Twists
  • As soon as Akanksha and Palak entered the house, they were nominated for eviction. A few hours later, Bigg Boss announced that the audience had to vote for one of them. Fortunately for Akanksha, she received the majority of the votes and was able to stay in the house. However, Palak still had a chance to stay by collecting 30,000 BB Currency from the other housemates. She managed to do so and earned a spot in the house.
  • On Day 3, Bigg Boss instructed all the housemates to contribute their BB Currency to a chest called 'Tijori'. This currency would be used collectively by everyone in the house. The total amount collected was 3,19,000 BB Currency.
Captaincy Task On Day 4 in the Bigg Boss house, the two content creators, Cyrus and Abhishek, were given a task by Bigg Boss to select one housemate each as a contender for captaincy. Cyrus opted for Falaq, while Abhishek chose Akanksha. Both pairs were tasked with creating an entertaining 'video' in the Activity Area, behind their prop TV and Phone screen frames. The audience would then vote to decide which content was more entertaining, and the winners would receive a reward of 2 kg of any personal ration item. Additionally, the winning creator would also secure captaincy for their partner. After the audience voted, it was Cyrus-Falaq who emerged victorious. As a result, Cyrus chose to take 2 kg of mutton.

Falaq, as the captain, was immune from nominations, but Akanksha opted not to nominate anyone to increase her chances of getting out of jail. However, she remained vulnerable to being nominated by others.

Tasks Toy Factory

The garden area was transformed into a Toy Factory for the 'Team v/s Team Week.' Each team had to create sock puppets using the available thread and needle at their workstations. During each round, the first siren sound indicated that wool, buttons, and socks were about to be sent into the house through a ramp, and puppet creation had to be paused.

When the second siren sound played, only two members from each team were allowed to take as many supplies as needed. Once the supplies were taken, puppet creation could resume. Only the chosen team members could work behind the workstation to create puppets, while the rest had to wait.

Pooja and Aaliya were assigned as quality-assurance managers for the opposing teams. Once one side created 10 puppets, the quality-assurance manager of the opposite team had to either 'Reject' or 'Approve' the puppets, providing a reason for any rejections. The approved and rejected puppets of each team were placed into separate boxes labelled 'Approved' and 'Rejected.'

At the end of the task, the team with the most approved sock puppets would win the challenge and receive Premium Ration and the privilege of not having to do any household duties for the week. Conversely, the losing team would receive a basic ration and be responsible for performing the household duties for the week.

Winner - Team B (Aaliya, Abhishek, Akanksha, Jad and Jiya)
Failed - Team A (Avinash, Bebika, Cyrus, Falaq, Manisha and Pooja)
Dare Task

As the final challenge of the 'Team versus Team Week,' this task will determine the ultimate winner. There will be two rounds, each lasting an hour.

In the first round, Team A can dare or challenge Team B to complete a task or challenge of their choosing. The nature of the dare will be entirely up to Team A. However, Team B will have the freedom to decide whether they want to accept and complete the task or not.

In the second round, roles will swap, and Team B will have the chance to dare or challenge Team A with a task of their choosing. Once again, it will be Team A's choice whether to accept or decline the challenge.

After the task, viewers will vote to determine which team performed better in completing their respective challenges. The winning team, based on viewer votes, will be granted the privilege of selecting a member from their team to become the next House Captain.

Winner - Team B (Abhishek, Akanksha, Jad, Jiya and Manisha)
Failed - Team A (Avinash, Bebika, Cyrus, Falaq and Pooja)

Captaincy Task Satta Badal - Fall of Captaincy

In the garden area, there was a buzzer enclosed by a red square. All the housemates had to wait outside the red border until the siren was played. The first person to press the buzzer after the siren would get the chance to eliminate one housemate from the captaincy race. To do this, they had to walk up the Red Carpet, climb the stairs, and throw the chosen housemate's picture into the pool.

The housemate whose photo remained hanging at the end would become the captain and could save themselves or another housemate from nominations. They had the option to replace the saved housemate with a safe one. The winner of the task would take all the picture magnets of the housemates and a red tick from Abhishek's profile and put them on their profile.

Satta Badal - Torture Task

In the garden area, a throne was set up for Jiya, the Captain of the house on Bigg Boss. The other housemates had to distract her and try to get her off the throne without physically violating her. The task would start when the first siren was played and would last for about 3 hours. Jiya could return to her seat when the second siren was played.

The housemate who successfully managed to get Jiya off the throne during the task would become the next Captain of the house. If Jiya managed to stay on the throne until the second siren, she would keep her position as the Captain of the House.

Winner - Jiya Shankar
Failed - Rest of the Housemates
House Captain Abhishek Malhan
Jiya Shankar
Tasks Buzzer of Complaints

In the living area, Bigg Boss placed a buzzer for the housemates to press when the first siren sounded. The first person to press the buzzer would get a chance to present their complaint about Jiya's Captaincy. Both the complainant and Jiya would select a Jury to hear the case.

When the next siren sounded, the complainant's explanation would come to an end, and the Jury would deliberate to determine whether Jiya was guilty of the complaints or not. Based on the arguments presented during the task, the Jury would be responsible for making the final decision regarding Jiya's Captaincy.

