This year, the show was shot in Spain, where 12 celebrity contestants had to win tasks facing their fear against animals, insects, heights and many other such weaknesses. The game tests both physical and mental strengths. The top 3 finalists are Hina Khan, Ravi Dubey & Shantanu Maheshwari. According to sources, Shantanu Maheshwari is the winner. But the reports are yet to be confirmed as though the Grand Finale has already been shot but it has not been aired yet.
