The program is a weekly back-to-basics environment, eviction, weekly work and competition set by Big Boss. It relies on techniques such as the “confession room”. Where housemates put their personal thoughts in front of the camera and reveal their nominees. At regular intervals, home colleagues personally nominate many of their colleagues.
The housemates with the most nominations are then announced, and viewers are given the opportunity to vote (via SMS or online through social media and smartphone applications) for the nominee they wish to be evicted or to be saved from eviction. The last person remaining is declared the winner.
Competitors were required to engage in housework and the creators of the event entrusted them with the task. (Those who are simply known as the “Big Boss” communicate with the housewife through a person of universal authority).
These tasks are designed to test the capabilities of teammates at home and the consciousness of their community. The “luxurious budget” of home colleagues (weekly allowance to buy luxury food items without the requirements provided) depends on the outcome of their assigned work.
