This is the first time that an international cricketer is entering Bigg Boss; he will enter the house on Wednesday
December 6, 2011:
Australian all-rounder Andrew Symonds is all set to enter the Bigg Boss 5 House on Wednesday. This is the first time that an international cricketer is entering Bigg Boss. Knowing that a language barrier stands between him and his ability to win the hearts of the viewers, Andrew is certain that it will not prove to be a problem given that he is already a household name.
Speaking about his decision to enter the Bigg Boss house, Andrew Symonds said, “I decided to take up Bigg Boss as a challenge. India has been good to me and I have been traveling to India for over 20 years. I have not seen any of the previous episodes because I don’t want to enter with a biased opinion of the other contestants. I am hoping to have a lot of fun inside the house and learn more about the Indian culture that I find very fascinating. I am also looking at this as an opportunity to showcase the Australian culture which involves fun-filled activities like barbecues, throwing people into the pool and being completely at peace.”
Clearing the air about his much-talked about controversy with fellow cricketer Harbhajan Singh, Andrew said, “Bhajji and I have spoken about all that happened between us and we have worked out our differences. We are now in regular touch with each other and catch up as often as possible. Being a part of the same team definitely helped us to sort our differences and today, we are great friends.”
Andrew is clear that he is not planning on causing more upheavals inside the house, but instead will teach his fellow contestants all about having fun and enjoying life. As a sportsperson, Andrew is used to dealing with extreme behavior and flaring tempers. So will Andrew teach his fellow contestants how to play cricket and hold themselves together?
