New Delhi:

Australia all-rounder Andrew Symonds will be the latest contestant to enter the Bigg Boss house.

Symonds will be only the fifth male contestant to feature in Bigg Boss this season.

Never away from controversies during his stint with the Australian national team, the cricketer seems like a perfect choice for the reality show that is known to feature controversial contestants.

Bigg Boss, however, was reportedly first offered to Symonds' former Australia teammate Brett Lee but the pacer declined due to prior commitments, instead giving his nod for the show's next season.

Symonds gained notoriety in India for his part in the monkeygate scandal that involved him accusing India spinner Harbhajan Singh of racially abusing him during the Sydney Test in 2008.
