Eight hopefuls, three days on a billboard and one spot reserved on the island as a castaway!
KFM and 94.7 listeners could enter a wild card competition to win a guaranteed spot on the island as a castaway. From the radio search eight contestants were selected and will compete from 22 to 24 November on a billboard on the corner of William Nicol and Sandton Drive in Johannesburg to see who can outwit, outplay and outlast their competition!
We caught Mellisa, Theresa, Janice, Jody, Peter, Nkele, Adrian and Josh before they went up on the billboard. Watch the video here:
