Bigg Boss Double Trouble (stylized as Bigg Boss: Nau)[1] is the ninth season of the Indian reality TV series Bigg Boss[2] that premiered on 11 October 2015 on Colors TV. Salman Khan returned to host the ninth season.[3][4]

The series was won by television personality Prince Narula while television actor Rishabh Sinha was runner up of the show.[5]

Production[edit]

House theme[edit]

The house theme mainly focuses on aesthetics to adapt to the underlying premiere twist for the ninth season which revolves around the housemates entering the house in pairs rather than as individual housemates.[6] The house sections are replicated to depict places in history and around the globe. The exterior of the house is crafted to recreate the Garden of Eden.[7][8] It features a fortune teller machine and a wide canopy. The kitchen contains most of its sculptural and art pieces from the architecture of Santorini while the bathroom area follows a glitzy Las Vegas theme.[9] The bathroom walls are lined with mirrors and most of the furniture is crimson. The bedroom contains all double bed and the confession room is situated between the kitchen and the living area as with every series since 2011, featuring a royal themed chair.[10] The housemate wall has been installed for the first time in house with the LED screens to keep track of housemates' status.

Nomination notes[edit]

  • ^1 Housemates entered the house in seven pairs. Each pair nominated another pair with consensus when called into the confession room. Vote against a pair added one vote against each individual in the respective pair. Housemates therefore faced eviction individually.
  • ^2 Pairings were revised prior to this week's nominations.
  • ^3 Each pair had to nominate two pairs for eviction. After nominations, the pairs with the most votes were revealed. Each of those pairs had to then decide among themselves which one of them would voluntarily put themselves up for eviction saving the other.
