So, the four Bigg Boss Kannada OTT finalists who will now compete in the ninth season of Bigg Boss Kannada that’s coming to Colors Kannada next week, have been announced. Host Sudeep announced Aryavardhan Guruji, Roopesh Shetty, Rakesh Adiga and Sanya Iyer as the four lucky ones who have been voted in and given a chance to be in the house for another 100 days.
But the question then was, who among them was the topper after all, who would walk away with the Rs 5 lakh prize money. While all-round entertainer Rakesh Adiga was expected to walk away with the prize, Roopesh, who was a close second turned out to be the actual winner. Roopesh was adjudged the most popular contestants.
“In the entire season, I was nominated for elimination only once, which was upsetting. But now my confidence is on another level. The other three finalists are also deserving candidates for the topper position,” said Roopesh.
Bigg Boss Kannada Season 9 will kick off on September 24 at 6 pm. Beside the four contestants from the Bigg Boss Kannada OTT season, BBK 9 will also have a bunch of veterans, as in, former participants from earlier seasons of the reality show. The split is that of the 18 contestants heading to the TV show, nine will be former participants, while the other 9 will be newbies.
According to sources, the four Bigg Boss Kannada OTT winners were quickly shifted to a hotel by the showrunners and not allowed to return home for a quick break before heading into the 100-day TV season. Interestingly, Roopesh Shetty and Sanya Iyer, who forged a close ‘friendship’ during their six week stay in the house, during which it was rumoured that there was a romantic attraction between the duo, are now returning to the house with an already established rapport.
