The rules of the reality show, that follows Big Brother format originally developed and aired in the Netherlands in 1999, is very simple. A small group of people are confined inside a house with no access to the outside world for 100 days. The housemates take turns to cook, do chores etc. while their interactions are closely monitored by surveillance cameras. 

The contestants are then eliminated from the house in stages based on their popularity rating. They are given tasks to gain access to certain privileges inside the house. 

Bigg Boss Tamil Season One gained a lot of attention when it aired last year with people taking sides, and forming campaigns for their favourites. Some of the popular contestants from last time include Julie, dance master/actor Gayathri, lyricist Snegan, actor Namitha, actor/model Harish, actor/model Raiza, etc. 

Actor Oviya is one notable example for having gained huge fandom after appearing on the show. She will be appearing as a guest this time around, for a few days. Raiza and Harish have gone to sign films deals post-show. Actor Aarav emerged victorious at the end of the first season, winning Rs 50 lakhs cash prize.
