U hv put ur points across very well. But I don't agree on ur tag dat BB is either fair or unfair. According 2 their convinience BB is fair or unfair. For example in d case of Rags, whom I supported, BB very cleverly had her nominated, though not even one vote she had got frm d housemates. BB realised tht coz of her genuinely warm nature, no housemate would nominate her nd so BB nominated her. During votes, I was aghast tht she got lesser votes than most, but most ppl concurred tht it was very possible as she wasn't interesting nd many found her boring.
Well I know you are pretty logical and unbiased poster so I respect your opinion. In every season Rags, Gulabo kinds of contestants are evicted first. Not only that rags failed to perform task assigned by BB, but she did not even make a genuine attempt to do what BB had asked her. I love Rags as a human being and I believe that she indeed got less votes.
Mahek initailly didn't hv dat much of a fan following, but so didn't many other housemates. PM was d most popular in d inital weeks. So though Mahek was nominated, it was an even weaker housemate wid lesser votes tht would get evicted. But after her fight wid Sky, he fan following started building up. Frankly speaking I started giving her an observant look whn she tried to stop Sid frm using abuses nd also took on Sky. Frm den onwards she was getting very strong. Ironically d stronger she got, d more her bashers became vocal abt Salman favouring her.
Mehak def didnt have much following and many actually labelled her as most instigating housemate specially with her role in PB- Shraddha fight. She gained public attention mainly because of SKy and later coz of sid. Viewers loved the way she handled those two men and she got a stronger fan base. But if you think logically, then as soon as she patched up with both and sid, she lost attention again. She wasnt getting any footage in her nomination week and she did not have anyone to pick up fights with, specially after patch up with sky. This was turning point in my opinion. If you remove sky and sid entirely from the show, then do you think Mehak would still get so much attention ? People only talk about either her morning dances or fights with sky/sid ...anything else about her that people find her so entertaining ? I personally think she received less votes compared to others.
Yes she patched up wid Sky, but dat does not mean her fan base starts decreasing. Initially most of d contestants, especailly d unknown ones, nd Mahek at least 4 me was totally unkown, fans can flactuating, but den dey only keep increasing or remain static. As u must hv seen, once some1 becomes a fan of a housemate, den even later on however much wrong dey maybe, but d fans will zealously defend dem. As for Mahek, she only got stronger nd stronger, so even if she was subdued d week of her eviction, I doubt dat her fan-base had decreased. Also if I were 2 accept d fact dat she got lesser votes than others, I can accept only abt maybe Amar, as he has a very well setup PR machinery outside, but Sid nd Sho, unlikely.
So whn in d 10th week, first spoiler came tht Sho was evicted, it was expected as she had got d lowest votes nd Mahek d highest. Den BB manipulated nd had Mahek evicted, which was a shocker. It was out in d open dat Mahek was evicted by BB due 2 Salman's insistence.
After dis der has been a relentless support 2 hv Mahek back as WC. Now BB isn't even dat magnanimous dat dey'll openly say dat dey unfairly removed Mahek. so dis poll 2 hv one evicted contestant as WC. It is almost guaranteed tht Mahek will be in. But den i'm afraid, just like dey evicted her, coz d pressure was too much abt Salman favouring Mahek, dey may again get pressurized not 2 hv Mahek back as WC nd dat will be twice unfair 4 Mahek nd her fans.
Well her return to the show, makes the whole thing sound very fishy. Its like you purposely evict a contestant, then have sallu bash housemates and next week you bring contenstant back when there are only couple of weeks left for finale. It is not fair that a contenstant gets to go out and rethink her entire strategy and come back. The others have no clue about how they portrayed on national TV, but now Mehak knows everything and she is certain to one of the finalists. Nobody is gonna pick fights after salman;s dose so she is pretty safe.
Lets see. I am not against Mehak but I dont like the way things are moving. WC should enter at least a month before the finale.
Seems unlikely tht no one will pick up fights wid Mahek, in fact all will be all d more antagonistic towards her, but maybe a little subtler or not?
Yeah dis season has been all topsy turvy nd I haven't watched BB since Mahek's eviction, but d whole handling of d show in dis season leaves much to be desired. Whether innumerable WCs as contestants or host interference or unfair eviction or last minute WC entry. So since already d show has lost it's way, might as well hv Mahek as WC entry nd den hope she wins.
