We talk to the E! host contestant that got the axe

Cape Town – E! Africa's presenter search reality show kicked off on Wednesday evening. 

From the get go The Search: E! Host South Africa contestants were put through their paces. 

Their first challenge was to dial up the most famous person in their contact list which they passed with flying colours. 

The final challenge was a sit-down interview with one of South Africa's top presenters, Bonang Matheba. 

Sian Moss, freelance makeup artist and hair stylist was the first person to turn in her mike. 

We chatted to her about her experience on the show.

How did it feel to be the first person voted off the show?

To be honest, it was expected. I knew this competition would be tough and though I have worked in TV for a number of years, being behind the scenes can only prepare me to a certain extent. Being in front of the camera is exhilarating, but something to get used to. It was an achievement in itself to make the top eight, regardless of being the first contestant eliminated.

What was the best part of this experience?

The best part was gaining such experience. Networking with the talented hosts and guest judges and learning from their experiences. Expanding my talents, and exploring my potential.

The judges gave you their feedback, but how did you feel your interview with Bonang went? 

I was nervous to interview Bonang, not because of who she is, but more because I wasn’t sure what questions to ask. My nerves got the better of me which is why, as the judges said, I came across as too relaxed. Bonang did thank me for being calm, and collected though, so I was happy about that. 

Did you form any friendships during your time on the show?

Friendships were bound to form during this experience. I expected to walk out of there with new friends and great memories, and that’s exactly what I did. When you put a group of creative personalities under one roof, there’s bound to be a positive bond. 

If you could relive the experience what would you do differently? 

I wish that this experience had come at a different time in my life. My boyfriend’s mother was not well at the time which also meant that I was not entirely myself. She was admitted to hospital the day I was eliminated, and passed away a few days later which was heart wrenching. 

Catch The Search: E! Host South Africa Wednesdays at 20:55 on E!(DStv 124).
