Secret Society (SS) of Bigg Boss 8 would five the contestants their first task. Sacrifice of sleep. Two of the contestants need to sacrifice their sleep for the others to get their sleep. Though Upen Patel and Praneet Bhatt volunteer, the SS would make the last minute change and ask Gautam Gulati to joining Upen at staying awake.
Thus started the young guys' challenge of staying awake throughout the night. Upen seemed a lot more comfortable at keeping himself awake but the same can't be said about Gautam. Gautam had a tough time keeping his eyes open. So much so that Upen had to motivate him to keep his eyes open.
When his motivations failed, Upen had to sprinkle water on Gautam to keep him awake. There were many moment that Gautam dozed off sitting up and Upen had to keep him awake. Desperate times call for desperate measures.
After all the trouble these duo went through to stay awake, they came out of the airplane to find that they had no water supply. The SS had already started their next task of working to earn their water. Two of their co-contestants, Sukirti Kandpal and Minissha Lamba, had to cycle so the other got some water for drinking and other utilities.
