Bigg Boss 11, Episode 22, 23 October 2017: Drama, fights, tears courtesy Hina and Akash
When Dhinchak Pooja made a wild card entry on Bigg Boss 11, everyone, right from show host Salman Khan to the contestants couldn’t believe it; they had the most epic reaction. For instance, Salman said that this was his last season, and Hina wanted to go back to sleep. In fact, Hina and Shilpa were seen bullying her as soon as she stepped in. Believe it or not, tonight’s episode started with housemates panicking after knowing that Dhinchak has lice in her hair. All the contestants discuss and finally request Bigg Boss to send her a medicine. However, the contestants finally make Dhinchak Pooja feel at home and the latter too tries to mingle with everybody.
Bigg Boss reprimands contestants for breaking rules of the house, and announces names of contestants nominated for this week’s eviction. He gives them a ‘Friendship’ task, where tempers were seen flaring and some were seen pacifying the others.
While the gharwaale’ can’t seem to get over Dhinchak Pooja’s songs, she and Akash get together to try to entertain their co-contestants. They belt out the ‘Selfie’ rap song, together, for everyone. However, this new twist in the house has many contestants changing their game plan, as Dhinchak Pooja too, is now a contender for the highly coveted winner’s spot. Meanwhile, Arshi and Puneesh have ganged up, they are seen bitching about Hiten and Hina, and both decide to nominate the latter two contestants.
As it’s Monday, it’s also time for nominations. Bigg Boss announces that Hina and Dhinchak Pooja are safe from the danger zone. Bigg Boss feels that it’s time for contestants to learn a lesson for breaking the rules of the Bigg Boss house, despite giving strict warnings. As a punishment, for this week’s eviction, Bigg Boss himself chooses six contestants as nominations and that include, Bandagi, Shilpa, Arshi, Vikas, Mehjabi and Puneesh
A major twist is hidden in the friendship next task - where the nominated contestants get a chance to save themselves from nomination. There is a friendship wall built in the lawn area. Bigg Boss pairs the six nominated contestants with six non-nominated contestants. The nominated contestant has to hold the non–nominated contestants hand through a hole in the friendship wall. If the nominated contestant leaves his/her partner’s hand within half an hour, the nominated contestant is declared safe and the non–nominated contestant takes their place. During the game, the safe contestant has to convince the nominated contestant to not leave his/her hand at any cost.
The first two pairs are Arshi and Benafsha, and Shilpa and Hiten. Arshi leaves Benafsha’s hand, and hence the latter gets nominated. Shilpa doesn’t leave Hiten’s hand and continues to be nominated. Puneesh and Sapna are the next pair, and he leaves her hand, hence nominating Sapna. Bandagi too leaves Luv'ss hand. Mehjabi leaves Jyoti’s hand. Vikas keeps holding Sabyasachi’s hand. Although Hina is safe, she gets to hold Akash’s hand and she’s elated.
Since Akash didn’t obey her earlier, Hina leaves his hand and therefore he continues to be nominated. As the task comes to an end, they get into an intense fight where Akash calls Hina a ‘Loser Captain’ and tells her that she does not deserve to be the captain. On one hand, we shouts at the top of his voice that Hina only knows how to do drama, and on the other hand, Hina keeps mocking Akash, singing Salman’s ‘Dhinka Chika’ song, instigating him even further.
Shilpa, Benafsha, Luv, Sapna, Jyoti, Vikas and Akash are announced to be in the danger zone this week. The fight between Hina and Akash doesn’t stop. Akash keeps yelling in the house and taunts Hina non-stop. Hina then tells Puneesh that he provokes Akash and that starts an argument between Puneesh and Hina.
