We reported in January that COLOR’s controversial reality TV show Bigg Boss will lose its celebs-only tag from this year, the show’s tenth season. The first promo of Bigg Boss 10, which was released recently, confirms our worst fear: Looks like the show’s big-ticket host, Bollywood star Salman Khan, too, will be out of the show.
The show’s first promo invited the general public to send their entries for participation in Bigg Boss 10. The 35-second-long video shows a guy in a heated argument with the umpire during a gulli-cricket match, following which Bigg Boss invites him to be a part of the show. “Apka ye andaz aapko Bigg Boss ke ghar me winner bana sakta hai. India, ise apna hi ghar samjho! ”

Host Salman Khan is missing from the promo, raising fears that he may not be a part of the show this year. However, a report in DNA says the Bajrangi Bhaijaan star will definitely host Bigg Boss 10. Elaborating on the celeb and non-celeb feature, the report quoted a source as saying, “It’s not just non-celebrities. It is a mix. There will be some known faces and some unknown faces.”
Talking about the new format, COLORS CEO Raj Nayak had earlier said, “Bigg Boss as a show is like a study in human psychology. One can learn so much about human behaviour through the actions of the housemates in a given situation. As we take on this interesting content innovation, we look forward to receiving some interesting entries from our increasing viewer base.”
If you wish to enter the Bigg Boss house, post a three-minute video that highlights the traits you think will hold you in a good stead in the competition on the channel’s official website. The entries will be accepted till May 31.
Bigg Boss is a reality TV show based on the lines of the British show Big Brother. The show’s format keeps participants locked inside a house for three months.
