Bigg Boss, one of the controversial reality show, is household name now. This reality show follows Bigg Brother format and was developed in Netherlands by Endemol.
Bigg Boss has given name to celebrities who were less known. The one who enters the show as contestant, either by their good deeds or controversies in the house makes their name and are now well-known celebrities. In short, we can say this show has given a big break to many small time or television actors.
Though everyone know the format of the show, let us tell you again. In the Bigg Boss House, few known personalities from television industry or Bollywood or from any other known industry were selected and made to stay in the house.
They were not allowed to contact the outer world, neither they are used to communicate through their mobiles or internet or paper. The housemates are also told to speak only Hindi and cannot sleep in day time. They are not even allowed to go out without Bigg Boss' permission.
Bigg Boss gives them few tasks, with some rules set, that is to be done in the house. Later, the housemates select few of their co-contestants for eviction and through public vote they are eliminated by the end of the week.
The Bigg Boss house is new every season with new theme. The house has all facilities and is well decorated. It also has confession room where Bigg Boss call the contestants for nominations or conversations.
