Bigg Boss 11, Episode 19, 20 October 2017: Hina Khan is the new captain of the house
On Day 19 in Bigg Boss 11, Hina and Sapna are elected as the top two contenders for the captaincy task.
The contestants wake up to the foot-tapping song, Tatad Tatad, from Ram Leela,and they wish each other Happy Diwali. Hina and Sabyasachi are taking a walk in the lawn area of the house wherein Hina tells him that Arshi was the most unhygienic person in the house followed by Benafsha. To this Sabyasachi adds that Arshi was the most lazy of all. On the other side, Arshi, Benafsha and Bandagi are bitching about Hina as she is meditating in the garden. Arshi is seen making fun of Hina for the poses she's using for yoga.
Soon after, Sapna is called inside the confession room wherein she is informed that the housemates have to select two contestants from the winning team of the luxury budget task and these two people will compete to be the next captain. Vikas, who was stripped off his captaincy for attacking Puneesh cannot be the captain till he’s inside the house, hence he will stay away from the competition.Team Vikas had done an exceptional job winning the Luxury Budget task.
After a lot of deliberation and drama, the ‘gharwale’ come to a decision that Hina, Sapna and Benafsha are the three contestants who deserve to be nominated for captaincy on the basis of their performance in the Luxury Budget Task. But the main problem here is that only two contestants can be nominated. Benafsha does not want Hina to be the captain as she hates her over confidence and wants to give her some strong competition.
Finally, with every contestant’s consent, Hina and Sapna are elected as the top two contenders for the captaincy task. Benafsha looks unhappy with this decision. She is also seen being upset with Sapna because she always said that she did not want to stay in the house and now she is striving hard to be the next captain of the house. As the process is on, Hina, who is not too happy with Hiten’s lack of interest in captaincy, points out his wife’s message to him — ‘Don’t be a follower, be the leader’ — which was probably to justify his weakness.
The captaincy task begins later in the evening, where Hina and Sapna choose one of the contestants as their representatives, who sit inside separate glass enclosures. The other contestants choose sides, and keep putting sand into the glass container belonging to the other nominee.
The representative keeps throwing the sand out of the container. Hina and Sapna try to convince the other ‘gharwale’ to throw sand in the opposite contenders’ glass container. Hina selects Hiten and Sapna selects Puneesh. Hiten wins the task and hence Hina becomes the captain. Obviously Arshi is unhappy with this. After the captaincy task comes to an end, Sapna lashes out at Vikas as she is not happy with his involvement in the task. Sapna feels Vikas was dishonest and he was only depending upon strategies.
Bigg Boss then announces a talk show inside the house which will be hosted by Vikas. The five nominated contestants – Akash, Hina, Luv, Sapna and Mehjabi will take part in this show so that they can convince the viewers for the last time to save them. One by one they keep their points in front of everyone, which starts a debate and heated arguments.
Hina lashes out at Benafsha for supporting Arshi even if she spat on Hina. Benafsha accuses Hina of forcing her views on others. Hina also decides to keep one arm distance from Arshi, who feels happy hearing this. Puneesh and Luv also get into a tiff where the former says that he wanted to create a love triangle between Bandagi and both of them, but Puneesh didn’t let that happen. Luv accuses Akash, Bandagi and Puneesh for forming groupism in the house, and strangely enough, Arshi feels Hina should be evicted from the house as she was responsible for her getting abusive.
