Bigg Boss made the 13th week interesting with "ticket to finale" or "road to finale" task, in which Prince Narula, Kishwer Merchantt and Mandana Karimi emerged as the winners. However, only one out of these three contestants got the 'road to finale' ticket and one contestant left the house.
The contestant who won the task and will now be seen in the house until the finale is Prince, while the contestant who left the house with a whopping amount is Kishwer.
Bigg Boss introduced a buzzer task wherein the winners of "road to finale" were given three options – the first person to press the buzzer will stay in the house, the second one will take a huge amount of money and leave the house, while the third one wins the task and directly enters the finale.
Mandana played a smart game, pressed the buzzer first, and walked out of the task leaving Prince and Kishwer to fight it out. Now since Prince and Kishwer share a good bond they decided not to press the buzzer till the end so that the is cancelled.
However, Bigg Boss increased the prize money from Rs 6,33,333 to Rs 8,00,000 and later to a whopping Rs 15,00,000. Bigg Boss also asked Kishwer and Prince to mutually decide as who will take the prize money and quit the show.
And according to a India-Forums report, Kishwer took the prize money and walked out of the show, making Prince the first finalist of "Bigg Boss 9".
So with Kishwer's departure, "Bigg Boss 9" house is left with six contestants and they are Prince, Mandana Karimi, Priya Malik, Rishabh Sinha, Rochelle Rao and Keith Sequeira.
