Khatron Ke Khiladi is a stunt-based Indian adventure reality show. The show is inspired by the American adventure reality show ‘Fear Factor.’ Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi was first aired on TV in July 2008. In this show, around 12 to 18 celebrity contests participate every season. These contests are mostly from India’s TV industry and film industry. However, in a few seasons’ sports personalities like Geeta Phogat and Shrishant also participated. The contests of the show go through various stunts and adventure games throughout the season. In some 14 to 22 episodes, the contests are also eliminated based on their performance in the show. At last 3 to 5 contests qualify for the final stunt which decides the winner of the season. Notably, the shooting of this Hindi language Indian show is conducted in various foreign countries. Over the years, South Africa has been the favourite destination of makers for the shooting of the reality show. However, they also visited some other nations.
As the contests of the series are celebrities who are popular among the audience, it gets more from the audience than most other reality shows. Apart from contestants, the host of the various seasons also remains the attraction for viewers. Akshay Kumar was the host of the reality show for the initial two seasons. But director Rohit Shetty has hosted the show the most number of times and he is the face of the show. However, Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra and actor Arjun Kapoor have also hosted the show. Till now 11 seasons of Khatron Ke Khiladi have been released and gained so much love from people. Notably, the 12th season of the stunt-based reality show series is releasing on 2nd July 2022. But before that, we would like to take you on a journey of the Best Seasons of Khatron Ke Khiladi. Read the full article to know the ranking of all the 11 seasons of Khatron Ke Khiladi and their specifications.
11. Season 9 (Jigar Pe Trigger)
Khatron Ke Khiladi: Jigar Pe Trigger is at the 11th position in our list of Best Seasons of KKK. Shot in Argentina, this season of Khatron Ke Khiladi had 12 participants who fought for the trophy in 20 episodes. The reason this season was not much popular is probably that the makers did not bring some newness to the show.

Hence, if you want to see some serious adventure rather than drama and comedy then you may not like season 9 much.
