As the quest enters its final phase in the race for the final 10 contenders the duo of Michel Majid and Queen Nwokoye have crashed out after failing to boost their votes to stay in the quest.
Queen had it coming because as at last week she was sitting at precipice of the ‘drop zone’ at 14th position and it appears she could do little or nothing to prevent her exit from the quest.
Michel Majid on the other hand, wasn’t the last man to the ‘drop zone’, all eyes were on Pat Attah who looked like the next man in line to get the boot but somehow he has been able to trade places with Michel who is on his way out.
All in all, though the week was a busy one with more votes coming in but things have remained pretty much the same except for some expressions of serious intent.
The toughest battle zone seems to be at the very top between Tonto Dikeh and Stephanie Okereke. Though Tonto still retains her top slot but Stephanie is breathing down her neck so hard that if nothing extraordinary happens from the camp of Tonto she may find herself being shoved aside by Stephanie who is definitely an item to look out for.
Yul Edochie still has his foot to the gas and seems to be enjoying his cruise control drive with no one in sight, at least within the earshot, to give him any concern.
Another interesting conflict zone is between Benson Okonkwo and Pope Odonwondo; both are in 4th and 5th places respectively but the fight between them is a sight to behold!
These two chaps had more votes this past week more than anybody with the exception of Yul Edochie and Uti Nwachukwu who are not resting on their oars despite the difference in their positions.
The battle is so intense that anything can happen. They are both very restless in their 4th and 5th places that Frank Artus may very well be on the red alert.
Ramsey Nouah isn’t yet threatened in his 2nd place but it wouldn’t be a bad idea if he gets to watch his back every now and then. The only person who seems to be taking everything and every moment like there’s war out there is Yul Edochie and isn’t letting anyone sneak up on him.
Nadia Buari, Biodun Okeowo and Uche Jombo are looking rather tired and disinterested with intense proceedings going on around them and before long may have to take a breather.
As they say: never say never again and as far as we have come to know in this quest for the Sexiest Man and Woman in Nollywood 2013 anything can happen any time. Keep voting.
