Last weekend, the "Bigg Boss 8" contestants were in surprise after the host announced that all the housemates were safe and there will be no eviction.

But he also stunned them by saying that the contestants, who were nominated last week, will be in the danger zone this week as well.

And to add a twist to the game, the makers have decided to keep a mid-week eviction this week. According to reports, the mid-week eviction will take place on Thursday, and thus voting lines are opened until Wednesday.

Six contestants who are nominated for this week include, Sonali Raut, Dimpy Mahajan, Pritam Singh, Upen Patel, Ali Quli Mirza and Karishma Tanna. Gautam Gulati and Puneet Issar are in the safe zone.

As per reports, this week three contestants will get eliminated, and the remaining five will be declared champions during the grand finale on 3 January.

The champions will further fight with four ex-contestants to win the reality show. The four ex-contestants include, Ajaz Khan, Rahul Mahajan, Sambhavna Seth and Mahek Chahal.

They will be a part of the spin-off of the reality show, which will be hosted by Farah Khan from 4 January. The new contestants will be called as Challengers in the "Bigg Boss Halla Bol". So, after 4 January it will be Champions vs Challengers and one member from each team will get evicted during the weekend.

Meanwhile, viewers have only two more days to vote for their favourite contestant and save them. Last week, there were reports Sonali received least votes and was to be eliminated from the house; however, Salman saved her.

So, will she get evicted on Thursday or will she make it to the top five champions' team?
