Australian cricketer Andrew Symonds is the latest celebrity to enter the 'Bigg Boss' house and says he is looking forward to his stint on Indian television and is hoping to get an opportunity to understand Indian culture.

'I don't know much about Indian culture. I know about it in bits and pieces. Hope to learn about it more,' Symonds told IANS over phone from Mumbai.

The sportsman, who will enter the house Wednesday, is well-versed with the challenges on the field, but he is now looking forward to the challenges inside the house.

'There are different challenges on the field, but challenges would be different inside the house. Right now I am quite relaxed. I am going inside the house with an open mind and take on challenges as they come. I haven't planned anything,' he said.

'I have no expectations, I have come to make friends. It will be challenging but at the same time it will be a lot of fun also. I just want to enjoy the entire experience,' he added.

Symonds will be the second international celebrity to enter the Colors' show after Indo-Canadian porn star Sunny Leone. The 36-year-old cricketer will enter the show as a participant. Symonds was in the news when in 2008 he accused Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh of making racial comments against him.

In the show, the contestants have to stay inside the 'Bigg Boss' house without any connection with the outside world with 24X7 camera surveillance.

The fifth season started Oct 2 with 14 contestants. Right now seven are left - Sunny, Mahek Chahal, Juhi Parmar, Akashdeep Saigal, Siddharth Bharadwaj, Shonali Nagrani and Amar Upadhyay.

All the contestants inside the 'Bigg Boss' house have to do day-to-day chores on their own, whether it's cleaning or cooking. Symonds admits he doesn't cook much, but is ready to help his inmates.

'I would be more than happy to help the people inside the house in everyday work and cleaning, though I don't cook much. I know a little bit of barbeque,' he said.

The episode showing his entry in the house will be telecast Thursday.
