The first season of the reality show on Life OK was a Pandora’s Box of controversies, laughter, good food and drama, but will the second season follow suit?
Welcome – Baazi Mehmaan Nawaazi Ki is a copy of the international show Come Dine With Me. The first season began with much fanfare featuring Ram Kapoor as the host and telly celebrities as contestants. Every week five celebs would host dinner or lunch at their homes, cook the meal, plan entertainment and invite the other four contestants. At the end the dinner, the guests would rate the host and give him/her scores.
The first season was a hit with a lot of gossip, fights, outbursts, tears, drama and melodrama. However the new series, which is set to go on air by March 6, will be tad different. Apparently, there will be no celebrities hosting the dinner. It will be the ‘mango people – aam aadmi’ who will grace the show and cook some really fabulous food.
Now this is exactly how the international version is, but we wonder if the show with no star attraction will work. We initially thought maybe the channel have approached Ram Kapoor again to host the show. However, it seems the makers have not reached Ram to play the host. In fact, the show will have no host at all. No Ram Kapoor and no celebrity contestants – is the show expected to work purely on good and bad cooking? OMG!
Wethinks, the celebrity angle in any show is a crowd puller without which there is truly nothing much to watch in the show. Guess we will have to wait and watch what the channel and the producers of the show have in mind exactly. ‘Coz the moment they realise that the show is not bringing in the desired numbers, they will pull the plug. If you ask us, celebrities add a certain tadka to a reality show, don’t you agree BollywoodLifers?
