The season premiered on June 24, 2015, on CBS, and once again was a two-night launch with the following episode airing on June 25, 2015. The season ended on September 23, 2015, with a 90-minute season finale following the fall season premier of Survivor: Cambodia. The season also featured the highest number of house guests to date with 17 in total. On September 23, Steve Moses won the game in a 6-3 vote against Liz Nolan.

According to a report on a prominent news portal, London-born teenage NRI model Pearl Raah may possibly also be Salman Khan‘s new face for “Dabaang 3“. The report states that the 18-year-old Pearl Raah who is a good, close friend of Salman Khan is being mentored and tutored by the Badshah of Bollywood for a forthcoming project.

Meanwhile another report, says Salman Khan has a new “friend” in his life? The report goes on to mention that if sources are to be believed, Salman Khan has a new ‘woman’, oops ‘friend’ in his life. And the new friend is none other than 18-year-old, London-born NRI teenager Pearl Raah. It seems the two met when Salman Khan visited London last year and hit off very well. They chatted for hours and it is rumored that Salman Khan even invited Pearl to have dinner with him. The two have been in constant and daily touch on phone and IM since then.

Says a source close to Pearl Raah, “We knew that she was ‘good friends’ with Salman Khan for the last few months, but we can’t say for sure if it’s a relationship. Salman is a very helpful guy and he spent a long time with Pearl trying to explain to her the nuances of the film industry. Pearl, who has applied for a Masters in Business Administration course from a prominent University in London has plans to shift to Mumbai very soon. Her family is not in favor of shifting to Mumbai, but Pearl seems to have made up her mind. She is all set to storm Bollywood – of course with ‘bhai’ help and blessings. A little birdie told us that Pearl is looking for a flat in Bandra and as usual ‘bhai’ has given her the mobile numbers of all his top real-estate friends. We wonder if there is anything more to this friendship? Only time will tell. Wait and watch this space as well spill the beans.

But for now we wish Pearl all the best and of course, looking forward to Sallu’s forthcoming film Sultan as we wait for more news on Dabaang 3.
