  • Bigg Boss Tamil 5 Grand Finale Highlights: With his mimicry s****s, stand-up comedy, and funny one-liners, Raju was the most entertaining Bigg Boss Tamil contestant of the season. Despite the fact that he had been nominated for eviction more than five times, he managed to survive eviction every time. While he was inside the BB house, his fans compiled his comedy juncks and made them go viral on social media. Though he faced little criticism for not playing the tasks hard enough or never getting to be a captain at least once, Raju has won everybody's support both inside and outside the BB house. In the last task given to all the contestants to choose their favourite housemate, Raju has won the task with a clear mandate. Apart from Pavani accusing Raju of poking his nose into the Pavani-Abhinay relationship, he never got involved in any ugly spat. Raju-Priyanka is the audience’s most loved duo of the season. Though they entered the house without a strong bond, eventually their comical rapport turned out to be the most entertaining one.

Priyanka Deshpande read out the rules of the task ‘Ushar Aiya Usharu’, to select the captain. The contenders for the task were selected based on the 'Name game' task. Mathumitha and Priyanka won the task and hence they were selected as the contenders. In part 2 of the task for captaincy, the housemates had to throw the smiley balls in the net held by Priyanka and Mathumitha. Later, they had to collect those balls in their respective baskets. Mathumitha collected the maximum number of smiley balls and she became the captain of the house for the week. Mathumitha divided the teams for the household chores.

Contestants Abishek Raaja, Iykki Berry, Chinna Ponnu remained in the danger zone. Contestants like Pavani Reddy and others, who possess special coins, volunteered to share their coins and save him. But Abishek decided to accept the verdict given by the public in terms of votes. All the housemates kept requesting him to accept the coins and stay back. But Abhishek shared, he won't be able to play the game after knowing the public opinion. Later, Bigg Boss clarified that the coin can be used only when the housemates are given the opportunity to use it. On receiving better clarity from Bigg Boss, Abishek left the house. His co-participants had an emotional moment. Kamal Haasan welcomed Abishek on the stage. He asked Abishek whether he expected his exit so soon. Abishek replied that he thought he would be among the top 5 contestants. Kamal opined that Abishek has a good analytical sense and his judgment about others is good. He should use his analytical skills to judge him. Later, Kamal showed Abishek’s journey video to him. Kamal advised that Abishek seems to be an angry young man. He suggested him to be 'afraid' of his own anger and control it rather. 


Bigg Boss said Raju Jeyamohan, Pavani Reddy, Ciby and Isaivani were present in the activity area on time during the Oru Kadhai Sollattuma task and since Imman Annachi was selected as the most entertaining contestant, they can participate in the captaincy contender task. According to the task, the housemates either as individuals or groups, were asked to disturb five contenders and make them smile or angry. Later, Bigg Boss announced that the housemates can garland their favorite contender who will be the captain. Finally, on the basis of the maximum garlands received, Ciby was selected as the captain. Later, the new captain divided the teams for the household chores.  Bigg Boss announced the nomination task. As Ciby is the captain, he cannot be nominated for this week. Finally, Bigg Boss announced that 9 contestants - Abhishek Raaja, Pavani Reddy, Akshara Reddy, Chinna Ponnu, Priyanka Deshpande, Thamarai Selvi, Iykki Berry, Isaivani, and Abhinay Vaddi - were nominated for eviction. Meanwhile, housemates like Imman Annachi, Raju and others complained about the confusion in the kitchen area. Raju tried to sort out the differences with Pavani adding that language barrier could be a reason for the misunderstanding. 

On the occasion of Vijayadashami, special arrangements were made. Flowers, costumes, and all the other necessary items were sent to the housemates to decorate the house colorfully.
