On coming out, host Shilpa Shetty asked her to describe her stay in the house in one word and she replied: “Fantastic”.
Asked who the “sweetest” house member was, Rakhi said: “Rahul (Mahajan) was the sweetest among all… We were like a house on fire and I’m sure he will win the game.”
Rakhi entered the “Bigg Boss” house Aug 17 along with 13 other participants, mostly celebrities, to take part in the second season of the programme. The participants are to spend three months closeted in a house sans any communication with the outside world. The winner of the show gets to walk away with a cash prize of Rs.750,000.

A vote-out nomination is held every Monday and a nominated contestant is evicted every Friday based on audience votes.
