Earlier, the host of the show, Salman Khan had already informed about the surprise mid-week eviction. And one from the top five finalists - Rishabh Sinha, Keith Sequeira, Rochelle Rao, Prince Narula and Mandana Karimi, would be leaving the house. Voting lines were open for 24 hours only.

Mid week eviction: Keith Sequira eliminated! #BiggBoss9 #KeithSequiera @keithsequeira
It was nice seeing how calm, balanced, mature n supr sweet my teenage crush is. That's #KeithSequiera. Well done Keith! 😊💜
According to the sources, Prince Narula received the maximum votes. After Prince, it was Mandana, Rishabh and Rochelle, who received a good number of votes. It is quite shocking that one of the strong contestants, Keith, whom we thought would make it to finale, will be evicted from the house, through audiences' vote!
From the beginning Keith has been strong, calm and has played smartly. These qualities won the audiences as well as inmates' hearts. Due to his brother's death, Keith had to leave the show midway, but was back on the show after three weeks. By then, there was lot of changes and the game had totally changed.
Although Keith tried to adjust to the new environment (after wild-card entries) and tried to play his game, looks like his non-confrontational nature was not liked by the audiences. Salman had indicated the same, and the ex-contestant Yuvika Chaudhary, who entered the show last night, told him that people are not getting to see him more and he should be more, entertaining.
It is quite upsetting that Keith will be leaving the show just before three days of the Grand finale. We thought, it would be either Rishabh, Rochelle or Mandana leaving the show.
Now, the remaining four contestants - Mandana, Rochelle, Rishabh and Prince will be competing for the Bigg Boss 9 trophy. (Click on the slides to read the tweets)
