Full name: Gershwin Mthombeni
Occupation: Fashion designer, entrepreneur
Gershwin describes himself as a “typical guy”, with varied interests and talents. “I’m very artistic,” he says. “I’m creative – I have the ability to think outside the box.” Deeply spiritual, he enjoys giving people advice and motivation. “I’m going to be myself, and I’m going to try and win the audience over by motivating them to follow their dreams.”
His motivation for entering Big Brother Mzansi is the money, pure and simple, with plans to use the money to fund a few entrepreneurial projects. “It’s a platform for growing myself.” He says that his fellow Housemates should expect “a lot of noise. I’m a talkative person. I’m going to be flirting with the ladies”.
Outside of the House, Gershwin is a fashion designer and entrepreneur, and he says that he has never been to a club or consumed alcohol, and that he doesn’t have the discipline to exercise as much as he would like.
