Kaun Banega Crorepati 9 Episode 7 kicked off with Mansi, who hails from Maharashtra, on the Hot Seat - she was selected in the last episode's Fastest Finger First round. As usual, Amitabh Bachchan began with explaining the rules of the game to Mansi but was taken aback when the contestant needed help from the audience to answer the very first question. When asked if the difficulty level was higher than what she had expected, Mansi said she was just a little confused. Mansi exhausted two of her lifelines by the third question and used up all four by the time she was to tackle the fifth one for Rs 10,000. "In which sport did Deepa Karmakar represent India in the 2016 Olympics?" she was asked but Mansi answered incorrectly. However, she took home a basic prize money of Rs 10,000.

The next contestant to come on board was Nivi Pathak, who is a student from Jabalpur. Nivi also faced quite a bit of difficulty while answering the first four questions and exhausted all four lifelines by the fifth question itself. She tackled a few more questions but was stuck mid-way when Big B urged her to quit else she would lose what she's won so far. She decided to leave just seconds before the stopwatch seized, prompting the show host to say: "I almost had a heart attack!". Nivi went home with Rs 80,000.
