Anchal won MTV Roadies 8 ‘Shotcut to Hell’, leaving behind the main contender Mohit and Suchit. This is the first time since 2005 that a girl has won Roadies.
Mohit and Suchit started as prime contenders from probably the first day of the show. Both were mentally and physically tough, both did not believe in dirty politics, but just wanted to perform and go forward. Mohit did have a few close shaves and the shows rules helped save him on those occasions, but Suchit kept going strong all through out the show. The third finalist Anchal was eliminated from the show even before the Roadies team went to Brazil, but she was given a lifeline with three others in Brazil. Anchal won the spot and made it back to Roadies team.
Roadies finale saw Suchit being eliminated first. This was quite strange for many fans of Roadies as Suchit was voted as the viewer’s choice Roadies winner on MTV Roadies official Facebook page. That left Anchal and Mohit to compete.
The winner was then decided by voting. It was quite obvious to all that Roadies group did not want Mohit to win. Though he was deserving, many in the group had grudges against him as he was the main reason the others were eliminated. In such a scenario, a Vote out to decide the winner became a farce.
Anchal did prove her mettle when she performed well in last few episodes, but she no-where had the same zeal that Mohit or Suchit showed. Although Anchal has been crowned the MTV Roadies winner, many fans will feel the real winner is Mohit and Suchit.
