Thembisa Mdoda is bidding farewell to the show after three seasons as its presenter. Now the show has opened auditions to everyone for the top job.

“Thembisa Mdoda’s contract has come to an end. We thank her for her commitment and contribution to the success of OPW,” says Nondumiso Mabece, Head of Publicity at M-Net Local Entertainment Channels.

“We are looking forward to the exciting journey the show will be taking, opening up the platform for a hidden gem, a new face with untapped talent. This is an opportunity not to be missed,” says Nondumiso.

However, in the meantime, Nomsa Buthelezi returns as the host while OPW is looking for a new face. “The new presenter will need to have a warm personality to match and the ability to connect with the viewers,” explains Nondumiso.

The reality wedding show, which documents the real-life journeys of ordinary South Africans as they create their perfect wedding day, continues to own Sunday night viewing by creating weddings that keep South Africans talking and now they’re looking for you.

Here’s what you need to know to prepare for the auditions:

Contestants must be 25 years old and upwards, should be South African citizens with a valid South African ID. The potential presenter will be auditioned by the producers and shortlisted for a second round of auditions. A panel of judges will select the contestants that will battle it out for the public vote in the final phase.
