Bigg Boss Season 2, the Indian version of Big Brother, comes with it's unique twists this year thus making it bigger and better.
This year's housemates are an interesting bunch of people including newsmakers, item girl, politicians, singer, comedian and a non-celebrity.
The beginning of the show itself was gripping with the dramatic exit of former Big Brother housemate, Jade Goody. The Brit had to leave the show after she was diagnosed with cervical cancer.
So, that leaves us with 13 other hopefuls with an eye on the prize. Who will it be?
To make your task easier, here are the 13 hopefuls starting with Monica Bedi, an actress and underworld Don Abu Salem's girlfriend. You may have also seen her in Surakshaa, Ashique Mastaane, Pyar Ishq aur Mohabbat, Jaanam Samjha Karo and Jodi No. 1.
It was alleged that Abu Salem used his influence in Bollywood to get her acting roles in Bollywood productions. Once Abu was on the run she joined him and lived abroad for many years.
They both were arrested in Portugal in 2002 and extradited to India after a long legal battle. In 2007 she was released from the Hyderabad Jail.
Now, she is hoping to make a comeback to films and claimed to be getting offers from both Bollywood and the Telugu film industry.
