One part of the gorgeous Big Brother Mzansi duo, Chelsea-Anne Humfrey took a timeout to relay all the nitty gritty shenanigans that she went through during her 56 days stay in the Big Brother House. The bubbly brunette also shed some light on why she thinks she and her partner in crime Mbali Nkosi did not win the competition. Here’s what she had to say.


QuenchSA: For all those misconceptions we might have about you, please tells us who is Chelsea-Anne Humfrey?

The bubbly personality certainly has no switch!

Chelsea: Chelsea-Anne Humfrey is a house machine, she’s got lots of energy so call her at any time of the day call her up and she’s ready for a good party. She’s a free spirited person, she comes from a background full of lots of love, different cultures, and she can be very impatient sometimes. She enjoys good things in life which could be different from everyone else for instance I love going out for cocktails, watching movies and make-up some people could like going to the club and so on…so for me different things make me happy.


QuenchSA: Why Big Brother?


Chelsea: Why not Big Brother is what I always tell people, my thing is I did not have direction in my life, I matriculated in 2012 I took a gap year and then I traveled a little bit, I went over to Asia, I traveled that continent for a while, and then I did a little bit of waitressing, I worked a little with MTV and I was like I got so much personality where do I go what do I do…so I entered Big Brother.


QuenchSA: There’s this perception that those who go to the Big Brother House are attention seekers. What’s your opinion on the matter?


Chelsea: Not necessarily attention seeking, I think most of the time people go on to Big Brother its either to help their career or to win 2 million I mean who does not want to win 2 million, it doesn’t come and go everyday like that. For me it’s completely wrong that people feel like that BB is for attention seekers. A lot of people’s career stem from being on Big Brother for a week, and it’s just about exposure I know a good friend of mine ex housemate Ex, he left in the first week, he just wanted that exposure  and he got it he’s busy. For me I was young, I wanted that money and that is what I was there for.


QuenchSA: I’m certain you prepared yourself for a multitude of things to change after leaving the Big Brother House. What change in your life has been the most difficult to grapple with?


Chelsea: It’s sad that the can be such nasty people out there, that can say such nasty things about you and they don’t even know you from a bar of soap, for me it’s having to handle people’s nasty opinions, that’s been the toughest part, you had no idea that your fan base was this big you come out of the house and there’s people that forget that it was just a game.


QuenchSA: How do you deal with hate on twitter?


Chelsea: I deal with the hate by focusing on the love that I get from my fans because there’s so much love out there than hate. If you focus on the hate it will break you.


QuenchSA: Which experience would you like to relive from the Big Brother House?


Chelsea: I think I would like to relive being put through the finale as well as learning more about myself, just learning who I am because you sit down and reflect on what the experience has taught you. If I could relive those moments just to make me an even better person.


QuenchSA: Knowing what you know now, do you have any regrets about going into the Big Brother House?


Chelsea: I have absolutely no regrets because everything I did there clearly got me to the finals, I think there’s only one thing I would change is that being aware of what you say because you don’t. You become so comfortable in the house that you forget there are cameras. I think just my swearing.


QuenchSA: So who is Big Brother?


Chelsea: I wish I knew! I don’t know, apparently people in the production say we’ve all met him before but we just don’t know, I wish I knew who he is because I think his voice is hot. I fell in love with his voice.


QuenchSA: In your humble opinion, why do you think you did not win?


Chelsea: I think people aren’t ready for change, Mbali and I didn’t have the same background as the previous winners.  Two women, who wear high fashion, worked their butts off to get here, the only couple who got nominated every week and fought for our lives. If anyone were to win beside Mbali and I it would be Ace and Ntombi. Ntombi is a close friend of mine.


QuenchSA: Who do you admire?


Chelsea: I admire Minnie Dlamini not because she’s a very good family friend of mine; but I’ve watched her from the beginning, from high school with my sister and to where she is now. She’s a mentor of mine; she’s not in the club every weekend. You see her doing women empowerment, opening up for business, making money…she’s just an incredible woman.


QuenchSA: Would you have sex on the BB house?


