It’s only been celebrities or notable names who’ve been battling it out in the house of terror so far, but it seems that with the latest season of relative show Bigg Boss they may have met their match.

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.
