Do you watch Bigg Boss/Big Brother show? Can you be in a house with strangers for 100 days?

I never heard of this show. :unsure:

I imagine they would stop being strangers after a few days?  Or are they disagreeable strangers? :O

They are not strangers, celebs actually but there may be one person from the public. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Big_Brother_(U.S._TV_series) . Each language has its own version of the show. In India, Hindi version of the Bigg Boss is running for some time. Recently they have started the Tamil version and everyone talking only about it here. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bigg_Boss_Tamil

I never heard of the US version either.  But I don't watch reality shows, so it isn't surprising. :)

I am afraid that I can't help, as I don't like TV reality shows (I saw a few - and some analyses - at the very beginning of this trend, and they were not so good).

All these Big Brother and similar games (though started with the best intentions) were often going beyond their real aims, hurting ethics, youth, and shaming candidates, public and cultures. (And honestly, celebrities on shopping tour or at parties might be interesting for scandal papers, but there is a big difference between superficial activities and people - famous or not - talking and speaking about life, experience, arts, feelings, etc.). As to the Big Boss shows, there have been shows with bosses, acting undercover, and spying on employees. Well - that is what we have seen on the European side ...

Some were perhaps good, but I heard too many negative echoes.

:'(:unsure::wassat: -

but there is still some hope! :)

I don't watch much TV but I've not heard of it here before. I looked it up and didn't see that it had been aired here. But to answer part of your question? Don't think I could handle being cooped up in any house with 100 people unless they were all good looking women! Then I would probably have a heart attack but what a way to go!

There will be like 7 girls and 8 boys. There will be cameras everywhere in the house and everything will get recorded and broadcasted. If you want to win then you have to stay 90-100 days. You have to nominate 3 persons every week for elimination and one of them will get eliminated (the rules can be little bit different). Others will nominate you too.

Dan, such games are raising conflicts, deceit and grudges. I don't think that under such circumstances, certain mentalities can change for the better.

Of course, the public of such games wants to see blood, tears and scandals.

I'm watching the Tamil version of the show here. It is a sadic program, sometimes all contesters gang up against one. That what people like to watch and that's why the show is hit in all languages. The show helps to know the real personality and attitude of a person/celeb.

Marianne Rooster Jul 11, 2017

Yes, Dan, that is even perverse, and young people might learn from the wrong examples - you mentioned behaviours which correspond to hypocrisy, mobbing and violence.

And will you really see the true personality of people, if they are desperate - or if they are faking?


Dan Rooster Jul 11, 2017

Yes, viewers can see who is faking. Like, when a housemate acts good to other housemate but talks against at the back. Since they are together for 100 days, you can see their real personalities.
