Sourabh Raaj Jain was one of the strongest contestants of the ongoing Khatron Ke Khiladi 11. After giving a great performance during a task aired on Saturday, he was safe from elimination. However, fans of Sourabh, known as television's 'Mytho King', got a shock on Sunday. The actor became the second contestant to get evicted from Khatron Ke Khiladi 11.
While Sourabh was declared safe from elimination on Saturday, Arjun Bijlani, the winner of the first 'K Medal', brought a twist to the tale. Arjun decided to use the 'K Medal' to safeguard himself in the final eviction round and nominated Sourabh in place of him. His competitors were Anushka Sen and Mahekk Chahal. For the task, Sourabh, Anushka and Mahekk had to find keys from a cabinet full of cockroaches and snakes. Unfortunately, Sourabh took the maximum time, that is 34 minutes to complete the task.
We love you #SourabhRaajJain

Host Rohit Shetty too was shocked and said he didn't deserve to be evicted. However, he failed to complete the task before Anushka and Maheck and as per the rules, he had to leave the show. Arjun apologised to Sourabh and told, "I do not know how will I compensate for this ever. But I will try." In the middle of this, Khatron Ke Khiladi 11 contestants Shweta Tiwari and Abhinav Shukla felt Sourabh didn't deserve to participate in the elimination stunt and it was wrong on Arjun's part to nominate him.

Medal ko agar use karna tha toh show me hona chahie tha ki khud ke elimination ko mitigate karne ke lie karo
Why to put someone else in this This was done on purpose
To target a person who performed superb in stunts n did not get fanda even a single time#SourabhRaajJain #KKK11

Sourabh's wife Ridhima Jain questioned whether it was fair to nominate him for direct elimination when he was one of the strongest contestants. On Instagram stories, Ridhima wrote, "Question to all… putting up Sourabh Raaj Jain in the direct elimination round when he completed all the stunts, never got Fear fanda, never aborted a stunt… it this correct? Is this justice?"
Nikki Tamboli was the first contestant to face eviction. However, she was brought back on Saturday and she was declared safe after performing a water-based stunt with friend Abhinav.
