- Hiten and Priyank were in the bottom two
- The housemates decided to evict Hiten
- "It came as a shock to me," said Hiten
It came as a shock even to Priyank, when Hiten was announced to be eliminated from the show. Show host Salman Khan also appeared visibly upset with the decision and told Hiten, he's been evicted as he was a strong contender.
After his exit from the show, Hiten spoke about his fellow contestants, telling PTI: "Quite a few of them are fake on the show. People do things to be noticed." Hina Khan, to be precise: "I think Vikas Gupta is good on the show, I still feel, Hina Khan is fake, Aakash changes his colour depending on which group is in the majority. Priyank and Luv do not seem to exist in the house," PTI quoted him as saying.
Earlier this month, Hina Khan, who quickly became one of the most trending and criticised contestants of the Bigg Boss 11 house, also had picked a fight of sorts with Hiten. During a heated exchange of words, she referred to the message Hiten's wife Gauri Pradhan had sent him during the initial days of the show. Hina's move was condemned by Gauri during a surprise visit on the show, saying it was not for everyone to analyse because it's personal. Hiten Tejwani and Gauri Pradhan married in 2004 and are parents to two children.
Hiten, who had once saved Shilpa in the eviction sessions, is aware of the negative votes he's received and said he did not expect "Shilpa to return the favour" but did not expect to be ousted from the game either. "It (eviction) came as a shock to me. I deserved to be in the house as compared to some of them like Priyank and Luv. I think I was a threat to the other contestants. I feel people were waiting to chuck out the strong contestants," PTI quoted him as saying.
After Hiten Tejwani's eviction on Sunday's episode, Bigg Boss directly nominated seven contestants as punishment for chalking out game plan strategies. Love to watch Bigg Boss 11? Watch this space for more updates.
