Six contestants - Punarnavi Bhupalam, Ravikrishna, Mahesh Vitta, Himaja Reddy, Varun Sandesh and Rahul Sipligunj - were nominated for the elimination from Bigg Boss Telugu 3. One of them would have to leave the house at the end of the sixth week.

Big boss adopted a new strategy for the nomination process in the sixth week. The housemates were divided into 5 pairs – Baba Baskar-Mahesh Vitta, Vithika Sheru-Rahul Sipligunj, Sreemukhi-Himaja Reddy, Ali Reza-Ravikrishna and Punarnavi Bhupalam-Varun Sandesh. One of these pairs would stand and rest of them would pour mud on one of the two to nominate him/her for the elimination from Bigg Boss Telugu 3.

All the pairs went through this process and Punarnavi Bhupalam, Ravikrishna, Mahesh Vitta, Himaja Reddy and Rahul Sipligunj were nominated for the elimination. Big boss instructed captain Siva Jyothi to directly nominate one contestant for eviction and she named Varun Sandesh.

The audience can save their favourite contestants from the eviction by casting votes for them through missed phone calls and HotStar App. One of the six inmates, who gets the least number of votes, would be evicted over the weekend.
