Biggest Loser Profile

Khanyi hails from Johannesburg and is a writer, poet, journalist and radio presenter. She has presence and a voice that is sensual and soothing.

“I love singing, performance poetry and telling stories,” she says.

“In my spare time I hang out with writers, poets, groupies and a posse of culture vultures. I attend live concerts, travel as much as possible, listen to music and collect as many CDs as I can lay my hands on.”

She describes herself as an extroverted thinking type and enjoys others’ company as much as she enjoys her own.

“I am feisty and passionate about everything and have a low tolerance level for stupidity, ignorance and apathy.”

Favourite meal? Curry and seafood. Least favourite? Pineapples, Brussels sprouts, raisins, anchovies and amathumbhu (offal).

To prepare herself for the programme she meditated to gain the mental strength required and she tried to be more aware of what she was eating.

“Losing weight will change my life. I will be lighter in every way. I will finally be able to move freely and jump on a trampoline without worrying that it will snap under me.

“I will be more confident to wear anything I want to. It will be great to feel healthy. “
