Kishwer and Suyyash were part of ‘Bigg Boss 9’, which had the tagline ‘Double Trouble’. Kishwer was considered as one of the most popular contestants of her season. She sacrificed her spot for her ‘brother’ Prince Narula during the ‘Ticket To Finale Task’. Although, she couldn’t lift the winner’s trophy, she took home a cash prize of Rs 15 lakh.
The ‘Kasautii Zindagii Kay’ actress was pitted against Prince in the task; however she decided to walk away with the money. Prince became the first contestant to reach the finale of ‘Bigg Boss 9’.

Keith Sequeira and Rochelle Rao
Adding a twist in tale, the makers of the show roped in another real-life couple for ‘Bigg Boss 9’. We are talking about Keith and Rochelle. Rochelle finished as the third-runner up of the ninth season of ‘Bigg Boss’ while Keith made it to top five. Sequeira had to leave the show midway due to some family emergency. He made a return to the show after two weeks and was evicted a few days before the grand finale.
The popular couple got hitched in March 2018 in an intimate ceremony, which was attended by only family members and close friends. Pictures from their beach wedding went viral on social media.
Rajeev Paul and Delnaaz Irani, who separated after 14 years of marriage, were part of ‘Bigg Boss 6’. Rajeev tried his best to woo back Delnaaz but to no avail.
