It was yet another episode of Khatron Ke Khiladi 8 and this week it had Girls competing with the Boys. It was quite a spine chilling competition as both the parties had to ensure that they complete the task any how. Shantanu Maheshwari from the Boy’s team was pitted against Geeta Phogat from the Girl’s team. The task required the contestants to cross over 5 poles with no support. They had to get to the other side by crossing all 5 poles till the end, without giving up. It was quite tough as there was no side support, however Shantanu somehow managed to complete the whole stunt, while Geeta gave up midway. Needless to say, it was Shantanu who won the challenge. Given Geeta is a strong contestant, Shantanu looked nervous but with her giving up half way, it made it simpler for Shantanu to win the task.
The second stunt had Lopamudra compete from the girl’s team and Ravi from the boy’s. The task involved them attracting more leaches to their bodies and then shooing them away within 20 seconds. The girls team opted to go first. Lopamudra lay down first inside a tub filled with leeches. She did a pretty fair job. As a matter of fact, she gave more than 100 per cent to the task. On the other hand, Ravi Dubey got into the tub with an attitude that he will win it and even before taking up the challenge, his over confidence took a toll on him. He lost the task eventually against Lopamudra. While Ravi attracted 1.425 grms of leeches, Lopamudra led with 1.515 grms of leeches.
Third stunt involved the contestants breaking the hurdles and collecting as many flags as possible while being tied to the forefront of a speeding truck. While Manveer represented the Boy’s team, Hina Khan represented the girl’s team. Manveer went ahead and did a good job, but Hina passed out much before the performance of the task. The heat caught up on her health and almost everyone thought she was going to collapse. But, Hina surprised everyone by going for it and completed the task with intense power. Hina, at first, was declared as the winner, leading by 1 extra flag but then Manveer recollected that he forgot to give one flag that he had accumulated. Thus a tie was declared between them. Now, whether that was fair or no is a debatable question.
