Announced as the dictator of 'Gautam City' as part of the luxury budget task, Gautam used his powers to entertain, order and punish his civilians.
While Ali Quli Mirza was made to sing and pester the contestants, the ladies were asked to turn in their makeup supplies in a box next to the ruler's dias. Dressed in uniform, the housemates did follow the captain's orders but conspired at the same time.
Praneet Bhatt, who hugged and made-up with Gautam after a major fallout, continued to harbor negative feelings for him. He said the "Diya aur Baati Hum" actor wasn't a good leader and that he should've chosen the path of peace instead of creating mayhem.
Meanwhile, Gautam, who has been asked to rest in the activity area is privy to the live footage. Miffed with Praneet's idea of him, he vows not to maintain any friendship with him and rebukes Puneet Issar for making him iron his differences out .
In other news, Diandra Soares, was spotted warming up to the captain. She even offered to feed him dinner. Surprised and taken aback, Gautam agreed to her proposal. Is this sudden change of heart a part of Diandra's strategy or is she finally ready to let go of the past? Only time will tell.
In the meantime, the contestants might be irked under Gautam's rule but the viewers are loving every bit of the task. Calling it 'the most entertaining task of the season', fans have tweeted interesting opinions. Here are some of them:
