Cape Town – Nothing better than a good old stroll down memory lane on a Thursday. For this week's #ThrowbackThursday we caught up with the 2001 winner of the very first Big Brother.

Who can forget the charming Mr Rabie who allowed us to indulge in our stalker fantasies by watching a group of complete strangers live in a house together?

We were glued to our screens as we observed every meal, fight, party and shower hour on our TV's.

Ferdinand got nostalgic with us as we asked about his past, present en future.

Check it out here:


"What have you been up to since Big Brother?"


"I've been hard at work with my tour company, Ferdinand's Tours & Adventures, that will turn 20 next year. I am still doing tours and events for corporates. We also do international tours in our beautiful country."



"Do you still keep in touch with anyone from the house?"


"I'm still very much in contact with Margaret, Leigh and Steven."


What about Brad?


"Who is Brad?"


"Do you still eat cucumbers?"


"Cucumbers? Love it!"


"If there was a big Brother reunion show would you participate?"


"I would love that! I would definitely go back. I love marketing and that is a great platform."


"What has it been like to be a father. Have you settled down?"


"I’m the best father in South Africa! From changing nappies and feeding him milk from birth."

"My son has the most beautiful manners and personality like his dad but is as beautiful as his mother."
