Day 81 opens with the peppy number from 'Student of The Year' – 'Disco Deewane' – putting the housemates in a celebratory mood.

They speak about how he swears at the other housemates and that his violent behaviour with Priya during the jewel thief task was not appropriate. When Priya confronts Rishabh about the swearing, all housemates take Priya’s side.
Later, Bigg Boss asks the winner team of the jewel thief task – Rochelle, Kishwer, Prince and Priya - to mutually nominate two contestants for captainship. When all four fail to arrive at a consensus, they decide to pick up chits to decide the two contenders. Eventually, Prince and Rochelle face off during the captaincy task and the two contenders have to convince the housemates to support them. The housemates have to hook themselves up to the housemate they believe is deserving for the captainship and form a chain with the help of belts.
