After a rather dull season that failed to garner the limelight, your favourite show, Bigg Boss, is back with a bang. Just like the previous seasons, the show is being hosted by none other than Salman Khan. 13 celebrities, 93 cameras and 100 days inside the Bigg Boss house! Are you guys ready to experience the wildest roller-coaster ride ever?
The new season is here with a number of exciting twists that will slowly unfold as the show moves ahead. The most significant of them is that it’s an all-celebrity lineup this time, with no commoners inside the house.
Bigg Boss house opened its door to all the celebrity contestants on 29 September 2019 flagging off the new ‘express’ season. Even before the contestants could set their foot inside the house, they were asked to perform certain tasks which helped the host to assign household duties to them. What took everyone by surprise was the ‘Best Friends Forever’ task, wherein, the contestants were paired up to share beds inside the house, based on the bands that the female contestants chose. The new season is all about making strong connections and the first finale of the show is said to happen in its fourth week.
To make it easier to understand for those who aren’t aware of this season’s format, there are 13 contestants inside the Bigg Boss 13 house, which includes 5 male celebrities and 8 female celebrities. The contestants nominate their fellow contestants for eviction at the beginning of each week and the nominated contestants remain in the danger zone until one of them is evicted at the weekend.

Bigg Boss 13: Contestants List
Bigg Boss 13 houses 13 names from the entertainment world. This season, the contestant’s list is dominated by some of the popular TV faces. Besides the 13 celebrity contestants, the Bollywood actress, Ameesha Patel is also seen in the show. Ameesha, who is the ‘Malkin of the House,’ is seen in a glamorous avatar.
Here is a list of all the contestants of Bigg Boss 13.
The ‘Dil Se Dil Tak’ actress is locked inside the house with her co-star, Siddharth Shukla. Rashami who started her career with the B-grade Bhojpuri films rose to fame with the popular TV serial “Uttaran.” She is known for her bubbly and childlike nature but she is also someone who won’t take things lying down. A popular face of Colors TV, Rashami, will be a contestant to look out for in the Bigg Boss 13.
A popular television actor who is known more for his off-screen tantrums than his acting skills. The actor started his career as a model and made a mark with the shows like “Balika Vadhu” and “Dil Se Dil Tak.” He has also proved his acting skills in the Bollywood film “Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania” opposite Alia Bhatt and Varun Dhawan. The 13th edition of the game reality show will see Siddharth don the image of an eligible bachelor, and it would be interesting to see whose attention he grabs.
Punjabi model, singer, and actress, Shehnaaz Gill is a controversial name in the Punjabi Music Industry. The singer has many singles under her name. She is quite a diva and will surely raise the glamour quotient in the house. For Shehnaaz, Bigg Boss might prove to be a platform for her to step into Bollywood.
Splitsvilla 5 winner and television actor, Paras Chhabra is the next one on the list. Known for being the ex-boyfriend of the TV actress, Sara Khan, Paras has worked in the TV serials like “Badho Bahu” and “Vighnaharta Ganesh.” With a reality show win already in his coffer, the actor is sure to have a confident start on Bigg Boss. He is currently in a relationship with the actress, Akanksha Puri.
Devoleena is an elegant beauty who hails from Assam. She received overnight success after replacing ‘Gia Manek’ in Star Plus’ popular drama “Saath Nibhaana Saathiya.” Known for her arrogance and being temperamental on the sets, she is a perfect example of ‘Bahu Bani Babe.’ Since the two popular television bahus, Shilpa Shinde and Dipika Kakar, have already lifted the winner’s trophy earlier, so by taking into the account of pattern, Devoleena has a strong chance to lift the trophy this year.
Every season, the makers of the show try to include a Bollywood face in the house and this time it’s the original “Saki Saki” girl, Koena Mitra. The actress who started her career as a supermodel went on to star in films like “Ek Khiladi Ek Haseena,” “Insan,” and “Apna Sapna Money Money.” The dusky beauty is quite level-headed and given her bold personality, there are high hopes from her.
