Huccha Venkat hogs limelight
There have been demands on social media sites and online platforms that Huccha Venkat be included in the "Bigg Boss 3" house. The hype seems to be justified as he hogged the limelight on the opening day. His fans on Twitter thanked the show organisers for his inclusion.

Fans have already started enjoying his straightforward attitude. People also raised eyebrows when he spoke to Sudeep without treating him like a star. Some of the contestants also expressed their insecurities over sharing house with him, but the makers will not really complain as his acts will only increase the TRPs.

Variety of contestants
"Bigg Boss" makers have roped in a variety of contestants for the third season. Not just TV and cinema celebrities, they have brought in people who are relatively new to the industry like Neha Gowda, who was a cabin crew by profession before quitting the job for the show and Jayashree, a model and dancer.

A mix of youngsters with seniors like Shruthi will only make it an entertaining show and increase the chances of unpredictability, say fans on social media sites.
