Bigg Boss 11, Episode 23, 24 October 2017: Hiten Tejwani finally loses his cool
The Bigg Boss ‘gharwaale’ are going to put their best foot forward today, with every contestant keen on becoming the next captain in the Bigg Boss house. The privilege of captaincy will only be given to a contestant from the winning team in this Luxury Budget task.
“Bigg Boss ka ghar bana jungle aur ghar bane jungli” – tonight’s episode opened with a voice over that tells us what is in store. Get ready for a storm that will also claim Hiten Tejwani, who has so far remained silent and calm on the show. Life in a jungle is all about the survival of the fittest and today’s task is one of the toughest yet. The lawn area is converted into an artificial jungle and a massive cave has been built around the entrance of the main house. This jungle will be a place of refuge for the contestants, where they will see the dark side of each other.
Earlier, before the new day began, the contestants were spooked out when they saw Mehjabi staring at them as if she was possessed by a ghost. Akash went up to her and asked, “Mehjabi aunty aap theek ho na?”. Only after some reassurance from her, all contestants went back to sleep. Next morning, contestants wake up to the song 'Aaja Gufaon Mein Aa'. Akash and Arshi asked Mehjabi what the heck was up with her last night. Mehjabi tells them that this happens to her sometimes. They discuss the possibility of what might have happened to her.
Hina has a friendly chat with Dhinchak Pooja and asked her if she was the only child. Pooja says ‘yes’. The cringe-pop singer further revealed that her parents were not happy with her participating in the show as they are a conservative Jain family, and Hina tells her that her parents, too, were not in favour of it. Further, when other contestants asked her if she knew the number of fans she had, Pooja candidly responded that it was not possible since there were quite a few negative comments as well. Hina feels that Pooja is a smart girl as she knows the reality.
For the new task, the garden area has been converted in a makeshift jungle. The contestants are divided into a team of two. Red team has Sapna, Hiten, Benafsha, Dhinchak Pooja, Shilpa, Hina, Mehjabi and Sabyasachi. Blue team has Bandgi, Arshi, Akash, Puneesh, Jyoti, Vikas. They must live in the ‘jungle’ without any amenities or luxuries of the Bigg Boss house. Both team will send one nominee inside a cave and whoever has the maximum teammates outside by the end of the task, wins. Luv is the sanchalak (moderator) of the task with the power of favouring his preferred team. The task does not end here. Contestants will do their best to irk the other person forcing the member of the opposite team to give up.
Akash throws water on Blue team’s stuff and ruins it. Luv is being a polite coordinator of the task asks contestants to not throw water on mics and to not touch each other. During an argument, Akash tells Hina, “Itne bade bade logo ke sath kaam kia hai tabhi hi TV pe atki hai!”. Hina continues to have a hard time performing this task with Akash, Puneesh and Bandagi lashing out at her. Bandagi and Hina gets into an argument where Bandgi calls her out for hurting her. Hina says, “Ye celebrity banne aayi hai” to Bandagi. The tiff between Akash and Hina gets more intense, with Hina calling him a ‘flop star’ during the task. The cave opens for the first time, which is basically the entrance to the main house, but noone enters it and continues the task. Akash conspires with Red team and fails miserably.
From throwing dirty water and cow dung to hurling harsh words at each other, they will come up with innovative ideas to harass the members of the opposite team today. Blue team smears mud on Shilpa as the night began to cast over the house. Shilpa throws a bucket on Arshi after she simply touches her. Jyoti is super pissed at the task. Vikas is unnaturally silent.
The task begins to get violent with contestants throwing muddy water on each other. Luv gets an order from Bigg Boss that he can remove any contestant from the task for breaking rules. Hiten loses his cool and tells Akash to remove his mic and then play. Contestants are unable to hold their laughter as it is for the first time that they have seen Hiten angry and challenge a housemate.
Mehjabi is lured to enter the cave by putting gifts from family there, as bait. After a lot of contemplation, Mehjabi refuses the gifts and continues the task. Blue team tries to brainwash Pooja and tells her that her team made fun of her on the first day. Pooja says she does not care about that. Akash further tells Pooja to turn her rapper attitude on and enter the cave. Pooja tells him that he, too, is a rapper so he also should enter the cave. Vikas says, “I am a man!”
