12 Bigg Boss Contestants and Their Journey So Far

Have you ever experienced ‘Jannat Ka Wow’ and ‘Jahanum Ka Aao’ visually? Bigg Boss 7 is the perfect show to take you around the heaven and the hell virtually, with its new theme for the season. The theme for Bigg Boss 7 is “Hell and Heaven” where half of the inmates were thrown in the hell, to experience the hardships of life and half were put in heaven, to have a comfortable and luxurious stay. This theme has added more drama into the show as many consider this to be biased towards heaven mates because hell mates face a lot of torture, not just physically but in terms of rights as well.


No hell mate got the right to vote in the last two weeks. Moreover, all the heaven mates were eligible to vote and that too only amongst hell mates. 4 weeks have passed, and 4 contestants have already got eliminated from the show- Hazel, Rajat, Anita, and Ratan. 12 contestants are left in the house that are doing their best to catch the attention of the audience towards them, by being nasty or shedding tears as their ultimate motto is to capture the trophy. Some have even got indulged in the romantic affairs, to turn the Bigg Boss camera towards them. Today, I have done the detailed analysis of these Bigg Boss contestants and their journey on the show in the past 4 weeks.

#1- Andy


To describe Andy in just three words, I would say that he is extremely talented, fashionable, and a little mysterious. Although he sounds juvenile from his talks sometimes, but no one actually knows what’s going on in his mind? Andy has successfully hosted many reality shows like Get Gorgeous and Beauty and the Geek. Presently, he is impeccably hosting the show Dare 2 Date on channel V and is quite popular amongst teens. Andy’s timing of speaking his one-liners is simply awesome, and he knows how to shut people’s mouth and that is what I admire him for.

#2- Apurva Agnihotri


Apurva began his journey with Pardes. Though Pardes was a blockbuster flick, Apurva failed to achieve success on the big screen and switched to the small screen. He became immensely popular with his television debut in Jassi Jaisi Koi Nahin, where he played the character of export house owner- Armaan Malik. Both- the show and Apurva got appreciated by critics and viewers for the incredible work. On Bigg Boss, Apurva is playing it very safe. He doesn’t take a stand for anything and anyone, but agrees to whatever people say around. What would you call it- being clever or being coward?

#3- Armaan Kohli


He was officially launched as a solo actor in 1992, by his father Raj Kohli who is a film producer and a director. The movie failed drastically on the box office. Later, his father made few more films to revive his career, but he failed thoroughly.  Eventually, he took a break from the Bollywood. He has now appeared once again on screen, after a gap of 10 years. This time, it is the game of hell and heaven- Bigg Boss. Armaan has been alleged to be the most abusive and arrogant amongst the whole bunch of contestants. He seems to be very aggressive and gets into an argument with anyone who speaks anything against him. He has got nominated almost every week, but he has managed to be in the game by the support of the audience.

#4- Asif Azim


Asif is a Bangladeshi model who has been residing in India since last 9 years. He is a model with great build and physique and is considered as Salman Khan of Bangladesh. Asif appeared on Bigg Boss as a wild card entry and has been quite since his entry on the show. However, he has been alleged by Gauhar and few other inmates to be cheap, but according to me, he is playing it good and he seems to be a decent lad. When Asif got nominated last week; many were thinking that he will move out of the house being the weakest contestants in getting votes in his kitty, but he stunned everyone when he became safe and that too with quite good margin.

#5- Elli Avram


Elli is half Swedish and half German. She has made her Bollywood debut with Mickey Virus, which is yet to go on air. Elli has been amongst those contestants who are quite on the show, and that is why it is assumed that she might get eliminated because of the poor fan following as she is a lesser known face amongst other inmates. She is said to be Salman’s favorite, and it has also been said that she entered the Bigg Boss house only on Salman’s recommendation. Well, I don’t see Elli reaching the finals as there are many other strong contestants in the house than Elli.

