The first series of Bigg Boss began on 3 November2006, and ended on 26 January2007. It was broadcast on Sony Entertainment Television. The host of this series was Bollywood actor Arshad Warsi.



Fourteen (originally twelve) celebrities, along with a hidden spy (later revealed to be Ragini Shetty), entered the inside the Big Boss house for 12 weeks with only a suitcase of luggage each. The contestants had to cook and clean by themselves - they did not have access to domestic help or stylists.

Tasks were set by Bigg Boss each week. The housemates were allowed to gamble on task outcomes, and were rewarded with extra money to order more supplies if they won.

As with most versions of Big Brother, each week, the housemates had to nominate two of their peers for eviction. They were required to give reasons for their nominations. The housemates with the most nominations then faced eviction that week, with the evictee being decided by a public vote. Television TOP TEN
