Bigg Boss 16, a contentious program on Colors TV, is currently available online. To no one’s surprise, Salman Khan is back as the show’s presenter. Omung Kumar once again created the “Bigg Boss” home this season. While maintaining its circus-themed decor, the home now boasts a new motif. You may have overt enthusiasm for it, or it may simply be a guilty pleasure, but it is something that unites us all. The ongoing struggles, confrontations, and disputes have such a dramatic quality that they can’t help but be noticed. After all, Bigg Boss is among the most divisive and popular reality shows on Indian television, with the highest TRP ratings. The drama and disputes between the several fractious contestants on Bigg Boss enthrall viewers every year for three to five months straight.
While the show may seem to be all fun and games at first, one quickly gets to realize the fact that staying in the Bigg Boss house and surviving is quite a big deal. It requires patience and determination from all the competitors. They must all live in a confined place for months, with a significant shift in lifestyle. Of course, it is their decision, but contestants must become accustomed to some things in order to remain in the game. Therefore, there are a number of things you must get familiar with before you enter the madhouse called the Bigg Boss house.
- Living with your worst enemies
This is just one aspect of being a part of the Bigg Boss house. You are required to live with people who wish the worst for you and vice versa. You may fight with them and argue as much as you want but at the end of the day, you have to keep living with them. Moreover, you cannot go to great lengths to really chastise them or you would be exposed by the cameras that are present all over the lofty location of the residence.
- Living without any electronic gadgets
Mobile phones have become an extremely pervasive part of our lives. We are all so obsessed with it that the first thing we do waking up every morning is to look at it to get all the news and gossip flying around. One major part of being a contestant in the Bigg Boss house is that you have to kiss your personal life goodbye. You cannot access any of your gadgets when you are stuck inside. This means you lose all connections to your mobile phones, laptop, iPad, etc.
Your social media accounts that you so dearly love are meant to stay away from you for three months. What a horror to give it all up for months. It is understandable why individuals fight when they get home because there is no other place for them to express their emotions. The excitement everyone felt upon seeing the landline during the hostel task is likely due to this as well.
- Changing your entire lifestyle
Staying in the Bigg Boss house for three months straight entails a bunch of lifestyle changes that you might not have expected. The reality show boasts of treating all its contestants with the same facilities and amenities.
It can be extremely difficult to get into the house and then see all your personal conventional routines and habits being neglected for the time that you stay there. These can range from food items to your personal hobbies. Some contestants learn it the hard way, a case in point being Shalin.
- Getting roasted
The contestants at the house are dealing with something completely new this season. The involvement of the Boss himself in the show has been quite tricky for the contestants to manage, and quite entertaining for the audience to watch.
The Boss is much too engaged in all the tasks and to the discomfort of many contestants, he even ends up roasting them every once in a while. While they are as funny as they can be, it is tricky for the contestants to learn to deal with these constant comments roasting them.
- Being your real self
Anything you do, avoid doing this. Don’t show up in the Bigg Boss house looking like you’ve just gotten out of bed. You must keep in mind that there is nothing conventional in the house, and the crowd is not wasting their time to see the usual you. So, please bring your makeup and wear it immediately before you plan to wake up!
Generally speaking, it’s best to present yourself honestly, especially in a reality show. But if someone is poisonous and bothersome, it’s preferable to keep that information to yourself. For example, Shalin once yelled at a doctor who had come to treat him. Now, that behavior was reprehensible. So basically, don’t be yourself if you’re a Shalin.
- Getting down and weird
As much as you want to keep up a good and decent image in the house, you must also be ready to get as weird as possible, while staying there. A number of tasks that are required of you to survive in the Bigg Boss house are downright weird and strange.
Performing them may make you look like an absolute idiot but you have to do them to maintain a strong foot in the competition. Moreover, the luxuries that you may get are also acquired through these.
- Maintain a worthy smile and posture
A smile and a good posture can easily win the hearts of countless people. Work on your ideal smile and angle at this time. To seem nice on camera, we all have a profile and a style. Make sure you work on them to achieve that attractive appearance. You don’t want to be caught off guard at a repulsive angle, subjected to online trolling, or left with permanent scars. Imagine if your butt fills the entire screen, making you the butt of all jokes!
- Being yelled at
While this must not be news, it would still be beneficial for you to keep it in mind. Once you are inside the house, you are going to be in the presence of people who might not like you. While some may be able to hide that disdain, a lot of times it would come up in borderline violent ways. The temperaments of some people might help them stay calm but others are downright ferocious.
Therefore, before you enter the madhouse, you must be prepared to yell as well as be yelled at. Do not hold back when you are up for yelling at someone either. Consider the desi abuses that start disputes and produce “WTF?” situations. So read up on the current abuses and, if you’re creative enough, come up with a few of your own.
