During the show, Erica took part in a task, during which, she performed a stunt with Mohit Malik and Tushar Kalia. However, she ended up in the elimination round. Her last stunt required the bottom three contestants – Erika, Aneri Vajani and Jannat Zubair to unchain themselves from a glass box containing reptiles such as snakes and crocodiles. She struggled to set herself free and was evicted.
Talking about her participation on the show, Erica said in a statement, “It makes me very sad to get evicted and end this incredible adventure so soon. I had a great experience doing the show. It was my first time in the world of television, it was my first time doing everything, including doing stunts and travelling with such a big crew and competing with my fellow contestants. I thought it would be a bit difficult considering I am not from the industry but surprisingly we got along from the first day. Everyone was polite, nice and encouraging as they knew am new. I am going to stay in touch with all my friends, especially my girlfriends I made on the show.”
Talking about her experience, she added, “Being on a reality show like this was itself a fear for me which I am happy I have overcome. Talking about the stunts I would say I gave my best; I panicked a bit during the elimination stunt and hence couldn’t place the keys. It was just about who did a better job during the stunt. It has been a great learning for me, and I will always cherish the memories I have created here and treasure the lessons I've learnt for the rest of my life.”
Khatron Ke Khiladi airs every Saturday and Sunday at 9 pm on Colors. Among the other contestants participating on the show are Rubina Dilaik, Pratik Sehajpal, Sriti Jha, Nishant Bhat, Rajiv Adatia and others.
