The Bigg Boss Malayalam is an Indian TV series that follows the format of another very prominent and popular Indian TV series, the Bigg Boss Hindi.
The Bigg Boss Malayalam invites celebrities like models, actors, singers, directors, internet personalities, businessmen and other renowned people as its contestants. The contestants, called as housemates, are confined within the walls of a house, specially constructed for the purpose of the show, for a total of 100 days, which equals to approximately 15 weeks. During this time period, they do not have any contact with the outside world and cannot leave the house of their own accord unless there is some form of personal emergencies.
The famous Bigg Boss house has all sorts of modern amenities, two-bed rooms, a living area, kitchen, store room, smoking room, and four bathrooms. There is another room called the Confession Room, which is used when the Bigg Boss summons the housemates for nomination and other purposes. The house has no TV or internet connection. The participants are also not allowed to have phones in their possession.
The shows air on Asianet on Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday. The weekday shows the happenings of the previous days whereas the weekends are utilized to show an interview of the contestants who have been evicted through public vote out. The show host conducts the interview. The very famous Mohan Lal has hosted all the seasons of the show.
The vote out follows a simple procedure, the contestants nominate two of their fellow housemates to be voted out, and the one person who has the most number of nominations faces a public vote out. This process is repeated over the weeks until only five contestants are left, which is followed by a public voting procedure that decides the winner and runners-up.
