Bigg Boss 9 will get its winner on Saturday night from among the four finalists -- Prince Narula, Mandana Karimi, Rishabh Sinha and Rochelle Rao. We still have to wait a few hours before the final announcement is made but HT readers have had their say.
We ran a poll asking you, our readers, who will win the Rs 35 lakh prize today and the winner is… Prince Narula!
To be fair, the best contestants from the ongoing reality TV show, Bigg Boss 9, were out of the house before finale kicked in. Be it Kishwar’s tricky elimination or Priya Malik being voted out, both announcements were shocking to say the least. Among the remaining contestants, Prince Narula and Rishabh Sinha were the clear favourites.
In the poll, Prince emerged the winner with 2212 votes out of 5407 polled. Rishabh and Mandana followed with 1418 and 1123 votes respectively. Rochelle ended up as the distant fourth with only 654 votes.
If we take a close look at the past seasons of Bigg Boss, the winner has always been a contestant who is loud, fights unapologetically for his/her own good and entertains the audience with all sorts of antics. Prince, with his Casanova image and propensity for fights, has kept the audience entertained this time round. His masterstroke was persuading Kishwar Merchant, his rakhi sister, to abandon the show for his benefit.
Rishabh and Mandana Karimi follow closely with their off-and-on game where they are visible at times and go into hibernation at others.
Even Kishwar Merchant, Suyyash Rai, Priya Malik and Yuvika Choudhary said after their evictions that they want Prince to win the game.
