For the second season of their popular show, MTV Ace of Space, MTV designed an interesting on-ground live activity in Lucknow carried out by show host-Vikas Gupta. In a small house with 2 rooms, ex house mates-Pratik Sehjpal, Meisha Iyer, Faizy Boo and Chetna Pande were put inside. Weaving in the show concept, the idea was to test the tenacity of the contestants while playing mind games with them. However, the twist was that here viewers got to decide the destiny of the contestants by interacting live via Facebook and Instagram. Vikas also went to city colleges along with ex-contestants, made them do tasks and shortlist people. Out of the chosen ones, Mastermind will pick one who will get a chance to participate in the show.
