Day 96 in the Bigg Boss 15 house continues with Shamita Shetty being picked as stubborn. She chooses Abhijit Bichukale as her competitor. Abhijit defends himself by comparing himself to Rakhi Sawant. He calls himself humble, innocent and down-to-earth, leaving Shamita shocked and laughing. Abhijit then accuses Shamita of sleeping on the bed all day long, making Nishant Bhat and Pratik Sehajpal laugh. The task turns fun and the VIPs agree that Abhijit is stubborn.
Karan Kundrra agrees with most of Shamita's points. Thus, Shamita wins the indoor garden area with the round.
Abhijit gets angry and still in a joking way says that Rakhi will take him down but he will take the trophy nonetheless. Umar Riaz is happy seeing him finally pour his 'soul' out.
The contestants have to fight for ego. Pratik is Bigg Boss' pick and he chooses Abhijit. Pratik calls out how Abhijit is all about 'me'. Abhijit calls himself confident and points out how Pratik has tattooed 'Aham Brahmasmi'. Devoleena Bhattacharjee comes to defend Pratik and states how Abhijit pointed out that he has never worked a day in his life and never will. Abhijit says he is flexible after the buzzer goes off. Karan accepts Pratik's accusation. Umar, on the other hand, says that it is not ego but pride. The VIPs decide that they agree with Pratik on one point.
The argument continues long after the buzzer goes off. Bigg Boss interrupts them and reminds everyone who are the judges. Umar makes Abhijit win the round. With that, Abhijit gets the bedroom area.
Shamita and Nishant then discuss how the tables turned from Pratik winning to Abhijit becoming the winner. Nishant then points out how it would be unfair to Abhijit. Tejasswi Prakash, on the other hand, shows her support for Pratik and doesn't even let Rashami Desai speak. Pratik then shows his frustration to Nishant. The 'ghar ka batwaara' task ends with that.
Rakhi says Pratik doesn't have control over his tongue. Devo, on the other hand, talks about how Abhijit can fast but not work. She then tells Rakhi that she would refuse to talk to Pratik.
Pratik, on the other hand, tells Shamita and Nishant that Rashami does over-acting. The trio then recall all incidents which she was a part of.
Karan asks Abhijit who will take him forward. Abhijit then says that Pratik and Devo were with him but aren't anymore. Abhijit asks Karan to make him VIP before Tejasswi. Nishant also strategizes with Abhijit.
Day 97 begins with the contestants dancing to Phir Milenge Chalte Chalte. TejRan give each other a hug and kiss on waking up. Teja then asks Karan if he will invite her to his March wedding. Umar then says he would pick her up. Rakhi, Karan and Umar dance when Teja says she wouldn't marry him in March.
The first task is for the kitchen. Nishant has to pick who is loudspeaker. He calls Shamita. Nishant says his voice is a part of his personality but Shamita doesn't keep her opinions clearly. Shamita says that she is selectively loud.
Rakhi feels Nishant won the round. Karan also picks Nishant over Shamita. However, they make Shamita win the round. Rakhi disagrees with that loudly. Shamita calls her out for not defending Devo in that way. Devo then explains Rakhi to let Shamita win, after which Rakhi agrees with the decision. Nishant then disagrees and loses his calm. He walks out after saying f*** you guys.
Karan tells Teja that Devo wants to make her lose the Ticket To Finale. Rashami, on the other hand, says there is no favourism. TejRan have an argument and Karan walks out when Teja points out how he hasn't stood up for her. The episode ends on that note.
