Bigg Boss (INDIA)

Bigg Boss is an Indian reality television game show. It follows the same format as of Big Brother, which was developed by Endemol in the Netherlands. In the past thirteen years, Bigg Boss has rolled out its thirteen seasons. This Indian reality television game show produced by EndemolShine India.

The first show of Bigg Boss in Hindi debuted in 2006. The first season was released on Sony TV and then season 2 to season 13 streamed on Colors TV network. There are a total of 1218 episodes, which does not include season 13, which is currently running.

The concept behind the show: In this show, contestants, also called "housemates" live together in a specially constructed house. The house is isolated from the outside world. Housemates get voted out (usually every week) until only one remains and who wins the prize, fixed before the start of the game. During their stay in this house, contestants are continuously monitored by live television cameras as well as personal audio microphones given to them.

Every week housemates nominate two of their peers for eviction, and the housemates who receive the most nominations would face a public vote. Voting is done by the public through SMS, social media. Of these two nominations, one would leave, having been "evicted" from the house. However, there were exceptions and changes to this rule as dictated by Bigg Boss. There were three housemates remaining in the house, in the final week, and the public voted for who they wanted to win. In the Indian version of Bigg Boss, housemates are primarily celebrities except for one non-celebrity selected via auditions. Known as 'Bigg Boss', a mysterious person / Persona watches over the housemates, and his only presence in the house is through his voice.

All contestants are required to indulge in housework and to do the tasks assigned by the producers of the show. The producer communicates with the housemates via the omnipresent authority figure known as Bigg Boss. The duties are assigned to test the teamwork abilities and community spirit of the housemates. The house-mate's luxury budget, which is a weekly allowance to buy luxury food items other than the supplied essentials. Outcome of the tasks governs the luxury budget for the contestants.
