    Well, based on how the people use to predict the results over here based on counting of relationships, the predictions are...

    Bamin Siri from Diibo, Hage Asha from Hari, Nani Tani from Kalung-Reru, Nada Dumi from Hija and may be Hibu Uma and Tilling Dolley from Hong....But then, these predictions are not scientific and the final results may sway in any wait till results are declared on 2nd of June :)
