The first season's lavish house set, on the outskirts of Chennai at EVP Film City in Chembarambakkam, was renovated just before the start of this season. The renovated house included a "jail room" to increase the severity of punishment for contestant mistakes.[6][7][8][9]

The winner of Bigg Boss Tamil 2 was Riythvika, who won a trophy and a cash prize of 50 lakhs (5 million). Aishwarya Dutta was the runner-up, and the other finalists were Vijayalakshmi Agathiyan and Janani Iyer.[10]

  • ^Note 2 : Nithya and Ananth were nominated for Week 3's eviction because they had performed poorly during the second week's luxury budget task. Daniel and Riythvika, who was nominated as the best performers of the same luxury-budget task, were saved from the following week's eviction.[69]
  • ^Note 3 : For the week-4 eviction, the housemates were divided into groups; each group had to decide who would be nominated for eviction.

  • ^Note 18 : Balaji, Daniel, Janani, and Riythvika were nominated as the worst performers of the week-10 luxury budget task, and were nominated for the week-11 eviction.

  • ^Note 19 : Although Mahat was supposed to be the week-11 house captain, he was evicted at the end of week 10; Kamal Haasan decided to nominate Sendrayan as the week-11 captain in accordance with the other housemates' wishes and because he had not been house captain.[58]
  • ^Note 20 : There was no nomination process during week 11. Balaji, Daniel, and Janani, who were nominated for eviction after being judged the worst performers of the previous week's luxury budget task, faced a public vote.[80]
