Bigg Boss | Updated:

Big Boss is India’s No. 1 reality television show which is currently broadcasting its 11th season in Colors channel. The concept of Big Boss has been taken from the original Dutch Television show “The Big Brother” which was first developed by Endemol in the Netherlands. The inception of Big Boss started out in 2006 and broadcasted its first season on Sony TV Channel and afterwards, it started to broadcast in Colors till present. This is regarded to be one of the popular TV shows of all time that within a span of 11 years it has telecasted 10 seasons and 11th season is still being shown now.

In Big Boss a number of contestants mostly celebrities from various walks of life like actors, business tycoons, musicians, models, politicians, etc lives in a purposely built house totally separated from the rest of the world. They were not allowed to interact with their friends and family members nor were they allowed to use any sort of communication in forms of the phone, internet, television, internet connection, pen, paper, etc. Here the contestants or the house inmates need to co-ordinate and adjust with each other, perform various tasks given by them and moreover, they also need to save themselves from elimination based on public voting. Every week the house inmates nominate two among them for expulsion and the inmates who get the maximum nominations would face public voting. The one who leaves the house is evicted from the Big Boss house. However, this process is formulated by the Big Boss. The housemates are constantly supervised by the mysterious person called “Big Boss” who resides in the house only trough his magnificent voice.

The house of the Big Boss is well furnished with spacious decorated rooms, gym, confession room, bathroom, garden, swimming pool and activity area. While the Big Boss rules are never revealed before the audiences but the main rules are seen in this show, for example, the inmates are not allowed to talk in any other language other than Hindi, cannot sleep during the daytime, not to mess about with House properties and cannot discuss nomination process with any other house inmates.
