Day five of "Bigg Boss 9" was comparatively less dramatic than the previous day. The major highlight of the episode was the golden opportunity given to the contestants to exchange their partners.

The day started with Roopal Tyagi talking about her ex-boyfriend Ankit Gera with Digangana Suryavanshi. She reveals how living with him inside the house is tough for her. While she cannot trust Ankit anymore, she mentions that she still has a soft corner for him.

Bigg Boss announced that the best performers of the budget task -- Kishwer Merchantt-Aman Verma and Vikas Bhalla-Yuvika Chaudhary -- would get their bags back and the couples were overjoyed about it. 

Later, Bigg Boss gave the housemates an opportunity to make an appeal to the captain jodi -- Vikas and Yuvika -- to exchange their partners with a preferred partner. However, only two jodis were allowed to change their partners.

While most of them refused to swap as they were comfortable with their pairing, Rimi Sen-Suyyash Rai and Aman-Kishwer requested for a partner exchange. But Bigg Boss rejected Aman-Kishwer's plea as they have been performing the tasks well.

Surprisingly, many contestants wished to exchange their partners with Prince Narula, who was rejected by most of them on the premiere day.

Later, the captains revealed the new jodis of the house -- Prince-Suyyash and Rochelle Maria Rao-Rimi. While the new couples seemed happy with the pairing, how long is the joy going to last? Only time will tell.
