Cape Town - The winner of the 5th annual heat ManWatch scouting competition has been revealed as 23-year-old hottie Rudi Witkowsky.

Rudi’s becomes the first ever Capetonian to win the title, heat revealed on Friday.

The heat ManWatch competition invites regular guys from all over the country to show off their good looks and hot bodies, with contestants vying for readers attentions with campaigns to win votes.

Sexy Rudi confessed that one of his campaigning attempts to get his work colleagues to vote for him via Facebook and e-mails landed him in trouble with his boss. "I received a bit of 'talking to' from one of the directors as I used the work’s email," he said. "Oops! But success doesn’t come easy – you have to work hard for it in order to earn it."

Apart from being a successful model, Rudi is currently training in order to qualify as a chartered accountant after obtaining his honours degree in accounting at the University of Cape Town. And, good news - he is single!

Isidingo role

Rudi explains how he got interested in the ManWatch competition after his modelling agent suggested it to him: "Initially I passed on the idea, but then I thought to myself 'what if I make the top 10 or even win?' I realised that just by making the top 10, let alone winning, it could provide many opportunities for me in furthering my modelling career and possibly open doors in the entertainment industry. So I went for it!" he says.

The ecstatic winner will enjoy a host of cool prizes that are sure to catapult his career, including a R10 000 cash prize, a sizzling photoshoot currently featured in the latest issue of heat magazine, and a walk-on role on popular SABC 3 soapie Isidingo.

"I cannot wait to start preparing," he said of his big TV appearance. "I plan on getting everyone I know to watch it. I’m very excited to meet the cast and getting to know them outside of the show. I’ve always had an interest in acting. My mom is a huge fan of Isidingo," he adds.

Rudi describes himself as someone with a great sense of humour, treasures his family and friends, and lives by the motto "training hard makes playing easier".

Gyms 5 times a week!

Future plans for this year’s heat ManWatch winner include obtaining his chartered accounting qualification. "After my articles in 2015 I would like to travel the world and surf the best surf spots for a year. I would also like to become a well known international model," he says.

In his free time he enjoys surfing, cycling, running, playing touch rugby and squash, hiking, cooking, fishing, strumming his guitar and having a good time with friends. In order to stay in shape, he also goes to the gym five times a week.

"I would like to extend a massive thank you to everyone who voted and supported me throughout this campaign. I truly appreciate it. You guys will always be legends," he concluded.
