Salman Khan's high on drama reality show premiered last night but we aren't too happy with the contestants who've entered the house...
Salman Khan's Bigg Boss 9 has commenced and the drama inside the house has already started. From Roopal Tyagi bitching about her ex Ankit Gera to Prince Narula plotting his revenge against those who rejected him, we cannot wait to see the first episode of Salman's show tonight!
But we still feel that Bigg Boss 9 could have had a more interesting mix of people. Here's why...
# Random "celebrities"
Did you hear of Arvind Vegda before last night? Did you even recall where you had seen Yuvika Chaudhary before? Did you instantly recognise Keith Sequiera? Us neither. Barring a few people like Aman Verma, Kishwer Merchant and Prince Narula, most of the Bigg Boss 9 contestant have little to no recall value. You would have had a hard time placing them if you hadn't run a Google search on them. In the previous seasons contestants like Rahul Roy, Amar Upadhyay, Delnaaz Paul, Upen Patel etc were known faces and definitely more popular so they found an instant connect with the viewers unlike some of this season's contestants.
# Not the right mix in terms of age-groups
Bigg Boss has always had an interesting mix of people from all age groups inside the house. Last year, Puneet Issar was the father figure inside the house. From young to middle-aged to old, Bigg Boss has always brought in a variety of contestants to balance out the emotional experience. But this time the contestants are more of less from the same age group. Wonder if that is deliberately done.
# No LGBT contestants this year
Every year contestants from the LGBT community have played the game inside the house and emerged as strong contenders. Bigg Boss contestants like Imaam Siddiqui, Sushant Digvikar, Bobby Darling and Rohit Verma have not only contributed to the TRPs with their presence but also been tough contenders for the winner's title in the past seasons. This year we don't have a contender from the LGBT community.
We are not writing off the contestants of this season because there will obviously be lots of drama to ensue from tonight. Let's see the drama, masala and masti that Bigg Boss nau will offer this time!
