Sweethearts from Soweto, Ace and Ntombi, have been crowed winners of the 2015 Big Brother Mzansi – Double Trouble yesterday, walking away with R2 million cash prize.
It was always going to be a hugely emotional and highly dramatic Finale, and it certainly was just that, starting with the winner results being placed in a secure Perspex box on stage where it would be kept until it was time for the big announcement.
Three pairs remained in the game at the start of the show, and for Blue and K2 as well as Chelsea and Mbali the night was bittersweet as they came so close to scooping the title. But while that wasn’t meant to be, both pairs can be confident in the knowledge that they too are stars in their own right having succeeded in making it all the way to the big Finale.
Tonight’s show boasted an all-star music line-up and the excitement in the air must have added a magic element because they delivered unforgettable performances.
From superstar AKA’s sizzling rendition of All Eyes On Me, featuring Jr and Da Lez, to Busiswa’s epic Lahla, the Big Brother stage become home to a powerhouse celebration of South African talent.
And not to be outdone, the last performance of the night was delivered by none other than TradeMark, featuring Durbn Nyts & Zintle, with their hit track Shumaya.
Also in studio providing their very own perspective on the events of the evening and ensuring that fan opinions were very much part of the night, were the gorgeous pair of Dineo Ranaka and Kuli Roberts, reprising their launch night roles as celebrity commentators.
But despite all the star power on display, the night belonged to the six remaining Housemates and the show recapped their triumphs and challenges throughout the season.
From Ace and Ntombi who never once won the Head of House title but took top honours in the Double or Nothing Challenge Dance Off, to the girl power pact of Chelsea and Mbali who worked hard to win many challenges and stash some cash along the way; and of course including fierce competitors Blue and K2 who also won challenges galore, the Top 3 Pairs definitely earned their right to be in the Finale.
The Big Brother Mzansi: Double Trouble Finale also paid tribute to their fellow Housemates who began the journey with them and who departed the show at different times along the way.
One of the highlights of the Finale was an insert featuring Soxx and Tembi, who evicted last week, just one week shy of the Finale.
Looking happy and relaxed the pair was philosophical about their exit, chatting easily about their experiences on the game, their highs and lows plus their predictions about who would win the big prize.
