According to an insider, the entries will be judged on various levels. “People will be asked why they want to be in the Bigg Boss house. They will also need to list out their talents and reveal what they would do with the prize money if they were to win. The online process also lets you upload videos and photographs. Once the data is collated, it will be followed by a series of interviews by the channel and the production house (Endemol) leading to a shortlist.”
In the past, the show made headlines with its rather colourful brigade of profanity-spewing celebrity contestants such as Dolly Bindra, Rakhi Sawant and Kashmira Shah, just to name a few. This season, it will be interesting to see how a regular person will survive the three-month period with his/her every move tracked by omnipresent cameras.
After all, fame does come with a price.
