  • With everyone inside the house, the contestants are too excited to match their bands to know who they will be sharing the bed with. Rashmi feels uncomfortable sharing her bed and while she is discussing this with Siddharth, Bigg Boss calls them in the living room.
  • The boys are randomly handed their BFF bands after which they enter the house.

Aarti chooses the option “hum aapke hain kaun” after which she gets a red and black band and the task to wash utensils. The display is revolved to show the five-set of boys. Introducing the brother-sister duo with the boys, Salman hurriedly seizes the moment to pull Asim’s leg and we feel we need a break already!

Revealing Paras’ cassanova secrets and Rashmi and Siddharth’s professional-turned-personal sparks, Ameesha spills the beans on the contestants.
  • Ameesha Patela sizzles the stage with her sultry dance performance on Ram Leela‘s song.
  • Dalljiet’s son comes on the stage to wish her luck. The mother-son duo dance to a Bollywood number before Dalljiet goes away to enter the Bigg Boss house.
  • Salman takes Dalljiet through a short video of the boys and how they are in their bedrooms. She chooses Siddharth as partner for bedroom task and Salman wipes off tears of laughter as he feels sorry for the poor chap.
  • Calling her too young to be a mother, Salman leaves Dalljiet “flabbergasted”. Sharing that she has not stopped looking for love, Dalljiet tells Salman that she doesn’t mind falling in love with someone inside the Bigg Boss house. Giving her two options, “dil toh bachcha hai ji” and “love/sex/dhoka“, Dalljiet chooses the latter and lands with a green band. Her duty is to keep the bedroom area clean. The display with the boys is revolved back and Salman introduces them with Dalljiet. At the drop of the hat, Salman takes another dig at Asim’s accent and landing with a “sibling bond” after flirting with Mahira.
