Bigg Boss 8 Recap: Did Farah Khan Do A Worthy Job Of Replacing Salman Khan?

The task of filling Salman Khan‘s shoes as the host of Bigg Boss is a lofty one, and Farah Khan has been given this huge task. The thing is, I don’t think it’s right to compare the both of them – not yet, anyway. Salman has been a fabulous host through all these years and we are obviously a little too used to him, but Farah should be given a fair chance too. Here’s a low down of what happened on Farah’s hosting debut on Bigg Boss Halla Bol.

1. Farah Is Trying

As I said, we cannot compare! But Farah is really trying her best to add her own spin to the show, and so far, I like it. She’s not as authoritative as Salman but is more friendly to the contestants.  The new contestants, as I already told you, are Rahul Mahajan, Sambhavna Seth, Ajaz Khan, Sana Khan and Mahek Chahal, and Farah welcomed them all, calling them Challengers (the top 5 will now be referred to as Champions).

2. Mehak Chahal Changes Her Champion

So when  Salman introduced all the Challengers over the weekend, Mahek had said that she’s going to be challenging Gautam Gulati. However, I wonder what happened to her once she got in the house, as she changed her challenger to Pritam. Did Gautam scare her already? The others called Gautam a ‘khatra’ too.

3. Salman’s Awwdorable Video!

Salman sent out an emotional video for the contestants wishing them the best and saying how he didn’t want to leave but had prior work commitments. The video made everyone, including Salman, tear up a bit. Awww, right?

4. Farah’s Punishment #1

So Farah said she’s going to observe all contestants each week and one will be punished by the end of it based on any sort of misbehavior and misconduct. And because, since the time Ajaz has been the house, all he’s been doing is bring up old stories to create conflict, Farah punished him by making him Rahul’s slave for the week. Ajaz for now has refused to do that, but let’s see how long he can go with that.

I’m really looking forward to all the fireworks in the house. What are your thoughts on Bigg Boss Halla Bol? Drop a comment!
