Auditions: Survivor South Africa 2017

M-Net has renewed Survivor South Africa for the sixth season and entries are open for Survivor lovin' contenders who want an adventure in 2018.

According to M-Net, the series is looking for:

- Players who are fans of the local and international series,

- Players who have what it takes to survive the harsh conditions of a remote island,

- Players who are ready to create fireworks in their tribes and win the game with their unique, strategic gameplay.

The prize


The auditions

The initial round of auditions are happening online so you need to get your video vibez on if you want a spot on the island.

Alternatively, you can write a motivation as an entry but the show would prefer a video so we recommend that you do this instead.

You need to be 18 years old or over as at 30 November 2017.

Here's an overview of the entry process:

How to enter: Option 1

STEP ONE: You need a full-length photo of yourself.

STEP TWO: Make a video or write a motivation of 200 to 300 words. (A video is preferred)

STEP THREE: Fill out the application form on M-Net's website and upload your photo and video here.

STEP FOUR: Entries close on 26 November 2017. The show will be in touch if they want to see you for an audition.

You'll find further details, with tips for your video and pic, on M-Net's Survivor site here: Survivor South Africa entries and guidelines.

How to enter: Option 2

If you struggle to submit your entry online, you can get assistance in the real world at three venues during November.

M-Net will be hosting entry booths at these venues where you can get assistance with your online entry:

Auditions: Our Perfect Wedding

Mzansi Magic's Our Perfect Wedding has always been known for its revolving door presenter policy and now the series has given this new meaning: the next host will be selected via a public vote Presenter Search.

Thembisa Mdoda has headlined the show for the past two seasons, along with guest presenters.

According to Mzansi Magic, Thembisa's contract has come to an end so the search is on for someone to replace her as the new full-time host.

The auditions are happening at the beginning of spring and it's a highly notable gig to land. It's the No.1 show on DStv, which means that whoever hosts it will get noticed - look at what it's done for Thembisa's career.

The downer is that auditions are only happening in three cities when they should be happening in all nine provinces! #Cheap

These are the audition dates and venues:

Venue: Protea Hotel – Marriott Edward
Date: 9 September 2017

Venue: The Pyramid
Date: 16 September 2017
