The Bigg Boss housemates begin their day by getting ready to perform the second task for luxury budget. The housemates are divided into two teams - one team’s members will have to narrate a story and the other team has to figure out whether the story is true or false. The contestants in the storytelling team are called to the confession room to let Bigg Boss know if their story is true or not. The storytelling team has Balaji, Nithya, Yaashika Aanand, Mumtaz, Vaishnavi and Mahat.
Estranged couple Balaji and Nithya take this as an opportunity to tell the housemates their life story. While Nithya concentrates on how she is today a successful single mother, Balaji expresses his guilt and how he misses his father who is no more. He feels that his father could have helped him solve the problem that he finds himself in today. He does mention how his wife had helped him when he had left his family.
The housemates then disperse. The cooking team begins making the lunch, and Nithya is asked to cook a meal of her choice. Balaji notices that the quantity of carrots is less and may not be enough for the 16 of them and suggests to Mahat that they add onions. For some reason, Nithya refuses to do the same. The other housemates come forward and try to convince her that this is not a task, but a genuine concern as there might not be enough food for the house. Yet, Nithya is stubborn and won’t agree. This makes Aishwarya angry, who announces that she might not have lunch and leaves the living area.
Mumtaz then approaches Balaji to figure out what went wrong and listens to Balaji speak about Nithya. She asks him if they have got their divorce and advises Balaji to try reverse psychology on Nithya to see if she will rethink her decision.
Balaji decides to skip lunch and doesn’t eat even when Senrayan brings a plate of food. Everyone tries to interfere and convince Balaji about Nithya’s intentions. He, however, does not speak about it.
Bigg Boss then announces that the housemates get full points, as both team have acquired equal points.
Nithya calls for a house meeting to discuss the problems that she has with the cooking team. She accuses members of not dividing work equally and for not communicating with her properly. While Mumtaz, the cooking team captain, initially tries to address the issue, the argument escalates when Nithya repeatedly asks why Mumtaz does not cook in the morning. This is despite Mumtaz telling the first day that she has joint issues in the morning and faces numbness.
“Despite my condition I came out this morning and made chapatis. I even helped with making the sabji. If you have a problem because I asked you to make tea twice in a day, then what about me? I did it throughout yesterday. I will bow down and apologise if I have done something wrong. However, I will not let anyone treat me like this,” she tells the housemates.
While all of this is happening, Ponnambalam takes a power nap in the corner and Janani, who is the captain of the house notices it. She then call out to him and tries to wake him and everyone bursts out laughing.
Mumtaz later gains composure and talks to Nithya again, but things don’t work out. When Mamathi goes to Nithya and speaks about how friends are good to depend on, Nithya says she needs some alone time and the day comes to an end. Will this argument spill over the coming days?
