It’s the seventh week in the Bigg Boss Tamil house. With Oviya’s unfortunate exit and Julie’s eviction last week, the happenings in the house with eight contestants (Shakthi, Gayathri, Ganesh Venkatraman, Bindu Madhavi, Raiza, Aarav, Vaiyapuri), so far, lack excitement and have become mundane over the past three episodes.
Understandably, the social media traction has also gradually slowed down, with meme-makers sparing no effort to extract the best jokes at the expense of those contestants currently in the house.
“Bigg Boss house completely transformed Oviya’s character,” says Raiza
Raiza, who has hitherto displayed a devil-may-care attitude in the house, has become more expressive after the exit of Julie and Oviya. Discussing Oviya’s exit with Snehan, Raiza said, “There is a huge difference between the Oviya I saw in the first week and the way she behaved in the last week. This house completely transformed her character.”
“Aarav must have fallen in love with Oviya. That’s why she would have decided to take the relationship forward and took Aarav seriously. But, Shakthi continuously badmouthed Oviya to Aarav, which made him stay away from her. And Oviya couldn’t tolerate this since Aarav was not acting on his own. It’s really bad,” added Raiza.
Snehan said he would like to ask Aarav if he had let go of Oviya just to be in the good books of Shakthi, Gayathri, and Julie. “But, I don’t think I’ll confront Aarav. It’s needless I feel,” said Snehan.
Meanwhile, Shakthi told Aarav that he should have handled Oviya with a little more care. “I didn’t do anything wrong. In fact, we never discussed anything about love or whatsoever,” said Aarav, to which Gayathri replied: “From a girl’s point of view, a kiss is an assurance that you’re in love.”
Ganesh Venkatraman apologises to Bharani on behalf of housemates
Ganesh Venkatraman felt apologetic about Bharani’ unfavourable exit and his dangerous attempt to quit the house by climbing the wall. “Only when Kamal Haasan sir asked about your departure, I felt how inhuman it was (sic). It was really cruel behaviour from all of us. We’re sorry about it. You’re part of the family, and we should have handled the issue differently. The way we approached it and dealt with the problem was completely wrong. I’m expressing this apology from the bottom of my heart. I hope to see you soon when I come out,” said Ganesh Venkatraman.
Tedious luxury budget task irks housemates
Bigg Boss assigns a tedious luxury budget task to housemates, dividing the housemates into two groups: While Snehan, Aarav, Raiza, and Bindu form team A, Gayathri, Ganesh, Vaiyapuri, and Sakthi belong to group B.
According to the task, Bigg Boss converts the lawn area into the ‘Bigg Boss Washing Centre’ where contestants should wash the stained clothes provided by Bigg Boss. After washing the clothes properly, they need to iron and pack them in a cover. Raiza and Shakthi are appointed as quality check officers to gauge the work of the opposing teams. However, during the task, each team should not share any washing products. Be it detergent or soap; they need to work with their respective teams.
On Tuesday, team A outperforms team B and wins the task. Bigg Boss provides them 450 points and announces team A as the winner of the day. However, the inmates begin to feel that the task is tiresome and discuss the same during dinner.
Restless Vaiyapuri wants to go home
Vaiyapuri feels anxious about the task and laments before the cameras: “The sun is scorching hot out there. I’ve struggled all my life and have come here. Now why I should again fight in this house? Please send me home. I can’t tolerate this cruel task anymore.”
In a message to his wife, Vaiyapuri tells he has learned a lot over the past 45 days and that he will be a ‘new husband’ when he comes home and take care of the regular chores alongside her.
An outspoken Vaiyapuri also politely advised Ganesh Venkatraman to not be self-centered in the house. “You’re almost perfect. But whenever there is a problem or something, be involved. Discuss with other inmates. Start a conversation. We feel that you’re in your world doing yoga, meditation, and work outs. Don’t feel offended. I’m telling you all this as my brother,” said Vaiyapuri.
Bigg Boss replaces the washing task with a new one
Listening to the woes of each contestant, Bigg Boss finally decided to call off the tedious washing task. Instead, he introduced a new task where each inmate is requested to narrate a horror story from their real-life experiences in front of everyone in the living room.
The absence of the most talked-about contestants like Oviya and Julie is quite palpable, and it would be interesting to see how the show pans out this week. Now, viewers are eagerly waiting for the weekend episodes, where Kamal Haasan will appear.
