    So a "legendary" cricketer is going to lower himself and participate in this trash television reality show.

    If we can go by what other celebrities who were offered and knocked back the invitstion, it is around 60k a week pay packet

    So far, this cricketer we know he has played over 20 tests and hit a six in test cricket

    Many seem to think it might be Andrew Symonds or Merv Hughes

    My smokie is Simon Katich. He retired last year and was on celebrity masterchef.

    I doubt very much he will be a legend, they build these stupid reality shows up for ages before they release them and end up being duds.

    Have they said anywhere that he has actually played for Australia, or if he is a he, maybe a female cricketer.

    Andrew Symonds was on India Big Brother so wouldn't put it past him to be on this nonsense.

    Probably that Victorian Fleming, scored a test 50, hit a six and played in a winning ashes series.

    MCG boxing day test 1998 - 43 off 65 balls in the first dig (shared 9th wicket stand with tugger of 88)
    Poms attack of Gough, Headley, Mullally, and Fraser

    We lost that test by 12 runs after being bundled out in the 2nd innings for 162 (MacGill got 0). The wicket was a minefield, Headley got a 6 for.

    Was also the test Mathew Nicholson played his only test for Australia, probably a good thing too

    Damien Fleming has been my guess from the start.
    Fits all the clues and a cross promotion for 10.

    well, you'd be wrong from the very start as well

    I reckon its Andrew Symonds or Simon Katich

    I caught about 10 minutes of the show mid way, tried to get into it but couldn't, was cringeworthy at best

    from memory the cast is..

    Barry hall - afl dude

    a supposedly funny gay comedian, - don't know his name seems to come from nowhere to be everywhere on tv last few months

    Chrissy swann, doesn't surprise me she was on big brother

    Andrew daddo - he is there cause he cant get anything else, 60k a week is better than centrelink, just don't tell centrelink where you are champ

    Laura Dundovic Ms universe australia 2008, the token model, and a Jennifer wannabe.

    Marcia brady from the brady bunch, well she is almost 60yrs old now. must be desperate for cash or like what happens in the NRL at times, was paid overs which she couldn't resist. Im banking the former

    Liesal Jones 4 time Olympian. This one surprised me a lot. Maybe has stardom withdrawel symptoms?

    There was a couple of others walking around, didn't know who they were


    All of them id classify as c-grade washed up celebrities. The show and its cast is headed for a massive ratings fail
