Bigg Boss 10 kicked off tonight with a glitzy premiere night, and host Salman Khan introduced us to the 15 contestants that we’ll be seeing on our TV screens every night for the coming months. This is the first season where celebrities are joined by “regular people” – giving us even more potential for drama.

In case you missed the first episode – or just want to relive it – here are the 15 contestants and their best moments:

Om Swami

Quite likely to be the most entertaining contestant on the show. He offered to set Salman up with a bride pretty much the minute he entered.

Moment of the night: When he did a pooja before entering the house so he could get rid of the “negative energy.” Like that’s going to help…

Lopamudra Raut

Lopamudra represented India at the Miss United Continents 2016 pageant and was crowned 2nd runner-up.

Moment of the night: When a fellow contestant (Manveer; meet him below) asked her whether she’d wear her gown to his village, she said, “Yeh? Yeh designer hai. Ek baar pehen ke chhod do.”

Manveer Gurjar

Nitibha worked at Google up to 2 hours before her entry on Bigg Boss, but quit for the show. She sang Main Hoon Hero Tera with Salman on stage.

Moment of the night: When she said her parents would be very happy if she found marriage prospects through the house. Giiiirl, no. If she did, I’d be concerned.

Rohan Mehra

This cutie from Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai has also been a part of TV shows like Bade Achche Lagte Hai, Gumrah and Webbed 2.

Moment of the night: When one of the “aam aadmi” contestants (Lokesh; meet her below) said that celebrities couldn’t do things on their own, like wear a sari, and VJ Bani shut her up by winning in a sari-wearing competition.

Lokesh Kumari Sharma

She’s also known as “Lovy” (make of that what you will) and said that celebrities are full of drama – except that she sounds more dramatic than most other celebrities.

Moment of the night: When she kept flipping her hair constantly. Willing to bet that she has a crick in her neck.

Karan Mehra

She was married to Yuvraj Singh‘s brother at the age of 23 for less than 4 months, but apparently had a terrible marriage and had to leave. (Psst – they never actually name Yuvraj on the show; they just say “cricketer’s brother.”)

Moment of the night: When she said she’s still waiting for her divorce to be finalised – all she wants is freedom, “not even a single rupee” from the family.

Manoj Punjabi

The big twist…

In case you were wondering what the big twist of the season is, then here you go: The “regular” contestants have been made the masters in this house, while the celebrities have been made their servants. We’ll have to see exactly how this plays out in the coming days, but for now what we do know is that each master gets his own bed, while the servants will all sleep in one big bed. Hmm!

What are your expectations from Bigg Boss 10?
