TLC presenter search on
POPULAR entertainment TV channel, TLC, is searching for an African presenter for its new Most Extreme series.
Liza Dziva, MultiChoice Zimbabwe public relations manager, said: “TLC fans from Zimbabwe are invited to submit a 90-second video audition showcasing their presenting skills and explaining why they should be the next presenter.”
“This year, in association with Colgate Optic White, TLC is looking for that special person who has the winning style and Colgate smile to land the chance to present TLC’s Most Extreme, a brand new, four-part series coming to TLC Entertainment (DStv 135) in 2017, plus an extra one-off special documenting the winner’s story.”
“Featuring some of the most hilarious, gripping and outrageous moments from TLC’s history, TLC’s Most Extreme will be a must see for die-hard fans of the channel and a fantastic platform to launch a new presenting talent to DStv subscribers across Africa.”
Candidates will also be required to read a pre-written script to camera.
“The script details plus full entry criteria can be found on the Next Great Presenter website.”
Each video audition will be reviewed by a team of experts who will select the top 12 to advance to the boot camp stage during which three finalists will be selected by a panel of judges including executives from TLC, DStv and Colgate.
In the end however, it will be up to TLC viewers to vote for their favourite finalist, with the winner set to be revealed at a star-studded event in Johannesburg later this year. Deadline for entries is August 21. Last year, over 1,500 TLC fans from across the continent entered the highly-contended competition, and after 60,000 votes, Namibia’s David Mbeha was crowned the winner. Zimbabwe’s Tendai Karonga made it to the top 12.
“This time around, the competition is set to be even bigger, with more amazing prizes up for grabs for the lucky winner, including a luxury holiday for two, plus of course the opportunity to travel to London to film the four part series in one of TLC’s s tu d i o s ,” said Dziva.
