Are the fights on ‘Bigg Boss 5′ actually fake?

We’ve always suspected that reality shows are not all that real. The shoots we’ve attended have also proved that to us. So why does it still surprise us when ex-Bigg Boss housemates Kamaal R Khan and Payal Rohatgi claim that the reality show is scripted?

The whispers about reality shows actually being fake have been doing the rounds ever since the first show aired – Indian Idol, Kaun Banega Crorepati, 10 Ka Dum and Khatron Ke Khiladi have all been victims of this criticism. The latest to join this infamous list is reality show Bigg Boss 5.

Kamaal R Khan tweeted way back on November 21 that Pooja Bedi would be the next one eliminated from the Bigg Boss House. ‘This week Pooja Bedi will be out,’ he tweeted, also insisting on this to a TV reporter. And she did get out five days later. Once Pooja Bedi and Pooja Misrra were evicted, he tweeted again, ‘I think it is mistake of #BiggBoss there was not so much violence tat Pooja Mishra shud go out. Sometime bb use different rule 4 difrnt ppl And this is why sometime ppl havedoubt tat #BiggBoss is a scripted show. BB shud be fair with each and every contestant. Vindu pushed me more than tat in #BiggBoss3 but bigg boss didn’t take any action because he was Akshay’s recommended candidate.’ Now Payal Rohatgi has come up with a similar claim, ‘Heard mahesh bhatt signed the porn star in bigg boss. And he was talking about not being hypocrite. Hope indian audiences like this. Bigg boss 5 is changing its rules accordingly to its own whims. So now I think its getting scripted as they change their rules for trps,’ she tweeted.

Bigg Boss’ main competition till a couple of weeks ago was Kaun Banega Crorepati 5, and claims of that show being scripted too have been doing the rounds ever since a guy from Bihar won Rs 5 crore. Many believe that it was deliberately planned to boost the show’s ratings. In the first season of the show, many felt that the Rs 1 crore winner had been fed the answers beforehand. Of course, you may just call it a case of sour grapes, with those not making it to the jackpot spreading the rumours. Obviously the channelwallahs will claim that everything is as real as it comes. The same kind of allegations had been made against Dus Ka Dum too. How can anyone accurately guess ‘Kitne pratishat bharatiya…‘ (percentage of Indians) have a certain viewpoint? Many did on the show and went on to win some dum-daar amounts of money. Abhijeet Sawant, who won the first Indian Idol, faced similar criticism after his victory. That criticism received a lot of justification when Rahul Vaidya, who lost to Abhijeet, defeated the Idol winner in Jo Jeeta Wohi Superstar four years later. But since it was Rahul who did most of the tom-tomming, his claims lost their spark.

If we know all this, why do we still hold our breath as Sushil Kumar attempts the Rs 5 crore question? Wonder with Pooja Misrra if she’ll get evicted? Vote furiously for our fave singer? ‘Cause that’s the magic of reality television!

Coming back to it, can we say Bigg Boss 5 is scripted? Kamal predicted in his tweet on Tuesday, “Sharadha will be out this week.” Let’s wait and watch whether the Sharma gal (despite the spelling, we are sure he means Shraddha) will really exit the house this weekend. Then we’ll know for sure. Meanwhile, why don’t you tell us what you think?

    I also guess every time who’s gonna be out this Saturday. And it’s always right. I believe it’s depend who is nominated in front of who.. And how famous they are out and how much drama they create in side the house.of course sky will not go cause he is trouble maker, sunny will not go.. Cause Indian ppl..always tooooooo nice to out sider, shardha is ok ok..not too much drama.. So ppl will vote her out. And I so believe tht mhake will win the show, cause salman can fans will vote her, cause the is salman khans girl.

    It is sooooooo SCRIPTED, but nevertheless its entertaining… So far as i have predicted contestants are evicted, but PM was a shocker was not expecting that…But I knew she was not going to WIN… We watch shows for its drama, do you thing you would have been satisfied with everyone getting along so well with no problems?… then no1 would watch the shows as it would have been boring… ITS ENTERTAINMENT, you are forced to get involved in the debate whether you agree or disagree… Vote or don’t vote… its the MAGIC of TELEVISION… and the makers of BB are not stupid… Like it or not… you are still watching the programme or commenting on it after reading a article about it…Whatever the case you are aware of the show and the contestant and who got evicted, interviews b4 and after and so on… ALL news GOOD or BAD is still NEWS for the SHOW and therefore, ppl will still take about it…
