Viewers of the popular Mzansi Magic reality television series Big Brother Mzansi (BBM) Season 3 learnt on Wednesday that a housemate who barely lasted more than two days was kissing local screens goodbye.

But the show has now suffered its first casualty in the form of 24-year-old Keamogetswe "QV" Motlhale, who hails from Mahikeng. The marketing communications graduate lasted just over two days before deciding she'd had her fill.

She cited "personal reasons" for the move and is now in the process of receiving psychological counselling, News24 reported. Viewers of the show will recall how housemates were prompted to share their life stories, some of which were triggering, as part of a task handed to them.

Keamogetswe shared that she was sexually abused on several occasions as a child. In an emotional moment for her, she bid farewell to the other 17 housemates and exited the show.

But that was far from the only thing that locals zoned in on, as the housemates' floral, tropical and beach-themed dress wear received heavy criticism. Viewers questioned the "creative" behind the wardrobe as they looked anything but the star quality Mzansi was hoping for, reported The Citizen.
