The countdown has begun, the clock has started ticking again and the tables have changed again for better or for worse. As time passes by tension and anxiety is building up among the inmates of Big Boss' house. With Amit's eviction last weekend, five are left behind in the house (Ravi, Rahul, Rakhi and Carol) along with Kashmira who is supposedly a guest who has entered the show, but never seems so or for the matter never behaves like one.
As the d-day is approaching nearby the pressure is more than what the inmates can handle. Much to the relief of the housemates, Big Boss made a surprise announcement that the celebrities will no longer have to undergo the ordeal of nominating one another. This brought forth a wave of happiness and ringing laughter, as they hugged one another to express their feelings.
Big boss had much in store for them to keep them preoccupied throughout the day. They were given a single small suitcase in which all of them had to keep whatever they needed for five days, while the rest of the things were to be handed over to Big Boss in five different suitcases. They had a tough time squeezing in every possible thing they needed. Rahul was sported stuffing in his t-shirt, which he wears always on Fridays, the elimination day. Rakhi and Carol were confused as to what ought to be packed and what to be left behind. Though they did manage to finish their task within the stipulated time, Carol who had gone later to pack her nightwear was asked by Big Boss to take it back.
In a pretty jovial mood Big Boss was sported handing them one task after the other. They were asked to sleep only for 2 hours, so desperately tried to do that. They were all very happy as no nominations had to be done but that there would be a surprise eviction on Wednesday was something that they were not aware of.
The girls still had much to bitch about. Rakhi and Kashmira were spotted talking of why they are hated the most. The obvious conclusion - they are too frank therefore no one likes them. Rakhi carefully avoided talking much about Ravi and Carol though Kashmira did pass a few wily comments.
In spite of the few number of members at the house the internal politics is blatantly evident. Though on the surface the atmosphere seems calm and serene, much is brewing beneath. With their days at the house being numbered it is time that they realize the value of true companionship and emotional as well as moral support for one another.