After receiving many offers from the makers of Bigg Boss, Dalljiet has finally given her nod to be on the reality show. The actress made her acting debut ‘Manshaa’ but it was ‘Iss Pyaar Ko Kya Naam Doon?’ that gave her career the required boost. Having worked in the TV serials like “Qayamat Ki Raat,” “Boss: Baap of Special Services” and “Guddan Tumse Na Ho Payega,” Dalljiet has managed to build a strong fanbase for herself.
A scriptwriter by profession, Siddharth Dey, is the first one to enter the show from the writing background. Interestingly, he has penned the scripts of the first two episodes of Bigg Boss season 1. The writer has worked for many big names of Bollywood including Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra and Ayushmann Khurrana. His networking and writing skills helped him get a place in the house but it would be interesting to see how he manages to survive in this non-scripted reality show.
Arti Singh, the actress who is popular for being the sister of the popular comedian, Krushna Abhishek, has entered the house of Bigg Boss 13 to establish an identity of her own. She has to her credit shows like “Parichay,” “Uttaran,” and “Waaris.” She is said to have a chilled out personality but does not hesitate to raise her voice where things go wrong. Will this characteristic of her, help her lift the trophy this time?
A popular face in the modelling industry, Asim Riaz is one of the eye candies of this season. He has been a part of numerous television commercials. He is sure to bring the hotness quotient in the house by flaunting his chiselled body.
Abu Malik, the younger brother of Anu Malik is also a part of the show. He is a music composer and owns a business of organising live shows in India. He has written a book titled “Rantings of a Mad Man,” which is a compilation of his WhatsApp group chats. It would be interesting to see if Abu will manage to win the hearts of the public with his witty humour.
The TV actress who was seen in the shows like Yaro Ka Tashan, Naagin, and Kundali Bhagya is also locked inside the BB house. She has been a part of many Punjabi music videos. She is a popular Tik-Tok star. The outspoken diva is all ready to add glitter to the house.

Wild Card Contestants
A businessman, social activist, and political analyst, Tehseen Poonawalla, is known for articulating his views on social media and news shows. The businessman has created a buzz on social media ever since he was introduced by Salman Khan as a wild card entry in the show. There are speculations that he has become one of the highest-paid contestants of the season, leaving behind Rashami Desai. As he arrived on the sets of the reality show, the activist was sure that he has entered the show only to win and won’t go home without a trophy. Well, we liked his confidence!
He is a YouTuber and a popular TikTok personality. Social Media’s most favourite meme material, Hindustani Bhau is fondly called the “Pehli Fursat” guy after his famous dialogue “Pehli Fursat Mein Nikal.” Well, the audience has loved him for his memes and it would be interesting to find out if he continues to grab the love of audience even inside the house of Bigg Boss 13.
The Bhojpuri actor and singer, Khesari Lal Yadav, is also one of the wild card entries in the show. The actor rose to fame with the 2012 film “Saajan Chale Sasural.”
The ‘Kanta Laga Girl’ as we know her, is the fourth wild card entry in the show. The stunning diva is known to be opinionated and calls a spade a spade.
The model and actor who is rumoured to be dating the diva, Rashami Desai, has entered the house of Bigg Boss 13 as a wild card contestants. With the rumours of their wedding inside the BB house rife, it would be interesting to see if the rumours turn into reality or not.
Himanshi Khurana, a Punjabi singer, actress, and model, is the latest entry in Bigg Boss 13. The actress was previously in a feud with the BB 13 contestant Shehnaaz Kaur Gill. With Himanshi’s entry into the house, it would be interesting to see how things change for Shehnaaz, who is one of the most loved contestants in Bigg Boss 13.
Vishal Aditya is the seventh and the latest wild card entry in the show. The actor rose to fame by portraying the role of Lakhan Thakur in Begusarai. He was one of the most controversial contestants on the dance reality show “Nach Baliye 9.”
Soon after the actor Vishal Aditya Singh entered the house of Bigg Boss, his ex-girlfriend, Madhurima, too, followed the suit. Madhurima entered the house of Bigg Boss 13 as a wild card contestant. Ask her if she has been approached by the makers because of her acrimonious equation with ex-beau, Vishal, and she is quick to reply, “I am entering the house for myself, and not for Vishal. I have moved on.” It would be interesting to see how things go for Vishal and Madhurima while inside the Bigg Boss house.
