She was the one who swayed every morning to the beats of whatever dance number that was belted out in the Bigg Boss 5  house. Energetic and lively, she looked all set to face the day at every crack of dawn with her regular regimen of yoga, exercises, and joie de vivre.
Well sadly, Bigg Boss 5 viewers will not get to see her graceful moves, her lithe, toned athletic body, her deep husky voice, and her devil-may-care attitude anymore. The reason: 32 year old Mahek Chahal  is the latest contestant to be chucked out. Her eviction came as a shocker to many: for sometime the rumour mills were running in over drive mode that she would win as she was host Salman Khan 's favourite.
She was nominated this week, along with Shonali Nagrani , Siddharth Bhardwaj  and Amar Upadhyay . Expectations were that either Shiddharth or Shonali would get booted. But nay it was Mahek who was asked to go.
The Indian-origin Norwegian model-actress got 10 weeks in the house and when she exited, she became the tenth inmate to be jettisoned. Born and brought up in Norway, she entered Bollywood with ‘Nayee Padosan’ in 2003 and has performed item numbers Chameli, Wanted, Yamla Pagla Deewana, Jai Veeru and also featured in some major TV commercials.
Said Mahek on her eviction: “I am very happy and relieved. I finally get my freedom back. When I entered the show, I thought I would be in the house for maximum two weeks, not more than that. But to my surprise I survived six nominations and I am very proud of myself.”
The Punjabi Jat Sikh will also be remembered for her constant spats with Akashdeep Sky Saigal  who had poked fun at the fact that she had undergone plastic surgery to look prettier. Here eyes breathed fire at that time and she clearly showed he had touched a raw nerve.
She had this to say about herself and the incident on her blog: “Due to family crises I moved back to Norway, to be with my family and support them. During that time i had an accident and broke my jaw. Now i am back, and i will work hard and make it this time. I will get my face back, and work hard and prove to my self and whole of India that i can make it on my own talent.”
With 10 weeks gone, Juhi Parmar , Akashdeep, Siddharth, Shonali, Amar and Indo-Canadian porn star Sunny Leone  are the inmates left. And of course there is the guest Andrew Symonds  and his translator Pooja Misrra . The field obviously is narrowing down.
