Nominations, served with a twist

Shilpa (above) – who had won a task during the Weekend Ka Vaar episode -- is declared safe by Bigg Boss in the nomination process.

Captain Puneesh gets a special power and is asked to nominate seven housemates for this week’s eviction.

He nominates everyone he does not like – Hiten Tejwani, Priyank, Sabyasachi Satpathy, Benafsha, Mehjabi Siddiqi, Luv Tyagi and Sapna Choudhary.

Hina escapes the nomination due to a pact with Puneesh last week, when she had agreed to be nominated instead of him.

The rest of the house had to nominate two people each from those listed by Puneesh. And here’s how that went:

Hiten: 1 nomination – Sapna.

Priyank: 5 nominations -- Shilpa, Sabyasachi, Mehjabi, Akash and Arshi.

Sabyasachi: 5 nominations -- Vikas, Shilpa, Priyank, Hiten and Benafsha.

Benafsha: 5 nominations -- Bandgi, Luv, Mehjabi, Akash and Arshi.

Mehjabi: 4 nominations -- Priyank, Hiten, Benafsha and Hina.

Luv: 2 nominations – Vikas and Sapna.

Sapna: 4 nominations -- Bandgi, Sabyasachi, Luv and Hina.

As a result of these nominations, Priyank, Sabyasachi, Benafsha, Mehjabi and Sapna are in the danger zone this week.

Advantage, Shilpa

Shilpa gets one more advantage from Bigg Boss after winning the Weekend Ka Vaar task.

She gets to watch the recordings of what the housemates told Bigg Boss in the confession room during the nomination process.

My take

Priyank had no reason to instigate Arshi and start the fight, which everyone else joined in to gain footage.

Puneesh used his power well to nominate his enemies in the Bigg Boss house.

With everyone getting annoyed in today’s episode, the ground has been set for a hugely acrimonious week ahead.
