After a grilling 73 days, Divya Agarwal has been was announced as the winner of MTV Ace Of Space Season 01. She beat Pratik Sehajpal, Shehzad Deol, Miesha Iyer, Faizy Boo, and her rumoured boyfriend, Varun Sood to win the title.
Divya gained fame with her participation on Splitsvilla 10. Her strong connection with Priyank Sharma was also loved by the audience, who nicknamed them as Divyank. While the two could not win the show, the couple continued to find love from the audience. But all hell broke loose among fans when the two parted ways.
Priyank was said to be getting too close for comfort with Bigg Boss 11 co-contestant Benafsha Soonawalla. Things further turned ugly when Divya entered Bigg Boss Season 11 house and pulled up Priyank for his behaviour. She also accused him of cheating her. Soon their fans started taking sides and trolled each other.
Interestingly, Divya Agarwal entered Ace Of Space with Benafsha’s ex-boyfriend Varun Sood. In the initial days of the show, the two were seen only crying foul over their failed relationship. The duo tried their best to heal each other and in turn became quite close. Divya’s insecurity towards Varun came to the fore when she was visibly jealous of his closeness to Chetna Pande.
“This has been an overwhelming experience. MTV Ace Of Space challenged me to ride over my fears like never before. Surviving in a house with shrinking walls and complete strangers was an ultimate test of patience and I am happy I could come out stronger. During my enter stay, I have learnt a lot about myself. While this win feels surreal, I thank my parents, Varun and Vikas Gupta for the unending support and the audience for their love.” stated the winner.
Launched as a twisted social experiment with 18 contestants battling it out against shrinking walls and daunting challenges, MTV Ace Of Space became a roller coaster ride of broken bonds, mended friendships and emotional upheavals.
