Bigg Boss is an Indian Tamil-language version of the reality TV program Bigg Boss. The program follows the Big Brother format developed by Endemol in the Netherlands. Over five years, Bigg Boss has rolled out five seasons and Kamal Haasan has continued as a host for five seasons and broadcast by Star Vijay and streamed on Disney+ Hotstar.[2]

The first season was premiered on 25 June 2017, while the recently concluded fifth season launched on 3 October 2021 to 16 January 2022.[3][4]

Overview

Bigg Boss Tamil is a reality show based on the original Dutch Big Brother format developed by John de Mol Jr. Unlike original Big Brother, Bigg Boss Tamil features celebrity and commoner contestants. The contestants (known as "housemates") live in a house that is isolated from the world. Following anonymous internal voting by the housemates and external voting by television audiences, one housemate is "evicted" (removed) from the house each week. During the final week, the final four housemates vote to determine the show's winner. The eponymous Bigg Boss character serves as an omnipresent authority figure and represents the show's producers. He often interacts with the housemates to assign challenges and ask questions.

House

The house has amenities including a garden, pool, activity area and gym. It includes two large bedrooms, a living area, a kitchen, a storeroom, a smoking room, a jail, and four bathrooms.

The confession room is an unconventional addition, where all private conversations between the housemates and Bigg Boss occur. The house prohibits television, telephones, internet and clocks. In Season 2, the Smoking Room was inside, while the Restroom and the Jail were sited outside the House for punishment. The Girls' bedroom had a bathroom for emergencies. The New Place was also created where contestants could chat instead of using the Smoking Room. In Season 3, the Smoking Room was brought back outside, near the swimming pool.

The House has no TV connection, no telephones, no Internet connection, clocks, pen or paper.

Rules

Housemates are bound by various rules. For example, contestants must speak Tamil, may not tamper with objects in the house, may not leave the premises without permission, may not discuss the nomination process, may not sleep during the day, and may not commit violence against fellow housemates. Do not write in paper or written format. The complete rules are not revealed to the audience.

Airing

Daily episodes present the main events of the previous day while weekend episodes focus on discussion of the main problems of the week and interviews with evicted contestants. On the Sunday episode the host announces the evicted contestant.

Eviction

Contestants are nominated for eviction each week by their housemates. Viewers cast their votes in favour of the contestants they would like to save from eviction. Each viewer is entitled to cast ten votes per day. The contestant with the fewest votes is out. Contestants who break the rules or who leave the house for medical reasons are evicted.
