These celebrities made it big after a reality TV competition show

Even though they lost when they entered reality television shows, celebrities such as Katlego Mohoaduba and Nandi Madida made a name for themselves after they lost.

Sometimes losing may be the start up you need in your career to take you to the next level just like these media personalities:

Nandi Madida may be winning now, but she did not have a smooth ride to the top. In 2010 she entered the SABC 1 Live Presenter Search and made it to the top four but lost to Minnie.

In the same year she came second in the O-Access presenter search competition which was won by Dineo Moeketsi. In 2011 Nandi rose to fame when she released her first single, Tonight.

In 2016 this beauty was crowned Mzanzi's sexiest Woman and in the same year, she was chosen as the face of a beauty line.

She is one of the few female comedians we have in South Africa and she has managed to create a solid career for herself. Celeste Ntuli was one of the top 10 contestants on the second season of the SABC 1 reality competition show series, So You Think You Are Funny in 2009. 

After not winning, Celeste was featured on the Blacks Only comedy showcase in 2010 and made appearances on Ukhozi FM with Linda Sibiya. In 2013 we witnessed Celeste making it in the acting industry as she took on the role of Siphokazi Zungu on Mzansi Magic's telenovela, Isibaya.
