Palak is out. Am I sad to see her go? Well, she was a colourful character — one never knew when she would fly off the handle. But now at least things won’t be so likely to degenerate into violence. And, hopefully, the other roadies will get the message that such behaviour will give others a solid reason to vote you out.

Palak’s exit was acrimonious, as expected. But surprisingly, some roadies broke down and sobbed! The twists didn’t stop there! Because there were seven roadies in the brats gang and only five in om blues, one roadie, Kiri, was sent from the brats to the om blues gang. It will be interesting to see how he tries to fit in with his ‘opponents’.

The reason we do gang transfers is to reinforce the feeling that, though you have the ‘support’ of a gang, each roadie is alone.

In today’s episode, the roadies again isolate one from each gang, who then fight for survival. The results lead to further twists.

I’m really looking forward to the money task. The roadies, after a big meal, are given laxatives, and they make money for each hour they can hold their bowels! At regular intervals, Rannvijay keeps upping the stakes till it becomes unbearable for the roadies!

If you like watching people squirm, you’ll love this episode!
