Bigg Boss is a Malayalam-language version of the reality TV franchise Bigg Boss, which is based on the original Dutch Big Brother format developed by John de Mol Jr.. The show follows selected number of contestants, known as housemates, who are isolated from the outside world for 100 days (or 15 weeks) in a custom built house. The housemates are continuously monitored during their stay in the house by live television cameras as well as personal audio microphones. They are dictated to by an omnipresent entity named Bigg Boss. Each week, one or more of the housemates are evicted by a public vote. Number of contestants (known as "housemates") live in a purpose-built house and are isolated from the rest of the world. Each week, housemates nominate two of their fellow housemates for eviction, and the housemates who receives the most nominations would face a public vote. Eventually, one housemate would leave after being "evicted" from the House. In the final week, there will be five housemates remaining, and the public will vote for who they wanted to win. Unlike other versions of Big Brother, the Malayalam version uses celebrities as housemates, not members of the general public.
The house is well-furnished and decorated. It has various modern amenities, but just two bedrooms, living area, kitchen, store room, smoking room, and four toilet bath rooms. There is garden, pool, activity area and gym in the House. There is also a Confession Room, where the housemates may be called in by Bigg Boss for any kind of conversation, and for the nomination process. The House has no TV connection, no telephones, and no Internet connection.
They are not supposed to tamper with any of the electronic equipment or any other thing in the House. They aren't allowed to write using paper, book or anything else in the house. They cannot leave the House premises at any time except when they are permitted to. They cannot discuss the nomination process with anyone. They cannot sleep in the day time, are required to wear their mic all the time and speak only in Malayalam.
Sometimes, the housemates may be nominated for other reasons, such as: nomination by a person who has achieved special privileges (via tasks or other things), for breaking rules, or something else. If something very serious happens, a contestant may be evicted immediately. All the rules have never been told to the audience, however, the most prominent ones are clearly seen. The housemates are not permitted to speak in any other language except Malayalam.
Bigg Boss is aired on Asianet. Everyday's episodes contain the main happenings of the previous day. Every weekend episodes(Saturday and Sunday) are mainly shows the discussion of the Host (MohanLal) with other housemates and about the previous week, following discussing about elimination.
