Chandanspshetty has bcm the winner of #bbk5 by the Kannadigas who voted him by spending Rs.3 per each vote. Infact, he has won all the online polls. Haters should accept the defeat n move on.

Pakada manne huduga #ChandanShetty was the most deserving winner of #BBK5, infact most people watched this season bcoz of him! Overall it was damp-squib with flop annoying TV stars just like Hindi version, common man added some drama but couldnt save TV ratings

Abhishek V:

A sense of satisfaction with the results is something even doctrate awardees and scholars should learn from 3rd std #Diwakar .He won my heart for sure.Very less people so excited of a friend #Chandan winning at his own cost.
