Bigg Boss Tamil season 5 launched on October 3 and is nearing the end of its second week's run, with 'Ulaganayagan' Kamal Haasan hosting the show for the fifth consecutive time. The hit Tamil reality show airing on Vijay TV and streaming on DisneyPlus Hotstar is once again witnessing a strong viewership as the ongoing edition was launched with eighteen contestants in comparison the usual format of sixteen. With the second week of Bigg Boss Tamil 5 coming to a conclusion on Sunday, fans are eagerly waiting to see who will be the first contestant to be evicted from the show. 

The participants in Bigg Boss 5 now are Abhinay Vaddi, Abishek Raaja, Akshara Reddy, Chinnaponnu, Ciby Chandran, Imman Annachi, Isaivani, Iykki Berry, Madhumitha, Nadia Chang, Niroop Nandakumar, Pavani Reddy, Priyanka Deshpande, Raju Jeyamohan, Sruthi Jeyadevan, Thamarai Selvi and Varun. It is to be noted that Namitha Marimuthu had left the show last week due to unexpected reasons and her exit had come as a shock to many. That said, Vijay TV has now released the first promo for Saturday showing host Kamal Haasan talking about how audiences have watched the struggles of the contestants, including hearing their personal stories. He further states that 15 contestants in the show have been nominated for elimination this week and their eviction depends on the votes of the audiences. So far, there have been only a few instances where the contestants went up against each other as things have been relatively calm. However, we can expect drama in the days ahead after the first eviction takes place this week as the competitive nature in all the contestants will set in.
