Crazy challenges

After the tight slap exchanged by Nitin and Himanshu on the last episode of Dadagiri, the contestants are getting prepared to face the dadas who only seem to be getting more cruel as the days pass by. The seventh episode of Dadagiri this Saturday, August 22, 7 pm on UTV Bindass is full of action packed stunts, completely whacked out dares and full throttle entertainment.

On day seven of the boot camp, the fighters are woken up at 5.30 am and allotted merely four minutes to get ready with breakfast and any extra time taken is to be added to their dare, which will take place in Vishal’s Macho Zone. Once the contestants reach the place, they realise the magnitude of fear that would engulf most on this dare.
The contestants have to hang upside down like a monkey, cross a bridge and collect ribbons at the end of it, return to the start and tie the ribbons at their respective coloured sections. The crazy enough dare just gets worse with the contestants having to bear with water gushing at them with enormous force and they have to use every inch of physical and mental strength to pull this off. The bottom three are sent away to Sonali’s Playground to face another one of her crazy dares.  At Sonali’s Playground, the
bottom three contestants have to pass six levels of the limbo game without touching the stick.

This they have to do after filling their stomachs after each level with extremely disgusting concoctions named juices. One of them would be the contestants having to chew five paans, spit it into a glass and drink the mixture while another one would be a combination of chicken sausages, ruhafza, tomato juice and chocolate sauce.
The one who comes out of this disgusting combination of juices and the limbo game in one piece has the privilege of not having to face the eliminations.
Watch the contestants as they struggle to survive the meanest show and face elimination in the seventh week of this journey.
