While in the house, the trio never revealed any hint that they had known each other before entering the house, especially with Rico paired with Ahneeka, BamBam with Teddy A and Princess with Bitto.
Rico Swavey, however, burst the bubble when he revealed that he and Princess had a romantic relationship while he had worked with BamBam before the show which left fans and fellow ex-housemates shocked.
