He said, "For me this is what I do for a living. This time I'll be chilling and enjoying myself in my corner,"

 

"Watching my colleagues, these are very interesting people, seeing celebrities do what they have never done. It's all about the hosts, contestants, audience and viewers at home. In this current economy we need that kind of fun, to put a smile on your face."

I really think I'm fun, smart, sassy and spicy. And the show needs all those stuff."
