Namitha has been eliminated from Bigg Boss Tamil. She is the fifth contestant to leave the house after Harathi Ganesh, Shree, Ganja Karuppu and Bharani
Oviya, Ganesh Venkatraman and Namitha were in the danger zone this week. In the end, the Billa girl is asked to leave the house as she got lesser votes than other two.
Namitha started as one of the favourites to win the Bigg Boss Tamil. Indeed, she was the biggest celebrity to be part of the show. In the first two weeks, she was active one of the active performers. It appears like the way she treated Oviya and Julie did not go well with the viewers. Her decision to take Gayathri's side apparently backfired.
Nonetheless, Namitha enjoyed a lot of respect among the inmates and would be remembered for giving importance to cleanliness. Also, her courage to teach the inmates on how to use western toilet was hailed by the netizens.
Oviya has been saved, while Ganesh Venkatraman and Namitha are still in the danger zone this week. One among the two is likely to leave the show hosted by Kamal Haasan on Sunday, 23 July.
