Year after year we have seen unique and interesting concepts not only in the ‘Bigg Boss’ sets, but also in terms of the participants. Each year there is a different theme, last year we saw a cheerful and colourful décor in the Bigg Boss house. In Season 12, the house gets a complete makeover and has been turned into a sprightly beach themed decor. In Season 11, an underground chamber was introduced for punishment for belligerent housemates, they have continued with it in this season as well.
These apart, for the first time ever viewers had the opportunity to choose their favourite contestant Jodi via the Voot app, ahead of the television premiere, in a segment called ‘Bigg Boss OutHouse Taala Khol’, wherein four contestants were put into an ‘OutHouse’ 24 hours before the show’s premiere. With this newly introduced element, ‘Bigg Boss’ saw evictions happening on the very first day itself.
With the contestants settling in, the competitive spirit will kick in soon and all the plottings, pairings, tussles, tasks, et al, that make ‘Bigg Boss’ such an intriguing watch day after day, will begin.
