Curtains came down on Bigg Boss Tamil season 5 with Raju Jeyamohan emerging as the winner. Priyanka Deshpande was the first runner-up, with Pavani Reddy, Niroop Nandakumar and Amir as finalists.
The finale of the fifth season of Bigg Boss Tamil was hosted by Kamal Haasan, and aired on Vijay Television and ended with Raju Jeyamohan winning the trophy. The viewers could also stream it live on Disney Plus Hotstar.
The fifth season was launched on October 3 last year. Usually, the new season begins in June and ends in September. The outbreak of the pandemic, however, has upset the regular calendar of the show. The fourth season went on air in September 2020 and concluded in January 2021.
The fifth season began with as many as 18 contestants who were handpicked from different social, economic and cultural backgrounds. There were also two Tamil speaking contestants of foreign origin. The diverse group of individuals made for an effective microcosm of society as they brought in different beliefs, ideologies and political thinking to the show.
