Being an Indian and not knowing about the show Big Boss, does seem like a crime at some point. If one show that everyone has watched once in his life is this show and that’s not because of our Bollywood superstar Salman khan hosting the show but because we all are just living for drama. The entertainment sector is running on the word drama and more the drama these shows bring to us, the more will be the fanbase of the show.
The Big Boss in the Indian reality television series industry can be considered one of the biggest names to ever exist. It shares the same level as that of Khatron Ke Khiladi, Jhalak Dikhla Jah, and Indian idols and most probably, you are very well aware of this show. When it comes to the IMDB ratings of this show, you all will be shocked because it is absolutely not what we expect. The ratings are very low and that is because there is no particular kind of content in this show, it is about who is the toughest in all those dramatic situations and what is controlled by someone who feels like it.
The show though has a very low rating, when it comes to the fan base of the show, it is actually huge, there are thousands of people all over India who keep on waiting for this show, and other than that, when it comes to even people outside, there are hundreds and thousands of people. One thing that is for sure, is that this show is not going to come to an end very easily and Salman khan is going to take this show to a different height.
Now before going into the main topic of the show, every season, we see new members joining the Big Boss family for that season, some are trending influencers on social media, whereas some are very famous television show personals, and sometimes even we get some movie stars to take in part in this show. One thing that every audience of this show always does, is that they have rooted for one particular contender from the beginning, and for some, it’s nice by the end of the season because their favorite contestant did win and for some, it isn’t because the opponent won. However, it is a bumpy road and a journey for 3 months which is a huge period to live in a house with complete strangers without any form of entertainment. The winners of the season are also chosen in a set format of the show.
The contenders are given specific tasks and stuff that they need to do in groups and when someone shows indecency, unacceptable behavior, or stuff like that, that Big Boss house member is evicted from the house. The last one who stands at the end of the season can be considered the winner of that season. All over the show has been quite great and in the last few seasons, there have been a lot of controversies regarding but that doesn’t change the fact that this show is the guilty pleasure of many Indians out there.
