Readers' Choice: Who should be in Bigg Boss 5?
Yet another season of the alarmingly popular reality show Bigg Boss is upon us, and we asked you who you would like to see living in that constantly-monitored house.
Clearly you had a blast throwing in the different kinds of names to make up a spectacularly twisted list. Here it is:
Riding the popularity wave, Anna's inclusion in this list is a no-brainer.
And hey, he's likely to win the bigg prize as well, considering a) how unfashionable it is to say an unkind word about him, so the housemates will all play nice and b) going without fancy foods really won't matter to the fasting icon. Jai Anna.

Also, considering the number of personality types he manages in a dressing room, clearly he can handle divas and duds in enclosed spaces.

Interesting choice, this.
Clearly, dear readers, you miss watching this soap icon weep melodramatically on the idiot box, and want to see more of the Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi lady show the others just how professional crocodile tears can be.

His bizarre signature style would help in describing the inevitably loony antics around him, but god save the rest of the contestants if the man with the braying laugh finds something amusing while they're asleep.

By encouraging them to heal themselves through breathing, he'd also be helping us by shutting them up for a while.
