- Saroj Verma from Hisar was the first contestant of the season
- Saroj Verma went home with Rs 10,000
- Shri Kisan Yadav was the second contestant of the episode
The game - Kaun Banega Crorepati - only actually began after Big B briefly explained the rules and here's a refresher, just in case. The contestants will have 45 seconds to answer each question allotted in Level 1 and a minute each for questions in the second round. For the uninitiated, Big B also mentioned the two new Lifelines, which have been introduced this season. Apart from Audience Vote and 50/50, the contestants can now video call a friend (Video-A-Friend) and ask a partner to join him/her on the hot-seat for one query (Jodidaar), the only lifeline which also allows the remaining ones to be applicable simultaneously.
Saroj Verma, who exhausted two of her lifelines for answering the first question itself, ran out of lifelines by the time she cleared Level 1. Saroj Verma, who survived to play nine questions on the show, however, went home with prize money of Rs 10,000. The next contestant to take the hot-seat was Shri Kisan Yadav, who also hails from Haryana. Saroj Verma and Kisan Yadav answered tackled questions ranging from details of political personalities and Bollywood to mythological queries and cricket.
If you're planning to register for the show, here's the sort of questions you can expect.
