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-builthouse situated in EVP Theme Park 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 will be 4-5 housemates remaining, and the public would vote for who they want to win. Unlike other versions of Big Brother, the Indian version uses celebrities and well-knowns as housemates, not members of the general public.
For the first season of Bigg Boss, a lavish house set was constructed at EVP theme park, Chennai.The show was aired at prime time on all seven days, 9.00-10.30 pm on week days and 8.30-10 pm on weekends.
The winner of the first season of Bigg Boss Tamil was Tiruchy-based model-actor Aarav and he received a cash prize of ₹50 lakh and for his victory, while lyricist Snehan was the runner-up.
