He is only heard throughout the season. Bigg Boss franchise has seven versions in seven different Indian languages. Apart from Hindi, the show is also seen in Marathi, Kannada, Tamil, Bengali, Malayalam, and Telugu.
The first franchise of the show debuted in Hindi, in the year 2006. The first season of Bigg Boss was hosted by actor Arshad Warsi. The show got immense popularity after Indian actress Shilpa Shetty’s victory in the Celebrity Bigg Brother 5. Shilpa Shetty was the host of the second season of Bigg Boss. The third season was hosted by Indian film actor and television host, Shree Amitabh Bachchan. The show is being hosted by actor Salman Khan, from its fourth season.
The Bigg Boss House
The participants of the show are the celebrities and the common people. Common people are selected for the show through a series of auditions. All the contestants, have to stay together in a specially designed Bigg Boss house. The Bigg Boss House is located in Lonavala, Pune. It is built and redesigned for every new season every year. This Bigg Boss house is completely isolated from the outside world. It has no Newspapers, no mobiles, and no contact with friends and family. Only the host of the show, Salman Khan, communicates with the contestants through his “ME” TV on weekends. Usually, the show is telecasted daily until its Grand finale, for about 100 to 110 days.
The Nomination and Eviction process
24×7, all the housemates are monitored under live CCTV cameras and microphones. The contestants have to perform various tasks given by the Bigg Boss during their stay in the house. Winners of the tasks are either given captainship, immunity, or luxury budgets. Each new week of the Bigg Boss house begins with a Nomination process. Each weekend, one contestant has to leave the house.
In the Nomination process, Each contestant, gives two names of their fellow contestants, for the eviction. Sometimes, it’s the opposite, they have to give names to save their favorite contestant. There is a secret room for this process called the “confession room”. Here the contestants not only nominate other contestants but, also share their emotions, and thoughts with the Bigg Boss. The contestant with the most nominations gets nominated for the eviction process. Audiences have to vote for their favorite contestants to save them from eviction. The voting system is through SMS and online voting.
The eviction process is based on audience votes. During the show, sometimes, there is no eviction and sometimes a double eviction. The show has wild-card entries too. The whole season of Bigg Boss is full of surprises, drama, fights, and twists, which makes it super exciting to watch. The last person surviving all evictions and getting the most audience votes is announced as the winner.
Bigg Boss season 12
Unlike the previous seasons, this year, Bigg Boss season 12 is given a new time slot. It will telecast at 9 PM every night. The previous seasons broadcasted at 10.30 pm on the weekdays and 9 pm for weekend ka vaar episodes.
The press conference for the launch of the show was held on 4th September in Goa. A total of 14 contestants will be participating in the show. The Popular comedian Bharti Singh and her writer husband Harsh Limbachiyaa were revealed as the first celebrity Jodi of this season. The other celebrity couple Dipika Kakar and her husband Shoaib Ibrahim might also be seen in Boss season 12. The channel has revealed other strange pairs of Bigg Boss in their new promos. The pairing of a cop and a lawyer and other a celebrity and a fan can also be seen in this season. However, the final list of all the contestants will be only unveiled on its premiere night. It is going to be very interesting to watch these strange pairs under one roof.
What I like most about the show is the screen presence of the host, Salman Khan. He is so lively, fun to watch, and fair throughout the season. He motivates and guides all the contestants. Like all other seasons of Bigg Boss, I’m sure this season is also going to be super exciting with lots of drama.
