Mumbai, July 5: Popular model and social media influencer Erika Packard, who made her television debut with ‘Khatron Ke Khiladi 12’, has became the first contestant to be evicted from the show.
She is the daughter of late bodybuilder Gavin Packard of Irish-American descent, who played villainous roles predominately in Bollywood and Malayalam movies.
Erika said: “It makes me very sad to get evicted and end this incredible adventure so soon. I had a great experience doing the show. It was my first time in the world of television, it was my first time doing everything, including doing stunts and travelling with such a big crew and competing with my fellow contestants.”
After competing with Nishant Bhat in her first task, Erika, ended up with the ‘Fear fanda’. She got another opportunity and performed a stunt with Mohit Malik and Tushar Kalia. Despite trying her level best, she landed up in the elimination round.
She further shared: “I thought it would be a bit difficult considering I am not from the industry but surprisingly we got along from the first day. Everyone was polite, nice and encouraging as they knew am new. I am going to stay in touch with all my friends, especially my girlfriends I made on the show.”
Talking about her experience, she added: “Being on a reality show like this was itself a fear for me which I am happy I have overcome. Talking about the stunts I would say I gave my best; I panicked a bit during the elimination stunt and hence couldn’t place the keys.”
“It was just about who did a better job during the stunt. It has been a great learning for me, and I will always cherish the memories I have created here and treasure the lessons I’ve learnt for the rest of my life,”she concluded.
‘Khatron Ke Khiladi 12’ airs on Colors.
