The Bigg Boss Tamil season 4 had started back on 4 October with Haasan introducing a total of 16 contestants into the house. Apart from Aari, Balaji and Rio Raj, Ramya Pandian and Som Shekar also made it to the finals but were eliminated on the last day.
Keeping the finalists aside, the other members who entertained the audience with their performance in the tasks and antics to keep the show interesting were Jithan Ramesh, Sanam Shetty, Samyuktha Karthik, Velmurugan, Rekha Harris, Shivani Narayanan, Anitha Sampath, Aranthangi Nisha, Suresh Chakravarthy, Gabriella Charlton, and Aajeedh Khalique. Archana Chandhoke and Suchitra Ramadurai were the two wild card contestants this season.
The show was scheduled to begin in July, 2020 but had to be pushed back due to the pandemic, writes The Indian Express.
According to the Times of India, it is for the first time in Bigg Boss Tamil that the winner is the most nominated contestant of the season. Aari was nominated nearly every week but owing to his huge popularity, was saved quickly as well. As is the norm in the house, members create and join groups to play together but Aari projected himself as a one-man army and was not part of any group.
