Mumbai: MTV Splitsvilla winner and VJ Siddharth Bhardwaj has become the third male contestant to enter the house of `Bigg Boss`.
The fifth season of the reality show, hosted by Bollywood stars Sanjay Dutt and Salman Khan, kicked off on October 2 on Colors with actor Shakti Kapoor as the only male contestant among 12 women and one transgender.
Last week saw the entry of TV actor Amar Upadhay, who became famous as Mihir Virani in the popular daily soap `Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi`, and now Siddharth is the third male contestant to become a member of the `Bigg Boss` house.
"I am the third male contestant, but the first hot one. I am just 24, the other two male contestants are older and married. I am like a breath of fresh air and sparks are sure to fly while I stay in the house," an excited Siddharth told reporters.
He shot to fame after winning the second season of `Splitsvilla` with Sakshi Pradhan, who was part of the fourth season of `Bigg Boss`.
He went on to do shows like `MTV Stripped`, `Gone in 60 Seconds` and `Roadies 8.0`. Siddharth said reality shows are his strength and he is aiming to win `Bigg Boss`.
"The ladies had to settle for uncle Shakti Kappor and uncle-in-making Amar Upadhay. As I am young and single, the ladies are totally going to love me," Siddharth quipped.
`Bigg Boss`, the Indian version of UK reality show `Celebrity Big Brother`, has contestants locked inside a secluded house for three months, without any contact with the outside world.