#6- Gauhar Khan


Gauhar is a popular Indian VJ, actress, and model. She participated in Femina Miss India 2002 where she stood at fourth position and went on to represent India at Miss International. Gauhar became more popular with her ravishing performance in item numbers like Parda, and Chokra Jawaan. She also gained popularity with the reality show “Khan Sisters”, where she appeared with her elder sister- Nigaar Khan. Till now, Gauhar has been playing the game really well, being the outspoken and vivacious personality. However, she has been misled and misunderstood by many on the show as being arrogant and rude. She has indulged into a romantic relationship with her fellow inmate Kushal.

#7- Kamya Panjabi


Kamya Panjabi is a popular Indian television actress who mostly plays vamp in various shows. She is best known for her role as Sindoora in Banoo Main Teri Dulhann. She is also highly appreciated for her role as Uttara in Maryada: Lekin Kab Tak? Currently, she is creating the magic inside the Bigg Boss house. In the beginning, she faced opposition by a lot of people in the house, but later she won hearts of many and became the captain of the house. What exactly is going inside her mind is really hard to predict at the moment. I hope she plays it fair to be in the good books of inmates and audience, without being a vamp.

#8- Kushal Tandon


Kushal became immensely popular with his role in the show “Ek Hazaron Mein Meri Behena Hai”. Kushal hails from a sophisticated background. He was born in Lucknow, later he moved to The Scindia School in Gwalior, to complete his further education. Kushal always wanted to be a part of the glamour industry, and he stood as a runner-up at the Mr. India contest. It has been reported that Kushal is badly alcoholic, and he has moved to the Bigg Boss house to quit this awful habit of him. However, Kushal is playing it well by not commenting on anyone. By far, he has played the game fairly and decently. Kushal has a good fan following and can reach up to final 5 or 6, but I don’t see him beyond that level. But, he might pull a surprise at the last moment. You never know.

#9- Pratyusha Banerjee


Pratyusha made her debut into the television industry with one of the blockbuster shows- Balika Vadhu, where she was seen playing the role of a mature and grown-up Anandi. The moment Pratyusha quit the show; TRPs fell drastically as people took a time to accept Toral as their new Anandi. Pratyusha has always been in the news for her arrogant and short-tempered attitude. Recently, she broke up with her beau Markand who is also supposed to enter the Bigg Boss house very soon. Pratyusha has been in very good terms with Sara Khan, and some people consider their relationship to be the one beyond friendship. Despite her huge fan following, Pratyusha has failed to gather votes last week and was saved by only few numbers of votes in last week’s eviction. The reason could be fairly simple: she is not judgmental and goes with other inmates’ opinion, especially in the case of Kamya.

#10- Sangram Singh


Sangram is a popular wrestler from India who has represented India internationally and won many medals. He is dating the popular item girl – Payal Rohatgi who had appeared on Bigg Boss earlier. Sangram has been a contestant on Bigg Boss who enjoys each and every situation without getting panic or taking load. It seems that he is enjoying the journey and taking the most out of it, although he is not a strong possibility to win the trophy.

#11- Shilpa Saklani


Although Shilpa has appeared on many television shows but she is best known for her role as Ganga in Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi. After the show went off air, she made a couple of appearances on other shows and got married to Apurva Agnihotri. Both have been leading a successful married life even after 10 years. Duo came into controversy when they were caught in a rave party, in 2012, but decided not to open up in this regard on the show. Shilpa is considered to be the cleverest player of the house as she makes sure that everyone likes her. She is being the most skeptical contestant of the house. Though Shilpa is the cleverest, she doesn’t stand a chance to win the show because she is less popular than other inmates, including her hubby Apurva.

#12- Tanisha Mukherjee


Tanisha is a Bollywood actress and younger sister of Kajol. Tanisha tried her luck into the industry but failed to create the charm that her sister and mother created in the hearts of millions. Tanisha was rumored to be dating an actor- Uday Chopra, but the rumors proved to be wrong when Uday confirmed that he is getting married to Nargis Fakhri.  Tanisha has been appointed as the captain of the Bigg Boss house for two consecutive weeks, and she played her part pretty well. In the last few episodes, she has developed a soft corner for Armaan Kohli and has been dating him (not officially) since then. Well, whether it is a publicity stunt or reality, it will get clear in days to come as the show approaches finale.
