Salman Khan's show "Bigg Boss 9" has often been speculated to be scripted, but the channel has always denied such reports. The entire issue of "Bigg Boss 9 being scripted" came into spotlight once again, after reports of Suyyash Rai getting eliminated instead of Rishabh surfaced online. 

The recent buzz suggest that Suyyash was not supposed to be eliminated from the house as he had received more votes than Rishabh.

"When Suyyash was eliminated, he had received more votes than Rishabh Sinha. But the team decided to interchange Rishabh and Suyyash's votes and so the latter was eliminated," Bollywood Life quoted a source as saying.

Suyyash was reportedly eliminated just the week after he threatened to kill "Kyaa Kool Hain Hum 3" actress Mandana Karimi. But, Bollywood Life's report hints that this elimination was scripted, as Suyyash was evicted because he was unable to entertain the viewers, whereas Rishabh is a stronger contender. 

Thus, to save Rishabh, the channel eliminated Kishwer Merchantt's boyfriend citing the reason that he threatened to kill Mandana, according to Bollywood Life. The makers of the show are yet to shed light on the issue, but if it is true, then it will surely come as a major shock to the fans of Suyyash and "Bigg Boss 9". 

Meanwhile, Rishabh has entered the finale week along with Mandana, Prince Narula and Rochelle Rao. The four contestants will now compete to win the "Bigg Boss 9" trophy along with the prize money. The grand finale of Salman's show will be held on 23 January.
