The fifth season of Bigg Boss Tamil is inching towards the finish line and we are just three weeks away from the grand finale of the show. With just a few more days for the show to end, the makers have planned several exciting surprises and twists for the audience and the first of the many unexpected moves are revealed. It has been revealed that there will be a double eviction in tonight's episode of Bigg Boss Tamil 5 and this development has come as an unexpected move. The shooting for both the weekend episodes happened yesterday (December 25) at the EVP Film City and so, the eviction results are known.

Six contestants were nominated for this weekend's eviction process - Ciby, Varun, Priyanka, Pavni, Akshara, and Niroop. Among the six, it has come to notice that Varun and Akshara have been evicted from the game and their eviction has opened to a mixed response from the people on social media. Both Akshara and Varun gave their potential best when it came to the physical tasks and they were considered to be strong contenders to become the finalists. However, their eviction has come as an unexpected move. No one anticipated seeing a double eviction this weekend and it has come as a big shocker for the people, both inside and outside the house.

Akshara and Varun shared a beautiful friendship and their rapport was adored by their respective fans on social media. It is interesting that their friendship bond has continued with the eviction as well. Akshara has risen to good prominence among the masses after her participation in the ongoing edition of Bigg Boss and we can expect that to reflect in her career. Similarly, Varun will also be anticipating a good opening for his upcoming Tamil movie, Joshua: Imai Pol Kaakha, directed by Gautham Vasudev Menon.

Varun and Akshara's double eviction will now leave eight contestants inside the house - Priyanka, Raju, Ciby, Niroop, Thamarai Selvi, Pavni, Amir, and Sanjiv.
