Bigg Boss 10, Episode 73, 28 December 2016: Manveer and Rohan compete for captaincy

The ongoing ‘Toofan’ task for luxury budget and captaincy has been testing the contestants’ patience and if that wasn’t enough, the task continues for the second day. Besides anxiety and stress, Om Swami has become the other major reason for their difficulty in performing the task. Even before the contestants rise and shine, early bird Om starts the day by having a unique conversation with Bigg Boss through the camera. He says that all the nine contestants have gone against him. After misleading the contestants for two days, he finally admits that he wants to become the captain and requests Bigg Boss to directly declare him as the new captain of the house.

Welcoming the second day of the 'Toofan' task, the contestants wake up to the song ‘Mast baharon ka main aashiq’. Soon after, another 'storm' strikes the house and the contestants rush inside the ‘igloo’. The last one to enter is Bani and she gets disqualified from the task. Later, Om once again parks himself at the entrance of the ‘igloo’ and attempts to mislead everyone.

After being disqualified from the task, Bani tells Manveer that she wants him to become the captain and jokes with him that she would nominate him if he fails to win. On the other hand, Manveer feels that Manu is losing interest in the task and confronts him about it. Manveer tells him that he wants him to get a grip on the game and show some fighting spirit but Manu is not interested. Rohan once again gets into an argument with Om. He sits very close to Om near the ‘igloo’ and refuses to budge or tolerate Om’s  cheating tactics. Both fight for the best spot near the ‘igloo’. Gaurav also interferes and asks Om to stop playing dirty games. And suddenly Om does the unthinkable, he removes his pants on the pretext of feeling hot, and everybody is outraged at his behaviour. At the same time, Bani and Gaurav also have a silly argument over food that how Gaurav turned up late to cook and eat with her, after which Bani refuses to eat along with Gaurav. He tries to give an explanation but Bani walks off.

 Bigg Boss 10, Episode 73, 28 December 2016: Manveer and Rohan compete for captaincy

Rohan and Swami Om discuss something serious.

After being patient for a while, Bigg Boss asks Lopa to once again draw a border around the igloo’s entrance and asks the contestants to stand beyond it. As the day progresses, the fifth storm strikes and a conflict arises as to who amongst Lopa and Om entered the 'igloo' last. While Lopa claims that she entered before everyone and reached the ‘igloo’ first, Om dismisses her claims and says that he entered first.

Finally, Bigg Boss steps in to clear the air and disqualifies Om from the task while Lopa and Rohan rejoice and call him liar. Om again takes a U turn and tells them that eventually Manu or Manveer will become the captain whereas Lopa says it was about the spirit of the task and nothing else. Blaming Bigg Boss for taking an ‘unfair’ decision, Om goes on a rant and demands justice. He threatens to leave the house this weekend and fight for justice from outside. He further looks into the camera and says that Manu, Manveer, Lopa and Rohan were out to kill him and he will drag them to court once he is out of the house. Looks like he has completely lost it!

The sixth storm drives Lopa out of the game, making Manveer, Manu and Rohan the top three contenders for captaincy. In order to give Manu a birthday gift, Manveer tells him that he is planning to back out from the task so that he can take a spot alongside Rohan in the captaincy task but Manu doesn't agree. Just when the last storm is about to hit, Om decides to sit near the entrance of the ‘igloo’ to watch the final run. And to everyone’s surprise, Om plays a dirty game and chases Rohan when he's rushing inside the 'igloo' during the final storm and in the process ends up strangling him (Rohan). However, Rohan manages to get in along with Manveer.  Onlookers Lopa and Gaurav are shocked to see this and lash out at Om for hurting Rohan.  Every contestant in the house yell at Om, who goes to the bedroom and hides inside the blanket.

Lopa, Bani, Manveer and Gaurav confront him and make him realize that he has committed a huge mistake and that his actions could have turned fatal. Before the light goes off, the housemates celebrate Manu’s birthday by cutting a cake sent by his girlfriend Priya Saini.  Om doesn't join them and Mona takes a piece of cake for him on his bed. Gaurav and Bani once again have some silly argument and the rest of the contestants, who are having their dinner, wonder when will their problem ever end. This seemed to be a nasty one and as usual Bani walks off muttering that why do people fight with her in the night as it disturbs her sleep.

Tomorrow we will see the final leg of the competition for captaincy between Manveer and Rohan wherein both will be competing for a task that requires them to put flowers on a flower bed. Before the task begins, Bani warns Om to not to go near the flower bed but he refuses to listen. And while both the contenders are busy performing the task, Om gets midway probably trying to help out Manveer and also gets physical with Rohan.

First, Gaurav and Om have an ugly fight where Gaurav almost hits Om, and further, Rohan physically attacks Om which goes against him. As a  result, Bigg Boss announces that Rohan needs to be punished. Rohan loses his cool and after an emotional outburst, locks himself in the bathroom. Lopa stands outside crying. Rohan is heard saying that he wants to go home while Lopa pacifies him saying that he’s not going anywhere.
