The Battle Of Four
Now the competition is between Narendra Babu Sharma, Arun Sagar, Vijay Raghavendra and Nikita Thukral. All four have played well and have won the hearts of the audience.
Narendra Babu Sharma
People love Narendra Babu Sharma's innocent nature. His naughty yelling and his sense of humour have impressed them. He enjoys the support of family audience and his followers. As a result, despite getting votes for the elimination on numerous occasions from the inmates, he has been saved by audience.
Arun Sagar is the only contestant, who has been actively participating in all the tasks given by Bigg Boss. His energetic approach, his multifaceted talent and his good comedy timings make him a strong contender.
Vijay Raghavendra is billed as the most sincere and good human being in the Bigg Boss house. His kind nature and his participation in all the tasks have impressed female audience. Especially, his weeping in the house thinking about his family has become a big hit among woman audience. But what turned out to be plus seems to be minus, as there are some section of audience who think that he is a boring candidate to some extent.
Nikita Thukral, in spite of being in fights with Chandrika on a regular basis, has survived till the last with her strong character. Indeed, she has played the game well and has silenced her critics, who tried to bring her down by pointing her inability to speak Kannada fluently, by winning people's crucial votes.
The game is perfectly balanced for the viewers to choose one among the four contestants. The winner will walk out with Rs 50 lakhs.
Who will win Bigg Boss 1? You will have to wait for a day to get this revealed.
