Lexi van Niekerk is a South African customer care professional best known for being a contestant on the third season of the Mzansi Magic reality competition television series Big Brother Mzansi, in 2014.
Big Brother Bio
A customer care professional by occupation, 25-year-old Lexi has a diploma in travel and tourism from Rosebank College. Lexi loves listening to music, dancing all night in the club, waking up to live another day and a really delicious home cooked meal.
She also lists dancing, shopping, swimming, learning to cook, sleeping late (sometimes), doing photo shoots, reading and writing as her hobbies.
Lexi says her friends would describe her as "crazy, beautiful, kind, mean, volatile, super-sexy, insane, lazy, messy, different, unique, intelligent, dramatic and a diva!"
She openly admits that she is also messy, tends to procrastinate and takes forever to get ready to go out. Also strongly opposed to the abuse of women, Lexi - who speaks both English and Afrikaans - likes that South Africans are friendly, helpful and open-minded.
Lexi cites a close friend as a role model and says, "She's the most humble person I know. She's caring, selfless, kind, always polite, respectful and she loves me so much." Not surprisingly it was the same friend who gave Lexi some of the best advice she's ever received simply saying, "Don't stop dreaming".
A reality TV fan who rates MasterChef Australia as a great watch, Lexi's favourite actors are Gerard Butler, Tyler Perry and Idris Elba while her favourite actresses include Charlize Theron and Halle Berry. On the music front, she's a fan of Jay Z, Frank Ocean, Mafikizolo, P Square, Rihanna, Beyoncé, Keri Hilson, Davido and Drake.
Expecting to see different personalities and competition on Big Brother Mzansi, Lexi says she wanted to be part of the show because, "I think it's a great platform to be known and recognized by the nation. I also want to entertain people, show my true self and make people fall in love with my personality."
She encourages audiences to watch her on the show because, "I'll show you the dramatic and diva side, but I'll be genuine, honest and beautiful."
And if she wins the big prize, Lexi will invest, pay off her debt and enjoy the money.
