Bigg Boss 5 has come down to the last 5 finalists.
Samir Soni was voted off last season at the 13th week. His appeal also greatly rested on the prime time TV audience he had.
Dolly Bindra was the sole force in the house last season who picked the most fights. But maybe such aggression works - for Dolly Bindra was one of the final four.
The Great Khali was one of the 4 finalists last season. This season we did not find a counterpart this season. If Yamamotoyama had stayed on - perhaps then...
Last season winner Shweta Tiwari scored the faithful housewives' votes. The ones she got for her soap serials.
Her counterpart Juhi Parmar is probably hoping for the same this season. But we can never be too sure.
Compared to Samir Soni - Amar Upadhyay in Season 5 has created more furor. Accused of being 'too touchy feely' with some of the women in the house - Amar has still managed to hold on till the finals. However - he too is hoping for votes from his 'Mihir Virani' fans.
Touted as the Salman Khan favourite last season - Ashmit with all his chemistry with Sara and Veena Malik was one of the finalists.
This season Mahek Chahal has been called the Salman favourite. Back on the show as a wild card entry - Mahek has a very strong chance of winning - as say the audience response. Though one must remember that a wild card entry has never won Bigg Boss till date.
Sky has been called the Dolly Bindra of this season. He's one contestant who has fought with every house mate except Pooja Bedi, Juhi and Sunny. Do we spot a pattern here?
MTV VJ Siddharth Bharadwaj is another strong contender for the big prize. We could not find someone to compare him to from the last season - but a veteran for reality shows (He won Season 2 of Splitsvilla) - Sid could jolly well keep his hopes up.
