We know Bigg Boss 8 has gotten you glued to your television screens night after night already. So after the recaps of premiere night and epsiode 1, here we are again doing a round up of episode 3. Even though it is too soon to peg people as anything really, we must say, it sure is getting interesting by the day!

Day 2 in the house has been kind of fun.

The morning song was most apt – “Rehne ko ghar nahi, sone ko bistar nahi…” Aww. Too close to home that song must’ve been for our contestants. Next up, tonight the Secret Society wanted the contestants to sacrifice their sweat for the water they need. Sukirti Kandpal and Minissha Lamba were picked by the SS to cycle each time the contestants wanted water. It is then, that we realize what a pink bunny Minissha looks like!

Moving on, the cycles kept getting harder to paddle so it was obvious that the water supply was limited. Diandra Soares caught our fancy the most here. Not only did she create a fuss over drinking the nal ka paani, she also thought it was appropriate to wash her hair when the others could barely wash their faces. It’s a miracle though that no one has picked a fight over that yet.

Speaking of fight, a sleep deprived Upen Patel snapped at Sukirti and then called her “drama” when she shed a few tears. Already Upen? Even Armaan Kohli was nice to Tanishaa Mukerji in the first few episodes.

Move over Upen-Sukirti, Gautam Gulati and Diandra are in the house and massaging their way into each others hearts apparently. While Soares gave Gulati a back massage to help him deal with his sleep depravation, Gulati returned the favour by rubbing Odomos all over her legs (a little inappropriately, we might add!)

It was then that Sushant Divjikar made an appearance to say that his legs are hotter than Diandra’s and the latter agreed! We are expecting major BFFness and bitchiness between these two in the future and are sufficiently excited about that.

Arya was, unsurprisingly, spotted cracking some potty jokes and was also seen bonding with Karishma Tanna (who will emerge as a mastermind soon enough, just wait!). And could Bigg Boss please return Shakuni Praneet Bhatt’s suitcase? Shakuni has started looking like Sudama.

People who haven’t managed to be as visible yet are Soni Singh and Natasa Stankovic. Also, a lot is being said about Sonali Raut but she just hasn’t managed to catch our attention in any way yet.

Well, all said and done, what we really miss is Bigg Boss’ baritone voice. After all, the show does seem incomplete without “Bigg Boss chahte hain…”
