The tale of Simba Mhere's win is a favourite for the SABC 3 family because he went the extra mile to chase his dream...
Those who have been to auditions know just how long it can take and those who have missed their chance, know just how much the missed opportunity hurts. This is exactly what Mhere had in mind when he drove to the audition venue the night before his audition and slept in his car the night before just to make sure he was the first person in the queue at 4am.
The rest, as they say, is history...
The headline sponsor for the new season of Presenter Search on 3, McCafé, has just announced an exciting new way to help hopefuls make an impact at the upcoming Johannesburg auditions as they introduce #McFastTrack.
What is it?
Well, if you head over to your favourite McCafé in selected McDonald’s restaurants anywhere in the country and record a short, 30 second video where you show off your presenting skills and upload the video onto Instagram using the #McFastTrack hashtag, you could win one of six VIP experiences.
In the video, be sure to introduce yourself and tell the judges why you’re going to be the next big thing on TV.
Winners will jet off to the Johannesburg auditions in style if one of two things happen.
1. Presenter Search on 3 judge DJ Fresh will pick three of his favourite entries to win this once-in-a-lifetime experience, or
2. The three entries with the most likes will also score themselves this exclusive pass.
Not only will the winners skip the queue at the auditions and fast-track their way into the audition room, but they will be treated like royalty and live the luxurious life of a presenter for the day.
The competition closes next Monday, 16th of April, so head down to your nearest McCafé in selected McDonald’s restaurants anywhere in the country, take out your cell phone, and show off whether or not you've got what it takes to be in the spotlight!
The PE and Cape Town audition dates are up but the following dates are coming up:
Durban on Saturday the 14th and Sunday the 15th of April at the Durban Exhibition Centre.
Johannesburg on Friday the 20th, Saturday the 21st and Sunday the 22nd of April at Wanderers Cricket Stadium.
