Mohanlal, the host of Bigg Boss Malayalam is expected to name the contestant who will be eliminated from the house this week on Aug 18 episode. On Monday, Aug 13, the contestants had named five nominees for elimination - Ranjini Haridas, Archana Suseelan, Pearle Maaney, Aristo Suresh and Srinish. After analysing the official poll, Bigg Boss will decide who to eliminate this weekend.

In the initial phases of voting, it was Ranjini Haridas who became the most likely contestant to get eliminated from the house. However, on Thursday, Aug 16, and Friday, Aug 17, things took an unexpected turn, and Ranjini amassed a hefty number of votes. As Ranjini slowly started her journey towards the safe zone, viewers on social media platforms alleged foul play and said that Asianet is manipulating the voting process in favor of the 'Idea Star Singer' anchor.

Pearle Maaney, who has a huge fanbase on social networking platforms, will also most likely be saved from eviction. Serial actress Archana Suseelan will also make her way to the safe zone; all credit goes to her impeccable performance as the captain of the house in the penultimate week.

As per social media trends, the most likely contestant to go out of the house will be either Srinish or Aristo Suresh. Even though Srinish is a loving figure among female audiences, his minimal  participation in luxury tasks may negatively impact him during the time of elimination. On the other hand, Suresh has been repeatedly asking Bigg Boss to eliminate him from the house for the past couple of days, after fellow contestants lashed at him over his alleged romantic relationship with Pearle Maaney.

As per IB Times poll, the most likely contestant who will be evicted from the house is Ranjini Haridas. 33.11 percent of our readers argue that Ranjini Haridas should go out of the house, while 28.58 percent believes Pearle should be evicted.

Let us wait until 09.00 pm to know who will be evicted from the Bigg Boss Malayalam house this week.
