TLC pre­sen­ter search on

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Entertainment - Show­biz Re­porter

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.
