Win a Home hits the home stretch

The fourth sea­son of Win a Home, South Africa’s pre­mier inte­ri­or design real­i­ty TV com­pe­ti­tion host­ed on SABC 3’s After­noon Express, has been a huge suc­cess, cap­tur­ing the atten­tion and ado­ra­tion of fans across the coun­try.

With a lux­u­ry home at the Eye of Africa Golf and Res­i­den­tial Estate in the south of Johan­nes­burg up for grabs, the com­pe­ti­tion is sure to prove a life-chang­ing expe­ri­ence for one lucky SABC 3 view­er when the win­ner is announced live on tele­vi­sion today, Fri­day Novem­ber 10, 2017.

The home is a wel­comed addi­tion com­plet­ing an offer­ing that allows Eye of Africa to pro­vide for pur­chasers across the spec­trum, from young pro­fes­sion­als to cou­ples and young fam­i­lies, as well as emp­ty nesters.

Engage­ment with the Win a Home series on Social Media has been immense and the series has suc­cess­ful­ly been trend­ing in the top five posi­tions on Twit­ter dur­ing every episode’s broad­casts.

This is thanks to a fun mix of dra­ma and the big per­son­al­i­ties of the intrigu­ing and tal­ent­ed Design Duos.

Part­ners Abi­ah ‘Super­star’ Mahlase and Brad Mut­titt cer­tain­ly deliv­ered on their promise of bring­ing raz­zle-daz­zle to the com­pe­ti­tion, with their some­what out­landish ideas and big con­cepts.

The fash­ion-design­er cou­ple may have brought their men­tor, Aman­da Gra­ham of Habi­tat mag­a­zine, close to tears with the amount of trade­mark chan­de­liers and arti­fi­cial grass used in their home, but they have stayed true to their vision and cre­at­ed a home that defies con­ven­tion.

Best friends Banele Khoza and Tshe­po Sealet­sa caught the atten­tion of House and Leisure mag­a­zine edi­tor Tiaan Nagel from the start.

The men­tor appre­ci­at­ed Banele’s artis­tic vision paired with Tshepo’s atten­tion to detail.

They have impressed the judges with their care­ful­ly curat­ed inte­ri­ors. Banele was also award­ed the Ger­ard Seko­to Award at this year’s pres­ti­gious ABSA L’Atelier art awards, win­ning a three-month art res­i­den­cy at the Cité Inter­na­tionale des Arts in Paris.

Before enter­ing this year’s Win a Home con­test, Mpho ‘Design­er’ Mpha­ga and Lesego Masekela were ‘strangers unit­ed by design’. Lesego and Mpho both stud­ied inte­ri­or design and, under guid­ance of their men­tor Annemarie Mein­t­jes, deputy edi­tor of VISI mag­a­zine, have stayed the course by design­ing their colour­ful home with a fic­tion­al client in mind.

After an excit­ing jour­ney, the com­pe­ti­tion reach­es its peak in a live finale at 4pm on SABC 3.

The win­ners of the inte­ri­or design com­pe­ti­tion will be announced, with the win­ning Design Duo walk­ing away with a R100, 000 cash prize as the Judges Choice, cour­tesy of main spon­sor Pri­vate Prop­er­ty.

Addi­tion­al­ly, the Duo who is vot­ed the View­ers’ Favourite will win R20, 000 in cash.

If the same Duo gets the nod from both the judges and the view­ers, they will bag both prizes and walk away with R120, 000.

But the real big win­ner will be the lucky view­er who will get the keys to a brand-new home.

Through­out the com­pe­ti­tion, view­ers have been invit­ed to vote for their favourite Design Duo and this has been their entry into the Grand Prize com­pe­ti­tion.

Six final­ists have been drawn ran­dom­ly from all the valid entries received and will be revealed live on After­noon Express on Fri­day 10th Novem­ber for the final thrilling draw.

The prize is the largest of its kind on local tele­vi­sion: a home in the Stone Quar­ter devel­op­ment at the mag­nif­i­cent Eye of Africa Golf and Res­i­den­tial Estate in the south of Johan­nes­burg, val­ued at over R3 mil­lion.

The Grand Prize win­ner will have the hap­py task of choos­ing one of the three homes dec­o­rat­ed by the Design Duos, which are com­plete with lux­u­ri­ous fin­ish­es by Plas­con and Cae­sar­stone, out­stand­ing bath­room fit­tings by Geber­it and Gro­he and pre­mier appli­ances by Grundig.

Sea­son 4 of Win a Home has also been a full cir­cle moment for Judge Don­ald Nxu­ma­lo of DNX Design.

As the first design win­ner in sea­son 1, Donald’s first-hand expe­ri­ence of the com­pe­ti­tion has giv­en him empa­thy with the con­tes­tants and he has enjoyed judg­ing each room chal­lenge togeth­er with Katlego Kond­lo of Plas­con and the dis­tin­guished guest judges.

The live finale will cer­tain­ly have view­ers on the edge of their seats as the prizes will ulti­mate­ly change the lives of the win­ners.

For the inte­ri­or design­ers, it’s an excit­ing boost for their careers while the win­ner of the home will find them­selves becom­ing res­i­dents at one of the country’s most sought-after lifestyle estates in the south of Johan­nes­burg.

Expect real thrills, reac­tions and tears as the Grand Finale of the Win a Home com­pe­ti­tion on After­noon Express hits TV screens in a live broad­cast today,  Novem­ber  10,at 4pm on SABC 3.
