Bigg Boss and its popularity needs no introduction but still if anyone is wondering what this show is all about and also needs a recap of previous ten seasons of Bigg Boss, here we are. Bigg Boss is said to be Indian television’s most controversial show, and is on with its 11th season currently. The show airs on Colors channel and it follows the Big Brother format, which was first developed by Endemol in the Netherlands.

What actually happens in Bigg Boss:

In the show, a number of contestants are locked inside the Bigg Boss house. All the housemates are isolated from the rest of the world. While they are made to perform and do all the household works themselves, each week they face nominations which leads to eviction on the basis of public vote. In the final week the winner is the person who gets the maximum votes and has lived in the house for the longest phase. Housemates are overseen by a mysterious person known as ‘Bigg Boss’, whose only presence in the house is through his voice.

The show began way back in 2006 and over the years a lot has changed in the Bigg Boss house and format too. Hence, keeping track of all the celebrities on Bigg Boss must be a challenge for you. Thus, we are here with the highlights of all previous seasons. Read on.
