1. Umar Riaz
'Bigg Boss 13' first runner-up Asim Riaz's brother Umar Riaz is one of the confirmed contestants of 'Bigg Boss 15'. A few days ago, Umar, who is a doctor by profession, took to his Twitter handle to announce the news of him joining the house.
"Guys it's confirmed that I will be entering #bb15 house. I have always considered myself lucky to have all of you supporting me all this while. I hope and wish you will support me in this journey as well," he had tweeted.
