Bigg Boss 5 was the fifth season of the Indian reality TV show Bigg Boss, which aired on Colors from 2 October 2011 to 7 January 2012 with Sanjay Dutt as the host.[1] Salman Khan hosted the opening, the Diwali special episode and a few eviction episodes along with Sanjay Dutt after which Sanjay took over as the permanent host of the season.
The series was won by soap actress and television presenter Juhi Parmar on 7 January 2012.[2]

During the launch on 2 October, fourteen hand-picked housemates entered the house located in Karjat, a town, about halfway between Mumbai and Pune in the Indian state of Maharashtra. Four additional wild card entries were made during the second, third, fourth and the end of seventh week taking the number of contestants to eighteen. The housemates, considered strangers for each other, spent 98 days (14 weeks) locked out together under the supervision of 55 cameras fitted around the house.
A number of controversies hit the fifth series of the show; it was the first series to feature a landslide majority of female housemates with the ratio being 14 to 1 at the time of the launch. The fifth series is also notorious for its infamous incidents of violence throughout the season leading to removal of popular housemate Pooja Misrra or Day 55. The decision to eject her from the house received much uproar from the audience and in order to pacify this she was later sent in as a houseguest.

Runner-Up, Mahek Chahal returned to compete in Bigg Boss Halla Bol. She became the second housemate to get evicted on Day 17.

Controversies[edit]

