Even on the very first day the drama at the ‘Bigg Boss’ house was quite high. Salman Khan who is now quite comfortable in the shoes of a host, introduced the contestants one by one. Some contestants from last season like Armaan Kohli made appearances. Upen Patel who has a ‘ladies man’ image, struck up conversations with all the female contestants. But later he seemed to be more comfortable with Sukriti than other women. He even gave her a nickname ‘Sukku’. It will be interesting to see what happens between them in future. The contestants were then informed about a ‘secret society’ of 3 members that will be playing a key role in the show. Most members did not seem too happy about it. The society had also blocked the luggage of some of the contestants which they had to get back after answering some questions. Arya Babbar who earlier said that he would miss ‘sex and pizza’ the most was constantly showing his disagreement with the society.

The contestants also took part in a ramp show with the theme of ‘supernatural beings’. They dressed and put on makeup to look like zombies and vampires. Minissha Lamba who was asked about whether she has ever done anything that made her ashamed, made some revelations. She revealed that she once scored only seven out of hundred in a math exam that embarrassed her parents.  With so much happening only on the first day, the rest of the season is sure to become must watch.
