Michelle “Mphowabadimo” Mvundla of Daveyton was crowned Big Brother Mzansi champion on Sunday night, after 13 weeks of being under 24/7 live television surveillance.
Mvundla, the only woman in the top five, defeated Gash1 to win the R2m grand prize and season title.
The majority of fans identified with Mvundla because she represented a community of spiritual healers, which she decided to promote in her Big Brother journey.
In January, the show made its long-awaited return, introducing SA to candidates such as Terry Treasure, Vyno, Dinky Bliss, B.U, and Venus.
After 20 participants entered the house, only five made it to the finale: Themba, Tulz, Libo, Mphowabadimo, and Gash1.
The season began with controversy when Keamogetswe “QV” Motlhale of Mahikeng abruptly left the competition less than 72 hours after entering “to safeguard her mental health.”
Terry astounded Mzansi when she admitted to being an adult content provider with an OnlyFans account. She elected to use the platform to educate the roommates on the benefits and drawbacks of having an OnlyFans account.
Sis Tamara was another roommate who utilized her platform to advocate for the LGBTIQ community, and many fans admired her free-spirited demeanor and vulnerability.
While many alliances and friendships were developed, a number of love connections were formed in the home, such as Terry hooking up with Vyno, Gash1 hooking up with Thato, and Venus hooking up with B.U and Themba.
Venus, on the other hand, decided not to pursue any of the males after she left.