Chelsea: Absolutely not, (laughs) I wouldn’t have sex in the Big Brother house because first of all my parents are watching,  second of all I don’t just sleep with anybody unless I’m in a relationship with you. And it goes against everything I believe in. I wouldn’t want anyone to watch me get down and dirty.

Chelsea confesses her love for chocolate but leave no evidence on her gorgeous body


QuenchSA:  Are you dating?


Chelsea: I’m not dating anyone everybody asks me that (laughs) it’s probably because I’m focused on my future, I’m so busy. My thing is if I’m in a relationship I must give you my 100%. I can’t be busy with other stuff. I don’t mind dating but I’m not ready to be in a relationship.


QuenchSA: What’s next for Chelsea-Anne Humfrey?


Chelsea: I just relocated to Jo’burg, I’ve had a lot of auditions, I’ve had screenings with Vuzu and i think they happy with me, I did lots of interviews, we starting a new reality show with Mzansi. Oops! Expect a lot from me and Mbali. I’ve been approach by a big company to do some acting I cannot reveal anything at the moment but watch this space.

Squid Game Ending Explained; We’ve Been Scammed

Published

on

We’ve been had, and Squid Game is here to prove it.

When the end of the South Korean horror drama arrives on the ninth episode, the winner finds himself harrowed by what the coveted prize has cost his soul. In the rat race for survival, along with a better life that hinges on the never ending hustle, there’s no time to stop and see the horror our lives become. By the end, we see how the winner has sold his soul for a crappy deal that came with a few toys, and a happy meal.

A group of 456 players are mysteriously invited to take part in a set of children’s games for a grand prize of $38 million, which will be enough to give the winner the financial freedom they desperately need. The players are selected from different walks of life, with the burden of excessive debt being their biggest motivation to give the Game a go.

The first of deepening terrors comes during the first game, when the players discover that penalties for losing in the challenges will be death. DEATH. Horrified, the players initially vote to leave and return to their lives.

This noble departure doesn’t last long; their material realities as fugitives on the run from debt collectors only highlights the glow of the precious promise they’ve now left behind. When they return for the second time, they now consent to their highly probable deaths.

Led by Lee Jung-jae, who plays Seong Gi-hun, a taxi driver with a gambling addiction, the South Korean series has become somewhat of a global phenomenon. Now the most streamed Korean series of all time, Squid Game is also said to be on pace to dethrone Bridgerton as the most streamed series in the history of Netflix. And it’s with good reason. Squid Game is a trip.

Survival is the drive. The blues of a broke life pile up for Seong Gi-hun, who’s daughter is being taken away to the US by her mother and step father. His mother is battling deteriorating diabetes and even in her frail condition, is still working hard to make ends meet. It’s during the peak of his frustrations that Gi-hun is randomly invited to take part in the Game.

After accepting the offer, he finds himself in a discreet location along with 455 players, who are also drowning in debt. The players are kept under an authoritarian system of surveillance. Masked guards in pink suits keep the scene under control under the supervision of the Front Man. Gi-hun allies with other players, including his childhood friend Cho Sang-woo, as a the most strategic way to survive the bloody challenges.

Amongst those that end up in this team is player 001, a frail old man who who became his “gganbu”. Sae-byeok, who was also in the team, was killed by Sang-woo, Gi-hun’s childhood friend, team member and flip-flopping ally. Several other team members had to be killed by their team mates, which revealed the wickedness of the games.

In the end, Gi-hun’s victory came without an apology. He had to defeat a close ally in the games, the old and frail player 001. They’d bonded throughout their time, but in the end he had to advance himself against those he’d built alliances. As the games progressed, the players found themselves having to face tough calls. Someone else has to die for you to make it another day.

After a series of brutal games, it comes down to childhood friends Gi-hun and Cho Sang-woo. They’d played different games, with Sang-woo having played hard and stopping at nothing to win. Gi-hun is mad at Sang-woo for a series of betrayals, including him stabbing Sae-byeok to her death. In the end, Gi-hun wins when Sang-woo apologised and kills himself.

