mine was not too strong and our numbers had decreased after Elizabeth had been voted off last week.

"We were still recovering and did not have an opportunity to discuss the next eviction. Some of my allies were convinced by the other alliance to vote me off."

Mozambique's first representative on the show was encouraged by an ex-colleague to enter Big Brother.

"She saw ane-mail inviting people to audition and she said: 'You are funny, you speak English and you just may win'."

Leonel is rooting for Kevin or Emma to win.
