  6. Honourable Sir,
    First of the show was very very excellent.
    That too u r leading it is a main highlight which hits
    I would like to share my comments
    1. Gayathri as a leader she should visit in person to resolve the issue. She is sharing others personal chats with other & insulting them. A leader should not have this type culture.
    2. In the running show Ovia is best lady in all types
    3. In gents Ganesh venkatram & Viyapuri is the best person
    Thnks Vijaya Tv & Sri Kamal hasan Sir for giving this opportunity.
    My wishes to all bigg boss fmly members

  7. Gayathri & Julie big irritating Kick out both of them not fit for big boss Oviya is best & good girl,
    Raiza is very show off i hate her the way she acts,

  8. Oviya, as hindsight would reveal, was susceptible to depression and was waiting for the trigger. i very much doubt it was an act and if it really was then hats off to her acting skills. Coming into BB after a successful acting career, there was tremendous pressure on her to outperform her roommates. She came into the play with a set programme that went awry. Unfortunately, she got bitten by an unrequited love bug that triggered a bout of depression. BB should not have prolonged her stay (which raises the doubt about it being an act) especially when Snehan was pleading with the Boss to take Oviya out of the contest for providing Psychiatric treatment. Hopefully, she hasn’t suffered any long term damage to her psyche. In as much as she seemed out of place as a contestant for most watchers, Oviya represented the quintessential fun loving Gen Y that is desperately trying to break the stranglehold of the conservative Tamil Gen x. That explains the support base for her. I wont be surprised if she makes a wild card entry into the sets.
