Actor, presenter, reality star and one of GQ's Best Dressed Men for 2013, Lungile Radu, will be the host of the rebooted Big Brother South Africa.
In a statement released this morning by M-Net channels, Lungile will host the third season of the show, which is making a return after an 11 year hiatus.
While we don't really get the popularity about the show, it's not surprising that M-Net decided to bring it back. It was pretty controversial in its hey days and we understand that viewers miss the drama that the local contestants brought to the show.
Lungile said that he is looking forward to his time hosting the show. "It’s an opportunity for me to learn what goes into making this massive production. It appeals to the presenter but also to the producer in me. It will also give me the chance to hone my live presenting skills. Being on-air in real time is one of the most challenging aspects of TV presenting and there’s no better place to master that skill than on a program where unpredictable characters, shocking twists and unexpected turns are in fact, normal.”
The show will start with on 2 February 2014 at 7pm, with a two hour premiere on Mzansi Magic.
