Contrary to popular speculation, Karthik pipped frontrunners Vinay Gowda and Sangeetha Sringeri
Part 2 of the grand finale of Bigg Boss Kannada 10 has just begun, but predictions about the winner, given that the show is not live and was shot earlier too, are doing the rounds on social media. Multiple dedicated Bigg Boss Kannada trackers and fans have been posting that the winner of Bigg Boss Kannada 10 is actor Karthik Mahesh.
Last evening, during the first part of the grand finale, Comedy Khiladigalu fame Tukali fame was eliminated, leaving five finalists heading into the last stretch of the reality show. Shooting for the show was held earlier today, and sources from the showrunners have, apparently, indicated that the road to the title was that strong contender Vinay Gowda was the first to be evicted on Day 2.
Vinay was apparently followed by Sangeetha Sringeri and Varthur Santhosh, leaving Karthik and Drone Pratap in the top 2 positions. While audiences have been saying that Karthik had it in him to spring a surprise heading into the finale, Pratap’s top 2 finish was unexpected.
When news of the Bigg Boss Kannada 10 results began trickling in, the buzz on social media was that the showrunners had been paying attention to what was being said on platforms like Twitter and Instagram, for instance. Several audiences had voiced their displeasure with the handling of the show and said that it felt scripted.
For several weeks, the buzz was that Sangeetha Sringeri would win the title as the second-ever female winner since Season 3’s Shruthi Krishna. Sangeetha and Vinay were thought to be the top two contenders, which was cemented after last week’s Varada Kathe with Kiccha, when both of them received Kichchana Chappale for their performance during the entire season of the show.
Well, it looks like the showrunners have been paying attention to the narrative on social media and ensured that the final result is not entirely unexpected, but not what most thought would play out. Some audiences still reckon that the choice of winner still makes sense, as the general perception is that the showrunners fix a contestant who will be a potential judge, anchor on reality shows or actor on their serials, so in that sense, Karthik makes sense.
