Every day is nothing short of a battle for the surviving "Bigg Boss 8" contestants. Having reached a saturation point, the housemates are now losing it on the slightest of provocations.

The "Torture Cage" task, in which Pritam Singh was declared the winner after Gautam Gulati voluntarily left it midway, was a real test of patience. Having won the challenge, the RJ got himself immunity and the prize money – ₹25 lakh – which is to be shared among his team members (Champions – Ali Quli Mirza, Sambhavna Seth).

Just when they thought that the game was on their side, the makers changed things a little. The Challengers – Gautam, Karishma Tanna, Dimpy and Rahul Mahajan – were given an opportunity to try and win the money back.

In a unique task the contestants – Sambhavna and Gautam – were asked to run an iron rod around an electrified maze. They were also instructed that if and when the rod touches the maze there would be a low intensity blast, which would mark the end of the inmate's turn.

According to social media buzz, the "Diya Aur Baati Hum" actor has apparently won the sum for his team. Bigg Boss Live News posted, "#BB8 #BiggBossHallaBol #livefeed Correction : @TheGautamGulati won the task by beating Sambhavna & Challengers are Now Champions."

This task obviously turned things around and instigated a few more fights. While the Pritam-Gautam argument was settled by the much-in-love couple, Dimpy and Sambhavna almost verbally killed each other.

However, bitterness is not the only emotion in the house. UpMa in some harmless flirtations when the "36 China Town" actor demanded a kiss from KT. On turning down his request, Upen walked towards the exit door carrying his luggage saying that he would leave the house if she didn't kiss him. Giving in to his persistence, the "Grand Masti" actress planted a kiss on his cheeks.

In other news, Gautam, Karishma and Pritam has been qualified for the final week, whereas Ali, Dimpy, Sambhavna and Rahul are in this week's danger zone.