Yet despite emerging a winner, Gi-hun finds that the cost of becoming an overnight billionaire has bankrupted his soul. For a year following the day his bank account was loaded with a nine zero figure, he didn’t touch the money. After all, he returned to find his mother dead on the floor. One of his motivations was getting the money to get her medical help over her advancing diabetes.

THE ENDING

Gi-hun is clearly troubled by the bodies upon which his new wealth rests. A year passes and he hasn’t touched the money – even oddly reverting to old patterns of asking for loans to get by. It might be late to be so concerned about the moral questions surrounding the games now – the long and short of it is he won and his life has changed.

Later, he is shocked to find out that the “gganbu” who had to be killed after losing to him in a game of marbles, was never really killed.

In a shocking plot twist that changes everything – he also finds out that the old man is in fact the creator of the games! Finding him in a medical bed after receiving a mysterious invite to the location, Gi-hun discovers that the man’s real name is Oh Il-nam, an obscenely rich fella who created the games in 1988 (the same year Korea hosted the Olympics for the first time) purely for their entertainment. We already know by now that ‘the VIPs’ are a bunch of morally bankrupt elites who find pleasure in watching the poor masses slaughtering each other for money in a broken system. Where have we heard that before?

Although his participation in the games as player 001 was a farce, what he told Gi-hun back then, that he had a brain tumour, had been true. And of course, he challenged him to another sick game. A man had been freezing to death on a street pavement, and Oh Il-nam challenged Gi-hun to guess to bet on the odds that someone who help him when the clock strikes 00:00 at midnight. As Gi-hun wins, Oh Il-nam dies.

We assume this marks the end of the games. However later in the episode, Gi-hun sees the man who recruited him doing it to someone else. He runs to stop what is happening, but arrives at the exact scene late, the train has already taken off. Later on the way to boarding a flight, he turns and calls a number. “I can’t forgive you for everything you’re doing,” he tells ta man we assume to be In-ho. He turns back, clearly about to begin his new mission.

What we know now, is that Oh Il-nam created the games to tickle the sick tastes of his sick rich network. But he is now dead. Who is now behind the games? This, and Gi-hun’s passionate manifesto, are strong indications that next season of the series is already shaping up to a different arc. It’s his final transformation, and he is ready to take down the operation and those behind it. He won’t allow people to be “horses” for the entertainment of wealthy elites.

We know that In-ho shot Jun-ho in a bid to stop him from alerting the police about the games. The signal was bad, delaying the delivering of the evidence Jun-ho had been trying to send in several texts, right up to the moment the moment he plunged from a cliff and hit the water. What we don’t know is whether the messages were really not delivered. There’s also no conclusive evidence that Jun-ho is dead.

Potentially, the biggest lesson from season one is that our relentless pursuit for material success in a punishing money system kills us.

Midnight Mass is Creepy With A Dark Subtext and You Need To See it

‘God’s angel’ had sinister plans for the town.

Published

on

The reign of terror plunges a small and quiet town to ashes when the arrival of a charismatic yet mysterious priest coincides with the return of a disgraced young man who has just been released from prison.

While Riley (Zach Gilford) initially finds that Crockett Island and its 127 residents – along with his childhood sweetheart Erin (Kate Siegel) – still conduct a mundane existence, Pastor Paul (Hamish Linklater) soon changes that.

Midnight Mass

“The LORD’s angel”‘s life giving blood comes scams locals into horrible mistakes on Midnight Mass.

When the island’s much loved Roman Catholic senior priest takes a trip to the pilgrimage and never comes back, an energetic new priest takes his place at the Holy Land church. And while his arrival brings with it a new wave of spiritual revival amongst the island community, something sinister begins to haunt the town.

With each episode, the esoteric occult that powers Paul’s ability to perform astounding miracles and mesmerise the islanders, slowly gains dominion over the unsuspecting community. Instead, they begin taking up a renewed interest in the church as word of mouth spreads about the signs and wonders. Much like Jesus Christ was able to draw crowds wherever he went, the appearance of Paul’s supernatural power is able to attract even those who’d remained sceptics their lives.

It’s the blending of the sacred and the sinister. The taking of communion that has been contaminated with demonic blood, which functions as the miracle drug promising eternal life.

We soon find out the miracles come at an unthinkable cost.
