Indo-British Model and Winner of Miss India UK 2012, Deana Uppal, has had a short, yet quite an eventful journey in Khatron Ke Khiladi 5 so far. The gorgeous 26-year old entered the show through the wild card round in Week 5 along with Ajaz Khan.
Ever since her entry on the show, Deana Uppal has been a subject of interest for the KKK 5 fans and the media alike. Whether it was the reports of her apparently brewing relationship with rapper Yo Yo Honey Singh, her tiff with ex-participant of Khatron Ke Khiladi 5, Ajaz Khan; her unique habit of singing even during the most horrifying acts on the show, or her hindi accent, Deana has always remained in the news. However, the question on everyone's minds is, whether will she make it through this week's elimination round or not.
A couple of weeks ago on the show, when the other contestants were asked to nominate the one who they thought, was likely to get eliminated the next week, most of the votes were against Deana. She has also been a consistent poor performer through her brief stint on the show, often getting close to, or into eliminations. It is also widely rumoured that Ajaz Khan went into eliminations because of Deana's failure in a stunt.
Deana, however, feels otherwise. She takes immense pride in having proved others wrong and conquered her phobia of insects. Deana Uppal won a creepy stunt by staying in an insect-filled bag for the longest time amongst the other contestants- 11 minutes! In her opinion, Gauhar Khan is the weakest contestant, as she had once refused to perform a stunt due to her fear of heights. This is ironic, considering Gauhar is one of the most sought after celebs in the telly world when it comes to reality shows, be it dance, drama, or daredevil action. Gauhar Khan, who was eliminated on 27 April, will be seen back on Khatron Ke Khiladi 5 this weekend on popular demand and it will be interesting to see who has the last laugh among the two beauties.
Deana admits she wanted to contest on the show to conquer her fears. She was afraid of heights and insects.
Deana on Khatron Ke Khiladi 5
Deana's performance on the stunt-based reality show has been mixed, with highs and lows.
It is believed that Deana's failure in one of the stunts pushed Ajaz Khan into elimination and that Ajaz is mad at her for the same. Deana has rubbished all such rumours, saying both of them were at fault.
Deana and Ajaz's Friendship
Deana's maintains a good friendship with co-contestant Ajaz Khan and the duo got along well on the show.
Beauty with Brains
Deana is the winner of Miss India UK 2012 and is a model-cum-actress. Let's hope she proves that she's got what it takes to last on KKK 5.
