Season 3 was hosted by Akkineni Nagarjuna and premiered on 21 July 2019.

Overview[edit]

Bigg Boss Telugu is a reality show based on the Hindi show Bigg Boss which too was based on the original Dutch Big Brother format developed by John de Mol. A 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 were five housemates remaining, and the public voted for who they wanted to win. Unlike other versions of Big Brother, the Indian version uses celebrities as housemates, not members of the general public.

Rules[edit]

While all the rules have never been told to the audience, the most prominent ones are clearly seen. The inmates are not permitted to talk in any other language except Telugu.

They always have to wear the lapel. They cannot leave the House premises at any time unless they are evicted or decided by Big Boss. They can not discuss the nomination process with anyone. They are not allowed to sleep without the permission of Bigg Boss.

House[edit]

The house for season one was set up at Lonavala.[2] For season two and three, the house was set up in Annapurna Studios, Hyderabad.[3] The house for seasons two and three each had a jail.

Broadcast[edit]

Bigg Boss Telugu is aired on Star Maa and also can be streamed on Hotstar. Every day's episodes contain the main happenings of the previous day. Every Sunday episode mainly focuses on an interview of the evicted contestant by the host.
