Nirmala Chenappa has been evicted from Bigg Boss Kannada 8 on Sunday, 14 March. She is the second contestant to be eliminated from Kiccha Sudeep-hosted show after Dhanushree.

During her stay, she had failed to gel with the inmates and her erratic behaviour had not gone well with the other contestants. Hence, she was pushed to the danger zone by them. Further, she had not given a strong reason for the audience to save her through votes.

Nominated Contestants
This week, Shubha Poonja, Nidhi Subbaiah, Divya Suresh, Vishwanath, Chandrakala Mohan, Geetha Bhat, Nirmala and Prashanth Sambargi were facing the elimination test. On Saturday's episode, Shubha Poonja, Nidhi Subbaiah and Divya Suresh's names were announced safe.

In the end, it boiled down to Nirmala and Chandrakala Mohan and the former was shown the door.

Before leaving, she was asked to directly nominate a contestant and she refused to do it. She stated that she would rather save one contestant than pushing an inmate directly to the danger zone.

However, Prashanth Sambargi was nominated as she had said that he looks "fake" during her conversation with Kiccha Sudeep. Nonetheless, she was not given the opportunity to talk with the host.

This has paved way for the rumours of her being sent to the secret room.

However, there is also a belief among the fans that she might not be given the chance to share her views with Sudeep since she refused to obey Bigg Boss' order to nominate a contestant directly.
