10 Reasons Why Bigg Boss 8 is a Scripted Reality Show

10 Reasons Why Bigg Boss 8 is a Scripted Reality Show

10 min

Bigg Boss viewers always wonder if the show is scripted or not. We also asked some ex-contestants the same. To which all agreed that the show is not scripted at all. But the conditions in which they all are put surely make the show scripted. For example, they will put contestants who don’t like each other in opposite teams in tasks. So that they can fight more. Now coming back to the title, we think the show is absolutely scripted. I will make completely logical reasoning of my statement. Go ahead and read why Bigg Boss 8 is a scripted reality show and Salman Khan is biased towards some contestants.

1. They love They love Gauti!

Eight season of Bigg Boss is the most biased season of the show ever! The show is blindly favouring Gautam Gulati. Taking from tasks to praising of host Salman Khan. In starting of the show, every contestant was treated equally. After Karishma and Gautam’s fight, we saw Gautam Gulati for 25 minutes and other contestants for rest of 25 minutes in each episode for many weeks.

Even the host Salman Khan made Gautam Gulati hero of the show. Salman was seen praising him and P3G many weeks in spite of the fact that they were bitching against co-contestants most of the time.

And Bigg Boss Khabri (official blogger of the show) is openly favouring Gautam Gulati in her blogs. And even on Bigg Boss’s official website, you will see Gautam Gulati everywhere.

2. Karishma’s Make-up

Gautam Gulati and Karishma Tanna who are biggest enemies of each others were called for a task. And all housemates were shown the live telecast. The result to this task was going to be so obvious! One of these was going to become a villain and they succeeded! Karishma Tanna became villain because she asked for her make-up. Yes she was selfish, but Bigg Boss took it to another level. In the App task, Bigg Boss tricked her to choose her make-up. But house mates again made her look the villain. And they blamed Karishma for loosing luxury budget task. When in real, Renee who didn’t charge battery was the reason behind it.

3. Jaane Nahi Denge Tujhe!

Sonali Raut who was evicted from the show in very first week due to least public votes made a comeback in just three days. Then Puneet Issar, who was thrown out from the show for violence against co-contestant (Arya Babbar) re-entered in the show in just a day of getting evicted. Why? Because he was giving content to the show. He is one of the most negative contestants of the show after all.

Bal Ka Prayog!

When violence on a co-contestant is against the rules of the show, why Sonali wasn’t removed from the show after slapping co-contestant Ali Quli Mirza? And even after making a come back, Puneet Issar used Bal Ka Prayog (force) against Karishma Tanna. Puneet got violent on Gautam Gulati, Arya Babbar, Praneet Bhatt and Karishma Tanna. But he is still there in the show. Why?

4. Do they even count votes?

Have you seen single contestant who is aggressive and keep fighting leaving Bigg Boss 8 till now? All peacemakers, calm and composed ones and positive contestants are out of the show. Minissha Lamba, Arya Babbar, Sushant Divgikar, Nigaar Khan, Sukirti Kandpal and many more are out of the show because they were not creating issues out of everything. And Puneet Issar, Gautam Gulati, Dimpy and Karishma Tanna are still in there. Because they are aggressive ones and are always in limelight for one of the other issue. Are Indians fool that they will vote for negative contestants? No. It’s all about TRP. I highly doubt if they are even considering public votes! And besides I am following the show from last six seasons, I have never voted nor do I know a single person who has voted for a reality show.

Praneet Bhatt, who was recently evicted from the house was believed to be the potential finalists on the season. But due to less drama inside the house, he had to say goodbye. Every guest celebrity entering in the house knew Diandra Soares. She is a very well known personality in the industry. She was even giving content to the show (Remember Gautam- Diandra’s make out in bathroom?) but she got evicted. Why? Because she was harming image of Gautam Gulati (hero of BB8) in the show. So she had to say bye bye to the show. Can you believe Dimpy Mahajan (known for marrying a guy who got known because of his father) got more votes than Diandra Soares?

5. The Nutella Topic

Gautam Gulati took Nutella from luxury budget of housemates and said that it was gifted by someone when they were sent to a mall for luxury budget shopping. He actually stole the Nutella and then lied about it to contestants. Praneet Bhatt, Pritam Singh and Upen Patel raised this topic in bedroom. And Karishma Tanna adder her point. And when Salman Khan asked Karishma about her being selfish, she said everyone is selfish giving example of Gautam stealing Nutella. But then all housemates and the show makers took it in the different direction. They showed it like Karishma was the only one to raise the Nutella topic.

Gautam on a day before stealing Nutella, had stolen two packets of Milk. Why Salman Khan didn’t raise that topic?

