Ex-St Anne’s student DJ drops it all for a dare

2009-02-20 00:00

Men “had a bit of a loer” as a former St Anne’s pupil went grocery shopping half-naked yesterday morning.

University radio presenter Lize Kay — real name, Lize Kok — rose to the challenge when her co-host dared her live on air to buy a litre of milk at the local BP convenience store in nothing but her underwear.

“Just before I actually did it, I was very nervous. I was like: ‘Oh no, I can’t do this!’, but 10 steps later and it was like nothing. People weren’t even shocked,” said the 20-year-old.

Lize, who is reading for a degree in language studies and political science at the University of Stellenbosch, hosts the daily breakfast show on the campus radio station.

She explained that the bet came about when she and co-host SeanO (Sean Loots), were talking about a popular sitcom.

“We were talking about the TV show How I Met Your Mother, and they had mentioned something called the underwear radius, which is basically how far you’d walk around in your underwear,” she said. “So, one thing led to another and SeanO dared me to do go buy milk in my skimpies.”

They agreed that if 100 people SMSed the show before last Friday she would take up the challenge. “105 people smsed, so there was no turning back,” she said.

Lize, who matriculated from the Hilton school in 2006, spent the next week getting local business to sponsor her outfit — “a pair of shades, heels and undies”.

Her co-host, who walked alongside her during the stint, had no doubt that she would go through with it. “She’s the kind of person who loves a challenge. Besides, we had already gotten all the sponsorship so she had to do it,” he said.

“It was weird. Nobody thought anything of it. A woman at the BP skeefed her, that was about it. Oh! And some men sitting at the coffee shop had a nice loer,” he laughed.
