Who will be the first contestant on Bigg Boss 11?(Twitter)

In a first since the show began a decade ago, Bigg Boss has decided to partially reveal the contestants before the day of the premiere. The Salman Khan-hosted show’s Twitter handle posted a picture of who they claim is the first contestant on the show and asked fans to figure out who she is.

“Dekhiye Bigg Boss 11 ka live episode from the set! All you have to do is to guess the name of this gorgeous contestant. #BBGuessList,” the post read. In the mysterious photo, one could see only a woman’s eye.

However, even with just an eye as clue, the show’s fans managed to figure out who she is. Some speculated that it must be Turkish author Betül Eldoğan as she used the same picture on her book, Sen Benimsin.

But there is another, more probable contender. A fan found out the same picture from a photoshoot of English model Halima Matlub whose picture was used on the book cover of Sen Benimsin.

A YouTube video attached in the same tweet, shows more pictures from the same shoot.

From what we could find through an unverified Facebook page in her name, Halima got married recently and has posted several pictures from the wedding.

It is likely the Bigg Boss Twitter page will post more clues on the rest of the contestants as well before the show stars airing the new season in October.

Salman Khan, who will host the show again this year, has shot for several promos of the show. The new season has ‘neighbours’ as its theme.

Just like last year, this year we will see commoner contestants rubbing shoulders with celebrities. The winner last year was a commoner contestant, Manveer Gurjar.
