Bigg Boss 11, Episode 16, 17 October 2017: Vikas stripped of captaincy, sent to jail
After Lucinda’s surprise eviction, it’s now time for the contestants to gear up for the next Luxury Budget task. But even before the task begins, we witness some major fights. Akash, who has been showing a lot of passion for housework these days, terms Benafsha a ‘Kaamchor’ and yells at her, calling out her involvement in the house as minimal.
He even says that she is getting fat as she is just sitting around doing nothing. Benafsha takes offence to Akash’s personal comment and keeps sweeping the floor for the next few hours and, mockingly, keeps addressing him ‘Sir’. Hiten says Akash just can’t take failure. Shilpa and Vikas are seen having a chat, where Vikas apologises for all the trouble he has caused her in the Bigg Boss house and is seen hugging her.
Later, Bandagi advises Puneesh to not get involved in other people’s matters as she overheard Vikas saying that he will nominate Puneesh for the same reason. Puneesh loses his cool and lashes out at Vikas making it clear to him that he is not afraid of getting evicted. This incident also causes a rift between Puneesh and Bandagi. Puneesh leaves no stone unturned to get her to smile again and eat some food, so that she doesn’t go hungry.
The lawn area in the Bigg Boss house is converted into a junkyard for the Luxury Budget task. Vikas’ team takes on Puneesh’s team mates. The task requires all team members to rest their chins on their respective stands. The other team targets two of each team at one go, and do all they can to ensure that they move their face off the stands’ chinrest. The attacking team is allowed to use everything possible, apart from applying physical force, to achieve the goal.
Today’s episode will definitely not be for the faint hearted. Ice, ice water, cowdung, eggs...everything possible is used to attack the opposite team. Things get worse as Puneesh throws water on Vikas’ face with a lot of pressure. Looks like it hurts Vikas’ eye very badly as he starts shouting and attacks Puneesh. Vikas is out of the game and he is taken for first aid. However, some of the contestants in the opposition feel that Vikas was acting because if others were able to bear all kinds of 'brutalities', he should have been able to face the same.
Benafsha is attacked next and she too backs out. Next was Mehjabi, who couldn’t take the ice water that was put on her. She starts yelling and threatens Arshi, who is seen pouring ice water on her. This is when Vikas tries to calm her and takes her away as Shilpa was also doing the same. She slightly pats Vikas on his back, but Vikas is not able to take that pat and is about to hit Shilpa, but Luv intervenes and starts yelling at Vikas. Hiten and Hina are the two last survivors. Hina performs the task brilliantly as she resists all the attacks till the end.
Since Vikas attacked Puneesh, he had to bear the punishment. He is stripped off his captaincy and sent to jail. It is also announced that he won’t be able to be the captain till he is there inside the house. Puneesh is made the captain until the next nomination for captaincy happens. Shilpa and Akash are happy with this decision, whereas Arshi and Benafsha appear hugely disappointed.
