She was one of the female housemates who was involved in one drama or the other and was popular for breaking down in tears.
Before Tolani Baj's exit from the house, she and Ilebaye had some heated moments over their male colleague Neo.
This is the first time Ilebaye would make it to the finals, having been evicted from the Level Up edition in 2022.
2. Cross Da Boss purchased immunity
Unlike Ilebaye, this is the second time Cross would make it to the final week, as he finished in the fourth position during the Shine Ya Eye edition.
One of the highlights of Cross' stay in the house was when he became the first housemate to take food to the diary session.
Another was when he became the HoH and went on to pick only male housemates to stay with him in the exclusive longue.
3. Mercy Eke, the former winner who wants to win again
Mercy Eke made it to this season's list of finalists after she had the least nominations during the last eviction nominations in the house.
This is the second time Mercy would be making it to the finals as she emerged as the winner of the PepperDem season.
Her record as a past winner has made some viewers campaign against her, which saw actress Anita Joseph taking to social media to defend her.
One of Mercy's highlights in the house was her drama with ex-lover Ike and her friendship with Whitemoney.
4. Cee-C, One time finalist
Cee-C became the third finalist on the All Stars edition during the final Black Envelope game in the house.
She was a finalist in the Double Wahala season, and this could be her chance to emerge as the winner.
One of the moments Cee-C made headlines was when she had a messy fight with her younger colleague Ilebaye that saw them calling each other unprintable names.
At some points in the house, billionaire son Kiddwaya offered to give Cee-C N120m if she agreed to exit the show.
5. Adekunle, the second Level Up housemate on the finalist
Ilebaye and Adekunle were housemates in the Level Up season. However, unlike the Gen Z Baddie, this is the second time he would be finishing as a finalist, having finished fourth place in 2022.
Pere, the many stars General
Like Adekunle, Pere made it to the finals after escaping the last eviction.
Pere is the second Shine Ya Eye edition housemate who made it to the last stage this season.
The actor made headlines after he punched a hole into the wall during an exchange with Doyin that almost turned physical.
Another highlight was the moment Pere broke down in tears after the house's parrots revealed what some housemates said about him.
Why Mercy Eke was issued a strike
Legit.ng previously reported that Mercy Eke was issued a strike for violating the house's microphone and whispering rules.
The 'Pepper Dem Gang' winner was struck by Biggie on Thursday evening, September 8, 2023.
Biggie also warned Mercy that she would be evicted from the show if she was issued two more strikes.
