Big Brother 6Edit
On Day 1, Makosi was set a task to try and receive the most nominations from her fellow housemates. On Day 4, Makosi passed the task and was therefore immune from eviction. On Day 5, Makosi was told that, as she had passed the task, she must choose which two housemates should face the public vote that week; she chose Craig and Mary as her nominations. On Day 12, it was revealed to the House that all housemates would face the public vote as a result of one housemate breaking the rules regarding the discussion of nominations; this housemate was Vanessa. On Day 15, Makosi survived the public vote and Lesley was evicted from the House. Big Brother told the housemates that the nominations on Day 46 were optional. However, this was a lie. As always, nominations were compulsory; and those that did not nominate would face the public vote. As Makosi did not nominate, she faced the public vote. On Day 50, it was revealed to the House that Vanessa and Makosi had received the most public votes after receiving 26% and 47% of the vote respectively. The housemates were then told to decide which of the two should be evicted from the House. After receiving just one of the possible seven votes, Makosi survived the eviction and remained in the House. She finished the series in third place with 8.7% of the public vote, and left the House on Day 78.
