Bigg Boss 10 Episode 23, 8 November 2016 written update: No more malik, sevaks; all contestants merge

After a day of full of sacrifices, Bani, Rohan, Monalisa, Nitibha and Gaurav find themselves secure from this week’s nominations but the task gets tougher on the second day leading to more difficult sacrifices to make. And, marking the dawn of a new day, the housemates wake up dancing to the tunes of the song ‘Telephone dhun mein hasne wali all prepared for the next leg of the nominations task. Om Swami is seen dancing in the secret house while matching steps with Mona Lisa in the house. Gaurav Chopra and VJ Bani seem to be bonding big time, they are spotted having a conversation about Gaurav’s marriage and how his matrimonial profile will read like. As Gaurav describes the girl of his dreams according to his mother, Bani is unable to hold on to her laughter.

As the second round of the nominations task continues, Manu picks up the phone and is commanded by Bigg Boss to convince Manveer to shave off his beard.  Quite possessive about his beard, Manveer requests Bigg Boss if he can do something else rather than shaving off the beard.  On understanding that Manveer has invested nine months in growing his beard and considers it to be a lucky charm, Manu  tells him that he is ready to get nominated if Manveer is not willing to do the task. This leaves Manveer in a confused state of mind and he decides to give it a second thought. But eventually he saves his friend from getting nominated.

Furthermore, making Manveer’s life even more difficult, Manu nominates him to sit on the throne next. In order to save himself, Manveer has to convince Rohan to dress up like a girl and stay in the garb until Bigg Boss’s further notice. Knowing the fact that Rohan will never agree to do cross dress to save Manveer, he comes up with a strategy and decides to manipulate Lopa instead. He calls Lopa and Rohan and tells them  that either Lopa  needs to destroy her makeup or Rohan  needs to dress up like a girl. Rohan tells Manveer that he would take a decision after he sees the full attire. Next in line is Karan who is asked to convince Lokesh to nominate herself and give up on the chance to get safe from nominations. Karan puts Lokesh in a fix and one thing leads to the other when Lokesh ends up taking a wrong decision due to some confusion in understanding the task.

Later in the day, Navin takes on the seat and is asked to convince Nitibha to give away her make up for the entire season.  Navin sweet talks Nitibha into sacrificing her makeup and ensures that he would get Lopa and Bani to share makeup with her.  Bani narrates the entire conversation to the celebrities. However, Lopa goes and tells Navin a completely different version and says that Bani claims that Navin would steal Lopa and Bani’s make-up for Nitibha. Navin confronts Bani and they both get into a fight and even hurl abuses at each other, all thanks to Lopa’s misunderstanding. Bani feels targeted and tries to explain her stand but fails to do so. She further lashes out at Lopa for putting her in a bad spot and they both have an argument. Subsequently, Bani and Mona have a showdown when Bani tells Mona to leave the area where she and Gaurav were chatting.

Further, Gaurav is seen advising Bani to share her problems with the fellow housemates and avoid snapping at everyone. While Bani listens to him patiently, she breaks down and tells him that this is her true side and she prefers to be left by herself to deal with her problems. With the contestants’ friendships and relationships put to test, Manveer, Rahul, Lokesh and Navin eventually get nominated for this week’s eviction.

Ending on a dramatic note, Bigg Boss announces the merger of the two teams – celebrities and commoners. Henceforth, there are no 'maliks' and 'sevaks' and a new dynamic has been set in motion. Three weeks ago, the contestants entered the Bigg Boss house in two teams,  celebrities and Indiawale (commoners). They were further divided into sevaks and maliks. The maliks had the privilege to gets all the work they wanted done through the sevaks. Bigg Boss goes on to state that 22 days later none of them are unknown and hence Bigg Boss has done away with the labels and from now on they will be regarded simply as housemates. There will be no more sevaks- maliks or celebrities-Indiawale. This merger has garnered mixed reactions from the residence and is definitely going to create tension in the Bigg Boss House. While the division existed, the sevaks were in charge of housekeeping and cooking for the housemates while the maliks rested. With no specific group responsible for the chores, it will be interesting to see who takes up the initiative to look after the house.
