Bigg Boss’s seventh season finale took place Saturday night. While the channel has been able to keep the buzz going and the audience involved, this season, we were surprised when through the day there were congratulatory messages on social media confidently claiming Gauahar Khan to be the winner. While people of India were busy spending their money sending smses for their favourite amongst the four finalists, they were obviously oblivious to the fact that the winner in reality seemed to have already been decided and that reality television was in reality not that real. The channel insists that these are just speculations. Whether what they say is true or not, one thing is for sure – Reality TV is not that real. We believe it does not take away from either the popularity or viewership of the show by being honest, though it may reduce some mobile revenues.
While the speculation continues, here’s what the channel, Colors, has to say…
The world seemed to know that Gauahar was the winner two days before the finale. How did that happen?
It’s completely because of fans that have enjoyed watching Gauahar inside the Bigg Boss house. She has been a very strong contender from the beginning and made it to the end, surviving all evictions. Social media responds to buzz and speculates every year. Lots of people kept saying Tanishaa will win and some Sangram. Everyone has their favourites. The winner or loser of the show is in the hands of our viewers. As a responsible broadcaster we follow a very fair selection process where the results and tabulated and declared by Ernst & Young.
People on social media said it with authority that she had won and they even declared the sequence of the runners-up.
Gauahar had a sizeable lead over her closest competitor. As far as runners-up are concerned, everyone is entitled to their own views. Speculations are always on the rise across social networks during the grand finale of any reality show.
What about allegations of the show being scripted and some participants being given a role to play? Also, reality shows in india have always been under the scanner….
There have been numerous speculations about the show being scripted. However, last year, we opened doors of the Bigg Boss house to the public so that they could see, first-hand, the contestants and judge for themselves. Additionally, we have also introduced a 24×7 live feed that gives audiences a constant view of the happenings.
