Dressed in her spandax catsuit, PC is thrilled to have taken over Akshay Kumar’s daredevil legacy

It’s hard to focus on the going-ons on the sets of Fear Factor Khatron Ke Khiladi Season 3 in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil. The sun shines on the Copacabana beach, right outside the hotel. Dino Morea has gotten up early to do his daily run on the beach, weaving through half-clad sun worshippers.
Priyanka Chopra, this season’s host, is no longer the girlie Bollywood diva in a frock. She’s wearing a black spandax catsuit, with black boots, her hair tied away from the face that means business.
Chopra takes over Akshay Kumar as host of the daredevil show. Ironically, she was linked to the married actor at one time, making it no surprise that she hasn’t called him for tips. Not that he has offered his congratulations.
Put up on the highest floors of the Rio Othon Palace hotel, the crew has a birds-eye view of the Copacabana beach. Shooting for the show in two shifts, Priyanka’s surrounded by 13 hunks – ageing lothario Milind Soman, the poster boy of intellectual cinema Rahul Bose, funny man Cyrus Broach, a newly scrubbed up actor Shabbir Ahluwalia, TV heartthrob Karan Singh Grover, F1 racer Armaan Ebrahim, model Rahul Dev, squash player Ritwik Bhattacharya, Rock On director Abhishek Kapoor, lithe dancer Terence Lewis and yet-to-come-of-age actor Manjot Singh (of Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye!). Lest the contestants More >

After all the initial hype and hoopla (sandwiched with controversies), the final (and the much awaited) list of the contestants of Fear Factor 3 is ready at last! Readers may recall that, the programme has been in the news since a few months now. Firstly, it was because the host of the first two seasons Akshay ‘Khiladi’ Kumar was replaced by Miss Priyanka Chopra, who seems to be all game for any kind of stunts and daredevilry! Secondly, the reason for the delay was the sudden exit by many leading cricketers who were initially supposed to be the contestants on the show.
Well, the present day status is that the required quota of contestants have been filled, whose names read as follows: Rahul Bose, Terrence Lewis (choreographer), Cyrus Broacha, Rahul Dev, Milind Soman, Manjyot Singh (the affable Sardar of Oye Lucky Lucky Oye fame), Abhishek ‘Gattu’ Kapoor, Shabbir Ahluvalia, Karan Singh Grover, Dino Morea, Armaan Ebrahim (car racer), and the squash sensation Ritwik Bhattacharya.
With such a mixed bag of contestants and Priyanka Chopra as the icing, it remains to be seen how Piggy Chops handles the action packed show.
