Top two and winner
Abhishek Kumar and Munawar Faruqui battled it out for the trophy. They were the last remaining contestants in the house after Mannara’s eviction from the Salman Khan-hosted show. The host picked up Munawar’s hand and named MC Stan, as a joke that he was the winner of Bigg Boss 16. After teasing both Abhishek and Munawar, Salman announced that the latter has won the show. Apart from the trophy, Munawar won Rs. 50 lakhs prize money and Hyundai Creta.
Munawar has a fanbase that is one of the highest. It is at par with MC Stan’s fans. Munawar’s fans call them Munawar Ki Janta and are majorly responsible for him winning the show. It is to be noted that Munawar is also the winner of another reality show, the Kangana Ranaut-hosted and Ekta Kapoor produced Lock Upp season 1.
Mannara Chopra, Munawar Faruqui and Abhishek Kumar made it to top three. This happened after Arun Mashetty and Mannara Chopra got evicted from the show.
After Vicky Jain’s eviction from Bigg Boss 17, Ankita Lokhande, Munawar Faruqui, Mannara Chopra, Abhishek Kumar and Arun Mashetty were among the top five finalists. A week before, Isha Malviya and Ayesha Khan were evicted in double eliminations.
