Twin Twist: Edward Moongo & Erastus Moongo competed as one housemate for the first two weeks. If they survived those two weeks, they could compete as individuals in the game. The brothers were successful and competed as individuals starting Week 3. All-Male House: Twelve guy housemates entered the house on Day 1. After George Wayoe & Teddy Muthusi's eviction, the girl housemates entered in a secret room and spied on the all-male house for a week, before entering the house as housemates. Multiple Evicted: For the first time in the African series, housemates could be evicted in doubles or triples. Five double evictions occurred and one triple eviction occurred throughout the season, not counting Jennifer's walking as another double eviction. Pairs: For Weeks 5 through 7, housemates competed in pairs. They would be nominated together, saved by the Head of House together, and be evicted together. Diary sessions were still individual.
