After five years, 'MTV Roadies 8 - Shortcut to hell' saw a girl as the winner of the reality show. Parul Shahi won 'MTV Roadies' in 2005 and now it is Aanchal Khurana who stands out as the winner, 2011. The finale saw three Roadies' contestants - Mohit, Suchit and Anchal, fighting it out for the winner's crown.
Suchit, who won the viewer's choice 'Roadies' winner on 'MTV Roadies' official Facebook page, failed to make it to the final two contenders. This however disappointed a lot of Roadies' fans. Though Suchit lost the battle, as a symbol of appreciation and honour, he was given a Karizma ZMR by the team of 'Roadies 8'. Thereafter, the final fight show between Aanchal and Mohit began. Both of them were put down on the mercy of the votes by ex-Roadies and the contestants from previous seasons of the reality. Aanchal emerged as a winner with a maximum vote of nine. The voters reasoned that they voted for Aanchal as they wanted a girl to win 'Roadies 8'.
Aanchal Khurana, who entered 'Roadies 8' as a simple girl and a huge determination of proving his family the equal strength of girls to fight it out against boys, was voted out with Renee on the show. Later she returned back to the show as a wild card entrant. She fought her way through the episodes by performing tasks, and surviving vote-outs. Anchal, as the winner of the show, got Rs.4, 00,000 collected by the contestants on the show and a Hero Honda Karizma ZMR bike.
MTV Roadies, a youth based reality show, started in 2003.
