      Capso - 2011-05-26 21:42

      So boring, you need to comment on it. Shut up peanut gallery

      Jeremia - 2011-05-26 22:06

      I second that. BORING!

      @Capso. How else was I going to express my boredom withour commenting ! They could have chosen a much bigger variety of contestants.Chuck in a few wild cards, lets have some people from very different walks of life. It's that coming together of the hippie and rocket scientist that as humans intrigues us.

      Robnob no show bores me more than BBA and Survivor. Maybe Survivor had some interesting moments (must have missed them though in my whole 10mins of watching) but BBA is far worse. It may have nothing to do with race though. The show sucks as a whole.

    Christo I hope you are not making a racist comment...

    Christo Alles in hierdie land moet nie alewig gaan of die wit of swart persoon wen nie. As jy die program gekyk het sou jy gesien het wie die spel reg gespeel het en wie die hele tyd 'n skyn vroomheid voorgehou het. Christo ek bid vir jou.

    wow the people in SA can complain about anything. It wasn't boring at all. Maybe they were just over your heads. My favorite didn't, but in the end we have to accept the winner cause after all he did manage to gather the most votes and that is how the rules work

    Both the guys palyed this game well. But congrats to Hykie. I am glad he won, nothing against Letshego.

    Only in South Africa would a celebrity with a booming career get to pocket an extra million bucks in a reality show! How pathetic! Mnet helping the rich get richer????

      Mango - 2011-05-27 09:49

      Ag Craig get a life. Where they supposed to give it to a poor person who did not deserve it. This was a competition, not a charity fund raiser. Hykie deserved this through and through. He might have taken people out who stepped in his path, but that's all part of the game. It's called SURVIVOR!! Sheesh!!

      Mordred - 2011-05-27 13:15

      AH CRAIG, HOW GREEN WITH ENVY YOU ARE THAT ALL YOU CAN THINK OF TO DO IS CRITICISE HYKIE WHO PLAYED A GOOD GAME. YOU ARE SO IGNORANT AS WELL. HE IS A HARDWORKING ACTOR AND IS DEFINITELY NOT WEALTHY. IT JUST SHOWS HOW STUPID AND IGNORANT YOU ARE. HOW IS MNET HELPING THE RICH GET RICHER? HOW COULD THEY WORK IT TO ENSURE THAT HYKIE WOULD WIN? THE ENTIRE SHOW WAS OPEN AND TRANSPARENT WHICH OBVIOUSLY BEING SUCH A DICKHEAD YOU COULD NOT SEE. ASSHOLE, THEY COULD NOT AS THE ENTIRE SHOW WAS THERE FOR EVERYONE TO SEE. ANYWAY CRAIG, YOU ARE OBVIOUSLY A "NOBODY" AND QUITE FRANKLY I DON'T THINK ANYONE CARES WHAT YOU THINK. IT JUST MAKES ME HAPPY TO KNOW THAT BY YOUR COMMENTS YOU WILL BE A VERY SAD, POOR AND LONELY OLD MAN FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE. HURRAY FOR HYKIE.

    Was really dissapointed that Hykie won the million - Letshego definately deserved it! Only thing that they got right was giving the 'oscar' to Hykie - far too dramatic and just plain irritating. Just for entertainment sake it should have been Mzo - he made the show interesting atleast! Prefer to download American Survivor version - the whole show is a little bit more 'professional'. :(

  • Ann - 2011-05-27 08:51

    I think the contest should be for either plebs or celebs - don't mix the two.

  • Gazza69 - 2011-05-27 09:32

    Yawn.....

  • Mordred - 2011-05-27 13:06

    WELL DONE AND CONGRATULATIONS HYKIE. I AM OVER THE MOON AND MY FAMILY SAID YOU WOULD SWEAR THAT I HAD WON THE R1M. HYKIE MUST JUST IGNORE THE NASTY, VINDICTIVE AND ENVIOUS PEOPLE OUT THERE. THEY ARE JUST SO JEALOUS THAT IT WAS NOT ONE OF THEM.

  • reader4444@24.com - 2011-05-27 13:23

    Zzzzzzzzzzzzz zzzzzzzzzzzzz z-z-z-z-z-z-z-z..............

  • Marshall - 2011-05-27 15:58

    Hykie is a tool!

  • Lynn - 2011-05-27 19:36

    He did NOT deserve to win. The fact that the producers changed the rules to have the two blonde bimbos as judges (over and above the normal quota) proves that the game is rigged..... Is he GAY???? Is that why the chilli voted for him???? Just checking..
