The 4th week of Bigg Boss Tamil ended on a highly surprising note, with Harathi eliminated from the show after losing the support of viewers. Harathi’s unpleasantly condescending attitude attracted a lot of hate on the Internet where social media warriors ridiculed her to death.
Following Rajinikanth and Kamal Haasan’s dance marathon on the first two days of the third week, contestants were asked by Bigg Boss to groove to the foot-tapping songs of Thala (Ajith)-Thalapathy (Vijay) as a part of the luxury budget task. Ganesh Venkatraman chose Harathi as the best performer at the end of the luxury budget task, which makes her eligible to contest for house captain next week along with Sakthi, who was earlier nominated unanimously by inmates.
Haasan reiterated that Bigg Boss is a social experiment to let people understand the merits of solidarity and being together under one roof. Kamal Haasan took everyone to task by posting a lot of uncomfortable questions this week, which laid bare the real face of inmates. The answers given by the contestants and the kind of issues discussed by Haasan will certainly lead to a lot of unrest in the house for the next few days.
Bigg Boss Tamil (arriving years after the Kannada and Malayalam versions) has had an immediate and stunning ripple effect. The participants maybe locked up but the madness of the Bigg Boss house has escaped across the land. The massive viewership of Bigg Boss Tamil has led to a flurry of troll pages on Facebook and Twitter, and troll channels on YouTube. Anybody dismissing these videos with an eye roll and a “whatever”, clearly is not in any family WhatsApp groups.
