After a moderate first week, Bigg Boss 9 had its first elimination yesterday. The nominated pairs were Roopal Tyagi-Digangana Suryavanshi , Yuvika Choudhary-Vikas Bhalla Rimi Sen-Suyyash Rai and Ankit Gera-Arvind Vegda. The episode started on a happy note with Sonam Kapoor and Salman Khan promoting their upcoming film Prem Ratan Dhan Payo.
There were some new elements in this year’s elimination episode; a panel of a journalist and a guest actor interacted with the housemates. Senior journalist Akash Soni and actor Ayushman Khurranna were the panelist of the day. They asked several questions to the contestants. Keith, Mandana, Rochelle, Rimi, Aman, Kishwer and Suyyash proved to be the most popular members as most of the questions were directed to them.
By the end of the show, TV actor Ankit Gera was evicted, which left everyone in shock. Ex-lover Roopal Tyagi broke down when Ankit’s name was announced. Ankit exited the house to enter a press conference. Ankit said that he was happy that whatever little time he spent in the BB house was enough for him to show his real self. He was happy with the Janta’s decision.