The challenge tested the housemates' ability to resist any interaction or acknowledgement of the guest. The goal was to maintain composure and focus on ignoring the guest.

Elvish has completed his BB Verse punishment and is now in charge of directing the other house residents. In the garden, there is a designated throne for Elvish where he will oversee three rounds of tasks. When the trumpet sounds, all housemates must gather around the throne. Elvish will then point out any mistakes made by the residents in their household duties. When the whistle sounds, the housemates must march around the garden area twice while chanting "Captain Elvish ki Jai Ho" (meaning "Long Live Captain Elvish").

When the buzzer sounds, the housemates must line up in the garden area, and Elvish will choose one housemate. This chosen housemate must sit on the "Video of Shame" chair and praise Elvish while saying negative things about themselves. This video will then be uploaded to social media.

The upcoming captain for next week will be determined through a task. There are five candidates for the captaincy, namely Avinash, Bebika, Falaq, Jad, and Pooja. They need to mold their 'BB' signs using clay in the garden area. The first siren sound signals the start of each round, and candidates can only begin shaping their signs then. The second siren sound signals the end of the round.

The supervisor, Abhishek, will evaluate each sign and declare the winner for that round based on the best-shaped sign. The winner of each round will remove the image of the candidate they want to eliminate from the race to become the captain from the board placed in the garden area. The task will continue in the next round.

The candidate whose image remains until the final round will become the captain for the next week. The other housemates, including Abhishek, can help shape the candidate they support but cannot defend their signs from others' interference.

Nominations Nominations Ka Jaadui Jungle

The activity area turned into a magical Jaadui Jungle, complete with a massive tree loaded with red apples. Pooja was chosen as the jungle’s guard. Whenever Bigg Boss called a housemate's name, they had to head to the tree. Pooja was there to dish out a minimum of one and a maximum of three apples. Each apple indicated how many fellow housemates that person could nominate for eviction. Dangling amid the apples was a single green one. Pooja could use this special green apple to rescue a housemate from the threat of nominations. Pooja chose Abhishek and saved him from nominations.

Since Pooja was the captain, she couldn't be nominated for eviction.

Each round starts when the first buzzer is played. In the first round, Team A attempts to entertain the audience. When the second buzzer sounds, it's Team B's turn to engage the audience. Similarly, when the third buzzer is played, it's Team C's opportunity to captivate the audience.

Following the performances of each team, the audience votes for their favorite. The team that accumulates the highest number of votes wins the privilege to participate in the final "Ticket to Finale" Task.

Winner (Viral Videos Task) - Team C (Elvish, Bebika and Jiya)
Failed (Viral Videos Task) - Team A & B (Aashika, Abhishek, Avinash, Jad, Manisha and Pooja)
Since Team C won the previous task, only Elvish, Bebika, and Jiya can participate as candidates for the Ticket To Finale in this task. The winner of this task not only wins the Ticket to Finale but also becomes the Captain of the house.

In the garden area, there are three toy shops, one for each of the candidates. Bebika, Elvish and Jiya were the shopkeepers. When the horn sounds, it indicates that the BB Warehouse is restocked with toys, and the shopkeepers can go and collect their toys for their shops. The rest of the housemates have bags full of pearls used as currency to buy these toys from the toy shops. The price of the toys is entirely up to the shopkeeper and the housemate’s negotiation skills. The shopkeeper must always place the pearls they earn, in a steel container, present at their shop.

When the sound of kids laughing is played, the housemates can buy toys in return for pearls from their chosen shops. When the sound of a shuttle going down is played, the housemates can steal toys and pearls from any shop, and the shopkeeper has to step out of the shop. This continues until the next kids laughing sound is played.

Ration Task

In this task, Pooja auditions the housemates. Each time the chime sound is played, Bigg Boss announces the role Pooja has to cast for. Pooja's office setup opens up in the activity area. She announces the names of the housemates who could fit into that role and invites them for auditions. Bigg Boss calls in a housemate to Pooja's office one by one for the audition. After each audition, Pooja announces which housemate she believes fits the role. She then places that housemate's photo next to their designated role on the board in her office.

Pooja's casting process is observed and judged by the audience. At the end of the task, the audience votes to decide whether they agree with Pooja's casting choices or not. If the audience agrees, the housemates receive premium ration. If not, they receive basic ration.

The audience disagrees with Pooja's casting decisions; as a result, the housemates receive basic ration.

The remaining housemates had the responsibility of collecting the fruits and deciding whether to place them in Pooja or Abhishek's basket. This choice was entirely up to them.

Only Pooja and Abhishek were authorized to remove fruits from each other's baskets, and they had the responsibility of guarding their baskets. The objective of this task was to collect as many fruits as possible and secure them in their respective baskets.

At the end of the task, the housemate with the highest number of fruits in their basket would be declared the final Captain of the house and the first finalist of the season.

After the roles are decided, Abhishek places the names of the housemates next to their assigned jobs on a board in the garden area. Then, the guests, who are the family members, enter the house.