6. Snapdeal callers & the IQ Test

Have you ever seen a Snapdeal caller calling Gautam, Puneet or Dimpy? They three have made many mistakes on the show. But no Snapdeal caller is seen bashing any of them as they bash other contestants. When Praneet and Pritam were in P3G, even they were safe from these calls. The day they got out of P3G, both got calls.

The IQ test

Salman Khan asked most of the questions to Karishma Tanna, Sonali Raut and Upen Patel in IQ test. Karishma Tanna was targeted in the quiz. If the show is unbiased, Salman should have asked equal number of questions to every contestant. Karishma’s memes are now being exchanged on Whatsapp; thanks to Salman Khan.

7. Gautam City

Everything else is understood but what do you think about the task “Gautam City”? Gautam, who has fought with each and every contestant on the show was made dictator of the house and everyone was made to follow him. A task dedicated to a contestant. How fair is it?

And Gautam is constantly being warned about his image. First his mother came during a task, then his friends Rahul Mahajan and Sambhavna Seth entered in the house and gave him some tips, then his brother came and badmouthed Karishma & Upen. Tourists came during task, Snapdeal caller and recent wild-card Ajaz Khan also warned him about his image outside. That’s not all. Rahul Mahajan and Sambhavna Seth (two good friends of Gautam) are again entering in the show as wild-card for extended month of the show. Two out of five wild-cards are Gautam’s friends. Wow!

This is all digestible, but what do you think about Diandra bashing Karishma & Upen and praising Gautam? Diandra Soares who got evicted from the show few weeks back was sent again in the house during a task. Diandra was seen with Karishma Tanna and Upen Patel in entire season. Karishma and Upen were like her best friends on the show. And she had criticized Gautam during her eviction for not accepting relationship with her on TV. But when she entered in the show during freeze task, she spoke ill about her best friends and praised Gautam! How are we supposed to believe that that wasn’t scripted? Remember date setup in garden area (roses and coffee) during her visit? How would Bigg Boss know if she was gonna take Gautam outside to have a discussion? That only proves that everything Diandra said during that visit was scripted!

8. Hero & villain

Bigg Boss is known to have a villain in the show each season. This time contestants are positive comparing to previous seasons, so they are creating villains in the house.

As I said earlier, Gautam Gulati is made hero of the show. Whatever he does, he gets praised at last. Gautam stole food. He bitched about each contestant on the show. He has fought with each contestant of the show. He ditched girls on national television. He flirted with Diandra at the beginning, then fought with her. Then started flirting Sonali, and fought with her. Again started flirting with Diandra. Got a kiss from her in the bathroom and when he thought he has got enough footage, he again ditched Diandra. But anyway, he is hero of the show. At least for the show makers.

Karishma Tanna is being shown as the villain. Be it the make-up issue or the Nutella issue or the App task. In the App task, Bigg Boss tricked her into choosing her make up. And house mates thought she is the villain. Even Salman Khan, the host is bashing her every weekend unnecessarily.

In captaincy of Karishma, Bigg Boss showed footage of housemates breaking rules in the house (sleeping in a daytime, speaking in English, etc) and nominated all for eviction. And with that he also said that if we collect such footage from entire season, it will take another season to watch all of them. Which clearly meant, house mates have been breaking rules from day one. But again Karishma Tanna got trapped. Karishma was seen giving her best, but Salman Khan again questioned Karishma’s ability as a captain! He said Karishma is responsible for nomination of all contestants. If housemates wouldn’t have broken rules, they were not have nominated. How come Karishma is responsible for that Mr Khan?

A recent tweet from Dale Bhagwagar (Sonali Raut’s PR)

Dale has handled PR of many contestants of Bigg Boss including Sonali Raut, Aarya Babbar and Rahul Mahajan of season eight.

9. P3G ka The End!

And even for breaking of P3G group, only Bigg Boss is responsible. In captaincy of Pritam, they called Pritam in the confession room and asked him to nominate five contestants for the eviction. They weren’t even going to evict someone in that week but they showed Pritam’s conversation with Bigg Boss live to rest housemates. Which was obviously going to led to the end of P3G.

10. The Biased Host

Salman Khan is undoubtedly biased towards some set of contestants. Salman bashes Karishma Tanna and Upen Patel unnecessarily every week. Gautam Gulati fought hundreds of time in the show and Puneet Issar got violent multiple time on the show. But all Salman Khan talks about is Karishma’s make up. When Gautam ditched Diandra on television, Karishma’s favoritism for her friends was bigger issue for Mr Khan. Salman is constantly seen praising Gautam and Ali on the show.

There are many such reasons, but I listed 10 reasons which clearly states that Bigg Boss is scripted show and the host Salman Khan is biased towards some contestants in the show. If you know more reasons, you can add them in comments.
