BiggBoss7 Logo

On launch night, Bigg Boss announced that seven of the housemates will be moved to Heaven and the remaining shall stay in Hell. The responsibility to decide which housemate goes to which area was given to the first two entrants Tanisha and Andy by Bigg Boss. On day 31, the hell section was completely destroyed and all the housemates living there were moved to the heaven area which was later announced to be the main house from that point onwards.[5]

Heaven

The heaven side of the house has a pool and a beach like feel and also has a portion that has a dome like ceiling designed to look like a skyline filled with clouds. The walls of the house are not only colorful but also have words like ‘crazy’ written on it with much flair. It also has a quote written on a wall that is the highlight of the living area. The house also includes a wash basin with a cycle. For the first time in the history of Bigg Boss, the house has a clock in the living room.[6]

Hell

The hell side of the house has beds arranged on the floor but not much of a comfort to any of the contestants. The house is separated by a fence. There is one gate which is connected to the heaven side. Food is a big concern for the contestants as participants in this area do not have a kitchen. As per an announcement by bigg boss all the food is prepared by heaven living mates for themselves and for hell living mates. Also there is no demarcation between the bedroom and living area and will give the house a dormitory kind of a look. The toilets inside the hell half have only Indian style sitting and the water is to be filled manually and used for all daily chores from a tap planted outside.[6]

Circumspection between Houses

According to the concept of Heaven and Hell, and the boundary between two houses, Bigg Boss orders some strictures among inmates of both houses. With these orders, Inmates are unable to cross the boundary of each other places without the permission of Bigg Boss, No one can give anything from heaven side to hell or vice versa in any condition, but, they can share only food which is the basic necessity of both inmates and as hellmates have no kitchen and all the responsibility of food is of heavenmates.[6]

Bigg Boss Warden

The Bigg Boss Warden was a new feature for season seven. She monitored inmates and kept them on time[6]

Bigg Boss Caravan

The Bigg Boss Caravan was revealed on Day 42. It was a motor vehicle with living space. The caravan had five beds and a small open area. The inmates of the caravan were isolated from the world and also from the contestants living in the main Bigg Boss house. The caravan inmates were shown 24/7 live feed from the main Bigg Boss house on the TV set in the Caravan. On Day 42 two new entrants Ajaz and Candy entered the Bigg Boss Caravan. They were moved to the main Bigg Boss house on day 45 and Andy was sent from the main house to the caravan. New entrant Sofia joined him in the Caravan.

  1. ^ All the house specifications were given by the first two entrants (Tanisha & Andy) as per the order of Bigg Boss, and the decision for allotment of Tanisha and Andy was opposite to the second last entrants to their allotment, according to Bigg Boss orders.
  2. ^ Bigg Boss asked the heaven housemates to choose from among them a housemate who is, according to them, ineligible to live on the heaven side. The housemate with the maximum votes is made to swap places with a decided housemate from the hell side inmates. Gauhar, receiving the majority votes, was made to switch sides with Armaan.
  3. ^ Housemates decided by mutual consensus the names of the two housemates, from both sides, they would like to move. Hell housemates chose Gauhar and Kushal and heaven housemates Andy and Sangram.
  4. ^ Bigg Boss asked housemates from both sides to decide by mutual consensus the name of one best and worst performer from their side. All inmates except the worst performer, from hell, and the best performer, from heaven, were made to switch sides. All housemates except Shilpa and Elli switched sides.
  5. ^ Bigg Boss asked Kamya, being the house captain and immune from house-side switch, to name one housemate from heaven who had the greatest contribution in the luxury budget task. Simultaneously Armaan was to name two hell housemates who contributed the least in the task. Kamya chose Andy and Armaan himself and Kushal. All housemates except the names ones were to swap sides. However during the swap ceremony Bigg Boss asked each switching hell housemate to swap positions with one heaven inmate. Pratyusha, after not being chosen by any hell-mate was spared the switch. Later, using the wishing wall, Kamya, Pratyusha and Tanisha wished for Armaan to be transferred to heaven. Bigg Boss fulfilling the wish asked these three to name one housemate to swap Armaan with. They chose Andy.
  6. ^ All hell mates were shifted to the heaven side as the hell was completely destroyed. Bigg Boss also announced that the heaven side was the "Bigg Boss House" now.
  7. ^ Two new contestants (Ajaz & Candy) entered the Bigg Boss Caravan.[89]
  8. ^ Ajaz and Candy were first shifted to the Main House. Later, Andy was moved to the Bigg Boss Caravan as he was earlier selected by the captain (Kushal) for discussing and plotting nominations (12,13) which was a violation of Bigg Boss rule. New contestant Sofia also entered the Caravan.
  9. ^ Andy was moved back to the Main House along with Sofia.

