BootCamp, celebrity style

Posted by radio On November - 8 - 2014 ADD COMMENTS

Mzansi Magic’s BootCamp is getting a transformation of its own when it returns for a new season in January 2015.

 

In Season 3, the popular weight-loss show will be known as BootCamp Mzansi – Celebrity Edition, with the 12 contestants now facing the challenges and workouts set by a cast of handpicked celebrity trainers.

With their names still under-wraps, the new BootCamp trainers are being drawn primarily from the world of entertainment and sport – with a few surprise trainers also set to make their presence felt on the popular show!

 

As with the previous Season 1 and 2 headed by Kabelo Mabalane, BootCamp Mzansi will see a dozen South Africans learn to take charge of their bodies, minds and ultimately their lives, boot camp style. This time around, the emphasis will be on the individual journey of the contestants as they attempt a transformation in their lives, with all the blood, sweat, tears and joy that accompanies it.

 

“We are shaking things up a little on BootCamp with the next season,” explains Nkateko Mabaso, M-Net’s Director for Local Interest Channels.

 

“There are many homegrown celebrities who are also role models for healthy and active living – and we will be drawing on their insights, experience and unique stories for our bootcampers. We know from our first two seasons that our viewers also get inspired to get fit and healthy when they watch BootCamp and we are sure that Season 3 will once again positively impact the lives of ordinary South Africans.”

 

The contestants will live in the BootCamp Mzansi house for 11 weeks. During each week, a celebrity trainer will enter the house to take the bootcampers through a morning workout, an afternoon workout, a challenge and, then, an elimination. The contestant who loses the least amount of weight and displays the least amount of determination after every week of challenges is eliminated.

 

The emphasis is on empowering contestants to face their personal life challenges with conviction, knowledge and courage, especially when they leave the BootCamp house for good.

 

The celebrity trainer’s role would be to ensure that the contestants walk away with the tools to effect a holistic transformation on themselves, even if they leave the BootCamp house during the early elimination rounds

 

The winner of Season 3 will join previous season winners Thabo Mboya (Season 1) and Thapelo Mabusweni (Season 2).

 

BootCamp Mzansi – Celebrity Edition, debuts in January 2015 on Mzansi Magic Channel DStv, Channel 161.

Skeem Saam is holding auditions

Posted by radio On October - 31 - 2014 ADD COMMENTS

Skeem Saam is proudly one of the few television shows in South Africa who regularly hold open auditions. This is how we discovered most of the young talent that are currently gracing our screens.  High school is over for some of our beloved characters; in 2015 they progress from high school to university and leave Turfloop for new adventures in Johannesburg.

Skeem Saam are looking for talented performers who are driven, passionate, dedicated, disciplined and have a fervent desire to be on our show.

Skeem Saam is primarily a Sepedi show, based in Turfloop, Limpopo but our Jo’burg world will be as true a reflection of the diversity of Jo’burg as we can create. It will be populated by people from all over the country and even from different parts of our continent and abroad.  We will audition in Hammanskraal and Johannesburg and are looking for males and females from all the language groups of South Africa.
