There's life after Survivor

Cape Town - "Mzi must win. He deserves to win.

"He's the ultimate Survivor. He's never lost his cool, has always been pleasant, he has provided for everybody and fought back.

"And he's my pal," said Survivor contestant Brigitte Willers, who was in Cape Town on Thursday on a whirlwind marketing tour with Lezel Crook and Gareth Tjasink.

Survivor fever is running high as Sunday's finale approaches.

Lezel and Gareth said they're not allowed to divulge anything, because they serve on the jury.

Lezel was very relieved to visit Cape Town, her hometown. "If I had won the million, I may have been able to buy my flat in Mouille Point.

For this free spirit, the adventure did not stop in Panama.

"I resigned from my job as an attorney, and I don't know what I'm going to do next.

"First I'm going to tour Thailand for three weeks, and then look for something more creative. But I probably won't decide until my money runs out," the brunette said.

A community service year awaits the attractive Dr Gareth Tjasink, who interrupted his internship at a hospital to take part in Survivor.

He was kicked off the island on Sunday.

"The moment I was kicked off, I realised it was all over. I let one thing fall, and that was that. If I look back, I would do things differently. I would have played harder," he said.

"I was crazy about winning things. The best thing I won, was the chance to speak to my girlfriend."

It is this young lady who is complicating his community year plans.

"I just want to be near her. I don't know where I'll be going yet, but as long as I can be near her, that's fine."

Brigitte wants to concentrate on her career as a model.

"I moved from Ermelo (where she was raised) to Johannesburg long ago. My parents were against it, but I had bigger dreams for my life, than they wanted."

"At one stage I had to live in a garage in Brixton. Now I just want to do modelling work, she said.
