Bigg Boss was a group on Tengaged that followed the exact format of the reality television programme Bigg Boss, which is the Indian version of Big Brother. The group game concluded on 8 March 2012, when BENLINUS was the crowned the Ultimate Housemate.
Bigg Boss in GeneralEdit
To enter the Bigg Boss House was very simple, the only thing you had to do to enter the House was to fill out a very short application form. The vast majority of applicants became housemates, however several applicants were not chosen to enter the House.
All housemates each voted for one of their fellow housemates to be crowned House Captain, the housemate with the most votes then became House Captain. All housemates then nominated two housemates of their choice for eviction, the two or more housemates with the most nominations faced the public vote. After the nomination results were revealed the House Captain had to choose another housemate, excluding the nominated housemates, to face the public vote along with the already nominated housemates. The three housemates then faced the public vote to save, the housemate with the least amount of votes was evicted.
Ultimate Bigg BossEdit
Ultimate Bigg Boss was officially confirmed on 18 December 2011. The season was the fifth and final season of Bigg Boss. It allowed former housemates from previous seasons to re-enter the House. On 3 March 2012, BENLINUS was crowned the winner of Ultimate Bigg Boss with 64.7% of the final three-way vote.
There were various ways in-which a housemate could leave the Bigg Boss House. Below is a list of the many ways a housemate could leave the House.
An eviction was a process by which a housemate was removed from the Bigg Boss House, decided by a minority of the public vote. Once a housemate had been nominated for eviction, the viewing public could cast their votes for who they wanted to say in the House in an eviction.
Walking was the process by which a housemate left the Bigg Boss House voluntarily if he or she no longer wished to take part in the show. Housemates were allowed to walk at any time throughout the season. The departure of the housemate was normally revealed to the other housemates later in the day in the case of a housemate leaving without the rest of the housemates knowing.
Ejection was one of the ways in which a housemate could leave the Bigg Boss House. When a housemate was ejected, they were removed from the House solely by Bigg Boss, usually for severe or continual breaking of the rules and behaviour which was deemed unacceptable by Bigg Boss.
Winning Bigg Boss was a process by which a housemate had made it to the final and the public vote for who they want to win. If a housemate received the most votes to win in the final, they would leave the Bigg Boss House after everyone else and be crowned the winner of their season.
There were various forms of voting that housemates had to take part in such as for House Captain and for eviction.
A nomination was a vote cast by one housemate to put another housemate up for eviction. Every housemate could make two nominations and the two or more housemates with the most nominations cast in their name would be nominated for eviction. The nominated housemates then faced a public vote and the housemate with the smallest percentage of the public vote would be evicted from the House. A housemate could also be nominated by the House Captain; this means the chosen housemate would automatically face the public vote, regardless of whether he or she was nominated by the other housemates.
The House Captain was chosen after all housemates vote for whom they would like to become House Captain, the person with the most votes was then crowned House Captain. The House Captain was immune from all nominations, however he or she had to choose one housemate to automatically face the public vote.
Subtitles of Bigg Boss seasonsEdit
Most seasons of Bigg Boss were given a subtitle; although these subtitles were not revealed to the housemates, Bigg Boss did base twists around the subtitles.
Bigg Boss (Season 1)Edit
On Day 9, housemates all took part in nasty nominations, this meant that housemates had to nominate face to face.
The Final NominationEdit
During the second last week of Bigg Boss, Week 8, there were no regular nominations. The House Captain had to choose one housemate that he wanted to automatically bring to the final with him, the other three housemates that he did not choose would face the public vote in a double eviction.
Bigg Boss (Season 2)Edit
Nominating to saveEdit
During Week 5 of Bigg Boss (Season 2), housemates did not undergo regular nominations. All housemates were asked to nominate two housemates that they wanted to save from eviction, rather than to face eviction; the two or more housemates with the least amount of nominations faced the public vote along with the House Captain's nomination.
The Final NominationsEdit
For the final nominations, the House Captain decided which were the only two housemates to face the public vote.
Bigg Boss (Season 3)Edit
In a new nominations twist, the nominated housemates are allowed to escape nominations with a weekly Safety Task. The Safety Task winner would be exempt from nominations.
The Three House CaptainsEdit
On Day 8, three brand new housemates entered the Bigg Boss House. The three new housemates all automatically became House Captains. As House Captains, they each had to choose one housemate that would automatically be up for eviction. There were no regular nominations and the three housemates all took part in the Safety Task.
For Week 9 of Bigg Boss (Season 3) there were no regular nominations. Housemates, except for the House Captain, were asked to pair themselves with another housemate of their choice. All pairs faced the public vote and the the two pairs that received the fewest public votes were evicted.
Bigg Boss (Season 4)Edit
Each week the evicted housemate was asked to choose two housemates that he or she wanted to become the next House Captain. The other housemates then had to vote for which of the two housemates that they wanted to become the next House Captain.
Unbeknownst to the housemates and the public, there was not an eviction. The housemate who received the fewest public votes was moved into a secret room called the Bedsit. The chosen housemate made various decisions whilst he was in the Bedsit; he chose a housemate to automatically become House Captain, he chose to make one housemate's nominations null & void, he made one housemate exempt from nominations and his nominations were worth double.
Nominations by the publicEdit
For Week 6 of Bigg Boss (Season 4), there were no regular nominations. The public each voted for which two housemates, except for the House Captain, that they wanted to nominate for eviction. The other housemates then all voted for which of the two nominated housemates that they wanted to evict from the House.
The Final NominationsEdit
For the final round of nominations, housemates all nominated to save one of their fellow housemates from eviction; the three housemates who received the fewest amount of nominations all faced the public vote.
Ultimate Bigg Boss (Season 5)Edit
The theme of Ultimate Bigg Boss was "Back to Basics", this meant that there would be no twists and the format would just be regular Bigg Boss.
Most nominations in total - Mittens from Season 5, she received 38 nominations.
