The October 6 episode of Bigg Boss 16 commenced with the housemates discussing Abdu Rozik shoes which were priced at 5,000 dollars. They wanted to steal it but Abdu hides them and heads to the pool. Shalin and Gautam were seen flirting with Soundarya by complimenting her about her cooking. Bigg Boss then informed Nimrit that she was being fired from her captaincy. He also informed that she was complacent during her tenure as people have been flouting the rules of the house. As a result, she was fired by Bigg Boss.
In the meantime, it must be noted that the rest of the contestants were provided with access to Nimrit’s conversation in the confession room. However, Bigg Boss granted Nimrit a chance to redeem herself as captain whilst announcing a challenge. He informed the other housemates that the first person to ring the gong in the garden area will qualify as a contender for captaincy.
The housemates immediately rushed outside and Shalin managed to hit the gong first. The task required both the contenders to balance the baskets on their heads while the rest of the housemates had to fill items into the basket of the contender they wish to overthrow. Eventually, Nimrit managed to win the task and renew her captaincy.
Later, Bigg Boss provided the nominated contestants namely Gori, MC Stan, Sajid, Shiv, Gautam, and Archana a chance to rescue themselves from this week’s eviction. He provided Gori with the task to enthral housemates and the audience with her dance skills. She was also supposed to convince the rest of the nominated contestants to join her.
She succeeded in the given challenge and was provided with the power to withdraw one contestant from the nominations list and save herself from getting evicted. She was also given the option to use this power for herself as well.
