Contestants

The season will see an eclectic mix of celebrity contestants take up the most daring challenges. Comedy queen Bharti Singh and husband Haarsh Limbachiyaa will be pitted against each other. Along with the real-life couple, reel life jodi of Zain Imam and Jasmin Bhasin from Tashan-e-Ishq will also face their fears. Bigg Boss superstars Vikas Gupta and Sreesanth would once again lock horns with each other in the series.

There were quite a few underdogs, who managed to beat all odds to reach the top. The finale task was a grand one designed by Rohit Shetty. It had a number of stages and many difficult elements packed in it. The top three contestants really had a close competition and even we are excited to know, who won the task.”

Controversies

Even before the show could hit the screens, it got embroiled in a number of controversies. Shamita, who was one of the first celebs to come on-board, fell sick few days before the shoot.

Also, this season the contestants met with a lot of accidents during shoots. While Vikas Gupta got bitten by a snake, Aditya Narayan hurt his eyes and Zain came back with an injured hand. It is said, Rohit Shetty, who is very particular about safety, was furious by the developments.
