There's been a lot of buzz since the announcement that common folk will also be part of Bigg Boss Dus. The results are in, and there are thirteen names (don't get thrown off by the unlucky number) who have been selected via auditions for the next round and one step closer to entering the house of one of the most watched shows on television.
Apparently, now the audience decides which eight out of the thirteen make the final cut, Colors informs. There's a businessman, a radio jockey, an accountant and a student amongst others, and we can only say, we're excited.
Here are the contestants vying for a spot:
A boisterous businessman from Ludhiana, 30-year-old Dev has a penchant for bhangra.
Don't go by his namesake. 27-year-old Firoz is all about adventure sports.
Mumbai-bred Kashmiri Kajol, 23, is passionate about dancing.

25-year-old student Lokesh does what any student her age loves - dance, travel, sing and live life to the fullest.
Pune-based RJ 'Mandy' love road trips and house parties.
The very entertaining Manoj doesn't just have a way with the ladies, but even a knack for imitations. Funnily, he's a businessman by profession.
