Bigg Boss 11, Episode 35, 5 November 2017: Dhinchak Pooja eliminated from house
Salman Khan began the latest episode of Bigg Boss 11 by saying that the fifth week was very exciting and further announced the nominations. He said that Benafsha was eliminated, but she refused to believe him this time. In fact, no one in the house believed him, and Benfsha asked Salman again if she was safe, and he smiled at her. Akash tried to sneak in to the living room, but Salman caught him. He mocked Akash for doing this and told him that with hundreds of cameras in the house, sneaking in doesn’t work. He then announced that Hina, Hiten and Shilpa were safe from eliminations this week. The other nominated contestants were Sabyasachi, Sapna, Dhinchak Pooja, Bandgi, Benafsha and Priyank.
Salman then announced the waxing task, which had to be performed in pairs. Every time a girl said ‘no’ in response to a question asked to her, the guy paired with her would have to get waxed. Akash and Bandgi were the first pair, and every time Bandgi said ‘no’, his chest was waxed and he screamed in pain. Salman prompted Bandgi to say ‘no’ so that Akash would be waxed, and he laughed at Akash’s reaction, and later he asked Akash to rub ice on the area. The contestants were distracted after Jallaad laughed for the first time on the show.
Sapna and Puneesh were the next pair. Sapna put forth a condition that she would pull off the waxing strip if Salman wanted her to say ‘no’ for all questions. Puneesh ran away, but Salman forced him to come back and finish the task. Puneesh couldn’t bear the pain and was almost on the verge of crying. Vikas cribbed about getting waxed, but Hina pulled him and forced him to sit on the chair to get his leg waxed. However, Vikas was the only male contestant who didn’t complain about the pain and performed the task sportingly.
Salman scared Bandgi by suddenly announcing that her boyfriend was here to talk to her. She heaved a sigh of relief when Salman said he was joking. Salman then said that Bandgi and Sapna are safe from evictions this week. He then showed all the contestants how dirty the house was. Hina first blamed Arshi for being unhygienic, and Arshi responded by saying that she was not the only one to be blamed, and there was a heated argument between the two. Salman gave them a earful about cleanliness. Most contestants voted for Arshi and Vikas as the most unhygienic and dirty. Arshi maked fun of Hina’s asthma and Salman shut her up; Hina started crying because of this comment and said that Arshi had no class.
Hina and Shilpa had a fight about dirty laundry. Everybody formed groups and started bickering. Hina, Priyank and Benafsha gossiped about Arshi while eating. They also gossiped about Puneesh and Bandgi’s equation and how they are trying to survive in the house. Later on, Salman came back and announced that Akash and Priyank will have to fight it out at the Sultani Akhadaa. Akash and Priyank talked about how entertaining they are, and after Priyank won all the rounds effortlessly, Salman announced that he is safe this week.
Salman then introduced three panelists — Karanvir Bohra, Tanisha Mukerji and Shweta Singh to talk about the contestants. Salman mocked Karanvir about his hairstyle, which he called a cross between Shah Rukh Khan and Arshi Khan. Tanisha expressed how disappointed she was with contestants this season, as she feels that the relationships changed every day, unlike the relationships during the season when she was a contestant. Karanvir and Tanisha talked about the Vikas-Shilpa controversy; she said Vikas is doing everything just for the footage, while Karanvir took Vikas’ side. Salman then announced a task where contestants had to confess their deep, dark secrets, and the best one would be awarded immunity from the next nomination.
Puneesh said that a friend had sent him Bandgi’s picture a few days before the show, and that he had he saved the picture even though he didn’t know who she was, and finally they met in the Bigg Boss 11 house. Hiten confessed to coming home drunk while Hina revealed that she ran away from home when she was a little girl. Arshi confessed that the whole controversy about her being pregnant with Shahid Afridi’s child was a joke. Shilpa said that she still feels guilty about never telling her father that she did not graduate. Dhinchak Pooja’s confession was the cutest thus far. She says that she is so popular with the boys that she hardly leaves the house, and because of this, she has been single for the longest time. Benafsha confessed to fighting anxiety and broke down. Sapna said that she wanted to study but that she never told her mother this because her parents couldn’t afford it at the time and she didn’t want to see them upset. Vikas said that his father left his family and that he never stopped him from leaving for his mother’s sake. Sabyasachi confessed that he considered undergoing a sex change operation once.
Karanvir voted for Sabyasachi, while the other two vote for Shilpa, which made her safe from evictions next week. Salman then announced that Dhinchak Pooja has been evicted from the house. Shilpa told Arshi about how innocent and nice Pooja really is. The housemates sing ‘Selfie Maine Le Li‘ for Pooja before letting her go.
