TLC’s next great presenter search is back

TLC’s Next Great Presenter search is on again and after Botswana’s Mpiwa Bagwasi made it to the Top 3, expectations are higher than ever. The hope is for another local to go all the way to clinching the title!

This year the popular entertainment TV channel, in association with Colgate Optic White, 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 Q1 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.    

The competition opened on the 25th July and is due to close on Sunday 21st August. TLC fans from across the continent are invited to submit a 90-second video audition showcasing their presenting skills and explaining why they have what it takes to be the perfect presenter. Candidates will also be required to read a pre-written script to camera, details of which, plus full entry criteria, can be found on the Next Great Presenter website.
 
Last year, over 1500 TLC fans from across the continent entered the highly-contended competition, and after 60,000 votes, Namibia’s David Mbeha was crowned the winner. 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 studios.
 
“The success of TLC’s Next Great Presenter 2015 exceeded our expectations in every way and we are extremely excited to roll the competition out for a second year and amplify it further through our partnership with Colgate Optic White. After receiving more than a thousand entries from across the continent, it only made sense to bring this campaign back and once more showcase the exceptional talent that Africa has to offer,” said Lee Hobbs, VP of Channels, Emerging Business, and Discovery Networks CEEMEA. 

This year, he said, they are looking for contenders who were made to be in front of the camera; with the enthusiasm, charisma, style and smile needed to make TV screens light-up and join the likes of Buddy, Randy and Oprah in the TLC hall of fame. “That is no mean feat, but we know our African viewers will take up the challenge and show us what they’ve got,” he said.  

 “We look forward to many Colgate Smiles lighting up TLC screens as contestants live the Optic White brand,” said Stuart Cryer, Marketing Director, Oral Care. Cryer highlighted that Colgate is excited to be part of this experience. TLC’s Next Great Presenter allows them to really bring Colgate Optic White to life – fashion, style and a perfect smile.
 
Each video audition will be reviewed by a team of experts who will select the top twelve 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. But, in the end it will be up to the TLC viewers to vote for their favorite finalist, with the winner set to be revealed live at a star-studded event in Johannesburg later this year.
