Presenter Search on 3 reality TV series heads to Bay


The search is on! February 2015 sees the launch of nationwide auditions for the all new Presenter Search on 3 reality TV series. This sizzling new show takes the presenter search concept to a whole new level.

This time there will not just be one winner but three winners! One spot is reserved for the next glamorous Top Billing presenter, another for a candidate that shines on live TV who will join the Expresso Morning Show and the third winner will be the co-host of a brand new SABC3 show, which will be revealed later in the series.

Auditions will take place in Port Elizabeth on the 22nd February, Durban on the 28th February and 1st of March and finally Johannesburg on the 6th, 7th and 8th of March.

If you’ve ever dreamt of being a TV presenter, then this is one audition you can’t afford to miss. Go to for dates and details for your city.

In previous years Top Billing’s Presenter Search enjoyed immense popularity with thousands of hopefuls vying for the coveted role of being a Top Billing presenter. Previous winners Simba Mhere and Jonathan Boynton-Lee were catapulted to fame, and are to date still two of South Africa’s most beloved celebrities.

Throughout the series viewers will see familiar presenter faces from Top Billing, Expresso, as well as surprise guests from other SABC shows. They will host elimination challenges and mentor contestants with top presenter tips.

Over the months of February and March 2015, thousands of hopefuls will be whittled down to a top 10, but only three are destined for greatness as they are put in the spotlight. Under the discerning eyes of Presenter Search on 3 judges Bonang Matheba, Phat Joe and the ever ebullient Jeannie D, contestants will face physical challenges, tests of improvisation and intelligence, all the while maintaining the poise, confidence and charisma befitting a perfect presenter.

Anyone from 18 and above can enter. Viewers and contestants alike will experience enigmatic greatness as well as dismal disappointment. Who will have what it takes to make it into South Africa’s top 3? This new show gives a new meaning to: find it on three.

Presenter Search on 3 broadcasts for the first time on Friday the 6th of March at 19:30 on SABC3. Auditions start in Cape Town mid-February. Find out more on
