In the past, some of the show's contestants have called Salman biased for allegedly having favoured certain participants. Asked if that was true, Priya told IANS: "No, I wouldn't say so... I would not call him biased at all. In fact, he is one of the most unbiased reality TV show host that you can find on the planet. He says it like it is, and some people can't digest it."
Priya, popularly known as Posh Spice of Australian TV, added that the whole "Bigg Boss Nau" house looks forward to the "Dabangg" star's weekend episodes "because we know he would bring fairness and justice to the house. He brings up things from his perspective and also the audience's perspective".
How does it feel to get evicted just a week before the finale?
"I was definitely disappointed... I guess being declared as the first finalist... that kind of back-fired. I think the audience must have thought that I am already a finalist," said the Adelaide high school teacher who has roots in Dehradun.
She also added that her aim was to get into showbiz through her stint in the show, which airs on Colors channel.
"I would be lying if I say that it was not my aim. I knew that it would be a great launch in the Indian TV industry and I am hoping that proves to be right," said the former "Big Brother Australia" contestant.
Which contestant does she want to see as the winner?
"Rishabh (Sinha). He deserves to win. He has been entertaining, likeable and has proved himself. He's a genuine guy. At the end of the day, a 'Bigg Boss' winner should be all of this and more... So, definitely Rishabh," she said.
Rishabh still has to battle it out with his co-contestants Mandana Karimi, Rochelle Rao, Keith Sequeira and Prince Narula to win the title.
The show features celebrity contestants in a game of survival wherein they are locked up under 24X7 camera surveillance in an isolated house for around three months without the luxuries they are used to.
