Here's what to expect from Khatron Ke Khiladi tonight

Last updated on: September 07, 2009 17:39 IST

Kathron Ke Khiladi Level 2 kicks off today. And the action returns to Cape Town, South Africa once again.

The 13 female celebrities include a mix of leggy models, sexy singers, a tough wrestler, beautiful anchors and hot television actors. Each celebrity has a commoner as her partner, unlike last year where they were paired with army officers.

Kathron Ke Khiladi had a sneak preview last weekend, and we tell you what to expect from today's show.

The first stunt sees the women being blind-folded and brought to Hout Bay harbour. They have to walk on a long reclined platform and unhook small flags, even as a strong wind (as much as 100 miles per hour) tries to blow them over and they get sprayed with water.

The stunt is not easy as it sounds, and most contestants managed to unhook only four to six flags. Only two contestants -- Jesse Randhwa and Shveta Salve -- managed to unhook eight flags. Sonika Kaliraman cut her chin and required stitches in her attempt to do the stunt.
 
The second task required the girls to sit in an enclosed glass box. Their partners had to pick up earthworms from a bowl with their mouths and spit them out in a box. The pair who took the longest time to transfer the worms was evicted.

As host Akshay Kumar reminded the contestants -- 'jo dar gaya woh ghar gaya' -- they had to try their best. But Shonali Nagrani and her partner were evicted from the show.

Shveta Salve was exempt from performing the second task, as she received a safety band for doing so well in the previous task.

The new season promises to have twice the excitement with scarier and more dangerous stunts than the first. The girls will be seen battling real crocodiles and snakes and jumping off planes. This season will also see Akshay performing stunts, like swimming with sharks and more.

Watch Fear Factor- Khatron Ke Khiladi from Mondays to Thursdays at 9 pm on Colors.
