Bigg Boss 15 - Umar Riaz.

Umar Riaz is among one of the most popular contestants on Bigg Boss 15. Even though he is currently under eviction stress thanks to Salman Khan’s warning on the Weekend Ka Vaar episode, that has not affected Umar’s popularity among his fans. In fact, the doctor-turned-model has managed to beat even Pratik Sehajpal by becoming the fourth most popular contestant of the week.

Ormax Media released a list of the most popular contestants in the week of January 1-7. Umar made it to the list despite reportedly being evicted from the house on January 9, 2022.

See the full list here:

Of course, the other contestants to remain on the list are Tejasswi Prakash, Karan Kundrra, Shamita Shetty and Pratik. These names have remained constant as the most popular Bigg Boss 15 contestants for months in a row now.

Tejasswi, Karan and Shamita, especially, have been hogging the first three positions at least 80% of the times over the past few months. Currently, Tejasswi is leading the roost as the most popular contestant, followed by Karan and Shamita.

Interestingly, Tejasswi and Karan are also a couple and the only couple in the house. They happened to once again come under Salman Khan’s scanner after the host pointed out how Karan never came to support his girlfriend even during the Ticket To Finale task. “Take a fucking stand, be a fucking man,” Salman was heard telling Karan very recently.

Shamita and Tejasswi, on the other hand, have constantly been competing with each other on some level. Even though the women have not outrightly accepted doing so, they have accepted having differences and being at loggerheads with each other due to some reason.

It remains to be seen whether Umar will actually get evicted on January 9. If so, then who do you think will replace him in the most popular Bigg Boss 15 contestants’ list?
