Survivor South Africa: Maldives kicks off on Thursday night on M-Net. It will once again be hosted by Nico Panagio, who I rate as a presenter. He’s strong, understands the game and executes the role of Survivor host brilliantly. Now I’ve seen the promos on some of the contestants and they look like an interesting bunch. Here’s a closer look at the Celebs and the Plebs. Check it out.
