The newest season of South Africa’s version of the popular reality TV show kicks off on 24 February (M-Net at 7.30 pm) with two mischievously crafted teams pitted against each other: plebs vs celebs.
In the ranks are a maths boffin, a former model and a professional sportsman – and they’re among the plebs! The celebs side includes actors Bonnie Henna, Hykie Berg and Carmel Fisher and Idols finalist Jacques Terre’Blanche.
So sparks are predicted to fly when the teams get to grips with the hardships, challenges and watch-your-back scheming as alliances are formed and promises are broken.
They’ll be at it for 27 days – and with R1 million up for grabs Survivor South Africa: Maldives is bound to be compelling viewing.
