So we just live tweeted the very first episode of Bigg Boss 8. The season sure looks promising so far and we don’t think they’ll disappoint in the drama department.

This season’s Bigg Boss has aviation as theme and we hear that the contestants will be divided in Business Class and Economy Class. There’s also a trio called Secret Society that has left us rather intrigued. One of the three, we are sure, is Deepshikha. More about that later…

So here you go, meet your inmates!

1. Karishma Tanna

Karishma Tanna

Claim to fame : Fairly successful TV actress, who broke into the scene with Kyunki Saans Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thhi, is definitely one of the hotter women on the tube. She recently made her Bollywood debut with Grand Masti and is gearing up for her upcoming film Tina & Lolo with Sunny Leone.

Best line of the night : “Mental tayyiyaari unhe karni padegi main aa gayi hoon toh!” when asked if she has prepared herself mentally for Bigg Boss.

Potential for drama : Seems fairly sorted so far. Will provide enough eye candy in the house and we don’t think she’d be able to stay away from the cat fight scene for too long.

2. Sonali Raut

Claim To Fame : Grabbed headlines for her see through saree act, la Satyam Shivam Sunderam, in Himesh Reshamiya’s Xpose.

Best line of the night : “Beware I am coming!”

Potential for drama : She sure seems like someone who’ll get bitchy soon and provide enough TRPs for the show. Also, high on the eye candy department.

3. Arya Babbar

Claim to fame : Raj Babbar’s son and has featured in tid bit roles in Bollywood films.

Best line of the night : “Meri maa bahu ki aas lagaye baithi hai Bigg Boss se”

Potential for drama : Seems too cheesy for our liking. Also, how undesirable do you have to be to come to Bigg Boss for bahu.


4. Upen Patel

Claim to fame : A very successful model and has appeared in some Bollywood movies too. He’ll soon be seen in Vikram starrer I.

Best line of the night : “Koi ladki swimming karna chahe aur swimsuit na ho toh main unke liye swimsuit laya hoon.”


Potential for drama : We caught up with the model right before his entry in the house and he told us that he’s single and ready to mingle. Also, the upcoming promo of the show gave us a sneak peek into moments between Upen and Sukirti Kandpal. Looks like Bigg Boss has played cupid already!

5. Sushant Divgikar

Claim to fame : Winner of Mr gay India 2014

Best line of the night : “Kapde aur chhote hote jaenge!”

Potential for drama : OMG! LOTS!

6. Diandra Soares

Claim to fame : A successful model and just absolutely fabulous!

Best line of the night : *Diandra giggles*

Potential for drama : The babe clearly comes with her giggle pills. The quirkiness will be fun to watch, we think. Also, we are really digging her rainbow hair colour!

7. Minissha Lamba

Claim to fame : Bollywood actress. It’s been a while since her mausam has been awesome.

Best line of the night : “Turbulence hone wala hai aage. Kursi ki peti thaam k chalna padega”

Potential for drama : She seems rather vanilla right now. Who know? She may just surprise us!

8. Praneet Bhatt

Claim to fame : Plays Shakuni in Mahabharat.

Best line of the night : *Salman Khan’s fanboy moment*

Potential for drama : We don’t know drama yet, but the dude gave us the best vibe out of all the others so far. He also went in promising to provide entertainment. We wonder what he meant.

9.Sukirti Kandpal

Claim to fame : TV actress. Last seen on Life Ok’s Kaisa Yeh Ishq Hai Ajab Sa Risk Hai

Best line of the night : “Sukeeeerti! Not Sukriti!”

Potential for drama : Enough. She introduced herself as someone who is “selective” in the people she chooses to be around. Well, she clearly hasn’t watched any of the previous Bigg Boss episodes. Personal space, who?

Also, she was seen bonding well with Upen, which is strange because she has always gone on record to accept her non single status. This should be fun.

10. Natasa Stankovic

Claim to fame : Siberian babe who was last seen in an item number with Ajay Devgn in Prakash Jha’s Satyagraha.

Best line of the night : When she sang Teri Meri from Bodyguard.

Potential from drama : Doesn’t seem too interesting as of now. We’re putting her in the Minissha category of vanilla for now!

11. Soni Singh

Claim to fame : Soni, a known name in television industry was last seen in Saraswatichandra as a vamp.

Best line of the night : “Main bilkul bhi vampish nahi hoon real life mein”

Potential for drama : She seems like an interesting character. We are counting on her for a catfight soon.

12. gautam gulati

Claim to fame : Television actor. Last seen on Diya Aur Baati Hum.

Best line of the night : Nah. He barely said any lines for one of them to be the best.

Potential for drama : We are expecting a love angle soon. He looks good but hasn’t managed to impress us just yet.
