Voting for the winner was indeed tough for there were more than one favourite in the show. Before his shocking exit just days before the grand finale, Rahul Mahajan [ Images ] was the popular choice to win the show. Even Raja Chaudhuri, the first runner-up, was much loved by the viewers, irrespective of his coarse language. Then there was shy second runner-up Zulfi Syed who managed to hold his own.

But Ashutosh's honesty (he did win the Mr Honest award) and clean image probably touched the viewers. Plus, most of the housemates said that he really needed the money (Rs 1 crore) the most.
Which brings us to this question: Did he really deserve to win? Did the fact that he really needed the prize money tilted the votes in his favour? Do you think Ashutosh was the right person to win Bigg Boss? If no, who do you think deserved to win?
