As controversial show "Bigg Boss 9" is nears conclusion, speculations are rife over who among the remaining contestants — Prince Narula, Mandana Karimi, Keith Sequeira, Rochelle Rao, Priya Malik and Rishabh Sinha — will emerge the winner of the season.

With Prince Narula becoming the first finalist of the season, one can't help but wonder if he will win the "Bigg Boss 9" title.

Here are some of the reasons why we think the hunk deserves to be the winner.

Prince following in Gautam Gulati's footsteps: Gautam was the first finalist of "Bigg Boss 8" and this season Prince became the first one to enter the finale. Further, just like Gautam, who faced rejection from co-contestants during the initial days of "Bigg Boss 8" and then went on to become viewers' favourite, Prince was rejected by fellow contestants as their partner on the first day itself.

A strong contestant: The Punjabi lad has always proved his mettle when it comes to physical tasks. He is undoubtedly one of the strongest contestants inside the house, and has given it all to complete any task. His strong no-quitting determination also bagged him the "Ticket to Finale".

Massive fan-following: Prince has a massive fan-following, who vote for him in huge numbers, thereby placing him in the top position every week.

Winners of two reality shows: The hunk has won two reality shows — "Roadies X2" and "Splitsvilla 8" — both of which required him to undertake rigorous physical activities. If Prince emerges the winner of "Bigg Boss 9", he would create a record of sorts for winning three back-to-back reality shows.

Emotional Atyachar: Prince definitely knows how to play the game and provide good content. He built a romantic relationship with Yuvika Chaudhary and then Nora Fatehi inside the mad house. He also used his brother-sister relationship with Kishwer Merchantt to his advantage, which resulted in Kishwer sacrificing herself on the show for her "brother" Prince, while he made it to the finale.
