Name: Palesa Tau
Previous season: Survivor South Africa: Philippines S6
Age: 32
Hometown: Johannesburg
Palesa Tau works as a radio presenter and producer, hosting her own health talk show and is also a voice-over artist. She comes from a close-knit family and spends a lot of time with her sister and mother.

Her appearance on Survivor SA: Philippines boosted her confidence personally and professionally, seeing her being nominated for a number of radio industry awards over the last few years. 

Palesa came into her season of Survivor SA without much knowledge of the game – with no pre-determined strategy, preferring to play instinctively. This time around, she’s aiming to be more social and try to be more intentional and proactive.
