Unlike other iterations of the reality show, Bigg Boss Telugu has featured different hosts every season except fourth and fifth season, which had Nagarjuna at the helm.

While the original Bigg Boss (Hindi version) is being hosted by Salman Khan for several years now, Bigg Boss Tamil has Kamal Haasan, Bigg Boss Kannada has Kichcha Sudeep and Bigg Boss Malayalam has Mohanlal as hosts.

The first season of Bigg Boss Telugu was hosted by Jr NTR while the second season was hosted by Nani. Bigg Boss Telugu is a spinoff of Bigg Boss, which itself is derived from the international reality TV series (originally Dutch) called Bigg Brother, developed by John de Mol. Bigg Boss Telugu season 5 will culminate on Sunday.
