Mumbai: Renee Dhyani, the latest contestant to get evicted from 'Bigg Boss 8', says her three-week-long stay in the show left her depressed and drained.
Renee, who rose to fame after participating in stunt-based reality show 'Roadies', entered as a wild-card contestant, said she found being confined in the house very difficult.
"I entered the house at the time when almost half of the show was over. Everyone had found friends and they did not make any effort to connect with me. There was no phone, no TV and no friends. It was very depressing. With each passing day, I was feeling more and more lonely," Renee told PTI post her eviction.
Renee, known for her brash and aggressive image on 'Roadies', did not show that side of her personality on 'Bigg Boss 8' and feels her calm demeanour may have led to her eviction from the Salman Khan-hosted show.
"When I entered, the audience expected that I would be loud and aggressive like I was in my previous reality show. But nothing like that happened. I think I was voted out for that," she said.
Despite not making any friends inside the 'Bigg Boss' house, Renee connected with fellow contestant Upen Patel.
"I used to have a crush on him. But I think besides that Upen is a gentleman... He is very calm and quiet. He prefers to stay away from all the chaos in the house. I really connected well with him," she said.
When asked who she thinks will win the show, Renee said, "Pritam is very grounded. I think the audience would want someone like him to be crowned as the winner."
