New Delhi: Bigg Boss has gained a lot of popularity ever since its first season went on air. Since then, the show has successfully gone through eight seasons and now the ninth season is all set to be launched.

The anticipation level for Bigg Boss 9 was high right from the moment it was announced. However, when Salman Khan confirmed hosting the 9th season of the show, it was like the cherry on top of the cake.

Although Salman Khan had stated last season that he might not be hosting Bigg Boss 9, his comeback to the show has added to the excitement.

So far, there has been a lot of speculation about the contestants of Bigg Boss 9. From Sant Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh to controversial self-styled godwoman Radhe Maa to porn star Mia Khalifa, several names were rumoured to be participating in BB9.

However, the rumours were later proved false. But it seems that your wait for the final list of contestants is over.
