Full name: Thando Mati
Thando (30) is a family orientated model. She describes herself as fun, loving, a free spirit and a risk taker. She’s a foodie who would love to open a restaurant that only serves everything that she likes. That’s because food embodies what she loves most, which is community and togetherness.
She enjoys gallery hopping, going to festivals, but also being a homebody. “I love TV, and I’m sad I’ll miss The Wife while I’m in the House.” She believes she is a good listener, that’s why a lot of people confide in her. “I can be cheeky.”
She hopes that her presence in the House will make her relatable “at the end of the day, we are an incorporation of different environments.” Her go-to strategy in Biggie’s House is to be relatable. “I don’t want to be seen as a slay queen – I have my days where I look bougie and I’ve got my days where I look like I’m going to the corner shop. I want the girl from eZola to relate to me, and I want the girl in Sandton to relate to me.”
