Bigg Boss Bangla is a reality show based on the Hindi show Bigg Boss which too was based on the original Dutch Big Brother format developed by John de Mol. A number of contestants (known as "housemates") live in a purpose-built house and are isolated from the rest of the world. Each week, housemates nominate two of their peers for eviction, and the housemates who receives 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 Bangla. In the final week, there were three housemates remaining, and the public voted for who they wanted to win. The housemates in the Bengali version are primarily celebrities.
The Bigg Boss House is located in the tourist center of Lonavala, Pune district of Maharashtra. It is well furnished and decorated. It has all kinds of modern amenities, one king size bedroom and one royal bath room. There is a garden, pool, activity area and gym in the House. There is also a Confession Room, where the housemates may be called in by Bigg Boss for any kind of conversation, and for the nomination process. The House has no TV connection, no phones, no Internet connection, clocks, pen or paper.
While all the rules have never been told to the audience, the most prominent ones are clearly seen. The inmates are not permitted to talk in any other language except Bengali. They always have to wear the lapel. They cannot leave the House premises at any time unless they are evicted or decided by Big Boss. They can discuss the nomination process with anyone. They are not allowed to sleep without the permission of Bigg Boss.
The 'Eye' Logo
Each season gets its own Bigg Boss 'Eye' logo similar to the Bigg Boss and Big Brother shows. The first season of Bangla Bigg Boss on ETV Bangla inherited its logo from the sixth season of its Hindi counterpart in the form of a human eye with an eyeball displaying the SMPTE color bars, against a purple, lightning storm background. The second season, got its dedicated logo in the form of a more detailed human eye against a background of purple tornado. This logo also had the text 'Season 2' below the 'Eye' and the tagline for the second season was 'Byata Dumukho'.
