Japanese sumo wrestler `Yama` leaves Bigg Boss house

Zeenews Sports Bureau

Mumbai: Former Japanese sumo wrestler Yamamotoyama has left the Bigg Boss house after spending a day there as a guest. The heaviest ever Japanese sumo wrestler learned dancing and singing during his stay at the house.

He entered the house on 31st December and scared the hell out of the male contestant as his entry was kept as a surprise to them. They were asked to wear Sumo wrestling attire and immediately were pit in a fight against the former wrestler and surprisingly, they managed to defeat Yama.

He received some dancing lessons from Juhi Parmar and Mehak Chahal during his stay and the song ‘Sayonara' was played as his wake up alarm.

His diet was a source of great amusement for the contestants as Sid said, “The amount of rice he ate is enough for my family for two days.”

The Japanese main hindrance was the language barrier since he didn’t understand Hindi or English but placards were handed over to him to communicate with the housemates.

The wrestler made his debut in 2007 but his career was brought to a halt unceremoniously as he and several other wrestlers were asked to retire by the Japan Sumo Association after they were found involved in match-fixing. However Yama describes the allegations of fixing against him as false.
