While every year contestants used to compete with each other individually, this time many jodis will be marking their presence and will be considered as one in the show. On the grand premiere itself, two people were evicted from the show. Well, it is definitely not easy to get locked up in the house and stay disconnected from the outside world for such a long time and survive with just each other. Not just survive but the contestants have to entertain their audience as well. So, who are the contestants of Bigg Boss 2018 and what were they doing before entering the controversial show? Get all the details and latest pictures here!

Sreesanth’s name gets associated with Bigg Boss every year. It is suggested that the former cricketer will enter the house but this time this is actually happening. Sreesanth has often found himself in the eye of the storm. An IPL spot-fixing case in 2013 saw him go behind bars. Other than being a cricketer, Sreesanth is famous for his dance moves and participated in dance reality show Jhalak Dikhla Jaa.

One of India's most popular Bhajan singers seems to be a total misfit for the show generally known for fights and showdowns. But seems like Anup is all set to break his own image. The twice-married singer will be seen with his student, or should we say girlfriend, Jasleen Matharu in the show.
Born and brought up in Mumbai, she began her career in the entertainment industry in Zee Marathi’s Bhagyalakshami. Apart from working in TV series, she has been a part of Marathi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, and Hindi films. She rose to fame with her role in comedy drama May I Come In Madam?
