Aman Yatan Verma's shocking elimination from "Bigg Boss 9" has surprised not only viewers but the star himself as well.

Having lived in the mad house and interacted with fellow contestants over a span of six weeks, Aman feels there's no strong male contestant who can win the show.

Does this mean Prince Narula, Suyyash Rai, Rishabh Sinha, Kawaljeet Singh and Keith Sequeira are out of the race?

"I see Kishwer, Mandana and Rochelle going till the finals. Mandana is mentally strong, though she is ill at the moment. Kishwer is also very strong, but her only minus point is she does not check what she says," PTI quoted Aman as saying.

Aman isn't the first on the list to make such a statement. Puneet Vashist, who was evicted last week, said Mandana Karimi could be the winner, but his reasons were completely different.

The actor said because Salman Khan favours the Iranian beauty, she has a chance of lifting the coveted Bigg Boss trophy.

"He is just seeing the outer beauty, he is not seeing what she does and what she is, and somehow all the 'gandpana' (bad things) she is doing is not shown. She is a pretty little doll who comes in front of the camera and cries," IANS quoted him as saying.

In other news, Priya Malik will be seen entering the Bigg Boss house on Monday. She is determined, fierce and all set to push the housemates out of their comfort zones.
