Actor Upen Patel, who was eliminated from "Bigg Boss 8" during the mid-week eviction on Thursday, said that he had a "lifetime experience" inside the controversial house.

"I had a lifetime experience in 'Bigg Boss'. I wish if I could have stayed inside for some more time," Patel told IANS. 

"I think other contestants were playing a better game, that's why audience voted me out this week. But I'm happy that I got a chance to enter the 'Bigg Boss' house," he added.

Recently, the 34-year-old actor started getting involved in unnecessary fights with his opponents in the reality show, forcing them to propose his name for this week's elimination episode.

However, Patel added that he couldn't resist those fights, due to some situations inside the house. "I think the concept of the show is such that you cannot stay out of fights. For audience it is a show, but for me its reality where I have to stay there all time."

Meanwhile, Sonali Raut, Dimpy Mahajan, Karishma Tanna, Pritam Singh and Ali Quli Mirza were the other contestants in the danger zone this week.

The grand finale of the show, which airs on Colors, will happen on 3 January with the remaining contestants.