  • Earlier, contestant Mandeep Bevli had asked Nihita Biswas whether she had sex with Charles Sobhraj. Nihita was sure of facing trouble in answering questions about her marriage, but she had not expected the quires about her sex life. Talking to reporters, Nihita said, "I am not used to such questions and they should have exercised some restraint." Nihita Biswas added, "But I must mention that Mandeep apologised later. She came up to me and said she shouldn't have asked me such a question on a public platform. She wasn't the kind of person I thought she was. She is, in fact, one of the nicest inside the house."
  • On Day 12, Pooja Misrra showed a clear sense of fury by kicking a dustbin and breaking kitchen stuff grabbing a lot of public attention. T[10]
  • Siddharth Bhardwaj and Shonali Nagrani were seen romancing each other in Bigg Boss 5 house. Episode aired on 26 October 2011 of Bigg Boss 5 caught Siddharth consoling and hugging Shonali and kissing her hand. Shonali, on her part seemed to reciprocate his affection. When celebrity publicist Dale Bhagwagar was asked if the two were doing it for publicity and to increase TRP, Dale said that all of the Bigg Boss 5 contestants are aware that they are wearing mics and are surrounded by cameras 24x7. Dale Bhagawar added, "They have all gone on the show with personal agendas and roles to portray. They have all gone on it to play and win." Media and the audiences also considered this to be a vague TRP stunt.[11]
  • During the show, Contestant Vida Samadzai accused Pooja Misrra of stealing her waist band. Misrra vehemently denied the accusation saying she had picked up the ornament by mistake thinking it to be hers. Misrra said she owned a similar one but Vida refused to believe her. The conversation turned into an ugly spat with house captain Shonali Nagrani called in to intervene. Vida, also, accused Misrra of calling her a Whore which she assumed after unclearly hearing Pooja M. say To the core. Sanjay Dutt, on the eviction night, warned Vida not to make such vague assumptions and hurl pointless accusations on others.[12]
  • On Week 7's eviction night "Aapka Farmaan", Salman Khan strictly warned Siddharth for his shameful behavior with Mahek Chahal and Pooja Misrra. Salman Khan asked Siddharth to have control over his tongue and actions. Salman Khan and Sanjay Dutt severely criticized Siddharth’s foul language, character assassination and cheap actions behind Mahek and Pooja M. bringing him to tears. Even John Abraham asked Siddharth to take care of his behavior towards ladies inside the house. On hearing all these, Siddharth apologized and started crying on national television. Salman and Sanjay also questioned Akashdeep for not stopping Siddharth when he was displaying such disrespectful acts of manners.[13]
  • On Day 55, Pooja Misrra exhibited an act of violence when she pushed Siddharth. Following this, Siddharth went on in front of the cameras appealing to the Bigg Boss to eject Pooja otherwise he'll walk out of the competition by climbing the walls of the house. As a result, Bigg Boss ejected Pooja M. the very instance. Former contestants of this season of the show have expressed relief. Afghan beauty Vida Samadzai, who got evicted last week, says, "It is great. I am very happy that Pooja is out of the house. It was about time this happened. She is a mean person and a big drama queen." Samadzai however adds, "I hope she learns a lesson from this and becomes a better human being." Singer Raageshwari Loomba, who left the house a month earlier, says, "Though I don’t follow the show anymore, I know there have been negative attacks on her. Her behaviour in the house may be because of the unnatural setting of the show that drives a person to the edge. I only hope this helps her positively."[14][15]
  • Sunny Leone managed to create much hype with her Bigg Boss stint, but her presence in the show did not go down well with The Indian Artistes and Actors Forum (IAAF), reports Headlines Today. IAAF requested I&B Minister Ambika Soni to take action against Colors for indirectly encouraging and promoting pornography in India via the introduction of an adult entertainer, as per the channel. According to a report published in a daily, Sunny Leone has become the most searched adult celebrity on web and it's becoming difficult to keep the children away from accessing her explicit videos and pictures. "As far as this particular complaint... I haven't heard about it... Of course these complaints come up from time to time over content issues of different channels across the television," Ambika Soni told Headlines Today.[16] Apart from the accusations on her, Sunny became the most searched Indian celebrity on Google beating Bollywood sensations Katrina Kaif, Aishwariya Rai and Kareena Kapoor.[17][18][19]
  • Many evicted housemates which include Pooja Bedi, Shraddha Sharma, Raageshwari, Shakti kapoor, Pooja Misrra and Vida Samadzai[20] accused Salman Khan for favoring housemate Mahek Chahal for being partial towards her. Their claims were,later, rejected by the actor himself after Mahek got evicted on 11 December 2011.
  • Unlike the international versions of Big Brother, in Bigg Boss, the hosts are seen to be intimidating contestants on the show for their conduct and are often witnessed interfering in almost everything exhibiting a partial stance towards few. On the Opening of the season Salman and Sanjay ridiculed Shakti Kapoor after he entered the house saying, "Bigg Boss ko maanna padega! Shakti Kapoor jaise logon ko apne ghar bulaya, hum toh kabhi na bulayen!". Shakti was hurt by these remarks and demanded an apology from Salman, however, was never reached by either Khan or Dutt.[21] Later, Salman Khan and Sanjay Dutt also lashed out at Siddharth Bhardwaj for being too unmannerly with Mahek Chahal and Pooja Misrra and the same continued with other housemates few weeks later when Salman Khan went inside the house on 17 December 2011 and severely scolded contestants for their behaviour. On 24 December 2011, Sanjay Dutt displayed infurious attitude towards Juhi Parmar, Akashdeep Saigal and Sunny Leone for bringing out a problem that concerned them regarding Amar Upadhyay's indecent moves on female housemates. Evicted housemate Pooja Bedi after watching the episode, in fury, claimed,"It's clear Salman went in there to demoralise, confuse, hurt and lie to Sky. Any guesses as to why he would misuse his position to do so? Salman previously had threatened Sid, and said, he would kick his arse. Hosts cannot intimidate contestants! Wrong. if contestants are bad, they get nominated and if public dislikes them, they get eliminated. That's reality TV, not hosts threatening, if Salman can get aggressive with contestants, why is he upset they do so with each other?"[22] The hosts are also seen to be very manipulative throughout the season. From altering the results to controlling appearances of celebrities, all was witnessed to be formatted by co-host Salman Khan. Due to the remarks made by Pooja Bedi on Salman's interference with the results and favoritism towards Mahek Chahal, Pooja was banned from attending the season finale to be held on 7 January 2012. The actress was humiliated on this last minute change and expressed, "So what if I disagree with a host and don't like a contestant! Is that reason for Channel not to have me at finale?" Pooja Bedi further stressed, "Have asked channel to state reason I cannot be there at finale to cheer my friends on! Also, till yesterday I was to do a medley! What changed?" [23][24] Bollywood Actor Hrithik Roshan was also refused entry in the finale. Hrithik was supposed to promote his upcoming release Agneepath on the grand finale of the TV show. Sanjay Dutt, the main villain of the film, being a part of the show should have helped the marketing initiative. However, Salman has put his foot down. Khan has now asked Imran Khan to promote Karan Johar's next production Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu on the grand finale.[25][26] Later, Pooja Misrra and Shakti Kapoor also fell targets. They also were banned from attending the finale because of speaking against Khan in the media.[27] Pooja Misrra was later asked to attend the finale.[28]

Ratings, Reception and Viewership[edit]

  • According to data available with aMap, a television viewership monitoring agency, the opening episode of Bigg Boss 5 on Colors got a rating of 4.3. Season 4 had an average rating of 3.6. Season 3 had average rating of 2.43 while Bigg Boss 2 and Bigg Boss 1 had average ratings of 2.03 and 1.96 .[29]
  • After Pooja Misrra's unexpected exit Bigg boss 5 started to lose its sky scraping viewership in less than a week. In India, many fans who were supporters of the newly renowned Pooja M., who was mercilessly bullied throughout the show, stopped watching since she was shown the doors. Many others stopped watching because of Sky and Siddharth's indecent display of manners towards the female inhabitants and also due to the continuous favoritism by the Bigg Boss who had always showed a lenient attitude towards the male contestants. As a result, Bigg Boss 5 got a marked decline in its TRP ratings which fell drastically after the Aapka Farmaan episode aired on 26 November 2011. According to some TRP sites BB5 had reached 0.69 at one point. The Undekha Act was not in top 100.[30][31]
