During last week's 'access all area' ticket task, Jay Bhanushali was criticised by the housemates for thinking about the prize money and not letting others play the game. The housemates tried their best to make him understand but he shot back saying he wants to play by his own principles. Later during the Weekend Ka Vaar episode, host Salman Khan slammed him for how he played the game and called his principles 'fake'.
Salman Khan questioned him, "The prize money was Bigg Boss', why were you so strongly taking a stand to save your image?" In his defense, Jay said that he wasn't trying to save his image and aso opened up about his fears.
Jay said, "Sir, I was not all thinking about my image. Had I been thinking about my image, I would have done the same things that other housemates did. My weakness is that I've never played a money game ever in my life. I shared this with Nishant also that when I was in 10th-11th my father, after his retirement, had invested all his savings in the share market and he lost everything."

He continued, "Ever since then I've had this fear and this money task was like a gamble to me and this was the only reason I was scared to put the prize money at stake. I've learnt during the pandemic that whatever you have in hand save it and don't think that you will spend now and so something in future to earn. I was under the impression that the task would end after one round and we would get another way to enter the house by doing some other task which involves physical strength and not money."
Talking about the task, Jay later had to sacrifice Rs 25 lakh to enter the house. For the uninitiated, VishwaSuntree told Jay that those staying in the jungle may get inside the main house but in exchange for Rs 25 lakh which would be deducted from the prize money. And the other option was to leave the show. It was then Jay decided that everyone should stay in the show and sacrificed Rs 25 lakh.
