With just a few days to go for the finale, "Bigg Boss 8" contestants were once again tested.

The "Torture Cage" task, wherein each member of the house (excluding Upen Patel) was made to press and hold buttons next to their names, brought out aggression in the contestants. On completion, the winner would be awarded with ₹25 lakh.

Rahul Mahajan, who was one of the first to give up, told Pritam Singh ahead of the task how the prize money doesn't matter to him. Ali Quli Mirza, Mahek Chahal, Karishma Tanna and Sambhavna Seth walked out of the cage citing fatigue and boredom as reasons for not finishing the task.

Gautam Gulati, Dimpy Mahajan and Pritam were the ones actively participating in the task. Dimpy, who left after a while, had a bitter argument with Upen, who according to her was biased towards KT for allowing her to avail the special privilege of nominating a contestant before anyone else could.

The "Diya aur Baati Hum" actor, who excelled in the "Hijack Task" by holding onto his seat for 36 hours straight, reportedly left the task after Ali provoked him using inappropriate words.

According to Bigg Boss Live News, Twitter handle responsible for breaking "BB8" news, Pritam has won the prize money.

In other news, Mahek will reportedly be evicted from the mad house on Wednesday's episode. However, if social media buzz is anything to go by, another contestant (possibly Dimpy) will also be shown the doors along with the "36 China Town" actor.

If, as reported, double eviction takes place, the house will be left with only six contestants: Gautam Gulati, Karishma Tanna, Pritam Singh, Ali Quli Mirza, Sambhavna Seth and Rahul Mahajan.
