“The first time I entered the Big Brother House, it was all sunshine and smiles. I played the game, emerged victorious, and thought it was all smooth sailing. But the second time around, I realized that some people were hesitant to support me because they felt ‘once a winner, always a winner,'” she disclosed.

Mercy elaborated, revealing the perception that she had already achieved success and shouldn’t strive for more. “They thought, ‘She’s already rich, let someone else have a chance.’ It was as though there was an allergy to winners,” she lamented.
