Jonty, Tyson in reality house

Cape Town - If former South African cricketer Jonty Rhodes is looking forward to one thing during his stint in the fifth season of the reality TV show, Bigg Boss, it is, believe it or not, model Poonam Pandey.

“Let’s hope I get to see Poonam Pandey, but by all accounts she is still in hiding from the Indian cricket team,” says the 42-year-old.

Twenty-year-old Pandey shot to fame when she said she’d strip if the Indian cricket team won the Cricket World Cup earlier this year, but did not keep her promise.

According to the Hindustantimes website, about being in the same house as former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson and singer Shakira, Rhodes says, “If Mr Tyson (I think that’s what I will call him if I have to share space with him - much safer) and Shakira are in the house, it will be interesting to get their impressions of India, as I don’t think either of them has spent nearly as much time as me in this amazing country.”

Rhodes says he will also enjoy former cricketer Navjot Singh Siddhu's company on the show.

“I am sure that we two reasonable fielders will gel just fine on the show. He is one of the few characters left in the game of cricket, either on or off the field, so it should be an entertaining time,” says Rhodes, who is still in discussions about how long he’ll be on the show that starts on TV channel Colors from October 2.

Rhodes added, “I have been coming to India regularly since 1993, and have not been able to learn much Hindi, so hope the show will help me do that stuff.”
