As the controversial show "Bigg Boss 9" is gearing up for the finale, the competition inside the house is getting tougher as none of the remaining contestants want to leave the show at such a crucial stage.

Day 96 of "Bigg Boss 9" started with Bigg Boss introducing another task -- "Imam Ki Adalat"-- wherein Imam Siddique was the judge and the housemates had the last chance to prove themselves as the most deserving contender to enter the finale.

Mandana underwent the trial and apologised for aggressive behaviour throughout the season and not standing up for her co-contestants when they needed her. Prince confessed that he doesn't always make the right decision, but played the game wholeheartedly. 

While Priya Malik maintained that she has been a fair contestant throughout her stint inside the house, Rishabh admitted that he did all for the sake of entertaining viewers.

As soon as the task got over, Priya approached Imam and badmouthed Rochelle Rao and Keith Sequeira saying that the duo has been using the emotional side of the audience to survive inside the game.

Towards the end of the episode, Imam declared that Rishabh and Priya deserve to become the first finalist of the season. He asked the housemates to come to a consensus and choose the one, who will make it directly to the finale. All the inmates agreed that Priya deserves to be the first finalist and not Rishabh.

With Priya declared as first finalist of the season, a lot of confusion have arisen among the viewers as Prince was announced as the first contestant to win the "Ticket to Finale", and hence should be the first finalist instead of Priya. 

But it should be mentioned that host Salman Khan had made it clear on the last weekend episode that Prince has made it to the "Finale week". With this, Prince has to compete against the potential finalists (apart from Priya) on the concluding week of "Bigg Boss 9", in order to reach the top three.

Recently, there were reports that the makers of "Bigg Boss 9" want a wild card contestant to win the show. "There have been talks among the makers of Bigg Boss 9 on how wild card contestant have chances to win the show this year," Business of Cinema quoted a source as saying.

With such rumours, one can't help but wonder if Priya will win "Bigg Boss 9" and become the first wild card contestant, in the history of the controversial show, to take the trophy home.
