Bigg Boss undoubtedly is one of the most loved Indian reality show and every year even before the commencement of the season, the show tops the headlines. Arguments, fights, relationships, tasks, planning and plotting go in correlation with the show. Every season brings new contestants, theme, controversies and of course new winners.
But apart from winners, certain contestants manage to etch a long lasting impression on the audiences' mind every season. We have curated a list of such contestants who were not essentially winners of the show but they did manage to win minds and hearts in some cases.
Let’s have a look:
Season 12- Sreesanth Nair
Famous cricketer, Sreesanth who was allegedly booked under a bribe case entered the BB 12 house and revealed his angry and emotional side to the audience during his stint. Though he wanted to run away from the house, he managed to stay till the end. His sibling like equation with Dipika Kakar Ibrahim was one of the talked about point when the show was on air.
Season 11- Hina Khan
A household name, isn’t she? Hina took the show to another level by being fashionable and graceful throughout. Her dressing was highly appreciated. Khan’s fights with Shilpa and her friendship with Priyank and Luv is still remembered.
Season 10- Priyanka Jagga
She entered the house as a commoner, but was removed from the show by host Salman Khan on the account of misbehaviour and distasteful comments, that went unstoppable. Her attitude towards the show and fellow contestants was downright demeaning and hence, she was snubbed by the audience.
Season 09- Kishwer Merchant
Ardent fans of BB 09 will never forget the sacrifice made by Kishwer to save Prince Narula who later emerged as the winner of the season. Kishwer’s stand on important issues and the ability to perform tasks with ease was highly appreciated by the audience.
Season 08- Karishma Tanna
Do you remember, ‘Main mera makeup nahi dungi?’...
Well, Karishma Tanna was a strong contender of BB 08 and emerged as a runner up of that season but she made a difference by considering her makeup over the luxury budget. Karishma’s fight with Gautam Gulati on the first day of the first task was one such memorable moment of that season. Also, Karishma was dating co-contestant Upen Patel back then.
Season 07- Ajaz Khan
Even though he entered as a wild-card, Ajaz grabbed eyeballs in a very short span due to his funny dialogues. ‘Badi Badi Baatein Vada Pav Khatein’, ‘Ek Number’ became dialogues of the seasons. His healthy flirting with Gauahar Khan too tickled funny bones of the masses.
Season 06- Imam Siddique
Imam was a wildcard contestant and the runner up of Season 6. Can we forget the entire drama that he did in the padosi house against fellow contestants Aashka Goradia and Nirahua? Certainly, we cannot!
Season 05- Pooja Misrra
‘Talk to my hand’ Wasn’t it the dialogue of that season? Pooja’s fights with the inmates created a huge ruckus in the house. Her attitude and personality became a talk of the town.
Season 04- Dolly Bindra
Dolly is one of the most entertaining contestants in the entire legacy of the show. Her fights, laughter and drama made her popular. ‘Baap pe maat jaana’, her most used sentence grabbed many eyeballs.
Season 03- Kamal R Khan (KRK)
KRK rose to fame with BB 03, his baseless arguments, distasteful comments and self-boasting didn’t gel well with the audience and at a later stage, he was removed from the show.
Season 02- Sambhavana Seth
Her aggressive nature, emotional side and daring personality put her in limelight in the show. Besides that, Sambhavana performed all the tasks with an utmost dedication.
Season 01- Rakhi Sawant
Rakhi was a part of the very first instalment of the show; her funny, bold, dramatic and emotional side became a talk of that season.
P.S. : The 13th edition of the popular show is approaching and it has already started creating a buzz. With actor Salman Khan hosting the show, Bigg Boss has managed to grab the top ratings. Zareen Khan, Karan Patel, Ashish Sharma, Ankita Lokhande, Devoleena Bhattacharjee are a few celebrity names that have popped for this season. Also, there is also a talk that BB 13 will have a horror theme and it's set will be located in Goregaon instead of Lonavala this time.
