After 27 days of hell on a desolate island in the Maldives, the title of Ultimate Survivor and R1-million in cash will go to either Letshego Moshoeu or Hykie Berg.
The biokineticist, who started her journey in M-Net's Survivor South Africa as one of ten "plebs" who were taking on nine "celebs", triumphed at the game's very last immunity challenge. With the coveted immunity necklace around her now super-bony collar, the minute Letshego had the opportunity to decide which of the two remaining players she wanted to go up against for the jury's vote. Letshego had to choose between actor Hykie and his friend, actress Bonnie Henna, as madcap musician MXO had already bitten the dust at the previous tribal council when Bonnie wore the immunity necklace. Letshego opted for a very surprised Hykie.
While casting her vote, she explained to viewers that she picked Binneland actor Hykie, as it would have been more difficult to win the game if the jury had to choose between herself and actress Bonnie Henna, who definitely curried more favour with the 10 jury members. It's been no secret that Hykie has upset quite a number of the 10 voted-off Survivors who were watching their every move from the jury bench.
The dramatic episode, which contained two immunity challenges and tribal councils, ended just before the jury got the opportunity to grill the Final Two and make their way to the ballot box to cast their very important vote.
At the reunion show, which will be broadcast live from Rand Airport on Thursday 26 May at 7.30pm to 9pm, viewers will see how the bitter and twisted jury members take their revenge. But there is an eleventh jury member who could change the course of events. As was the case last season, the public also has a vote. The 11th vote in the box will be the name of the person who has received the most votes from the public.
How does the public voting work this season? You can cast your vote via SMS or MXit. Send the name of your favourite contestant to 37177. You can vote up to 100 times at the cost of R1.50 per SMS. VAS rates apply and you can't use free minutes.
