In an attempt to win the TRP game, makers of high-voltage reality show "Bigg Boss 8" have kick-started a new series – "Bigg Boss Halla Bol" – wherein the five champions – Gautam Gulati, Pritam Singh, Karishma Tanna, Dimpy Mahajan, Ali Quli Mirza – will be seen competing five challengers – Mahek Chahal, Sambhavna Seth, Rahul Mahajan, Sana Khan, Ajaz Khan.

This is a clear indication of the torrential times ahead of which fights, heated arguments and juicy gossips will form an essential part. Two days into the new format, and the tiffs have begun. In the prelude to Monday's episode Sambhavna was spotted attacking Dimpy with her slippers. Meanwhile, Ajaz was seen getting physically abusive with Ali.

However, the anger followed by violence is not what it looks like. According to a source quoted by Bollywood Life, the challengers have been assigned tasks and asked to target specific contestants to spice things up.

For instance, Mahek Chahal has been entrusted with the job of flirting with Gautam. This doesn't come across as surprising, as he is clearly one of the popular and good-looking contestants the house has.

In other news, Sambhavna has been asked to poke Dimpy, and the latter's estranged husband Rahul will be seen trying to break the male bonding in the house.

So, will the Champions, who have survived 15 weeks in the mad house and are officially on breaking point, take unnecessary fights easily or will they resent it? Only time will tell.

"The makers are leaving no stone unturned to add the spice in the show, which is why these challengers have been briefed in advance. So don't be surprised if you see them picking up fights with the champions at the drop of a hat," revealed the source.
