The first weekend episode of Bigg Boss 2 Telugu started off with host Nani thanking audience for accepting the all new Bigg Boss house, contestants and him as the host. He tells audiences what happened on Friday in the Bigg Boss house and we saw how Tejaswi justifies the decision of giving captaincy to Samrat over Banu, who technically performed better. She puts forth her point to fellow contestant Nutan. We also had Samrat discussing his decisions with Tanish, which reflects his inability to make decisions as a captain on his own.

We also saw Kaushal discussing how he either wants himself, Sanjana Deepthi or Shyamala to be among the finalists. Nani then welcomed the contestants on board for the weekend show - the beginning of the first elimination. The nominated contestants are Sanjana, Kaushal, Deepthi Sunaina, Nuthan Naidu, Ganesh and Kireeti.

Nani spoke with Sanjana in the house about the week that has passed. She was jailed on day 1 and then went on to have arguments with Tejaswi. Nani addressed the misunderstanding and Sanjana explained that Tejaswi and she are too much alike to get along and both of them have ego. To this, Tejaswi defended herself and explained that she doesn’t like how Sanjana treats any given situation. Nani then tells Sanjana that audiences don’t think that the two of them are similar, and neither does he agree with her opinion about being on the same level as Tejaswi when it comes to winning.

Nani also addressed the youngest contestant on the show - 20-year-old Deepthi Sunaina who is an online sensation. He congratulated her on having a great first week and also called out cyber bullying. The actor asked, “She is a 20-year-old who has worked hard to earn her place in this house and among people today. What have you done except for the negativity that you spread?”

“Jokes, memes and trolls are fine when they are in the vein of humour. Not otherwise,” he stressed.

Nani also spoke about the famed kiss that social activist Babu Gogineni planted on rapper Roll Rida. The episode took a hilarious twist as Babu confessed that he never thought that he would be kissing a rapper, especially on national television. Nani also mentioned that Roll Rida is the most entertaining contestant in the house, who needs to pitch in a bit more when it comes to work.

He then spoke to Bhanu who was technically the best performer at the captaincy task and yet was not given the captaincy because of contestants who decided to give the captaincy to Samrat even before the task took place. Nani appreciated her for the effort that put in.

He finally spoke to the first captain of the Bigg Boss Telugu season 2 house, Samrat. Nani asked Samrat what he thought about contestants decision and asked if he was ready for the post, to which Samrat responded in the positive. It was then that Nani called out Samrat for being a weak leader who has an assistant to consult with about every single decision he takes, which has audience doubting his abilities.

The elimination episode set to air on Sunday, June 17 will see one of the nominated contestants leave the Bigg Boss show. Nani has already announced that Deepthi Sunaina has been protected because of the huge fan following that she has garnered with her performance on the show. Kaushal is also protected from the elimination round, leaving the rest of the nominees worried about the future in the house.
