Bigg Boss in Telugu
Bigg Boss Telugu is the Telugu version of the Bigg Boss series which premiered its first season on 16th of July, 2017, and is airing its current season 4 from 6th of September, 2020. In the show, the contestants called ‘housemates’ live together in a house built specifically for the show purpose and isolated from the rest of the world without any connection to either network or internet. Once the show starts airing, every week the housemates will nominate two of their fellow contestants for the eviction procedure and the nominated housemates will then face public Bigg Boss Telugu voting which will determine the final evicted contestant.
In the final week, there will only be 5 contestants remaining, and will be open to the public vote to determine the winner of the show. Unlike the original Dutch show, here the housemates are played by celebrities. From the second season, the house will have 3 common people as contestants selected by the process of audition.
Rules of the show
All the rules have not been publicly disclosed to the audience, but you can easily make out certain basic but crucial rules that the house imposes on the housemates like them not being permitted to converse in languages other than Telugu, or that they have to wear a lapel. The housemates cannot vacate the premises of the house at any time unless said differently or evicted by Bigg Boss. They are also not allowed to discuss the nomination process with anyone. Also, they are not permitted to sleep unless they have the permission of Bigg Boss.
Bigg Boss House Design
A separate house is built for the sole purpose of the show and is well-furnished and decorated with all sorts of modern amenities but has only one or two bedrooms along with four toilet bathrooms. The house also provides additional features like a garden, a swimming pool, an activity area, and a gym. The House also has something called a confession room; this is where the housemates will be called by Bigg Boss to have a conversation and also for the nomination process.
From season two, the jail section was added in the house, while the courtyard part has been added from the third season. In season 4, a newly made special living area along with a lounge room was added replacing the activity and courtyard part of the house. For season one the house was in Lonavala, but from season two onwards, the house was set up in Annapurna Studios, Hyderabad.
