"Bigg Boss 9" is gathering steam, and some of its contestants have emerged popular already. Some rose to prominence owing to the frequent tiffs, others due to their work experiences.

Prince Narula and Mandana Karimi, who hit it off really well in the first few days of the show, are now like chalk and cheese. Their constant arguments — some very heated ones and some unnecessary — have pushed them apart.

Although Prince is now out exploring possible romantic connections in the house, he may later have to find his way back to the Iranian import, like how it happened last year.

"BB8" winner Gautam Gulati and Diandra Soares couldn't stand each other after he hurled abuses at fellow contestant Karishma Tanna during a task. But a few weeks later, the supermodel warmed up to him, which resulted in a whirlwind romance.

It may be too soon to predict and nothing is set in stone, but there seem to be a pattern here.

Prince's point is Mandana is the least flexible of all the inmates and never adjusts, whatever the situation. Their blow-hot-and-cold equation is something that keeps one hooked to the show.

Also, Keith Sequira, who is now out of the house due to a family emergency, shares a very adorable relationship with girlfriend Rochelle Rao. What they do and say somewhat resonates with a pair form previous season — Karishma and Upen Patel.
