From making tea to constructing a roof to survive rain, Devoleena and Arti came neck to neck to win. In the end, Devoleena's team emerged as the winner of the survival task. Salman Khan also announced the confirmed contestants of the show.

Bigg Boss 15 launch has been hosted in a jungle in Nagpur. Host Salman Khan joined the press conference via video conferencing and interacted with everyone. Devoleena took to Instagram earlier on Thursday and shared a picture with Arti and said, "ab hoga jungle mein sirf air sirf dangal.'
Interacting with the media, Salman Khan revealed that the show can be five months long this time. Talking about his relationship with Bigg Boss, he added, "My relationship with Bigg Boss is the only relationship which has lasted this long. Bigg Boss has brought permanency in my life. The four months are committed ones while the eight months we are thinking about." He said, "250 cameras will be looking out for every movement in the jungle and will note even a leaf moving."
"Contestants think Bigg Boss is a piece of cake. It's not. For five months, being worried about their family, if anyone has got covid. These things play on their minds. Some manage to handle. Some don't but everyone has been very strong. The show is not abt physical but mental strength. Hats off to every contestant who show off their real personality on the show. Everyone is unique and people have accepted their real selves. And everyone who has left the show has seen growth on professional and personal front. They can fight any war," said Salman Khan.
