Bigg Boss is a reality show based on the original Dutch Big Brother format developed by John de Mol. A number of contestants (known as “housemates”) live in a purpose-built house and are isolated from the rest of the world. Each week, housemates nominate two of their peers for eviction, and the housemates who receives the most nominations would face a public vote. Of these, one would eventually leave, having been “evicted” from the House.
However, there were exceptions to this process as dictated by Bigg Boss. In the final week, there were three housemates remaining, and the public voted for who they wanted to win. The housemates in the Indian version are primarily celebrities with the exception of one who is a non-celebrity selected via auditions. Housemates are overseen by a mysterious person known as ‘Bigg Boss’, whose only presence in the house is through his voice.
While all the rules have never been told to the audience, the most prominent ones are clearly seen. The inmates are not permitted to talk in any other language than Hindi. They are not supposed to tamper with any of the electronic equipment or any other thing in the House. They cannot leave the House premises at any time except when permitted to. They cannot discuss the nomination process with anyone. They cannot sleep in day time.
Sometimes, the housemates may be nominated for other reasons, such as nomination by a person who has achieved special privileges (via tasks or other things), for breaking rules or something else. If something is very serious, a contestant may be evicted directly.
The official eye logo was unveiled by Colors TV on 15 August 2014 in the season teaser on YouTube. It had a futuristic look unlike the previous version which were depictions of a human eye with tweaks to coincide with the theme in the house. The eye sported a pupil with a turbofan of an aircraft while the borders of the eye having the shiny metallic skin. Speculations have insisted that the theme of the season has been adopted from the occurrence of the three fatal commercial airline crashes which had occurred, in a one-week span, during the former month involving Malaysia, Algeria and Taiwan airlines.
The house for the eighth season is located in Lonavla and has been designed to resemble a jumbo aircraft. With the interior of an aircraft the house is said to have a waiting lounge and separate sections for Business and Economy classes.
