Bigg Boss 14: Contestants Will Not Be Paid Weekly; Elimination To Take Place On Basis Of Hygiene Considering COVID-19 Crisis?
We all remember the madness that Bigg Boss 13 bought along with it! The show was such a big hit that the makers even extended it for almost two extra months. Well, now it's time for its next season. For the past few days, whispers are being heard that the makers of the controversial show are gearing up to launch Bigg Boss 14. However, there are many challenges given the current COVID-19 crisis. The makers seem to have brought a lot of changes in the process to keep up with the pandemic.

As per a report in Pinkvilla, contestants won't be paid on a weekly basis like previous seasons. Plus, the eliminations can be on the basis of hygiene and temperature checks of the contestants. A source informed the portal, "While every year contestants get paid weekly, this season contestants will be signed on a pre-decided budget and won't be paid weekly. Due to the financial crunch, the show will have 5 popular faces with the lesser-known ones. Given the high amount of uncertainty involved, if in any situation the reality show is stalled in between, the production won't pay for the episodes which didn't happen. A contestant can be eliminated basis of their hygiene, and their temperatures will be checked on a daily basis. If a contestant falls ill, he will be disqualified, but the show won't pay them. Contestants with good immunity will only be taken."

Earlier, reports had it that stars like Rajeev Sen and Adhyayan Suman have been approached for Bigg Boss 14. But both the stars took to their respective social media accounts to state that they are not going to enter the controversial house this season.


Though the list of contestants hasn't been shared yet, one thing is certain that Salman Khan will be returning as the host of the show. (Also Read: Bigg Boss 14: This Salman Khan Show Will NOT Approach Celebrities With 'Travel History' In The Wake Of COVID-19 Outbreak?)