Vote to move

Working with the new concept of "Heaven" and "Hell", Heaven housemates were on occasion asked to vote for a housemate who should swap places with a housemate in Hell. After the second week, such switches were no longer according to vote but instead decided by the outcome of the luxury budget task.

The task for this week was named 'Amdani,Atthani,Kharcha,Rupiya' (Income,Penny,Expenditure,Rupee).Hell housemates had to print Bigg Boss bills to buy any item (food) they needed from the Heaven side,and heaven-mates could sell them on any price they wished.The task lasted two days and whichever side had more money than the other at the end would be declared winner.The heaven-mates were also provided with a lock safe where they had to put all the money. Armaan had to provide Bigg Boss a 100 bills secretly as he had failed to complete a punishment the previous day. Gauhar and Asif were also given a secret task to steal the money from the safe but they failed as heaven-mates stored the money in another place.As a punishment from Bigg Boss,heaven side's money was reduced drastically.The hell side ended up winning by a huge margin and as a result, had stalls set up on their side where they could buy anything with the money they had gathered.

5 15 October 2013
(Day 30)
This week's luxury budget task was titled 'Shaitan aur Farishtey' (Devils & Angels),where the hell-mates portrayed devils and the heaven-mates angels. Bigg Boss had placed a total of 5 Golden Badges on the heaven side and the hell-mates had to try and replace them with their Dark Badges.Only two hell-mates could try once and captain Gauhar was given the responsibility to overlook the task and make sure it went according to the rules.The hell-mates ended up replacing all Golden badges on the first day and hence won. Bigg Boss later announced that the task wasn't over yet,as the hell-mates had captured heaven side,the heaven side could only use their side with permissions from them. Bigg Boss also arranged a court in the house later where each member could accuse another from opposite side had they felt something went unfair. The next day saw the elimination of Hell side and as there were limited beds on the Heaven side,Bigg Boss allowed hell-mates to sleep on them as a reward for their win. Bigg Boss rewarded a total of 2500 luxury points and only the winning team could come up with the list, but they failed to do so within the allowed time period and hence ended up losing all the points. Failed Passed</span>

  • ^note 9 : Shilpa was given a special power to nominate one housemate which will place them directly up for eviction.
  • ^note 10 : Due to the misbehaviour of Tanisha towards Kushal in the Luxury Budget Task, and due to this Kushal trying to get out of the house,Bigg Boss nominated both of them.
  • ^note 11 : The winning team in the Luxury Budget Task and the captain had to nominate two people for eviction.
  • ^note 12 : For Week 7 nominations, Bigg Boss asked the captain to name five contestants who were discussing and plotting nominations which was a violation of Bigg Boss rule.
  • ^note 13 : Out of the five the captain had to select one such person who discussed the most and he would be directly evicted at a later date.

Controversies

  • On the launch night, immediately after Kushal Tandon's arrival, Tanisha and Andy were asked to decide which side they would like to place Kushal. Having found the decision tough to execute VJ Andy tried to base the solution on who he would like to share a bed with due to the lack of single beds on the heaven side. Right before Andy could announce his decision Kushal interrupted him saying that he doesn't want to share mattress with Andy and would rather share it with a female housemate. A flurry of comments on microblogging site twitter soon began to pour in terming Kushal as homophobe.[101] The media analysing the actor's statement further reoriented the audience's attention towards the topic claiming it to be verging on bigotry and an insult to the LGBT community. Colors Viacom received around 560 complaints overnight regarding the issue.[102][103]
