Bigg Boss Season 16 finale will take place on February 12. From Priyanka Chahar Choudhary, Shalin Bhanot, Archana Gautam, Shiv Thakare, and MC Stan, the winner will be announced in the finale episode. All the participants will perform on stage for the finale.

A Twitter poll by HT Entertainment, which did not feature Archana Gautam, went in favour of Priyanka Chahar Choudhary - who received 37.3% votes. Shiv Thakare was marginally below Priyanka with 32.4% votes. Rapper MC Stan got 24.7% votes while actor Shalin Bhanot received just 5.6% votes. It may be worth noting that, when we checked the result of the poll, there were still many hours left for the poll to close.
