Bigg Boss Tamil : Vijay TV | Kamal Hassan, Namitha, Oviya, Juliana Play all
Bigg Boss Tamil 1 is the first season of the Tamil reality television series Bigg Boss Tamil. It started broadcasting on 25 June 2017 on Star Vijay. The show was hosted by Kamal Haasan.
The show is based on the Big Brother format developed by John de Mol. A number of contestants (known as "housemates") lived in a purpose-built house and were isolated from the rest of the world. Each week, housemates nominated two of their peers for eviction, and the housemates who received 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. Unlike other versions of Big Brother, the Indian version uses celebrities as housemates, not members of the general public.
For this season of Bigg Boss, a lavish house set has been constructed at EVP theme park, Chennai. The show is currently aired at prime time all days, 9pm on weekdays and 8:30pm on weekends.
