With celebrities from all walks of life fighting, scheming, flirting under one roof, Bigg Boss continues to garner high TRPs. Though reality shows gave a break to the audience from the never ending daily soaps, not all reality shows hit the jackpot.
There are a myriad of singing and dancing reality shows and it has become difficult from them to grab eyeballs. First few seasons of Indian Idol and Dance India Dance did well, but they seem repetitive now. And then there are shows like Roadies, Splitsvilla and Emotional Atyachaar which cater to a particular age group. You got to be extremely different and entertaining to stand out from the lot.
Shows like Kaun Banega Crorepati cashes on its star value. Master Chef is doing well because of its format and audience.
Season five of Bigg Boss is now on and it is becoming really popular. So what makes Bigg Boss a hit? Firstly, it is a celebrity reality show. It increases the audience interest automatically. We always want to know the off-screen life of the rich and famous. Bigg Boss cashes on this factor very well.
The Bigg Boss team gets the most controversial and catty celebs on the show. And when their best kept secrets come out, the show climbs up the TRP ladder.
Romance on national television, is another reason for Bigg Boss series’ success. Starting from season one with Anupama Varma and Aryan Vaid to Ashmit Patel and Veena Malik in the last season, we have seen rise and fall of many couples on Bigg Boss so far. This year, there are some sparks flying between Shonali Nagrani and Siddharth Bhardwaj, let’s see what happens in future.
Though Bigg Boss is a reality show, but it never falls short of drama. In the last season we saw Bigg Boss housemate Sara Khan tying the knot with her beau Ali Merchant on the show. Right from Haldi, Mehndi to Nikaah all the ceremonies were made a part of the show.
Bigg Boss remains on-air for 3 months non-stop. For all the television addicts, it becomes like a daily dose of entertainment. You like it or not, but you back to the show again and again.
By now, Bigg Boss has become a one stop shop for entertainment with audience glued to all the action and drama. So for at least next few years there are no chances of Bigg Boss series going off-screen.
