    Meaning of the sentence

    It's been hardly two weeks since Baba entered the house. The housemates had just started getting pally to him. But the audience verdict is always final. Baba is evicted. Ravi, Rahul and Carol had nominated Baba for eviction this week. All of them had more or less given the same reason for nominating him - he is like a guest and they had no emotional connect with him.

    What is the meaning of the (pally, evicted, nominated) in the above paragraph?

    Sounds like an episode of one of those reality TV shows where a bunch of different people live together, and then the viewing audience votes each week on which person is thrown out.

    "Pally" is a slang word meaning "friendly."
    "Evicted" means thrown out, or forcibly removed.
    "Nominated" means to be proposed or suggested for an office or an honor. In this case, it means the others suggested that Baba be the next person evicted from the apartment.
