Wild card entrant Ajaz Khan was evicted from "Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi" Season 5 (KKK5) on Sunday.

The actor faced the elimination round with Deana Uppal, after both the contestants failed to perform well in the previous tasks.

Earlier six contestants Ranvir Shorey-Salman Yusuff Khan, Karanvir Bohra- Debina Bonnerjee and Ajaz Khan-Deana Uppal were paired up to perform the tasks.

In the first task "Car ka Kalakar", Shorey-Salman beat the other two pairs and completed the task in one minute 22 seconds thus saving them from elimination.

The second task "Boom", which was performed by the remaining two pairs Bohra- Bonnerjee and Ajaz- Uppal saw the former pair emerge victorious, leading Ajaz and Uppal to elimination round.

The elimination task of the episode appeared quite eerie as Ajaz and Uppal had to compete against each other in a morgue. They were put into a deep freezer infested with insects. The contestants had to brave their fears and find a key to free them.

While Ajaz gave up quite early quitting at around three minutes, Uppal stuck around braving her fear of closed spaces and cockroaches for 11 minutes before being pulled out. Even though she failed to find the key, she was declared safe for her commendable attempt.

Ajaz was eventually eliminated and he now joins the list of previous evictees Pooja Gor, Rochelle Maria Rao, Mugdha Godse, Dayanand Shetty, Geeta Tandon and Gauahar Khan.

In a surprise twist, the next episode of the show will have Gauahar, who was evicted from the show last week, re-entering the show. But from the promos it appeared that fellow contestant Bonnerjee was quite displeased with the actress' entry.
