While there were reports that all contestants of Bigg Boss 11 will be commoners, it seems like the makers have apparently decided to follow the previous season's format – which comprised of both commoners and celebrities – in 11th season as well.

To be hosted by Salman Khan, it is for the first time in the history of the popular show that the makers have included a special clause, which will refrain contestants from maligning the image of the channel and the makers following their eviction. If broken, evicted contestant will have to return Rs 10 lakh from their total earnings from the show or the winning amount.
